Terms of endearment

Filed under: Gil Thorp, lessons learned, Marty Moon, Pissy faced Gil, Pissy faced Marty — robmize2013 @ 3:01 pm

Ok – – first of all – sorry profusely about yesterday. Yes I was busy but I still had a bit of time to knock this out and just plain forgot. I know you dont mind  That Much… so here goes…

The terms of Martys punishment are being laid out both today (Friday) and tomorrow (today). He has to go back to school (yikes) and learn Latin-American  history. Maybe if we’re lucky he will learn to speak Latin too. Everyone that speaks Latin is dead, or will be shortly. So good luck with that.

Its an online class so he can do it in his underwear, or better yet, in the buff. Nobodys looking.

And – how about this — he will broadcast a girls game for the first time. Woo-hoo. I guess all those other games the box narration was the “announcer”.

Plus he has 2 more weeks to not announce basketball like all the other basketball announcers who have been done since oh, April 2nd. Well there’s still the NBA but we arent counting that.

How about how the kids get away with the shenanagans involving distracting a paid announcer from doing his job, and he gets punished but they get off scott free? Comment on that if you want..

Unsold ad time? Why not use that time to give public service messages about the situation in Puerto Rico?

Again thanks for your patience. We now resume regularly scheduled programming.

Cant anybody here do this job??

Filed under: Gil Thorp, Just plain sad, Marty Moon, Milford Idiots — robmize2013 @ 8:19 pm

Gil runs into the station manager at WDIG who tells him Marty may get his job back if Gil tells the tall girl who started all this MPN nonsense to endorse it. And if she doesnt endorse it he wont. Double negative. Whats the future of MPN now that the Pirate Parrot guy doesnt want to do it because Marty lost his job? Why is the girl as tall as Gil? Whats the point of all this if the basketball season is over anyway, which it should’ve been a month ago?

And the elephant in the room? WHY ON GODS GREEN EARTH DOES MARTY MOON HAVE TO BE THE ONLY FUCKIN PERSON ON PLANET EARTH THATS CAPABLE OF BROADCASTING A GOD DAMN TINY ASS HIGH SCHOOLS’ BASKETBALL GAMES THAT NOBODY GIVES A FLYING FUCK ABOUT AND WHOSE PRIMARY CHARACTERS IN THIS PLOT HAVE BEEN FORGOTTON ABOUT BECAUSE OF SOME DUMB ASS PIRATE NETWORK THATS NOW OUT OF BUSINESS??? CANT ANYBODY ELSE IN THIS MORONIC SCHOOL SIT BEHIND A GOD DAMN MICROPHONE AND DESCRIBE MEANINGLESS BASKETBALL ACTION 2 FUCKIN MONTHS AFTER EVERYONE ELSE IN THE SHIT-ASS UNIVERSE IS DONE PLAYING????

Where’s the Excedrin?

Martys a bum, bar none.

Filed under: Bare Midriffs, Gil Thorp, Marty Moon, Pissy faced Gil, Pissy faced Marty — robmize2013 @ 7:50 pm

Another week rolls by and its Marty and Gil meeting in a bar. I have to say, I’ve never seen a bar drawn in all my years of reading this strip, and here the waitress is drawn with an outfit more suited to IHOP. The bars I go to they dress way more casual/ skimpy. I was with a group on St. Patricks Day a few years ago and we got kicked out of Tilted Kilt because there was a pay per view fight on and they didnt think we were spending enough money. Now THOSE are outfits I approve of.

Now we have this meeting. How many days for this? Bar closes at 2am so I’m sure they’ll use it all. What else can they say besides – I’m a dickwad, yes you are, stop those kids from screwing up my broadcast, I’m a coach not a policeman (or so I say) etc.

Dont expect to see another game for a few days as these 2 hash out not only the current predicament but all the underlying tension of their 50-year relationship. Again, we’ve forgotton completely about the whole issue in the first place, which was Marty taking liberties with Chicos name (remember Chico kids??)

Anyway, drinks are on me. Cheers!

MPN improves its image

Filed under: actual action, basketball, Gil Thorp, Marty Moon, Milford Weirdos — robmize2013 @ 4:23 pm

Well I have to say I like the hot chick in the MPN shirt way better then the clown in the pirate hat with his parrot. Hey I’ll even go to games to see her instead of Mister Pirate. Heck with staying home on Youtube. But how the hell are they listening to Marty that closely that they can hear his mistakes?? I’ve sat next to broadcasters before (High School Cube mostly ) and you can hear them, but its not like you really Listen to them with the supposed roar of the crowd. So again we have one good thing and one bad thing. If its good drawing its nonsense dialogue. If its good dialogue its shitty artwork.

How they got the logoed shirts is somewhat a mystery but its possible these days with the internet and ordering obscure stuff from obscure websites. My fantasy baseball teams name  is the Flying Tigers and I have a logo And a t-shirt with a design on it that I wear proudly during baseball season.

Back to the artwork — what the hell is that guy doing with his arms up to Martys left? Starting a wave? And who runs like that in basketball? Looks like a fuckin track meet. # 13 is looking the other way and NOT RUNNING. No wonder Marty cant concentrate – he isnt sure what sport he’s announcing anymore. Of course I’d have other issues :)

Repeat after me – I am a moron

Filed under: freak hands, Gil Thorp, Just plain sad, lame jokes, Milford Idiots, Milford Weirdos — robmize2013 @ 7:08 pm

And the strip gets bogged down into repetitive stuff we saw yesterday as Pirate Boy continues his ‘Tubecast’ to … who knows. Maybe the Bucket picks this up on its one TV it has behind the counter. We were going along just fine and now like a crap that wont come out, we’re stuck watching a clown in a pirate hat wonder what he does next after inciting Marty to call him exactly what he is.

Why is Marty standing now? Last game and all the others he was sitting. I know theyre on the road but for chisssakes give the man a seat. Standing is for TV analysts like .. pirate guy . Ah forget it.

P3 – who knows why the MPN is showing on top of the main attraction; I personally find it more attractive then a guy in a pirate hat trying to be funny. I get it – the Pirate Network ‘steals’ someone elses broadcast and makes it their own – but one is a radio show and the other is on YouTube, a visual medium. And the Buc doesnt even know the score of the game, which in my experience is no biggie. Most fans these days are watching their smartphones instead of intently following the action.  But a scoreboard isnt That hard to read now is it?

Advancing the plot tomorrow wont be easy  -what will we see besides the score? Will Marty walk out again? Will the girls social media overdrive effort be rewarded with a Moon removal from the radio? Will Gil get involved before its too late to save the season? Will Kaz punch out Marty before he can break the pirates neck? Will the Joker appear and destroy everything in Milford City and capture the pirate and his mate?  Tune in tomorrow – same Milford time, same Milford station!

How about a little competition?

Filed under: Gil Thorp — robmize2013 @ 9:17 pm

I feel a hot breath on my shoulder

The kids are chanting my name over

I need to say that Mexican name

Even if he’s Puerto Rican.

 

I’m on a Marty Moon Radio…

I’m on a Marty Moon whoo- oh  Radio

 

We got a dude from Tijuana

The Buckets serving barbecued iguana.

Gil is pounding doctored lemonade

Doctor Pearl is coming to his aid.

 

I’m on a Marty Moon Radio

I’m on a Marty Moon whoo -oh Radio

Its not gonna work

Filed under: basketball, Gil Thorp, Marty Moon, Steve Luhm's Ghost Mops These Floors — robmize2013 @ 8:31 pm

Marty appeals to Gil to stop the shenanagans behind him so he can do his broadcast in peace and quiet. Where’s his analyst by the way? Paul Strange? It would help if he had a partner in crime so to speak, or even a sound man. Dont most radio broadcasts need several people to make it work from a remote location like a basketball arena?  Is Marty really doing this alone? If so how? Any radio experts out there who can help? I’ve been in the stands and seen people doing radio broadcasts up high in the stands (also High School Cube works like this).

How about 3 panels that not only move the plot along, they make sense. A completely normal exchange given the situation. Marty could ask the PA announcer or the school officials to quiet the students, but pretty much anything goes at these games unless it gets physical. Chanting and group demonstrations in the stands are pretty much ok. I think Marty will have to deal with this between games. He may want to move his location to another part of the arena next time, but it may not work. Good stuff for a change!

I smell a protest

Filed under: basketball, Marty Moon — robmize2013 @ 8:31 pm

So what appears to be happening is the girls basketball team will gather somewhat en masse at the next boys basketball game to chant “Marty Sucks!” or something of that nature. Led by Jadine, or perhaps the brunette big haired girl, they will sport signs, bugels, and other paraphanalia all in the name of stopping Marty from referring to Primo (remember that name from way back? Last month?) in a derogatory way, or so they think. Yeah now he goes by Jorge but whatever..

Here’s what I think: Hardly anybody gives a flying fuck what some dude on a local high school radio station says. High school kids these days havent listened to the radio more then 5 minutes a day since the Iphone became a thing. They have music streamed into their earbuds as they text away and Snapchat photos of the latest Justin Beiber sighting to each other before the latest Facebook update. Who’s got time to sit on a bed in your house and listen to a radio and do…. NOTHING ELSE???

I think we traveled this road before some years back when some new Milford athlete   had some fans dressed up with big hats of some kind in the stands and creating a ruckus at a road game. Need help with those details…

At least we have a storyline that isnt entirely populated by idiots; but its so unrealistic in this day and age to pull off a stunt like the one the girls are planning. And believe me, Marty wont change a bit. But the girls think otherwise. Stay tuned!!
