From sketch duo Brian and Maria comes an installment from a mock series called "Ask a Network Head." What follows the age-old question about MTV programming is perhaps the most brutal verbal takedown you'll hear all year.
After watching all of the 113 episodes of Pinky and the Brain, I give you the (now really) COMPLETE list of all 85 "Are you pondering what I'm pondering" list!!
The clips are extracted from material originally copyrighted by Warner Brothers, but hopefully falls under fair use as a fan tribute and is intended to promote the old now off-air show not intended to plagiarize or infringe on any copyrights.
The Traditional Art of Storytelling.
The seanachaí made use of a range of storytelling conventions, styles of speech and gestures that were peculiar to the Irish folk tradition and characterized them as practitioners of their art. Although tales from literary sources found their way into the repertoires of the seanchaithe, a traditional characteristic of their art was the way in which a large corpus of tales was passed from one practitioner to another without ever being written down.
Because of their role as custodians of an indigenous non-literary tradition, the seanachaí are widely acknowledged to have inherited -- although informally -- the function of the filí(poets) of pre-Christian Ireland.
Some seanachaí were itinerants, traveling from one community to another offering their skills in exchange for food and temporary shelter. Others, however, were members of a settled community and might be termed "village storytellers."
The distinctive role and craft of the seanchaí is particularly associated with the Gaeltacht (the Irish-speaking areas of Ireland), although storytellers recognizable as seanachaí were also to be found in rural areas throughout English-speaking Ireland. In their storytelling, some displayed archaic Hiberno-English idiom and vocabulary distinct from the style of ordinary conversation.
Eamon Kelly (1914 -- October 24, 2001) was an Irish actor and author.
Kelly was born in Sliabh Luachra, County Kerry, Ireland. The son of Ned Kelly and Johanna Cashman, Eamon left school at age 14 to become an apprentice carpenter to his father, a wheelwright. He first became interested in acting after viewing a production of Juno and the Paycock.
Both an actor and storyteller, he became a member of the RTÉ actors group in 1952. He is best known for his performances of storytelling on stage, radio, and television. As an actor, he worked extensively with both the Gate Theatre and Abbey Theatre in Dublin. He was also nominated for a 1966 Tony Award in the category Actor, Supporting, or Featured (Dramatic) for his role in Brian Friel's Philadelphia, Here I Come.
In the opening Episode of Season 8 "Road to the Multiverse", Stewie and Brian get their hands on a transportation device to carry them between alternate dimensions, visiting various versions of their current reality, before making it home.
BRIAN KILMEADE: We keep marrying other species and other ethnics--
GRETCHEN CARLSON: Are you sure you are not suffering from some of the causes of dementia right now?
BRIAN KILMEADE: The problem is the Swedes have pure genes. They marry other Swedes, that's the rule. Finns marry other Finns; they have a pure society. In America we marry everybody. We will marry Italians and Irish.
