Dr. Moonbeam and the denim leisure suit. Title of a bad zombie flick or name of a rock band?

fun meme!

lol, it could go either way, but my tendency would have to lean towards the bad zombie flick.

Ok, what sort of marketting potential do we have for 'Dr. moonbeam and the denim leisure suit?'

who do we see as the stars of this next monster summer blockbuster? I think steve buscemi needs to be involved here. his strange looks and the wood chipper scene from fargo convince me.

At 10:37 AM, Blogger James Goodman said...

Oh, absolutely. Perhas we can get Bruce Campbell as the ambiguous protag: "Good...bad...I'm the guy with the gun."

Oh, and it must have Samuel L. Jackson in it. I also feel strongly about it having Jessica Alba, Shannon Elizabeth and quite possible Liv Tyler in it as well. Oh, and we can't forget Matthew Mcouneghey (there's no way I spelled that right, but you know who I mean.)

Awwww...a denim suit--how adorable! I love your mom's handy work. I've been over to visit her when she's cross-stitching, which is something I have done too. She's so talented and has more patience than me with that sort of thing.

Okay, I'll play along--watch out for my responses to this meme!

At 6:25 AM, Blogger James Goodman said...

lol, that she is. I'll stop by and check your answers out.

I have to tell you, there are several frightening answers in this meme.
Between your affection for the undead and your demin leisure suit, I am not entirely sure these are safe shores.

At 3:55 AM, Blogger James Goodman said...

lol, that's a good point, but for the record I wouldn't unleash an Army of the dead here. I do have a few choice locations picked out though. :D

What's in a Goodman Omelet?

When I went to Cozumel back in April, they were coming along nicely. It will be at least 10 years before the trees will be back but the water and beaches were fine and I can't forget the people...finest people on earth.

At 12:08 PM, Blogger James Goodman said...

Ah, yeah...they were so friendly. I can't wait to get back there.

A Goodman Omelet is a monstrous concoction. With bacon, sausage, ham, onions, tomatoes, mushrooms, swiss cheese, velvetta and various spices. Oh, man...my mouth's watering just typing it. :D
