Coming Soon: Larryoke 2: The Strangening

I decided to take this week off because I needed the rest. My 2018 was a long, often fraught year and I hope 2019 is better for all of us.

Here’s the best thing that will happen in 2019: this blog will be finished, Perfect Strangers as a cultural phenomenon will be re-interred in its pauper’s grave, and I can go back to a reasonable dose of anti-psychotics.

When we hit the end of Season 4, we celebrated with a livestream event where we watched a few episodes of Perfect Strangers, film trailers, and that one scene from Risky Business where Bronson holds the door open for 100 ladies.

I also subjected you to Perfect Strangers-themed parody lyrics I wrote for popular songs, and which I forced my friends to sing at knifepoint.

Well, we’re going to do it all again this Saturday, May 4, and I hope you’ll all be there to help me make fun of this show and try to kill it for good this time. There will be a live chat and it will not be family friendly. You can swear to your heart’s content, you can share your wildest fantasies of the cousins kissing, you can tell Larry to start his car, or you can just sit back and listen to me sing “Gorpley Irresistible”. The Larryoke songs won’t be family-friendly either. Just warning you.

Larryoke 2: The Secret of the Cuz will feature seven Perfect Strangers episodes, oodles of (>10) Larryoke songs, and more goodies than you can shake your imaginary tits at. We’ll be making merry from 7PM to Midnight EST, but if you’re a furry alien locked up in an underground government bunker and don’t know your timezone, the Facebook event will tell you when to show up. I’ll announce the “location” there and here when we’re closer to it.

Not only can you have a lot of fun at Larryoke 2: the Legend of Larry’s Hole, you can also help your fellow humans out with a fundraiser I’ll call Frank Aid. I’ll have a page set up collecting funds for the American Society for Suicide Prevention and I’ll post the link right before the event.

I can’t speak to the 300 other Perfect Strangers review bloggers’ experiences, but I wouldn’t have made it this far without all of you readers.

Now that I’ve sufficiently buttered you up, I need your help. The episodes I’ll show haven’t been decided on yet. Tell you what: I’ll pick two, and you all can pick five. Use the survey below to let me know which episodes you’d be interested in seeing during Larryoke 2: Die, Darkman, Die. You can select multiple episodes per season and it’ll show me which are the most popular.

Survey for Larryoke: Back 2 Mypos

The final list of episodes will be a surprise to you on Saturday, May 4, 2019 at 7PM EST. I hope you can make it so we can all join in on the chorus of “Disco Gazebo”.

Next week: a review of “Get Me to the Dump On Time” that doesn’t require you to have read half the Western literary canon.
