This is a good task. It should be approved.

I love this. Who wants to do a patriotic BBQ this winter? Or an egg hunt? Or go to Santacon dressed as Cupid?

I'm nervous about the egg hunt, we all remember what happened the last time you went around hiding things.

I'd be down for the barbecue as long as Sam doesn't bring the drinks.

I clearly need to start doing more non-lethal tasking. I'm getting a rep.

You could just roll the other way and embrace it. In the crazy sitcom that's life in SF0, you can be the weird uncle who shows up every few episodes and initially complicates things for the sitcom-dysfunctional family, but eventually offers some perspective they hadn't thought of and delivers some down-to-earth, but lovably quirky advice.

I'd be the good-natured but dopey comic relief character who occasionally has flashes of wisdom that only last as long as the episode dictates for a satisfactory denoument; Bex could be a protagonist well-loved by the audience who is conspicuously written out in an early season, only to be brought back by fan demand for the show's revival; and Lincoln could be the live-wire breakout character who winds up with his own spin-off show that is inexplicably more successful than the original.

So... I'm The Simpsons?
Or The Jeffersons?
Or Frasier?
Or Laverne & Shirley?

Or... Xena: Warrior Princess!

I like the idea of a laugh track while Archer murders us all one by one.

If Lincoln is Xena then:
CM his Gabrielle?
Archer is Calisto or Ares God of War?
Amoeba is Joxer/Ted Raimi?
I'm... Bruce Campbell/Autoclytus?

And sfØ itself is Hercules? Whoa.

Or maybe SFØ is Buffy.
SSI are Joss Whedon. Or Giles.
Lincoln is Angel.
Amoeba is Xander.
Archer is the Hellmouth.
I'm, what, The Master? Willow? Spike? Darla?

We gotta throw a kickstarter for SFZero: The Series. Dibs on Mark Hamill doing the voice work for Amoeba Man if it's animated.

Angel. Yes. Angel. My favorite spinoff. +1

I've always wanted to write SFØ the musical. Complete with romance, illegal activity, awesome costumes and songs like "the meaning of the shplank."

Also, Sam, we need someone causing havoc to keep things interesting. SFØ is a zombie movie, and your fascination with the dead might be what brings it back to life!

I wanna be Wash so that I can curse Sam's sudden but inevitable betrayal.

Also, now I can't stop thinking of the SF0 musical. All original songs, except Lincoln's number is a rendition of "I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For", completely unaltered.

Preparations are under way for praxis to happen in SF, probably the weekend before Christmas (weather permitting). Message me if you want to take part in my bold vision.

On the July 4th Day of Christmas my SSI gave to me... +2

Aye, we've had one Halloween, yes. But what about Second Halloween?

I love the idea of celebrating Shark Week. The ritual of distributing bits of chocolate across the place to appease the Evil Spirits. The magic Journey of Get Lost and Stay There (and Finally Get Things Done). And best of all, we get to celebrate it twelve times a year!

Woo! \o/

Seasonal Denial by Sam Archer December 26th, 2012 11:11 PM

My idea for this started with "Easter egg hunt in winter" and eventually expanded to include as many different holidays as I could cram into plastic eggs. Red envelopes (complete with money), for Chinese New Year. Beads for Mardi Gras. Candies...
