A blog for Cleese, Chapman and Gilliam

I noticed that Terry Jones, Michael Palin and Eric Idle all have "drool" or otherwise forums or blogs. I haven't come across any for the other three yet, but I'm probably not the only one who thinks they deserve to have their own "drool" page. So I desided to start one. If there already are such pages on Pythonline I'd like to read them so please let me know where to find them.

Here are some photos to get us started:

The 20th Century Vole sketch from Flying Circus. It was in series one

If you're going to split hairs, I'm going to piss off!

It reminds me of "Twentieth-Century Vole," but you're probably right. I really don't know.

Flying Circus, alright.. Can't remember the name of the sketch (can't check it, I'm at the office), I believe you remember...."splunge"? :D

Biiig big movie producer..

Please be gentle with me, I come to pieces, literally!

Maybe I'm an idiot, but not a fool.

They all do a superb job.

...I read your post about the Twentieth Century Vole I remembered that sketch. I don't know why I forgot about it.

Thanks for posting the video :)

CamelSpotter at 8:27 pm January 28

It's one of my favorites - I'm happy for any excuse to watch it again!

arkennedy: ...The Colonel. My favorite character Graham played.

arkennedy: If anyone wants more information about these photos try this link: http://www.dailyllama.com/news/2002/llama143.html

arkennedy: ...looking at a photo of Gilliam.

arkennedy: Terry Gilliam with Jodelle Ferland (who played Jeliza-Rose and did a few voices).

arkennedy: I'm not sure what it's from.

CamelSpotter at 11:30 pm January 25

I believe that's from the Dead Parrot sketch in "And Now for Something Completely Different." I'm not sure, though.

It's gotta be, the cage and... *grunts* the coat...

Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition!

arkennedy: Pronounced: "Throatwobbler Mangrove"

arkennedy: "This is Abuse"

arkennedy: I'm thinking of seeing if it's possible to order this dvd.

kisch at 2:27 am January 23

I kind of didn't know it was released on DVD ! Wow, I should definitely find it and buy it ! The whole thing was on YouTube once and I was quick enough to see bits of it before it got removed.
Thank you for reminding me of that !

arkennedy: At least that's what the website said. Could anyone tell me what this pic is from?

Jatta at 2:38 am January 24

He really looks pretty in that dress.
My favourite part of the movie too :)

Anything goes...

crzyltvn at 6:26 pm January 22

That is one of my favorite scenes in that movie.

Well you're dead now, so shut up!

arkennedy: Terry Gilliam

arkennedy: Graham Chapman.

arkennedy: John Cleese and Connie Booth (Fawlty Towers)

arkennedy: ...of Cleese Chapman and Gilliam.

arkennedy: Here is a photo of Graham that may or may not be a rare photo. Anyway I had never seen it before yesterday.

arkennedy: Can anyone tell what John is holding in this pic? It looks like a small dog to me but I could be wrong. This pic is a screencap from a video but I don't know which video because someone else posted the screencap on another website.

arkennedy: wearing that shirt again :)

arkennedy: A nice pic of Gillaim. I just found this photo of Graham yesterday. Also I wonder what John was pointing at?

DoryPython at 2:04 am January 21

I want Grahams splunge-sweater!!!

Maybe I'm an idiot, but not a fool.

I enjoyed watching the video. It would be great to meet Terry Gilliam in a situation like that. To help a poor studio-less filmmaker...

I rarely get to see Gilliam interacting with the public like that. Nice.

25 bucks an hour.. Hehe, pays well! ;)

Please be gentle with me, I come to pieces, literally!

arkennedy: According to YouTube this is a very rare version on the sketch:

arkennedy: This pic is from the Italian Lessons Sketch:

Jatta at 4:14 am January 17

Graham was so lovely in the lederhosen :)

Anything goes...

arkennedy: Another Gilliam photo in which I'm guessing he's explaining something.

crzyltvn at 1:23 pm January 16

I think he's explainging Gilliam Rap. It's like gangsta rap except actual music and quite amazing.
"I made Brazil, with the sweet sweet song. I scored and got DeNiro, for a lot less dinero!"

Well you're dead now, so shut up!

arkennedy: Sherlock Cleese

arkennedy: I found this while searching in yahoo images http://images.search.yahoo.com/images;_ylt=A0geu.87N3BJTesAmDSl87UF?ei=U...

arkennedy: Can anyone tell me what this green thing John is holding is?

MattInTheWallet at 6:14 am January 15

.. the green monster from Canadian candid camera called Just For Laughs.

**Cheeky Monkeys, Cheeky Monkeys!**

arkennedy at 1:24 pm January 15

It looks like you're right. Thanks.

MattInTheWallet at 1:50 pm January 15

John there looks like he doesn't like it. But it is a cute monster toy... I would like one!

**Cheeky Monkeys, Cheeky Monkeys!**

arkennedy: ... don't say "matress". :)

arkennedy: I'm pretty sure this photo is already in the gallery. It's one of my favorites of Gilliam so I've decided to post it here.
