Trixi- Most of the hippies have succumbed to gum disease by now, so we're just stuck with a few leftovers and general weirdos. For example: I was leaving campus one evening (I'm a grad student) and, as I was walking by, a man climbed head-first out of a small tree (or large bush), crawled a few feet on his hands and toes, then stood up and walked off. That kind of thing.

And Jen, I know just what you mean. I've lived on the San Francisco Bay my whole life and I've never been to Alcatraz.

1) My names Ashleigh although i despise it and so most people call me Monty now (i was going to be called Montana when i was born so ive taken on an abreviation for that and also because of Monty Python.) My screenname is probably known by most on the board anyway.
2)Ive been a Palin fan for a while without knowing it. Ever since I saw 'Wind and the Willows' i guess.
3)14...15 in half a year.
4)Well, I dont mind travelling but i could never do what Michael does. I love my creature comforts too much(in addition to despise flying.) But the furthest ive travelled is England and USA. Not very exciting although i did enjoy them both.
5)Im hopefully visiting Canada next year although I hope to get away before then.
6) Sydney, Australia. I dont think we have to much spam here....
7) Well, ive only really seen 'Sahara' and only bits and pieces of the others because they were screened a while back so i guess i cant really say. I enjoyed Sahara though.
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Miss-M on 11 January 2003 9:18am
Hello all! Since we're introducing ourselves I thought I'd add my two cents worth!

1)My name is Michelle, hence the online name 'Miss-M' - not extremely original compared with some of the other nicks on here! *sobs*

2)I became an admirer of Michael after watching LIFE OF BRIAN last month. I'd seen the film about two or three years earlier but my admiration for Monty Python, and Mr. Palin in particular, didn't take hold back then. (What on earth was I thinking??) Last night I watched the final episode of FLYING CIRCUS - I have now seen all four series! For me, Michael is the most talented and versatile of the group. It would be nice to see him back on the big screen in the not-too-distant future, preferably in projects which are close to his heart, like AMERICAN FRIENDS :)

3)I'm 22...

4)I enjoy travelling although I haven't been off-shore yet. The furthest I've travelled is New South Wales and Queensland. I used to go to beach a lot when I was a kid though :)

5)Oneday I hope to visit Europe and the US...

6) I'm from Melbourne, Victoria, Australia. Melbourne was recently named the 'world's most liveable city' - a wondeful honour although since I've never travelled abroad, I can't really verify it myself! Would anybody else like to confirm/deny this? *Hehe* Maybe I can ask Michael his opinion when he visits later this month!

7) I'm currently watching HEMINGWAY ADVENTURE which has so far been very entertaining and insightful. I'm looking forward to viewing the other travellogues as soon as I can locate copies of them all.

Yep, I guess that's about it!

Cheers all,
Michelle :)

Michelle...where on earth did you find the 4th series??

And that question goes for any of you, specifically Americans. I have yet to see the 4th series of Flying Circus (actually, it *was* only called 'Monty Python' during that series, was is not?) and I'm really curious to see how it will live up to the previous 3 series, given the changes.

Any clues on how I could get a hold of these (as they're not in A&E's catalog) would be greatly greatly appreciated.

And keep those intros coming in, folks! Don't forget to sign up at Kelley's Palinite page!

I was fortunate to find all four series of FLYING CIRCUS in the local video stores. You're right though - the fourth series was known simply as MONTY PYTHON but on video here they released all the epsiodes under the full title of MPFC.

A lot of people believe the first two series contain their best work, but this is not to say that the third and fourth series are not worth watching. While some are clearly more humorous than others, I personally found something amusing in every episode they made!

Michelle :)

Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by JAC on 11 January 2003 2:01pm
Hi all thought I would add my two bits worth to the introductions.

*)My name is Julie, JAC are my initials so that is where that came from. Nothing to original or exciting but you get that.
*)I first discovered MP when I saw Around the world in 80 days back in 1989/90. Who can beleive that that was 13/14 years ago.
*)I am 31 but that will soon change being an Aquarius.
*)Travel...emigrated as a 10pound pom with my folks back in the 70's. Landed in Melbourne for around 10 years and then moved over here to Perth. I have been back to Melbourne twice (love the place).

I also have been back to the UK three times now most recently in Oct 2000 while I was pregnant with "number 2".
*)Next trip, well with the kids it will be a trip down south to a local caravan park, the tent to sit back and chill.
*)My favourite Palin travellogue would have to be Around the world. After all that is where it started.
Hope that you all are smilin'

SingDino, I am delighted that we have something in common. I also like the Rat Pack but I don't know as much as I'd like to about them. I have Singing in the Rain on video. It took me month's to find it. Stuff like that is not easy to find in this country. I have been a huge fan of all those guys since I saw them as a small kid. I even took tap lessons and a bit of piano. What other interests do you have besides of course our fantastic Mr. Palin?
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by RichB on 12 January 2003 3:52am
Sorry SingDino, but Frank Sinatra is the greatest. Even though they were all cool, Dean and Sammy couldn't hold a candle to Frank.
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by MissTrixiB on 12 January 2003 3:57am
(thanks for enjoying the thread kiddo's ;) )
Now, all this talk of Singing In The Rain, Gene Kelley and Fred Astaire reminds me of an incredible little film called 'Funny Face'. I can't think of a person that I admire more than Audrey Hepburn. The fact that she gets to sing in her own slightly faulty alto voice makes it all the more sweet. That, I think, gives 'Singing' a run for it's money (BOTH are fine films).
I got the box set of the Python series and I swear it has it all. Could be wrong, but I like to swear ;)
Keep it up....I'm having a great time reading these!
Re: MORE introductions (for everyone) by Rusted on 12 January 2003 9:08am
I'm planning on a trip to a city nearby soon to take a look at their video collections. (I live in a city of 60,000 and there's not one video/media store!) I'm hoping to find some of that Michael and Python stuff I'm looking for. Better bring the checkbook!

Trixi, where did you get the boxset? The only one I've seen is the A&E one which appears to have only the first 3 series. They have that at my local library, at the Pythonline shop, and at Amazon.com. So I'm getting kinda desperate as to where to turn!
