The Birthday Boys: “Rock and Roll” Recap

Hello, I am friend to David Ferguson of The Birthday Boys. My name is Tiggi. I have spent many days with the Ferguson family as exchange student. Even I have shared a bathroom with David. Maybe even seeing his boto. Kakaka! I am now back in my homeland of Borivar, where it is sad grey. I am excited to write this recap for David’s behalf.

Episode 4 is naming “Rock AND Roll.” This is cool for me for I have bang my head to the music of rock at all times.

The show it starts with a very funny video scene with two cool guys get the lucky tickets to a musical rocking concert (a real head banger I’m not doubting), but the adventures to retrieve the tickets gets rather unusually. I laughed until I shot Duku juice from my nose. Kakaka!

Then in the TV I see a short video scene featuring my favorite American actor Ben Stiller. I love him in Mystery Men and all his movies. In this scene he acts as a school teacher who has crossed of the line of behaving! What a star is bright in Stiller here. I am can’t wait for the Walter Mitty film as it comes to premiering in my movie house in less of 35 years from this day!

Things go very sexy in another video scene when a group of cool guys are surprising of their friend with the strippers. I had to turn off of my monitor for this scene for fear that my mother would see the content and whip me with her bakashka rope. My wounds have not of yet healed from when my father he sees me with inkjet picture printing of my favorite girl Daisy Fuentes in a small swimming smock. Yeah baby! Behave, baby. Groovy. Kaka! Yeah! (from Austin the Powerful, 2011)

Ben Stiller appears to screen again in the show as musician (a real head banger in years of past without the doubt). He speaks on “influences” of his music. And let me tell to your ear that the roots of American rocking music are more surprising than finding your prize sheep in the manger of a Goldovan herder. Kakaka! Again the juice from my nose they flowed.

Finally, The Birthday Boys go to Hell. I wish on my last cot this scene had not been so very scary. I fear my death now more than ever.

Goodbye! Also, English is my first language here!

Millennial Wisdom

Charles Speaks For Us All

Get to know Charles, the social media whiz of Brockmire.

Posted by on

He may be an unlikely radio producer Brockmire, but Charles is #1 when it comes to delivering quips that tie a nice little bow on the absurdity of any given situation.

Charles also perfectly captures the jaded outlook of Millennials. Or at least Millennials as mythologized by marketers and news idiots. You know who you are.

Played superbly by Tyrel Jackson Williams, Charles’s quippy nuggets target just about any subject matter, from entry-level jobs in social media (“I plan on getting some experience here, then moving to New York to finally start my life.”) to the ramifications of fictional celebrity hookups (“Drake and Taylor Swift are dating! Albums y’all!”). But where he really nails the whole Millennial POV thing is when he comments on America’s second favorite past-time after type II diabetes: baseball.

Here are a few pearls.

On Baseball’s Lasting Cultural Relevance

“Baseball’s one of those old-timey things you don’t need anymore. Like cursive. Or email.”

On The Dramatic Value Of Double-Headers

“The only thing dumber than playing two boring-ass baseball games in one day is putting a two-hour delay between the boring-ass games.”

On Sartorial Tradition

“Is dressing badly just a thing for baseball, because that would explain his jacket.”

On Baseball, In A Nutshell

“Baseball is a f-cked up sport, and I want you to know it.”


Learn more about Charles in the behind-the-scenes video below.

And if you were born before the late ’80s and want to know what the kids think about Baseball, watch Brockmire Wednesdays at 10P on IFC.

Crown Jules

On Brockmire, Jules is the unexpected yin to Jim Brockmire’s yang. Which is saying a lot, because Brockmire’s yang is way out there. Played by Amanda Peet, Jules is hard-drinking, truth-spewing, baseball-loving…everything Brockmire is, and perhaps what he never expected to encounter in another human.

“We’re the same level of functional alcoholic.”


But Jules takes that commonality and transforms it into something special: a new beginning. A new beginning for failing minor league baseball team “The Frackers”, who suddenly about-face into a winning streak; and a new beginning for Brockmire, whose life gets a jumpstart when Jules lures him back to baseball. As for herself, her unexpected connection with Brockmire gives her own life a surprising and much needed goose.

“You’re a Goddamn Disaster and you’re starting To look good to me.”

This palpable dynamic adds depth and complexity to the narrative and pushes the series far beyond expected comedy. See for yourself in this behind-the-scenes video (and brace yourself for a unforgettable description of Brockmire’s genitals)…

Want more about Amanda Peet? She’s all over the place, and has even penned a recent self-reflective piece in the New York Times.

And of course you can watch the Jim-Jules relationship hysterically unfold in new episodes of Brockmire, every Wednesday at 10PM on IFC.
