Happy Birthday, Arthur "Two Sheds" Jackson


Today is the birthday of Python Alum Terry Jones. My mother has always had deep suspicions about him, given his propensity for taking his clothes off in sketches more often than any of the other Pythons. (I'd also add that of all the troupe, he's probably the one most people would least like to see nekked.)

Although he is the typical loony left ass when it comes to politics, I've always liked his work. One of my favorite little-known movies is his 1989 Eric the Viking about a Norseman (Tim Robbins) who suffers a crisis of conscience during a pillaging raid and has to go to Valhalla to ask the Gods What It All Means. (John Cleese is also in the movie.)

And speaking of Pythonesque things, check out this.

I thought I was the only one who loved Erik the Viking (or saw it in the theater, for that matter)! I remember laughing out loud in the nearly empty theater with my friend. We were the only ones who walked out happy. Heh.
