All of the clowns at the special congress of clowns came in the same car.

I have been silently praying that the folks from HBR start that series up again. In the meantime, you should be aware of their website:

There was a "Please Don't Feed the Clowns" sign posted, but the clowns ate it.

Pretty sure that's also the clown periodic table.

Jeff, I will fix your typo for a small fee.
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:01am Jeff G:

FEE = pie in face, I'm guessing.
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:02am Merv:

Yup, I went to the website the other day because I was curious about the project... Interesting that the folks are from the UK... According to the post here: that website isn't actually related to the other hillbilly researcher...

jeff g: those clowns on the right would be noble clowns, then.

@ljfw: was thinking we could come up with new groupings. The Hat group; the Sads; the Balds; the Bow Ties etc.
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:08am Merv:

Hard to believe! I guess there's no evidence that hillbilly researcher website is from the UK though... Just the originals... Seems confusing- I'll stick to listening instead of researching...

Take that straw outta your teeth when you do your researchin'. It's so undignified.

Wizard of Oz=fave film. My mother says indeed, her breath was taken away with the door to color scene. Biggest cinema moment in her childhood.
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:38am ?:

re: the Wizard of Oz, I think it is well-documented that people were gasping in the theaters when it switched to color. . .

Hullo. I'm cloudy and headachey this morning.
Clownliness is next to grogginess.
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:39am ndbob:

ever see any or the early, silent, Oz films?
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:39am Jeff G:

Speaking of Bismillah Khan, saw Rudresh Mahanthappa play last night. He is good at what he does. (Connection is that RM did a post for D:O once on Indian classical music, and hipped us to BK.)
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:41am ?:

@ndbob: didn't know there were such films. assume they are of different Oz-related stories? Any way to get them for personal home viewing (assuming they are good)?

MP3 links are gone, but here is Rudresh's post:

@Holland Oats
At least it's not a tinny radio. (Oh yes it is.)
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:45am ndbob:

Im pretty sure they are on DVD - and some are on YouTube
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:46am ndbob:

there are 1910 - and 1925- versions of the wizard of oz - the patchwork girl of oz from 1914 etc

Hello Doug & folks, back from the country. Peaceful. Sky full of stars.
All these clowns & I can't see no politicians.

  Fri. 9/21/12 9:49am holland oats:

really mansfield!!
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:50am ?:

thx, ndbob. sappy, but true: it warms my heart that even in this day and age (internets, tv and computer screens every 2 seconds) when I showed the Wizard of Oz to my then-6 year old son he was blown away by the transition to color and loved the movie

Oops, forgot to say warm welcomings to you kat330!
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:53am ndbob:

the early Oz films are totally different from the 1939 one - the scarecrow is the star of the 1925 version
  Fri. 9/21/12 9:54am Jeff G:

...and we have a Disnified OZ coming next year to look forward to/dread...

No! That's actually horrifying.

I think I've spotted the Clown Congressman of Ireland. Which one represents US though?

Yeah, Ireland really goes the high-profile route. I think the U.S. clown was in the bathroom and missed the group photo.

Yo Dougie and peoples. I have first dibs to bag on Irish politicians. Actually, 2nd dibs, cause I'm an export. Other David is our man on the ground in Eire.
