Two things that I’ve lent our support to since day one of this site have been the show It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and master mc, Kool Keith. Now it looks like the two have teamed up to push help promote the novelty DICK TOWEL, which originally stemmed from an episode of the FX comedy program. The video first aired on Dicktowel.com last night and now we’re doing our own little premier for you on the site, right here. Read the rest of this entry →
CONTEST HAS ENDED!
If you’re a die hard fan of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, then you probably already know about the Dick Towel by now. If you read our November 6th post about the novelty drying devices, then you also know that the Sunny crew actually manufactured the product and constructed an official site to sell and distribute them. In that post we mentioned that the towel would have made a wonderful Christmas or Hannukah present, but followed it up by asking, “As far as Kwanza?…..TERRIBLE! Where is all of the dark meat?!”
Well, it looks like the folks at Dick Towel are all ears when it comes to concerns as dire as those regarding racial sensitivity in the mock phallus industry. Beyond just adding hats and T-Shirts to their line of Dick Towel related merchandise, we’d like to present you with their latest addition……
…………. “THE BLACK DICK TOWEL”!
Finally! This should please a lot of people, except for this guy of course [poor bastard].
The really good news is, in celebration of their latest wang cloth, the people at Dicktowel.com have offered to provide us with a couple of FREE Dick Towels to give away. This means that we will be picking 2 winners (one for each color).
HOW To Enter:
Back in our Oct. 2007 interview with with Charlie Day, I asked the It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia star/executive producer about marketing. More specifically, I inquired about if there had been any show-related merchandising ideas that had been thrown around “Anything along the lines of ‘It’s Always Sunny’ in-soles or bondage gear?“ Now, it looks like the cleverly absurd merchandising possibilities for the show creators are finally beginning to hit their stride.
Last night’s episode of the FX program revolved around the concept of the gang trying to capitalize off of a merchandising convention that was coming to town. Various product concepts were presented by the crew, including a shotgun that blasts liquor, but in the long run, the only successful idea that garnered any interest from investros was Charlie‘s “Kitten Mittens“. In the real world, however, another one of these ideas has actually been put into production and can be purchased by you through a website specially created for that purpose. That’s right, DICKTOWEL.com actually exists.

Television today is so exhausted. It seems that every time I turn on the old boob tube, there’s either a new reality show or crime scene investigator series going down. Not to mention the remakes. Beverly Hills 90210, Knight Rider, Battlestar Galactica, Flash Gordon… Come on people! David Haselhoff is the only man allowed to drive KITT and Flash Gordon was corny as fuck to begin with. Have we run out of ideas? Have we been conditioned to just except this shit as entertainment?
I remember the good old days when I would get home from school, flip on the TV and rock the After School Specials. There was nothing like sitting on the couch with my bowl of Cheerios watching Helen Hunt jumping out a second story window high on pcp just to show us kids that drugs are bad or, the A-TEAM. Take a bunch of trained military lunatics, stick them in a pimped out molester van, add some action, a little adventure, and then just throw MR T in that bitch and we’ve got a show folks. Even the sitcoms back then were good. Taxi, Cheers, and the Cosby Show were simple concepts, but the content was funny. I’m sure you’re reading this and thinking, “Fuck this guy, CSI Miami is the shit!” and I’m sure it is, but it’s played out. In fact, it’s all played out. That’s why you have to be more creative if you want to make a TV show that will get my attention. Not even necessarily with the concept but, defintiely with the content. That’s also why I was so excited when I read the pilot script for a new project by the writers/creators of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia (FX), one of my favorite shows currently on television today.

You know that show that you love so much that you can’t believe that it actually made it on to the airwaves? The one that isn’t even on a paychannel, Comedy Central, or Adult Swim. It’s crass, but extremely well-written and it doesn’t pander to the mainstream television audience by diluting itself. When you watch it, you can sense that it is the result of an original idea followed through to the end with little or no corporate intervention and restrictions.
Oh, you do?! Now how about one that hasn’t been cancelled? Read the rest of this entry →
