So, last night on Parks and Recreation on NBC, Ron Swanson and Tammi got all drunk on lust and ended up getting married, including a 4 second shot of them opening a wedding registry and wildly scanning a bunch of items.
Then, in a promo that aired before the last, minute-long scene that acts as a bumper for NBC’s Thursday Night comedies, there was a promo telling viewers to go to NBC.com to check out ANDY and APRIL’s Wedding Registry.
The footage they showed was of ANDY and APRIL looking all love-y, including a shot of them embracing near the shoe shine stand, which is something we have yet to see.
A tweet from HITFIX writer Alan Sepinwell read:
Which seems odd, because the footage was most definitely of APRIL and ANDY.
Which means, at best, that the PROMO department never bothers to watch the show and managed to go through the editing and approval of a 15 second spot without anyone noticing, suggesting at least a dozen people in charge of promoting Parks & Rec can’t tell their characters apart. (As someone who works on a Cable TV show, I’m suggesting a “dozen” because that’s roughly how many people see our lowliest of promos)
At worst, we just had a MAJOR story line spoiled for us.
No - scratch that - the WORST possibility is that this was both a mistake AND a spoiler.
Is there any way of knowing which one it was?
Well, here is RON and TAMMY’S registry on the NBC site. So maybe we weren’t spoiled.
Or maybe we were spoiled AND NBC’s Promo department doesn’t have a working knowledge of one of their best shows.
Got a lot of work done yesterday, not that it is going to yield any immediately-visible results. But in a few months or a year when I have something cool to show you and I try to play it off as something I just did in my spare time over the weekend? That probably was worked on yesterday.
Including some 3DBiPolarBear, specifically this little ditty, which will change before/if it makes any release (mostly the middle part).
But it was such a nice day yesterday, I feel this track does a good job of transferring that feeling.
This is a press release, but the title itself is interesting. Because what if it did? What happens, legally, then?
Anyway, I’ll check out this doc at some point. Though it’s always weird with Marijuana documentaries how I don’t watch them with groups of people.
“WHAT IF CANNABIS CURED CANCER” wins 2010 Stony Award from High Times Magazine (featured in January 2011 issue).FROM THE HUFFINGTON POST “I recommend an excellent documentary film, ”What if Cannabis Cured Cancer,” by Len Richmond, which summarizes the remarkable research findings of recent years about the cancer-protective effects of novel compounds in marijuana. Most medical doctors are not aware of this information and its implications for cancer prevention and treatment. The film presents compelling evidence that our current policy on cannabis is counterproductive.”- ANDREW WEIL, M.D. “A Hugely Important Film”– JULIE HOLLAND, M.D. NYU SCHOOL OF MEDICINE “A Must See Film”– MARIJUANA POLICY PROJECT, WASHINGTON, D.C. Using original and archival footage, the 60 minute documentary presents highly convincing evidence that this forbidden herb has healing properties beyond any other plant on the planet— interacting as it does with the body’s own “endocannabinoid system” to keep us fit and disease-free. “What if Cannabis Cured Cancer” explains how we are all born with a form of marijuana already in our bodies, and when pot is consumed, the “endocannabinoids” inside us—along with any cannabinoids we ingest—fit together like a key in a lock, thereby promoting the death of cancer cells without harming the body’s healthy cells. A powerful and eye-opening film about the future of cannabis—and perhaps even the future of medicine. Narrated by Emmy-winning actor, PETER COYOTE. Featuring interviews with DR, ROBERT MELAMEDE, DR. SEAN MCALLISTER, DR. JEFFREY HERGENRATHER, DR. DAVID BEARMAN, DR. MANUEL GUZMAN, DR. RAPHAEL MECHOULAM, and DR. DONALD ABRAMS “One of the most polished, informative films on cannabis released in years.” –CULTURE MAGAZINE Winner of the “Best Documentary” at the Williamsburg Film Festival. Winner of the “Reel Peace Award” at the Berkeley Film Festival. DVD’s have been provided to every member of the Los Angeles City Council, the Kansas State Legislature, the Marin County Board of Supervisors, and 100 selected members of Congress in Washington D.C.

Cleaning out the living space, I found a note that’s in my handwriting, but I have no memory of thinking and or noting: “economy mostly white men nd reacted like white men do when they’re in the middle of a shady back room deal when a black man barges in and yellls “CHHHHHHHHHHHHHANGE!” at them.”
I mean, it’s wrong, but it’s a funny visual.
