Coming Soon To Runaway Box

You know what's exciting? New Series. Don't you think so? We don't have any or anything, I was just saying. Wondering what you thought. I think it'd be pretty cool if we had one, though, but don't let my answer influence you. If new series aren't your thang then, fair enough, what can I say. But really, if we had one, you know you'd love it. How could you not? I mean, how cool would that be?

We really don't have one.

Seriously, we don't have one.

Ah, woah, he bolded and italicized the word "one". Now what are you thinking? You're thinking we have two new series. Yeah, you're not dumb. You can read between the lines.

THREE. Three new series. I did it, I dropped the bomb. Three new series debut next month. Are they good? I don't know. They might suck, they might be great. That's for YOU to decide! Read on if you're intrigued!

Good, you're still reading. Anyway, here's the important part to remember. We need YOU GUYS to COMMENT as much as possible. Let us know what you think! What you like, what you hate! And tell us why! It's crucial to what we're doing. So get pumped! We wanna hear all your thoughts.

I love you.

What's Your Top Six Things to Be Thankful For?

It's that time of year where we're all supposed to take a time out and really think about what we're thankful for in our lives. If Runaway Box isn't in your top six, you need to re-evaluate your priorities. Seriously. Here's my top six:
  1. Jessica Alba... Just that she exists.
  2. Candy I am still eating from Halloween
  3. The Mighty Ducks Trilogy
  4. G-chat
  5. "Lost" on DVD
  6. Runaway Box
Speaking of re-evaluating priorities, I guess "my friends, my family, my health, their health" is somewhere in there... Let's say, between two and three.

Oh, and here's what I'm NOT thankful for this Thanksgiving:
I will not link that. I'm not in the business of ruining people's lives.

On a lighter note, let's all thank Senator Mike Gravel for making a stop in the "Elevator". He was great. He nailed it. We didn't have to do a lot of takes. And frankly, we'd all be foolish not to vote for him. He's got the Energy Sword. He can cut down all the terrorists in one fell swoop. Can Hillary do that? I don't think she can, but then again, I haven't been following the debates, so...

Alright, go enjoy some turkey. And if you feel like it, post your Top Six Things you're Thankful for this Thanksgiving, and maybe something you're not thankful for. Yeah, let's try that.

Runaway Box Live Chat?

That's right. You read correctly. A Runaway Box live chat. However, that question mark at the end there... That's not a typo. We'd love to do it, but we're just wondering what the specifics will be: how long we'd be on, who you guys would want to talk to, and what we would talk about... Eventually we realized we're just too lazy to figure out all that crap ourselves, so we decided to let you do it. Afterwards, we also have a fence you can whitewash for us... it's really fun!

But really, take a look at this here video. Woody explains it all. And if you have answers to the above mentioned questions, leave them either under this post here, or on the comment section of that video! We'd love to hear from you.

We've never done something live before so this is kind of a big deal for us. We need you guys to help us along. It's like we're little birds learning how to fly..... but live, in front of a studio audience.

Help us spread our wings. Help us soar.

Candy Hangover

Hey, Gang. I imagine you are all too busy to do anything save gorge yourselves on baby-hippopotamus-sized sacks of candy from the recent holiday. I know at times you may get weary, maybe even a little sick, but you must press on. You can't let the candy defeat you. It's a matter of pride. I still have candy left over from a Halloween outing in '92 and I've never been able to live it down. Good news for you, though: I've got a few videos that were MADE to eat candy by.

If you haven't realized, Runaway Box was feeling quite festive this Halloween and made about 4 billion Halloween videos. Here are the five that came out good:

The Marty Show featuring Elvira
Thad's Halloween
Man in the Box - Halloween Boss
Man in the Box - Costumes
Elevator - Three Part Halloween Mini-series!
Part 2*
Part 3

*OKay, so to those of you who have paid attention... Yes, my character, creatively named "Paul", did get eaten by zombies in Part 2 of the Elevator Halloween Mini-series and re-appear in a later episode, entitled "Would you rather?", apparently non-zombified. If you watch closely though, you'll notice that I do make an appearance AS A ZOMBIE in Part 3 of the Elevator Halloween Mini-series, ultimately being sent back to the 13th Floor with the other zombies inhabiting the Elevator. Clearly, from there, my character Paul became King of the Zombies, being closest to life and therefore possessing the most powerful brain. The zombies slaved beneath Paul's iron fist for months (remember, time goes by differently on the 13th floor). Finally, Paul, growing bored of pointless dull conversation, simply walked to the elevator, pressed the down button, got on, and went straight to a dermatologist. Dr. Rubinstein cleared up all the bloody abrasions, sores, and decaying skin, as well as Paul's pale undead complexion. So basically in subsequent episodes Paul is still undead, he's just had a lot of work done. THANK YOU, DR. RUBINSTEIN!!! You guys couldn't figure that out? Shit, learn to read between the lines.

Anyway, enjoy! And for the record, my advice is to get through the candy corn sooner rather than later. You hit that in the final stretch and you're blowing chunks.
