The Aussie Environment

Who wants to go on a Steve Irwin style rampage through the Aussie Environment. You do of course.

Hope everyone enjoys this one as much as I enjoyed making it. Too much fun. I don't really know what else to say about this little creation, only that this is what happens when you have a spare day, no script, and a rubber c... well, you'll see.

Take: 60

"I'm alright! Bugger."

Genius. I enjoyed every moment of this. I particularly liked when he acknowledged being "just plain paper" in the back. What a brave thing to do.

Off to watch it again.

Brill. Great laugh. Fab start to an Aussie day - one with sunshine too, for a change! :-)

Monkey! I hope this goes some way to relieve the tension the little poopers are creating in your house.

He may be plain paper in the back but he's not afraid of acknowledging things like this, after wrestling a rubber crocodile things like that seem trivial.

I should also acknowledge that he was terrible inspired by your hot new set of wheels the other week which is why he pulled the 4 Wheel Drive out of the garage.

The kids and I had a good laugh! That was awesome! Rediculous and funny, and that wire making the alligator talk, brilliant! Well done.
I watched it 3 times!

Tich, dude, no really, do you know how many times I was beat'n as a kid for making that mistake, no really, just seeing it in black and white makes want to curl up in a ball at the bottom of my safe little cupboard and cry myself to sleep. No really, it's a Crocdile. See, I'm so upset I can't even spell it. Next thing you know, you'll be calling a Koala a bear. *Shudder*

Glad you and the kids enjoyed it :)

The 'wire' is a clear plastic SFX thread used in films to move things without it being seen. Unfortunately you can't use it on a extreme close-up like that and have it invisible, but from a couple of feet away it doesn't show up on camera.

ROTFLMAO!!!!!!!!!

That was AWESOME rich!

Watched it twice! Will do again, too. Told my husband he had to check it out as well.

My fave part, the singing croc in the end!!! LOL!!!

That was so funny!

Did you plan for the truck to be so uncooperative?

Anonymous Rich mused...

He he, Thanks Jin. It really was a fun spending the day playing in that way.

I was walking to work with my girl today and we were singing. New York, New York, When I suddenly realised the line should have been "I want to eat a part of it..." I would be terribly disappointed if the singing part was anything more than me just checking out if the croc worked. But yes, I had to include it.

Diaaaaana! Glad you liked it.

Truthfully, not at first... but then I realised it was comedy gold! Gold, I tell you! Well, when the truck got stuck on the step I was trying to stop myself from laughing as I pushed it inside, so for the rest of the scenes I did my best to screw it up. I was just keeping myself entertained.

Wow Rich! Very well done! Your Stevo voice is always spot on.

My fav part: All those "bugger" parts.

Anonymous Rich mused...

B-Hip! Thanks man.

The 'bugger' parts were one of my favs as well, mind you, I'm so cheap I just recorded it once and pasted it over various parts.

The Stevo voice is a lot harder than I care to admit. It's nowhere near my normal voice, probably much like your Hippo voice. There were a huge amount of times I'd be halfway through a line and my voice would crack and I'd decend into a coughing fit. Totally worth it thoughm, honey helps.

PS. I love the piece you did with Ticharu.

YES, eveyone should check out the piece that Ticharu did with B-Hips voice.

Are you talkin' about those cute fuzzy little Kola Bears that live in the trees and eat Kola leaves? Of course those are bears! Vegen bears who live in trees.
Alligoaters and crocdills are the same walking fish with teeth, nasty lizards that eat joggers, more power to 'em!
Next I suppose you'll be tellin' me that a kangeroo isn't a giant rat, and that ortiches don't walk around with their heads in the sand, and that a refrigerator is where you keep the beer!

JLee, You wouldn't be the first girl to say that with an endearing note in the voice. I take it as quite the compliment, there's not too many guys who can be a ginormous dickhead and get away with it :)

Giant hand? What giant hand? I saw nothing, nothing I tell you!

Glad you liked it, go get yourself a beeah.

Eeeeeeeep! T-t-t-t-tich! Noooooooo!

OK, your right except that Crocs don't eat Joggers. German tourists, it's always German tourists. Apparently the 'No swimming. Crocodiles!' signs translate in German to 'put your tent 2 metres from the water, eat fried meats, and go swimming before the mandatory half an hour is up.'

It's unfortunate but at least it keeps us Bundaberg Rum and Kola's entertained.

Monkey! I hope this goes some way to relieve the tension the little poopers are creating in your house.

Two seven year old boys and one seven year old girl destroying the house is not a synonym for "peaceful" or "serene". So your Little Steve Irwin Adventure went a long way in relieving some of my pre-migraine symptoms.

Monkey is jealous of Steve's wheels and is demanding I purchase him a similar vehicle. He likes the fact that it is powered by something other than human hands. Damn you. He's demanding enough as it is. I'm going to get bitten over this, I can tell.

Signed,

L>t, Fuck no! It's no worse ere than it is in the States. It's a good solid word used for a lot of things. I like a word that undergoes constant evolution. Crikey, I'm not sure I understood what I just said. It's jus' not a word that should be used when there's a good chance there's a few little tykes 'anging around.

I know that Rich fella dont like delketing stuff, unless he thinks it's funny. But 'e dont always knows wots funny, he ran me over with a bleed'n croc! That jus' aint funny!

Monkeys Human, Blimey! I didn't mean to cause no trouble between you and the primate. I'd happily let Monkey drive me Ute if I ever manage to get it back off that Croc. It's the fourth car he's stolen this month. I love Crocs, but some of em jus go plain bonkers when they git aroun humans.

Now, as for the monkey and the little poopers, if they're caus'n a problem in the local environment, wot ya gotta do is git in behin em with five or six of ya mates an then pounce. Make sure ya go for the head and git a rope aroun their mouths... wait, that's fer Crocs. Um, I'vefound dangling them in front of a Croc tends to work wonders. Good ratings too!

Ok, where the hell did my comment go? Rich, I swear I was kissing your Aussie ass.
I was also telling you we call the thing a "fridge" in the Detroit area as well.
And we call carbonated beverages "pop".

I thought your loo was absolutely beauteous, and loved the part where the wee little truck got stuck at the top of the ramp.

And, like Arth, I admired the line acknowledging your character's misorientation.

That's it. Goonidght!

But B-Hip, what makes you think that Rich bloke ISN'T mad at you! Besides the fact he doesn't have any reason to be, and he thinks your a good bloke, and he likes your work, and... well, I guess he aint.

The actual Aussie saying is, when ya really need a beer to blow the dust off, 'I'm dryer than a dead dingoes donger'. I just thought I'd change it a bit for the show.

PS. I'm not the real Steve just a paper copy, the real Stevo's shoes are too big to fill.
