Still with the Alf Talk

The Greatest Television Show of ALL TIME and the biggest piece of my childhood, next to He-man, has come home to me. FINALLY…

So whats it been like another month? I dunno who cares. I’m fucking writing so be happy. Fun things to talk about today lets get down to it:

First off Alf Season One has been released on DVD for the first time ever. You must be saying, “Sean big deal. Its another DVD for you to add to your whoreish DVD collection”. To that I say take a seat my friend for about you’re going to be allowed into the past of SeanPiotrowski. You see when I was 5 years old Alf aired for the first time. I remember my father making a point of me watching it and I remember the first episode so vividly and I have for my entire life. Alf to me was my first exposure to comedy as a young lad. I am sure by the ripe old age of 5 that I had allready developed a sense of comedic timing but I am almost positive that it was Alf who honed it into the craft that I have mastered today. Alf was everything to me. I loved the show more than anything on television at the time. My love for Alf had grown so large that my father over the course of two months made me a 4 hour Alf tape with all of the commercials edited out. This my friends was my the core of my daily routine as a child. I watched all 4 hours of this tape everyday for years. I think its safe to say I watched this thing till I was like 10 on a daily basis. Now I can safely tell you that all of these episodes on this tape were etched into my brain forever, so etched that I’d even go so far as to say that they have been hardwired into my brain and will be passed on via DNA to my children. As my love for Alf continued on past my 6th birthday my love for Alf grew, as mentioned before. I had an Alf birthday party one year complete with Alf cake, if I remember correctly. Then came the pinnacle of my Alf-ness my Aunt Debbie and Uncle Mike back in 1986 won me my very own TALKING ALF DOLL on the boardwalk. This Doll was my man. I used to push his stomach over and over and over having him repeat his 10 phrases until I was blue in the face and it never got old. It eventually got so bad that the battery was so dead that Alf spoke in a slow demonic voice for about two years because I refused to replace the batteries. (You see you needed a screw driver to open up the talk box to fix the battery. Something I refused to do for some reason) Eventually Alf’s talk box died and I was forced to throw away the talk box because the battery acid had rusted out all of the innerworkings of the box so bad that it was unusable at this point. Eventually my mom made me give up my Alf doll at around 12 or 13 years old. I think I was out of the Alf thing by this point and gave him up without a fight. Now here it is 2004. I haven’t really though much about the old Alfster until I heard he was coming out on DVD. I actually debated for a while on if I should purchase the DVD set but once I saw it was only $30 at Best Buy I couldn’t pass it up. Boy am I glad I did so because Alf is fucking genius! I thought at the most I would find this show few of fond fond memories and would only fulfill some nostalgia in me. Yea I was wrong. Alf is really fucking funny. I went on 7 episode Alf binges as I waded through all 26 episodes over the 4 DVDs. I found myself laughing uncontrolably and was extremely satisfied in my decision to reunite myself with the wondeful world of Alf. I also purchased this (CLICK!). Its the same exact Alf Doll I had when I was a kid. I will be reunited with the old guy and he will share a place on my bed next to my good friends Hamilton the bear, Yellow Duck #1, and talking Gollum. I am anxiously awaiting his arrival and hope he doesn’t crash into the roof of my Apartment…

So I was accepted to Rider University’s Masters of Business Administration program and guess what?! I had 6 classes waived! THATS 18 CREDITS! It was pretty amazing so I only have to go for 5 semesters taking two classes each. Shouldn’t be that bad, who am I kidding though I have to take CALCULUS! HAHAHA…

I’ve also gone full time at the University. From now on I’ll be there 40 hours a week and will be making no longer the 80% of my salary that I was making but NOW I’ll be making 100%!! HAHA…

Whatever happened to Willa Ford? Willa even though some people call you the poor man’s Britney Spears I still “Wanna Be Bad Wit Ya Baby”. Take note folks thats the lamest SP.NET has ever been…

You know what was just on? The E! True Hollywood Story: The Last Days of Elvis. If I’ve said it once I’ll say it a 1000 times. This is THE MOST ENTERTAINING TWO HOURS OF TELEVISION EVER MADE! 1985 will back me up on that. If you haven’t seen it, do yourself a favor and watch it…

I’m gonna go…

Till next time…”Cue the Imperial March”
