CALLIPIDES (C 400 B.C.), THE ANCIENT GREEK COMEDY

Annoy your friends with your pretentiousness: refer to shows like I Love Lucy and Make Room for Daddy as "Parathespian Comedies."

Annoy your friends with your pretentiousness: refer to shows like I Love Lucy and Make Room for Daddy as “Parathespian Comedies.”

Balladeer’s Blog presents another examination of an ancient Greek comedy. Callippides was written by the comedian Strattis and falls into that comic poet’s specialized area: Parathespian Comedies.

Another fun element of our shared humanity with the ancient Athenians who flocked to attend these plays is the fact that even 2,400 years ago audiences were fascinated and entertained by the trappings of “showbiz”. “Parathespian Comedies” were just one of the many sub-genres of ancient Greek comedy but Strattis is the writer most associated with them … by me and the .000001 percent of the population who are into such things.

BALLADEER’S BLOG

Yes, a few thousand years before I Love Lucy, The Dick Van Dyke Show, Seinfeld and other such sitcoms the spectators at the Theatre of Dionysus were laughing at comedies depicting what it was like to be one of the performing, writing and singing stars of the Athenian stage. The Parathespian Comedies sometimes featured fictional stars as the characters but would also depict real-life figures of the stage in stories that were either wholly fictional or based on backstage gossip of the time.  

Callippides was based on the real-life actor and megastar of ancient Greek tragedies. In this particular case Strattis presented a very unflattering comedic poke at Callippides, making jokes that depicted him as a William Shatner-esque ham instead of the accomplished thespian he was often hailed as.   Continue reading

AMERICA: PART OF THE “ALIEN” FRANCHISE

Mascot new lookIt’s been awhile since I’ve done one of these blog posts here at Balladeer’s Blog.

“We’re a world of 7 billion people, 10 billion blogs and 20 billion political poses” is always the opening line. So let’s have some fun framing American politics as part of the Alien franchise.

Ellen RipleyRIPLEY and the other humans in the Alien films are American VOTERS. As we struggle to survive in this dangerous setting we need to stand together against the common threats. And that applies whether a voter considers themselves Independent or Democrat or Republican. Political labels have become meaningless for US as the Neo-Feudalists view all of us as peasants and cannon fodder, anyway.  

Alien XenomorphTHE XENOMORPHS are the DEMOCRAT office holders and their fellow members of the Hive Mind: the corporate media, “teachers” (LMAO), entertainers, SJWs and anyone else who plays along with the Democrat approach of taking offense at everything and filing complaints until only other Democrats work in your field. And Democrat power-holders and “activists” (LMAO) have no traces of individuality, just like the Xenomorphs. No personality, no independent thought and certainly no personal strength. Their numbers and unquestioning obedience are their fascistic advantage.

Carter BurkeWEYLAND-YUTANI CORPORATION are the Republican office holders and bloated rich pigs who care only about profit, potential profit and possible “sacrificed profits” if they don’t exploit every single situation for every dime that can be extracted from it. BURKE in particular represents Republican trash like the Bush Family, Paul Ryan, Mitt Romney, the stuffy white guys at National Review, etc. The Xenomorphs could be stopped if the Republican money-grubbers would forget the bottom line for once and stand with human beings. This will never happen. They will sell us out every time if it adds just one dollar to their bank balance.   Continue reading

JOE BIDEN: STILL LYING AND STEALING AFTER ALL THESE YEARS

Joe Biden is creepyLaughing at Joe Biden is ALWAYS the best medicine! Here’s a little levity to end the weekend. Now, I know compared to Joe Biden’s sleazy trail of modern-day lies and corruption plus running a crime family guilty of influence peddling, his plagiarism scandals and ridiculous lies about his academic qualifications may seem trivial. But they’re STILL funny! See below.

And please note how much more professional and honest the news people were back then, not giving Biden a pass just because he’s a Democrat. People back then at least tried to be actual journalists.

GEEK CHORUS: HILARIOUS SONG PARODIES

Geek ChorusRegular readers of Balladeer’s Blog are familiar with my odd sense of humor and my in-depth looks at off-beat and/ or obscure items. GEEK CHORUS (channel logo at right) nicely covers all of that and more.

The Geek Chorus YT channel specializes in hilarious song parodies taking down the primly disapproving, humorless SJWs of modern-day Snitch/ Informant Culture. In addition they do clever songs regarding in-jokes about the Heroic Defenders of Freedom (HDFs) who courageously oppose the SJWs and their book-burning mentality.

masc graveyard newAn example of the former would be Peg Me Too, sung to the tune of Peggy Sue, about the ridiculous Preston Poulter situation. (That song features adult humor) An example of the latter would be Anna’s Crazy, sung to the tune of She’s A Lady, ribbing Anna That Star Wars Girl about her lovable eccentricities.

The subjects of the songs may seem too “Inside Baseball” for overseas viewers who aren’t immersed in the nuances of our Culture Wars. Below is Geek Chorus’ rocking tribute to the irreverent and brilliant Ethan Van Sciver, sung to the tune of Viva Las Vegas. If you like it, the other 11 song parodies to date are found HERE

FOURTEEN MOVIES AND SHOWS TOO DARING FOR HOLLYWOOD

masc chair and bottleBalladeer’s Blog takes a look at several controversial pieces of entertainment too edgy for the mainstream.

… BUT NAMES WILL NEVER HURT ME (2016) – Is it real? If it is, is it MEANT to be as funny as it is? Left-wingers and right-wingers try to shame into silence the contestants on a game show. This is done by calling them “racists” if they are pro-freedom of expression and “baby-killers” if they are pro-choice on abortion.  Real or fake, this game show is sure to offend almost everybody.
