Time to visit our concession stand!

[foto montage by your "faithful" blog host]
Ah, such a lovely late-summer evening. What's that sound? Never mind, the MrDeityFan Star-Lite Drive-In refreshment booth has many scrumptious snacks & tasty treats and is open all night!

I'm constantly impressed with the MrDeityFan crowd. This is your venue. "Blogging is easy, commenting is hard." If you visit this blog, you gotta visit the comment threads. (Including the previous one[s].)

Just be sure also to pick up some bug repellent before heading back to your car for the show. ...Looks like there'll be time.

The question I think "A Big Fan" is really posing is not when are we going to see "Planet 10" but when are we going to see Mr. Deity Webisode #11. Thanks to "A Big Fan" for making me aware of the overlapping fan-demographic of Mr.Deity and The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension... I think...

Any word yet about when the new episode will finally be released?

I've been checking religiously 3 times a day, don't know how much longer I can wait until I burst.

RealWingo (just a fan...) said...

Thanks "anon" for your question. [ahem...] Believe it or not, you are not the first.
But wait; "religiously"?! ...and; "three times a day"?!
Are we sure that our prayer rugs are pointing towards Temecula, California?
(That might be a good Google Maps API mashup! A plug-in for Mr Deity converts anywhere in the world to figure out the direction. HAHAHA! Any like-minded hackers out there?)
I can tell you that according to the Antipode calculator, fans in a boat 1000 miles SE of Madagascar can safely pray in any direction.

David said...

Wingo, when I saw the new blog post I got all excited that you might be announcing something like a new episode or a music video or something. Alas, neither is true. Oh well, back to waiting...

Nalane said...

Jesse C... I just realized I didn't recalibrate my GPS after the last battery change while Geocaching! I've been praying in the wrong direction for months now! Sorry guys... My bad!

Chamberlyn said...

If you're going to pray towards CA, step it up to the required 5 times a day. Slackers!

And nalane, always good to "meet" another geocacher! I've found myself caching more and more trying to fill that empty spot that new episodes of Mr. Deity used to fill. Le sigh...

Nalane said...

What? Pray 5 times a day?? Dang! How in Lucy's name can anyone get anything else done with all those interruptions?

Wingo... just an aside... Where are all the Praying Mantis this year? You didn't... um you know... get a little crazy with the bug spray? Do you have your own stock pile of bug WMD?

Chamberlyn.. So fun knowing another MR.D fan "gets" what I'm talking about when I mention Geocaching.

Thanks to the hot new i-Luvme application that provides "Total Information Awareness" right on my desktop, we are now able to profile the typical MrDeityFan blog commenter. Ready?
She or He will apparently often:
- have a sense of humor.
- discuss taboo subjects in polite company.
- quote cult films.
- be able to convert Geocaching coordinates in their head.
- have at least one non-standard sexual quirk.
(Is all this weirding you out as much as it does me?)

Nalene, I'm hoping most readers realize I was referring to *crickets* in my last post? (I wondered about adding a audio file.)
I don't know what part of the world you are in, but I pray your Mantids are just off on a pilgrimage and it isn't a harbinger of some end-times environmental disaster.
If so, maybe I can interest you in our exciting new Rapture-Redi(TM) product line?

Katie D. said...

*twiddles thumbs* I'm good at waiting.... but this is trying my patience. Even just a small leak about the topic of the next installment would be nice... hint hint there Jimbo.

Anonymous said...

I have to agree with Katie D, not quite too sure how much longer they hold out until people just get frustrated or disinterested, its a great series but I'm worried that too long of a wait will do more harm than good.

Also, you guys at the deity crew might wanna just release something short on Youtube right before you release the new episode notifying people about the move to crackle, seeing that you still have about 8,000 subscribers on Youtube I'm sure a few people still haven't gotten the memo.

jimbo said...

ok ok, hint taken- although the Big MR. D comes as well.
Brian's busy writing the new episodes (so far he has 6 of them done) and I'll try adn get him to come here and tease a little.
THEY ARE REALLY FUNNY BY THE WAY! and of course cause Brian's writing them they have things of which i don't know about. which is cool with me.
also, we are planning on releasing a statement of such on Youtube tyring to get the fans pointed in the right direction. and god or mr. deity knows i tell everyone about this site.

jimbo

if you've missed me, it's cause i was in mexico on vacation last week. i really like it on the beach there, maybe you will see my tan?

Murphy J Stillwater said...

Tan as....say....Job?

Nalane said...

Larry may be the new "golden brown that guy!" Lets hope we get to actually see him before the tan fades. Not likely if all we're hearing about is Brian writing.

Wingo, I thought you were referring to crickets AND cicadas in your last post. It's years between the time you hear cicadas "sing" as the Japanese call it. That's my take on the length of time between Mr D episodes. Out here in Colorado this year... OMG... noisy little buggers!

Love that Wingo has profiled us. Can I now walk through the airport without fear that I will have to relinquish my 4 oz tube of toothpaste? No longer have to step out of my rhinestone flip flops?

David said...

Wingo, just how much do you know about us? You should team up with Homeland Security...

David said...

So I was just watching some Mr. Deity, and I was struck by the wardrobe. In Episode 2: Mr. Deity and the Really Big Favor, Mr. D is wearing a flowery black shirt, and in Episode 7: Mr. Deity and the Tour de Hell, Larry appears to be wearing the same shirt. Did Larry raid Mr. D's closet, or do they just shop together?

Dave MacD

jimbo said...

david-

nice observation on the shirt. you called it. i stole it from mr d.
actually brian just thought it would be funny to see if anyone paid that close of attention.

you win the prize!

jimbo

David said...

It is a truly lovely shirt. Who wouldn't steal it, even from the Deity?

Nalane said...

David.. good call on the shirt though I must point out that a fan on Youtube commented on it a while back. Wonder what your prize will be? THE shirt or a free get out of Hell card?

Wingo, Can you run a poll? What's best prize from Mr. D and company?

1 The Flower shirt
2 The Hell Hath No Fury sign (personal fav! I really want it)
3 Get out of Hell card
4 Special as yet undesigned tee shirt
5 Walk on water shoes by unamed athletic shoe maker.

I'm sure all recommendations by their greatest fan group will be happily considered by. Mr. D and crew.

Katie D. said...

I enjoy reading these comments almost as much as watching the webisodes over and over and over again. Definitely a clever crowd :)

Murphy J Stillwater said...

The simple mind is easily entertained, Katie. I giggle all day.

Mom says I need to put my helmet back on. Bye.

David said...

I never really pegged you for a giggler, Murphy.

Nah! Merv's at peace... I sent him my free Get out of Jail pass when I heard he was failing. Now, how the heck am I gonna replace it?

Kid in the back seat: Are we there yet?

Mr. Deity: If you ask me that ONE MORE TIME, I'm gonna stop this car.....

Nalane said...

Uh Oh! here comes the can of wrath.

David said...

Wingo started it!

So...uhhh... Bob, heard you got a divorce....

It's been quiet around here for quite a few days, any new news about new episodes yet?

David said...

Zzzzzzzzz....

A Joke to get you by during these trying times.

A man was sitting on his front porch swing one evening. His wife saw him outside and she joined him. As she approached she saw a tear trickle down his cheek. She paused and said, "Honey, what's wrong." He replied, "Oh, nothing." She pressed him for an answer and he said, "I was just thinking about that night all those years ago . . . the two of us in the back seat of my car . . . when your dad caught us." She smiled, knowing the exact incident he was talking about. He then said, "Your dad put his shotgun against my chest and said to me 'Boy, you're either going to see the preacher or you're going to see the judge!'" She smiled again and said, "Yes, I remember. But, honey, why are you crying?" His tears started to flow as he sobbed, "I would have gotten out today!"

tom j lawson said...

Um, RealWingo, I don't want to be a bother, but you're out of Goobers...

Anonymous said...

so are there any numbers or anything yet that say if all this waiting for the series to gain more momentum on crackle before releasing a new episode has been worth it?

i know thats not the only reason a new one hasn't come out yet (another is that it just hasn't been filmed yet), but if i remember correctly from earlier posts (and i haven't looked to be sure), it was at least one of the motivations that jimbo (i think it was him) offered.

Nalane said...

Milk Duds!!! No friggin' Milk Duds!

What's up with this theatre? Concession stand sucks!

Wingo, you need to restock ASAP or I bail!

Anonymous said...

Gotta love the Hollywood mentality. "Hey, we got some great buzz going on this project. Let's stall it!"

C'mon, guys, us faithful can only check back every day for so long before we give up.

Anonymous said...

I'm giving up. It was great while it lasted, but even the Chad Vader guys post something between episodes. And Crackle is terrible, it doesn't work well with FireFox, and will never (I hate to say it) be able to compete with YouTube.

I'll see you guys if/when you make it to bigger and better things.

Anonymous said...

I must concur. I've told several friends about Mr. Deity, but so many months without a new post (or at the very least an update on the mrdeity.com site) is making this fan a former fan. Sorry, guys.

Katie D. said...

Oh ye of little faith.

David said...

I certainly empathize with the sentiment, but I think Jimbo, Brian, and the gang have earned a bit of trust and loyalty from us, no?

Murphy J Stillwater said...

You bet your ass I'm loyal. If Jimbo walked off a cliff, I'd be right there behind him. I'd stop, but I'd be there.

Chamberlyn said...

While I'll admit that I've slacked off to just checking once a day instead of ten, I will remain loyal to the almighty (and his cronies).

Remember what he said in Hebrews 13:5, "I will never leave you nor forsake you." Though I don't know if Jimbo abides by that same promise or not.

Anonymous said...

In response to Chamberlyn's quoting of Hebrews 13:5, remember what Larry said. "Nobody reads that part anymore."

Anonymous said...

Even the cryptic messages with vague promises of something coming soon have stopped. Nothing. Maybe Fredrick Neitche finally got the job done Lucy hired him for, I dunno.

Here's another joke to get you through these trying times:

A man was laying on his bed, dying. He awoke from his unconsciousness and saw his wife sitting at his bedside, crying softly. He said to his wife, "I need to tell you something before I die." She hushed him and told him to sleep. He said, "No, no, I know I'm dying and I need to tell you that I've been unfaithful." She said, "Its ok, go to sleep." He said, "No, you need to know that I slept with your sister." She responded, "Shh, shh, go to sleep, its ok." He added, "No, there's more. I slept with my secretary." She paused and said, "Don't worry, just go to sleep." He said, "And I also slept with half the women in the neighborhood." She paused again, a bit irritated, and said, "Its OK! I know all about your affairs." Rather shocked, he said, "You KNOW?!?" And she replied, "Of course I know. Why else would I have poisoned you!"

jimbo said...

hey guys,


we feel your frustration, and thanks for walking to the cliff with me at least.....

we are very anxious to get going here as well, we have show some stuff and i can only say, i really do believe it will be worth the wait.

rawebb said...

While we're waiting, maybe we can start a list of the various cookies/homage bits in the episodes.

We've already seen the shirt off Mr Deity's back. Here are a couple from Ep 4 (Messages).

Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret is the title of a book by Judy Bloome.

Also on books, the one that Mr Deity is reading is Why Darwin Matters: The Case Against Intelligent Design.

Chamberlyn said...

Anonymous, you have caused me to lose faith in Mr. Deity fans. If you don't even know which books of the Bible are where, how can you be expected to fully comprehend the awesomeness that is the Deity?

Hebrews is traditionally Paul's letter to the Hebrews, even though it's not a letter and Paul didn't write it. Paul = New Testament. Larry said people didn't read the first half, not the second. Geez people! Get with it! =)

zinfab said...

I remember when the Deity made the Israelites walk around for 40 years, and then made them do it again when they started worshiping idols.

You're upset b/c it's been a few months? sheesh.

All that said, my feet are getting tired walking this cliff with you. Any chance you could carry me, like in that poem?... I mean, I've been dieting and everything... Maybe Jesse. He looks big and healthy enough...

Murphy J Stillwater said...

The Deity makes the Israelites wander the desert for 40 years to find the "Promised Land" which, in a twist of humorous irony, is the only land in the region without oil.

Mr. Deity said...

Okay, I apologize for Mr. Deity being away for so long. But it's a whole new ballgame workin' for the man. 10 scripts written, produced, edited, acted in, shot, and directed in 10 weeks is something we've never done before.
But let me say, I think people will be really happy with the next ten episodes. Plus, we've finally got merchandise! Check it at mrdeity.com.
We'll be back real soon with the new episodes. Keep the faith (or lack thereof)!
Mr. Deity
