John Hodgman in BBtv's SPAMasterpiece Theater, Vol IV: V1V4 M3X1CO.

Today on Boing Boing tv we reprise our ongoing SPAMasterpiece Theater series featuring author, PC, and minor television personality John Hodgman. His new book, MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE was released just a couple of weeks ago.

Hodgman himself describes this series as the dramatization of "true tale[s] of romance, adventure, infamy, and low-cost prescription drugs, all culled from the reams of actual, unsolicited emails, received here by us and people like you -- what we call SPAM."

Today's installment: V1V4 M3X1CO., in which we explore supply chain management solicitations with the help of luchadores, mariachis, beautiful black-n-white señoritas from the silver screen of our abuelitos, and GIANT NARCO-KITTEHS WITH UZIS.

A note from our musical director: The adaptation of Jean-Joseph Mouret's "Rondeau: Fanfare" (1735) which opens today's episode was remixed in flagrante 8-bit by Hamhocks Buttermilk Johnson.

  1. Can anyone explain what hell crowdfire is? Is it just me or does microsoft’s ad copy never make any sense at all?, music and technology fuse, in globally shared digital media creations.

    What the hell are you talking about lady. just how exactly is this fusion achieved? Can we truly share digital media creations (please define) globally? Like with Iran and China? Tajikistan?

    I like the part with the sombrero.

  2. i just want the theater to start immediately….i don’t need a minute of foreplay m’f’s!
