The Grim Fate of Jim Garcia [Video]

Posted by MP / April 6, 2006

As much as we at Midnight Poutine enjoy having your eyeballs glued to this screen [and as much as we enjoy pondering what gluey eyeballs feel like], from time to time we also enjoy hearing that you've abandoned us, at least for a few hours, to explore the environs of our fair city. For in the words of the great Daniel Boone, "nature here is a series of wonders, and a fund of delight." [Yes, I realize that Jacques Cartier was the one who discovered Montreal, but a) his only notable quote is a little too biblic-tacular for my liking, and b) Daniel Boone had a cool hat. Or did he...]

Of course, some of you will always rely on us to do the exploring for you. Which is fine. It's understandable, really. You have things to do. You're busy, connected, hot, saucy, delicious people. We, on l'autre main, are not. We're hideous, fleet-of-foot ogres. All of us. So hideous and so fleet-of-foot, in fact, that there's really nothing left for us to do but wander. And so, we do.

It's actually a pretty good deal: you pay us nothing [cheap bastards], and in exchange, we bring you back glorious tales of adventure & intrigue.

Like, say, this one, a tale of unimaginable bravery & perseverance detailing the heroic exploits of daring explorers John MacFarlane and Mark Raheja, as they endeavour to tame the unconquerable beast that is Jay Peak, Vermont.

"I got an idea. An idea so smart my head would explode if I even began to know what I was talking about."

Great ideas lead to great discoveries. Or sometimes they lead to movies like this. Kudos to you guys for following your ideas, and discovering whatever it is you found out there, in the Wilds of Jay Peak. I will never look at a Gondola in the same way.

J'adore les trucs épais qu'on prend la peine de bien monter. BRAVO ! Vraiment aimé ça.

yup. i think we definitely qualify as thick. [that's what epais means, right?]

now, if our tempermental star would just return from his self-imposed exile in vancouver, we might actually get around to shooting the sequel [which, while unlikely to involve snow or gondolas, will undoubtedly involve peeing]...
