Attention Must Be Paid

Airheads is just one of those movies that reruns on Comedy Central like five times a month, and it's definately not that great, but hey, maybe there's nothing else on and you want to watch Kramer crawl around in a ventilation system, so whatever. Then maybe a bunch of years go by and you start reading a lot of comic books. And then maybe you don't have TV anymore in your apartment, so you walk to Target to see what cheap movies they have for sale, and Airheads and PCU doesn't seem like such a bad idea for ten bucks. So you're watching it and you're all like "Oh, what's that on Brendan Fraser's shirt?"


And at first you're like, what the fuck, but then you realize that to have this character who changed his name from Chester to Chazz but kept on representing the Beanworld because it's seriously that great and appeals to so many people in so many different ways is totally genius.

True story.

And if you want, you can buy a white, XL, apparently kinda sweaty version of that shirt on Ebay.

This is how I felt about the Krazy and Ignatz shirt in Pulp fiction.

Dude, are you into Beanworld? It's sort of the greatest thing ever.

I'd read a couple early early issues and then later when I was 16I met Larry Marder and he was nice.
But that's as far as it's gone.

I haven't thought about it much since but maybe I should. I've never seen airheads either.

So much catching up to do.

reading beanworld and listening to the soundtrack to land before time was probably one of the best comic reading experiences of my life. unfortunately, i cant say watching airheads was ever so moving.

Good thing I keep soundtracks to favorite childhood movies on record and within arms reach.
