Yeah I saw it. The first song is:

"I'm the Unibomber! This is me!
I pass judgement on society!
Computers are bad! Nature is good!
I have a TV made out of wood!
I blow you up cuz that's my way!
I have a bed made out of hay!
I like bombs. They're my voice!
(music slows)
but I'd give it all up for a kiss from Joyce..."

Joyce is an ancillary character who is a large lesbian mechanic who lives in town.

Ok, someone stole this idea...

I remember seeing a sketch on a comedy show (can't remember which one) where they brought in a bunch of actors to try out for this fake musical about the unibomber... The sketch itself was hilarious, watching all these people trying their hardest to get an acting gig for something so stupid...

Damn it... someone else has to remember this... help me here people... what show was this from?... I'm thinking maybe it was that BuzzKill show on MTV, but I'm not sure...

Sounds like that play should be a blast.
2002-10-29 12:46:25 PM  
>_< although I do appreciate jokes at the expense of stuff like this... not dumb jokes...

*Waits for the 9/11 Musical*

The Hilllllsss are alive... with the smell of Cordite.

Thank you, Thank You.

So what does this guy do? Blow up universities?
You don't mean the Unabomber, by chance, do you?
2002-10-29 12:47:32 PM  
I thought it was Unabomber

Wait no more. Some freak in Germany already gave it to us.

That is the stupidest title for a play I have ever heard. "Ted Kaczynski Killed People With Bombs"??? My first thought when I read that was 'well, no shiat.' Methinks this is another mediocre arts student that's trying to make an impact but is too naive to really know how. [opinion]Name it simply "Kaczynski", make it a play, not a musical, and for gods sake, if you're going to try to be a profiler, then write it that way. Do it from the viewpoint of the investigators speculating on who the Unabomber could be.[/opinion]

Or, don't use the lame premise in the first place.

It'll bomb
2002-10-29 12:52:06 PM  
I think this calls for a photoshop. Inapropriate TV Shows Based On Murderers. I can only imagine what people could come up with.

Dibs on the Jim Jones Kool-Aid Massacre!
2002-10-29 12:53:26 PM  
Alt title:

Marcus Crowder bores people with bombs
2002-10-29 12:53:54 PM  
Ooo - who's playing Kaczynski?? I hope they get Nick Nolte or Gary Busey.
2002-10-29 12:54:14 PM  
Is this a revelation to discover serial killers are frustrated, boring/bored, cowards who would rather kill people than form relationships? Their interest and power comes only through their violence, i.e."becoming the Red Dragon"

Sniper jokes in 5....4.....3.....2.....

Musicals suck anyway.

"Springtime for Hitler" was better.

crap, I didn't mean to double-post...
2002-10-29 01:01:10 PM  
It's ____UnAbomber____...
2002-10-29 01:02:36 PM  
Don't know how this is automatically "asinine". I hear the opera based on the Achille Lauro incident is excellent.

and San Fran in the same topic. What are the odds?
2002-10-29 01:02:56 PM  
There is no i in Unabomber.

Featuring the new hit tune, "The Luddites' Lament"
2002-10-29 01:05:48 PM my Army Math Bombing ballet will never get produced.

Oh... Dr. Zaius
2002-10-29 01:07:40 PM  
Young_Fart - There should be, though. He was the "University Bomber".
2002-10-29 01:09:11 PM  
And there is no "i" in team either.
2002-10-29 01:11:25 PM  
"2 stars"

To sum up the review: the play has no redeeming value. However, because the loser playwright has the right to make the crappy play and we'll give it 2 stars. WTF.
2002-10-29 01:17:21 PM  
BUZZKILL!! saw this on that show
2002-10-29 01:17:44 PM  
DSM 292.11 is this a decription of one's self, or your psychiatrists'? ICD-9 780.09 (unreponsive to stimulus)
2002-10-29 01:20:54 PM  
DSM292.11 is this your own diagnosis or your psychiatrist's? Mine is ICD-9 780.09 (unresponsive to stimulus)
2002-10-29 01:23:28 PM  
I don't know about this play, but I bet it isn't as good as the lifetime movie about serial killer Jeffery Dahmer and his childhood quest for a friend and his battle with child abuse which eventually led him into cannabalism.

I think it was called, "Stop hitting me Mommy"
2002-10-29 01:24:30 PM  
Art? This is art? Elvis painted on black velvet is art...
2002-10-29 01:24:59 PM  
I guess you could call it a self-diagnosis.

New On ABC, From The Makers of the Critically Bashed "Ted Kaczynski Killed People With Bombs" comes the hit show....

His nickname was originally the "Unibomber" (University Bomber) At some point, one of the media outlets mis-spelled it as unabomber, and that's what the other media started using.
2002-10-29 02:21:41 PM  

Actually no.. his nickname was "Unabomber" which stood for University/Airline Bomber... Since most if not all his targets were associated with either universities or airlines.
2002-10-29 02:37:48 PM  

I think I was 300.12. I can't remember.

Anyway, I'd just like to take this opportunity to be the six millionth pedant to say: "You Can't Spell, moron.
2002-10-29 02:39:51 PM  
Yes, you should proofread your own post before calling people morons.
2002-10-29 02:54:54 PM  
Yes it was on Buzzkill, which was so much funnier than Tom Green/Jackass/Andy Dick/Trigger Happy tv, maybe they were ahead of their time. I remember when the guys from Buzzkill crashed an mtv spring break party thing and blew up their big cake and knocked rappers into pools and stuff, funny that was the last I remember seeing of them. "I made it with strings and other cool things OHHHHH beautiful bomb!"
2002-10-29 02:55:47 PM  
At least they didn't make a musical about the Unibrower

Now that'd be scary....
2002-10-29 05:42:24 PM  
Brought to you by the same people who unleased the vagina monologues onto the world

San Francisco has many many great things about it, but it's theater has always been the tail end of the world's largest poo factory.
2002-10-29 10:46:38 PM  
C'mon people, this can't be true. I mean, what's next, a musical about Batman?
2002-10-31 12:07:55 AM  
Wow, this sounds like a great idea.
