Today is Mel Brooks' 90th birthday. The writer, director, producer, and actor in some of the most classic and funniest films of the last 100 years such as:

Blazing Saddles



Young Frankenstein



History of the World, Part 1



Spaceballs



Robin Hood: Men in Tights



And several more.

So yeah, twitter scared the bejeesus out of me when I saw Mel was trending, so let's celebrate the man while he's alive.

    And he didn't openly put his name on the film because he knew his name would give the audience the wrong impression. "Oh cool, another comedy from Mel BrooOHMYGOD!"

    On the other hand, he looks great for a 2000 year old(/pound/dollar) man.

    They have a packaged set that is pretty cheap and all bluray. I think I got it at Fry's one time on a whim, iirc.

    For some reason a lot of pro-Brexit people keep posting Gene Wilder memes, so I'm thinking a lot of "hard working farmers...people of the land...the common clay... you know....morons"

    I think the Blazing Saddles fart scene was also the first of its kind in a movie, while also being plenty hilarious on its own.

    I learned to swear from Spaceballs and Blazing Saddles, so Mel Brooks will also have a special place in my heart.

    If you have a chance, watch the panel that Brooks and Carl Reiner did at the Paley Center a couple of years back, because it's delightful.

    Having written some comedic materials now and then, I think about this quote a lot. It really slices right to the heart of the matter.

    Apparently they went back and did an unabridged version of the audiobook when the film was made.

    I need to actually get around to listening to it, as the parts that were taken out of the abridged version were mainly things that were actually specified as not being able to be recorded in the book.
