A few weeks ago our super pals Camile and Trev came to visit us for the first time in Melbourne. I was so excited to see them. Well I have to admit they didn't just come to see just us, but to see the awesome comedy styling of Tim and Eric. If you haven't seen the radical comedy of Tim and Eric then watch the "Awesome Show"(That's it's name The Tim and Eric Awesome Show)right now. The first time I saw Liam watching it I said "What the hell is this crap?". The show makes no sense and is really gross in bits and most importantly has silly songs. I refused to watch it. Then one day at work while I was sterilizing surgical instruments one of their beloved tunes called "Cops and Robbers" entered my head and refused to leave. It has been love ever since.
I had been working on my t-shirt design for over a month. It needed to be easy to draw and obscure. There are so many awesome quotes from the Tim and Eric Awesome show that it was hard to narrow it down. Steve Mahanahan has a little place in my heart forever, so his clown store won the mighty battle to be commemorated in shirt form.
Unfortunately the first show sold out when Liam and I got our tickets so Camile and Trev went to the second show the next night. We hung out all day in the city in the rain having fun and eating spaghetti then Liam and I headed off to see Tim and Eric. What an exciting show. It opened with them singing a song in cat language while being naked. Awesome. They performed all my favorite characters and even threw a hotdog that hit Liam in the face. Very proud.
After what seemed like an eternity we finally met our beloved Tim and Eric. What awkward and lovely men. They signed my poster that Liam caught during the show (they threw a lot into the crowd.. rose petals, hot dogs, fake vomit ect). I preceded to tell them how much I hated them at the beginning, but how like a princess I fell under their evil spell. Tim high fived me and said "Great job" then we took this pretty picture. Liam wanted to do the Tim Heidecker wink, turns out they both did. After the photo he whispered into Liam's ear "I did the wink". Weird guys, but a great night.
Thanks Camile and Trev for sharing this Awesome event with us. Can't wait for you to visit again.
