Ain't It Cool News (

Behind the scenes of A SURREAL WORLD 2: Gary Coleman, Erik Estrada, Ron Jeremy, Vanilla Ice, Tammy Faye, etc... WEIRD!

Hey folks, Harry here... I know nothing about this show... but if you just walked into Mel's Drive-in on Sunset like this one day.... it'd fuck with you. I was there about 4 weeks ago, and it was crazy enough, seeing Frank The Bunny and the Pancake Kickboxer

Hey Harry.  Long time reader first time contributor.   

I was at Mel's Drive-In on Sunset tonight and was greated by GAry Coleman who was acting as the manager of the restaurant for the evening.  The cast of the Surreal World had taken over the the cooking and serving duties for some stunt on the upcoming season.  We were served by Erik Estrada and Trishele from the Real World.  The food was prepared by Ron Jeremy and a crazy knife wielding Vanilla Ice.  To make matters worse Tammy Faye was going around preachimg to everyone.  Some good news though, Traci Bingham was the desert girl.   

Juts in case somebody out there cares.

Mr. Zero

    The Food Was Prepared By... Ron Jeremy?!

    by drew mcweeny

    Dear sweet God, there's no way I'm ever going to Mel's on Sunset. Isn't there a federal law of some sort about allowing The Hedgehog within 100 yards of a kitchen? After where that man's hands have been... oh, lord, I am afraid.

    dude, Ron Jeremy cooking your food?

    by PlantBoy!

    I hope that hairy bastard was wearing a hair net. I'd leave if that fuckin' guy was cooking my food. Although I'd probably watch if he started to bang one of the waitresses over the counter.

    Who ordered the spooge and backhair sandwich ?

    by Itchy

    I'd eat a slice of bologna off the floor of a San Fransisco bathhouse before I'd let Ronnie J. cook my food... oh wait. Basically the same thing.

    The first season of "The Surreal Life was actually the only non-MTV reality show I ever watched, except for "Big Brother 1" (and that was just for Jamie Kern). MC Hammer was great... you'd have to agree he's one of those celebs you can't help but like as a person even if you don't appreciate what they do. I loved him telling the other housemates that people in their positon (and look at the position they were in at that exact time) had no business to complain about anything; and telling Corey Feldman that he could get his career back on track if he could let go of his past. The scene in church, where Hammer, preaching, helped Vince Neil deal with the death of his four-year-old daughter, was also very touching and poignant. But this new cast of "The Surreal Life"... Ye Gods! I know that it's obvious that the show is cast with people who can safely be described as "has-beens"; but in that vein, Vanilla Ice is WAY too predictable a choice. Most of the cast-members in the first installment had at least done something legitimate career-wise, whether you think they did it well or not. But Tammy Faye Messner? Ron Jeremy? Sorry, that's not fame... that NOTERIETY. There is a difference, and that alone I think is going to keep this season of the show from being watchable or enjoyable.

    Jack Elam

    by HarrisonsDad

    I reported this to Harry and Father Gek yesterday, but apparently it's not important enough. The great character actor Jack Elam passed away monday at his home in Oregon at the age of 84. Some of you younger geeks might not remember Jack, but he brought lazy eye fun to the screen long before Marty Feldman. He could be sinister as a henchman or very funny as the cantakerous side-kick. Check out his listing on the IMdB. This man made a ton of movies and television appearances. Even though he hasn't done anything of late, that doesn't mean we shouldn't celebrate his life in Hollywood. That is all. Now go on with your lives.

    I am Rerun's complete lack of surprise

    by cheisok

    Gary Coleman was the premiere terrorist of the food service industry. He farted on Erik Estrada, urinated on Trichelle from the Real World, and as for Traci Bingham...well. For those of you that don't get this reference, it's golden. Oh one more thing...boycott BNAT, it's pretentious fluff masquerading as a soggy biscuit party. Stay home and watch the Director's Cut of Meatballs instead.

  • Oct. 24, 2003, 10:53 a.m. CST

    Only thing I saw Jack Elam in was Support Your Local Sherriff

    by GypsyTRobot

    He was pretty damn good in that. RIP Elam. *** BTW even people who totally hate reality shows have been missing out if they haven't been watching Survivor this year, hippie-pirate Rupert is awesome. Wish the producers would give him a cutlass so he could decapitate John and Jeff at the next tribal council.

    Rerun. Rerun had bitch tits.

    by Boris the Blade

    He developed bitch tits because his testosterone was too high and his body upped the estrogen....his sweating tits that hang enormous, the way we think of God's as big.

    Time for a mature discussion. . .

    by Jumpstart

    Okay, I have a serious question here. . .really, I'm not trying to be sarcastic. What IS the deal with Ron Jeremy anyway? Seriously, since I don't watch a lot of porn, I've only seen Mr. J fully clothed (and thank God for that!!), and I'm a straight female, the whole "extra-large member" thing for me just doesn't fly. I can't even get past the frizz-bomb that is the ball atop his shoulders. I'm really serious, I really want someone to explain to me, rationally, calmly, and not-condescendingly, what the hell IS it about Ron Jeremy that's so great?

  • Oct. 25, 2003, 9:03 a.m. CST

    Ron J

    by MonkeyDick

    He can hands free unclog a toilet...otherwise hes just a hedgehog looking slimeball.

  • Oct. 25, 2003, 10:43 a.m. CST


    by JackDonkey

    i think the reason ron jeremy is so popular is because no one can understand why a weird looking dude like that can be a huge porno star. From what I remember his weiner isn't that big either. It's kind of like a PT Cruiser, who the hell can like that car, yet it's everywhere.

    Some chick from some reality show is NOT a celebrity!

    by ZeroCorpse

    I'm sick of these reality show schmucks showing up everywhere, as if they're really celebrities. They're GAME SHOW CONTESTANTS! We don't see the winner of Jeopardy on any other shows, so why must these reality show assholes bother us with their presence? Man, FUCK reality shows. Reality shows are the slop for stupid American hogs. Wallow in it piggies! WALLOW!

    The allure of Ron Jeremy...

    by ZeroCorpse

    It's simple. He's a plain-looking (bordering on unappealing) guy. He's overweight. He's hairy. He's out of shape. He's not classically handsome, or super-buff... And he fucks the hottest, youngest women on the planet (in film, anyway, if you're into those kind of girls). When a straight guy watches a porno, he doesn't want to see some big, buff, handsome, perfect guy boning the women! He wants someone who looks more like everyman. The male actors in pornos serve as a sort of "stand-in" for the viewer, and the majority of porn viewers can't relate to a muscular stud, and are more like Ron. So watching Ron pound these hot women is re-affirming. It says "Even a fat, hairy slob not unlike yourself can get soem prime trim!" It says "Even gross slobs can score with hot women if they have the right credentials!" and it says "It's not the scenery women care about, it's the ride itself." and other cliche, not-very-true things. Ron's also a genuinely funny, pleasant guy. He doesn't take himself seriously, but he loves sex and knows what he's doing. The girls like him because A. He has a huge dick, and B. He's entertaining. Ultimately, Ron is the symbol of hope for a lot of guys who fall in the "average looking but great personality" category, of which there are many.

    BruceTimmOwns: Tried to e-mail you this...

    by Skyway Moaters

    ... but it came back 'undeliverable'. *** I don't think you're looking for what I have. It's a circa 2001 Handspring Visor Pro with a Visorphone "SpringBoard" plugin module that doubles as a wireless modem. So it's my cel phone, a web browser, e-mail client, address book, calendar; synchs with my desktop - Outlook etc, etc. You should check out something like the Kyocera 7135 - a small, stylish, an all in one: Palm PDA (color), cel phone, pager, web browser e-mail client etc. etc., and of course you'll need cel and dialup accounts. IMO this (wireless dialup) is the preferred solution as it works anywhere a cel phone does. *** The other option is to go with a Palm/Pocket PC with wi-fi, and access the Internet via 80211a/b/g 'hotspots' but I don't have any recommendations to make on that front. A quick internet search at Google or MySimon or wherever should yield PLENTY of products to compare however. *** Have a good one, Trubba Not, SM

    Traci Bingham

    by rengaw

    I need to watch just for Traci!!! I first saw her in a clone of "Saved by the Bell" called "California Dreams". She played a high school surfer girl who was part of a band called "California Dreams", and fantasied about joining the cast of "Baywatch". Happily, about "Dreams" ended, she did join the cast of "Baywatch" as a lifeguard. Life was good until they moved to Hawaii and fired all the Playboy babes on the show.
