Awesome. Christopher Walken is always unintentionally hilarious. Even him reading the lyrics from a horrible pop song is comedy gold.

"Fast ship? She's fast enough, for you...old man"

Strong, but it's tough to top Cartman's version:

As great as Walken is, Cartman wins by far!

I love the Cartman version. (Though I question Sturmy's choice of links. Try this and this instead.

I also want to give a shout-out to Jude Law's take.

As if I needed ANOTHER reason to love Christopher Walken.....

I just pasted the 1st one that came up when I googled it on youtube.

Sam, where is a review of last night's Springsteen show?

Sturmy, I didn't get the chance to see Springsteen last night, regrettably. I heard it was great, though. Any other Midnight Sunners go?

A good friend of mine from college grew up next door to Christopher Walken. She said every holiday season, they'd throw a party, and usually he'd come. Walken would either sit in the corner and talk to almost no one, or get up and dance and be the life of the party. There was never any middle ground, she told me.

you're welcome.
