Morning Regurge: Spider-Man Musical on Letterman

I know, it’s 10 ’till noon, but I had some business to attend to this morning, and didn’t have time for the Morning Regurge before I left. So just be happy yer getting it now. So… I’m going through my reader, and I see this posted on It’s a piece from Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark that was aired on the Letterman show. I’m not really even that big of a Spider-Man fan, but this hurts to watch. It really is pretty painful. And when I say it’s painful, I don’t mean in the “OH GAWD THIS SO TERRIBLE, SOMEONE PLEASE PLUNGE A RUSTY SPOON INTO MY EYE SOCKETS AND SCRAPE AWAY THE IMAGES!!!” I’m sure some will take it that way, but I mean it’s painful because I know what this will do to Buttery Wholesomeness and D20. See I’ve know these two since highschool, and back then they were huge musical theater geeks. So much in fact that they were planning their own Spider-Man musical (I think it was called Spider-Man: Whisk me Away… or Spider-Man: THWIPP! or something like that). Just remembering them scribbling away in their notebooks, sketching costume ideas, trying on different types of spandex… I know this is going to hurt them. And I don’t want to see them in pain. So, please don’t watch this guys. You don’t need to suffer anymore than you have when you first heard about this abomination. For the rest of you, go ahead and watch, but make sure there’s no rusty spoons near by. We don’t want you hurting yourselves.

    Yeah, that production never got off the ground. Mostly because I have no singing voice, and Dave didn’t have the build to be Spidey. I might have been able to pull off the costume, but had absolutely no interest in playing a good guy.

    Problems, problems, problems. Eventually, I quit after having to explain the production’s title, “Thwipppt!” to our third prospective backer.

  2. It’s best you move on… and finish that Cloak & Dagger musical you’ve been working on!
