THIS TIME IT'S FOR REAL: WINTER STORM RICHARD AYOADE


This frigid wind hell... THIS IS WINTER STORM RICHARD AYOADE!

Schools closed down all around the state a day in advance (even MSU Mankato closed and that never happens!), fifty mile hour wind gusts creating white-outs, snow drifts a foot high - yep it is time to name the first Winter Storm of 2014, Winter Storm Richard Ayoade.

I first came across Richard Ayoade in the epic Garth Marenghi's Darkplace as Dean Lerner. This brilliant show caused me to hunt him down in Man To Man With Dean Lerner. And then we were all treated to his character Moss on the IT Crowd. That lovable nerd sealed the deal and I will be a fan for life. Need further proof? Richard Ayoade directed the Critical Film Studies episode of Community that was an homage to the film My Dinner With Andre for crying out loud!!

 

 Let's kick this off with some Garth Marenghi's Dark Place. This is not the first time we have shared episodes of this fantastic show on this blog; in fact fellow Winter Storm Matt Berry was also a star of this series.

  

 And now for the tie-in ahow, Man To Man With Dean Lerner.

 

 And now let's go IT Crowd crazy!!









Okay I have to go watch the IT Crowd now. Stay safe everyone and just stay home if you can and watch Winter Storm Richard Ayoade from the comfort of you warm and toasty abode.
