Title: Moe from Winnipeg Fan Thread! (from Winnipeg)
Post by: Alec on February 20, 2007, 09:11:52 PM
So, as many of you may or may not know, I was born and raised in Wininpeg, Manitoba, Canada. As such, I often try to explain Winnipeg to people. Well one day, one of those people happened to be a certain fellow named "Derek Yu".

To help immerse Derek in the frigid gray city of crushing depression that is Winnipeg, I headed off to YouTube. I started searching for "Winnipeg" and paging through the results....

...In time... I would discover far more than I had wished to learn.

I came across a profile called "moefromwinnipeg (http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=moefromwinnipeg)". Essentially, an old man, an extra in the film business, a fellow desperate for attention, who lives in Winnipeg.

Observe (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EH0Z5Mtubfg).

Genius?

Recently Moe has been getting agitated with his lack of popularity on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqou8bXPZ58).

He's taken to starting his own website, YouTubeCdn.com. For this page, he downloads the index.html files for other important website, (IMDB among them), and uploads them to his webspace. Since they're just stolen html files, they don't load properly and fail to be anywhere near as useful as a link to the actual site would be.

What will Moe do next? More videos of his paper puppet "Mr. Bojangles" dancing near a selection of inanimate objects? More half naked rants? Full nudity?

Only time... will tell.

LOOK INTO THE SKY AND SEE THE TOWERS
NO MORE REFLECTION ARE THEY IN THE SUN
EMPTY SPACE IN THE SMOKE FILLED AIR
SILENCE IS FOREVER IN THE STILL GROUND
ANGELS FLOAT SEARCHING FOR A LOVED ONE
GROUND ZERO IS NOW A NAME THAT LIES STILL
A MEMORY FOREVER IN THE MINDS OF MANY
STRENGHT CIRCLES THE FERTILE GROUND
FUTURES ARE PASSED ON TO THE LIVING
A GREAT LOVE HAS RISEN FROM THE DEBRIS
ASHES TO ASHES DUST TO DUST HAS STRENGHT
UNITY IS CREATED THAT NO MAN SHALL DESTROY
HEROES AND GREAT MEN CONTINUE TO WALK
A SMILE RISES UPWARD INTO THE HEAVENS
THE PAIN WILL SUBSIDE THE FOND MEMORIES
WILL BE FOREVER
MAURICE J ASSELIN


...I'd post his crazy face but... I'd rather not have to see that again.

..but since I'm in winnipeg, I COULD probably look him up in the phone book..

You know what? I'm gonna do that... If only I knew his last name... Ah well, unless anyone is gonna tell me I may as well not bother.

When you said Super Fish face I remembered the song about Gay Sex they had just before the turn of the millenium...

That guy made me think of my dad. And Tourettes guy. Why not try and walk a mile in HIS shit?

You may be a bit surprised about this, but I had actually heard of Winnipeg before this thread. A guy named Aaron Funk who hails from your great depressing city released a cd called Winnipeg is a frozen shithole, which I'm listening to now.  ;)
It's quite an aggresive album, as you can see when you look up the song names. Songs like, "Winnipeg is Fucking Over", "Die Winnipeg Die Die Die Fuckers Die" and the lovely "Winnipeg is a Dogshit Dildo".
Ever heard of this? (I suggest you don't start of with that cd if you want to appreciate his work(unless you are into electronic hardcore), he has made a couple of 'softer' records that you should probably listen to first)

Just a little random fact about Winnipeg I guess. :)

Awesome!  I've been waiting eagerly for Aquaria to come out.  To hear that you're from Winnipeg is cool because that's where I live  ;D.  Gotta get all my friends to buy the game as well.

So my brother and I found Moe's phone number. I was in Winnipeg last month, and we were considering calling him up to film an interview with him... but we never got around to it. :(

I have the good fortune (if you wanna call it that) of going to winnipeg. It was military related and with NATO. For those 2 very reasons, Winnipeg sucked ever worse than it would have by itself.

Still home is home.

I'm tempted to buy my name on the credits (http://www.clearlakemovie.com/newsDonate_2008-02-28.html) for that film, just so i can be in the same credits as Moe from Winnipeg. 8)
