That's rather creepy...
Indeed. That's why I posted it.
talk about recycling
That's a good one.
WTMI!!!!They didn't have to let that one get out!
Harlan Ellison wrote a short story on this very subject, Laugh Track (http://harlanellison.com/review/angry.htm#laugh)
I'd forgotten about that one. Huge HE fan.
Hello, Tim and Tim. Thanks for stopping by and boogie boogie to you both.
What a delightful thought.
That is pretty creepy. And kind of cool :)
I think it's creepy too.
I don't need the TV on for that...
No? You have your own laugh track running in your head?
What a way to gain posterity: the guy with the nasally guffaws at Jerry Lewis routines keeps going on and on and on....
I didn't think it like that. Still creepy though.
I agree with Adam. Talk about recycling :)
That was a funny comment.
well that is pretty awfulsome dead person is coaching me when to laugh...no wonder I don't like laugh tracks.yucky !cheers, parsnip
I don't like them either, Parnip. To me, if a show needs laugh tracks then it's not funny enough to be a real comedy.
The actors are also dead. "I see dead people."
I haven't seen that movie in forever.
Lol! As long as I can hear, I'm happy!!!
I agree with that.
no kidding! Neat fact. Maybe it's time to re-do these.
Or get rid of them all together. I never like shows with laugh tracks. So fake.
Isn't it nice when someone else does the cooking...and they do it so well? And thank you so much for your helpful comment on my blog in relation to Google+, I really appreciate it. I love your profile pic. Very festive. :)
Thanks, Linda. Did you decide if you're gonna give it a try yet?
And even more interesting, did you know that Bing Crosby himself came up with the concept of the laugh track. He invented it and patterned it, earning him a fortune beyond his own musical and acting skills. Brilliant man.
No, I didn't know that. Neato. Did just watch a movie with him in it though. White Christmas.
