Wot's all this then?
It's a Python page, me ol' beauty... a very LOOOOOOONG Python page... so you'd better get used to the idea! If you've been here before, you'll notice that I have been updating this page infrequently, adding new sounds and text at a stunningly slow rate, and trying to provide the world with some of the lesser known Python bits. For example, how many people knew of Michael Palin's Professor Gumby article for American Libraries, the David Letterman Top Ten list about John Cleese, or the Python snail mail address? (Check my Various Bits section for new additions) Textual info, such as scripts from the telly series and the films, are readily available at other sites on the WWW, so I'm trying to refrain from placing them here... unless I come across funny bits that I haven't seen at the other places (I am planning on transcribing several newspaper articles in the near future). I am open to suggestions (though let's keep the rude ones to a minimum!), and would like to hear from Pythonites from around the globe.

Take it away, Eric the orchestra leader...
For everyone out there who simply must know all about those wild Pythons, this really isn't the place to look. But click here anyway to read what they wrote of themselves in the hilarious and massively oversized
In 1995, Terry Jones presented a guided tour of the Crusades, the 11th and 12th century struggle for control of the Holy Land between the Muslims and Christians, on the History Channel and A&E. The program (in four parts) got good reviews, was informative, and was a lot of fun. All Python fans should try to see it because you'll enjoy it AND learn something!

Professor D.P. Gumby
Good evening. A long time ago, Michael Palin wrote an article on Professor D.P. Gumby's famous speech on the expanding library situation of the future for American Libraries. Previously only available to people with way too much time on their hands to find such an outlandish thing, this article can now be read in the privacy and comfort of your own home... or office... or school.
These sounds are now available for the first time ever to the public, thanks to a special agreement with no one in particular. They have been sampled economically, but the quality, to paraphrase a certain Hungarian/English phrasebook, may make your nipples explode with delight. For limited time only, these finely tooled hand-crafted UK wonder .WAVs are available for the small contribution of a nudge, a wink, and a quick shag courtesy Anne Elk (not too much to ask, really). Thank you, and piss off.

Python's Snail Mail Address
Here's the address of the Python offices, as sent to me by Kim "Howard" Johnson. It netted me an autographed photo of Eric Idle (in Hindu warrior garb from "Splitting Heirs") and a program from the Hollywood Bowl shows.
