|I love prank calls, and Longmont Potion Castle knows
how to do them well. Apparently, Longmont has quite a cult following behind him, and
I can see why.
Over the course of this album, Longmont comes up with a whole variety of
ways to harass people over the phone. The following are only a few of them:
He calls up a random household under the guise of being a UPS worker and insists that
the person has ordered a bunch of live lambs from Lebanon. After the guy denies
responsibility, he tells him that if he won't accept the package, he must at least pay the
ninety-eight dollar freight charge.
He calls a strip bar claiming he has a series of erotic photographs of himself.
Upon being told that the strip bar only accepts female dancers, he claims that the
bar manager is "proposing a complete Darwinian society." After he admits
that he doesn't really know what a Darwinian society is, he goes on to use a number of
other long words in the wrong context.
He attempts to order a haircut from a record store.
He gets a call from a surveyist asking about his concernedness about the Y2K bug.
He goes on to explain his (rather elaborate) plans for the New Year.
He calls numerous places, and, using a sampler (or something similar), contorts his
voice to undescribable lengths, all to the confusion of the person on the other end of the
And that's just a small sample. Longmont's prank call ideas are diverse and
numerous. He must be one of the most creative prank callers in prank call history.
He must be a... a genius. If you haven't laughed yourself silly by the end of
this CD, then there's probably something wrong with you. Screw the Jerky Boys, this
is the real shit.
