The mad drummer

That crazy drummer from The Office episode, Pam’s Replacement, was played by Steve Moore.

From Steve’s website: On June 1, 2010 a random fan uploaded a performance of Steve Moore on YOUTUBE entitled, “This drummer is at the wrong gig.” The video immediately went viral receiving over 5 million hits in less than a month.

Here’s Steve’s performance, via “Rick K and The Allnighters”:


Darryl misses Clippy

Darryl Misses Clippy

I felt a tinge of geek nostalgia last week while watching The Office Season 7 finale, Search Committee.

When Darryl is told that he will need to supply a resume as part of his application for branch manager, he calls customer support: “Yes, there used to be a paper clip that would pop up and say, ‘Looks like you are writing a letter or resume. Would you like help?’ I believe his name was… Clippy.’

For those of you too young to remember, Clippy was a real (albeit annoying) onscreen assistant introduced in Microsoft products in the late 1990s. Dunder Mifflin needs to update its software!
