QEFTSG 12/02/03 Puttin' Style and Funk Into The Punk.
Da Kid- Steve Smith, a 20something 5'10" 170 pound Nail Biter!!!. This intervention was the brain child of the producers. In their words... "He needed some Funk...and style, that would work, Funk and Style."
Our heroes invade during a production meeting of the show that Steve is a co-host for, in NY. We find bad hair, bad toe jam, and old boxers on the science experiment for the week. Onward to the apartment/big storage unit of a domicile. Have you ever heard of a place with One closet? And a large coat closet at that. We meet Jackie, his main squeeze. We also see Jackie all over the place! Everywhere you turn, there is a Jackie knick-knack-odd-end-wallhanging dust collector. The only redeaming value of the place is that you have to enter the tub/shower from the end, quick grab a trapeze bar and we can really slip and slide!!!! :drool
Shopping Off to the city, first stop... some hoity-toity clothing store with a DJ booth and juice bar. Are we shopping or camping for the day?!?!?! Little Punkster doesn't like to have his shirt tails tucked in, says it looks stupid. Does he realize that whine makes him look stupid, Nawwwww!!!!! And quit biting your nails!!! Lunch is coming soon!!!
Jai takes him to a great gallery where Eddie Kramer (record producer) has a showing of timeless shots of Rock Idols. The lucky Punkster ends up with an onstage shot of Jimi for his wall and gets to meet Eddie. Da Kid better know you can't do better than Hendrix(you kids need to Touch the Sky in a Purple Haze some day:rofl)
Ted takes him to some heath place where he learns to drink his Green Veggies. That Smoothie would be nice and smooth with a double shot of Crown Royal.
Thom takes Punkster to "Hold Everything" a cool furniture store stacked with Rattan and Wicker. Being an Island Guy, I have to find that store. Wonder what they have in Palm trees.
Kyan has the long term project of correcting that sucky hair of his. Putting foil in layers to adjust for any stray radio signals and a chop cut, the process starts and will continue.
The Home Back at the flop house, uncovered is style and panache and an equal amount of Punk and Jackie. Learning to share is good for a couple. After shaving lessons, and boy were the guys glad that he doesn't race the razor, he is off to the show. Making a grand entrance, he is a hit with the ladies, and some of the guys:P All in all another victory for the Fabulous Five. From the previews, it seemed like they got assinine guy #2 but ended up being a Punk who needed some Funk and Style.
