The Showcase of Depravity

This is the long hard truth. It goes extra deep.

"Comedy's a dead art form. Now tragedy, that's funny." The Showcase of Depravity showcases... depravity. Wisdom and humor from the perspective of a few disgruntled (& sexy) video store professionals.

Media Wave Wins Yet Another Popularity Contest, The County Rejoices

Once again, the 2 stunningly attractive faces of Media Wave (Jordan and Drew, as if you had any doubt) had their gloriously pants-creaming images published in a major national magazine. No, not Tiger Beat or Seventeen (not yet, anyway), this time the Fairfield County Weekly was lucky enough to have the two Media Wave super-stars grace their pages. The Fairfield Weekly isn't so much national in the amount of states - or towns - that it is circulated in, but more it's spirit, so it still counts. We usually don't do charity press ops like County magazines, but we did it because we like to feed our egos, and because they paid us in fried chicken and mac & cheese - our standard wages at The Wave.

Here is the article for your reading enjoyment, and, at risk of overloading your computers with sexiness, our now classic picture will also be provided for the ladies (and so the guys can know what to model themselves after). No, we're not gay for eachother. Yes, this was the actual picture published in the newspaper.

Jordan Clifford and Drew Taylor of Media Wave Video

MediaWave has won Best Video Store yet again, and as usual, has a lot of new things brewing at its community gathering spot on Post Road in Fairfield. The VHS tapes are almost entirely sold and packed away, with the exception of some children's titles, allowing even more room for DVD and video game selections. There is a full-scale disc repair service now, and couches in the center section where the new releases are kept, so there's a lot less elbowing to see what's on the shelves. Of course, there's still the dollar-back incentive for returning a new movie the next day, the low rental costs (between $1 and $4) and the 12th rental-free deal. And, says Drew Taylor, one of Media Wave's longtime employees (he's on his sixth year), they're trying to add even more. "We're getting new TVs and working on a computerized kiosk so you can bring a printed stub instead of searching through boxes. We're digitizing the whole catalog." That catalog includes all the stuff you can't find at those cookie-cutter video stores, including extensive documentaries, foreign films, gay films, music films, and video games for all the new gaming systems on the near horizon. "This year all the major gaming companies are coming out with new systems," says Taylor. "We're talking about turning part of the store into a games and tapas lounge." Whether or not owner Paul Jordanopoulos will go for Spanish food inside his store remains to be seen, but the video game market is likely to remain a huge part of Media Wave's business. "The game industry is bigger than the movie industry," says Jordan Clifford, a four-year employee noted for his wild red afro. Box office sales certainly back him up.

You heard it folks, I, Jordan Clifford, am indeed noted for my wild red afro. I'm also noted for my wild red political leanings (down with capitalism, commrades!) and my wild style. Lucky for me, I was quoted on the one thing I know nothing about, and none of my unique Seinfeld-esque take on ordinary situations translated into print.

I wish I could thank the readers for this award and recognition, but not many of you had anything to do with it. In fact, for the most part, every achievement we've ever called our own has been due entirely to our talent, connections and sexual skillz, so where have you all been? Why aren't you guys out there saying "Jordan and Drew for town representatives!", "Jordan and Drew for People's 'Sexiest Men Alive' cover!", "Jordan and Drew for Pope!", etc.

So, to our beloved readers, enjoy this prize with us as yet another achievement of the Showcase of Depravity/Media Wave/Brooklyn We Back Productions crew, but you might want to take this time to reflect on what you're doing in your own life and in your own towns to get us even higher than we are right now. And by that I include chemically induced highs.

Ask not what we can do for you, but what you can do for and to us.

Thank you all, and thank you us
