I was in one of those moods today, and needed to do something to lift me out of it, so here’s a compilation of all the hats that the Storyteller wore throughout the course of Indy Christian Review! Let me know if you want to see any more compilation videos like this.
If you watched my web series Indy Christian Review for any length of time, you’ll know that I have a dim view of the “end times” genre of Christian movies. After I watched the 2014 Left Behind movie starring Nicolas Cage, I was inspired to write a parody to Larry Norman’s song “I Wish We’d All Been Ready.” I wrote the words and asked Stephen Nasby to record it, which he did brilliantly, in my opinion. In fact, he did such a good job, that when I included the music video in my review of Left Behind, YouTube’s VERY flawed detection system immediately flagged it as the original song!
I had several people ask me to release the music video by itself, but the constant filing of claims and counterclaims has delayed the release for months.
Well, the battle’s finally over! The claims against the video have finally expired (since no real people ever look at the copyright claims on YouTube). So, better late than never, here’s I Wish They’d Quit Already.
So, my beloved plaid fedora is no more.
This happened yesterday on Talk Like A Pirate Day:
Something fishy’s going on…
Behind the Scenes
On September 19, 2012, Talk Like A Pirate Day, Cowhead the Pirate took over Indy Christian Review.
Cowhead the Pirate takes over Zack Lawrence’s show Indy Christian Review. After doing a review of his own, Zack breaks free and tries to fight off the invader. During the battle, Zack’s fedora is shot… and suddenly regenerates into a new hat!
I love Doctor Who. Definitely my favorite sci-fi after Star Wars. For those that don’t know, the main character of Doctor Who is an alien time traveler called The Doctor (I’ve got my own version of him that appears in my videos on occasion). As a Time Lord, the Doctor has the ability to regenerate when he’s dying, gaining a completely new body and personality, though it’s still the same character with the same memories. In this episode of Indy Christian Review, my hat does the same thing after Cowhead shoots it. If you didn’t know I was a geek, this should make it quite apparent to you!
When I was working on the schedule for this season of ICR, putting a show with time travel on Talk Like A Pirate Day set this whole crazy scheme in motion. With this video, The Battle for the Hat has officially begun.
Also significant about this video is that we finally have our first glimpse of the Mysterious Enemy. Who is he? Patience, all will be revealed in time.
September 20, Zack informs his assistant, Mr. Researcher, about what happened to the hat. The two begin to wonder if there’s a connection between Cowhead’s take over and the Mustard Monk’s attack. Meanwhile, the Mysterious Enemy recruits yet another agent… this time with Uncle Bob in the crosshairs.
This was a spur-of-the-moment video to help explain things to anyone confused by the Indy Christian Review episode, and also to let viewers of the Zack Lawrence Show YouTube channel know what’s going on. The video that Mr. Researcher is editing is a music video that will be going up on the channel on September 21st.
Despite the visual difference from the Chronicles episode, the cloaked figure is indeed the Mysterious Enemy. He is able to alter his appearance somewhat, the reason for which will be explained at a future date. The assassin he’s employing is someone with a very long history with Uncle Bob.
Uncle Bob gets a visit from his Canadian cousin, Cousin Maple! Will this result in an international incident?!

Today is the day where my initial reaction to anything I see online is disbelief. I can’t even believe that this is a real episode of Indy Christian Review!
