Dan Pasternack (Produzent von Portlandia) schreibt bei McSweeneys 'ne neue, tolle Kolumne über seine Sammlung oller signierter Comedy-Vinyls. In der neuesten Ausgabe schreibt er die Story seiner 34 Jahre dauernden Jagd nach allen Monty Python-Autogrammen auf:
A few days after I sent [Morgan Spurlock] the LP I got another text: “One down.” He sent a picture of Terry Gilliam’s signature on the cover. He also sent a photo of his young son, Laken, across a dinner table from Gilliam, doing the famous bridge scene from Holy Grail. At age seven, this kid knew the secret handshake. That’s solid parenting in my book. Morgan said that when Gilliam saw the album bearing Graham Chapman’s signature, he remarked, “Wow, he got the dead guy.” One left to go.
When the LP returned, the set was complete. Apparently Gilliam’s daughter helped get Cleese to sign it. When I saw the album, I cried. 34 years in the making. The grail was mine.
