MPDP appears in jeans and a brown suede shirt. She's in some kind of OK Corral-type set. (Is it a set? A real town? What do I care? I'm calling it Goofball Gulch.) Frank (in cowboy hat and fringed vest) and Doug (denim shirt and leather chaps) pace off, turn, and aim pieces of wood carved into vaguely gun-like shapes at each other. Professor Frink: "It'd be great if those were real guns." Me: "Maybe, if they were loaded." Frink: "Yeah." Me: "Yeah, but who do you hope is the faster shot?" He has to think about that. Doug notices Ty standing on top of a building and aims his "gun" at him. Ty goes all sheriff on Doug's ass. It's pretty unconvincing. But wait! If you're not impressed with Ty's acting skills, maybe you'll like him as a stunt man. Or a guitarist. Or whatever else he gets up to as he attention-whores his way through yet another episode.
Back to MPDP, who's in front of a sign that I believe reads "Sherif." Frink: "Doesn't 'sheriff" have two 'F's?" Me: "Usually, but they've only got $1000. Gotta cut corners somewhere." Homeowners Stacey and Chris, and Jody and Michelle, want their bedrooms redone. Jody and Michelle want their "stadium-sized" bedroom redone because it's the room they haven't done yet. It's a fairly large room, though I don't think it's the largest bedroom yet. White walls, beige carpet. There are two large arched window covered with white custom-made shutters. They've got a lodgepole entertainment unit, but they're over the Southwest thing. They want to update the room now. The king-sized bed has no frame and neutral linens; there's a blanket box in orangey-toned wood at the end of the bed. Over in the opposite corner of the room, there's a small desk and a quilt stand. There's a wide chest of drawers in a medium orangey-toned stain with a large matching mirror above it along the wall opposite the entertainment unit. There are children's drawings and a large framed wedding photo on the wall here, a pennant and a wreath there. Very little of the furniture in this room goes together. Michelle says it gets very hot there in the summer, and adds that the room is so large that their boys will play football in there. There's a shot of a large triptych, each panel of which features a single tulip (reddish pink blossom on yellow background; yellow blossom on eggplant background; white blossom on red background). They love these paintings; they got them in San Francisco. They're by artist Warren Knapp, whose slogan, "Big Art for Big Walls," makes me think that he's definitely found his niche market. He appears to be targeting those people who've bought monster homes and McMansions and don't have a clue how to decorate their twenty-foot high foyer or their 520-square foot living room with the sixteen-foot cathedral ceiling. More power to him. He could also go with "Mass-Produced Art for Mass-Produced Homes." The style is sort of greeting-card illustration if you ask me. I'd buy a card that looked like this, but I wouldn't spend a pile of money to get a big mass-produced version of it for my walls. Anyway, those are "their colours": purple, muted red, and gold. Michelle says that Doug does a lot of things that push the limits, but she's never seen a room of his she hasn't liked. I have to assume she hasn't seen the Brazil room. She thinks the best thing they could see when they open their eyes are some colours that work with the rest of the house and a sitting area, because they both love to read and lounge and listen to music. They want it to be their getaway place.
