I’ll admit, my husband and I are completely obsessed with the animated TV show, the Venture Bros. Since being in the fandom, it seems to me that many Venture fans show the same type of crazy devotion that we do. So, I decided to chronicle what lengths we go to be good little Venturoos. Here’s just a few silly ways the Venture Bros has crept into our daily life.
No hardcore Venture fan is without the DVDs. But season 3 presented some choices in what type of disc to buy. Have a Blu-Ray player? Then get the Blu-Ray of season 3, complete with a CD of the awesome music from the show. But what if you don’t have a Blu-Ray player in multiple rooms? Well, buy the regular DVD version too. Yep, get both. It’s worth it, as the DVD version has a bigger shot of the Venture family enjoying some old-school video games. The menu screens are also cooler.
Excessively Quoting the Venture Bros
Everyone who has watched the Venture Bros with some regularity as probably yelled out an “Ignore Me!!!.” But you know you’re obsessed when you quote Doc and Jackson’s DVD commentary. Or you can have entire conversations with only Venture quotes. How about loudly calling your wife “Tenderoni” and “Pookums” in public? (in the Monarch’s voice) Other people hear this and not know what the hell you’re talking about. But that’s okay, explaining it to them is a way to spread the Venture love.
In the mood for some costumed aggression? Nothing say “I’m a dork!” quite like dressing up as your favorite Venture Bros character. What makes it even better is you never dreamed you would ever want to dress up like any character from any TV show. That’s how obsessed you are. Your family and friends may start to question your sanity. You have to explain to just about everyone what “cosplay” is. For a compete account see this.
Redecorating Your House
Maybe you had the sudden urge to obtain magenta bedsheets, a round bed or build a giant Floating Cocoon. You might have grown an appreciation for bad 1970’s colors and furnishing. Again, your friends and family may ask questions. Oh well, your abode looks Venture-tastic, so who cares!
Not just oblivious tattoos, like the Monarch’s symbol or the Venture logo. The best tattoo is one that only other Venture freaks can recognize and appreciate. Mine is a heart/bomb with a fuse. On one side is the Monarch’s wings, the other side is a tube of “Pink Poodle” lipstick. On the heart is a banner that says Love Never Blows Up and Gets Killed. I always liked the idea of fan tattoos only a hand full of people would understand.
These are just a small sampling of Venture Bros themed hobbies. Pretty soon, there will be bobbleheads and action figures to collect. There’s also the rest of season 4 this summer. Now, if there was only a Venture video game, I would be complete.
