the funniest thing I've experienced in days.

So, Thelma posted this a couple of days ago, and I think it is SO FUNNY, I had to share it.

Dear Sinbad,

Just caught you on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"and would just like to say, YOU'VE STILL GOT IT! (And by "it", I don't mean the windbreaker tracksuits)


P.S. Rob Thomas as your bitch? Genius!

"I don't watch tv."

Last night, I was home at home all night, trying to get rid of this cold that has suddenly taken over my life. I was downloading some torrents when I stumbled across a link for the "drunk history" series. I usually ignore these things, but I saw Mikey Cera in it, so I had to check it out. It is a 4 part series, with such notable stars as Jack Black, Clark Duke, Chrissie from Growing Pains, Jason Ritter and Danny McBride. I'm not going to lie, it is ridiculous.

And somehow, I stumbled across this poor soul.

{For Becky: He is apparently playing Wednesday, October 22, 2008 at 8:00pm and Thursday, October 23, 2008 at 12:00am at the forest 3 bristo place Edinburgh. If you're in the area, you should totes go.}

While watching these videos of people finding an outlet for their creativity as well as their exhibitionism, I was reminded of this girl that I used to work with. I don't want to say that I didn't like her, but just to be clear, I did not. She would always talk about how she didn't watch tv, because it was such a wasteland, she had too much reading to do for school, blah blah blah. One time, a different co-worker was telling me about a youtube video that I should watch, then, this coworker that I didn't like told me that she had seen that video, and how funny it was. She proceeded to tell me that she is addicted to youtube. She had viewed something like 200,000 videos. Wow, and TV is a waste of time?

Shout Out

I feel like I need to give a shout out to Thelma & Jooj's gang, The transpacific sketch project. I am always introduced or reminded of something delightful - today especially. The first post I read today was my FAVORITE excerpt from Love Song for J. Alfred Prufrock. And when I say FAVORITE excerpt, I mean, T.S. Eliot is a genius and every time I read it I feel a certain kinship with all of humanity. It makes me a better person, until my mind segues back into my normal mode of operation.

And then, THEN, Andrew Bird appeared. HOLY CRAP, this is what I wish I were creative enough to do with my 12 years of classical violin training.

SHOOT, he is so good. I am in awe. So thanks, transpacific kids!

What I meant when I said, "let me check my calendar."

- Let me get back to you with a lie I can't come up with at this moment.
- I may be crazy, but I'm not stupid.
