Thoughts that Keep Me Awake...

I was watching "The Princess and the Frog" with Mandy, and some firefly just wrote a flaming heart with an arrow through it on a tree with his butt. This means that either

A) The firefly's butt is about 700 degrees Fahrenheit.

B) The firefly tore open its own flesh and scraped its biolunincescent innards out all over the bark, just for the pleasure of its cruel, thankless Disney masters.

Discuss!

Fabricating a Meme?

A few years ago, the word "Zombie" started popping up all over the internet. I have no idea if this was a happenstance trend, or if it was secretly fabricated by the entertainment industry. Along that vein, is it just me, or is the word "Hipster" - probably not seen or heard in fifty years - inexplicably appearing everywhere? If so, can someone please explain? Even better, can someone make it stop?

Sigh...

Jumpin' Jesus on a pogo stick. Just imagine if instead of over-reacting to pranks like this, the government used the same time, effort and taxpayers' money hunting down REAL internet child pornographers. Wouldn't that be amazing? The only problem is it would take hard work and the results wouldn't be instantaneous and sensational. As the parent of two young children, I say just give the jackass some community service with abuse victims so he realizes his bullshit isn't funny and move on.

The Illusionist

At Kew Gardens Cinema in Queens waiting for The Illusionist to start. Ok, there's commercials, but the SOUND ISN'T OPPRESSIVE like it is at every other theater, and the ticket was only $7 which is like traveling back in time to the '90s for NYC. The employees are all dressed casually, there are classic film posters in old movie frames, and they look OLD, they weren't bought yesterday from a poster mill and put in new frames.

If anyone has ever seen American Beauty, I was like Kevin Spacey, except instead of being happiest in my teenage years flipping burgers, I was happiest projecting at Bernardsville Cinema in NJ before Clearview bought it and ruined it. Friends would come and hang out, we would bring our guitars and play in the lobby on slow days, my friends Greg, Marietta & Jen worked there, we would make fun of the owners, (MORE CORN!) who, to be honest, were always nice to me- she even let me bring a small tv so I wouldn't miss Dr Who on PBS- I would make comic strips about the other people who worked there... all in all good times.

Ok watching these slides... Fergie & Her Black Eyed Peas won three Grammys? Was one for the shittiest, most embarrassing half-time show of all time?

Ok the movie's starting.

Buying Air, Plastic & Cardboard from Nabisco

A brand-new box of "Family Size!" Triscuits: (Yes, the box has obviously been opened, but how would I know what was inside if I hadn't opened it?)



What's inside: 9.25" of box - 4" of air = 57% crackers.



Maybe it's time to buy stocks in cardboard and plastic.

Well what do you suggest?

In a diner in Brooklyn having pancakes & watching the news. CNN wants to know how I'd rate President Obama's "handling" of the protests in Egypt. Not sure exactly what he's expected to do...

From the 2nd Letter of Fergie to the Corinthians

And yea, the Lord spake, saying "Slash, thou shalt not sell out and mix with the likes of the Black Eyed Pisum Sativum, even if thy bowl not just be merely great, but super." And so was it written, Amen.
