I will pee….

I think if you click on the image you can see the .gif.  This came from http://avid.tumblr.com/post/4758228184/and-ron-eats-a-lot  to give credit where credit is due. 

And yes – I did miss a post completely yesterday.  I got busy with parents and children and doctor’s forms to fill out and you know, it happened.  But I push forward and make up for it by posting twice today.

Lord of the Vuvuzela!

This made me laugh early in the morning – an almost impossible task.  Nicely done:

Cause it made me laugh…

I followed a link on the Lhasa de Sela website and came across these videos.  And even though I was sad over the passing of Lhasa, these brought a smile and a laugh.  I was the property manager on a production of Strindberg’s The Father… or was it Miss Julie… eh, anyway, it was glum.  Yes, I am quite aware he was a master of the naturalist style, his works a pillar of theatrical repertoire but Strindberg in my mind is synonymous with humorless misogynist.  Which makes these even funnier… (go direct to the website to see all four shorts in better quality than the YouTube version below – Strindberg and Helium)

I’ve been vulcanized!

This is it!  Now I too can be a Vulcan … perhaps a slightly manly Vulcan, but a Vulcan just the same (I couldn’t find a female Vulcan).

(I had the jpeg here but it was even creeping me out – so I took it down.)

Its enough to make my geeky heart giddy.  I kind of like the hairstyle – it takes about 20 years off my age doncha think?   Or maybe its the ears that do it…. You can vulcanize yourself too – just follow the link below for the full clip (with audio) and then vulcanize yourself and send me a copy!

Just because…

I saw this on the net somewhere in my surfing and thought those of you who are Next Generation/Picard fans might enjoy.  I personally am an old school Trekker – Kirk, Spock and the rest.  Never did watch the new shows… perhaps I should.  Anyway, here you are the Picard Song (its kind of long):

It really reminded me of this … They’re taking the hobbits….

And then there’s this too:

Snape is not cut out for office work…

I was told we had a new hire in the office.  As I typed away, I had the oddest sensation of my senses being ensnared and my concentration penetrated…blog snape overshoulder The new guy, er …Professor, he says he wants to be called, Professor … did not really mesh well with the rest of the office.  He complained bitterly about our kitchen muttering something about “muggles” and our use of “bizarre contraptions.” blog snape kitchen

He brought our copy clerk to tears, yelling at her repeatedly “Page 394! Your copier has eaten my Page 394!” blog snape copier

The whole office was cowering when he discovered someone had “pilfered” from his personal stores (i.e., the Prof’s  sandwich had been taken from the fridge and he was in a tizzy, threatening the culprit with poisoned pumpkin juice??? blog snape fridge

After that he went back to ranting and raving in the copyroom about his missing Page 394…blog snape 394

Needless to say, Prof. Snape was canned before the end of the day for cursing …

Too bad.  We’ll miss him.  He was kind of cute.  Personally, I’ll miss the cape swishing down the hall.

(I was most pleasantly surprised by receiving my own full-sized cut-out of Snape – THANK YOU LR RL!!!!!)

I love New York

What a cliche! But its true and I couldn’t find a better way of expressing my three day adventure into another realm.  I spent three days in museums (2 at the Met and 1 at the Frick – although, really the Frick only took a couple of hours – its a small collection but a great one).  I also was privileged to see a wonderful piece of theater – Waiting for Godot with Nathan Lane, Bill Irwin, John Goodman and John Glover.   And I got to visit the old neighborhood – Jackson Heights!  I will go into further details in future posts.  I just want to share a quick painting whose composition made me laugh.  Its the Ascension of Christ by Hans Suess von Kulmbach at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  My photo isn’t as nice as the one at the link.  Take a look.

The fact that all we see of Christ are his feet as he ascends struck me as odd.  Frankly, it made me guffaw (I’m not sure if guffawing is acceptable behavior in the European Painting section of the Met, but guffaw I did).  The angle that the onlookers get on the whole Ascension adds even a bit more humor to the dangling feet above them.  Its such a claustrophobic compositon of something that is usually portrayed in a grandiose manner.  And then I discovered that this painter was an apprentice of Durer’s and Durer had a similar composition in a woodcut.  Click here.  The fact that Durer had composed this image first gave it a little more “respectability” I suppose (to be fair, Durer’s was a woodcut and the composition works a little better within the constrictions of that medium) but it still makes me laugh.  It has a rather Monty Pythonish feel about the whole thing, don’t you think? 

I promise to update soon with more “insightful” posts about what I saw in the big city.   I know you (whoever “you” are who reads this) can hardly wait.

And by the way – you’ll notice the dearth of Harry Potterish things strewn about the blog.  In order not to ruin the movie for myself and others I have put a blog moratorium on all things Half Blood Prince – it was getting so I was beginning to feel I had seen about half of the film from trailers and stills and posters and interviews and what-nots.  I am really looking forward to seeing it this week though and will of course update here eventually.

Makes sense to me….

Since I have nothing clever to say I’ll differ to comments made by Mr. E:

6/26/2009E ON MJ:
EELS leader Mark Oliver Everett aka E reflects on Michael Jackson’s artistic legacy at AOL Music today. Read it HERE. Furthermore, E tells EELStheband.com: “Michael Jackson was the King of Pop, Bruce Springsteen is The Boss, and I could not be The Assistant Night Manager of Rock without them.”

Total Eclipse of the Heart?

I saw this over at the  Radical Radish blog and it just made me laugh out loud.  It is very well done and very funny – I never realized how truly weird the video to this song was … what the hell were they originally trying to imply with the video to this song anyway?  Take a look – its called a Literal Video….

Brutally Honest

I haven’t wasted time on line taking one of these silly tests in ages. I tried the Brutally Honest Personality Test and here’s my result. I had to try it – where else could you find a question about Winnie the Pooh and Elmer Fudd fighting to the death? I, and those who know me, would really quibble with referring to me as a “Pollyanna” (altho’ the image does kind of look like me).  Perhaps I need to take the test again….

honest

So, you want to make the world a better place? Too bad it’s never gonna happen. Of all the types, you have to be one of the hardest to find fault in. You have a selfless and caring nature. You’re a good listener and someone who wants to avoid conflict. You genuinely desire to do good.

Of course, these all add up to an incredibly overpowered conscience which makes you feel guilty and responsible when anything goes wrong. Of course, it MUST be your fault EVERYTIME.

Though you’re constantly on a mission to find the truth, you have no use for hard facts and logic, which is a source of great confusion for those of us with brains. Despite this, in a losing argument, you’re not above spouting off inaccurate fact after fact in an effort to protect your precious values.

You’re most probably a perfectionist, which in this case, is a bad thing. Any group work is destined to fail because of your incredibly high standards.

Disregard what I said before. You’re just easy to find fault in as everyone else!

Luckily, you’re generally very hard on yourself, meaning I don’t need to waste my precious time insulting you. Instead, just find all your own faults and insult yourself.

Are you brave enough to try the Brutally Honest Personality Test! Click here and GO!
