July 26, 2007

After taking into consideration your helpful comments yesterday, I think I’ll be asking for a somewhat stacked, A-line-ish cut with a few more layers tonight. Not Posh, exactly, because that’s a haircut that has to be followed night and day by an on-staff stylist wielding a pair of scissors—believe me, I’ve had cuts similar to that in the past and the maintenance was insane—plus I have crazy pregnancy hair right now (it sort of freaks me out, actually, how my hair and fingernails are in this fast-forward growth mode; it somehow reminds me of those time lapse nature videos where the flower barrels out of the ground and explodes in a tawdry display of dripping pistil and stamen and ovule) and so a very stylish style isn’t going to work for very long, but in the Posh neighborhood, if you will. Ghetto Posh, without the money or the sour expression or the terrifying rock-hard boobs.

Speaking of celebrities, I saw Mean Girls last night (why? Because Tina Fey, that’s why) and I found it sort of excruciating to watch Lindsay Lohan, and not just because the movie included 5827 close-up shots of the freckle on her upper lip. There’s something so trainwrecky about watching footage of a celebrity before All the Really Bad Stuff started to happen, you want to shout through the screen and warn them to use a LIMO for the love of god—and to maybe rethink the boozy idea that playing with kitchen knives = sexy (christ, at least haul out some legitimate S&M accouterments, you know? Ball gag that Minillo chick)—and yet there’s nothing you can do.

(JB deserves props for watching that with me [although the plethora of miniskirts surely eased his burden], especially since I picked out our last movie: Jet Li’s The One. What can I say, I was really hoping for an ass-kicking 90 minutes of crazy special effects and nonstop action-fu, but it is in fact a terrible, terrible turdfest with the cheesiest wire work ever—they may as well have dangled Li from a fishing pool and swooped him clumsily around for an hour. Bah.)

This week has been kind of dragging for me, and every time I need what basically amounts to a hit of mental nitrous oxide, I watch this video. Oh man, I just watched it again. So, so funny. Bookmark that puppy, and hit me back: what’s the best thing you’ve seen on the internet lately?

ESP! For some reason I ended up watching videos of babies eating lemons a few months ago (you know how youtube is, you start out watching Dramatic Chipmunk and 5 hours later you’re watching infants and citrus) and I laughed my ass off. That weekend we were lounging around and I decided to feed the dog a lime wedge from my drink and he kinda licked it for a while before I lost interest. Then I looked back and he was trying to fish the other wedge out of my drink. Heh.

The best thing I read on the internet lately was when I read the beginning part of your entry – the “stacked, A-line-ish cut” part – as “stacked Amish cut”, imagined this, and sat here for several minutes trying to figure out the best way to tell you that perhaps that wasn’t the way to go.

I have to say I first saw my favorite internet video on the tv show webjunk. Now my hubby has it on his webpage. It is called “Whistle Tips with Bub Rub.”

They go woooowooo. I laugh every time I see it. Bub Rub and his sis are classic. “They jus’ for decoration.”

Here’s the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSOSJ68xOBA

We are CONSTANTLY going WOOWOO because of that video. When I first saw it I was crying for days, it’s so funny.

Feeding lemons to babies is just wrong!! I mean, where’s the tequila?

The funniest video I’ve seen in a while? The one I took of Captain Destructo picking up his toys while communicating with bats, apparently.

I had to make the same apology to my husband for The One, except we went to see it in the theater. Technically, it was my *friend*’s fault… he made the suggestion, but somehow that bounces back on me.

Oh, and if you haven’t seen the Filipino prisoners performing Thriller, that’s what you must run to YouTube for, immediately.

Last, I would like to say that Carl Hiaasen’s Miami Herald column is awesome. I like him as an author and I have found him to be a pretty damn good read as a journalist too.

My kids never make those faces, they love lemons and lime juice. I really don’t know what’s wrong with their tastebuds.

We have been saying “I like Turtles” like crazy around here after any random question. hahahaha

If you’ve seen Will Ferrell’s video “The Landlord,” with his buddy’s two-year-old daughter Pearl, you need to see the next (and last) video of Will with Pearl, titled “Good Cop, Baby Cop.”

“Hi hell…I’ve got someone coming to you.”

Since this is mostly a female audiance, you may enjoy this how-to video about being the perfect boyfriend.

And if you are feeling brave, incredibly bored, or are simply curious about why my comments are always off kilter, and why I’m such a weirdo, (I know you wonder some times Linda) here is a video I made which will help you understand. It is titled “A cure for that stupid song stuck in your head”, and is the only thing I’ve ever created which didn’t suck ass.

Ah god, that Flight of the Concords song is the sole reason I started watching that so. I STILL laugh every time I see it and now my husband and I frequently say things like “Teambuilding Exercise 1999 t-shirt”

THIS. My husband made me watch it this morning, and it is the greatest thing I have ever seen in the history of things.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V_l63p4CBWc

Ballet ninjas! Billowing chiffon! Dancing football players! And then the choir boys with glowing orbs instead of eyes….and then the one kind of flies….HEE. And then! The dancing tarzan-men! Plus the guys with the S&M gear. Whew.

Good stuff, that.

My fave at the moment is “The Man Cold”. Quote from the paramedic. “He doesn’t jsut have a cold. He’s got a Mancold. You women just don’t think….” Show it JB so he knows what he looks like when he’s “suffering”

Because I’m an ass, I haven’t really watched anything all that funny on the internet lately…I don’t think…

For movies I highly recommend Chan-wook Park. I think it was you who watched the 3 Extremes movie? Right? One of those were his. Plus he has a whole revenge trilogy, although they’re really individual movies and if you haven’t seen them I think you would probably enjoy them a lot. They’re Oldboy, Sympathy for Mr. Vengeance and Sympathy for Ms. Vengeance.
