and the devil said, would you like to dance with me? we're doing the cosmic slop

I know it's been awhile and the simple reason for that is because I've had nothing to say. The long reason for that is that the sun has emerged and everyday I spend all my time lying out on the grass, biking through the forest and also doing not-spring-related things.
I have no big post theme, but have collected some miscellaneous thoughts and opinions for your enjoyment.

  • You know what scenario I am fully sick and tired of seeing in YA novels? When the narrator has no idea that her close male friend is into her. Prime example: When Georgia Nicholson can't realize that Dave the Laugh (only one of the greatest fictional human beings to ever exist) is madly in love with her.
    What it usually looks like:
    I asked Tom for his advice on my situation with Blake. A funny look crossed his face and he told me he had heard some rather convincing rumours that Blake is extravagantly homosexual, not to mention he's really bad at lacrosse. I don't know what's gotten into Tom lately - he's been so moody. I bet it has something to do with him suddenly and unexpectedly dumping his girlfriend right around the time we started hanging out. I should try to get them back together.
    Yes, teen authors, I understand that there is such a thing as foreshadowing, and that you need to prepare us readers mentally or we will FALL APART with shock when the protagonist's closest male friend reveals himself to be into her. But come on! How often does this scenario happen in real life? We ladies have something called "women's intuition" - no matter how much false modesty we pile on a situation, we tend to suspect it deep down when a guy is into us. In fact, more realistic would be when we oversuspect and get the idea a guy friend is into us when he's not.
    Basically, it's played-out, unrealistic and boring. Enough!

  • Lately I've been having a number non-sexual 30 Rock-themed fantasies. They range from getting a piggyback from Grizz to hiring the entire cast to be locked in a castle with me while I trip on mushrooms so hopefully when I transcend consciousness enough I'll start actually feeling like I'm on the show because judging from DVD extras, a lot of them seem a lot like their characters. Other fantasies include Jenna trying to teach me hip-hop dancing, making Tracy Jordan re-enact my favourite Busta Rhymes video and Jack Donaghy stroking my hair and telling me stories while I'm falling asleep.


  • Flight of the Conchords...where have you been all my life?
  • I'm going to Mission this weekend and I shall photograph over a dozen new items for my online store. So best be ready!

  • Happy Birthday, Eddie Hazel! In the mood for a good old fashioned mindblowing sesh? Dig!










  • In other Funkadelic-related news, I just found this video of them crazying (theres no verb for it really) around a park to the tune of "Cosmic Slop". It was the most joyous sight I'd ever seen. Ever. My spirits were instantly lifted. I couldn't decide which man I was in love with most. Seriously, in the first few seconds when they come bursting out of the darkness, energy on 100....I dare you not to get a little bit excited.

Great video...although I was worried/hoping about a loincloth malfuntion!

GraceFace said...

Ugh, I despise those teen novel best guy friend is secretly into you plots...


Even if that did actually HAPPEN to me, it's still overplayed!

Allison said...

Mmm, girl let me tell you about how much I love Flight of the Conchords... it's absolute perfection. My brother and I were longingggg for the new season all summer...we seriously weren't able to contain ourselves.
I loveee that video...seriously, it put me in a fabulous mood :)
Your comments are always amazing too - I love getting them and I am seriously so happy that we found each others blogs!

hahaha! I'm a pervert... I couldn't stop staring at their privates when they were running.. and then that made me completely not take the video seriously after that. lol
You should totally write a YA book... it would be hilarious.
Also... my next post will feature Joe.. looking remarkably like a character from Fat Albert. lol. Stay tuned!
:)

Being outside is better than the internet anyday.

I tried reading YA but I can't finish one book. The closest thing I came to is watching Gossip Girl, which I heard is better than the book anyways.

Flight of the Concords and 30Rock always cheer me up.

Kat said...

haha that is so true about the male friend thing! you are so right girls always suspect or oversuspect as you say!

Sister Libby said...

Cosmic slop is my favvvvorite. Radical video...

And I love Dave the Laugh too! I've been looking for a DtL my enitre life.

I'm your number 1 fan.

jayne said...

haha YA plotlines! you're so right, they are totally unrealistic. besides i would probably love it if my guy friend was in love with me, afterall, earlier this year i had a crush on a close friend and that crashed and burned haha, so I'd take that!

"Female intuition" - otherwise known as basic intelligence.

I fully understand the blogging hiatus thing. I myself have felt recently uninspired to pound on my keyboard. I'd much rather pound down a few twinkies of late... lol.

Loincloths are great aren't they? I should get one myself. I would probably look hot in one. All eyes would be set on my crotch.

I enjoy visiting my Molly love. When I stop by I feel nostalgic and at home. Love ya girly.

Besitos para siempre

Eddie said...

PS. Licking and slurping the great outdoors beats blogging any day. I can picture you jetting down that dirt road you posted. Beautiful...

Besitos

I love this post. I think you have the YA novel plot formula down to a tee. x

sophia said...

It's probably not smart to read Georgia out in public, because you laugh like every five seconds :)

Mission as in District as in San Francisco?
only one of my favorite places on the planet!!

blazedanielle said...

I love 30 Rock and Flight of the Conchords!! What a hilarious photo of them! Great post!! :)

Victoria C said...

Haha I totally agree with you about teen novels... but I'm almost not a teen any more so I probably shouldn't be reading them! haha xo

Flashes of Style said...

I LOVE flight of the concords!

WAT said...

BUSTA RHYMES IS AMAZING! His stage name is so appropriate right?

FUNKADELIC! I want some of what they were on!
