Let's Be Specific About Stuff

Yeah I’m posting a slo-mo baby video… watch these little dudes and dudettes eat their slo-mo lemons and make their slo-mo scrunchy faces and then judge.

It’s probably a day or two from bein’ a beer or body spray commercial but ‘til then I’ll keep noddin’ my head to this short sweet rocker.

Dunno how this got past me but, these dudes put on a hell of a show.

1,2,3… push our pelvis to me!

Jon Benjamin… Nintendo graphics…. silly, immediately dated technical words…. Jon Benjamin…. Jello Salad…

I love everything about this!

Huzzah, and there was much rejoicing…. until about 7:30 pm.

Ah…. Ah…. Ah-Chunes!

It’s been a rough winter.

So, for now, this abandoned Pellie - Bigbird - being taught to fly with a GoPro on his nose is the best I’ve got for a heart song.

All you Kanye West haters.

Everyone who can’t seem to separate who this hard to take, jutted-out jaw of a person is… from what he makes; try to imagine that someone else - someone you respect - said this in response to an interviewer’s question;

INTERVIEWER (Director Steve McQueen): ….there’s really no amount of money that could make you more influential than you are now. So my question is: What are you going to do with all of the influence that you have right now?

WEST: Well, influence isn’t my definition of success-it’s a by-product of my creativity. I just want to create more. I would be fine with making less money. I actually spend the majority of my money attempting to create more things. Not buying things or solidifying myself or trying to make my house bigger, or trying to show people how many Louis Vuitton bags I can get, or buying my way to a good seat at the table. My definition of success, again, is getting my ideas out there.

Now maybe that’s an answer honed by a cat that spends many of his waking hours interviewing himself in every mirrored surface he finds but… come on, that’s a pretty fuckin’ good answer.

Take a bow, you magnificent mental patient!

Enigma’s Return To Innocence Redux

Weird Year, Good Music (Part 2,013)

Usually I just offer up my end of the year list as tribute to Listophilis, the ancient god of organizing stuff into lists, and possibly syphilis?

Just throw that shit into the mouth of the disinterested volcano that is internet and sleep better that night.

This year;  sure I’m doin’ all that but also - more so - I’m sending this half way around the world to someone.

It’s been a weird year but here’s a big ol’ dump of good feeling… in 5 minute bursts.

….. and there’s more where that came from.

Does this bit of coolness really need anyone else sticking it up online?

Does anyone who doesn’t know and love Dan Harmon not know about this too?

Does everyone love rhetorical questions as much I do?

Don’t answer that.. just watch the show, it’s fun.
