I survive! Woohoo! Anne of Cleves
You’re Henry VIII’s fourth wife, but your marriage was annulled. You outlived the rest of Henry’s wives (good for you!).
Oooh, I got Redford! :D
::SIGH:: I needed this today. Thank you.
Of course, #11 shows that the state of Wisconsin is basically a bar.
Mike Nichols and Elaine May are right up there with Del Close in influence on improv and American comedy. Seriously, do yourself a favor and look up Nichols and May’s routines from the 50s and 60s on YouTube. And every film I’ve seen of Nichols I love. He was a giant of American entertainment.
That’s me in the corner That’s me in the black… hole Turnin’ to spaghetti
Family too far away, having Thanksgiving with pals this year, so no chores, no long drives in the snow, no leftovers. Cards Against Humanity and booze, for which I definitely am thankful. “Another mug of mulled wine? Don’t mind if I do!”
I bought one of those a couple of years ago, and lemme tell ya, it is FANTASTIC.
Goude’s also the guy who did the famous cover of Grace Jones’ Island Life album back in the 1970s. No one’s body can contort the way he made Grace look. If you Google the image for it, there are some sites that show how he was able to do that in the days before Photoshop.
Aw, #7 is dear little Wasabi-chan. RIP, little girl.
Who do these tactics work on? Piss on this guy - and don’t give him a visa. If any man even looks like he tried to lay so much as a finger on my neck in this way, then he’s basically asking me to knee him in the nuts, isn’t he?
“When you wake up and realize you still have a few more hours to sleep.” BEST. Feeling. EVAAAAR!!! Well, OK, 2nd best.
Oh, how terrible. May they rest in peace, and that Mr. Picco will be able to find peace in the days to come.
I don’t notice the smell from a Xerox or copier, but I do miss the smell of freshly mimeographed spelling and math tests off the machine, and the ink would still be wet for a few. The kids in my 2nd grade class would almost come to blows when it came time for our teacher to pick one of us to help her run them off.
You got: You are definitely Canadian! Well, I was born in Buffalo. So close, and yet… But I grew up watching Readalong, The Polka Dot Door, Wayne and Shuster, the original Degrassi Junior High, You Can’t Do That on Television, SCTV, and Kids in the Hall, and I love poutine, so can I emigrate, please? Thank you.
There are much better pictures out there of Franz Lizst, even as a middle-aged man. The photo here makes it look like he had a huge nose when he didn’t. In any event, there was a reason aside from superb music that he was so beloved; he was a well-known hottie in his day and ladies swooned for him. A decent bio-pic starring Hiddles would not be amiss, film industry, HINT-HINT! And I don’t mean remaking Lisztomania.
When I was 7 and came to realize that I and my family were poor, it was very lucky that I chanced upon The Velvet Room by Zilpha Snyder at a school book sale for very cheap, like a quarter or something. Bless this lady, because she helped me see through her book that I didn’t have to fantasize to escape my then-reality, but I had the agency and capacity to do what I could to create a different reality and build on it to move forward. I lost the book at 9 when we moved house. Lo, these many years later, I found a copy of the 1966 edition of the book at a thrift shop, the same edition that I’d had as a child. I bought it, re-read it and it’s still terrific. I don’t intend to lose this copy! Ms. Snyder just died rather recently, at 96. RIP, Zilpha, and thank you.
He’s really good!
I can think of the 3 places where I had the best burgers (in the order they came to mind): 1. Dotty Dumpling’s Dowry in Madison, Wisconsin 2. A hotel (i.e. bar) between Dubbo and Lightning Ridge, NSW, Australia, but it was so long ago, I can’t remember the name of the place. 3. Harlem Shake in NYC
14-17 year olds can’t work 10 hour days, and they have to have a teacher or some sort of supervision on set, and that teacher/sitter has to be paid. Plus, while there are definitely professional, hard working kids out there, can you imagine, they’re teenagers. And lots of kids in the business have stage parents, like Thora Birch’s dad and Macauley Culkin’s dad. Nobody wants to deal with that. It’s just easier on many levels to get someone who’s an adult for the job. Producers should hire ages 18 to 20 for teen roles. I’m sure there is no drought of actors that age.
Psst! Brits in NYC can get all these things at a shop; if not at Myers of Keswick (including proper bacon and Cumberland sausages!), then possibly at Butcher Block in Sunnyside, Queens. Fairway (the local upscale grocery chain) has a British foods section. It’s not comprehensive, but you can certainly get salad cream, Branston Pickle, HP Sauce, and Heinz Beans. Trader Joe’s sells perfectly fine crumpets. And The London Candy Company in the East Village sells all the chocolate from home that you’d possibly want. There are enough Brits (and Anglophiles) in the area that keep these places in business, so no worries! You’re welcome.
I had to read In Search of Lost Time TWICE, once for English class and once for French (where the title is À la recherche du temps perdu). And when I did, in English it was called Remembrance of Things Past. I may have to re-read it; when I was a teenager, I was bored by it and didn’t get anything out of it because I found it so meandering. Now I might get it.
Oh my lord, I’m the Killer.
He performs at UCB sometimes in NYC, and was on one of the main house improv teams before he was on The Office. He’s just as hilarious on stage.
Yeah, but this country is so big, the regions are different enough that they could split off and be their own countries, which explains actually rather a lot about us. American Nations: A History of the Eleven Rival Regional Cultures of North America is a book that gives a pretty good overview of things, if you’re interested.
#20 is Mr. Creosote! :D
“Let’s get Mikey… He won’t eat it. He hates everything.”
Dudes, no cheese curds? No weisswurst? NO CREAM PUFFS? You’ve done Wisconsin very poorly, I must say.
Buzzfeed, comin’ through with the fan service! ;)
Nope, I do not miss that 7:45 Biology section that was a mile away. Or when we had to get up really early to get on a bus to take us to the woods off campus for a literal field trip. :P
I prefer threading. But this was funny!
So you’re saying that, basically, it’s all just a bunch of wankers, then? Noted.
Where are the results for Eddie Murphy? He bloody well saved this show nearly all by himself back in 1981!
I snuck and read this book when I was 6. About half of it turned out to be wrong, but it was the 1969 edition, so… By the time we had sex ed in 7th grade, the girls’ basketball coach just showed us a bunch of Coronet-era filmstrips which we girls giggled through, especially the menstrual cycle one. We did not have sex ed with the boys. They sat through it with the boys’ football coach.
What a cutie-kitty-pie!
Things Fall Apart. Ack. Even in an AP class with context provided by the teacher, discussions were rough going because the other kids thought that, somehow, I at age 16 living in the Midwestern US of the late 20th century, must understand the Igbo culture and how it changed in the face of the colonialism of 100 years prior. Sure, just like Jung and the collective unconscious, and shit. As if no European cultures ever experienced incursions by other Europeans, so gosh, they couldn’t relate at all to what was happening in the book! Maybe someone got it when they saw Braveheart, but I doubt it.
