I miss Life Savers Holes. I really do.
I miss Life Savers Holes. I really do.
Most excruciating book I have ever read. I still have nightmares about it’s incessant character development.
My mother-in-law bought my husband and I this one. We thought it was a joke and when we tried to give away as a white elephant gift, she got really offended! It lights up, plays music and spins. Classy.
My husband and I watch the show, and so do my parents. So every Monday morning my mother calls me and tries to get her questions answered about the show. She always misses about half of the major plot points and never remembers peoples names. Theon is “that kidnapped guy on the cross” Daenerys is “blonde dragon lady” and Cerse is “Joffrey’s mom”. She really has trouble with how everyone is related and can’t remember when she’s seen them in previous episodes. She really only knows Tyrion, Tywen, Joffrey, and for some reason, Roz.
The Black Cauldron scared the crap out of me as a kid. Haven’t seen it since. I loved Oliver and Company. Even had the soundtrack.
I definitely do not support the Boy Scouts, and if I had a son, I would not allow him to join. But, they are a private organization, and can make their own rules and regulations. So thanks for no longer excluding the boys who want to belong.
#2 and #4 FTW! I own the DVD sets and would very much like more…much much more.
Labour Left Briefing announces their new album, Curse of the Drinking Classes. I am pretty sure this is an alt-polka electro band…from Taiwan.
I highly recommend checking out the auction site. You can buy a filing cabinet, a bone saw or an entire Air Force Base…your call.
Also Pan’s Labyrinth, Click and What Dreams May Come.
Do they still make Hubba Bubba Blueberry? If so…mail me some.
I don’t care that #4 is actually ducklings…it’s my favorite!
Such a bunch of jaded cynics. Sometimes things are just lovely, no matter if they are photoshopped or staged. Get past it. Just enjoy the view.
Doesn’t matter…still gorgeous.
My personal favorites:
Bon Jovi, Wanted Dead or Alive: “I’ve seen a million faces, and I’ve rocked them all.” Not too shabby.
Black Sabbath, War Pigs: “Generals gathered in their masses, just like witches at black masses.” Good rhyming, Ozzy. And any lyrics by Tori Amos. Once she’s not talking about rape, I have no idea what she means. Still like her, just can’t comprehend her.
#6 is the reason super glue was invented, as minor injury liquid sutures for battlefield use. Also, #12 was my fathers answer for everything. And it usually worked!
I have to include Nowhere, Trainspotting and Basketball Diaries.
Idiots. I’m so glad that the world has to have the same tastes as you.
How about Turning Japanese by the Vapors, She-Bop by Cyndi Lauper, or I Touch Roses by Book of Love? Pretty good songs about self-“exploration”.
If only the real world operated in this fashion. My organization is paved with good intentions, but goes to hell in about a week. Nice dream though.
BRING THIS SHOW BACK!
I loved it.
Fluevogs = awesome.
Always has, always will.
This is how easy it should be. I wish it could be that simple for everyone struggling with others potential reactions. This father is obviously a perceptive and understanding human, and loves his child no matter what, like all parents should.
I had #1, #2, and #18. Pretty sure all of these years later I could dig up a random Little People figurine in a drawer somewhere. My dog person ended up with no spots after I was done with him.
I lived in one of the test markets (Denver). During high school, our school newspaper had OK Soda stickers in it that were subsequently plastered everywhere. We would occasionally wake up to a six-pack of it on our porches. It was awesome. The flavor was like a peach-vanilla cola. I loved it.
When I was in the eighth grade, our math teacher invited all of her students to join her family at the airport to greet her second adopted baby to the US. When the gate door opened, the whole area was on pins and needles to see the beautiful new toddler from Korea. We all made her a quilt and held signs to welcome her. I still feel so privileged to have been a witness to a family being made.
I still kind of dress like Lydia Deetz, mixed with some Rayanne Graff for good measure.
Any band who makes an album is hoping that said album will sell copies. If it does sell, and sells well, that makes the band profitable and successful. Thus makes them make more albums that will hopefully do better than the former. If this is selling out, then I have been just calling it “capitalism”. The only musicians who do it “for the love” are local musicians who have other jobs. Being popular doesn’t mean you can’t still like them.
Jeff Buckley. That’s all I ever needed to hear. The album still tears me up from beginning to end every time I listen to it.
Is it strange that these foods cause no shock or horror to me? They all seem pretty reasonable. I’m just glad there is a place to buy a variety of inexpensive foods for those who want more than a sack of flour for their hard-earned and lonesome dollars.
I am glad that #7 solidified my hatred of American Idol. Also, I am sure to be disappointed by #3, as anything other that Loveless will be meh.
Welcome back to eighth grade. Creepy.
I have never seen most of these people. Apparently I didn’t watch enough Dawson’s Creek or (insert crappy show here).
If you ever have the chance to see Captured! by Robots live, DO IT! It is a concert experience like no other.
She’s a football. Trust me, I would know.
The best part of #3 is the accompanying drawing of said deer on the back wall.
Welcome to Kid Skiing 101. I’m just impressed he had poles! That’s awfully advanced! Looks exactly like how I learned to ski, and almost every other kid did too.
Lighten up people. Sometimes animals are fat because their people are fat. Sometimes their people dress them up. Sometimes they sit in weird positions. Jeez.
SERIOUSLY? Middlemarch was the most arduous and tediously boring book I have ever read. It is 900 pages long and only gets mildly interesting around page 750. My favorite books I read this year are The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern, The Poisoner’s Handbook by Deborah Blum and Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
