What am I doing with a blog?

Awww…heck. I dunno.

quirky is in the eye of the beholder July 31, 2007

I have this quirk.

If you know me in real life, the singular construction ‘this quirk’ in the sentence above is kinda funny.

When I am newly alone…or not so newly alone, maybe ‘oldly’ alone, too…I can’t go to sleep unless there’s something on. Like, lights or radio…but preferably tv. Since I’ve moved into my new place, I’ve slept twice in my bed forsaking the comfort of a brand new mattress and bedclothes to stretch out on the couch under an old scruffy blanket with my feet hanging off the end (or, if I’ve been forward thinking enough that night, I will have put a chair at the end so that my feet don’t dangle).

Anyway…so, because of this I’ve been buying cheap dvds at every block buster I’ve come across…mostly the $6 ones. Since today is payday, I bought myself a few vids: The Godfather II, Solondz’s Palindromes, Bright Young Things (Stephen Fry’s directing debut), and Rushmore.

Speaking of Jason Schwartzman…what exactly was wrong with I (heart) Huckabees? I really enjoyed it.

Smacking my lips on the way home, excited to start watching one of these new DVDs (watching = have it play in the background while I putter around and try to get some stuff done) I read the back of Rushmore. “The best American comedy since Annie Hall.” – Premier Magazine

So, Annie Hall is in the DVD player now. What? It’s been almost two weeks since I’ve watched it.

Himbly’s friday/saturday youtube romp

Filed under: misc,youtube — himbly @ 11:00 am

Ahh..well rested. To finish off the youtube romp from yesterday here’s one that I can’t get out of my head. Made funnier because that’s actually Carol Channing’s voice:

Was out for dinner a few nights ago when this one came into the conversation. An oldie, and I’ve put it up before, I think…but it’s a-goodie:


annnd…one more Family guy to round it all up for this week. Since we’re doing a, mostly, geek fest here…I thought the first one with Chester Cheetah was appropriate.


Himbly’s friday night youtube romp July 27, 2007

Hey y’all…

there will be a friday night youtube romp…but on saturday. I’ve not slept at all well this week for varying reasons; none of which are serious…mostly trivial and stupid…but all leading to friday night being a christ-I-can-only-watch-DVDs night. This coupled with the pain of crushing on a brilliant, handsome and gay man has put me out for the night. He’ll never know the gentle touch of Himbly, but you can watch him here and imagine he loves me back:


I was gonna start the romp with these anyway. More tomorrow!


UPDATE: Just fascinated with the April Fool’s video, I found some interesting information here:

The clip finds Wainwright waking up one morning with some of opera’s greatest heroines: Cho-Cho-San (“Madame Butterfly”), Carmen (“Carmen”), Mimi (“La Boheme”), Tosca (“Tosca”) and Gilda (“Rigoletto”). The sextet gather round the piano for a moment of music before heading off to the local diner for breakfast. … Of course, Carmen is not the only diva to die in “April Fools,” despite Wainwright’s brave efforts to stave off the inevitable: Mimi succumbs to consumption, Tosca hurls herself off a bridge, Cho-Cho-San commits ritual suicide, and Gilda sacrifices herself to a band of thugs.

Rufus Wainwright. After tonight there’s nothing left to say about his incredible performance.

Sometimes you try. Sometimes you try to explain that you…as a woman…as an intelligent woman who lives in a free society…as a woman who has as many goals, aspirations and plans as any man…you call yourself a feminist because there were women (feminists) before you who carved out your path. And they were mavericks who did not have an easy go of it and deserve that respect. And still, whether everyone admits it or not, women are typically not as free as men are socially or economically. You try to explain that when you talk about feminism, you’re talking about your very life and the right to govern the choices you make and to be judged by your merits and weaknesses instead of superficial attributes (ie. tits). And you wonder why that is so hard to understand.

Then you see something like this.

Yeah. First, it annoyed me. Then I laughed…’cause…whatever.
