All I can say about my day today is ‘You are not the gold emboss of me!”

You don’t have to wear every overly elaborate craft project you make! But if you do go this route, I feel like you should at least put on some face paint or a sticker of Sleeping Beauty on your cheek. And consider being able to stick your hands through behind the castle as a fireworks show and have a Tinkerbell finger puppet on. This will give you something to do other than standing around smiling uncomfortably when your child is filming you.

They should have had ATLAS pick out the font, maybe it would have been more readable!

Today I finally installed a new reader to replace Google Reader. Change is difficult!

Thanks for the heads up–I wanted to see this but now I won’t! Will have to wait and get my fix of lingering shots of well oiled pectoral muscles from Fast & Furious 6.

Totally agree with this! Hard to believe someone in America Photoshopped that image together as their job! I hope they were thinking, I need a new job because this is bullshit.

Exposure therapy via overseas travel, great plan!

Sometimes I feel like I have to apologize for finding the word cunt to be offensive, sexist, reductive, and demeaning. I just can’t find it funny, earthy, edgy or “just a word.” Sorry I’m a killjoy, comedians!

 +2Posted on Feb 22nd, 2013 | re: How To Do The Actual Harlem Shake (12 comments)

I feel like they did teach us white people the Harlem Shake on an episode of So You Think You Can Dance a few seasons ago. They are always showcasing local dance styles on that show during the auditions.

Are we blaming the meme for appropriating black culture? It doesn’t seem to me like the meme has anything to do with black culture. White people are allowed to perpetuate silly internet memes, right? It’s definitely within white culture to post ridiculous videos on YouTube.

I feel like the song is more the culprit. Except that the lyrics say “Do the Harlem Shake,” which is in some ways celebrating the dance style. It’s not saying “Do the Marin Shake” or something. Although a white guy did write/mix it, right? But he didn’t know people would then not follow his instructions to do the Harlem Shake. Because I’m sure people don’t dance anything besides the Electric Slide to the Electric Slide, or the Macarena to the Macarena, so it would be hard to anticipate this weird meme developing where people put Storm Trooper helmets on their heads or writhe around in sleeping bags instead of doing the Harlem Shake.

Although isn’t the fact that white people in the videos don’t do the Harlem Shake less of an appropriation of black culture? Or is that where the trivialization comes in?

I’ve seen plenty of multiracial versions of the Harlem Shake (although the majority seem to be bored white dudes) does that make a difference?

One thing is for sure, I watched way too many versions of the Harlem Shake meme last weekend, because I kind of couldn’t believe it was a real thing!

My favorite part of Fast Five (besides all of it) is how they try to pretend Vin Diesel is the same height as The Rock. Hahaha, Fast Five! I’m sure this new one will be awesome as well, but I seriously wish they had called it Fast Six Fast Furious. P.s. – Tokyo Drift is worth watching you would be surprised by how many problems can be solved via tokyo drifting.

Oh this is where I have gone wrong in life, not having an important shoe! I just checked and the boots I’m wearing are Fergalicious by Fergie.

Merry Photoshop from the Photoshops!

I’ve actually been liking some episodes of The Mindy Project, but this week’s was terrible! I thought it could be a dream sequence it was so bad and not with the sense making. And they character-assassinated Josh, who was my favorite! Why, so she could continue to have “romantic tension” with the grumpy short dude from her office? JOSH WAS THE BEST! (character on the show) Lame, Mindy Project, I’m done defending you!

 +5Posted on Dec 6th, 2012 | re: Don't Forget, There Are A Lot Of Great Christmas Gifts On Etsy (36 comments)

I found this sentence on Etsy: “I’m a huge fan of NBC’s Parks and Recreation, I’m also a fan of DC’s Justice League so it seemed only natural to combine the two.”

I felt so bad for Angela. :( Oscar is a jerk and I can’t believe he tried to partially blame her for marrying the senator in the first place, as if that excuses his actions at all.

This post needs more pictures of The Miz!

 +1Posted on Oct 8th, 2012 | re: Ohio State Marching Band Expose Themselves As NERDS! (16 comments)

The Cal Band did something very similar in 2007: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E2UaVcZPsYU. Usually the Cal Band uses the Ohio State Band for “inspiration,” but this time it was the other way around!

 +9Posted on Oct 5th, 2012 | re: What Should The Hungry Hungry Hippos Movie Be About? (29 comments)

There is a lottery system where young hungry hungry hippos from different colored districts have to go into a hungry hungry hippo battle arena and fight other young hungry hungry hippos in order to survive! And the winner gets all the marbles for his or her district for the year. And it is called Hungry Hungry Hippo Games.

If it doesn’t have an elevator w/ talking skeleton, moving sidewalks, and doom buggies, I’m not interested. You can’t fool me with your Haunted Mansion music over shots of modern staircases!

Romney is SO proud of being born white in Michigan. Because it’s such an achievement!

 +4Posted on Aug 22nd, 2012 | re: Here Are Some Afternoon Links! (8 comments)

The Parks & Rec link really illustrates how Kelly has elevated link introduction on this site–to the point where I always read through the afternoon link entries even if I don’t always click any links. For example, from HyperVocal, to introduce a puppy shaming meme link: “Take a look at these pouty pups posing with signs that admit their bad behavior.” So boring and straightforward!

“The film is about a man crippled by the mundanity of his life.”

I had something to funny say about that but it vanished during my rage blackout.

Ever since I watched Fireproof, I wanted to save my marriage by reading a book like the guy in that movie did. Except I’ve never seen Fireproof. And I’m not married.

I could tell you, haha, but then I’d have to you know, hahaha, turn you into that guy from Inception, ha, you know with the tattoos and he couldn’t remember anything?

Lacks the focus of Stolen Bikes. Yeah, I said it!
