Both piglets are sitting behind me giving me the “WTF DUDE, BEDTIME” look, so I will just leave you with this as I head off to spoon the PUPPEHS:
The videos are not unrelated. It’s been a good night, as I watched a couple West Wing episodes, got some shit off my chest, and I think I taught Rosie how to play catch.
Night folks. Stay classy.
You ain’t dead yet, Cole. Slog on through like the rest of us.
Lost my dad when I was 21 – he was 52.
We fought like honey badgers when I was a kid – never did learn how much he had learned in seven years.
~25 years on, still miss the old man.
But you’re still here, to the benefit of hundreds.
Wow..i remember listening to The Wall and hearing ‘Good-bye Blue Sky’ while watching the late 2010 returns come in. it was weird because it was sickeningly fitting..
hi John, i hope you’ve got the whole 7 years of TWW, that shit got me through the Bush-years. i alternate between being a fanboy for Richard Shiff or Allison Janney (did you catch her in ‘The Help’?).
Schiff as Toby Ziegler in the 1st-season Christmas episode ‘In Excelsis Deo’ captured my heart. that ep was some of the best TV evah.
I work until 11pm and when I do have my two dogs (shared custody with ex-girlfriend) they give me the longing stares at 3am–Papa, when are we gonna go to bed?
I’m kinda glad I decided to start in on this whole endeavor…its pretty fun, thanks john
Here I am, awake at 1 am (my time) and the night crew all went to bed. I guess I probably should, too.
This song always cheers me up, though I’m terrible at deciphering lyrics, so don’t tell me if it’s actually about murder or something.
when even the bw preeks like milbank, ras, ralph phucking reed start concern-trolling for ya, you know you’re screwed in 2012.
You could have thrown this one into the song mix also, too.
Aging is weird Cole. And it just gets weirder and weirder and weirder.
Alright, now you’re freaking me out. Plus that “Oh Death” video gave me the willies.
Odie Hugh Manatee
I found a clip of the conservative dating lessons they were giving at CPAC. ;)
Point of info: Some of the “death” masks in the Oh Death video are actually life masks (Beethoven’s, for example — his death mask looks markedly different), which were often made in the 18th and early 19th centuries, until photography pretty much did away with the custom.
Also, Voltaire’s death mask looks suspiciously like a character from Outer Limits.
Johnny Cash – Hurt
Aside from the greatness of the song, the video is perhaps the finest work of art in a music video ever produced.
BTW, is there nothing your blogmistress can do about “soshulist” and other moderation-trippers? I know, FYWP and all, but is it really that rigid?
Thanks, John. Thanks for everything you do.
why is there no ABL on the frontpage?
why can’t we have nice things here too, like chirpstories and funnie tweets?
hei, ABL i’ll trade you EDK for more of your posts.
he can be your janissary for your Stealth War on White Ppl.
i’ll gladly do the operation myself……umm….if he needs it that is.
Don’t go anywhere without us, John. You’re a good guy, even if you do yell at us some, and we count on you sticking around.
