Long time, no blog! Sorry about that. I came down with a nasty cold thing last weekend that’s still poking me in the ribs as I post, and the weekend before that, I honestly don’t remember. Life happened, probably.
Andy and I have done a couple things of note since my last blog – we went to see a live Rifftrax (creators of MST3K) simulcast of Manos: Hands of Fate at the local movie theater. If you ever get a chance to do something like this, I highly recommend it. I haven’t laughed that hard in a very long time. Here’s a little taste of what we saw:
We also got to check out some jazz at the Wadsworth Athenium. They had an interesting modern art exhibit of which I only enjoyed a couple pieces. The only really striking one was this cube of toothpicks using no adhesive. Whoa.
Last and most notably, we went to this place in Niantic called The Book Barn. They house over 500,000 used books under the many barn roofs on the property, each housing a different genre of used books. Most of them are $1. And on top of the cheeky, awesome atmosphere of the place, they also have gardens, cats and goats. Needless to say, I will be returning in the near future.
And now it’s time for another Sunday Sixah! You lucky dog, you.
The penguin publishing group is looking for a new and impressive member of their team in London to cheer up this here penguin. Had I the skills for the job and the drive to move across the pond, I’d be applying for the sheer creative awesome that is this website.
2) If you’ve ever owned a pet, this is a game you’ve probably played.
I don’t have baby fever yet, but if I did, I’d be going goo-goo-ga-ga over this seriously cute set of tiny human clothes.
4) When I die, I want to become a tree.
No, this isn’t hippie nonsense I’m spouting. I’ve honestly always thought I’d like to be buried at the foot of a tree (way cooler than a headstone) with a bench near by for my future kids and grandkids and great grandkids to sit and ponder on. But as it turns out, you can become a tree instead. Your ashes can help it grow. Can I be a ficus?
5) Bad Lip Reading of Twilight.
I realize this fad is probably long over with, and I don’t really have a leg to stand on having never read or season anything regarding Twilight, but still – watch and giggle.
I realize that for many of you, Somebody That I Used To Know is a long over played tune that you might not jump at the chance to hear again. But I urge you, if you enjoyed the song at all from the start, this video is worth watching.
Also, I’m going to see Gotye in two weeks with Marsha Bard!! Can’t wait.
Tune in next time – same Bat-time, same Bat-channel!
