Sigh. I Totally Fell For The Fearmongering

If you're thirsty, stop by.

Alligator and I completely safe. And now I have to Windex.

The worst of it.

Dang you, stupid Fearmongerers. I always fall for it.

Someone Put Time Into This

Someone put time into this, and I can't get it together to take a bag of old clothes to Housing Works.

This Seems Legit!

Why do I keep a yahoo address? For gems like this, sometimes.

I think it's the spelling of 'maintenance' in the FROM field that's my favorite. Either that or the signature that it's been scanned for viruses.

As American As Cherry Pie

Rest in Peace, Jani Lane. I *loved* Warrant in high school. I think I played this cassette out.

Mostly, it was the ballads.

Most interesting thing about his passing? Not that he was only 47 and it was probably alcohol-related, that part's just sad. It's this nugget from the NYT obit:

Mr. Lane was born John Kennedy Oswald on Feb. 1, 1964 in Akron, Ohio. (His parents named him after President John F. Kennedy, undeterred by the fact that they shared the last name of the suspect in the assassination, Lee Harvey Oswald.)

Really, Grey Lady? "the suspect in the assassination"? I guess some conspiracy theories go deep.

Rock on, Jani Lane. Rock on. Heaven isn't too far away.

But Aren't You Glad We Did?

One nice thing about getting older?

You can see long lost friends from all over the world on a Saturday afternoon, walk the Highline, then cramp yourself laughing at this line from a sitcom.

God Bless, America.

A McQueen Come True

So how did I spend my Summer Friday? Well, I spent about 90 minutes of it in line at the Met to see that Alexander McQueen exhibit people won't stop yapping about.

And? Despite the wait, I'm glad I went. Now, I'm not going to say that it was the best thing in the world, or even that it was worth the long line - but it was a good time. Pretty dresses on nice mannequins in a dark room.

This here was the most impressive thing - they had the dress on display and a higher quality version of this video. I mean, this is something.

Not only is it a great performance/fashion/piece (how many of those are there, really?), but the dang model doesn't fall over and barf when the painting is done! She's a superhero.

If you would like to recreate the experience of seeing the show, read this blog on your smart phone while boarding the A/C/E train at Port Authority during rush hour.

Oh? And here's the line on Saturday, which we did NOT wait in. Know who took this picture? Al Roker. America sure is something. Our credit rating gets down-graded, 000's of people wait in line to see dresses, and our national weatherman tweets this picture during his morning jog.

Anyway, after this I took a nice nap then went to that new Spanish restaurant down the street from me. Summer Friday, you're a good thing.

These Are Three Things

This is for those people that say this blog is just about kitties:

(really, it's genius. rub their furry underbellies!)

And this is for those just looking for gay unicorns:

And here's Shelley Winters in a giant novelty boxing glove.

Happy Summer Friday everyone!

Seeing Reflections On The Water (not lace nor leather)

So on Sunday I was doing what I do, trying to find an interesting cover of that best Bond song of the 90s, "Goldeneye." I found this.

Who is this man? Why is this man? Why are there less than 1000 views for this man? Why does he have 128 videos? Everything is wonderful.

God Bless, internet. Thank you.

Burger, She Wrote

I found this on the internet all by myself.

I want to go, to there.
