Two entries in a row omg
So this happened:


Meanwhile, here are the songs that get stuck in your head when you are sick in bed and helpless to do anything about it. Like too sick to even get on Twitter and rid yourself of whichever song by inflicting it on others. Yeah. It was pretty bad.

1) It must have been some foodie blog--no, it was the Castle Story app, I remember now, there was something about how your pig "dropped" bacon, like you were somehow farming bacon off this pig, and more rarely you might get a truffle, and one of the game characters said, "Yes, that's right--everyday I'm trufflin'," and then I died, I died all day a living death, reliving the solid year when my sister was obsessed with LMFAO, cursing Castle Story the whole way.

2) Then I remembered that time someone dubbed the Star Wars cantina music in over the video

and I felt better.

3) Then I got the Star Wars cantina music stuck in my head and I cursed every living thing.


5) This, which I associate with The Princess Bride, and not "Theme from The Karate Kid, Part II."

6) This, which is so charmingly, innocently '80s that I wish I could write a rom com that was nothing but 90 minutes of something this earnest.

7) Such hard. Much habit. Wow.

8) "Baa baa mouton noir, as-tu de la laine? Oui Monsieur, oui Monsieur, trois poches pleines!"

9) This, which is actually about drug addiction, but it was played five times an hour during Christmas season 1989, so that's what I associate it with (Christmas) (the '80s goes without saying). (Huh, apparently Jennifer Love Hewitt and Fergie are on background vocals.)

10) This, which is neither a ballad nor about Sleeping Beauty, but I enjoy Sophie B. Hawkins.

11) This, which is allowed to stay.

12) This, which for some reason, I believed (as a wee Cleo) was about a girl who got carried off by a tornado and that's why the guy was so sad. I'm watching it now though and wondering why he seems to identify Sara, Queen of Glamour Shots, with his mother going away...? Holy shit, there really is a tornado? Maybe his mom was legit carried off by one? And then Sara used to hang out in Mom's basket swing but now it's empty (again) because Sara realized Grace Slick was never dropping by so she peaced out?


13) "Everyone wants a Log! You're gonna love it, Log! Come on and get your Log! Everyone needs a Log! LOG LOG LOG LOG LOOOOOOOG"

Usually it was about this point that I would ask for more Aleve and pass out again.

Meanwhile, I am still mulling over what to do about the Dracula recaps, because I am straight-up loath to give up on them. I had a project I just finished out of SHEER GODDAMNED CUSSEDNESS, and on the whole, I liked it enough that I'd kind of like ~Finishing Things~ to be how I roll from now on. At the same time, I have learned--both from my own experience and the very, very painful experience of other people I know--that sometimes you have to know when to fold 'em. And somewhere between the two, I have to remind myself that this is the internet, where you can do just about anything any way you want to do it, and there's no reason I can't try to get this done by taking a completely different approach. I just don't know what that approach is yet--

OH! Official notice: For reasons just discussed, I will not be liveblogging the Golden Globes on Sunday. I'm thinking about doing sort of a judicious live-tweeting combined with collecting the best tweets I see and putting them together on Storify. I've done liveblogs of award shows since--Jesus, I don't know, 2001 or 2002? I feel like I need to move on from a format that exhaustive at this point, given the massive widespread availability of videos, recaps, tweets, other liveblogs, etc. I don't know--the way I look at it is, if I try less labor-intensive formats, maybe I'll be around more often. So we'll see.

Baa baa mouton noir

Not gonna lie, before I got to the next bit and actually recognized the song I was hearing this as a "Bad Romance" parody.

... well now I've got that stuck in my head.

New ways of posting? Well there's always minimalist/blank verse:

.... but it's only visually appealing. [small joke ... very small] I'm sure you will end up thinking of something that is very *you* - and thus perfect.

I'm one of the rare who enjoys NBC Dracula and even I don't think you should do the recaps. But if you still can't let it go, just do an overall season review after the season finale. Or should I say SERIES finale coz between the ratings and Jonathan Rhys Myers' (I never get anyone's names right) rumored antics, I don't think we'll see a second season.

Wait, there are antics? I didn't know there were antics.

Well, maybe 'antics' is an overstating it on my part. I'm sure he didn't mean to cause any problems. He was rumored to have a meltdown on set. He then sought treatment in London for a while, before returning to complete the rest of the shoot. NBC reportedly withheld his full salary until he could finish all 10 episodes.

It always takes me a second to remember which song is "Toy Soldiers" and which one is "My Name is Luka". I have no idea why, they don't even sound the same!!

To quote you (although I believe you were referring to Hannibal at the time), "You do you." It's always a pleasure seeing you around the Internet!

My current inescapable earworm is that damn tricky trick song they made up for the Jan. 5 episode of The Good Wife. That is some A+ earworm construction.

Oh man, you're not kidding. That was total ear torture.

You could always do it this way, not even watch the episode, and just sort of guess from the screencaps.


I feel you. I decided it would be a super idea to recap Downton Abbey this season over on my blog. By the time I finished the first one (something like 8800 words) two other episodes had aired. Glad you're back though!

Fnarr. I would have loved to back the Kickstarter, but I'm glad it's funded. I just don't check LJ often enough, and I don't do Twitter personally (although I'm on it for work and my friend's band...neither of which are really appropriate for interacting with you). But congrats! And I hope you feel better by now, given the belatedness of my comment. <3

Just as Lois implied I'm shocked that a person able to earn $7362 in 1 month on the internet . Go now >>>>>> ᵂᵂᵂ.fiscalpen.Ⅽᴼᴹ <<<<<<
