more random, less bossy


blogs news: anthony cartouche posted a video on his blog that got me a little teary-eyed, in the good way. you can read the comments to hear what i loved about it. or not. i feel less bossy the usual today. my mom's blog has some great pics and groundcat's testing out "twitter". sds's dog tim is featured her blog and i am in love with him.

when mediocre actors go bad: i had a huge crush on john corbett when he was on northern exposure. i knew he wasn't the best actor, but i liked his character and thought he was cute. i lost a little respect for him when he did "sex & the city". then i saw an interview with him & his "trial marriage wife" bo derek. huh? yeah, i don't know what that means either. over the weekend we were flipping channels and saw him in a trisha yearwood video! and not just "in" the video, but acting in it! he's supposed to be some kind of orchestra conductor who trisha gazes at while she sings. he plays the piano at one point, giving a "tortured genius" look. it was so bad it made me uncomfortable just watching it. i guess my crush was on "chris the dj" on northern exposure, and not the actual actor.

anxiety: i was listening to maxwell on the drive home yesterday, and he said something really interesting. he's been talking about being on wellbutrin and how it's helped him so much with anxiety and depression. he talked about coming home from work the night before and not having his house key out and ready. he said something like that would trigger huge anxiety in the past. and there are only 3 keys on his key ring! he was able to notice himself not freaking out and then realized how such little things used to send him into a panic.

it's just a good example for folks who don't understand anxiety disorders. a friend of mine recently made the point that, "the one thing that every single nervous person has in common, is that we want everything to always go perfectly and we become really distressed when things don't go perfectly!" and really, things usually turn out just fine, like 98% of the time! and even if they don't turn out ok, did all that worry help the situation? nope.

in other news: penn has been eliminated on that horrible "dancing with the stars" show. i am not surprised, and now can go back to avoiding that show like the plague.

new old song: i blogged about the song "float on" last week after hearing it on the bob & tom radio show. they played a new bizarre song the other day called "timothy". you can hear the song on youtube, just ignore the crappy video. the song was written by the guy who wrote the pina colada song and is about 3 guys trapped in a collapsed mine who resort to cannibalism!

and finally: i caught a few minutes of the rock hall inductions. iggy pop doing madonna songs to be exact. it was.....bizarre. i am adding a pic from the event to illustrate that iggy pop is made of beef jerky and madonna has the scariest arms ever.

Yes Iggy is very sinewy looking, Madonnas arm looks like it was run over with a steam roller and I think she looks real mean and bossy(which I believe she is) and Justin is "real fine"

You cannot steal my bit about Iggy Pop being made out of beek jerky, I forbid! I demand a credit or I'll send Jeff Conaway over.

My friend Kari Murphy actually made out with Iggy Pop once. I asked her if he was saltier than average and she just blinked at me.
I saw him upclose at CBGB's outside the bathroom in 1992. He is really tan and scary like a Milk Dud even in the wintertime...

this is honestly where my "it's fine" response comes from. it's like a mantra...and it works!

also, someone once said about iggy pop (and it's always stuck with me) 'you'd think with all the money he has, he'd be able to buy skin that fits' ha!!

Well, here's to SDS for being the first person I know to say that Iggy Pop is made of beef jerky, and here's to GG for spreading the word! LOL... That's really one of the most insanely true things I've heard in my life. Remember when Iggy tried doing a stage dive in Columbus, but instead of catching him, the crowd parted and let him hit the floor?! God that's awful... for everyone involved.

Bad thgs happen in Columbus, but somebody has to live there...

what if jeff conaway and iggy pop became friends? that would make a great reality show! and it could be filmed in columbus!!!!

SDS said...

The Venezuelans have a boiled beef dish that would go with that show perfectly; Ir's called Ropa Vieja. Old clothes.

Note to self: never drink an entire bottle of Two-Buck Chuck on vacation and post on a friend's blog!
