So, I'm listening to music to get a "Connor Mix" made and posted, and while listening to music, I must have accidentally dragged two folders over instead of the one, because the Pee Wee's Playhouse theme song comes on, which leads me to download the Danny Elfman soundtrack to Pee Wee's Big Adventure, one of the best comedy movies of all time. (Shhhhh! I'm listening to reason!) From there I get to New Order (I know. It makes no sense.) which brings me to The Cure, and I'm grooving in my office, then Monty Python "Brave Sir Robin" pops on, and I think about the absolute hilarity of "That's...enough singing for now, lads," and how much I love that British men call young boys/subordinates "lads" which leads to the Chris Elliot movie "Cabin Boy" (I think only my sister Beth and I watched that one...) in which David Letterman is a merchant chomping on a cigar, and asks Chris if he's one of those "fancy lads."

And I really, really wish Connor's story arc wasn't so damn serious, because "All Things Dull And Ugly" is such a perfect (albeit snarky) song for his time with Holtz and the training of how all things horrible in their lives is a result of Angelus' evil. And I'm looking up Rube Goldberg machines and singing the "Breakfast Machine" song from Pee Wee's Big Adventure.

And writing a story about the Hall of Justice as a corporation with boring meetings about stock buy-ins.

This has been a look into the mind of Laura, brought to you by the letters O, M and G. (I should be put down, I think.)

Hee. I *loved* 'Cabin Boy' :)

WHEEE!! "Eat your fishstick kitties!"

Your brain is the best brain ever. There should be a movie "Being Stoney" but instead of winding up on the Jersey parkway, you end up in a Texas bar.

*taps barkeep on the shoulder, makes a circle with index finger in the air* Shooters on me!

Oh, and instead of the long, painful drop onto the roadside, you'll land on a barstool with padded cowhide.

Malkovich? Bweeeee!

padding is good. (Checks my rear.)

A mix!
A mix!
My firstborn for a mix!

Soooooooooon! Most likely up on Monday. There's a few histories of -

Okay, I'm just going to sound lame. ANYWAY: Monday. :D

It's like you're unraveling a big cable-knit sweater, that someone keeps knitting, and knitting, and knitting, and knitting!
Jun. 16th, 2006 05:55 pm (UTC)
This is why I love you.

(And I'm totally doing the paranoid laughing/rocking)

I'm a loner, Dottie. A rebel. You don't want to get mixed up with a guy like me.

Is there something you'd like to share with the rest of us, Amazing Larry?

Also, I want a nap. Meh.
Jun. 16th, 2006 05:59 pm (UTC)
I want a Breakfast Machine to make me pancakes and bacon in a smiley face.


So take a nap! Throw a jacket over yourself and say you're doing another magic act, and this is your disappearing trick. :D
Jun. 16th, 2006 06:01 pm (UTC)
And Mr. T cereal! That really existed, right?

Put Dottie back on! *harths Speck*

Hahaha, I will try this! I wish I had those menus that fold out, and I could stand them around myself. Or, er, a screen, since that would be easier and an adult version of what I'm talking about.
Jun. 16th, 2006 06:20 pm (UTC)
YES!! As did C3P0 cereal. Hahahaha!! Like corn pops, but shaped in T's, if I remember correctly...

Au Revoir, Simone.

"Mr. Herman? Paging Mr. Herman. You have a telephone call, sir." *eyes camera shiftily*

Or, if you close your eyes at your desk, and someone wakes you up, sit up and say, "In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen."

I want to have your babies.

Isn't it so much fun to track the progess of thoughts? One minute, you're thinking about TPS reports, and the next you're pondering why Mr. Rogers always has to change his shoes.
Jun. 16th, 2006 05:58 pm (UTC)
Oh, and my babies are potty trained, so less stressful all around! *packs their bags*

"Did you get that memo on TPS reports and coversheets?"

"Yeah, I'm... I'm not going to work anymore."

And now I'm thinkin gof Apocolypse Now and I REALLY need to take my Ritalin. WOW. *cracks up*
Jun. 16th, 2006 06:20 pm (UTC)
Office Space to Apocalypse Now. You are a special lady, Stoney.

<-- with the glasses you despise.
Hahahaha, and the milk is all rotten and sour. Bwah! I love how Dave insists on calling Chris girl names. "Aw, Rachel." Or "Jennifer." That is never NOT gonna be funny to me.

One of my favorite parts of "Pee Wee's..." is him randomly coming across Twisted Sister making a video (and it's the only good song they ever made.)

I have needs. NEEDS!!!
Jun. 16th, 2006 06:44 pm (UTC)
I'm thinking my own personal culture is severly lacking in...some department. I've never seen a Pee Wee movie. I've never sat through anything Monty Python. And I have no idea what Cabin Boy is.

But I did used to watch Pee Wee's Playhouse, so thats a start right? Right? I'm not a total lost cause?
Jun. 16th, 2006 06:47 pm (UTC)
<-- so this icon is meaningless to you, huh? WOE!
Wait, I-

REALLY? Never anything Monty Python? Of any sort? That's what I cut my teeth on with humor - fortunately I had parents/family with good humor appreciation. ANd "Pee Wee's Big Adventure" is fantastic! If you liked his children's show, you'll LOVE the movie!!

Re: <-- so this icon is meaningless to you, huh? WOE!
It's becoming more and more apparant that I need some education in this department.

And nope never sat through anything Monty. I'm guessing maybe I should?

Heeeeee!! I JUST had the following conversation with Mr. S, and was talking about heavy metal-type songs (for the Connor mix) because "kids today don't have really good angry music anymore. What with their iPods and their Big Macs..." <-- say in crotchety old man voice.

I'm heading out to buy Pee Wee on DVD because my kids NEED THAT! One of my favorite bits from the Simpsons, after Marge tells the kids no more cartoons and Lisa - with all sincerity - replies, "but where will we develop our sense of irony?"
Jun. 16th, 2006 08:47 pm (UTC)
That's ok. It was an "I don't wanna be here!" day at work for me so I took extra Ritalin. That balances things out, right?

I have a Faith mix and a Buffy mix. Did you do any of the other characters/pairings? If so, which of my body parts would you like in trade for it?
Jun. 16th, 2006 09:07 pm (UTC)
Oh man Cabin Boy is a classic. "Would you like to buy a monkey?" It's one of Boyd's favorite movies.
PeeWee's Big Adventure is one of my top 20 comedic films. Fuck, Jan Hooks kills me.

Tina: This is one of my favorite parts of the tour. Say hello to our residents, Pedro and Inez. Pedro is working on an "adobe." Can you say that with me? Adobe
Inez is holding a clay pot, of which she seems to be very proud. She has decorated it with lots of paint and glaze.

I don't know why. I laugh hysterically even when I think of this scene.

:goes back to lurking about waiting for a Conner music cd download::

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
