Links, info, and a POLL!

Yesterday was a no good, terrible, horrible day (partly) but today is decidedly better and brighter. Our plans to hit the aquarium via train and walking of four blocks has been curtailed by the OMG heat, so it's arts and crafts day, meaning I can play here while they cut and paste and add glittah (Little Shop of Horrors, anyone?) First links!

  • This is possibly the most disturbing and HILARIOUS video I've come across. (It's disturbing because I have serious bug fear.) But funny. It's FUNNY!! And there are bugs. Just watch the damn thing. IT IS WORKSAFE.

  • This is possibly the funniest Seussianesque slashy poetry ever written about a pirate and Commodore (ex, weren't you paying attention?) Norrington ever. SO. CLEVER. And naughty. (Thanks to cherusha for pointing the way.)

  • THIS is my new blog for gardening. I hope to make it a comprehensive site for learning about how to, etc. PLEASE: do not link back to THIS LJ. I don't need gardening people coming across (heh) my naughty posts, fics, etc. Call me EmGee (oh, I am CLEHVAH. M G, or master gardener.) I've made an LJ for it as well, and hopefully will create an RSS feed to update the LJ, so you'll get a notice if you friend it. POINT OF INTEREST: every weekend will be a Q&A session. Comment with questions, concerns, etc., and I will answer to the best of my abilities - or send you to someone who can help.

Now, POLL!! This is to make me laugh (unless you have the answers, in which case, I will be so very very happy.)
Okay, so this morning was definitely an Old SKool Hip Hop kind of morning. Run DMC, Ladies Love Cool James, etc. And I realize that for the most part on my flist, I am very, very alone with my love for hip hop. This is mostly what I think of as the golden age: 1984 -1992. Ya Bobby Browns. Ya Fresh Prince era. Heh. All write in, because that will generate the funniest answers. (Dave? I'm expecting you to ace this, my Hebrew brothah.)

(And if anyone wants any of these songs, I have them all in mp3 format.)

Poll #767733 Not for those who think Barney Rubble can rap.

You're as soft as a pillow and I'm:

Motown Philly, back again! Doing:

Bamboo earrings:

Fear of:

Who's house?

The turntables may wobble, but:

God damn that DJ:

I am Wonder Mike, and I'd like:

1, 2, 3 and to tha 4:

Eh, Esse: Don't you know I'm:

I like the girls with the boom, I once got busy in:

Straight outta:

My, my, my music hits me/ so hard, makes me say:

Lodi Dodi, we like to party, we don't cause trouble and:

I'm the d, a, double d, y , m, a, c:

Poll #767734 Part Two: Ticky Boxes!

Jam Master:




wearin' white Sassons with the looks that kill, I'm making love in the back of my

fish tank of krill
Coupe deVille
White Lightenin' still
store front's till

I don't mean to brag, I don't mean to boast, but we're like

a Christmas rib roast
hot butter on breakfast toast
the boys that are the most
something that ends in -ost

Stoney, do you:

REALLY have this kind of free time??
go to a special doctor that has electrodes?
know that I am a secret hip hop afficianando?
realize that I read this whole thing and didn't do it?

I (the poll taker) am:

allergic to fun
allergic to YOU
get a rash from hip-hop
wonder how people can't love the "Humpty Dance"
this many. *holds up fingers*

I plan on:

steering clear of you at WriterCon
reading reports after WC about how strange you are
dancing on tables with you
learning how to pop/lock so we can be the KEWLEST
not taking this poll. .....CRAP.

[eta]As expected, dlgood is in the lead with the most correct answers. annabelle528 takes the lead! WOOT!

WOW. The blog looks A-mazing!
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:01 pm (UTC)
Yeah? Man, those are the FREE components. I wish you could do the equivalent of an LJ cut, so it doesn't look so cluttered, but neither TypePad nor Blogger seem to offer that type of feature...

(thanks.) And also: thanks for your list of recs this morning! The current 'splosion in our fandom has left me a bit nervous about clicking on just anything. :D
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:03 pm (UTC)
I'm talking about the content, man. The content! You totally deserve a cookie.

It is my duty to spread the Norrington/Sparrington love, yes.
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:06 pm (UTC)
hahahaha, and your answers up there cracked me up. (Did we call it with people seeing the fabulousness that is James, or WHAT?)
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:08 pm (UTC)
Dude, I dreamt Sparrington last night. And though I don't remember most of it, it did have Jack and Norrington all tied up together.

*obsesses and is obsessed omg*
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:11 pm (UTC)
Heeeeeeeeee!! (And dude, the Gillette fanciers are PISSED and I'm all *yawn* whatever.)
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:17 pm (UTC)
All the more run DMC Norrington for us!

Seriously, yo. It's not like Gillette was the only person to get booted. Anamaria, anyone?
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:21 pm (UTC)
Right, right, and while I loooooooved Tia Dalma (that actress NAILED the accent, hello, KENDRA.), although the characterization was a bit racist (and how cool would it be to find out that Anamaria is her DAUGHTER, and DAVY JONES' daughter????) she's not Anamaria.
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:27 pm (UTC)
Anamaria effing kicked! And is my kind of pirate (Anamaria > Liz, all I'm sayin'). She's retired and living on a pile of gold somewhere, yes. Your theory would be awesome if it happened. And yes, Naomi Harris is love!
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:08 pm (UTC)
I love these polls!
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:10 pm (UTC)
I bet! you OWN them, sistah girl. *fisthearts* Let's Roger Rabbit. *boogies*
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:23 pm (UTC)
The Humpty Dance is your chance to do the hump
Do the Humpty Hump come on and do the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump just watch me do the Humpty Hump
Do ya know what I'm doin doin the Humpty Hump
Do the Humpty Hump do the Humpty Hump
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:25 pm (UTC)
I mean, SERIOUSLY!! It's SO MUCH FUN!! (And what's great is when you figure out what up and coming rapper was a back-up dancer for Digital Underground, heeeee!)

New Edition used to OWN MY SOUL. I'm not ashamed to admit that. Boyz2Men, ABC, BBD. (Never trust a big butt that smiles!)
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:47 pm (UTC)
Dude I swear I'm right about that eazy e thing. Even though I could only remember the bad-words part of the next lyric. *must now go dig out her brother's CDs she inherited before he went to the Holy Land and check*
Jul. 12th, 2006 05:59 pm (UTC)
Ha, yes, your NWA knowledge is still good!

(Oh, man, you should play some filthy, dirty rap music when he gets home to watch his eye twitch! Heh.)
Jul. 12th, 2006 06:03 pm (UTC)
Oh, and heh. Rappers don't seem to be concerned with proper grammar/spelling. So... WHO'S HOUSE?

(I'm going to upload all of these songs later, btw. Wheee!)
Jul. 12th, 2006 06:18 pm (UTC)
...I am so white. *woe*

(HA YAY. Dude, these all take me back to my fourth grade talent show. A bunch of the boys from our small-town version of The Projects break-danced [broke-danced?] to The Humpty Dance.)
Jul. 12th, 2006 06:25 pm (UTC)
Ahahahaha! FOURTH GRADE?? That song is FILTHY!

Actual moments in my youth:
* 7th grade history class (Texas) rapped to "Rapping Duke", but changed it to the tale of The Alamo for the end of the year project. Actually sewed coordinating jackets for my "back up dancers."
* 8th grade speech tournament, rapped "Roxanne, Roxanne" for a poetry reading competition. Soundly lost.
* 9th grade: learn how to pop/lock, Roger Rabbit, etc. Think I look AWESOME on the dance floor. Not sure if I do, but I THINK IT.
* 11th grade in the hallway. One of the freaks (heavy metal dudes) whispered that he heard I was into rap, and could I sneak him some music without telling any one. hahahaha!
* current: this series of quizes.
Jul. 12th, 2006 06:42 pm (UTC)
DUDE THAT SPEECH TOURNAMENT. You should've won. I sort of want to become a teacher just so I can be sponsor for geek squads like forensics teams and Quiz Bowl teams, and so I can mess with kids' heads.

Yeah, fourth grade. *grins*
Jul. 12th, 2006 06:48 pm (UTC)
WOW. That's like all of the "drill team" dance squad type things in Utah for six year olds where they dress like hookers, wear makeup, and do routines to Britney SPears songs or lascivious dance-pop, but it's ADORABLE! Because they're six.


Also, because it should be said often: DUMBLEDORE FUCKS NO AMERICANS.
Jul. 12th, 2006 07:08 pm (UTC)

Er. Ew. I remember those girls. More, I remember the mothers acting as coaches.

Jul. 12th, 2006 06:33 pm (UTC)
Heh. First in the lead cause I answered first. Heh.
Jul. 12th, 2006 06:46 pm (UTC)
Well, you hung on to that title for a looooong time. (Annabelle has just barely squeaked past you, homes.)

Links to music (and answers) up later, if you're interested! (I love that one respondant corrected the grammar on one of the rap lyrics. Heee! That's like offering a free ethics/morality seminar to SS commanders, or something less offensive, SHEESH, LAURA.)
Jul. 12th, 2006 07:16 pm (UTC)
Jul. 12th, 2006 07:23 pm (UTC)
I believe that someone once sang, "It's hip to be square."

Although he was horribly, horribly wrong, Laura.
Jul. 12th, 2006 07:47 pm (UTC)
And I could tell you that THAT was Huey Lewis.

Just you wait. I'll make a poll of EASY LISTENING hits and then you'll see. YOU'LL ALL SEE.
Jul. 12th, 2006 08:31 pm (UTC)
You're allergic to yourself? That is 2 sad!
Jul. 12th, 2006 08:57 pm (UTC)
It makes some activities incredibly uncomfortable.

*applies Benadryl in order to pull up socks* (And heh to using "2")

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.

Time Wot It Is
