It's not unusual for a Pee Wee Herman moment to happen daily in my house. I'm good with that. DID YOU HAVE SOMETHING YOU WANTED TO SHARE WITH THE REST OF US, AMAZING LARRY?? I digress. It's super windy and nasty out, and for those that don't know, the wind is my natural enemy. It's a hair thing, and a headache from the wind on my ears thing. And also that it's a total douchenozzle. If the wind were a person, it would totally be that jerk that punches you hard on that one tender spot on your arm, borrows money, then insults you in public. YOU WIN AGAIN, WIND, BUT NOT FOR ALWAYS.

This video is maybe the most hilarious thing I've seen in fourteen minutes. (What can i say, I have funny stuff happen all the time in my house.) The thing is, it is a SPOT ON parody of every single Wes Anderson movie, his preferred shots and cuts, and whoever that guy is doing Owen Wilson should get dinner bought for him, he's perfect.

I'm going back to watch the health care summit. Oh, I'm also not getting email notifications, so I'm not trying to be a jerk and not reply, I just don't know it's happening. Also, I'm watching the health care debate, so... I've got that on the table for now. Pretty exciting stuff. Also, I'm on a horse. (lol)

For us it's "Make me!" Pee Wee voice: "I don't make monkeys." We used to have Saturday pancake pajama breakfasts when Pee Wee was on the air.

*shakes fist at wind* I have to walk to the co-op for coffee and milk. Ick.

Oh, man, that video is spot on. We need to work on our Owen Wilson voice.

Isn't that video great? LOL at "I don't make monkeys, I train 'em!" I *LIKE* you. and "Why don't you take a picture, it'll last longer!" get tossed around, too.

STUPID WIND. I'm debating going to the market for some feta cheese. I might just sub with the goat cheese I already have. FEH to you wind, FEH.

I hope you stayed home. My hair was all in my mouth and nose and I had to go into three stores looking like I slept under a bridge and liked it there! Aaagh!

Inez appears to be holding a clay pot that she seems very proud of... Oh, Jan Hooks, I love you.

YAY FOR THE BISCUITS! Aren't they delish? I was very pleased, and mostly because of the ease in making them.

Wes Anderson
That was hilarious and completely brilliant.

I am not sure if you have seen this yet. I read it this morning and it made me think of the post you made the other day regarding the people who are always right and need to inform you.

Re: Wes Anderson
And the last shot of him shooting his web? LOL!!!

OH MY GOD, THAT IS HILARIOUS. Manspaliners. That's my new favorite thing. Thanks for the link!

Re: Wes Anderson
Goddamit, what is this Newspeak? Hate to be a mansplainer (talksplainer?), but this thing needs to be edited for those of us who are outside of this community.

Re: Wes Anderson
I'm very sorry about the tone. I just finished a very tiring, very late class about editing and I always had a very opinionated view on the way many feminist and cultural studies texts are written.

Basically, I believe that they are written in a needlesly hermetic language, which completely undermines their educational purpose. You cannot make me rethink my attitudes if I am too busy thinking about your language.

I understand and know too little about cinema to appreciate that clip! Also, no Pee Wee Herman in Poland. But all's well, because I can quote the Mathplanet show at you guys.

Oh, you didn't have a show about aliens who traveled to Earth in search of a code and solved mysteries using math? You poor, poor creatures...

That vid made my afternoon.

(Also I LOVE that Old Spice commercial. LOVE.)

I happen to like Wes Anderson (my husband loathes him), but oh yes, that was Wes all right.

Wes Anderson sounds like
He should make a boy-band called Wes-life. It would be mega ironic. (Gen Y guy here, don't ask me why I know that band reference... DON'T JUDGE ME!)

I got here via the Sparkledammerung and wanted to say that was bonza. That's an old Aussie word for "great". No actual Aussies use it much anymore so I try and maintain it.

This Wes Anderson parody is brilliant, it's like it really is a Wes Anderson film instead of a cheaply made parody made in somebody's backyard. The production quality of poking fun at Wes made me laugh more than even the Spider Man gags.

Re: Wes Anderson sounds like
Hello! And this parody makes me laugh so hard because it's just spot on! And considering that Bottle Rocket was a pretty cheap movie, I think it looks perfect. :D I think the slow turn as he delivers the Big Line in front of the fireplace is what cracks me up the hardest.

Welcome aboard!

Oh, man, I'm a suburban haus frau, so what I know about what the "kids" are doing for funtimes is limited to hanging at the mall? (Seeing as my "kid" is 12.) Er... Deep Ellum used to be cool? Idk.

Oh, LOL! "Spring Break Shenanigans" made me think of clubs, etc. of which I am clueless. Museums, however!! you MUST go to the Sculpture museum downtown. If y'all are near the trains, you can take that downtown and get dropped off one block away. The DMA (Dallas Museum of Art) is right next door and is pretty swell.

I do know that Barcadia on Henderson is in a cool neighborhood with loads of delicious eateries and bars.

If you want to see the cultural event site that put Dallas on the Map, that would be the 6th Floor Museum, where Oswald "shot" Kennedy. (There are all manner of theories about that, however.)

And if you want a brunch of awesome, go to Ozona on Greenville for their champagne/omlette brunch of decadence and awesomeness.

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.
