Why So Serious?


Facing Reality

December 30, 2007

Reality CheckNot too long ago I was told that spring semester starts on January 7th. Does that make me happy?

No.

I thought class started on January 14th, which gave me 7 more days of care free happy-go-lucky playtime. But now, due to the vanisihing 7 days I will be forced to start looking for a job and facing reality that much sooner. All I have to say is LAME.


Those Aren’t Spirit Fingers. . .

What does one get when one takes equal parts Edward Scissorhands and theatrical dance? One gets a shit ton of awesome eye candy, that’s what.

A man by the name of Matthew Bourne has created a “ballet” based on Tim Burton’s fairy tale “Edward Scissorhands” and the results are very cool. I was able to see it via the internet marvel that is Youtube.

My favorite clip is that of a dream dance sequence where Edward has hands and his topiary creations are able to dance around. Sound crazy? It is, but watch it anyway.


Need A Little Christmas

December 24, 2007

It’s Christmas Eve, yet for some reason it doesn’t really even feel like Christmas right now so I thought I’d post a song that almost always triggers some strong emotions in me. The song, "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," sung by Judy Garland is one of the best Christmas songs ever. If this doesn’t put me (and you) in the holiday spirit then nothing will.

Much Love
-Ben

P.S. – Leave me comments! I’d like to know if ANYONE reads these.


2007 In Review

December 22, 2007

This isn’t incredibly original of me, but after seeing it I couldn’t think of a better and more entertaining way of summing up the fascinating year that was 2007.

My favorite part is definitely the “la la la la” of the angels at a minute and four seconds in . . . and don’t forget Sanjaya.


Christmasode

December 20, 2007

I support the writers’ strike and I’m all for them getting more money, but they’re ruining my holiday.Photobucket  One of the staples in a complete holiday season is the holiday episode that every one of our beloved television sitcoms produces every year.  But now, with the writers’ strike I have been robbed of the holiday joy that seeing Dwight Schrute in elf ears gives me and my soul has been blackened due to not being able to see Betty Suarez in a beautiful holiday outfit.  But my cheer has not been fully smothered for my guardian angel, Tina Fey, has given me a seasonal episode of 30 Rock.  So this one is for you Ms. Tina Fey, you have saved my Christmas.


Creepy Kid from the Past

December 18, 2007

This child, heretofore known as ham girl, creeps me out. I’m not quite sure why, I think it’s because I cannot for the life of me figure out what emotion her face is trying so desperately to convey. Is it excitement, anger, surprise, joy, horror? Or maybe her pigtails are just pulled too tight.
