SOME STUFF THAT IS AMAZING
(before I post about Merlin tomorrow)One!
I watched the Women of SNL special and it was generally funny because they showed the best clips, but I think the thing that made me laugh the hardest was Amy Poehler's Sharon Osbourne impersonation.
Not because it was the best impersonation ever (though it was pretty amazing), it's because of the dog. She has this little Pomeranian she's holding and waving all over the place like it's a stuffed animal and shaking it, and that dog is totally nonplussed
. It's just looking calmly at the camera like "yes, and?" and she's SHAKING IT EVERYWHERE. I have no idea why I'm so entertained by this dog, but I watched the entire two hour special and that dog made me laugh harder than I've laughed in weeks. Even thinking about it makes me giggle. That dog! I can't. I can't even.
Is something wrong with me?Two!
According to some dude on Twitter
, Bradley James was gallivanting around LA this Halloween dressed up as a Ghostbuster.
This guy could be totally full of it, I don't know. And you know what, I don't care. It makes me love Bradley more than I ALREADY DID, regardless of if it's true or not. If it's true, that's amazing. If it's not true, I love the fact that Bradley is exactly the type of person I would believe would dress up as a Ghostbuster for Halloween, and that just makes him a special snowflake.
Oh, the limbs I would sacrifice for pictures of this.Three!
Some wrap-up from the Rally to Restore Sanity - if you haven't seen Jon Stewart's sincere closing remarks
, GO WATCH THEM RIGHT NOW. They are great and true and insightful. I mean, it's a little unfair to the extreme left, I think, since the extreme right is where you get people who are theological extremists and want to wage war on everyone and damn your rights to hell, and the worst the extreme left ever wants to do is tax you a lot and make you go through red tape. Oooh, scary. Also, the 100 greatest signs from the rally.
And seriously, they're GREAT.
Also, THIS IS YOUR REMINDER TO VOTE TOMORROW OR WE'RE NOT SPEAKING ANYMORE.Four!
You know who else is great? BENEDICT CUMBERBATCH. I mean, his name is already the greatest name in the history of names, but he's been doing some great stuff lately. Like this live chat he did for PBS
in which we learn he's amazing, adorable, hilarious, articulate, and oh, I love him. Also, there's these new pictures
. I can't tell if I'm terrified of him or vaguely attracted to him. EITHER WAY I LOVE HIM.Five!
I found a gerbil adoption agency in the next town over! They say they have new pups coming and should be ready by late November. I think I've decided on names, so it should be less than a month until you all are regaled with pictures and tales of Messrs. Gus and Baxter.Six!THIS DRESS IS SO FUCKING AMAZING I WANT TO DIE.
If only I had $150 to, you know, spend on a dress I don't need and have nowhere to wear.Edit, or Seven!
So sometimes while I'm winding down for bed I turn on the music video channel, which is doing a promo for Rock Band 3 that's a playlist full of featured songs. One of them is The Cure's Just Like Heaven, which in its original form I hate
, but it reminded me of this cover, which once again proves that a song can be a truly terrible thing, but almost any song can be saved by a skillful cover. God, I love this cover:
