One for the cynics

Quite a love story.

Danny and Annie Perasa.

From NPR.

And like all love stories, it has a horrible, devastating, tragic, heartwrenching ending. Which still manages to uplift, somehow. Power of love?

You have to listen to the audio file, not just read the blurb.
You need to look through the photo gallery while you listen.

And don't blame me for you getting something in your eye. ...and JUST MAYbe...in your...heart. <3

My coworker sent me the same link today! It was, as my mom says, "truly, truly excellent," and very moving!

I hadn't cried that much since I saw Bill Macy play that handycapable door to door salesmen.

NPR is great and all, but do you know where I can get some GLUG.

GLUG? Googling gave me The UK's original Gay and Lesbian Scuba Club, Gauteng Linux User's Group, and a drink with rum, port wine, brandy, cinnamon sticks, orange peels and cardamom. ...??

Glug....is a squidbillys ref.
I thought you knew.
Im so juvenile.

That drink does sound tasty.Better than the nutty bouquet and slight hint of steering fluid found in Glug.

ooohhhhhh.
Well, no, I don't know. The episodes went by so quickly, and me with no tivo...I barely remember what they were about. Except the parts that I was actually in. Was glug in a scene with the gigantic lady at the dump?

Blogger Machinistscott said...

She made an appearance. She was just laying in the dump getting smashed on Glug and listening to “the phone book on tape” as read by Dan Halen. She didn’t speak.

No Tivo her either. Media Addition.

What part did you voice.

Are you the "front butted one".
If so, It was funny as hell. Great work.

yeah, that's the one. Thanks.
So I guess my character was drinking Glug? Damn, I'm slack. Guess I should know that stuff.

Blogger Machinistscott said...

No.
I shouldn't know that stuff.

Did you think the series was funny?

Blogger maryk said...

Yes, I did. Kinda dark. But funny. Looking forward to the next season, hope they still plan to use me.

I will keep my tentacles crossed for you. I thought it was very funny. I have a dark sense of humor. I’m also a so called "Yankee" transplanted in the deep south. I take shameful pleasure in seeing crude southern stereo types. does that make me a bad person?
Before you judge me,lets not forget your role in a film featuring Hitler.

I’m a newbie bloger. I work a sub-human shift, so I’m up odd hours, odd days. I have a small/new Blog. Stop by and scribble something down.
