lights out

so, i loved that cities around the country turned their lights out last night from 8 - 9pm. I was at Manuel's and they did turn the "lights" out, but the tv's and neon beer signs were still on. But still....i guess it's part of a bigger picture.
My question is WHY not, as long as they did this big push for this one night, WHY not go ahead and propose this as a weekly thing???! So dumb to make it just the one night, as a symbolic gesture. Do it every saturday and/or sunday night!

i mean--right?

Being Clean

via christa t at 'what's the story, morning glory?'

he is so weird!!! in a good way.

she also has lots of info on some realllllly cool sounding british shows that i need to look up.

the bather/interviewer, Craig Bierko, if i'm not mistaken, is in the tv show Unhitched, or something like that, i don't have time/energy to look that up, but i also believe that is a Farrely Bros. endeavor for TV. ALL baseless information, only believed to be true. but i think i'm right. i watched one episode, and laughed a couple times, mostly at this Craig Bierko guy.

Something has always given me the impression...

...that my death will somehow involve an owl, in particular, a barn owl.

...or owlssss.

i must make amends for the sappy old person coldplay video

If you haven't watched it yet, before watching this, please go down two posts, and watch it.

THEN, come back and clean the palette with this f-ing hilarious version of the same song.
at the same time, please enjoy Chris Martin's version of "Tea for the Tillerman," Cat Stevens' theme song for Extras.

Coldplay Chris is very adorable, but goddamn, ricky gervais at the same time is gracious, making others he's performing with look good, and yet leaves everyone seeming like they have half of a personality and half his talent.

to "moisten dry cookies" just add water. gah.

hopefully i've just added much more reason for dry-cookie-having-people to turn up on this blog.

now for the good one:
Here's the search result page itself.
hopefully that'll work.

It originates in ---- EGYPT, and they were searching for "moisten teens."
good god.

"That's Haaaard."

Got this in an email from IMAGE about tha Atlanta Film Festival which takes place April 10-19, 2008. It's a trailer for a film called Young @Heart.

That's uplifting, sure.
Now, here's a clip of those whipper snappers doing their version of "Fix You" by Coldplay.
Sorta like Johnny Cash and "Hurt." Sorta kinda probly.

Holy Shit! i wanna cry so hard that i barf!

Latest Interesting search engine results for the ole Moisten Manapkin

"how to become a pole dancer"

"download Test Tube Teens from the Year 2000 "

an image result for a really creepy furries picture:

"mary kraft"

ANOTHER "Applebee's Tavern Chips Recipe"



while interesting, this is no where near as impressive as the google search referrals for this vegan cooking blog called "Yeah, That Vegan Shit." On that link she not only lists the google searches, but makes a disgusting poem out of them.

It's a pretty good blog. The girl has a good sense of humor, and the food on there looks awesome, though i've only actually made a
couple things, finger cookies being one of them.

Plug'n it up!

Have i mentioned this?

Jay's "ThePlug" is back.

Go visit and look at stuff.
His Gush Party site is still up and running, too.

I hear he's gonna publish a second edition of his Plug Book. And that the binding won't have staples this time. Well, well, well, somebody's movin on up. If he owned a dry cleaning business, there would be absolutely no difference between he and lady awesome and george and weezie jefferson.

Absolutely none at all.

David Mamet explains:

"Why I Am No Longer a ‘Brain-Dead Liberal’"

What do you think?

(that link was working sporadically, probably too busy at the time i posted it, as it'd just been talked about on npr, so try back later if not working).

rick 'n matt

this post is decidedly more interesting than that last one.
well, sort of.
This is from a ricky gervais newsletter.

Ricky Gervais:
This Side of the Truth
"Ricky has started a blog following his recent trip to America scouting for locations for his new film This Side of the Truth.
Replete with video entries, he documents the all-important creation of a good first impression on the production staff."
weird he's co-writing and co-directing with Matt Robinson instead of Stephen Merchant.
here's the plot outline:
A comedy set in a world where no one has ever lied, until a writer seizes the opportunity for personal gain.""

New Heroes Of Comedy
"If you missed the Channel 4 programme "New Heroes Of Comedy" about Ricky the other week it's surfaced on You Tube for you to watch in multiple bites.
The show features friends and comedy greats variously lauding Ricky for his comedic output and criticising him for being fat and annoying."

pip 'n sac

Scroobius Pip was on NPR today.

Heard about him via Clunky.

i don't really have anything more to say, i just thought it a little odd to hear them on npr. then again, it's not so crazy.

now you're just being ridiculous

seems like anytime i didn't know what a weird, cooky word was on, or in a book i was reading, when i looked it up the definition was "trinket; bauble."

Here are some such words:
bagatelle, bibelot, curio, doodad*, gadget, gewgaw*, gimcrack*, trifle, whatnot*, juju, madstone, phylactery, knickknack, dingbat, frippery, furbelow, fandangle*, frippery, bijou, and frou-frou. (* denotes informal/slang)

I think it's safe to say if you are looking for a word like trinket or bauble, and you don't want to use either of those two exact words, then you can pretty much make up anything that you want to.

e.g., "The appraiser determined the family jewels to be, in fact, hick-dickery-cock-in-jaws, rather than diamonds."

or, "One time, my cat knocked a rillybetibby off my dresser."

or [archaic] "That sure is a nice crockinhimmel."

would you like to make up sentences that use the word, but don't show any context at all?
i love this game so much. i will work it into a film someday. maybe it will be the entire premise. don't tell anyone. it's a secret.
Once in high school, i turned in a pop quiz with this word used in a sentence:
"My cat is very affable."
the teacher was cool, and thought it was funny.
it was half of a joke, i also didn't know the complete definition of the word, just the general jist. i don't think he gave me credit.. ....

I like John Lewis

Dear Ms. Kraft:

Thank you for taking the time to express your concerns regarding the protection of animal rights, specifically in regards to H.R. 1726, the Farm Animal Stewardship Purchasing Act. I appreciate hearing your views on this important issue.

I have always been an advocate for animal rights. Throughout my years in public service I have continuously supported legislation that protects animals from undue harm. I support a wide variety of measures to protect animals, including, H.R. 3219, the Dog Fighting Prohibition Act, H.R. 297, which protects horses from slaughter, H.R. 1558, which prohibits Internet remote hunting (what the hell is Internet remote hunting?!?), and H.R. 1688, which prohibits "canned hunting," or the shooting of captive, tame animals within enclosed areas, among other bills. Therefore, I have signed on as a co-sponsor for the Farm Animal Stewardship Purchasing Act.

The welfare and humane treatment of all animals will continue to be important to me. Rest assured that I will continue to support legislation to protect animals from mistreatment, cruelty, and neglect.

Again, I appreciate your taking the time to write me on this issue and hope you will continue to contact me on issues of concern to you. Also, please visit my web site at for more information.
