RANDOM UNCONNECTED THOUGHTS

Yesterday was a very strange day. I actually forgot that Top Model and Project Runway were on. Luckily I turned on the TV at 9:03 so I didn’t miss much Project Runway but Top Model is a mystery. No worries. That show blows anyway. I must say I am a little bummed that Rami “made it” to Bryant Park. Really, are there avid watchers of the show that don’t know that the top five actually showed at Fashion Week? Did I think Rami’s collection was better than Chris’s? Sure, because it was but that doesn’t mean I wanted him to win. Since Christian “overwhelmingly won the fan favorite,” I think Jillian is a shoe in for winning the show. They won’t let Christian win everything and Jillian’s collection is awesome. Still, the show has surprised me before and anything could happen next week.

I think this Huey Lewis thing is actually working. I keep seeing him pop up everywhere. It could be because I’m looking but I don’t think so. I think that something is actually happening with it. This morning there was a casual mention of Huey in the Red Eye. As half of the world has seen, Huey was featured in Kimmel’s “I’m Fucking Ben Affleck” video. This can’t be all about coincidences. It’s like that thing The Secret that some people believe in. Maybe it’s real.

I have had urges to sing more Talking Heads at karaoke. Since I failed so miserably last time I attempted one of their songs I have no idea where this urge came from. Regardless, I was listening to Stop Making Sense and couldn’t help but picture myself taking on “Once In A Lifetime” with the chorus sung by my little sister while we were both doing David Byrne moves from the video. Man would it ever be a disaster. Same as it ever was.

1. So messed up I want you here/ In my room I want you here/ Now we’re gonna be face to face/ And I’ll lay right down in my favorite place. I Wanna To Be Your Dog, Iggy Pop. Identified by Chatty Knitter

2. I’m coming up man-sized/ Skinned alive/ I want to fit/ I’ve got to get/ Man-sized

3. Close my eyes/ feel me now/ I don’t know how you could not love me now

4. Now Peter Piper picked peppers/ But Run rapped rhymes/ Humpty Dumpty fell down/ That’s his hard time. Peter Piper, Run DMC, Identified by Monica

5. Come down off your throne/ And leave your body lone/ Somebody must change/ You are the reason I’ve been waiting oh so long/ Somebody holds the key. Can't Find My Way Home, Blind Faith. Identified by Dad

#1 is "I Wanna Be Your Dog" by Iggy Pop and the Stooges

I don't ever want to hear the words "Talking Heads" and "Stop Making Sense" coming out of your mouth ever. again.

I haven't seen that video, but the "I'm Fucking Matt Damon" video was one of the funniest things I've seen lately.

I forgot about the I'm fucking Matt Damon video, I'll have to try to remember to see it and now have to try to see the Ben Affleck one. I've heard the Matt one is absolutely hilarious.

I was watching Dogma the other day and when it got to the scene of those two in the bus I decided to put in Good Will Hunting instead. Although you really can't compare the two movies I couldn't help it and decided Good Will is just such a better movie I decided to go with it. Although I did finish Dogma last night. I really do like Matt in Dogma, I just want to pinch his cheeks.

Dad- Given you comment I am going to guess it was you but I probably would have guessed Mom if given the choice. Then again, I would have guessed Mom for the Eurythmics too.

Chatty Knitter- Come on, you know you love that album and that trip was a fantastic wonderful time!

Monica- Maybe next weekend it won't be a wintry mix. I hate those.

Citizen of The World- This one is better, and not just because of Huey.

Katrina- I'll have to say I prefer Dogma to Good Will Hunting. I don't think I have ever liked Matt Damon more and Affleck was only better in Dazed and Confused.
