2008-04-04T18:14:00.000-04:00

Mers: Oh! Did I EVER love "Don't Eat the Pictures"! It was like The Mixed Up Files of Ms. Basil E. Frankwiler, one of my favorite YA novels of all time. I think though, after you bring it up, that I must see it again. Especially for the andro orphan, which I probs missed/subconsciously yearned for at the time.

latane_blue: Thanks!!! Yeah! Rove on!

mpod:

2008-04-04T02:07:00.000-04:00

Wow. A complete deconstruction of The Muppets Take Manhattan may be pretty much the most amazing thing I have ever seen. I myself am not looking forward to the same post-college combination of excitement and dysphoria... but hey, if it ends in a musical it can't all be that bad, right?



Congrats on winning! Rove the fuck on is right.

"Where does today meet yesterday?"

Don't Eat the Pictures. Perhaps, a slightly more obscure muppet movie. If you haven't seen it... well, you must. Head explosion, promise. Combines several of your aforementioned theories:

1) Muppets (obviously)
2-4) An androgynous, bowl-cut-sporting orphan (Egyptian prince Sahu is pretty glammed up and rockin' a jet black chin

anonymous: I have a very rudimentary grasp of English. My cyber-personality has claimed Hebrew fluency and a flair for Espanol, but she says a lot of crazy things.

oo lynnie oo: I admit I am scared of The Dark Crystal. These things scarred me as a child, but again, I was easily scarred. Although perhaps I could've been won over by nifty crystal balls.

lozo:

2008-04-03T01:11:00.000-04:00

You completely made me doubt myself. I called my mom to get to the bottom of it, and after a long discussion, and having to re-watch some things on youtube... you and I were both wrong.
It was "Christmas Eve On Sesame Street" where Big Bird ends up by himself on the roof of the apartment in the snow waiting for Santa.
No one knows where he is, they're all freaked out and it's

and also, my number two feeling is ocasionally ringo starr too. my parents took me to his concert when i was 6...i had an interesting childhood.

2008-04-02T22:48:00.000-04:00

well i must have had my childhood in a bomb shelter?...big bird made films? i feel i have missed out.
big bird is a legend with myself and friends well not realy a legend it is what we call overly sized ladies i dont mean heavy ladies we are not heavyist just ladies who look like they have giant-itis? its an added bonus when they talk crap realy fast then they get upgraded to become a whatnip

Re: Andrea McArdle - I'm so glad someone besides myself and my best friend know the extent of her awesomeness. Edd's too. That man likes to live it up!

I totes had a love for orphaned characters, still do. Annie, Oliver Twist, Madeline, you name it, I was obsessed with it at some point in my childhood.

"uhh" is the first part of my word veri! =]

2008-04-02T22:00:00.000-04:00

um insane. andrea seems crazy but in a good way. that was the best response ever. umm btw lozo workout does not start until 15 and blow out has not been on for like 2 years. but you can switch over to mtv for the best of the real world awards bash. i do hope they show the slap heard round the world...aka seattle.

2008-04-02T21:53:00.000-04:00

ADORABLE response, rieseycakes.

now if you'll excuse me, i have to get back to watching Bravo. what's better? blow out or work out? i know i can't choose!

2008-04-02T21:49:00.000-04:00

Ohhh The Labyrinth. Ohhh David Bowie...i wanted so badly to have one of his nifty crystal balls. And by balls i mean...

Good stuff...that plus movies such as The Never Ending Story, Wizard of Oz, Willy Wonka, The Dark Crystal (am i alone here?)..etc. I watched many a fucked up movie in my childhood...it's nice though because i don't think i can be completely creeped out due to the fact

2008-04-02T21:28:00.000-04:00

democracy isn't real- love this
what languages are you fluent in?
you have a cyber personality? if so that's a disappointment

2008-04-02T21:15:00.000-04:00

hello karen sosa: firstly, did i ever see Follow that Bird? Only a million times! The part when Big Bird is blue and singing always brings a tear to my eye. I think it touched on a lot of grown up issues. I could probably cite that movie scene-by-scene, far better than I could remember Big Bird Goes to China.

hello razia: I would like to see your Mom's dog. Tinkerbell is in a

2008-04-02T20:58:00.000-04:00

playing The Boxcar Children was once my very phuckin favourite thing to do. that was my world!

oh, and Big Bird should give acting classes. like for lots of money, because the dude can act!

2008-04-02T20:37:00.000-04:00

i loved this. so great and so many memories. i had the shitiest day so you made me happy.

i learned about being an orphan from annie. annie also taught me that big musical numbers change lives, having carol burnett as your "owner" is amazing and that having a sugar daddy buy you the world is all that matters...i miss those days.

tinkerbell is really improving on her chinese. did

2008-04-02T20:04:00.000-04:00

Good to see the Muppets on there.
There was another one - Big Bird Gets Lost. I supposedly neeever made it to the end of that one. As soon as Big Bird got lost I'd start bawling and make my mom turn it off. He, of course, was found and lessons were learned.
This maaay be why I bail in the middle of relationships.
I think a therapist would have something to say.

I finally

2008-04-02T19:50:00.000-04:00

ooh! i remember number 3!
i smoked some drugs last night and wouldn't stop talking about Fantasia. i think that is was created by and for someone on hallucinogens. i remember they made us watch that a lot in elementary school, and all the other disney movies we were subjected to had a plot that i can recall. but with fantasia all i remember is like a red violet portal and unicorns and shit. i

2008-04-02T19:40:00.000-04:00

okay. so i wasn't able to read the whole post because i have yet to see muppets take manhattan. i know. but i didn't want to read your spoilers. because you've convinced me to track it down and watch the damn thing. i think i stopped at kermit goes to the top of a building, and picked back up at y'all winning the uh huh her? video schmideo contest.

so...(that was a long disclaimer, damn)

2008-04-02T16:45:00.000-04:00

That flying begins with a pull, proceeds with a push, and breaks into smooth blue trailsmoke, a momentary impact on the sky.

Oh, lovely riese. I heart that tug too.

2008-04-02T12:36:00.000-04:00

ok, i know, i think, that you're going to china[?]. what i don't know, is why/when/how. is this a blogger exchange program? do we get a chinese girl? i am so confused.

here's the survey that i didn't fill out 3 days ago and post in the appropriate comment box:

2008-04-02T10:37:00.000-04:00

There's a great exhibit called "The Agency of the Orphan" by Anna Craycroft about the phenomenon of identification with the orphan in entertainment:

http://www.artinfo.com/galleryguide/exhibition/19276/5830/115209/anna-craycroft-the-agency-of-the-/

So extensive and good!

Congrats again on the win!!

Psyched about the reading,

2008-04-02T10:07:00.000-04:00

I'm confused. Not everyone wanted to disappear into a book or live in the Muppets Take Manhattan when they were little? I sometimes spend a good deal of time trying to separate what is reality and what I think reality should be based on what I have read and seen.
And. . . when I meet people named Phil I am still tempted to introduce my friends Bill, Gil, and Jill- which interestingly

2008-04-02T09:36:00.000-04:00

i can't believe how similar i am in most of my tastes to a lesbian girl from michigan. although while we both clearly love asian girls, i am not willing to go to china to get them.
