[Feeling kinda |annoyed]

Okay, that is the stupidest slogan I've heard since ... well, the last time I've complained about a slogan, here.

But yes, I insist that pysical products I buy include ingredients.  I hate paying for empty boxes/bottles.

[Current Location |Croton on Hudson]

Trying to change my LJ profile's location info to Croton on Hudson, and it insists on interpreting it as Cornwall on Hudson.

Anyway, that's where I live these days. A nice little apartment.

I take it the duties are to let people come and lie on me.

And once they're good and comfortable, I whisper, "You should buy some of our stuff."

The Most Insidious Brainwashing [Nov. 7th, 2013|03:23 am]

That television ad which attempts to convince us that when some mentally challenged person reads off aloud some slogan from a billboard ad or a newspaper ad, it is acceptable for the person next to them to mumble, "Everybody knows that," and then hold still for a TOTAL LIE, as opposed to immediately punching the first person in the face.

It's a little song about stuff you encounter in dreams, and usually ONLY in dreams.

Find the BtVS reference!

Here are the lyrics:

If you're searching for it but forgot what it is
You just might be dreaming
If the walls won't stay put and something's amiss
You just might be dreaming
If you can’t find a private place to take a piss
You just might be dreaming

If you're at your hall locker back in your old school
With your hand on the combo, you feel like a fool
'Cuz you know you should know it. Your brain is so cruel
'Cuz really, you're just dreaming

If you're watching a vid and now you're inside it
Then you might be dreaming
If, instead of walking, you find yourself gliding
Then you might be dreaming
If you can't decide if you're riding or driving
You just might be dreaming

If you raise up your hand to turn on your light
And you look and you see it's still sitting there right
Where you left it, try moving a leg and you might
Discover you've been dreaming

If you find yourself pantsless while out and about
Then you might be dreaming
If nobody hears it when you start to shout
Then you might be dreaming
If your teeth are so loose you can pull them right out
You just might be dreaming

If comic book characters give you what for
If you find it impossible to lock your door
If your kitchen has turf there instead of a floor
You just might be dreaming

(Remember, you wear the cheese, it does not wear you!)

If pictures all change when you try to trace them
Then you might be dreaming
If lights burn out even right as you replace them
Could be that you're dreaming
If folks disappear when you turn to face 'em
You just might be dreaming

If you can't recall how you got where you are
If you have no idea where you parked your car
If it hits you what Frank meant by "sleep in a jar"
Then you might be dreaming

Watching "Breaking Bad" marathon ... first couple episodes [Sep. 25th, 2013|10:14 pm]

I'd forgotten the intense slapstick aspect of the early show. Heck, they even showed some Three Stooges clips.

And I'm reminded why everybody hated Skyler. Sixteen years with Walter and she still can't tell when he's lying?

Oh, and about the finale, I have a theory. I initially thought the show with the Shwartzes was a trap, but what were the odds Walter would have seen it?

But it was mentioned the blue meth was still around, which told Walt that Jesse was still cooking.

My theory is that Walt is heading back there to rescue Jesse.

New TV series "Sleepy Hollow" is stupid and insane, but gloriously so. [Sep. 19th, 2013|11:43 pm]

Imagine if a TV series aspired to be the next Da Vinci Code, and had already got the budget but the entire source material was half a page from The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and half a paragraph from the locale's other famous story, Rip Van Winkle.

Here's an example of the stupidity. Our Hero is guided to a gravestone in an old church cemetery, and the inscription specifies, "... burned as a witch ..."

Okay, two things.

1) If she was burned as a witch, why is she buried in a church cemetery?

2) If she was burned, be it as a witch or no, what was there to bury?

And there are a LOT of very dumb things like that. Evidently, George Washington was some sort of sorcerer.

But it's gloriously shot! I may continue watching. It's just that crazy.
