I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

Thanks, Roku!

I just got me The Roku, allowing me to watch whatever's on my Netflix Insta-Watch Queue on my projector, whenever I want to.

Sweet Charity somehow got into my Instant Queue, and, um, YAY, because it means I get to watch this on a big screen, with my kick-ass surround sound.

I've probably posted this before, but I'll post it again, because I think everything about this movie is a fantastic, stylized piece of art; especially, in this scene, the costumes (Thanks, Edith Head!) and the choreography (thanks, Bob Fosse!) I think, besides the filthy jazz, my next favorite part of this scene is how dead the girls' faces are.

I guess since most of our exposure to "Hey, Big Spender" is in a more innocent context, it was shocking for me to find out, the first time I watched the movie, that it's sung by hookers, looking to lure a John.

Don't watch it at work, so you can turn your speakers up.

"Oooooh, ya soooooo tawwwwl!"


Sometimes, I read stuff that makes me worry about the human race. There's another South Florida Blogger, that I don't make much mention of (or mention ever) but whose blog I read, usually because I need to remind myself that there are stupid people in the world whose every opinion is... wrong.

It's sort of like when you have a scab, and you can't help jamming a fingernail into it, to release that sharp, satisfying pain; that's the closest to a reason I can give why I read the blog, because ideologically, I am on the polar opposite of this blogger, and I don't respect the blogger's opinions because I think they're knee-jerk reactions regurgitated from Fox News, despite [REDACTED TO PRESERVE THE BLOGGER'S IDENTITY]. I probably don't take the blog well, because I think the writer is, for lack of a better word, an idiot. The fluff pieces are fine and pleasant, but anything besides fluff makes me want to jam a fork into my arm.

Don't worry, if you're on my Blogroll, you're safe, it's not you. (I even updated it today! Yay! Although I forgot someone - I'm looking at you, Curlatini).

Today's blog was a doozy.

That's really all I have to say about that; I'm not interested in stirring controversy or making waves or enemies. I can tell by my SiteMeter that my readership has dropped dramatically (WHERE HAVE YOU ALL GONE!? WHY DIDN'T YOU STAY WITH ME THROUGH MY MANY ABSENCES?!) so I'm sure this person has no idea I exist, and I'm okay with keeping it that way.

But... UGH, you know?!
