I ♥ Tim Minchin!!! He's My Hero!

THIS is Tim Minchin.

He's like a comedic musician. I don't know TOO much about him yet, but you can bet I'm going to become an expert. I will be ordering his comedy albums very shortly. But he's obviously very smart. haha And I agree with his ideas. And he's an atheist. I love him.

But the reason for this post right now is due to this video on youtube. This gem is only the most recent wonderfulness I've found from the fantastic Tim Minchin:

How fucking awesome is that!? Man, I want a fucking MP3! So genius. And SO RIGHT! FUCK THE FUCKING POPE! Covering up child rape?! Are you fucking kidding me!? All the "good little Catholics" should be up in arms about this! They should be fucking pissed that it gives them such a bad name! ARGH... OK I'm going off topic...back to Minchin.

The first thing I ever found of his was this (also awesome, though not quite as serious a topic as the above):

If you don't love these, then I have no idea why you even bother to read this blog. ;-)

Hope you enjoy!

The End.

PS OK, you got me. I am also very, very attracted to his accent. Hrrrrrrr...... ;-)

PPS Buy his stuff! I'm sure going to!

PPPS The guy responsible for the animation in the fucking pope song, is Fraser Davidson, who is apparently really fucking talented!! See here:

EDIT: Here's the Pope Song lyrics! (Just in case you miss a few words - or you want to memorise them like I do! haha)

Fuck the motherfucker
Fuck the motherfucker
Fuck the motherfucker he’s a fucking motherfucker!
Fuck the motherfucker
Fuck the fucking fucker
Fuck the motherfucker he’s a total fucking fucker!
Fuck the motherfucker
Fuck the motherfucker
Fuck the motherfucker, fucking fuck the motherfucker!
Fuck the motherfucker
Fuck the motherfucking Pope!
Fuck the motherfucker, and fuck you, motherfucker
If you think that motherfucker is sacred.
If you cover for another motherfucker who’s a kiddy fucker
Fuck you, you’re no better than the motherfucking rapist.
And if you don’t like the swearing that this motherfucker forced from me
And reckon it shows moral or intellectual paucity
Then fuck you, motherfucker, this is language one employs
When one is fucking cross about fuckers fucking boys.
I don’t give a fuck if calling the Pope a motherfucker
Means you unthinkingly brand me an unthinking apostate.
This has nowt to do with other fucking godly motherfuckers
I’m not interested right now in fucking scriptural debate.
There are other fucking songs and there are other fucking ways
I’ll be a religious apologist on other fucking days.
But the fact remains that if you protect a single kiddy fucker
Then Pope or prince or plumber, you’re a fucking motherfucker!
You see I don’t give a fuck what any other motherfucker
Believes about Jesus and his motherfucking mother.
I’ve no problem with the spiritual beliefs of all these fuckers
While those beliefs don’t impact on the happiness of others.
But if you build your church on claims of fucking moral authority
And with threats of hell impose it on others in society
Then you, you motherfuckers, can expect some motherfucking wrath
When it turns out you’ve been fucking us in our motherfucking asses!
So fuck the motherfucker, and fuck you, motherfucker
If you’re still a motherfucking papist.
If he covered for a single motherfucker who’s a kiddy fucker
Fuck the motherfucker, he’s as evil as the rapist.
And if you look into your motherfucking heart and tell me true
If this motherfucking stupid fucking song offended you
With its filthy fucking language and its fucking disrespect
If it made you feel angry, go ahead and write a letter.
But if you find me more offensive than the fucking possibility
The Pope protected priests when they were getting fucking fiddly
Then listen to me motherfucker, this here is a fact:
You are just as morally misguided as that motherfucking power-hungry, self-aggrandised
Bigot in his stupid fucking hat.

KiCK-ASS: The Movie!!!!

OK, so I finally saw Kick-Ass last week and I LOVED IT!!!! And I'm not just saying that because Marvel published the book or because I'm friends with the awesome dudes that created it! I swear!

There were certainly some changes in the story, but I think they made for a better movie. Some things work better in a comic or book than they do on the big screen. Especially when you're shooting for a wider audience.

Well anyway! It was so much fun! "Super" heroes, VIOLENCE & cussing! What more does one need! The kid who plays Dave "Kick-Ass" Lizewski does a pretty good job. But the star of the show, in my opinion...

Holy shit. That girl is so fucking awesome. I mean, I loved her in the comic, but she's even more KICK-ASS (har har) in live action! Holy balls! I want to be her so bad. And be her I shall. Last year, while watching Star Trek I decided I would be a Starfleet chick and such has happened this time. I'm SO going to be Hit Girl. Though I have to say, just doing a quick search does not yield very good results on costume bits. The wig will probably be the only easy part. And I think I can make her belt. We shall see.

And I have to say, Nick Cage? Not so bad! He was actually kinda funny at times! Far cry from his role in Ghos...um...nevermind! Nick Cage rules! haha OK, not really, but I didn't hate him in this.

So if you've had any reservations on this, ignore them! hehe It really is a lot of fun. Especially if you like violence. Watching a 12 year old slicing & dicing in a purple wig is surprisingly fulfilling. haha Well not that surprising for me, as I'm not a fan of ze childrens. THIS is a child I could love. ;-)

AND if you like to read the series...well...what's stopping you!

And check out the cool "making of" book too!

The End.

SNL Does It Again!!!

All I have to say here, is WATCH THIS!:

If you don't know why this is great, THIS is why! How frakkin' RETARDED (I said it again, Palin) is this?!??!!?

OK... so I was gonna post the video but apparently it's gone off youtube. Here's the song to some lame images:

Skepchick, which rules, has an awesome blog about it here.

That's really all I had to say. Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!!

The End.

PS For your ease in understanding why I love this parody, here's the lyrics to the original Insane Clown Posse song. (I have hated these assholes since I was in high school ... which was a loooooong time ago now ... and this just validated it for me!)

If magic is all we've ever know
Then it's easy to miss what really goes on
But I've seen miracles in every way
And I see miracles everyday
Oceans spanning beyond my sight
And a million stars way above em at night
We don't have to be high to look in the sky
And know that's a miracle opened wide
Look at the mountains, trees, the seven seas
And everything chilling underwater, please
Hot lava, snow, rain and fog
Long neck giraffes, and pet cats and dogs
And I've seen eighty-five thousand people
All in one room, together as equals
Pure magic is the birth of my kids
I've seen shit that'll shock your eyelids
The sun and the moon, and even Mars
The Milky Way and fucking shooting stars
UFOs, a river flows
Plant a little seed and nature grows
Niagara falls and the pyramids
Everything you believed in as kids
Fucking rainbows after it rains
there's enough miracles here to blow your brains
I fed a fish to a pelican at Frisco bay
It tried to eat my cell phone, he ran away
And music is magic, pure and clean
You can feel it and hear it but it can't be seen

Music is all magic
(Are you a believer in miracles)
You can't even hold it
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)
it's just there in the air
(Are you a believer in miracles)
Pure motherfucking magic Right?
This shit'll blow your fucking mind
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)

Music is a lot like love, it's all a feeling
And it fills the room, from the floor to the ceiling
[ Find more Lyrics on http://mp3lyrics.org/RFGe ]
I see miracles all around me
Stop and look around, it's all astounding
Water, fire, air and dirt
Fucking magnets, how do they work?
And I don't wanna talk to a scientist
Y'all motherfuckers lying, and getting me pissed
Solar eclipse, and vicious weather
Fifteen thousand Juggalos together
And I love my mom for giving me this
Time on this planet, taking nothing for granted
I seen a caterpillar turn into a butterfly
Miracles ain't nothing to lie
Shaggy's little boys look just like Shaggy
And my little boy looks just like daddy
Miracles each and every where you look
And nobody has to stay where they put
This world is yours for you to explore
there's nothing but miracles beyond your door
The Dark Carnival is your invitation
To witness that without explanation
Take a look at this fine creation
And enjoy it better with appreciation
Crows, ghosts, the midnight coast
The wonders of the world, mysteries the most
Just open your mind, and it ain't no way
To ignore the miracles of every day

(Are you a believer in miracles)
Magic everywhere in this bitch
(Do you notice and recognize miracles)
it's all around you, you don't even know it
(Are you a believer in miracles) Shit's crazy
(Do you notice and recognize miracles,
So many miracles, the magic miracles)

Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles
Are you a believer in miracles
Do you have time for the miracles
Do you notice and recognize miracles
So many miracles, the magic miracles

The 2010 Jen

So as mentioned repeatedly on twitter, I was sick of my mess of hair and planned to cut it all off. So I done did it.

I figured I may as well put a "before" picture, so here's one of my Kurt Cobain impression. ;-) I bought this glasses for 5 bucks during the Staten Island St. Patrick's Day parade because the sun was killing me and I though they were ridiculous, which made me love them. Someone pointed out that they looked like Cobain glasses. Which my shitty-looking bleach-blonde hair, it was too good to NOT take a picture of before I cut it all off...

The above hair was just so dead from being bleach multiple times...I wanted it gone. Even though last year I was determined to grow it long. I have no patience.

Here's the midway point. Hair cut off but not yet bleached. Took this picture for my mom so she can see me with my natural hair colour for the first time in like 12 years! I had the idea that I might leave it like this for a little bit, but I really do hate this colour, so no dice....

Here it is all done from a couple angles...

Was going to wait two weeks, but couldn't. Had to put my signature pink in. I just love having pink hair so much. Really ANY crazy colour, but pink lasts the longest without fading to a shit colour...

Now with more glasses!

I've gotten positive responses from this new do, so I'm happy! :-)

The End.

PS Here's one taken with my favourite new iPhone app: Hipstamatic! So cool. This one's taken with the Roboto Glitter lens!

Mr. & Mrs. Fitch!

I am lucky enough to have a friend who works at Second Stage Theater who can sometimes hook me up with comp tickets for plays they run there. (Last time I saw Becky Shaw — mainly because I loved Kelly Bishop in Gilmore Girls!) Which is a good thing because A) I'm broke & B) it gets me to see things I wouldn't normally see.

While I do like John Lithgow, I'm not what you would consider a fan, so I probably wouldn't have bothered to see Mr. & Mrs. Fitch. But luckily my friend offered up a couple of tickets on a night I happened to be free, and am I glad he did!

I LOVED it! I was REALLY great!! So funny, so clever. Lithgow was FANTASTIC. And so was his co-star, Jennifer Ehle! It's basically about two gossip columnists who run out of juicy celebrity gossip and what they do to get back in the gossip game! It's just a two-person play, but they bounce off each other so well, that's all you need. And did I mention it was funny? Oh and I HAVE to mention the FANTASTIC set!!! It all takes place in their apartment in Manhattan and WOW. I would kill for an apartment like that. GORGEOUS. And not to mention they had a copy of The Yiddish Policemen's Union: A Novel (P.S.) by Michael Chabon on their table! hehe I love recognising book covers from far away... :-P

Oh and speaking of far away, if you haven't been to Second Stage, it's a great little theater. And because it's little, there are no bad seats. I highly recommend seeing a performance there. They tend to have good shows too.

Unfortunately, it's last performance was yesterday, but I think shows like this travel around, so keep a look-out in case it shows up where you live!

The End.

PS While waiting around for my friend, Lithgow came out and signed some people's stuff. I didn't really have anything to say so I let him be. I was surprised to see him take the subway, though! :-)
