Randomness and Legos

One Big Bundle of Joy

I watched the movie, Be Kind, Rewind tonight. It is stinkin' hilarious. Not only that, but in its own quirky way it is very endearing. Some big names in it are Jack Black, Mia Farrow and Danny Glover. The basic plot is two friends recreating all the movies in a video store to replace the ones Black's character destroyed. To the left they are doing a 20 minute rendition of Ghost Busters. Other movies they have to make are Robocop, Driving Miss Daisy, and even the animated classic, The Lion King.

Recently I've been thinking about some famous song lyrics that just make me want to raise one eyebrow. There is a Tim and Faith song that says, "I need you like a needle needs a vein". Not exactly the most heartwarming, maybe heart draining, metaphor for love. I also think the imagery Fergie uses is odd when she says, "and I'm gonna miss you like a child misses its blanket". Tonight, however, Bobby Bare took the gold as I turned on the radio and heard, "Dropkick me, Jesus, through the goalposts of life".

I also wanted to inform all my astute readers that the championship has been won! The World's Ugliest Dog Contest has crowned Gus their King. Gus is a one-eyed, three-legged Chinese Crested who also has skin cancer. He has overcome a lot of odds... well, maybe for him they aren't so bad; "Big buckets of drool get extra points," radio station KZST emcee Brent Farris said in the story. "So do missing limbs."

Oh, how I would love to continue telling you all about the things I store in my brain's "random drawer" (it's kind of like that kitchen drawer that you throw things in because you just don't know where else to put them). However, I'm totally tired so I'm signing out.

Yikes! That is one ugly dog! I feel bad that it had skin cancer though. So sad.

Rewind sounds pretty funny. I'll have to check it out.
