I’m Just A Bad Blogger This Week

Posted in beardface, flight of the conchords, videos on July 23, 2008 by pgleason85

I (most likely) will not have time to post anything tomorrow. I can’t say why, but I will say that I had to shave my face. I’m not happy about it. Here’s a before and after:

Before

After:

Its not that I love my facial hair that much, its just that it allows me to be a great deal lazier, which is something I am all for. (hey. i took one of those from my parents basement. does that make me a true blogger?) So yeah, shaving had to be done, so you can guess what I’m doing tomorrow based on that information.

The good news is that I have the fasting growing hair on earth (perhaps I shouldn’t admit this) so ol’ lazy beard will be back. In honor of my lost beard, here’s a flight of the conchords video (Brett has a beard…its relevant!)

Hey. I Posted A Bowie Video

You know what that means!

Flight Of The Conchords Video

I figured i kinda had to post this one, considering it was YouTube’s featured video and all.

Blind Gov

Posted in flight of the conchords, videos on April 22, 2008 by pgleason85

Just saw this Times article about Governor Paterson linked to over at Cajun Boy in the City. There’s one part of the Cajun Boy post that I can relate to whole heartedly.

not sure if i’ve ever mentioned it here previously, but going blind is one of my life’s greatest fears. it’s an irrational one i suppose since i have no history of eye problems or blindness in my family and still have perfect vision at 35, but a real fear nonetheless.

I can completely relate to that fear. I had an incident once where i was temporarily blinded in one of my eyes. There is nothing scarier then opening your eye and not seeing anything. Thankfully there was no permanent damage and I can see fine, but still, those few minutes are ingrained in my memory. It was incredibly terrifying. Reading that particular passage reminded me of when it happened. So yeah, kudos to Patterson.

To lighten the mood, here is a flight of the Conchords clip that has nothing to do with any of this, but that I need to watch to forget about possibly going blind.

(I changed the video to one they didn’t use on their show)

I Got Nuthin’

I can’t think of any damn thing to write.  I supposed I could write amusing anecdotes about my weekend and my roommate convincing some dude that he wrote Hey There Delilah (seriously, how gullible do you have to be to buy that one).  But that story pretty much ends there.  I think there was more.  Something about a full bottle of Jack Daniels in the back room of Kingsize (which was in an episode of Flight of the Conchords, so the video below is relevant!.)  I think there was a stripper pole or something like that (not as cool as it sounds, I think only the guys tried it out…in fact, I’m fairly certain I fell rather hard off of it) I don’t know, going out at 3pm and getting home at 6:30am will severely skew your memories.   But you don’t really want to read about that now do you?

I could do another random 10 songs off my iPod.  I’m considering doing that and actually uploading the songs to a muxtape too.  So there is that.

I could probably try and write another random list post about random thoughts that I have. But I haven’t had any good random thoughts lately.

I don’t even have any good rants percolating, and that is saying something.

Hey, the Pope just got here! Man, CNN is really into this.  They showed him walking down the stairs with like 6 different angles on Wolf Blitzer’s crazy video wall thing. Cool!  I guess I could write about how the Yankees aren’t letting him drive the Pope Mobile on the field, but my Yanks get enough bad press as it is. I’m just glad I don’t live in the Bronx anymore, that is gonna screw up getting around that borough just a little bit.  i guess his trip to Manhattan Friday might muck up my day a tiny bit.  Oh well.  By the way, is it bad that any time I think of the pope this scene from Eurotrip pops into my head.

I guess I am just going off on some tangents in this post.  That’s cool though, right? Whatever.

I seem to remember reading an article this week that said watching too much television can lead to depression.  (I would link to it, but I can’t find it) That is unsettling news.  I literally watch TV all day.  I watch it at work (because my job entails it).  I watch it at home.  I think the only time I don’t constantly watch TV is on weekends.  And even then I usually watch something.  I even watch some shows I used to despise. Oh well. I hadn’t noticed anything  (sobs and collapses into a heap on the floor…but not really)

Speaking of television, the AV Club’s TV Club blog is one of my favorite things on the internet.  It does a great job of reviewing each episode of a lot of the shows that I watch.  Its a great feature that follows a lot of good shows throughout their respective seasons.  If you watch those shows you should read it!

Thats about all the random things I can think of for now.  As always, here’s a live version of the  Flight of the Conchords Bowie song:

So I Had A Bit Of A Long Day

Posted in flight of the conchords, music, random, videos on April 14, 2008 by pgleason85

Having a rough day due to lack of sleep and all that good stuff.  Being tired at work can put me in a foul mood. So I was trying to cheer myself up by finding a YouTube clip that would put a smile on my face.  While doing that I heard a Ford Commercial that used one of my favorite cheer up songs.  Its Grandaddy’s AM180.  I’m not even sure what the song is even about, I just know that it will always put me in a good mood, so I figured I would share with all (3) of you:

(if you’ve seen 28 Days Later this is the song where they raid the supermarket.  its the happiest scene in the movie…which wasn’t difficult cause it’s a zombie movie, but whatever)

Also, this did the trick as well

Post a Flight of the Conchords video from YouTube!

Alright!   Also, if you have the time read this post at Best Week Ever about trying to catch up on television shows.  That might as well be me.
