Thank You Disney!

Finally! Something original. Cheesy but original.
I knew you could do it.

I'm not sure I could take another Lion King or Cinderella sequel.

Coming soon Cinderella 3... apparently they forgot to tell us some shit in the Original.

A Fine Frenzy’s debut album “One Cell In The Sea” is amazing. It’s totally my kind of music! I really, really like this CD. I think you guys should really check it out - watch the video.

And another reason to love her? She’s opening for my OTHER favorite, Brandi Carlile this fall on VH1’s “You Oughta Know” Tour. Check them out!

“A Fine Frenzy is a blend of sounds and influences. Where there’s Ella, Aretha and Louis, there’s also Radiohead, Sigur Ros, Aqualung and Keane” HARP Magazine

A Fine Frenzy is the music of 22 year-old Alison Sudol.

Born in Seattle to dramatic-arts teacher parents, Alison moved to Los Angeles at the age five. With her newly single mother, Alison moved frequently around the city. She developed a strong love for the fantastic literary worlds of CS Lewis, EB White, Lewis Carroll and Charles Dickens, while becoming a passionate author in her own right.

Alison also immersed herself in classical music, Motown, Aretha Franklin, swing bands, Ella Fitzgerald, Elton John, Louis Armstrong, the Beatles, Technicolor movies and classic 1950’s television.

After teaching herself to play piano, Alison increasingly invested her internal narratives into song form. She found solace in the melodic melancholia of new global British bands Aqualung, Radiohead, Coldplay and Keane, etc… She was also moved by the diatonic minimalism of Philip Glass and the transportive allure of Icelandic music (Bjork, Sigur Ros.) Inspired, Alison developed the sound of A Fine Frenzy - hypnotic piano arrangements under classic American melody fused into irresistible, atmospheric songs with the power to reach around the world.

Check out this video for my favorite song on her album “Almost Lover”

They look so cute together don't they?

It's Easy As Life

According to the Jim Hill Media Blog, the Disney musical Aida might be on its way to the big screen - with Beyonce Knowles possibly taking on the title role of the Nubian princess-turned-slave.

Hill writes that Disney is "reportedly already in talks with this pop diva, trying to convince Knowles to make Aida her follow-up project to Dreamgirls. Starring in the movie version of this Tony Award-winning musical should be a no-brainer for Beyoncé.

Hill also states that Disney is eager to produce a big screen version of the Egypt-set musical romance, as they had bought the rights to Leontyne Pryce's children's book version of the Verdi opera upon which the Disney musical was based and "originally thought that this material might make fine fodder for a feature length cartoon."

Faggotry at it's best!

I have no words for what you are about to see.

If JenderJosh and I ever have a drag show I imagine this is the type of stuff you'll see.

Sometimes a deadbolt isn't enough

So I recently had a close encounter with an alleged psycho.

I’ve changed the names in this story to protect the innocent. Although I’m pretty sure that even a dull two year old will be able to put the pieces together.

So I get home from a movie yesterday and my roommate Duncan is there with some guy I’ve never met. I’m introduced to Todd. Todd seems like a nice guy, getting instant points with me by complementing my musical collection. Todd and I continue talking while Duncan takes a quick shower. Todd and I talk about musicals we’ve seen and liked and played a quick game of who do we know in common. Duncan comes out in the living room and He and Todd leave to go get a bite to eat. They come back with Wendy’s in hand at which point I regret not requesting a frosty but decide to make myself a Bellini instead. Champagne and Peach Sorbet have never tasted so good.

So we all chat a bit more, play some karaoke game on the PS2 and then we all somehow ended up back in Duncan’s room looking at his kilt. Our neighbor Shalini sticks her head in the apartment and announces a smoke break. I leave to join her and when I came back into the apartment Duncan’s bedroom door is shut.

I of course think well, good on ya there mate, and go back outside for another cigarette.

Unbeknownst to me… Duncan was not excited about the door being shut. Apparently Todd took my leaving the apartment as his cue to mount Duncan. Looking back on things I did see a bit of terror in poor Duncan’s eyes when Shalini announced the smoke break. But I was much too focused on my nicotine fix to notice.

So Shalini and I are out smoking and my door opens and Duncan and Todd leave. I don’t think anything of it till Duncan calls and tells me all the gritty details.

Apparently Duncan and Todd had met earlier in the day online and Duncan (in a very brave attempt at being outgoing and making new friends) invited Todd over to hang out.

Well it now looks as though Todd took that as, “Come over. I’m very interested in having you inside me".

Well needless to say things didn’t work out between Duncan and Todd. As was exhibited in the text Duncan received around 11 that asked, “What do you wear to bed?”

I loved Duncan’s response, “heavy sweat pants, I’m going to sleep now, night.”

So I’ve written this blog, not in an attempt to humiliate or make fun of, but to help my dear little Duncan.

Well that and I do have some nice things in apartment that I would like to keep.

So after going through Todd’s profile a little more thoroughly I’ve compiled….

Clues that the guy you’ve just met on Connexions.org is probably a psycho.

Exhibit A.

Really? Straight. Okay. If you’re straight why are you talking to someone who has this in their profile?

The Desperation Trifecta +1. Those four things say, “I’m basically looking for anyone who’ll give me the time of day. Please God, Don’t let me die alone”

Exhibit C.

When half of your favorite books listed are ones you read in Junior High… perhaps you should think about reading an adult book. I mean don’t get me wrong. I read “Are you there God? It’s me, Margaret” ever year. But I’m not going to list it on my favorite books.

Exhibit D.

Dating… has always been and always will be code for - I’m sleeping with half the valley.

Exhibit E.

I don’t think a movies ever made me a better person. Well I take that back. There were a few After School Specials that really shaped who I am as a person. But they don’t make those anymore. And the only thing Waiting for Guffman moved me to was the other room so I could escape from that piece of crap movie.

Exhibit F.

Okay clearly, if you are mentioning your “X” (it’s “ex” by the way) then we have a whole separate truck full of issues.

Exhibit G.

Okay I get it you were lied to by, from the looks of it, an ex-boyfriend who liked drugs. He tried to get you to do them. I get it. I get it. Love the quote in this one. It’s very “I’m not trying to, but I’m totally quoting Rent”

And finally 831. This one took a bit of digging. But apparently it is a code for his ex. It means I love you. 8 letters, 3 words, 1 person. Excuse me for a moment. I seem to have thrown up on my keyboard…

Okay I’m back. Why would you ever want to meet a person who has made their entire profile about their ex?

Exhibit H.

That’s right. He’s posted the lyrics to a Clay Aiken song in his profile. Oh that I were making this shit up. I mean really if you just read the lyrics for a bit, it’s like I don’t even need to make fun of this section. It’s already done for me.

And Finally

Exhibit I.

Yes ladies and gentle-ladies, he hates his ex so much that he still has a picture of them together in his profile.

I have to include this last little bit. It’s not in the profile but Duncan did mention that Todd had said something earlier in the day that made him wonder. I guess Todd told him that his ex has accused him of stalking. And by accused I mean called the cops and stuff.

Don’t fret little Duncan. You did a good thing by trying to befriend the crazy. But you forgot that all important rule. Crazy people have all the friends they need. Right there inside their head.

You should really watch the whole thing... you know unless you don't really love America....
You do love America, don't you?

Happy Birthday America!

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.
