I give up. I can't fix whatever is wrong with my page. It saves in the same place that it always did, but ever since I got the "update" of Filezilla, it adds extra crap to the url. If you want to follow my deathless prose, bookmark this:

Before you ask: Yes, I know the first image isn't there. Right-click on it, and it will show where it's supposed to be. All I know is that my FTP program FileZilla has gone insane. It took several days to just upload this text. It's saving things in random folders, including ones I didn't create. If you're thinking "You must've done it yourself" as a general rule I don't do things I don't know how to do. It's right in the same folders as the duck cartoons. I have no idea what's going on.
Also--I put this here because now it won't let me update the text on my page. It worked after 4 days, then an hour later failed. Just understand that I'm pretty sure it's not me doing it, it's ZileFilla, and I can't fix them from here.

{{massive hugs}} re: Father's Day. It's going to suck for me too this year.

I feel like I haven't seen Marty the robot anywhere, but then again I always forget which is Star and which is Stop and Shop

Unsurprisingly, the smelliest person I've ever encountered was via public transportation. She was a sweet-looking old lady, but the stench was so vile that I couldn't even assign an origin to it (...shit? Decay? Three-week-old deli meat?). I finally ended up getting off the bus two stops early because I could not bear to sit next to her for another second.

I spotted a lot I knew, mainly from the old PBS show Matinee at the Bijou, but also some from MST. I should've pointed out that the Manhunt snippet includes the "CEILING MEPHISTO IS WATCHING YOU MASTURBATE" Lolcat I did for my review.
Funniest though was the doughy guy in his 50s who strips and he's--Captain America. Chris Evans was different then! The role would've been more believably played by k.d. lang.

Hey, they used some footage from Undersea Kingdom! "Your hat's very creative today, Kyle."

"Constaaant craaaaving--to punch Hitler in the face..."
See? I'm the best of both possible worlds!

I've had a crush on k.d. lang a lot longer than I've had a crush on Chris Evans. Just sayin'. ;)

The thing that has astonished me at Tumblr--okay, one of the things--is that among a certain age segment, there is great sentimental attachment to that godawful movie. I have read elegies rhapsodizing about it, I kid you not. Maybe if I had seen it as a kid, I wouldn't have been overwhelmed by horror and the thought that this was the worst possible Hollywood debut for a comic genius who deserved better. He gave so many inspired performances, like Lord Flashheart in Black Adder! As well, he used to--wildly, energetically-host a kids' show telling fairy tales called Grim Tales, shown on A&E back when it was good, and most of which I have taped on VHS! Plus he was cast as Peeves in the first Harry Potter movie, only all of his scenes ended up on the cutting room floor.

What I guess I'm saying is yeah. It's a terrible movie, yet bizarrely, it's adored by some Gen Y and/or millenials. And I'm sure that it's not at all apparent that I've been fangirling over Rik Mayall since 1985 or anything.

Lilly, I kept thinking "I think I know this guy," but never put it together. I believe that 2nd Siskel & Ebert video has him in it. But it's from "Drop Dead Fred," so it's best to say nothing more about that.

Something you neglected to point out about that Art of Noise video is that it stars Rik Mayall (sadly, RIP). I was at the zenith of my Young Ones obsession when that video came out, and I just about had an aneurysm when I saw who was playing the hero.

(Two other unexpected Mayall appearances: in the RHPS sequel Shock Treatment and An American Werewolf in London!)

To carry over from FB...whether I can sit through A Talking Cat!?! is now a moot point, unfortunately. I rolled over it in my sleep and broke it. I'll let you know if I want another copy. ;)

I like quiet moments too. One of my favorite scenes with 'my Doctor' (#7) is where he's just sitting in a café, postulating by way of shooting the shit with the guy working there. One of my criticisms of Nu Hu is that there aren't a lot of those kind of scenes. It's all action-action-action so much of the time, which as you know is exhausting.

Losing a pet is so hard! Sending you internet sympathies from NYC!
