Archive for January, 2011

You may or may not know, awhile back I did a post about how my life was boring, and I needed an angsty boyfriend…to spice things up.

The obvious person to fill that role was Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails, and I explained the reasons for this choice in that particular blog.

Well, the former drummer for NIN is Josh Freese. He works with all kinds of bands, I can’t even name all of them (I do know one is Devo). But anyway, I like to follow Josh on Twitter, http://twitter.com/joshfreese), as he has some really interesting and funny things to say, as he describes in his Bio, he is an “All around nut.”

I decided that he is really kind of nutty, as he posted pictures of himself driving to go get a vasectomy, and also post-op pictures of his recuperation.  That is really getting personal with “the whole world” if you ask me.  But, for whatever reason he does these things, you just don’t know what he will post next (so intriguing huh?).

Josh makes these bizarre short video clips about various things going on in his life, and I happen to find them quite entertaining. This is how I live my life vicariously, watching the strange things that other people do. Yeah, I know….don’t tell me.

Well, check out this video he made:

Oh, to have a life where all you are worried about is getting some “Sweet’ n Low.”

My 16 year old son is a big-time X-box 360 gamer. For those of you out there who don’t know any better, this is how teenage boys spend their free time with their friends. They can play video games “online” and talk with each other, plan, make teams, etc….while battling Natzi-zombies (Call of Duty Black Ops), or other evil disgusting things. The graphics in these games are light-years beyond the days of playing “Atari’s” pong.

Anyway, from time to time, my son will come and get me to watch something he says is, “so awesome”. I will stop what I am doing, as this IS our quality time (when he wants to share something with me). I go into his game-room, plop down on the couch and try to decipher what is happening on the TV screen. I usually have no clue what I am watching, or what I am supposed to be looking for, so I ask him for a quick update to clue me in.

Usually, his idea of “awesome”, and mine are quite different. He likes killing everything, especially the zombies….the bloodier the better. Me on the other hand, I don’t like gory stuff, so I usually don’t watch those excerpts for very long.

Tonight was different, he comes into the room, “Mom, you have to come see this” He’s laughing between his talking. “This is hilarious…you have to come see it.”

“Ok, what is it?”

“I’m trying this new game….Techno Kitten Adventure.”

“What?” I can hear some crazy techno-music playing. “Ok, sure, I have to see this.”

I follow him to the game-room, he starts the game…..it looks like an eight-year old made this game….and it is really funny. A cat is flying through the air with a jetpack on its back….you have to guide it pass obstacles, while things fly towards it from the psychedelic sky/background. When you die (or rather when kitty dies), it falls and breaks into pieces…while meowing as it falls.

It really is hilarious….that made my evening.

The Best Game Ever!!!

So, I found this old advertisement for “vitamins”, that gave housewives “super energy”………. and it it hilarious.

I’m thinking, “I need those vitamins”, as it seems I just don’t have the energy to  “shampoo the carpet, give the dog a bath, clean out the garage, go through all the closets and get rid of extra “stuff”, clean the baseboards, dust the lamps and fans, weed the flower gardens….all that besides the everyday stuff of cooking, cleaning, laundry,and basic pick up and put away things that everyone else didn’t put away.”

Oh....the good ol' days!

What do you suppose was in those vitamins?  I’m sure today they are “illegal”…..oh well.

Any thoughts?
