Just some thoughts and ideas going around in my head while trying to figure out where I am and where everyone else is going.

Merry Christmas Bed Intruder

Since it's Christmas I was going to talk about everyone being merry and jolly and everything while people in the Côte d'Ivoire were dying in the streets because of election results and that there were wars going on and poverty and disease was  still rampant elsewhere in the world. Then I was going to compare it to the original Christmas Story where people will often speak about peace coming to world because of the birth of the Christ Child while forgetting to mention the accompanying Massacre of the Innocents, the mass slaughter of first born children ordered by King Herod. The good and the bad. The yin and the yang.

After that I was going to wrap it up by saying something about, "good times," a line from a book rather than the TV show. And by the book I mean Dickens' A Tale of Two Cities where he starts off with, "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times," and then go on from there. It might have turned out nicely, but I think it would have been too much work to do well, or well enough before Christmas. So I'm just going to show a bunch of video pieces.

I don't know if Joan Rivers is still doing that show where she goes into the houses of rich people who got there because of some idea they had, but I remember part of a show where she went to the home of the man who invented the Snuggie or the Slanket or something. Well actually I don't remember the house or even really the show, but I do remember thinking to myself was how does someone selling a cheap polyester blanket with sleeves cut or sewn into it become a millionaire? And how does someone get silly white girls to flash there boobs in front of a home video camera and make a mint out of it, and why don't I have the ability to make money out of nothing?

Well apparently this ability seems to be happening to everyone except me.....Roll the tape please because its starts here and now....

And that becomes this.

Which moves onto....


  1. really Antoine Dodson LOL OMG Funny I needed that lift.

  2. Yes, I was sent the video earlier in the year. Its both hilarious and a bit embarassing I think.

    Wishing you a happy and healthy 2011.

  3. ♫Hershey's Kiss♫ - Now the question is, will you buy his song now that it's hit #1 on iTunes downloads.

    BosGuy - I had never of Antoine or what they had done with his TV interview until recently. And you're right, it is kind of embarrassing but since he's making money out of it, I say as long as it helps him out of where he is, have at it.

  4. Greetings, I certainly hope that you enjoyed a festive holiday season. I couldn't help but laugh after reading this entry to your blog, I agree with so much that had transpired during the year Christmas just didn't have them same flare. War, poverty and high rates of unemployment didn't bring joy to many.

    I too have often wondered how so many people seem to get flithy rich from such simple things, a damn Snuggle Blanket, meaningless songs etc. What the heck am I doing incorrectly? Oh I know it's the universe telling me that I don't fit in with everyone else, okay.

    Maybe this decade will be better; thanks for setting the record straight because I hadn't even remotely thought about 2001 being the beginning and 2011 beiing a new decade.
