Give Me A Cure for those Wintertime Blues

Quote of the day: “Well, once again we find that clowning and anarchy don't mix.” The Tick

Song of the day: “Delicious Surprise” by Beth Hart, Screaming For My Supper (Best CD of 1999)

State of mind: tired

Date: 1/9/06

This is the dead of winter. No holidays to look forward to and the days still end way to soon. We are having a January thaw this week, but that is just a cruel tease because right after is the freezing, bitter weather that really brings me down.
But, I have a weapon against the winter blahs.
Gene Kelly.
It is impossible not to smile while watching one of his movies. I dare you. Try it. Especially “Singing in the Rain.” That is the happiest movie on Earth!!
And “An American in Paris” isn’t so bad either. ;)
Just thought I would share. Enjoy.
Happiest Movie Ever!

Angel quote of the day:
Spike: Look, if cavemen and astronauts got into a fight, who would win?
Wesley: Ah. You've been yelling at each other for 40 minutes about this? …Do the astronauts have weapons?
Angel and Spike: No.

Anyone wanna try and answer this one?

I saw that an American in Paris was on this weekend.

Yes, these are the long days until the next holiday. no more short weeks for us until Spring.

*sigh*

The caveman would win because of greater mobility — you know, not having to wear that space suit and all. And I'm sure, in time, he'd yank out an air hose or something.

I think the astronauts can breath the air and would have taken off their suits... if not, then yeah. The cavemen would kick their asses.

Word verification word: grrcy. Caveman mercy perhaps?

Neither one would win. The Village People would show up to sing & dance at the half-time. The cavemen would run in front of a stampeding herd of mastadons, and the astronauts would yank out their air hoses. Things would get messy.

Gene Kelly? *shakes head* You and Leon... ;)

And don't go projecting what happened at your last family reunion into the manly realm of combat, KTM. However if the Village People did show up, I think both the cavemen and astronauts would lay their differences aside and open up a joint can of whoopass...

Astronauts always start whining whenever they come across an unexpected setback - you know, "Houston we have a problem, we've fallen and we can't get up". Caveman resourcefulness wins hands down.

I did indeed smile throughout An American Werewolf in Paris.

:D
It is what it is

I think the astronaut, using his modern-day know-how, would easily handle the caveman...at first. But then, just as he's about to administer the final blow, the caveman shouts "Captain CAAAAVEMAAAAAAN!" and thoroughly whups the astronauts ass.

Word verification: Ezvesin. Ask your doctor if Ezvesin is right for you. Side effects include hairy lungs, time travel, chronic snoring and the waking of the undead.

I just hate it when medication gives me hairy lungs. It's so hard to get a brush in there.

You can always inhale hairspray.

The Twilight Zone ending to that fight would be the astronauts take off their helmets, and they are the cavemen...

John said...

You're blowing my mind, Frank.

Henry said...

not too sure about the caveman vs. astronaut, but I know that either one could whip Fred Astaire.

NYPinTA said...

I dunno... he is pretty quick on his feet you know.

the caveman shouts "Captain CAAAAVEMAAAAAAN!" and thoroughly whups the astronauts ass.

Ah. See, all logic is one again trumped by a Hanna Barbara cartoon.

Spirit Of Owl said...

Yeah, the Scooby Doo ending to that fight is that cavemen take off the astronauts' helmets and they're the guy who cleans the spaceship, the cave painter, and one of the cavemen's daughters. And they would've gotten away with it, too.

trinamick said...

If not for those pesky, pot-smoking kids.

In the Wacky Races ending to the fight the cavemen get in the Boulder Mobile with the Slag Brothers, so the astronauts fire up their spaceship to give chase, but since it was built by professor Pat Pending it falls into a clattering heap. The cavemen think they're laughing, but they're run off the road by the Ant Hill Mob, who are holding Penelope Pitstop hostage. Peter Perfect performs a daring rescue of the distressed pink clad damsel, but here comes Dastardly with a cunning plan to ...

Um, I'll stop now shall I? Oh, alright, Luke and Blubber Bear win in the Arkansas Chugabug. Now, what were we talking about again?
