i watched my share of brain candy last week when i was sick in bed for a day. and sometimes even that didn't alleviate my boredom. but the HILARIOUS thing that i did watch was an episode of 'making the video'
on mtv. they chronicled the making of the video of 'idiot boyfriend' by jimmy fallon of snl
fame. the song is nothing special, but in his video he spoofs a bunch of 80s videos. the best one by far is the send up of bobby brown's 'every little step'. jimmy's dancing around just like bobby did in the video, wearing bicycle pants that say 'jimmy' down the side, and even has the sideswept hair style. it's too damn funny. the only problem is that i was singing 'every little step' to myself (and rory sometimes) for 2 days afterwards. it made me want to dig out the dance tapes i made for summer camp dances in the 80s so i could dance around to that song and other great new wave
music, but then i remembered-oh yeah, i think they are still at my parents house in palo alto. darn it!
monday morning amusement: when i was just looking up the snl link for your browsing pleasure, i typed 'saturday night lice' into search. didn't get half the interesting sites i was hoping for, but the phrase itself is worth a laugh or two.
by the way, did you know that rachel dratch from snl went to dartmouth?
happy beginning of the week...
