More random acts of bloggery.
Several times over the weekend I saw a commercial for one of those ubitiquous forensic investigation/military/urban crime shows, don't remember which one, where at one point we're shown someone's abdomen wiggling around like there was something in it, then a few seconds later we see a COBRA burst out! A COBRA! Snakes on a plane indeed!
And every single effing time I burst out laughing.
Maybe it was because it looked like an obvious puppet, maybe it was the timing of the belly-buster, maybe it was that it made me think of the chestbuster parody from Spaceballs- and has there ever been a film that's so much fun to talk about and quote, but such a grind to actually sit through?- but it cracked me up.
I'm a sick individual sometimes.
Also, there seems to be a Harry Nilsson documentary in the works! I must see this!
Van Morrison's contractual obligation album! From the blogpage that has the links:
In order to fulfill his obligation to his early solo label Bang Records,Van Morrison sat down in 1967 or so and cranked out 31 songs on the spot, on topics ranging from ringworm to wanting a danish, to hating his record label and a guy named George.
These are a hoot- give 'em a listen! And WFMU: Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music wasn't a contractual obligation album- that would be Take No Prisoners. Thanks to Mike Carey, my fellow Stupid Llama, for the heads-up. Mike relly should have his own blog.
