Reasons to Live

There are lots of reasons to live: good friends, a sense of purpose in life, good house music, nice sunsets, etc, etc. But here are two more:

  • Jay Zeezer's mash-up of Jay-Z's "99 Problems" and Nena's "99 Luftballons (Red Balloons)". You can get it here: 99 Luft Problems. (Warning: Explicit and possibly offensive lyrics.)

  • Creature Comforts. This is a British TV show that is difficult to describe. It's a claymation thing by the Wallace and Grommit folks. The show creators interviewed ordinary folks about a bunch of different topics. The interviews were unscripted. The interviews are then set to claymation. Hard to describe, but it might just be one of the most amusing things ever. It's on Fridays at 10:20 on BBC America.

    I LOVE creature comforts! Nancy andrews showed it to us in documentary video, and i thought it was just a movie, a one-time thing. I had forgotten about it, actually, til i was channel surfing a few months ago, and found it. Actually, it must have been around christmas time, cause it was their christmas episode! LOL! SO funny! :-)
    I'll have to check out that song/mix. I like J-Z's mixes with Linkin Park.

    It's a poor rhetorical strategy to use 'etc'. For example, you could have chosen to fill the space of your incessant etcs with real-life experiences, such as your love for your dear auntie Mabel or perhaps your fondness for the unending caterwauling of those god-forsaken cats you live with.

    But...I love your blog anyway.
