How To Dance The Robot!

Oh. My. God. It’s too good. This is so how I plan on spending my summer.

Next time I rock the Mr. Roboto at Karaoke I will have the bad ass robot moves to go with it.

ps-I can’t tell just how serious I am. Is it just a funny video OR am I really going to learn how to do the robot? Periodically during dance party I break out my fake robot, but do I really have what it takes to go all the way? Or is this going to be just like the summer I told Chris I was going to learn all the words to Can’t Touch This but ran out of steam right around the middle of the second chorus? But what if this year I learned how to do the robot WHILE singing Can’t Touch This?

This verse would totally kill with some hot robot moves-

Go with the flow
It is said
That if you can’t groove to this
Then you probably are dead
So wave your hands in the air
Bust a few moves, run your fingers through your hair
This is it for a winter
Dance to this an’ you’re gonna get thinner
Move slide your rump
Just for a minute, let’s all do the bump
Bump bump bump

Heaven Help Us

So Kentucky has a new Creation Museum meant to disprove the theory of evolution. Okey dokey. Well if this is true Playmobil needs to update it’s Noah’s Ark set because according to the “scientists” at the museum, dinosaurs were on board!

And I Got My Black Belt in Barstool

Nothing helps you relax after a long day at work like a little blaxploitation-Foxy Brown. And you have to love Youtube. I was watching the lesbian bar fight scene and laughing my ass off and thought, “someone on Youtube must have posted this!” And they did!

Cable Junction

Tonight I was watching American Experience on PBS. The show was about the laying of the Great Transatlantic Cable

By the middle of the 19th century, a network of telegraph poles strung across America had changed the way the country did business. Samuel Morse’s invention made possible almost instantaneous communication between cities across the continent. Communicating with Europe was another matter. Messages to London were sent the old-fashioned way, aboard sailing ships that could take weeks to reach their destination. Though the need for a transatlantic cable was obvious, the physical challenges to laying one were enormous. The project would require the production of a 2,000 mile long cable that would have to be laid three miles beneath the Atlantic. Cyrus Field, an energetic, young New York paper manufacturer wasn’t deterred. And once he started the endeavor, he wouldn’t give up.

It took twelve years of cajoling and massaging investors, several abortive attempts to lay the cable, and millions of wasted dollars before Field and his team of engineers finally succeeded. On July 27, 1866, when the wire was finally in place, Field sent back the first message to Europe: “Thank God,” he wrote, “the Cable is Laid.” Since that day, almost 140 years ago, nothing has broken his communications link with Europe — not storms, earthquakes or world wars.

It makes me think a few things.

1. How amazing it is that I can lay here in bed and be instantly connected to people all over the world while just 140 some years ago it took weeks to get messages from across the ocean.
2. All this talk of oceans and cables makes me think of Jaws 2. Cable Junction anyone?

So now I am laying in bed and watching Jaws 2. Tina and Eddie have just found the dead orca. Now the question is do I stay true to the movie and watch it all through or just fast forward to when the teens go out sailing. That’s when the fun begins. “Swim Eddie, Swim!”

ps-after the PBS special they had a station i.d. piece by these highschool trombone players who call themselves “The Bone Rangers”. I am sorry, but that name just makes me giggle. Now if I was into writing adult entertainment I would have one helluva premise.
