Kitties gettin’ down and gettin’ funky

❤❤❤

I do not know if this is shopped.

But I do not know quite a lot.

Quite frankly, I just do not care.

It makes me laugh from here to there.

Hey?! Do You Wanna Dance, cats?

Before What?

Mad Monster Party by Frank Frazetta.

❤👿❤

There’s a big Halloween concert/party in Metropolis the night before Jimmy and Dutchess’…

*ring ring*

“Hey”

“Hey, Dizz. You get a ticket?”

“Damn straight.”

“Awesome! You’re coming!”

“So, yeah? The WHOLE weekend before. Should be fun. Sure hope I’m up for it.”

“Before what?”

“Before Halloween?”

“What’s before Halloween?”

“The, ummmmm, weekend? Of the parties?”

“O-o-o-o-oh… Of course.”

*burst of laughter*

*rim shot*

😜

👿

And so it goes… We laugh SO hard. She laughs SO hard at herself. I at me. Us at each other. Dutchess is the same way. Can’t take yourself too ‘Sirius-ly’, hey?

I know Freckles is a wee bit obtuse at Times — I am, too — but we’ve really got it goin’ on on a whole other level, baby! Honest we do. I find great humour in it. I do. 😉 lol

I Wouldn’t Want to be Like You

Yo, Evil! How do you like the business end of MY Alan Arsons Project, baby? Dig. 😉

Hey, cats and kittens, welcome to the inaugural WDIZ! Dance Rally! Yay!

Here to give us a funky, kick-ass start is The Allan Parsons Project with 1977’s I Wouldn’t Want to be Like You off their album I, Robot.

I ❤❤❤❤❤ this song. The tolling, quiet, beating scarcity of the introduction builds into a percussion crescendo, which collides with the fullness of the rhythm section. And… Uh, yeah! It’s just SO groovy and funky! Killer, dirty bass line. Funky riff. It all just flows. It’s tied up all nice and tight at the end, too. A fave of all Time and Space. You can’t help but dance and groove. That’s actually the challenge, baby. Uh, yeah. I’m challenging you to funk your ass off to give Evil a run for his money!

Please?

Hey?

Dance?

Yes?

YESSS!

Oh! And Scott sends his regards…

Ready? Dance Rally! Let’s show Evil exactly what kinda Sirius-ly stern, groovy-good shit we’re made of. And how! Now… DANCE! 😜 lol

When is it?

“Hey.”

“Hey, Freckles.”

“What’s up?”

“Jimmy and Dutchess wanted me to remind you and Frenchy that you’re invited to their Halloween party. They started decorating a week and a half ago. They won’t let anyone into the basement. “Decorating”. Uh, yeah. Right. I think they’ve got a Meth lab goin’ on down there, Freckles! Ha ha ha… But, anyway… you’re invited!”

“When is it?”

“Ummmmm, Halloween?”

Chip & Dale

In Comic Relief, Life, Nifty, Silly on September 11, 2012 at 12:31 am

20120910-235708.jpg

Dutchess and I are a bit like Chip and Dale, hey? Do you know the “after you” routine? “After you.” “Oh, no. After you.” Back and forth. On and on. ’Round and ’round.

So. We decide we’re going to grab a bite on Friday night.

“Where do you wanna go?” I ask.

“I don’t care.”

“Well, me niether… sooooo… Anyplace you wanna go is cool with me. Really. Anyplace.”

“Well, I dunno. Where would you wanna go?”

“I’m easy.” *shrug*

“Me, too.” *shrug*

“You know there’s a lotta folks who would relish he opportunity to call all the shots, girl.”

“YEAH?!” Looking at me like: cuts both ways here.

😄😃😄😃😄 roflol

I fear we’re both easy-going to detriment. Agreeable to a fault.

I mean, we’re pathetic. Just… man!

And apparently I’m creepy because I wink all the time in real life? Who knew? 😉 lol

Good grief.

We had a lot of fun.

Holy Maple Syrup, Batman!

In Canada, Comic Relief, Life, Maple Syrup, Québec, Silly, True Story, Uncategorized, Weird, Whimsy on August 31, 2012 at 7:28 pm

You heard it here first, cats and kittens. The Vermont Maple Syrup Mafia is suspected in an audacious heist that has hit rival Québec ‘familia’ right where it hurts, I’ll tell ya. In a gutsy midnight blitz Vermonti commandos made off with an estimated $30 million CDN worth of Maple syrup! That’s 15,000 oil drums of the sweet stuff, kids. A very sticky situation, indeed.

Uh, yeah. No kidding. This is just hilarious!

So, hey? Does anyone know where I could unload a little surplus Maple syrup that I — just coincidentally — happen to be in possession of? 😉 lol

Italian Parliament vs British Parliament + How To Say ‘Good Luck’ in Italy

In Comic Relief, Comics, Danny Bhoy, Just For Laughs Montreal, Lewis Black, Nifty, Silly, Standup, Westminster Parliamentary System on August 10, 2012 at 7:49 pm

The Montréal Just for Laughs Comedy Festival is the preeminent comedy event on the planet. THE planet, cats and kittens. No kidding. It’s by invitation only. It airs on the CBC weekly. Check it out if you can. Lewis Black is a regularanother fave. Anyone who is anyone cut their comic chops there: Greg Giraldo, Ellen, Seinfeld, Russell Brand…

😄😃😄

Danny Bhoy is one of the silliest people alive and fave of all Time and Space. Discussing a pet topic of mine — you guessed it! — parliamentary systems! 😜 roflol Who knew? Everybody, standup! Comedy…

… On televangelists, the Scottish diet, breakfast foods…

… and bagpipes!

😄😃😄😃😄

I couldn’t pick just one routine. Really. I’m a big fan. There’s heaps more, too, on YouTube. Hope you like him and he gives you a good chuckle. There will be more appearances here by comics in the future.

I ❤❤❤❤❤ standup. Just for Laughs in particular.

Couldn’t find the Lewis Black routine where he asks Canada to, “Please, invade my country!”. He’s got SO many great routines.

Help!

In Comic Relief, Groovy, Life, Love, Magic, Music, Nifty, Places, Silly, The Beatles on July 31, 2012 at 12:13 pm

Anyone else have these silly, euphoric moments where Life and Music — especially the Beatles — consort in perfect synchronicity? I’ve had a quite few. This is one. The first one. It’s a James Bond (Austin Powers?) moment, too…

❤❤❤

I was waiting at a bus terminal to transfer and listening to my cassette Walkman when I was younger, so much younger than today.

Bus arrives. Everyone queues. I’m an ‘after you’ kind of girl. So, I bring up the rear.

Mix-tape ends. Flip it. Press play. Look up. Everyone’s on? The driver is waiting on me. Smiling at me.

Oops! Sorry, dude!

Make to step up.

The moment my foot touches the stair the James Bond Theme intro to Help! by the Beatles starts!

Bah! Bah! Bah!

He-e-e-e-ey. Alright.

“Do-do do do-do-do do-do do…”

I smile. Suppress laughter. Flash my pass. Wink. Nod.

Bond, Jane Bond.

The driver smiles back at me just as large? Can he can hear it, too, I wonder?

Wade down the aisle…

“Do-do-do do-do do-do-do…”

Size up all possible threats as I go. Double Agents? Assassins? No?

“Bah! Bah! Bah!”

Everyone smiled back? So? It’s all good. I’m clear. Haven’t been ‘made’.

“Bah! Bah! Bah!”

I plunk down into an available seat toward the back at the exact moment the Lads shout…

“Help! I need somebody!”

Whoa! It was just getting way too Cosmic! WAY.

“Help! Not just anybody!”

I burst out laughing! I just couldn’t ‘help’ it!

“Help! You know I need someone!”

It was an entirely impeccable coincidence!

“He-e-e-e-elp!…”

Perfect!!! Groovy-good! Holy 🐮!!!

Felt like I was in a Bond movie, — or, the as yet to be created: The Spy Who Shagged Me? A silly spy musical with the Lads?

Sometimes, when I’m feeling extra silly and cheeky I introduce myself as ‘Bond. Jane Bond’ because of that.

I ❤❤❤❤❤ it when the canvases of Life and Music harmonise at once in flawless synergy. Très bien ensemble. Beautiful.

Hey, cats and kittens, here’s some Help!

Strawberry Fields Forever

In Comic Relief, Driving, Groovy, Life, Love, Music, My Car, Nifty, Poetry, Psychedelic, Silly, The Beatles, Very Bad Poetry on July 16, 2012 at 6:18 pm

Psychedelic, cats and kittens. Strawberry Fields Forever…

This is an Ode to my Ford wagon, my trusty steed, Strawberry Fields (1991-2008). Had her 10 years. She bit the stardust. She was not ‘forever’. She is no more. Recycled her to be sure.

Fields, oh, Fields…

Fields and me. Me and fields. Batman and the Batmobile… The Lone Ranger and Silver… James T. and the Enterprise…

Fields and me…

Lady Madonna was my first. Strawberry Fields was second. Penny Lane was next, but, didn’t last. Now, I’ve got Jude and I’m holding fast. She’s the best ride yet and her stereo is a blast. 😉 lol

❤❤❤❤❤

A Very Tongue-in-Cheek… Ode to Strawberry Fields

*Ahem 😊 La la la-la la… La!*

How do I ❤ thee
Let me count the ways
I ❤ed thine sparkly windows
With their wide open vantage
I ❤ed your substandard air conditioning system
Like no other hot girl ever
Before or since
Oh! How you sported bumper stickers
With style and grace
Making it effortless to find you
In any given place
Proclaiming for all to see
The ‘Jedi Mind Tricks’
Just, simply, would not work
On you or me
No one else got the law enforcement/physics one
No one, except for you
Because you’re the only one
Fields, it’s true…
And, somehow, your freckles of rust
Could only succeed
In enhancing your appearance
Never detracting from it…
Not for one instance
Like little beauty marks
Oh! How beautiful you are
Your lack of cruise control
Only convinced me
That unlike others
You were not a follower
But, a leader among steeds
And, you led me all the way
You led me to the Vet’s
To the grocer’s and the fair
You led across wintery scenes
Through green fields and clean air
You led, you led
From here to there
Then, you’d lead me home again
Just as safe as can be
So, as I say goodnight to you
I hang my teary head
You’re the best darned car
I ever did meet
And, I’m so sorry that you’re…
Ahem…
Dead

❤❤❤

Traffic Jam

In Comic Relief, Driving, Groovy, Infinity, Love, Music, My Car, Nifty, Places, Poetry, Silly, The Universe, Very Bad Poetry on July 16, 2012 at 12:39 am

Jude and me
From the green to the streets
The War Pigs as they are
Groovy-tough beat to beat

Jude and me
Really funking the Fame
Really be, really, babe
Too cool, but hot like a flame

Jude and me
Tripping lights fantastique
Layla joins us awhile
She’s so lovely, so unique

Jude and me
Cruising, floating along
Everything we hear
Another favourite song

Jude and me
Now Bumper to bumper
In Love with a traffic ‘jam’
Hey! Jack Flash, he’s the jumper

Jude and me
Steve and Joe Walk This Way
Ask us to Remember
A little kiss, like this, hey

Jude and me
The Green Arrow said, “Jet!”
We’ll go for a ride in the Sky
Little lady, Suffragette

Jude and me
The last signals seen
Slipping deep into cool mauve
Through the backlit tangerine

Jude and me
Keeping some Bad Company
’Like Making Love to the Sky
To the Purple Haze, baby

Jude and me
Pushing waves of ’Zepplin
As dusk’s mists start to creep
Green’s lush kiss welcomes us in

Jude and me
The Song Remains the Same
As we go slidin’ through
Infinity, glad we came

Yeah, Jude and me
We’re just right
’Round and ’round
Close and tight

❤❤❤

Ummmmm, Jude is my car. 😊
