Friday Fun!

posted by Jamie

In a country in which Glenn Beck and Sarah Palin are increasingly powerful people, in a week in which a redneck preacher with less than a hundred parishoners held the world hostage (and made not only his name but I presume some big dollars as well), I give you some lighthearted tidbits for your reading and viewing pleasure:

The Republican candidate for gov in VT is apparently named Dubie, which makes me think, especially around Burlington, he might get a few votes a GOP-er might not normally get. Yuk yuk.

Here is a very strange and well-beyond suggestive (flagrantive?) ad gracing the televisions of our great and free land full of freedoms that Muslims want to take away from us. I don't particularly like the ad, find it oddly sexual but not sexy, but its weirdness makes me watch it again and scratch my head. One question: does it sell the product? Would anything sell this product?

And here, below is a dance tutorial video, it's not suggestive, not funny, not political, I just really enjoyed it, in a kind of melancholy way. I used to dance. Why do we stop dancing?

"...in a week in which a redneck preacher with less than a hundred parishoners held the world hostage"

Why would the world be in danger as the result of one small group of peoples' actions? I'm not saying it's not true, I'm asking why. It's a question worth thinking about.

Posted by J oe on 9.10.10 at 13:03

I suspect the world was not in any more danger than the day before or after, save for our troops in harm's way overseas. The reason anyone knows about this small group (in my opinioin, of course) is because sensationalism and modern media technology combined to put trivial on a pedestal. And, it seems many people have nothing better to do than be pumped up by sensationalist journalism. That's probably the bigger factor. Without the willing audience, sensationalism wouldn't fly. Seems like it's been that way for forever. Now there's something worth thinking about, don't you think? Why do people like to get so worked up? Is it the adrenaline rush and the emotional high that comes with hot-headedness? Is it an opportunity to vent deeper frustrations? Hmmm.

The whole point was NOT to talk about that stuff, but okay. All I have to say to Joe is that you're either being sarcastic or disingenuous, I hope. HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND!

Posted by jamie on 9.10.10 at 18:50

Joe, leave the guy alone. I'm chilin' with a Zin, myself.

Posted by EricL on 9.10.10 at 23:24

"Chillin' with a Zin" is the title of my next smooth jazz album!

Posted by jamie on 9.11.10 at 9:32

p.s. The dancing video bored the Missus to tears. Hope some others of you liked it better.

Posted by jamie on 9.11.10 at 9:33

I know, Eric. I just can't help myself sometimes.

Jaime - You didn't understand my point. I wasn't being sarcastic. The question is: Muslims have burned bibles and destroyed crosses in acts of protest in the past, and there was no grave warnings about retaliation in the form of violence. So, why would all Americans or Christians be in danger as the result of a pastor and 50 parishioners burning some Qurans? I'd like you to answer that question.

Posted by J oe on 9.11.10 at 10:04

I'd really rather focus on the dancing.

Posted by jamie on 9.11.10 at 22:44

I am agree with your post. I am also a great fan of dance. I like this dance though it is not funny or political.

The first level goes at a normal speed, but also allows you enough time to become familiar with game play. Your goal is to prevent the slithering chain of marbles from reaching the end of the track.

Posted by buy argan oil on 10.17.12 at 9:14

Points of interest on the game board are: the eye symbol which holds the current color of marble and acts as a launcher, the small curled section at the bottom of the eye symbol which shows the next color of marble that will be available for launching, and then the sink-hole at the end of the track.

I would say that even the dances are political, everything is political because everything is linked to factors that can change the policy or not, and it is possible that if we live in a world where there are people who use their political power to harm others.
