Guilty Pleasure Monday

1. The Pizza Song!
So, even though facebook is slowly and systematically taking over the world and gutting our souls, I'm glad it exists because without it, I'm not sure I would have been exposed to this video. I rarely laugh out loud at videos, but within the first 30 seconds, I was gaffawing with delight over this one. Whoever was the genius to spend actual time out of their day to manipulate this, Thank You! You have given me a new guilty pleasure (oh, and the :42 sec mark is where it's at!):

2. Staying Alive (w/a special guest appearance by Showgirls!)
I have maintained for quite a while, and with all sincerity, that Staying Alive with John Travolta has got to be one of the best movies of all time. And I don't mean that in an Alanis Morissette "Ironic" kind of way, I mean it in a "I can watch this every night of the week without blowing my brains out" way. So when I finally got to witness the uber guilty pleasure, Showgirls, I of course squealed with delight that another dance guilty pleasure existed (but with more nudity and homoerotic activities). I even ended up writing a little movie review of said guilty pleasures which got featured on which was listed as a featured blog today on TMZ! And that, my friends, is the power of Staying Alive and Showgirls!

3. Not really a guilty pleasure, but I didn't want to write a whole separate blog post about it...
I was notified last week that I will be competing as a semi-finalist for the Andy Kaufman Award! I am very thrilled and honored. Details to come.

In Summation:
  • Pizza is delightful as a food or song (especially when it's sung by audio-manipulated children).
  • Staying Alive (and Showgirls, although it will always come in second) will be the only things to survive the Apocalypse.
  • I'm geeking out.

Chin up in the air and shaking head with delight: "Watch it rise like a souffle."
