Gangsta

Was lamenting to someone over the weekend that I haven't heard much good music in the year 2019 but last night thanks to a tweet from NME found this gem (from '17) by Gerry Cinnamon, who has a lil bit of of UK/Scottish cult following...and whose name reminds me of this totally un-PC Dave Attell appearance. You may look up the excellent live version of this song on You Tube, dear Reader, but for aesthetic purposes here and now, I like the video above. (Whups, added Mr. Cinnamon to my sidebar. Don't know how or why it all works but for some reason anyone added to my sidebar, delusionally, becomes famous, so congrats on your addition Gerry Cinnamon?)[Update: Ugh, I've listened to this song 400 times in a row. Don't send help. :-p]

Camping-In-Tent-Under-Stars
++I was going fwd this tweet to my brother, after my husband and I were laughing at it, because my goofball brother and I make Perfect Strangers jokes all the time..but then I realized that my brother prob has not seen Chernobyl and then further realized that the overlap between Perfect Strangers fans and Chernobyl probably comes down to just me, my husband and Delaney. [See also, demo that would enjoy a "Hey,Jesu!" joke.]

++Continually amusing to me how different facets of people's personalities are revealed or expressed  depending on the format or platform. On telly and when doing stand-up Frankie Boyle's a complete inappropriate abhorrent grouch, but on Insta, all he wants is to find the perfect scone!

++Related to Husband the funniest David Sedaris camping anecdote I heard while listening to Dax Shepard's podcast with Elizabeth Gilbert today and he'd already heard the punchline. Rats! Wasted breath.

Sycophant

++Looked up the Common Fig on wiki and the “Art and Literature” section is one wild ride! Greeks/Romans used to use the fig as a central element in puttin’ people down as it was associated with femininity, not only cuz of its invisible flower(?) but because of its similarity in appearance to lady bits:

"One of many explanations for the origin of the word "Sycophant".. is that it refers to the vulgar gesture of showing the fig...[Scand-less!]

Since the flower is invisible, (there is) a Bengali idiom "you have become(invisible like) the fig flower. [Editor's note : BURN!]

There's also a line from a poem by Yogi Vemana:

"The fig fruit looks harmless but once you open you find tiny insects in there". The phrase is comparable with the English phrase "Don't judge a book by its cover."

I think the last thing Twitter needs is more fuel for any flame wars but I for one would like to hear someone drop a classic fig diss one of these days...mix it up people.

++I'm not too fond of this recent celebrity coupling, and I don't know what to do with this energy...so I thought I'd post it here and be done with the whole thing.

++Don't think that I'll ever minimize a map using two fingers without thinking about the Kids in the Hall crushing heads. What if I'm like Anne Hathaway in that Godzilla movie I never watched and I'm crushing a whole town?

++Today has reached unreal levels of clusterf-ck, so I think I'll just post a jovial video of three cute beardos being convivial?

++I got nuttttin' to talk about this week except I read that there are so many dudes...brothers, cousins, uncles, actors, related to the director James Gunn. Look out Hemswortheses! Sean Gunn will be in a tv show called After Ray and one of his co-stars is named Kansas Bowling. Who besides an unusual name has quite the resume and can count Rodney Bingenheimer and Kato Kaelin as friends. Do read!

++You all can keep your Fake Melan-a conspiracy theories..I'm floating a new one about Hozier Stern, a long haired bespectacled multitalent who can sing and DJ. And boy has he been makin' the rounds lately.

++Ooh, Jerry from Jerome's has been rolling out his cute son in the latest commercials. High five, Jerry. Your move, Mathis Brothers.

++These NPR ladies are placing way too high expectations on what "summer reading" will do for their lives. I fear they will be crestfallen come fall.

++Every time I hear Adele sing "Never mind I'll find someone like you..." I picture her saying it in a kind of Jewish Mom putting-you-on-a-guilt-trip accent.
