Something That I Do

This last episode of Glee had Marley singing the song Wrecking Ball -- I realized it must be the much-noted but, until now, unheard song by the notorious Myley Cyrus. I thought to myself, "Hey, this isn't a bad song. I might be willing to download it." And then today, while they still had the music in (since we had a party this week, our supervisor who runs karaoke brings his system in), one of the Pandora stations we had on played the original by Cyrus.

And I thought, "Well. That's... ordinary." I realized that Cyrus must be making such a production of herself with the clothes (or lack thereof) and hair and tongue to cover over the fact she really can't sing. She has to keep the career going somehow. The girl on Glee kicked her ass on that song.

In re-watching The Pandorica Opens and The Big Bang, I wonder anew (knowing what we know now) how it was River still existed when Rory had been erased from all time.

They never called about my tire, so I'm guessing it hasn't arrived yet, so Idris will go into the shop with the spare tomorrow, and likely won't be fixed until Monday, at least (I'm guessing to sand and repaint the hood will take a few days).



The (Creepy) Danish Royal Family.

I have NO idea!!! Vandalism does confuse me, especially blind like this. I have no reason to think I knew these kids or they knew me -- it certainly doesn't look targeted at all, so...???? Who knows!

I saw the Danish Creepy Family, and thought, "Well, that's unusual."

Oh, poor Idris.

Those are adorable little birds. They look like the peach-face lovebirds my ex-brother-in-law had.

They are, in fact, peach-faced lovebirds! When we first started seeing them in the park, Barb looked them up, and it turns out that Phoenix just happens to be a perfect place for them to live, so when some escaped from their owners (sometime in the mid-90's, they think), they went native and have become pretty widespread in the Phoenix valley. Barb says they are of the parrot family, so we tend to call them "little parrots."

that portrait is creepy. Poor Idris. I've never understood randomly tagging vehicles though I more often see it on 18 wheelers

I had two thoughts about MIley. My radio just started playing her last week, Wrecking Ball and I thought, it's not a horrible song but yeah all the negative attention getting is a cover for her lack of talent (which she shares with her father)

Yeah, I thought "Wrecking Ball" was a really good song when the character sang it on Glee -- but Miley's version was pretty meh.

Billy Ray did a few good songs when he got away from the Achy Breaky days. (The album "Some Gave All" is really good.) He was never great, but reasonably solid country when he put his mind to it.

Yeah, I think Billy Ray's real problem was so much exposure on that silly song. Sort of left a lasting aftertaste to his career

Exactly. I have to admit I never saw his show, so I don't know how he was as an actor; I have seen Miley, and she's actually a much better actor than she is a singer. She should focus on acting. (And not just like a wild kid who can't keep her tongue in her mouth.)

I didn't know he did either. I haven't seen Miley act. I DID however use her tongue wagging thing as a way to describe tardive dyskinesia much to the delight of my pathophysiology students who agreed, she looked more like she was hopped up on Haldol than she did sexy

Poor Idris. Probably vandalism of opportunity. Jerks.

The portrait of the Danish royal family is creepy because they have Damien standing in the foreground. =8-0
