Do you remember this song?
I was listening to CBC as I made dinner last night and Stephen Quinn played a series of tunes that were nominated for best song at the 1987 Academy Awards. I nearly flipped my wig when this one came on because even though I bloody-well LOVED it growing up, I haven’t listened to it for years, and years.
I’m pretty sure we had it on a mixed tape that I wore to shreds, rewinding it over and over and over again so I could listen to this song on repeat. Well, it and By the Rivers of Babylon.
Holy smokes – I’ve just been knocked over by an amazing case of nostalgia.
Those too are seriously tip top tunes. NO JOKE - 1993 really was a solid year in my musical development.
(I cannot stop laughing at these words that I am typing. I was one seriously strange kid.)
FRIDAY FRY-UP TIME!
Kids these days.
So speaking of the early 90s, lately I have been watching ALL the Kids in the Hall.
Now, I’m pretty sure I’ve written about this show before, but I really cannot stress just how much I love it. In my (very humble) opinion there will never again be anything as funny, irreverent, strange, brilliant, and just plain bat-shit NUTS, as was this program.
Seriously, these dudes are pretty much my comedy gods and I will never not laugh like a drain watching their seriously bonkers brand of sketch humour.
I also may or may not have a massive crush on Bruce McCulloch.
It will always be one of the great injustices of my life that I will never have the opportunity to make out with him.
(But with me being an adult in 2013. I don’t want to make things all weird here.)
(I am back to laughing at the words that I am typing.)
Anyways, it’s pretty much impossible to name my favourite episode, let alone skit, so I will just leave you with the following. AROOMBA!
On Wednesday’s we wear pink.
Yesterday I bought these pants.
They are very, very pink.
And I love them.
I also bought a really cute little t-shirt that is just regular cotton t-shirt in the front, and all cut-out lace in the back.
Basically, it is a very fashion-forward mullet top.
And I love it.
Also: JOE FRESH PLEASE SPONSOR ME AS I PURCHASE YOUR WARES ALL THE LIVE LONG DAY.
I have a stand-up show tonight and I think I will be wearing this outfit.
Because nothing says comedy like bright pants and a half see-through shirt.
This weekend the man with whom I make my home and I are going to make an Amazing Race Canada audition tape.
OH YES BABY.
I have wanted to do this for many moons, and briefly considered trying to apply for American citizenship for the sole purpose of auditioning for the original Amazing Race.
I honestly cannot think of anything more fun in the world than running across the globe with my love.
So stay tuned, as you’ll want to see what happens when you get us two looney tuness behind a video camera.
It might look a little something like this:
In the immortal words of The Simpsons: PRAY FOR MOJO.
Ed’s note: That vid was made VERY late at night.
Happy weekend y’all!
