Japanese fighting spiders

My folly more comedy.  Dylan Moran is one of my favorites.  Black Books is one of my favorite TV show ever.  It is the show that I discovered both Dylan Moran and Bill Bailey.  A gift that just keeps on giving. 

Here is one of my favorite Dylan Moran bits.....not only because it has a spider reference....because it just cracks me up

.....and then the cage comes down.....

Well, he mentioned spiders

so I have to post this on my blog.  Husband and I are big fans of Ricky Gervais.  While traveling we picked up his latest DVD - called Science.  Frog Queen loves when he goes after the I knew I would love this one.  And the set is just fantastic! 

This is a bit about the story of Noah.....and it starts with a bit about spiders.....perfect for the frog queen.  Grab a beer and enjoy!

Yeah, another one

So my current folly is British will find this happens every time I get a large stack of DVDs from Amazon UK :)

This cracked me up...."No mate, it is this kind of situations swearing was fucking invented for!"   I want to use that line, thank you very much.

If have not already met.....may I introduce Sean Locke.....Sean, meet everyone.

I know what will work

I remember a long time ago when I got into blogging, one of the first memorable blog posts I recall is from ShellHawk (at least I think it was her) - she was lamenting on how a blog "written" by a cat was more popular than hers.  Made me giggle and the fact that I had 2 cats at the time (and three cats now) how funny that would be.  But I did not want to do something like that because I was too new in the blog world and did not want piss off any bloggers.

Well, time has passed and I have had the immense pleasure of now knowing said blogger personally, and she has a brilliant sense of humor.  So the worries were unfounded.

Anyway....the idea has been in the back of my head for a while, I even got the blog "Graveyard Cats" attached to my profile....nothing there yet, but at least I have it when I finally get my act in gear and get on that one of my many projects.

Then I saw that Bean from the Itty Bitty Kitty Committee Blog was selected by a cat food company to wear a camera around and be part of a film.

That is it.  If I really want to have a Youtube video that people watch, or a blog that gets more than a few hits a day......I am going to have to use more of my resources and involve the cat.

Since Hal is kinda/sorta famous in the (agreeable very small (less than 50 hits a day) part of my haunt community,) I thought this would be perfect.

I will get the silly cat (sorry Hal), majestic, handsome, and entertaining cat, a video camera to wear around the yard at Halloween!   F*cking brilliant.  Not original mind you.....but I am not proud.  I am in marketing, I am used to selling my soul on an almost daily basis. :)

And in this case....I am willing to sell Hal's soul too.

But my dreams have dashed by the fact that it is virtually impossible to find a cat collar camera!  Seriously, someone lend me some money, we are going to make cat/dog collar cameras for under $100 (and preferably shipped from the US) - we are going to make a fortune....cause I know from market people spend a ludicrous amount of money on their just have to see the set up in my house to prove that.

Hummmm, I bet you are all wondering if there is a point here.....there is, maybe.  I am not guaranteeing that....remember this is my folly blog.

So the other day I was listening to Tim Minchin (I know HUGE surprise) anyway, he does a song that proves this point perfectly, I see that he too understands my is called Yourtube Lament. (lyrics below)

All my carefully measured metaphor

All my flat nine dominant seven chords

All of my shtick

My lyrical trickery

All of those bows

All that applause

All my intertextuality

All my self-aware hypocrisy

All of those rhymes

My irregular times

All my softly spoken sophistry

All my make-up, all my lights

All my photo shoots in tights

All my pretensions

All my intentions

All my glitzy opening nights

All my brow-dependent jokes

All my mirror balls and smoke

All my tilts at wit and whimsy

All my poetry

My swear words and my smut

Will never get as many hits

As Kitten Waking Up

Home Haunters DVD collection

So now that that is all over, can all of you now submit to the the Home Haunters Video DVD set? Please?  Please?

We only have about 10 haunts at the moment. :(  - Thanks to all 10 of you!

There has normally been around 100, if we do not get more soon, we will have to cancel the DVDs due to the cost of producing and duplication.

There are awards for these also....they are just trophies and no fancy prizes that the Home Haunters Association has.....sorry, my budget is much smaller :D  It is all for the fun of it anyway....right?  :)

Looking forward to seeing what you create in 2011.

Really short history lesson

Why does the frog queen keep mentioning the Reformation and "thanking Henry" :D

Reformation? - Henry said f*ck you to the Catholic Church started a new church and ordered all the Catholic churches to be dismantled

....most of them were "unroofed" this meant taking the lead roof off the church to use elsewhere.  Without the roof, the buildings fell to ruin and many were dismantled to build fancy homes to the people that Henry granted the church land.  (that is the really short poor American education version - if someone wiser knows more....please help me out.)

....not that I am all that big a fan of the Catholic church (in fact you could go so far as to say it is quite the opposite :D) but it is very sad to see all these ruined cathedral/church because of the reformation

....and not that I am a big fan of Henry VIII (didn't know him personally) but his decision to break away from the Catholic church (which I personally understand, been there myself much to the dismay of my family) was the downfall of so many amazing buildings

.....the more I travel over there, the more sad I feel

....then I think, man, does that mean I am rooting for the Catholic church? Wait, that can't be!! Oh no!!

......quite a quandary I tell you.  I try not to think about it too much makes my head hurt :D

But this blog is my folly

so, here is another whim of mine.  While in the UK we got the latest Jimmy Carr DVD - now, really, I am not exaggerating.....this guy can offend - even those that don't easily offend.  He has gotten in a bit of trouble more than once for his jokes.  So, you have been warned:
