a wish for wings that work

admittedly, you loose something of the context when you have not seen the previous 28 minutes, but this is a small snippet of the greatest animated holiday special ever. opus n’ bill’s ‘a wish for wings that work’.

Opus the Penguin has one aspiration in life: to be able to fly. Unfortunately, destiny–or evolution–has cruelly left his species flightless… until his friend Bill the Cat coughs up a wild idea. Can a Christmas miracle get Opus off the ground? This heartwarming and hilarious holiday romp–based on Berkeley Breathed’s comic strip BLOOM COUNTY–features a fine cast of comedic actors, including an uncredited cameo by Dustin Hoffman, as a cross-dressing cockroach.

woefully, it only played once, back in 1991 – but with the power of vhs it lives to this day (if i can find a vcr)… oh, and the power of you tube…. to see it all (of course, you’ll want to see it all), go here.

’tis the season

i’m a firm believer that:

is just like:

you can only take so many precautions before the pesky bug is under your skin. as such, at approx. 9:30pm today, i jumped in the toxic lake that is and created my own page.

what the fuck you may be asking yourself (i’m still in shock my self) – would you do something like that for?

well boys and girls in blogger-ville, it’s pretty simple. every band, ever singer, ever musician around has a myspace page – and those pages are frequently updated a helluva lot more often than their own proper websites. as such, if i want to stay abreast (hehehe, i said breast) [sorry, just trying to get in the typical myspacer headspace] of their goings-on and prevent missing one of my favorite singers (see: bad-fan for an example of what i’m talking about), i needed to dive into the cesspool (you see many of these pages are “locked” to outside viewers; meaning you gotta join to see the goods).

check me out: sr_sl

if you happen to be on myspace; hit me up, send me a note – it looks kinda lame that i only have one “friend” there. [my how low i’ve gotten, begging for friends… i need a beer now]
