Angry Chair

Yeah, more YouTubes. If you want incisive and witty commentary on the important issues of the day, you've come to the wrong place, mes amis. You should know that by now, you bastards, especially since I'm busy getting my noggin ready to parler français next week. En plus -- wow, practice does make perfect! -- it's birthday time for two of my musical favorites. POP, get dry, the cake is on me.

Happy birthday, you dead American dude.

Just say no. Except to you-know-what.

Bonne anniversaire, vous dude français mort.

Homme, j'adore Nuages. Quelle beauté éphémère, n'est-ce pas ?

Also born on this day ninety-two years ago, native Clevelander Urbain Jacques Shockcor, better known to you and I as New York Yankee and St. Louis Brown starting pitcher Urban Shocker, a name certainly on the Mt. Rushmore of sporting cool despite having hurled for The Fucking Yankees.

On second thought, I'm going to go hurl.

Speaking of hurling -- I really need to come up with a better segue --

"And a better blog!"

-- ahem, a dude on the bus this morning was hurling his chutzpah around by wearing a jersey I haven't seen in public in a shade over fourteen years:

I see the real killer searching has been outsourced. Damn you, NAFTA.

I have been relegated to actually working this week, without time to visit my favorites. So I surface to this angst - it makes me feel that all is right with the world.

Randal Graves said...

Isn't that the seventh sign? I fear stepping outside. I'm glad the angst is there to counter such labor.

La Belette Rouge said...

I am unable to hear the youtubes as I am not one of those rude people who have their cell phone on speaker phone while sitting in a hotel lobby, yes obnoxious people sitting next to me---I am talking to you.

Anyways, I am constantly amazed that you do school, work, kids, and relationship and maintain the blogging like you do.

And, perhaps to prepare for school you could start blogging in French. That would be fun?;-)

Missy said...

Who has time for "incisive and witty commentary?"

Maybe it is the seventh sign. I don't have time to check.

Randal Graves said...

LBR, hey, tell all the obnoxious bastards that Randal says hello!

It would be amazing if I did all those things well. Since I don't, I just throw crap against the wall and hope it sticks.

Blogging en français. You're funny. ;-)

missy, I don't even have time to comment. But I just did. Paradoxicalism!

Border Explorer said...

May I steal that applause sign and put it at the end of all my posts, please?

Beach Bum said...

If this ain't "incisive and witty commentary" I'm in really sad, sad shape.

Anonymous said...

I just found my French Verbs reference book. Shall I send it to you?

I thought Debussey was Australian.

Christopher said...

Is is socially acceptable to say "French Fries" once again?

Of course, I never stopped saying French Fries, because I wasn't quite sure of what the wait person would bring if I ordered "Freedom Fries."

I recall once ordering Kim Chee, thinking it was some sort of dessert. Man, was I ever surprised when the wait person delivered a plate of fermented cabbage the color of molten lava.

Bradda said...

OJ and Layne Staley in the same post! Well played sir. How's the whole bringing "porch monkey" back campaign going?

okjimm said...

the blog is ok.... the segue need some work.

just relax, watch an Indian's game. Maybe a little hockey. or listen to some Death Rock.

just chill, bro, get you a nice cheese samich, little tomato.

Dean Wormer said...

Bah. Too much french is this post.

Now I have to go by a box of swisher sweets and a shorty of PBR to get the taste of hairy girly man out of my mouth.

Randal Graves said...

BE, what? Steal the sign I stole from some guy on the internets who stole if from a registered trademark of Fox? Sure.

BB, but there's nothing about worldly events!

dcup, je vous remercie, mais non. I've got my 501. Nope, Debussy's a frog.

christopher, isn't that the crap that's spicy as hell? The funky cabbage, not the fries.

bradda, holy hell, I almost shit when that scene came on.

okjimm, my friend, it's almost hockey season. Actually, we're having Chinese tonight in celebration of capitalist totalitarianism!

dean, I give you American heroin addicts and American murderers and you still complain? And have we so quickly forgotten Better Off Dead and the language of love?

Je déteste vous Yankees!

American Hill BIlly said...

I gotta agree with border explorer; I want the sign also!!! I am going to have to watch next time to figure out how to be the first commentor??? Shoot I always get stuck down here!

Wait I'll go be the last commentor; gives me a place dammit.

It turns out Biden got the nod - he didn't really go for the war either (signed on when somebody twisted his arm) but he has lots of foreign policy experience.

Place 'Applause' sign here.

Sorry, AHB, now there's somebody even lower down the list :-)

Non, Je ne regrette rien said...

what did I miss? where are you parlez-vous'ing? another sign of old age ... lack of ability to keep up ... (oh, ouch, I guess that's even worse for you male types) ...

Übermilf said...

I don't know what I'm not supposed to say no to.

Randal Graves said...

AHB, hey man, I look at it as fair use. I bought Futurama on DVD, I can use that damn screen grab.

susan, I wanna hear at least one 'bullshit' this campaign season. Maybe I should start awarding prizes for last comment.

JNNR, tell me about it. A dude, and I'm old. No wonder I suck at the learning.

übermilf, to something. Does that help?

Dean Wormer said...

And have we so quickly forgotten Better Off Dead and the language of love?


Come on over and I'll make you a dinner of french toast, french fries, french bread and salad with french dressing.

Even though you only speak French I'll just talk loudly in English and know you'll understand me.
