How about a little bit of THIS to start your week off right?
“Feed the Screen Cap” won my Tumblog of the week designation this morning, nary two hours into the work week, based on its simplicity and hilarity and its not-so-vague similarity to that scene in Family Guy where Peter feeds Tom Selleck baked beans from a can…
But then I discovered Lana Del Who and, well… you guys can share the title this week. Let’s feed a screencap of Lana Del Ray Liotta some baby carrots to celebrate:
Speaking of web hotness, the Freelancer Fred advice meme is pretty solid. Depressingly accurate, which makes it all the more solid.
Third and yes, least, The Grammys happened last night.
I’m not into watching celebrity award shows on TV, mainly because most of these shows happen during the winter months when the thought of streaming sunny Los Angeles into my living room fill me with RAGE — and also because most award shows are boring, save for the red carpet fashion coverage.
You know what isn’t boring though? All of the reactionary web content produced during and after the shows. Those snarky Monday morning blog posts, the hilarious animated gifs and, of course, the live Tweets.
Like many people my age, I’ve given up the passive act of “watching television”. Instead, I split my focus between the TV screen, the laptop screen and the smartphone screen, commenting on everything that strikes me as interesting in real time, discussing it with thousands of other people who are all simultaneously caught up in the very same act of synchronized mass cultural consumption.
The programs on TV have become secondary to the mass conversations at our fingertips. Watch the Royal Wedding on a couch in front of the TV? That is SO 2008.
Well, no… It’s 2011, but only because that’s when the wedding actually happened.
Anyhoo, I didn’t watch the Grammys at all because I was driving home to the city from my parents’ house, listening to intelligent public radio programs like the big word user that I am.
From what the Internet tells me, this is what happened last night:
I wonder what she’ll pull out for the next soiree?
Meanwhile, Katy Perry was all like “La la la, I kissed a girl and I liked itttt” with her blue everything while Gaga quietly clutched a sceptre in her seat…
Easy there, Queen Beryl.
From what I gather, not much else of interest happened on the show outside of one Chris Brown performance that turned hundreds of American girls into insensitive fools and one Andy Levy into a comedian for the evening.
I’d love to go to the Grammys one day and interview some of these people on the red carpet. I’d love a lot of things, like some Habitant French-Canadian pea soup for dinner and a passport photo that doesn’t make me look like I’m about to burn things.
BONUS: Here’s another photograph of my brother’s new cat via my Instragram feed…
And a photo of a photo of my parents at 29. That’s Nicki Minaj’s age, don’t you know.
What a treat it is, after one heckishly busy yet super exciting week (note my lack of blog posts here over the past 3 days) to spend Saturday evening watching TV in my parents’ basement with a tiny Siamese angel:
That’s Mini, aka “Sneaky Dee” — my brother’s new cat and my first fur-niece. She’s staying here for the weekend before heading back to Brodie’s place forever.
The chance to chill with Mini tonight was totally worth the 4 hour drive from Toronto to Chatham. That plus, like, seeing my parents and eating tons of delicious home food.
In total, I’ll be home for less than 24 hours, but that’s A-OK. I needed to see my folks.
I had thought to leave Toronto on Friday right after work but there was a lot going on in the city last night and I was feeling too dancy for the 401…
Last night I found a dancing hat!

NOTE: That hat was a prop for the photobooth at Ford’s Blue party last night. As much as I’d like to take credit for that sick ensemble, I cannot.
I made that little Keekmercial to thank Ford Canada for inviting me to their nice party, and also for hooking Casie and I up with a car to drive to Texas for SXSW. Like, THANK you. So nice.
You guys can totally use my commercial during the Superbowl next year, I don’t even mind
Speaking of things I enjoy, Elsie Larson’s got a tutorial for making your own heart sweater on A Beautiful Mess right now. Colour me smitten and then red:
Dyyyooooooode! I want to make this right meow. I would, too if I knew how to sew and / or refrain from piercing my own flesh every time I attempt a DIY project.
Wouldn’t Channing Tatum and I look great in this?
A link list feels appropriate right now and I’ve got so many to share from this week, but alas – it is bed time.
Brunch with my parents and grandparents tomorrow morning. We’ve got some celebrating to do More on that later later later and lots of links too. But for now, here’s a lulzy wee Jeopardy clip…
Har har har. Hey, it’s Saturday night. You can forgive me for posting something wild
