Sung to the tune of The Badger Song: A-Coffee Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee Coffee Coffee, Coffee Coffee Coffee Coffee, MUSHROOM MUSHROOM!
I LOVE YOU SO HARD TASSIMO! And guess what? I already did, long before you sent me a brewer of my own. The quality of the one at my parents house had me dazzled, but it was this commercial that sold me on your brand for life, the moment that I saw it:
Robots dancing. You really can’t go wrong.
DEETS ON THE T46:
- TASSIMO brewers range in price from $159 – $269. The sweet T46 in my kitchen retails for $229.
- The brewer’s unique barcode technology reads every T DISC individually, adjusting the temperature, water volume and brew time to ensure a perfect beverage every time – in about a minute. Which is awesome.
- TASSIMO brewers and T DISCs are available at various retailers across Canada. In fact, I saw a stack of brewers at Metro last night!
- You can brew a huge variety of specialty beverages including: cappuccinos, lattes, chai tea lattes, skim milk lattes, hot chocolate, americanos, cremas and espressos. Bonus: They brew Cadbury hot chocolate now. *drool*
Have a grand weekend, kids
I never thought I’d live to see flame-shooting ballerinas on rollerblades take to the stage for a major ballet company — a major Canadian ballet company, at that.
Frick, if I’d known at 16 that this was even possible, I probably would have sucked up the pain and broke in my new toe shoes.
Instead, I quit ballet and started dancing hip hop, sufficiently crushing all future hopes of rollerblading across the Sony Centre stage dressed as a nun in front of Elton John’s husband’s parents. *le sigh*
Last night, I attended the Toronto premiere of Alberta Ballet’s Love Lies Bleeding, and it was grand.
This morning, I attended a long meeting after rollerblading to work with Elton John’s “Rocket Man” stuck in my head. Not so grand (especially that part where I tripped over a train track. ow.)
The resultant meeting-doodles were nothing short of cosmic – as in derpina goes to space. Spacey. This one is my favourite:
This post is not about… my silly sketches though… You know I read it in a magazee-heeen, Ohhh … B-B-B-Ballet and the SKETCH!
Uh… yeah. This post is about what inspired said sketches, and that one is most definitely inspired by the trippy Rocket Man scene in Jean Grand-Maître’s jukebox ballet (set to the music of Sir Elton John and his long-time songwriting partners Bernie Taupin.)
Astro boy chicks in space-blue toe shoes, assited airborne worm rolls, rollerblades and PYROTECHNICS fookyeah. I dug that part quite a bit, but my favourite dance was at the very beginning. B-B-B-B-Latex and the Butts:
Big ups to Xtra Online for that video. Such a classic jam.
The show was at times a bit… gimmicky, but I did find this (sort of but not really a) ballet entertaining as hell. The costume design was excellent, the multimedia set pieces were wicked and the choreography was pretty tight for the most part (said the non-dancer).
31-year-old Yukichi Hattori blew the rest of the company away by leaps and bounds (literally) as the male lead. Jaw-droppingly strong, that guy. You couldn’t take your eyes off of him.
I felt a little bit underdressed at first next to all of the pretty drag queens…
But my homies here seemed to like the skirt:
AHLL MA SINGLE LADIES!
Love Lies Bleeding is only in Toronto until the 12th, so snap some tickets up ASAP, homes – you won’t regret it.
On the 8th day of Halloween, my true love gave to me…
8 minutes of raging (while I try to insert spooky contact lenses in this LOLVlog Review, that is)
According to Erin Taylor-Mitchell, executive editor for ClearlyContact.ca’s blog, the “black out” model is their most popular seller this year.
Something to do with Black Swan, I’ll bet. It’s predicted to be one of 2011′s hottest costumes.
Please, mother, before you flip – These are FDA approved, theatrical-grade, non prescription Halloween Lenses. They are sterile. My hands were clean. I don’t worship the devil now or anything, I promise.
I AM THE DEVIL! Bwahaha….
I’m stoked to have these right now. They’ll be PERFECT for my _____ costume tomorrow night.
That said, I’m not going to sugar coat the process of getting the first pair of contacts I’ve EVER worn into my eyes. It sucked (see video, above).
It wasn’t a painful experience, aside from the part where I kicked the computer desk in a fit of rage, but hot dang was it ever frustrating. My eyes so blinky.
Perhaps if I had actually followed the instructions or taken time to read one of jillions “how to put in contact lenses” guides available to me on the web first, I would have succeeded earlier. In fact, once I did watch this kid’s turorial, I was blacked out within seconds. My mom’s always said that I’m “rammy”. I suppose that might be true.
Like little black olive slices, they look!
All Lauren-being-an-idiot-ness aside, these lenses are sick. Nab a pair here and enter their “Get Creepy For Cash” Halloween contest. You could win 1000 bones, PYAW!
Sleep tight, young child. Tonight, we fly
Now you know more.
