Rapper's Delight....

This is the funniest video I've seen in quite some time! If you haven't seen it yet, ENJOY!

Are You Tight?.....

My husband and I are huge fans of old black and white movies, especially what is referred to as “film noir”.  While we think that words and their meanings don’t evolve that much throughout the years, we have found that indeed they do.  It took us a while to catch on to what the actors were referring to when using certain words….for instance the word “tight”.

Back in the 30s and 40s, if you were “tight”, it did not mean you were physically fit and in good shape.  Nor did it mean that you and so and so were really close friends.  It meant you were drunk.  In the Merriam Webster Dictionary, one has to scroll all the way down to definition #6 to find that meaning.  While it states “somewhat drunk”, we feel that it means toasted or wasted.  Why?  Because in the “film noir” style movies, no one is ever somewhat drunk.  Have you watched those movies?  Those people started drinking and smoking the minute their feet hit the floor at 2:00 in the afternoon.   They were not early risers because of all those hangovers!

Just giving you the warning…if you are in a bar or just out and about, and someone walks up and asks if you are “tight” or tells you that you look “tight”, you might want to ask what they are referring to before you respond.  :-)

Age Is Just a Number....

My husband and I are the same age.  Yet I am 9 1/2 years older.
He is 43 and I am 52.  "How can this be", you might ask.

4 + 3 = 7

5 + 2 = 7

I like my math skills!

Mystery Science Theater 3000.....

I love Mystery Science Theater 3000.  I want you to love it also.  I've provided a video so that you can watch a snippet of this cult classic.  It's okay if you don't like it, just give it a know, like that first bite of Brussels sprouts!  As an added bonus, I've provided one of Ina Garten's 5-Star recipes for Roasted Brussels Sprouts.

And now the bonus:

Give 'em both a try!

Personal Jesus....

I've been away from this blog for 2 years.  Since there are 7 billion other blogs out there, I doubt anyone noticed!  :-) It's all good - I'm not offended! It appears the blogger log-in page is much more user friendly and not as complicated to navigate.  Just when I had the other system figured out.  So if you don't see alot of changes in background, font, links, etc., it is because I haven't figured out where those things are hidden in the new system.  Anyway.....

This song has been stuck in my head for days!  I hate when this happens.  The version that keeps running through my head is by Depeche Mode.  When looking up the song to download to my phone (working on the assumption that if I hear it repeatedly it will leave in frustration), I found that there are quite a few versions available.  One of those versions was recorded by Johnny Cash and is my husband’s favorite.  Other artists covering this song include Marilyn Manson and someone by the name of Richard Cheese.

Here are the links to versions I do not like:

In the meantime….~Uptown girl, she's been living in her uptown world….~  …nope, it is still there…~reach out and touch faith~….
