The preceding video, “Jizz In My Pants”, was logical follow up to the now-classic Samberg/Timberlake SNL Digital Short “D*ck In A Box”, which I couldn’t help but have another look at. I’m sure you’ll agree it evokes the hilariously awful early ’90’s R&B of Color Me Badd which, for some reason, still hasn’t totally gone away…
Okay, yes, I’ve fallen completely out of touch with internet memes and judging by Jizz In My Pants’ 14 million views I’m a stodgy old man now. Apparently the Lonely Island boys (best known for their Saturday Night Live Digital Shorts, lesser so for the movie Hot Rod) have their first album coming out February 10 for which this is the first single. This also was apparently a digital short, but somehow I missed it, since for some reason (Tin Fey/Palin) I’ve been watching SNL again.
More fun from Samberg, Schaffer, and Taccone at The Lonely Island dot com, or indirectly at YouTube, including their awesome Channel 101 series The ‘Bu, where I first saw them back in 2004 and which was pretty much what landed them the SNL gig (not me seeing them but rather their fakey The OC parody).
Also… their failed Fox pilot Awesometown? Wow, these guys sure watched a lot of Kids in the Hall.
I do not enjoy having my haircut. I don’t know why, but I just know I’ve never been too fond of it. One time, when I was about 6 or 7, my dad, in an effort to get me to the barber, promised me an X-Wing Fighter. What I got was not an X-Wing Fighter, but a haircut instead. I may have gotten a Star Wars figure as well, but what I wanted was an X-Wing Fighter. I never did get an X-Wing Fighter. Even as an irresponsible 20-something, when I was driving myself into debt buying Star Wars toys aplenty in a desperate grab to hold onto my youth, I got a Millennium Falcon and an AT-AT, but not an X-Wing Fighter. But I digress.
There was a time when I was cutting my own hair, and I actually preferred doing that than going to the hairdresser/barber/stylist. I did find a good stylist for a brief time (see “40 dollar haircut” when the archives are back up) but that salon is now gone and there’s a Tea Shop where it used to be (although, for a span of 3 years there was nothing there). Frankly, I prefer the Tea Shop.
My wife doesn’t like my hair short, so I’m not allowed to buzz my head down like it was in ‘02, despite the convenience and ease of maintenance. I have to say I’m partial to having not-short hair as well, but it is one of the more annoying things I deal with on a daily basis (another daily annoyance? Waking up).
The house is ours on Tuesday. As most of my Toronto abodes have had nicknames (Queenwest, The Ronces, BOBTown and, currently, NoYo), so too does this one: Lambaby (after the locale, Lampton/Upper Baby Point… that’s baah-bee, but the nickname will be Lamb Baby, traditionally). We learned from our lawyer today that our subdivision’s original plans were laid in 1889, and our street was once called Lee Street.
