Now that I’ve gotten that out of the way (the announcement of the fluid, that is; it remains in my head), I saw Jonathan Coulton and They Might Be Giants on Friday. Also I saw Sabrina, Wendi and their friend (sorry, friend, I didn’t catch your name), but that was at Five Guys.
Jonathan Coulton’s set was sadly shorter than I’d hoped, but all of it was delightful. The best part was Re: Your Brains, where we all sort of awkwardly sang like zombies. It’s even more awkward when you’re standing by yourself.
After that I located ESC and Hockey Mom, and then was They Might Be Giants, who showered us with confetti three times (some of it was glow-in-the-dark). We three were all very pleased to notice that the sock puppet portion of the show (oh, yes – sock puppets) involved hand-knit sock puppets.
Then, after pretty much everybody got tsk-tsked by the security guys for taking unauthorized photos, TMBG brought out Homestar Runner (also a puppet) and I got this amazingly crappy video (I need a new camera in the worst way):
Yeahhhhh. But it was at the request of TMBG, for a crowd-sourcing experiment. It’s a pretty blue color, at least!
Then Saturday and Sunday I kind of laid around the house feeling sorry for myself (please refer to the above reference to head full of fluid), and watched the Oscars with the CG.
I must say – there’s something immensely satisfying about watching The Dude accept an Oscar.
Yeah, you know? And it really seemed like the Dude wasn’t you know, like, a character but more like Jeff Bridges just being…Jeff Bridges…man.
Incidentally – Frank also loves TMBG. Talking point!
Yay! Perhaps one day we will forget how much of a jerk I was at Legal Seafood back when (or maybe I just perceive myself as being a jerk – “I’ll buy you dinner! PSYCHE. I can’t expense it. Too bad!”
