I can't imagine watching several hours of video with that guy... I went through Aaron Sorkin's master class, and it was pretty cool. But he wasn't staring directly into my soul...

OR

The Mamet Phenomenon

Ironically, despite a freaky photo, an ad does exactly what it intended - keeps folks obsessively talking about it. Is it genius advertising, or are FF contestants merely desperate to fill the hours until the peer reviewing can begin?

I say we start a protest page for cryssand for not posting Jingle Boobs yet. I mean it just isn't fair to give a story a title like that and just dangle them...it in front of us for the whole waiting period. It'll probably turn out to be a Three Stooges Christmas story.

So this week, I finished listening to Eddie Izzard's "Believe Me" audiobook. Quite an interesting and funny ride, if you like Izzard's stuff.

In the last couple hours, he goes over his most recent "accomplishments," for lack of a better word, and mentions how he was on stage for the play "Race." I'm like "Cool!" Then he drops the bomb.

The play is written AND directed by, you guessed it, D. Mammoth.

He infiltrated everything I care about.

I am vanquished. Dead

Well.

Yes.

Give them boobs. Here. Let's breastxorcize this topic's evil. 

But before you start, tell us: in order to start your parody writing, was all you needed a pencil and some paper? DID YOU BLEED?

Edit: Look at my face. Do I look like a lurker? (Short answer is "no". Long answer is "nnnnnnnooooooooooooo...")

Oh well, what could happen? This is my protest for cryssand posting their story for Round 2 but not linking to the story. So we can't read the story titled, Jingle Boobs. How cruel is that? Here is my augmentation of the song, Jingle Bell Rock. It is now titled, Jingle Boob Romp.......

The Jingle Boob Romp

Jingle boobs, jingle boobs, jingle boobs rock

Jingle boobs swing and jingle boobs bring
Cuddling and juggling cup-sizes of fun
Now the jingle romp has begun

Jingle boobs, jingle boobs, jingle boobs rock
Jingle boobs bounce and jingle boobs flounce
Jaunting and flaunting in Jingle Boob Square
It's a lovely pair.

What a bright time, it's the right time
To romp the night away

Jingle boob time is a good time
To go bouncing on a horse with no sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet
Jingle around the block

Swing and jingle as we ride down the street
That's the jingle boob,
That's the jingle boob
That's the jingle boob romp
