@DanRegal Has Outed Us All As Twitterholics.

6 May
 Everyone Is Tweeting, originally uploaded by danregal.
 

@danregal was the official photographer by default this past Saturday night at the TweetUp at The Room. Somehow he caught us all acting the fool, Twitter-wise, with his deft camera moves!

I really mean it when I say a) I really don’t remember taking these photos, and b) I really don’t remember taking these photos.

In this latter photo, my Twitteriffic friends L to R: @Davest010, myself, @Phatemokid, @ventesoychai, @paradoxmo (caught in the mirror, he’s in the blue shirt), @lomara, and @brianrubin. Not pictured, but just as guilty: @boxspring, @pfont and @sgoodman1138. @shambot was too busy dancing and doing what normal people do in a bar–have non-Twitter related fun. 🙂

And @lomara has pointed out that, yes, we are all tweeting each other–from across the table. But I’ll say it first–it’s a ton of fun. And the fact that we’re being so ludicrous is half of it.

Poor, Poor MiseryBear.

MiseryBear is miserable.

But it’s truly, oh so funny, à la Happy Tree Friends. Here’s a stellar example about what can transpire when you add an inanimate object to the common workplace, some quick camera movements, and a general sensibility for humor. Can’t you just feel the dry Brit humor in it?

I laughed out loud when he bashes his head on the monitor. And when he gets pissed off at the envelope. I think I’ve seen it 5 times now.

You can follow MiseryBear at twitter.com/MiseryBear, and he has an extended cut here.

Fail!

This is the funniest thing I have seen in a long time. I love it.

Thanks to engnr_chik from my Plurk clique. 🙂

Check!

Okay.

I know that we voted him in based on his policies and plans, but nonetheless, we are the first country in history to embrace a biracial person into office–in a landslide victory, with voter turnout that has never been this overwhelmingly large since 1908!

As a mother of a biracial child, I am seriously besides myself. Typing this in a Starbucks surrounded by fellow Americans, a few days removed from Election Day, I am still so emotional about this that I can’t help but tear up! It is silly, but I am still not used to the idea of it…It hasn’t sunk in yet.

Even Inauguration Day will not suffice.

I will get it when I see him jetting off to important world summits, shaking hands with UN officials and meeting with Gordon Brown for a serious strategy meeting on Iraq. I will get it when I see him getting off of Air Force One to duck into the White House. I will get it when I see our First Baby Girls running around on the lawn for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.

I will get it, and thank God. Because it was high time this this country, this melting pot, got there.

This Chav Is The Father Of Irony As We Know It Today.

Behold, How They Get There.

Spike Jonze has this little hallmark where everything he touches turns, partially, into chaos. I would argue that this little short film is actually about finding love in the strangest of places.

After a conversation with my Plurk friends today, I am convinced that he is also The Father of Irony As We Know It Today. He even does the Mirrorball interview in the faux Chav-like personality he dons occasionally. Check it out now:

I can’t wait to see what he does with the film adaptation of Where The Wild Things Are, which happens to be one of my favorite books ever. The film will apparently combine live actionsuitmationanimatronics and CGI and is slated for release in October 2009.

I ♥ John Cleese.

John Cleese on the importance of Obama being the next president of the United States. He also comments on:

  • Why Michael Palin is no longer the funniest Palin.
  • Why America is the world’s village idiot
  • Why Monty Python could have written the saga of the 2008 Presidential Campaign
  • Why Fox News Channel is the anti-Christ
I love this man. I love him. He never stops being sharp.

I ♥ ♥ Sarah. (This Girl Gets A Double Heart.)

She is just pretty much fanfcukingtastic.
