out of blog, out of mind

remember that disney cartoon "tale spin?" it was a "talespin-off" (lolzzz) of the "jungle book" where the characters were overly anthropomorphic and lived and worked in the port town of cape suzette. anyway, (air pirates, communist warthogs, club owner louie and corporate shere khan aside) it was a blatant rip off of "cheers." peep this ruckus: baloo once owned "higher for hire" before rebecca bought it out from under him and hired him on just as sam once owned "cheers" before rebecca (yes, same name!) bought it and did the same to sam. many episodes featured baloo scheming to buy back "higher for hire/the seaduck" while sam was often wont to scheme to reacquire "cheers." the sexual tension betwixt baloo/sam and rebecca was also palpable. even their personalities are more than similar; baloo/sam are both sarcastic, happy-go-lucky, loosey goosey rascals while both rebecca's are anal retentive, business minded byatches. if it is a rip-off, no big deal...just something to think about - if pondering early 90s cartoons is your thing.

i can't stand it when other guys can't admit when other guys are good looking. there are about three different ways these mongoloid, dude bra's rationalize the whole idea of their being good looking dudes in the world. first, you have the "i don't know, how would i know if he's good looking or not?" it's almost as if this guy thinks that seeing the beauty in other men is a sixth sense akin to seeing ghosts or sharks sensing electricity. they are seriously trying to convince themselves that they are physically unable to do it. secondly, there's the whole "i dunno, girls like him so i guess he's good looking." this is how jealous/insecure guys with no self-awareness deal with the fact that girl's don't like them. they try dismissing their own unattractiveness as being something completely subjective that girls are unfairly and unjustly deciding on. lastly, there's the "dude, i'm not gay" response. there's really no explanation necessary for this one. homophobes are gay. blogging note: once i transcribe my whole "top 10 hottest female" blog from my 'space blog to this one, i'll also create my own "top 10 hottest men" blog.

which one is it: "absence makes the heart grow fonder" or "out of sight, out of mind?" can you really have two cutesy, notable phrases that contradict each other like this? what is it, "bartletts" that's supposed to keep track of all these phrases and quotes? really though, which one do you find rings most true? i think it's the "out of sight, out of mind" because i once had a long distance thing and i got tired of the poor lady and broke up with her. also, i've been rejected by plenty of gals and i'll just stay away from them or move to milwaukee and i'll soon enough forget about them. however, i think the "absence makes the heart grow fonder" holds some truth too because if you don't see the person very often and you're relegated to the phone and/or internets your imagination will fill in all the things you can't experience in a way that glosses over their flaws or makes them better than they really are - like less fat or less jewish. (racist?)

I very much enjoyed your visual aids for this post. First we had a naked Baloo being all rubbed up on by Rebecca. Cartoon porn is hawt. Then you have, for no reason whatsoever, some support for the Sharks which I wholeheartedly enjoy. And Wayne's World is just awesome. I would have much rather had Wayne's World 3 than an third Austin Powers.

your "wayne's world 3" in lieu of "austin powers 3" may be your most poignant comment yet.
