Dufus At The Movies

Wazzername and I sat down and watched a movie this evening - Mamma Mia on DVD. Now I never really liked ABBA the first time around, nor purchased any of their records but I seemed to know almost every single tune in the soundtrack. I now understand the popularity of the stage production, followed by the movie - but I'm still scratching my head over the popularity of A,B,B and A.

Now I don't know what happened to the the svelte and comely A and A, but B and B, the two responsible for what I once considered musical dreck, must have gone on to become multi-millionaires. The movie's definately a feel good film and whoever strung the story line between the songs should be given an award. As should Meryl Streep who was simply priceless in the movie...and she could sing:




And she did get an award. Meryl Streep won UK's National Movie Award for Best Actress. And who won a Razzie for Worst Supporting Actor? Her screen buddy Brosnan, Pierce Brosnan.

Brian Jones

Brian Jones, founding member of the Rolling Stones, was born on this day in 1942. He died at the age of 27, found face down in his swimming pool.
Here, Brian and the Stones can't get no Satisfaction...

Tell Me

I remember seeing this on Red Skelton's TV show in 1964! Red Skelton and The Rolling Stones are an odd pairing but Tell Me (You're Coming Back To Me) is a fine example of the bluesy music the Stones were doing at the time. This is my favourite period of the Stones, the early years prior to Brian Jones' death in 1969.

ABOUT DRINKING WATER

for Dani

The following will probably amaze and startle you.

One glass of water shuts down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a University study.
Lack of water is the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.
Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or
Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?
(No kidding, all of the above is true...) OF COURSE, TOO MUCH WATER MAY HAVE STRANGE SIDE AFFECTS.

Frightening Prognosis

A woman burst out of the examining room screaming after her young physician tells her she is pregnant. The director of the clinic stopped her and asked what the problem was. After she tells him what happened, the doctors had her sit down and relax in another room and he marched down the hallway where the woman’s physician was and demanded, “What is wrong with you? Mrs. Miller is 60 years old, has six grown children and nine grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?” The young physician continued to write his notes and without looking up at his superior, asked, “Does she still have the hiccups?”

"If I Could Put A Label On It..."

In A Jar

An 85 year old man visits his doctor to get a sperm count. The geezer’s given a jar and told to bring back a sample. The next day he returns to the doctor with an empty jar.
“What happened?” says the doctor.
“Well,” the old man starts, “I asked my wife for help. She tried with her right hand, then her left — nothing. Then she tried with her mouth, first with her teeth in, then with her teeth out, still nothing. We even called Evelyn, the lady next door, but still nothing.”
The doctor bursts out, “You asked your neighbor?”
“Yep, No matter what we tried we couldn’t get that damn jar open.”

The Mounties Always GetTheir Staple

Terry Mosher (Aislin) has outdone himself with this cartoon in the Montreal Gazette. In inquiry testimony into the death of a Polish immigrant at Vancouver International Airport it became clear why RCMP officers tasered the poor fellow 4 times. Wait for it... Because he was brandishing a stapler. Yeah, pretty dangerous stuff. The man died as a result of the tasering.

Him

Rupert Holmes is 62 today. I'd say happy birthday, but I wouldn't mean it. Holmes is the guy responsible for 1979's nauseating "The Pina Colada Song", otherwise known as "Escape". He also sang "Him". Not sure which is worse... Boy, the 70s turned out some horrible dreck!
