Words Are My Favorite Toys

July 7th, 2006


Usually the ability to find ANYTHING on the internet is a source of great amusement and comfort for me.

But sometimes I run across things that make me look skyward and ask “Why, O Lord, Why?”

This is one of those times.

Behold Jamar Nicholas’ collection of sketches of plus-sized Wonder Women.

Music Video Madness

It’s that time again, time for Music Video Madness, the WTF?? edition. Don’t get me wrong, I like these videos. Even so, you have to admit that there’s something about each of them that elicited a WTF? the first time you saw it.

Culture Club - Karma Chameleon

Okay, hands up everyone who thinks Boy George would have survived one day in Mississippi in 1870.

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - Don’t Come Around Here No More

This video caused some controversy when feminist groups objected to Petty cutting and eating the Alice cake. Of course, the video was equally objectionable to those who wore oversized top hats and used bathtub-sized teacups.

The Cars - You Might Think

Ric Ocasek did a great job of acting like an emotionless rod in this video. Oh wait, he wasn’t acting…

Styx - Mr. Roboto

Dennis DeYoung. Rock opera. And that’s all I’m going to say about that.
