    I was in the middle of a dream where I was on stage about to launch into a karaoke solo when the phone rang early this morning.

    Anyway.. to actually be tangentially on topic I have been watching Weeds because of the Orange connection. Had seen only one ep before. Now in Season 5 and am honestly only watching it for Celia at this point as the rest of it is alternately boring me and enraging me. I hope that the second season of Orange doesn't do that whole spinning out of control in our ever increasingly hard to get out of plot enormities.. like I know we can figure out how Piper won't end up shipped off and imprisoned for years after beating the crap out of Pennsatucky. Corruption, that fixes that plot hole. I just hope it doesn't end up with more and more "this would NEVER happen" moments or even worse ZANINESS. Please Orange, do not descend into zaniness.

    On the up side Orange is definitely a huge cut above Weeds writing/observations wise.

    Thank you!! Consider it done. It will be my life's mission ;)

    If someone wants to pay me for that celebrity, fine :hugegrin:

    I don't think it's actually a real joke but I found this on reddit..

    "So a penguin and a farmer walk into a bar. The penguin starts eating the tiny fancy drink umbrellas. The Bartender says to the Farmer, "Hey, your eggplant's gotta pay for those." And so the Penguin says "Dude, he's not an eggplant, he's retarded."

    Not that I get it but.. There are several versions floating around.

    And I just realised that it doesn't match what she's saying, never mind.

    In Oitnb, red says:

    "So the third time, same thing happens. So the farmer looks at his wife, then back at the penguin and finally the penguin goes: He's not an eggplant, man, he's retarded."

    Later when she goes back to the "ladies"...

    ".. and the penguin goes, he's not an eggplant. He's retarded. It's fucking funny!"


    Yep, it's horrible. Especially the youtube/google thing.. I mean come on, let us have some privacy. One of the reasons I'm not that in to social medias anymore.


    Thank you all for the kind words of my videos! Kind of overwhelmed that people liked it so much. I now have over 4000 views combined (according to youtube)

    And thanks to delenn13 I now have tags and descriptions on them :) Plus a link to this thread, so maybe we can get some traffic here aswell!


    Re: the scientology/prepon thing: That's terrible if some other "influence" is keeping her from playing the role. I mean, she obviously doesn't have a problem with it and I can't imagine netflix not wanting to keep her on.

    Alex is my least favorite character so I'm only sad about it for other people. They can cry on my shoulder if they like but I'll be eating the funeral sandwiches while I make there there sounds.

    Re: Oversharing. It drives me crazy every time I buy something from Amazon and they ask me if I want to tell my friends what I just bought.

    HELL NO! :scream:

    If they are so all fired interested in it, they can come over to the house and see it for themselves! :klingon:

    Re: The Scientology / Prepon thing... :rolleyes: Or more apt... the AFTERELLEN.com "thing". :sigh: It drives me crazy, this "journalism by repeating someone else's musings ad infinitum until people think its a fact and not just some one's idiotic musing.

    I have no knowledge of Prepon's personal beliefs, or of her connection with the C-o-Sc, however, after the first month of OitNB's release, Prepon was EVERYWHERE promoting the show and speaking opening of the sexual orientation of the 2 main players in this drama/comedy. She's joked how lesbians BEFORE OitNB would hit on her in bars, and her curiosity at how often it would now occur after the show was released. (The famous.. "I'm catnip to Lesbians" quote.)

    She's been frank that she has Gays and Lesbians among her friends, and hangs at one of the largest gay bars in LA since one of her friends runs it. When the Supreme Court was set to rule on the Defense of Marriage Act...she told one interviewer that it was "about time" for the laws of the US to change so that marriage could be offered to Gays and lesbians too.

    Does that sound like a woman who would let the Scientology leadership dictate to her, what TV series she should work on? :vulcan:

    Heck its not like she's being primed to be the next Mrs. Tom Cruise... that perk is supposedly being offered to one of her "friends". (Lets hope its not one of the Lesbians, or Tom and the Church will both be in for a rude awakening.) :rommie:

    Since I don't get the sense from Laura that she would cave into such pressure, I think its not just irresponsible for the Afterellen blogger to make such a speculative accusation, I think its downright mean. :thumbdown:


    Over here, we have more funeral salads than sandwiches. Pasta & potato salads, baked beans, meatballs, chicken wings and chocolate chip cookies.

    It is about comfort food, after all.

    Feel free to pat me on the head and say, "There, there."

    You like Larry :cardie: more than you like Alex???? :wtf: :eek: :wtf:

    :brickwall: Let the Zombie apocalypse begin.

    No one could possibly like Larry more than.... anyone. Since rewatching a few of the episodes, I disklike him even more. :barf2:

    No I didn't get that feeling from prepon either.. Probably bullshit, as usual.

    Larry isn't a person. He doesn't count when making lists.

    I think ???? Madzilla said a few weeks ago she was a Larry fan... but if so then she and Teacake may be the "only" ones in the wide world who do. :alienblush:

    Because, well, as the boy said....

    http://statigr.am/p/547766945043255534_26310067 ;)


    Finally, another decent P/A video.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TBA3i4Eibk

    [yt]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9TBA3i4Eibk[/yt]


    Hmmm.

    This vidder also made another one I like and have posted.



    I think this next vid is one of the reasons why I prefer P/A vs P/L... bear with me.

    Alex IS a criminal. She is not only a Bad Ass... she's a "bad guy" and one of the things that's "catnip" to many women is the need to "save/rescue" the bad guy from themselves.

    Larry is just a jerk. Its hard to save a jerk from themselves.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iP6LAWWhOJk

    Somehow, despite her criminal behavior, despite her "turning Piper into the law... I SUSPECT Alex has an underlying vein of honor, one that needs nurturing despite Alex's best attempts to hide from it.

    When Larry was pissed off at Piper, he went on a national radio show and spoke of all the things she told him in confidence, thereby making her a target for potentially unstable people in the prison with her. I'm AMAZED he didn't tell the story about Pornstache groping her or leering at her while she changed clothes. (Maybe he can self censor when he wants to do so.)

    [yt]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iP6LAWWhOJk[/yt]

    When Alex was pissed at her early in their prison sojourn... she stood up to Tiffany in the laundry room, threatening her with Unspeakable things for a born again rampant heterosexual... to SHUT her the F-UP about Piper. A comment that placed her SELF in danger from the unstable elements behind bars and got her stuck in the dryer, broke her glasses, lost her the poor excuse for a mattress and who knows what else had Piper not distracted Tiffany from her pursuit of Alex revenge by getting Tiffany thrown into the Psyche ward.

    Speaking of pornstache.. You know that voyager episode where the doctor tampers with his own program and becomes some evil version of himself? Or should I say a creepy version of himself.. He would make a great pornstache.



    No one would make a great larry.. Not even larry. :devil:

    Wellll, if Alex is your LEAST favorite character on the show and you aren't sad to see her go... ;) one would naturally assume that means you prefer LARRY in the "Who will win Piper's heart" Sweepstakes. :p

    "Everybody (EXCEPT TEACAKE & LARRY) Loves me."

    I KNEW I didn't like that Voyager episode for a reason. Dr Pornstache.... :evil: yes.. the Mr. Hyde version of the EMH. (That's a name I bet the EMH never considered! :lol: )

    Teacake's comments about WEEDS has really put me off trying to watch that series. Many others have suggested (in various blogs/forums) that WEEDS lost focus after the first season and were fearful at what that portended for this show.

    The actresses are all very gungho about season 2 so far, so lets cross our fingers... then again my fingers are already tired from being crossed these last 6 weeks over the "Alex" thing.

    I'm pooped out. :rolleyes:

    Drove 7 hours yesterday and already sat through nearly five hours of class this morning with another 5 scheduled for tonight which MEANS I'll have to wait for OUaT's season 3 premiere until tomorrow night.

    (its kosher... its multifandom OitNB & OUaT, among many others)

    ARGHHHHHH!!!!!! :klingon:

    Don't know who this lady is... but she's tired of being frustrated... "enough is enough"... and misses Mary Tyler Moore. ;)

    I do think she's right about one thing...this song would do well on OitNB's disco karaoke night... :lol:

    I just about died when I read this,... until I got further into it and realized SOMEONE has a sense of humor.

    Teacake... did YOU write this???

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/oren-mendez/orange-is-the-new-black-a_b_3773122.html

    Some interviews are amazing, in hindsight. This is an old one with Jenji Kohan.

    http://collider.com/jenji-kohan-orange-is-the-new-black-interview/

    Is THIS answer prophetic? :vulcan:

    Is there anyone you didn’t get to explore as deeply in Season 1, that you’d like to get to in Season 2?

    KOHAN: Yeah, there are a bunch. I want to look into Black Cindy and Lorna and Yoga Jones, who told us a story, but you don’t see it. There are so many. Next season, I’d love to bring in new characters, just so we can tell these stories that we want to tell, if it’s not through someone already there. It’s a great control, for the production. It’s like, “If you don’t behave, you could get out of prison.” Everyone has to be nice.

    Okay, let me clear this up before I develop a reputation.

    1. I don't/didn't count Larry at all because he is one of those sniveling support characters who only exist to show you qualities in the other characters AND he is outside the prison so I kinda forget about him except when his name comes up and I reflexively go ewwww Larry.

    2. I don't care about Piper's heart at all. Seriously if Piper, Larry and Alex disappeared from season 2 I probably wouldn't even notice for several episodes.

    SO THERE I HAVE FIXED THIS

    Poor Chakotay.... or should we call him Diablo? :guffaw:

    I agree with Teacake on this subject... hearing "Janeway" spout "Red's witticisms" is great.

    But remember ONE thing.

    Do NOT... I repeat... do NOT have Janeway reproduce the kitchen gravy, Pornstache scene.

    Janeway would have laid that sucker OUT! :p

    Okay... and here I thought you only had an anti-Alex compulsion.

    I seriously worried about you being in the pro-Larry camp. :shrug:

    Of course, we all know the REAL reason you want to get rid of Larry/Piper/Alex. :rommie:

    Yes JRulez you are correct. This show should and IS GOING TO BE all about Red and a sizable portion of the more boring or pukey in a bad way characters (ie, not pennsatucky) will be GONE by the end of season 2. All those extraneous boring people, starting with Piper and Larry and Alex and moving onto that "romance" relationship between the guard and inmate. And Red will end up in more and more scenes until people won't even remember that this was a story about Piper (who?)..

    And in Season 3 the name of the show will be changed to Red is the New Black.

    AND WE WILL ALL BE HAPPY

    But will Pennsatucky be as interesting without Piper and Alex to rail against? :rommie:

    I will not be upset to see the "romance" between the guard and the inmate to go away, and just HOPE she isn't pregnant! :crazy:

    What do you think Red's going to do to get her kitchen back????? :confused:

    More critics "I the know" weigh in on the show.

    http://articles.chicagotribune.com/...per-kerman-chicago-legal-advocacy-prison-life

    In defense of "not enough crying".. Piper snd her friend, the crying lady did enough of that on the phone, and we saw it hsappen with Nicky/Tricia before the OD and Nicky/Red after the OD.

    Also... no-one can forget what Maria looked like when she returned from the hospital without her baby, so they really shouldn't say the estrangement from children haven't been addressed.

    Don't watch this one, Teacake. :vulcan:
