Default Something Silly

I'm not sure what inspired this silliness, but it has some snippets of a few Lightfoot tunes in the 'soundtrack' :

I found it by using some weird search terms.......like Gordon Lightfoot + bacon.

You are correct........waaaaaay too much time.

Google Nelson Eddy.......there's a ton of info.

i never knew about that particular fiasco (aliens looking down must think we're truly idiots)...glad the eyesore is now gone...seemed like a scene from planet of the apes or whatever

wonder how the GL track got by the youtube police...we had a family gathering by Gord's childhood home so I threw some clips together to a Gord track but it was instantly flagged and disallowed...I was kinda impressed actually...it must be an actual human who has this policing job (they must watch a whole lot of crap, that's for sure) as I can't imagine there's a software tool that compares the audio to a HUGE database of audio...btw, nice bridge

thanks for the first vid, love that sort of creativity and wit

ps) wonder if there's anyone one the planet who doesn't love bacon...i guess it's actually more of a sodium love-in

Apparently, not many, if any. I just learned that this Saturday (9/5) is International Bacon Day.

funny vid!

oh and timely...I just bought some nitrate-free apple smoked bacon at Trader Joe's
Saw it listed, on sale in this month's fearless flyer

Had it the other night for dinner -breakfast wraps I made with all-TJ's ingredients. Scrambled eggs, the bacon, dried cherries, a little cheese and garlic-spinach tortilla

i supposed it could be argued that GL has 2 last names

jjo, i've never even heard of that first program (am i the only one without HBO?), i've only seen about 3 episodes of the second (but i plan on borrowing a boxed set from the library and watching them all one weekend so i can catch up on what people have been making reference to for decades!) and i can take or leave Leno (that headline bloopers got old a looong time ago, imo) but i do tape the last 5 minutes of every show ie. his musical guests ...in general, i find these shows very whiney, like Woody Allen movies

BUT guys, thanks for the intro to this David guy, he musts be the quiet genius...i think the should run for president, i really like this one:

http://video.google.com/videoplay?do...40299927345865

ps) some current event comments from jj:
- i like that they made public the names of two teen murderers who killed a 13 year old...and they got 'life' but they can be free in 10 years? ...even cavemen lived longer than 10 years so i think they need to fine tune that a bit

- the Tate killer finally died in prison...that is what i mean by 'a life sentence'...that evens the score for that killing and now she can go to hell in exchange for the taking the life of the -0.5 month old infant

- didn't mean to get heavy on this silly putty thread...talk about an odd justice system, how about this one?:

http://www.miltoncanadianchampion.co...article/280831

and to think i was nervous driving with an open six pack in the trunk

With the recent buzz about Google street view, I thought this was an appropriate bit of silliness :
