Let's All Watch Dawson's Creek Together: Episode 16, Season 5

Let me preface this episode by saying that this is The Absolute Farthest From The Truth Fiction Storyline Dawson’s Creek has Ever had. I’d use all caps, but I want you to take this seriously. This episode is often nicknamed The Mugging Episode.

I’ve never been mugged on the street, but I’ve had my purse stolen in front of me. And I’ve watched enough episodes of The Wire to feel knowledgeable about crime, as a white person. And I’m really very upset at Kevin Williamson for even attempting to introduce crime in this friendly way. Seriously, shame on you Kevin Williamson, for making teens thinks that this is how to act during a crisis, this is so fucking far fetched. Other than that, I love every minute of this entire series forever thank you, FP.

Long Time Sun Shine

I recently heard this Weezer song, and I really liked it, so I did a little research, cause that's how I roll.

Rivers Cuomo wrote "Longtime Sunshine" in 1994, though it wasn't released until 2007.  Of his inspiration Cuomo said, "I started longing for the safety, peace, quiet, simplicity and family structure of my New England childhood. I thought back to one of my favorite memories, lying in the bottom bunk, my brother in the top, in our bedroom in our farmhouse in Eastford, Connecticut, in the hot, hot, summer, 7, 8 p.m., sun still up, but having to go to sleep because it's our bedtime, one of those big box fans blowing, and my parents, Ma and Steve, sitting at our bedside, singing an old hippie song to us, to calm us down and ease us into sleep, "May the Longtime Sun Shine Upon You." 

YouTube won't let me embed the Weezer track so click here to listen, or if you roll with Spotify, here.

Also the old hippie song, "May the Longtime Sun Shine Upon You" is pretty sweet too, as a folky lullaby. It's actually an old Irish blessing that's become a mantra of sorts, set to many different melodies. This one is my favorite:

Thomas Kinkade

Thomas Kinkade died yesterday. Thomas Kinkade was the artist who painted all of the pictures of cottages in the woods on the sunniest day ever. He was famous for painting pictures that were flooded with light and selling them everywhere and on everything. Critics of Thomas Kinkade wrote off his painting as mall art and kitsch, as if selling tons of painting to all sorts of people was the worst thing in the world. Thomas Kinkade's technique of filling a painting with light is a descendant of the Hudson River School of Painting. They sold a ton of paintings too. Thomas Kinkade also painted a series of Disney paintings.

When I Heard The Learn'd Astronomer

I heard this poem today while watching Breaking Bad. Gail, a character played by the Husband of the Superfan from Flight of the Conchords, recites it to Walt, the main character. I had never heard of it before and I love it.

When I heard the learn’d astronomer,
When the proofs, the figures, were ranged in columns before me,
When I was shown the charts and diagrams, to add, divide, and measure them,
When I sitting heard the astronomer where he lectured with much applause in the lecture-room,
How soon unaccountable I became tired and sick,
Till rising and gliding out I wander’d off by myself,
In the mystical moist night-air, and from time to time,
Look’d up in perfect silence at the stars.
-Walt Whitman

why i loves the internetz

Is it just me, or is it a fairly recent phenomenon (as in, coming from our generation) that the internet is full of hilarious pictures, articles, and blogs designed purely for tiny snippets of laughter and entertainment? Gone are the days of sitting round the radio, the black and white television, or the flat-screen tv. It's 2012 and we all walk around with little devices pressed up to our noses giggling. I find this....endearing. But also a little creepy.

Yet, I too, am a subscriber to this phenomenon, and today I stumbled upon this little gem. We all have our bad days. Today, Tuesday, has actually been an awesome day since the moment I woke up at 6:35 AM to spend 3 hours painting my nails, curling my hair, cleaning my new cappuccino maker I got for $7 at Savers and discovering that it does in fact WORK. But maybe for other Edzachery readers, that is not the case. So, please, indulge yourselves, and enjoy the following (I am especially partial to the "this is not you" section):
