Q: What do these ten people have in common? (Hover the mouse over their pictures if you don't know who they are.)

MTV VJ Carson Daly Italian hunk Raoul Bova Barry "Greg Brady" Williams Kevin "Not Gay" Spacey Ibrahim "I Have No Idea Who This Is" Tatlises Dean "Superman" Cain Dermot "Not Gay" Mulroney Zamfir, Master of the Pan Flute Director Frank Capra Guy "I Have No Idea Who This Is" Pines

If you solve that one, try this: What do these six people have in common? (Again, make with the mouse if you don't recognize 'em.)

Aussie songstress Natalie Imbruglia Nerd crush Alyson Hannigan Non-Olsen-Twin Full House moppet Jodie Sweetin Nationalist warlord Chiang Kai-shek Non-threatening Korean heartthrob Won Bin J-pop Starlet Takako Matsu

A shiny red Huffy Desperado (with banana seat) to the first correct answer.

(Comments screened for now so you can have the fun of being puzzled / feeling smug for a little while.)

ALL IS REVEALED )

(For [livejournal.com profile] mgrasso and [livejournal.com profile] ivan23, and the meme going around.)

1. You're not the boss of me.

2. I don't care how much I'll regret it, I just want a girlfriend.

3. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Exercise, posture, flossing, rest my eyes. I'll get right on that. No, I don't need to write it down, I'll remember.

4. I don't care how crazy she ends up, I just want a girlfriend.

5. OK. But historians make lots of money, right?

6. I don't care what she burns down, I just want a girlfriend.

7. Listen, what I want to hear about most is Star Wars. Is it really true there are going to be three prequels? And are they totally awesome? Like I even have to ask. I can't wait to see George Lucas work his magic again!

8. OK. But you- I mean me- I mean, we're a Republican, right?

9. Wait, that I will write down: go to the Hong Kong, in Boston, Massachusetts, on November 10, 1999... talk to the girl with short hair, funky glasses (did you just say "funky"?? who are you supposed to be, Jimmy JJ Walker?), and tight gray sweater... How tight are we talking here?

10. Well, thanks for all the advice. Do you think you could score me and my friends some beer?

I was like yeah, yeah, another LJ meme, I never do these things. But then I was surprised by how happy it made me to see all of your little faces lined up in a row. I love my friends.

Also, I am drunk. )

[livejournal.com profile] crisper, whom I have already plugged in these pages, writes as follows:

A few months ago, I had a dream in which LiveJournal and everyone on it went completely nuts for a day. The entire world had turned upside-down and inside-out and nobody was their normal self anymore. And it was such a good read, that I think it should happen for real.

January 27th is the birthday of Lewis Carrol, author of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND. Alice fell down a rabbit hole into a place where everything had changed and none of the rules could be counted on to apply anymore. I say, let's do the same: January 27th, 2005 should be the First Annual LiveJournal Rabbit Hole Day. When you post on that Thursday, instead of the normal daily life and work and news and politics, write about the strange new world you have found yourself in for the day, with its strange new life and work and news and politics. Are your pets talking back at you now? Has your child suddenly grown to full adulthood? Does everyone at work think you're someone else now? Did Bush step down from the White House to become a pro-circuit tap-dancer? Did Zoroastrian missionaries show up on your doorstep with literature in 3-D? Have you been placed under house arrest by bizarre insectoid women wielding clubs made of lunchmeat?

Let's have a day where nobody's life makes sense anymore, where any random LJ you click on will bring you some strange new tale. Let's all fall down the Rabbit Hole for 24 hours and see what's there. It will be beautiful.

For consideration: this only works if you spread the word, of course, but three and a half weeks is forever in LJ Meme Time.

A meme I can get behind.

Frog Blog

I'm absolutely charmed by the lost frog meme, a child's poster for a lost frog that internet funsters have run with a la All Your Base. L & I have been telling one another, "I lost my frog!" "Him name Hopkin green frog!" and chortling over our deathless wit all week. I even posted my own modest contribution to the meme.

Last night we tried out an Akira-Kurosawa-meets-Reservoir-Dogs roleplaying game called The Mountain Witch, which I really liked, but I think I ended up in the minority on that subject. I did make one huge mistake in how I ran it, a rookie error that pretty much mystifies me. In the long run, I think my skin might be too sensitive to keep trying to sell these indie games to our Ad Hoc crew. I wrote a loooong post about the game and how it went on the Forge. I should write something about it for the 20'x20' Room, too, pitching it there not as feedback for the author, but for a more general audience. I feel bad about how derelict I've been at 20'x20' lately. I've still got a half-written post waiting around about my Paranoia game back in September. Say, isn't the 20'x20' Room's one year birthday like, tomorrow, or the next day? Maybe I can do something with that.

I also posted something today for Veterans/Remembrance Day on the newly unveiled www.robmacdougall.org, backdated to conceal my tardiness. Mucho blogging!

p.s. I'll find my frog. Who took my frog?

Which part of "Livin' On A Prayer" by Bon Jovi are you?
You are the Key Change after the Second Chorus!
For love... let's give it a shot.
Man you ROCK! You don't show up until after the second verse, after the second chorus, but you are worth waiting for. Richie's wailing on the solo, right, then he brings it down for the bridge. "We'll live for the fight when it's all that we've got"? Motherfucken right we will, man! Then time for another singalong chorus, right? AU CONTRAIRE, MON FRERE! Because just when you and all your fine ladies are getting ready to belt out another round of the chorus and I'm thinking damn, Jon can sing high! Can that dude sing more high? No way that dude can sing more high? then, BAM! Motherfucken key change! Not a chord change, a KEY change! Jon takes it up half a motherfucken octave! Holy shit! "WHOA-OHHH! WE'RE HALF WAY THERE!" Damn man. You're ALL the way there.

Thanks, everybody, for all your requests and continued feigned interest re: my post of 11/11. I am still taking requests, so keep those cards and letters coming in! One point of clarification: I said I would be taking requests this week. I didn't say when I would be fulfilling them. I'm kinda busy, you know. :) But have no fear, chimps and telephony and sharing and maybe even the fifth Alterna-Canada are all coming down the pipeline eventually.

I will tide you over with one thing, though, since absolutely everyone is clamoring to know: Vicki Lawrence. Of "Mama's Family" fame. Was there ever any doubt? I tried to skew my answers to be Tim Conway, but dude, those quizzes know all.

William Gibson has a weblog:

Bladerunner came out while I was still writing Neuromancer. I was about a third of the way into the manuscript. When I saw the first twenty minutes of Bladerunner I figured my unfinished first novel was sunk, done for. Everyone would assume I’d copped my visual texture from this astonishingly fine-looking film. But that didn’t happen. Mainly I think because Bladerunner seriously bombed in theatrical release, and films didn’t pop right back out on DVD in those days. The general audience didn’t seem to get it, relatively few people saw it, and it simply vanished, leaving nary a ripple. Where it went, though, was straight through the collective membrane to Memetown, where it silently went nova, irradiating everything from clothing-design to serious architecture. What other movie has left actual office buildings in its stylistic wake?

Curious about intellectual life at Harvard? Ever wonder how America's favored sons and daughters pass the time? Meet Strong Bad, the hottest meme since All Your Base within Harvard's ivy-covered walls.

A musical introduction to Strong Bad is here. And Strong Bad answers your letters and emails here. (My favorite so far is the letter called "Techno.")
