My favorite part about the Oscars was the song done by Will Ferrell, Jack Black, and John C. Reilly -- Video and lyrics below!
|Will Ferrell||Jack Black||John C. Reilly|
|will FERRELL:||A comedian at the Oscars|
The saddest man of allYour movies may make millions
But your name they'll never call
I guess you don't like laughter
And a smile brings you down
A comedian at the Oscars
Is the saddest, bitterest alcoholic clown
|jack BLACK:||What did you think when you took off your pants|
And ran around that racetrack
and you did that silly dance
What did you think?
|will FERRELL:||I thought they'd love me...|
|jack BLACK||What did you think|
That you could change their wicked game?
Did you think when you made Anchorman they wouldn't call it lame
What did you think?
|will FERRELL:||I thought I'd get to have dinner with Jeremy Irons...|
|jack BLACK:||We may not win tonight|
But we shall win the ultimate fight
And I'm not speaking in a metaphor,
I mean literally — I am going to fight the nominees!
|will FERRELL:||I like the way you're talking, I'm sick of this crap!|
|jack BLACK:||Hey Leo!|
You think you can date supermodels AND win awards?
I'm gonna to elbow you in the larynx!
|will FERRELL:||Ryan Gosling — You're all hip and now.|
Well I'm going to break your hip — right now!
|jack BLACK:||Hey, Peter O'Toole|
You're all legendary and English
I don't care — I'm gonna beat ya down
with my Nickelodeon Award!
|will FERRELL:||Mark Wahlberg! Where are you?!|
I won't mess with you. You're actually kind of bad ass.
Once again, I hope we're cool. You are very talented.
|jack BLACK:||And Helen Mirren — You are just hot|
What party are you going to?
|john c. REILLY:||Fellas! Fellas!|
|will FERRELL:||(Jack Bl-) John C. Reilly!|
|john c. REILLY:||(There is) This madness must stop|
There is no need to fear
You can have your cake and eat it too
Just look at my career
I didn't cry the blues
I didn't pick silly fights
I choose be in both Boogie and Talladega Nights!
Don't just be clowns
'Cause then you're just forced
Mix it up
And Oscar shall be yours!
|jack BLACK:||He's right! I'm going to re-read that script about the guy|
who gets lead poisoning and then sues a major corporation --
There's not a laugh in there!
|will FERRELL:||And I'm going to take that project about the guy|
with no arms and legs who teaches gangbangers Hamlet!
|john c. REILLY||Now we're talking!|
|will FERRELL:||I'm gonna lose 40 pounds to play Ralph Nader|
|jack BLACK:||I'm gonna do that gay coal-mining film with James Spader|
|will FERRELL:||Oh I love him!|
|all TOGETHER:||So Anthony Hopkins you can laugh|
But someday soon you'll see
Helen Mirren and an Oscar will be coming home with me...
Helen Mirren will be coming home with me!
i've told myself many times, over and over again, i should listen to whatever music i want, as long as i enjoy it, and others can stick their snooty little opinions up their icky little caverns.
yet i feel double guilty now, for 1) looking around the office to make sure no one is around anymore and 2) because i am unplugging my headphones to plug in my speakers, so i can jam to hilary duff after-hours.
so screw you all! kinda. don't judge. i'm still trying to stop judging myself.
all is right with the world now.
today is the oscars, and in celebration of this fine cinematic day, i've chosen to watch "Happy Gilmore" and occasionally switching to "Reign of Fire".
davin made this video for lindsay and cindy. hunter mountain was fun! my tailbone still hurts though. and i don't even have a tail.
this morning: i had my headphones on, intent on the task at hand. and i heard a male voice say something, so look behind me too see what Mike (co-worker) wants. but he's not looking in my direction, so i look back to my monitor -- then by the top of my peripheral vision, i see this figure looming over my cube. i started screaming and apparently i yelled out "OH MY GOD!"which was a hoot to the ppl who sit in my general area.
I recently got VPN access into my work computer from home, which means I can basically login and work on a mini-screen while STILL on my mac! it's great. now i'll be able to stay late at work, come home, and work some more!
see how my laptop screen looks like from now on... here.
next steps: get my calls forwarded to my cell phone...
