    Rainbow Connection Parody

    I've been on a parody-writing kick lately, and today I decided to write one to the tune of Rainbow Connection, from the perspective of Willy Wonka. Enjoy! The Perfect Confection Why are there so many makers of candy, Of chocolate, jawbreakers and gum? Candy is tasty but kind of a waste...

    Rainbow Connection in The Break-Up

    I saw The Breakup yesterday, and at the end of the credits there is a lovely men's a cappella chorus rendition of The Rainbow Connection. I think this is supposed to be for comic effect to some extent because Jennifer Aniston's character has a flambouyant brother who is part of a men's chorus...

    Anyone Heard of This Book?

    My grandma had a book featuring a bear and a mouse (I think) who meet each other and want to be friends, but they run into a roadblock when they discover they have nothing in common. So it goes throughout the book, and they're about to give up on finding anything to do together when they...

    Have any of you ever seen this show? It's on PBS, a computer animated show about storytelling and intergenerational relationships and imagination and life on a farm in 1950s Ireland. I'm rather obsessed with it at the moment; it's got a really catchy theme song too. I just discovered it a...

    A Song for the Pope

    I wrote a song in honor of the Pope last year, and I decided to post it on MySpace, what with the first anniversary of his death approaching and all. If any of you would like to hear it, it's here: www.myspace.com/sammiesanders . :halo: Erin

    Favorite Dedications

    Do any of you have favorite dedications, whether to a book, movie, album, etc.? A lot of times they're pretty uninteresting and uninformative: "for (insert name)". But once in a while you come across one that really impacts you. Unquestionably my favorite is the dedication for The Lion, The...

    Pray for my friend's grandson

    A woman I work with - the assistant manager at Walden's - has an adorable two-year-old grandson, Drew, who she's crazy about, and he's been really sick lately. His parents are talking about taking him to a bigger hospital in Pittsburgh unless something improves soon. I just want to send a lot...

    Habemus Papum!

    There is now a new Pope. I'm a bit surprised it only took four votes, but since it didn't take too long I guess I'm not too surprised that Cardinal Ratzinger was chosen. It wasn't a big shock like when John Paul II was elected. It will be interesting to see what happens next... Erin

    Peter Jennings Has Lung Cancer

    This has not been a good week. I just found out that Peter Jennings, probably my favorite news anchor, has lung cancer. I wish him the very best, but I've seen lung cancer at work and it's insidious. I hope they caught it really early and there's something they can do... :cry: Erin...

    Erie meets Dave Barry!

    Someone here in Erie sent Dave Barry word of a rather wacky incident back in May, and now we're famous! :p Not much of a claim to fame. But it was a pretty funny column! http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald/living/columnists/dave_barry/10171738.htm?1c Erin

    Does anybody have any idea how to go about getting freelance copyediting jobs? Work-from-home kind of stuff. I've copy-edited several articles for "The Bangladesh Journal," which is produced by a professor at the college I went to, and I thought it might be worth looking into doing more of...

    Dan Fogelberg

    I don't know if any of you are familiar with singer-songwriter Dan Fogelberg. He's one of my favorite musicians, a guy with a really mellow voice and tender songs like "Leader of the Band," "Longer," "Run for the Roses" and "Only the Heart May Know." I just read that he had to cancel his fall...

    The Tragedy in Russia

    I just wanted to start a thread to share thoughts and prayers for everyone touched by the tragedy in Russia. I watched it unfold over the last few days and really hoped it would end much better than the also tragic theater incident. I'm glad that many of the hostages did make it out, but far...

    Anyone heard of them? I've heard of them for a long time but never listened to them. They're supposed to be a Christian version of Weird Al. They do strictly song parodies, most of which have some sort of biblical message. They sound really cool, and I know they did a Simon and Garfunkel...

    Star Trek on DVD!

    As a huge Star Trek fan whose favorite series is the original (though I LOVE TNG as well), I'm thrilled that the original series' complete three seasons are finally coming out on DVD. I'm not excited about the price, which looks to set me back about $300 if I should choose to invest. Ick. I...
