Dave Brubeck Quartet - In Your Own Sweet Way

Dave Brubek died today at age 91. In Your Own Sweet Way is quietly romantic. It's not especially complicated, but its tender sentimentality gives way to confidence while preserving the kind of humility that assured specialness affords. A little like great love.

I have a huge crush on John Boehner !

One thing my readers may not know about me is that i have a HUGE crush on John Boehner.

Well, it's really on the whole "Gang of Seven:"

But here's a video of my heart-throb John, talking about how it's impossible for Congress to do what it's supposed to do, considering how it was set up. The compromises of 1820 and 1850 were flukes!

Gyed-Blay Ambolley

The CPSaysWatchThis hijacker (who labels himself the UCO) has been identified. But he has fled the country. Justice will have to wait until late January, when I hope all the Watch This fans will unite to take down the perpetrator.

And for the record, I did hate the post very much. Today though, Gyed-Blay Ambolley talks about donuts!

Monday, January 2, 2012


today CPSaysWatchThis is GOING ROGUE because CP stayed logged in on an unidentified computer. i, the unidentified computer owner (UCO) am now going to try to post a video that is the most possibly inappropriate video i can find, that CP will hate.

it features a man named Gersh Kuntzman urinating, talking about urinating, talking about "doling out punishment" on a toilet, talking about how much margaritas make you have to pee, all in the supposed name of eco-journalism? somehow?
