I know that I’m supposed to be outraged, or something, by this. But in all honesty…I think its f*ing hilarious.

Perhaps this can be funny for me because the DH does almost as much laundry as I do. Perhaps it’s because the DH would never check a label to see what the washing instructions were, so I would be the one reading it. Perhaps it’s because it’s just funny.

There are many things in the world to get outraged over…take your pick. A snarky laundry label shouldn’t even make the radar screen. Have a little laugh, life is short.


Apparently Gweneth Paltrow will be on Glee this week.  I don’t watch the show, but I have it on good authority that she is singing the following song.  How they are going to modify this to make it TV friendly, I have no idea.

WARNING!:  Do not watch this with children in the room!  I mean it.  Do not watch this if you are my father, or anyone else offended by the f bomb.  You will be knee deep in them if you watch this.


The Scream

I know, I know… it’s supposed to be the Project Runway blog today.  But since I ate a bad something yesterday and fell asleep early with the queasies, I haven’t watched it yet.  Get off my back, I just finished the two I missed while in Cali!

They published an article on Yahoo! this morning about one of my favorite screams.  You may be thinking “How strange, Sarah has a favorite scream”.  But I watch a lot of movies, and a startling number of them include this:


If you have ever seen a Star Wars or Indiana Jones movie, you have heard it, even if it isn’t ringing any bells.

There is a very in depth article about the scream here:  Hollywood Lost and Found.  But the Reader’s Digest version is this:

It was first used in the movie Distant Drums, a western with Gary Cooper.  The movie was produced by Warner Bros., and they used it in 8 movies between 1951 and 1968.  But it was its use in Charge at Feather River that gave the clip its name.  A character named WIlhelm is shot in the leg with an arrow, and belts out “the scream”.

Ben Burtt noticed the distinctive scream, and when he took on the job of creating the sound effects for none other than Star Wars he used it as a Storm Trooper falls into the bowels of the Death Star.  He continued to put it into the Star Wars sequels as well as the Indiana Jones trilogy.  When you look through complete list, it is astounding how many movies this one second sound clip has been in.  Here is a video sampling for your enjoyment:

‘Tis the Season

It is now December.  The month of Christmas.  Other than being the darkest month of the year, it is the “Most Wonderful Time of the Year”.  And in the spirit of a month defined by a Christian Holiday, I thought I would share one of my favorite songs.


DO NOT PLAY THIS WITH CHILDREN IN EARSHOT.  I AM TOTALLY SERIOUS, NOT WITH KIDS AROUND.  Do not watch this if you are easily offended.  Do not watch this if you have a problem with the F- bomb, or depictions of Jesus holding guns.  DO NOT WATCH THIS IF YOU ARE MY FATHER, or anyone else that would be mad at me for even knowing of this song’s existence.  If you suffer from a giggle attack that lasts more than 4 hours, do not watch it again.
