I made it into a commercial!

Go HERE and click on "Play Video." (Hint: It's right underneath the photo of Robert Osborne.) This is a commercial for the TCM Guest Programmer competition. I got a really good free cupcake from craft services for my fantastic acting. And don't blink- you might miss me, even though I do pop up a couple of times. I'm the one in the green sweater.

Creative Freeze

I need some help. I bought a pack of fresh, white onesies for the summer, but I can't decide what to put on them! I've been known to put iron-on transfers on onesies, most famously my "Frankie Says Relax" onesie. I need some ideas...I'm drawing a serious blank this time around. I'm thinking I'll make him an Oingo Boingo onesie, and perhaps another "Frankie Says Relax" along with a "Future CPA" onesie or something like that. What do you think? Any other ideas?

My camera broke. It's totally dead, won't turn on at all. I guess that there won't be many pictures in the near future.

Frankie's been a busy boy this week...

...laying tile on the screened porch...

... and reading a little Jean Kilbourne (upside down, no less!)

Everyone should read that book, especially young women; it's called Can't Buy My Love: How Advertising Changes the Way We Think and Feel. In short, it's about how advertising targets women and the insiduous messages that are often hidden in seemingly harmless ads. I recommend it a lot on other blogs when people ask about feminist literature, although it's probably more accessible than your typical academic fare. For those of you not into the reading, Kilbourne actually made a movie of it titled "Killing Us Softly", which is also excellent. She made her first installment in 1979 and has updated it twice since then. I picked up the book and re-read the introduction earlier this week and remembered how much I enjoyed reading it for the first time just over two years ago. Frankie picked it up today and trashed a couple of pages. I wish I'd gotten my hands on it when I was fifteen or so; it might've changed my life at that time. Alas, I'm getting a bit old, but I'm starting my son young!

P.S. My camera decided to die a premature death, so my blog might be a bit more bare until I resolve the situation or until I win the lotto. I think that there's a better chance of Bridget learning to do taxes.

The Easter Fashion Show, Frankie Style

Yes, the shirt is pink. And yes, that is a little tie. What a dapper young man.

And now, a word from our sponsors...

Last night, Juston attended the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theaters premiere. It was a star-studded event, as far as Adult Swim events go. Juston had a great time and arrived home at 1 AM after partying with Tim and Eric, Seth Green, and the crazy people at ATHF. Juston worked on the film, but didn't make the credits. (He's not credited as Dick Rindlesbach, either.) I'm bummed that I didn't get to go, but I think that Juston had enough fun for the two of us.

Juston with Tim Heidecker. When Juston met Eric, Tim's partner, he said "My wife is a huge fan." Eric replied, "And you aren't?" Way to represent, Juston.

Why Do I Always Have To Come Up With Titles?

I caved in and got a bumbo seat. The children on the box look so happy sitting in their bumbos. Frankie looks midly annoyed, but he tolerates it well.

Sometimes I call Frankie 'Bat Boy' because of his huge eyes. I thought 'Nosferatu!' when I first saw this in Max Schreck or Klaus Kinski in the two films of the same name. Love that Herzog.

Public Input!

I know that only a few people read this blog, but I need some help choosing my summer shoes. I've narrowed the field to three pairs...but I can't decide and I can only afford one! Please leave a comment and let me know which ones you like best.

Pair #1 - I think I'm in love

Pair #2 - Love the peep toe concept on a canvas shoe

Pair #3 - Owls!

Your help is greatly appreciated. And if anyone just feels like sending a pair of shoes my way...I wear a size 7. Thanks!
