Gin and Topics: Kermit, Celebrating America, and Van Gogh

Wow. For the first time in months, I don’t have a Gin and Topics draft blog post ready for my tweaks on Friday morning.

I’d love to blame it on all of you, but I am dreadfully far behind in my Twitter DM stream and email.

I know I have submissions from Deb Dobson and Mark Wohlschlegel. But Ifdy Perez! Where is your submission?! Are you going to let Mark beat you this week?

Hang on. I have to go find Ifdy.

I can’t find her. Which means Mark is one up this week. Sorry, darlin’! I tried!

Here are your Gin and Topics…presented in the order in which they were received.

5. Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night Recreated in Dominoes. This is Mark’s submission and, I have to say, it’s pretty darn cool! I’m always amazed at how creative people like this are…and how they have the time (and patience) to do something like this. It took her 11 hours to recreate the masterpiece using dominoes and it’s pretty freaking amazing.

4. Super Sonic Boom Shatters Windows. In Brazil, low flying jets created a super sonic boom that shattered all of the windows in the Supreme Court Building. I had to watch it a few times to see it happen, but you’ll see it. Watch the windows. Thanks, Deb!

3. Let’s Join this Kid in Celebrating America. First of all, what is the backdrop they made this kid use? Secondly, well, I have so much to say, but I don’t want to ruin the video for you. He definitely is proud to be an American. But wait! He sings more than one song. Wow. Just wow.

2. Bret McKenzie and Kermit the Frog Sing “Life’s a Happy Song.” I saw this pop up on Jason Konopinski’s Facebook wall as I writing this blog post. Everything about Kermie singing is just so right…especially when he’s singing about pizza, tacos, and pie.

1. The Butt Medley. During our wedding reception (nearly 10 years ago!), we played the Butt Medley because, well, I know every word to I Like Big Butts. Kelly’s friends thought it was really stinking funny and wanted to see it performed while I was all dressed up. Which is why, when I saw this Some eCard, I laughed out loud.

Happy weekend, everyone!

 @ginidietrich I love that song. It is a regular in our house. And sometimes I listen to it on my own because it just makes me smile so much.

 @katskrieger It makes me smile, too!

@ginidietrich @spinsucks Didn’t Kermit commission Van Gogh to do the painting “Starry Starry Pig?” Strangely the pig was missing an ear.

Nice work on the Sir Mix Alot! As a Becki, I got that Alot (hah!). I rapped Joy and Pain on the mic with Rob Base and DJ E-Z Rock. Have a lovely weekend!

Great googly moogly. That butt card would be perfect for my ex girlfriend. She used to sing that song all day long.
 
Have you seen this video of the 12 year old boy talking to himself 20 years later?

¬†@ginidietrich¬†Hah, I think you just channeled one of my little sisters. I know that tone of voice. ūüėČ

 @RebeccaTodd  @ginidietrich It is all part of my not so secret plan.

¬†wow Jack, I think you just trumped a bonus onto¬†the G&T. That’s the best video I’ve saw in a while. He either had 6 hours of 12 year old on pre-ritalin ADHD medicine footage to cut from, or he knew exactly what he was going to say in 20 years.

 @TheJackB Dude! You stole it this week. Man, that was brilliant! Sorry @ginidietrich but that one was wayyyyy better than Kermit but as a consolation not as good as the dominoes.
