eruthros: Delenn from Babylon 5 with a startled expression and the text "omg!" (BtVS cheeseman nonsense)
[livejournal.com profile] thingswithwings and I were talking about early R&B songs about unhealthy relationships -- there are kind of a lot. And it reminded me of this Sesame Street routine, which freaked me the fuck out when I was, whatever, five. Which I will now share with you and you should totally watch:





I still find this amazingly creepy. YOU GUYS. THE MUPPET LETTER U IS FEELING UP SMOKEY ROBINSON AND PINNING HIS HANDS TO HIS SIDES. OH GOD. BAD TOUCH.

And they even rewrote the song so that he doesn't seem to like it at all -- in the original, at least he's conflicted? But here he's like "aaah I am being chased by a giant muppet letter U."

I checked out some of the youtube comments, and discovered that other kids about my age found it completely horrifying: there are comments from people who say "I used to hide when this clip showed on Sesame Street" and "this gave me the creeps" and "I always thought the U was trying to choke him!"

In conclusion, this is at least as freaky now as it was when I was five. Who could possibly have thought this was a good idea?
eruthros: SG1: Daniel Jackson, text: "I never wanted to be an archaeologist... I wanted to be a lumberjack!"  (SG1 - A Lumberjack!)
For reasons that don't need exploring at this juncture, I just spent a little while googling for images of David Hewlett. And eventually I found the screencaps index that [livejournal.com profile] tarlanx maintains, where I discovered a) that David Hewlett is always having a bad hair day and b) that David Hewlett has been in some seriously hilarious films.

You should check all the screencaps out, they're awesome. BUT I wanted to share two with you in particular:

A shot from My Secret Identity, in which David Hewlett's secret identity appears to be ... motorcycle gang. Or, in my preferred interpretation, leatherboy.

And a shot from Survivor, which I have mentally subtitled Doctor Rodney's Science Corner.
