Temporary White Flag



Today is supposed to be a big holiday for me: the first day of the NCAA tournament. However, when I slogged over to the hotel tonight to finish the Movie Marathon column I saw that only people who entered my pool either are now or used to be dating me.

Add to that the fact that no one was interested in the secret picture writing project, and that virtually no comments have arisen from the Movie Marathon, and well, I'm no longer in a happy place. I'm not even in a "hypey" place.

I'm just very depressed.

I know I should not care how much you all care, but, much like a teenage girl, my self worth are very tied to the feelings of others, and that's almost as depressing as the original sadness that nobody likes me.

See, now I'm whining!

So, I'm going to forgo finishing the Movie Marathon, at least for now. The silence is deafening, and I hear you loud and clear. Instead feel free to read Tobias's accounting of himself, as he returned to Monkey Barn today. And for those of you who just hate reading, I have two Top Ten lists from last year, which you get to listen to! It's all about Cartoon Theme Songs.

And maybe I'll try again tomorrow.

{From March 16 and 17, 2006....}

I'll let the cat out of the bag early: tomorrow's big Top Ten list was going to be on Cartoon Theme Songs, AND, it was going to be audio. However, listening to the nearly 100 candidates, I realized I had to break it up some, or I'd never be able to do a top ten list.

So, getting an early jump, today I have the top Instrumental Cartoon themes. But before we get there, I thought I'd throw a sop to girls. You have to feel sorry for girls; their cartoons pretty much sucked. For example: She-Ra was pretty cool, until you realized she was an exact He-Man clone, except for breasts.

[I apologize in advance for the sound. It was nearly impossible to find the tracks, they they had to play out of my crappy speakers into a phone, and then through a server and your speakers...]

Anyway, the following are the Five Least-Awful Theme songs in Cartoons for Girls

#5 My Little Pony - I loathed this show, but if I don't put it on I'll have angry sisters

#4 Strawberry Shortcake - Too bad we can't eat her

#2 Rainbow Brite - Though he'll heatedly deny it, I once caught my brother Achmed watching this show. For real.

#1 Jem - When it comes right down to it, she is truly outrageous.

now the Top Five Cartoon Themes (Instrumental)

#3 Tom and Jerry - I hated Jerry

#2 The Simpsons - I too am shocked this isn't #1. I should put the Itchy and Scratchy theme here too. Sigh. Maybe a week of Simpsons' songs

and the #1 Cartoon Theme (Instrumental) of all time is.....

#1 Loony Toons - When it comes right down to it, this is the best classical music in 40 years

Up Tomorrow: the biggies: Cartoon songs you can sing to!


{And through the magic of cutting and pasting.....}


Continuing from yesterday, I have before you the top ten Cartoon theme songs (that you can sing along to). Except, I couldn't narrow it to ten. So, in honor of the NCAA tournament, I got it down to 16. You'll notice the Gummi Bears and ThunderCats didn't make it; that's because they suck. Honorable Mention goes to Freakazoid, Dark Wing Duck, George of the Jungle, Woody Woodpecker, Spongebob, Fat Albert, Alvin and the Chipmunks, Rescue Rangers, Jetsons and Tale Spin.

To make things even more interesting, I'm not listing what each number is. Instead, you can figure it out from my comment, or just listen (in which case the comment will make more sense)

Dude. I can't join your NCAA thing, both for my probation officer's sake and the fact I've never dated you.

I'll sign up, as long as you don't rat me out and keep yo' hands to yo'seff.

Looney Tunes, agree alltheway. Those guys were hardcore quality all around, until Bill Lava took the baton. Bleah.

But Futurama has GOT to be better than HM, especially the Bender Beatbox version.

I went to a church once, the Animaniacs was their de facto theme song. We tweaked it to 'charismaniacs' - some, er... interesting times there.

Hey, I've been doing the NCAA pool with you for years, so you'd better not punk out. Also, I am doing the secret picture thing with you, so quit your pouting.
