An Exciting New Feature of Three Bulls!

ombuddy seal of approval

Introducing the Ombud… Seal of Approval (OSA)!

Do you, gentle and not so gentle readers, often find yourself approaching new Three Bulls! posts with trepidation verging on fear?

Do you find yourself wondering:

Enough of these content laden posts

I am a little bit fearful that liking this scene from the WWI Betty Grable film The Pin Up makes me a gigantic Fascist, and leaving aside the issues of fetishizing militarism, if we view the film from the WWII propaganda perspective as it must be, the scene is completely astounding. What starts to play out as a military-themed musical number turns into an extended and totally surreal meditation on who knows what. Note how the space becomes altered in that the exercise has limitless boundaries and the collapses again to the night club at the very end. Can you imagine anything like this, or a scene extended in such a way in a modern film, especially ending the film?

Upside Down You’re Turning Me

Three B! certified non-partisan Wedding Planning and Entertainment Services Inc. are now inc.

We shall be denounced in certain quarters as collaborating with the enemy to pitch planning this fabulosity, but we counter such criticisms with the simple fact that one cannot collaborate with non-partisanship. One merely is. It is the world that conspires against our non-alignment.

If I might dip a toe into a serious sock for one nanosecond, I understand that it seems ever so easy to view those others amongst us who we might render hypothetically flightless akin to reality show characters in a broadly drawn, psychedelically colored cartoon. When their every action conforms simultaneously to what they consider performance art and what we consider performance art in the opposite way it makes it so much harder to consider such a person to be real. However, we shall do so. We shall not mock budding and unlooked for love/plot twists. Seriously, we’re just going to plan a wedding. The wedding we plan is essentially any wedding we would plan. We’d plan this wedding for anyone. This is the 3B one size fits all (what can be more non-partisan than that) wedding plan.

What we shall do is bid our services for newly flowering non-partisan Wedding Plannery market.

I ask you: are you with me?

Just throwing out some ideas here:

For the reception we’ll need several passed appetizers. I was thinking of appetizers with an amusing bloggery theme- we might consider those on both sides of the aisle, assuming we all shall be invited electronically.

Cheeze and Crackers:
Glenn’s Going Galtines with Protein Whiz-dom?

Vegetarian Options:
Sadly, No Meat!

I was also thinking mini-bacon explosions, although I realized that that is not an entirely made up thing. Golden Onion Wieners, natch.

Ann’s blogroll here might be good for suggestions.

For table favors we could have not cobags (gross) but chobags. Little bags of chocolates with initials of the couple. In non-partisan colors like red and redder, for love.

I was also thinking of a giant ice sculpture of El Snacktator.

The bridal headpiece will be extravagantly breathtaking. The finest emu feathers fanned into a stunning showstopper, colored just so to set off the light complexion of the bride to be.

I figure the first dance will be an 18 minute long Freedom Rock jam.

How else can the unique 3B experience be brought to bear on infinite and unending happiness?

I will be so pissed if this is all just a practical joke because I am looking forward to the gun cake. We can upscale it by calling it 2nd Amendment Cake.

Dinner music will be by Libertarian Nanobot Orchestra, if we can get them. Sadly, many of the vendors we are likely to have contacted will have gone Galt, which increases out inability to maintain strict non-partisan non-affiliation.

We dedicate this to Double-A, because we went loop-de-loop when we heard the news. We’d even say we were “happy” although we will not delve into incriminating specifics of our closely guarded dark hearts.

We certainly hope that the after party doesn’t turn out like this.

The Malthusian Struggle

For Christmas murdered plant supremacy continues as ever. Faceless crocheted angel rebounds from the inside of Smokedog’s mouth with a busted halo and an even badder attitude this year, while Kermit bides his time in second place, only to disappear into a sad, lightless dungeon the other 50+ weeks a year. Crochet angel has a terrible power.

Hark, the herald angels sing! What is that a new factor on the scene? Perhaps a coup d’etat is in the offing! Snacktator is in third and he’s got his hand on the worldwide denunciation trigger!@#@21 Can he denounce and coup coup his way to the top?


More Sad Hits at the Top of The Pops

“If you liked it you shoulda put some zing on it”

Things I have the time, inclination and privilege to worry or even think about

Since we’ve already been declared trivial, and we agree, I’d like to indulge for a brief second. When I listen to songs that I love, that provide some sort of human feeling or weird emotional resonance, I think is this the last time this song will work for me in this way? Kind of like when the hypothetical drugs stop working or your favorite food stops being your favorite or something just stops.

One song that I love [number 4 on the list], regardless now of how many times I’ve heard it, or how many choady DJs act like they’ve always loved it since two summers ago, but somehow their radio station only had the balls to play it since it took off in a movie trailer, and I have loved since the first second I heard it, and a song now that has had many, many lives do to the fact that its sample is essentially the perfect pace for any retrospective visual contemplation of anything.

I worry about when I won’t feel the same way. When I’ll just skip it when it comes on the shuffle.

Example 1, Pineapple Express Trailer:

Example 2, Slumdog Millionaire Clip (won’t spoil the film for you):

Saw the second today, and enjoyed the film. Some very sad and happy parts. Dickensian has been used to describe it, and I think that is accurate. Don’t let someone oversell you on it. I think it rises to the level of pretty good, but certain parts, especially in the first half were well done and strongly affecting, and of course “Paper Planes” used for a wonderful moment.
