Hey... these exist...

I recommend them.

You should try them, if you like such things.

Rejected: Folgers Jingle!

Folgers Coffee is having a contest!

People submitted their take on a Folgers Coffee jingle. It had to include their classic "The best part of waking up is Folgers in your cup!"

I submitted this:

I found out today that it was not one of the finalists.

You can watch the finalists' videos HERE and vote on which one you think is best!

sethifus, MisterSeth, and a cover...

Let's catch back up!

I wrote a new song!

I tried to write a round, but I wrote different words for each part. I don't know if that's still a round or if it's called something else. The tune is the same for each part... roughly.


It'd been way too long since I recorded a MisterSeth song.

This one is the way a child I used to teach would sing this song. She'd combine the two and I thought it was genius!

So... here it is.


This is one of my FAVORITE Caspar Babypants songs!

I wanted to do a MisterSeth cover of it, closer to the original song, but it didn't work out.

So I made a sethifus version instead!

I'm sort of trying to channel Elvis here, kinda.

That's it!

Oh, and this picture makes me really, really happy and I don't know why.

Somebody posted it on facebook, and I've been smiling about it ever since. I don't know who made it or else I'd credit them.

He just looks so happy. And his smile kinda reminds me of a friend of mine from elementary school.

A Late-Night Trip to Marsh with sethifus!

Yesterday was Saint Patrick's Day.

After Princess Melawesome and I had a few drinks with friends we decided to stop by a Marsh grocery store on the way home to get some snacks and more drinks to see us through the rest of the evening.

The title says "Late-Night" but it was only about 10 o'clock.

One of the first things I saw was this:

It seems like I keep seeing Crystal Pepsi everywhere. I see Surge on occasion too, but not as often as Crystal Pepsi. I saw a big cardboard display tub of them at Target the other day, I see them at random gas stations, and now Marsh a few times.

It kind of bothers me.

It wouldn't, but since it came back in the same year that they brought back and discontinued Ecto Cooler, well... it kind of feels like rubbing salt in a wound.

Then I saw this.

Now I have a bit of a problem with anthropomorphism.

It was exacerbated by "The Christmas Toy" and the "Toy Story" movies.

So when I saw Lamb Chop hanging up there in the dog toy aisle, I considered buying her so she wouldn't have to end up mangled by a dog.

But then I thought more about it and thought, "But what if she wants to get mangled by a dog because it's her purpose as a dog toy?"

Then I just felt all kinds of mixed up and walked away trying not to think about the even smaller version of Lamb Chop on a higher peg.

Then I saw these:

Wine Gums are pretty tasty. I tried them one year at Irish Fest. But these boxes frustrated me even further because now Marsh has Wine Gums and Pims (which are pretty much Jaffa Cakes) but they don't have Jelly Babies!

And like any good Doctor Who fan, if Jelly Babies were available at my local Marsh, I'd always have a steady supply of them in my house.

But NOPE! Just Wine Gums so far.

At least there are Wine Gums.

Here's the stuff I ended up getting:

Candy shell chocolate eggs (yum), Doritos Loaded (I haven't tried them yet because the box doesn't tell you how to microwave them, they look like they'll be gross though), Tontino's Pizza Sticks (good if what you want is a long pizza roll), Japanese noodles that look like ramen (figured I'd see if they were any different from the ramen I usually get), Laughing Water beer (the only individual big beer bottle I could find at this Marsh, it's okay), Woodbridge Wine (the favorite wine in the Ponder Haus), and Starburst Jellybeans (the only jellybeans I really like).

In the checkout line I saw this:

and I thought to myself, "When did Mentos start making caramel candies?"

Wow, after reviewing the pictures I took, that late-night trip to Marsh made me angrier than I thought.

Purple Stuff

I reviewed a drink.

I also name drop the Purple Stuff Podcast.

That's where that is.


Eats Like a Duck (a website about all the food in the Simpsons Universe) just recently went to Universal Studios! In the article about the trip they link to my article!

And ELaD called me "friend of the blog"!

That's pretty freaking cool.

Some New Things...

I haven't updated since the day after my birthday.

Weird. I was doing so well there for a while.

Here's some new stuff.

I wrote this song based on the writings of the Bloggess.

You should check her stuff out. It's pretty much the best stuff.

I also ate some more food the wrong way.

And Princess Melawesome made this, um, awesome picture of Dogwood with some iPad app thing and her new iPencil!

I think that's it. There might be a Guitprov video or two, I can't remember the last one I posted.

Keep on...
