Random Thursday (ˈrandəm ˈTHərzdā): the day on which Sarah plunks down all the odd bits and pieces she’s been sent by friends or has otherwise stumbled upon this week in an effort to avoid writing a real post, the assembly of which usually ends up taking twice as much time as sitting down and creating actual content.
My whole attitude this week can be summed up in one word: Baaaaaah.
So I went with it.
Hipster Sheeple or Sheepish Hipster?
Hurts so good.
One day, during my brief sojourn as a music major, I was studying in my dorm room to Pachelbel’s Canon—actually, I was studying the Canon itself, for Theory class.
I wasn’t wearing headphones, and the door was open.
My RA stuck her head into the room in passing and asked me why on earth I was playing the GE Soft Light commercial over and over.
When I told her the original music had been composed around 1693,
she looked at me like I’d just won the trophy for Champion Freshman Idiot and said,
“Oh, please. Lightbulbs weren’t even invented back then.”
She wasn’t wrong. Entirely.
(Thanks, Tina—I’d forgotten!)
Rocking the Oxymoron
Ladies, Gentlemen, and Others, I give to you the song “No Stress”,
as sung by a musician named Wolf
to images from Shaun the Sheep.
Feel the awesome.
(Not that I didn’t appreciate the . . . effort . . . it must have take to create that other sheep vid you sent, me, Kev, but I like this one better)
The Bathgate Conspiracy
According to Reddit, a sheepherder in Bathgate, Scotland, (safely) had been dying his sheep in bright colors for several years in order to entertain passing motorists.
This is the pretty picture that usually accompanies this announcement.
But if you look at the comments, a resident of Bathgate (Mayor_Goldie_Wilson) says that this isn’t quite right
The image s/he offers of the Real Bathgate Sheep™ is a bit less . . . Easter best.
But dark purple sheep? Are still totally cool, y’all.
(I can’t remember who first shared the above image on Facebook, as nearly everyone did, but thanks! )
A Small Amount of Sheep is Not Zero
And that is exactly what this video provides.
And remember, at any given time, you are never more than 12,750 km away from a sheep.
I find this oddly comforting in a really disturbing way.
