I Know It Hurts Now, But It'll Get Easier, I Promise..

Well folks, in a short while I will be abandoning my blog for a lazy week at the beach. I know it will be hard for many of you, but you have to understand that everyone needs a break. Even an Internet superstar like myself. Taking a vacation is a deeply personal matter, so I ask that you respect my privacy during this time.

Stop crying, babies.

Jeez, really.

Look, when I'm sad or when I feel as if no one in the world understands the kind of pain I'm going through, I often turn to music. So, here is my parting gift to you: a few videos that might help ease your suffering during the darkness of the coming week.










**You will forget all about me after watching this final vid, because it is quite possibly the greatest thing any of you will ever see.

Where's my K-Fed picture that you promised to photoshop for me?

Leanne Rimes: How Do I Live
Some Random Girl Band: I Miss You
Chicago: If You Leave Me Now
Player: Baby Come Back
Hall & Oats: She's Gone

Wait, what? This wasn't one of those contest thingys? Damn it!

P.S. That Hall & Oats video IS possibly the greatest thing I've ever seen. Have a great vacation!

You're going to the beach?!?

Bite me.

Oh no, I'm not bitter. Or jealous. No, not at all. ;)

Please leave your phone number JUST IN CASE we have to get a hold of you. Actually just give it to me and I'll coordinate things so people don't get all irresponsible with it and all.

I miss you already. Did you leave the keys under the doormat like always? Do you still hide your money under the mattress and the liquor in the bathroom closet? Go away and have fun - I'll take care of the rest.

On the coolness/suckiness scale you're 2 for 5 with these vids. 'Baby Come Back' is a great track with the exception of this one flaw: The male vocalist sings during the chorus "I was wrong..." to his lover and as we all know, we men are never wrong.

'She's Gone' is such an awesome song even that uber gay video doesn't ruin it. What's John Oates' deal? He looks Cat Stevens as a Chipindale dancer for Christ sakes.

BTW, are you the one person in all of Brooklyn that doesn't own a laptop to blog with while on vacation?

Oh, I get it... Blogging is work to you isn't it? We're a burden to you is that it? Well, we'll just see who's still reading The Pop Eye when you get back.

Okay then, I see ya in a week...

Barbara(aka Layla) said...

Why am I afraid to click on those videos?

Have fun and wear sunscreen! Don't get eaten by a shark and stay away from Sailors!

pistols at dawn said...

Wow. Absence does make the heart grow fonder, but sadly for you, my heart just grew fonder of me.

Mike said...

Oates Tux shirt is a pop culture staple!

Happy Villain said...

Okay, I was going to miss you, but then I had to sit through some of the worst videos I've ever seen, and for that, well, okay, I'll still miss you, but I have no choice but to inflict this upon you.

Go watch it. You will laugh. You will cry. You will want to buy suspenders for these guys. And you will like it better than Bonnie Tyler's video. Guaranteed.

bloody awful poetry said...

What?! The mother I never had is leaving on vacation without me? Dammit I'm calling social sevices right NOW, you hear??

evil-e said...

I love the feathered mullet...have fun.

katrocket said...

I LOVE YOU for sharing that Hall n' Oates Golden Moment. Is Daryl wearing silver strappy platform sandals? As if that Lion King hairdo isn't sexy enough...

Have a terrific vacation!

cube said...

Have a great time! You deserve a break. If you're smart, you'll stay away from mountains!

Doc said...

I watched all of the videos back to back and it didn't help.

Although the last one did make me reconsider some fashion faux pas in the past.

David Amulet said...

I've been crying ever since I started reading this blog, so it won't be new to me.

Falwless said...

Man, a buncha damn well-wishers. I, for one, hope your vaca is awful. Truly terrible. I hope you get eaten by a shark and no one can find your body.

Just kidding, just kidding. I hope they find it.

Alice said...

aw man, enjoy your vacay. i'll be here at work silently cursing you and shaking my fist at the ceiling.

Angela said...

Oh my lord. I only watched that last video (because you said it was the greatest), and. Well. I have no words.

Dale said...

How very dare you! Imagine taking time off! You're breaking our hearts. Have an excellent time though. And then come back. That's what I did!

Gifted Typist said...

missing you desperately
K-fed missing you too

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Get your butt to that beach and don't come back till you can't stand sand in all your crevices anymore.

Don't worry about us, we'll be fine.

Really.

BS Blogger said...

LOL I don't know you but you crack me up :D! Great videos :)! Have fun at the beach!!!

CDP said...

Have fun! I'm going in 10 days.

Kristi Mantoni said...

What drugs were Hall & Oats on during that video? Too funny!

Hope you're having a great time!

Grant Miller said...

But...But...But...

Slave to the dogs said...

Holy hell - John and Daryl were clearly high on...uh....life. Yeah, that's it. And that is some horrific lip synching!

Just curious, why no reviews of the 2 Coreys season 2? I'm having fun watching those dillwads.

Chancelucky said...

Have a good vacation Beckeye.Say hi to Michael and the Travoltas for us.

LoraLoo said...

Holy cow Hall and Oates in the last video... I didn't know who the hell that was for like the first 20 seconds. Check out the platform shoes! Wow. Just Wow.

LoraLoo said...

See I was so dumbfounded that I forgot to wish you a most excellent vacation... Hope you are enjoying yourself!

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
