High Clover & Prickly Heat

What do you make of this? This trailer, "Cloverfield," was seen during the weekend showing of "Transformers" and seems to have stirred up quite a bit of mystery. And controversy. All in all, it's pretty intriguing. Based on what I've seen, I'd probably go see the movie; if there actually is a movie. The trailer is apparently so closely guarded that it was yanked from YouTube. I'm not sure how Google got it, but mine is not to question why. Here's the trailer.



I can't get the video to play. Google videos don't seem to be as easy to work with as YouTubes. If it's not playing for you, either, you can see the video here.

You won't mind (too much) if I whine for just a second, will you? It's unbearably hot! At this rate, I could self-combust before my scraggly-headed neighbor does. If I'm out of the AC for five minutes, my hair sweats, my eyes glaze over, and it takes an act of Congress to make me move. I think my underarms have prickly heat. This is good for the neighbor, of course, since it's too hot for me to run outside and shoot him -- and I wouldn't shoot him inside because there would be blood and mess that somebody would have to clean up. I'm not saying that extreme heat gives me homicidal tendencies -- but it doesn't do anything to quell them, either. Let's just say it makes me prickly and stipulate that I fare much better in a temperate climate.


FUN WITH TWISTED LINGUISTICS

First, our daily offering from that zany "editor"

What a great example for others to shot for
kurmudgin
expensive, sheek store
low and behold - We just know this translates to, "Look! Cows talking!"


And then we have:

respones - Uh-oh, they're sponing again.

shear hell - A hair salon best avoided.

Oen mouth

brick and morter

for the passed few years

dasterdly

Please, feel free to take a crack at the ones I couldn't get.


Boudreaux, a Cajun in his fourth year as a LSU Freshman, sat in his US government class. The professor asked Boudreaux if he knew what Roe vs. Wade was about.

Boudreaux pondered the question, then finally said, "That was the decision George Washington had to make before he crossed the Delaware."

I belong in 1992...no surprise there.

I got a whopping case of prickly heat on my NECK after deck-o-rama last weekend. I thought I was going to itch myself into oblivion. And yes, I think my hair was sweating too.

Thank goodness for central air conditioning!

pinkhippo said...

I almost fainted ....

I belong to 1957 and I am fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

How can that be??? Why? why? why?

I am going to try again, until I can find an answer of my choice... lol

Liz said...

If you shot Neighbour from hell, you wouldn't have to go to court. Not as a witness against him anyway. And they probably have air conditioning on high in prisons to stop inmates rioting. I'm just trying to find some positives here.

Liz said...

I belong in 1953. "You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!"

I am a little shocked. I assumed I was a 70's child, but it is close enough. What is not shocking is SJ's view of the weather. Too hot...

I missed blogging yesterday so I missed you getting the witness call. I am so sorry, but am not sure who for- you or the poor schmo with three redheads after him. I think I pity him a tad bit more, but will not admit that. I don't want those redheads after me.

Top cat said...

I'm not a fan of the rapid camera action technique used in some films like this one.
To me it artificially creates tension but I was intriqued by the whooshing sound.lol

Heat can easily make one angrier, I believe this is why there is always so much tension in the mideast.

WtF???

Must've been my Cary Grant and Marilyn Monroe choices.:)

Charles said...

OK. Seeing how you don't enjoy the heat I bring, I'll send you a front, might take it a bit to get there, but you'll have it before the end of the week. OK?

The Weather Channel makes this possible. I'm psychotic like that. BeYahahaha. What's that? Psychic? Oh.

I'm telling you shooting people just doesn't cut it, you have to beat the crap out of them.

Serena Joy said...

1992? Greeny, honey, you're just a baby. Oh, man, doesn't prickly heat suck? I can only put something on it at night -- because I don't want gunk smeared all over my clothes. Yes, indeed, thank goodness for AC. I'm convinced it's what's keeping the murder rate down.:-)

Pink Hippo, Liz, and TC, I love your "drive-in" results. PH is probably not old enough to even remember drive-ins, but Liz, TC, and I do.

Liz, you make an excellent point. I believe there IS AC in prison. I think I'll just mosey on over and plug that ol' boy and get it over with. There's 3 hots and a cot in jail. And AC. And no witness nonsense.:-)

Kan, that's amazing! We both belong in the same era. Who on earth could have predicted that? It's okay for you to pity the redneck schmoe beseiged by redheads. LOL.

TC, I got kind of mesmerized by the whooshing sound, too. I don't think it's just the Midwest the heat principle applies to. I think heat can turn nice old ladies everywhere into homicidal maniacs.:-)

Do you promise, Charles? The cold front will be here by the end of the week? Yippee! I think I can hold out that long. Beyahahaha! Oh, sorry; small psychotic break there. Speaking of which -- I just don't have the upper body strength to beat the crap out of people who outweigh me by about 100 lbs. I'm shooting them. It's just easier.:-)

Kanrei said...

Cold front hits SJ on Friday and she is tired of the cold by Friday night. =P

Serena Joy said...

LMAO! I'd deny it, Kan, but -- you know me too well.:-)

Camille Alexa said...

for the passed few years

Time spent by the ghosts of the fairly-recently departed.

______________

May I mention that the weather in Portland is perfect? Perfect as perfect could perfectly be? It is supposed to get to 100 later this week, but I have yet to see it climb out of the 80s.

Charles said...

100 lbs? That's what blackjacks are for. A tube sock filled with sand makes a good substitute. THEN you commence to beating with an easily disposed of 2X4.

Diesel said...

That movie looks like The Blair Witch Project with a budget.

I belong in 1950, but I couldn't honestly answer the "pet cause" one, because my options were:

# Fair trade
# Women's rights
# The environment
# Peace
# Hygiene

Where is "No Special Rights for Cyborgs"?

Serena Joy said...

In other words, Camille, passed time = dead time. Good one! Your weather does sound perfect. I can live with 80s.

Okay, sign me up, Charles. You're going to give me lessons in how to fill tube socks, find the best 2x4s, and good beating moves.

ALTHOUGH, knock on wood, it "might" resolve yet. I had a nice chat with those peoples' landlady today and she said they're still negotiating. Now they've offered the deadbeats $500 cash to move out by the 25th, no court costs, no questions asked.

I don't understand that, either, Diesel. I mean, why discriminate against Cyborgs? That doesn't seem fair.:-)

Charles said...

Hey!
Cyborg rights? Arnold already has too much power, and he's not even from here.

Scary Monster said...

That darned test called me a neanderthal! Well, Me never. STOMP.

Go ahead and whine Serena. Me lives in the mountains where it be nice and cool in the summer, but Me gets to bitch in the winter when Me be snowbound and cabin crazy.


The trailer looks mighty intristin. Cain't wait for the whole deal to make it's way across the pond.

Pink said...

don't forget the drugs.

but please forget the guns.

blood is so hard to get out of the towels. brain bits are the worst.

Serena Joy said...

Charles, vote for Diesel for president in 2020 and I think he'll do something about equal rights for Cyborgs.:)

Damned stupid quiz, Scary. Maybe I should shoot IT. Hey, I live in the mountains, too, but mine are insufferably hot. I thought the trailer was interesting, too. I love that kind of stuff.

You NEED drugs for this kind of stuff, Pinks. I've found that cold water and bleach works pretty well on the blood stains. It won't fool CSIs, of course. I gave up on brain and bone bits. I just call Merry Maids.:-)

Top cat said...

Good luck tomorrow.

tfg said...

It was 108 degrees where I was working today. Nice.

Hale McKay said...

Rumor has that trailer is for the movie "Voltron."

Anyway it's certainly an interesting way to create interest.

I remember years ago that for several months a cartoon image kept showing up with no explanation. It turns out it was the logo for the ambulance for the movie "Ghostbusters."

There was speculation and water coller chat about that for some time. THat was before the spread of the Internet and nothing leaked out until just before the movie was released.

Apparently I like being 12...

You Belong in 1986

Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

Serena Joy said...

Oh, my Lord, T, that sounds awful! I don't know how you can stand that. I'd have had to shoot somebody.:-)

Voltron, Mike? Any clue as to who or what Voltron is, or do we have to wait 'til Jan. to find out? Chances are, with the Internet, we won't.

I think you're always colorful, Seeley. And certainly successful at everything you do. Shoot, I think I wouldn't mind being 12 again.:)

G-Man said...

Serena..?
I belong in 1917,
Beer was .10 cents
Marijuana was not illegal.
And people say I look like a Doughboy..
( The Pillsbury Doughboy)
xoxox

Serena Joy said...

1917, BDG?! Did they even have Pillsbury then? Not that anyone cared, what with all the legal marijuana. Well, except when they got the munchies. They might have cared then. I say we bring back 1917 -- and .10 beer.:-)

puerileuwaite said...

For some reason, the phrase "prickly heat" is both humerous and erotic.

puerileuwaite said...

Oops. You DID know I meant to write "humorous", right? Please don't add my error to your next "Twisted Linguistics".

Serena Joy said...

I agree with you, Puggy, that there's a certain eroticism to the phrase; the condition, not so much. Unless red, itchy bumps turn you on. I did know what you meant, and I never, ever submit my friends to the Twisted Linguistics Inquisition.:-)

Charles said...

Actually from what I've read bleach is pretty effective against luminol. It doesn't prevent DNA collection though, so I kind of think that yogurt might be the answer to that. With active bacteria cultures, it might "eat" the human DNA, and worst case it might just swamp the detection.

Serena Joy said...

Can there be fruit in the yogurt? Sprinkles? Chocolate?:-)

Charles said...

Actually if there's anything with iron or copper, or a number of other things, it should help fooling the luminol. Heck and yuck, even feces fools luminol.

Serena Joy said...

Eeee-yewww! This is why I believe I'll stick to my original plan of marching my victims outdoors to shoot them.:-)

Steve G said...

Roe Vs. Wade...okay.
