So I had a birthday. An ever-notable marker on the path towards death. And, well, I know how I'll die. And it's the same way Über S will die. So we made a video together.
(clever grad student-types may want to note that in this video i used the black bars for a completely different effect than the way i normally use them here on thmusings; how about them cheese logs, clever grad student-types?)
Buy the shirt!
Happy Birthday! I'm so depressed. I don't know why...ReplyDelete
I am NOT moving to, visiting, or even thinking about California anytime soon after seeing that.ReplyDelete
Hey, I survived the quake of '89. Anything's possible. Just get yourself under one of those doorways. And don't worry.....it's just a matter of time before SLC has theirs.
Surely today's 4.5 quake in LA was a foreshock to the great and dreadful Hayward quake. It definitely was no coincidence!ReplyDelete
Happy birthday. And I hope for my sake as well as yours that the quake takes a long time coming.ReplyDelete
Oh, and I've spent a lot of time at that Ikea recently. Yay for cheap furniture.
I always learn so much on your site...for instance, today I learned that the earth has toes that can be covered in dust from an earthquake...surely that deserves some kind of poetic utterance...ReplyDelete
For your birthday, I'll acknowledge that I've rediscovered your blog recently, too. And it also says good thing.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your shake.
If I were John Lasseter, I would give you a job already.ReplyDelete
I am ascared of California now.
Best Videoblog ever.ReplyDelete
Here's hoping you squeeeeze another few birthdays in (or at least get the call from Lasseter) before the destruction begins. :)ReplyDelete
I don't know why but I feel compelled to say John Lasseter should give you a job.ReplyDelete
WHo's John Lasseter?
Happy Birthday! I have to admit that birthdays remind me of my own mortality also. Theric, If we get this messed up about it now, what are birthdays going to be like when we are actually old?! It kind of makes you feel like a little speck in the brown dirt and then you think "What's the freakin' point of my life?!" That's where religion comes in. Perhaps, even though I am just a speck, my speckness could possibly mean at least a little something. I hope you are wrong about the earthquake.ReplyDelete
I made ratatouille for dinner tonight.ReplyDelete
Is there supposed to be a new shirt relating to your mortality and/or the Hayward Quake? Or do you just want us to buy any of the current shirts?ReplyDelete
OMGoodness, that was so much fun. Great short.ReplyDelete
Happy not-dead-yet birthday.
Ah, sorry--I'm actually wearing the Dumptruck! shirt. That's what I'm referring to.
Late as always to the party, but a big Happy Birthday! anyway!ReplyDelete
And oh: JL runs Pixar.
This was WAY funnier when I watched it the second time. With sound.ReplyDelete
Hope you had a great birthday.
