Sad Kermit

ETA: I edited this post because I didn't want you all to think I was suicidal. Hahaha. (I'd say NTTAWWT, but yes, there is something wrong with that, so YTISWWT?) I'm just a little blue today because my dog died, goddamn it. That son of a bitch universe keeps hittin' me, but I keep gettin' back UP! To quote Malomatic, "BOOO-YA!"

IS THAT ALL YOU GOT? Wait, don't answer that. Fate, consider yourself un-tempted, k? Anyway, I'm fine, I'll get over it, just a bit of a downer.

So, I give you Kermit the Frog covering Elliot Smith's song, "Needle in the Hay." The song was used in one of my favorite off-beat dramedies, The Royal Tenenbaums.



and for shits, giggles, & comparison's sake, here's the scene from the real movie:


Catch up with you later, taters.
After all, tomorrow is another day....

Ohhh my... if you feel like that I just wanna hug you - that's one fucked up video.. um... I take that back... two fucked up videos. Now I'm gonna have to watch The Royal Tenenbaums 'cause I've never seen it.
verf: porjajj... should be porbev today... mwah!

Kate said...

Aw Bev, I am sorry you are blue. I hope tomorrow you are yellow and orange, ya know--sunshine colors!

The Royal Tenenbaums is one of my most favorite movies, and I have always loved that song. Thanks for introducing me to a new, equally somber version of it.

Mala said...

Thank you for clarifying that you are NOT suicidal. Unfortunately, after watching that, I am.

And because of that, I've forgotten the quick, witty little comment I was going to write. FML

Mala said...

...and I forgot to hit the follow comment button.

Mala said...

...and it's not just because I want to be your #1 commenter (both in quantity and quality).

Brooklyn ML said...

Oh Bev! I'm sorry to hear about your doggie.

MtnMama said...

oh, Bev, I'm so sorry about your dog. Somehow, that's made me tear up when so many other shitty things haven't. Probably because I miss my labs so much. We just don't get them for very long.

Kermit cutting off his ruff kinda freaked me out...

Bev said...

Jill - I'm ok, thanks! You know I'm just not wired to be sad for more than a day or two. Yaaaaay, me.

Kate - thank you! I will be tie-dye for you tomorrow, I promise. Also, why am I not surprised that you also love the Tenenbaums? Oh yeah, because you're AWESOME!

Mala - well played! You are now my numero uno commenter! Time to update the ol' resume, right? That's bullet point #1, right there!

Maeghan - thank you, love! Be sure to stop back in next week for my next collosal bummer! Not sure what it is yet, but whatever it is will surely be a doozie! Ha ha... sniff... ha.

Mtn Mama - sorry Kermit freaked you out! I always liked the juxtaposition of funny Kermit imagery with the Baumer attempting suicide, but then again... my sense of humor can be a bit macabre from time to time. Hee! Here, have a kleenex and a hug. ((((HUUUUG)))) Feel better? I know I do!

MtnMama said...

Nah, I'm fine. It's a far cry from "The Muppet Movie," but I'm good with that. ;)

The hugs ALWAYS make me feel better! Back at ya!

Mala said...

Oh, and thank you for not adding Kermit's "Rainbow Connection" cause, seriously for some unknown reason, that shit makes me cry and puts me into a deep depression for 3 weeks. WTF? Why?
I should probably seek professional help.

rkintn said...

I'm so sorry you doggie died. Fate is really hatin' our poor pooches lately:( I hope you get to feeling better soon. {{{{{Hugs}}}} to you!

Harmony said...

Aww..sorry to hear about your dog Bev.

And? I am way glad you are not suicidal..because you are right YTISWWT, definitely!

Mary said...

well shit shit shit! I am so sorry! The universe is really making things hard on you- smooches!
LOVE the Royal Tenenbaums, although I'll think of that song a bit differently now....

Samsmama said...

When did you install a top commenter thing?

Samsmama said...

You mean I was number one and didn't even know it?

Samsmama said...

And I've already been dethroned?

Samsmama said...

I don't think so.

Samsmama said...

I'm very sorry about your dog.

Samsmama said...

But you know what they say. They all go to heave.

Samsmama said...

It's 8:20 and 92 degrees.

Samsmama said...

And my AC isn't coming on.

Bev said...

Haaaaaa! I just installed that widget yesterday, and just LOOK at what has become of the ol' blogaroonie. You are one competative bunch! NTTAWWT! ;-)

Kate said...

You can have our dogs. Would that help?

Stacie's Madness said...

i'm so sorry for your loss...{{hugs}}

Matter Of Fact Mommy said...

aw bev, i'm so sorry about your pooch! SUCKS! it takes a bit longer to get over than i think people realize. unless they are also a dog lover. then i think they understand. how's THAT for most obvious comment ever?!

also, i have no grandiose visions of ever appearing in the top spot for commenters. sad. love you though!

Steph said...

Dude. I'm so sorry. Want to come over and get hammered and hang out in the ool? 'Cause you are TOTALLY welcome to come down and hang out.

laurieliz said...

So sorry to hear about your dog!!!! You mentioned Sat. that you didn't have a good feeling and that he hadn't been doing well...Still, so sorry! Hope things get better soon! I mean, they have to, right?

Bev said...

Thanks, everyone!

Kate, no thx. No more dogs for me for a while.

Stacie, thank you!

MOFM, I swear, I read that as "Sorry about your cooch," which was much less sweet but waaaay funnier. lol! Thanks, babe. Love you back!

Steph, I TOTALLY want to do that. Like, right now would be great. for real. Altho, I really can't be trusted to get hammered around water. I am hella accident-prone.

Laurie, YES! Let's hope so! Of course, you leaving for the entire month of July really BLOWS, but whatev! :p

Courtney said...

Sorry to hear about your dog. Go eat a corn dog with Samsmama - you will feel all better!!!

Cary said...

RIP, Fritz =( I hope he's somewhere playing with my Jessie and Coco, although they are a little old for him.

Sorry about your cooch, too. A little cream should fix that, though. Just keep your damn hands off of it for a few days -- think you can manage that?

Bev said...

Courtney - there is nothing a good corn dog can't fix, true. At least that's what Samsmama keeps telling me. Slut.

Cary - a few DAYS?!?! But... but... well, shoot.

jessica o said...

Mother fucker! My dad's partner died unexpectedly of undiagnosed pneumonia - but we were kinda expecting an eventual death because he needed a liver transplant. Then, my dad's dog died the next week! I kid you not! WHAT THE FUCK is with the dogs?

Sorry for your loss. Now STOP!

Also, love The Royal T and LUHUV Life Acquatic with Steve Zissou. Seu Jorge's covers of David Bowie are beautiful.

Did you really need to know all that shit about me? Well, now you know anyway. Love you, mwah!

So sorry about your doggie...it's so sad to lose them...
