|02:22 pm - you're not wise, idiot|
i just watched a whole episode of reading rainbow because i was too lazy to change it. the other night there was a question on the world series of pop culture asking who the host of the show was, andrew and i both said lamarr brown, so i assumed that had to be right, since we both thought it and all. but i soon learned it was actually levarr burton. which i thought was weird. i just looked up lamarr brown, and all i can find is the production manager and art director of a 2005 film - the eyes of vangogh. so i guess we just think alike. or maybe we both misheard it as kids.
i need a grant hinkle post prom head massage. i need a geena northcutt happy birthday back massage. pbs makes me feel weird, i have to go get the remote.
p.s. clerks 2 is so funny. if you don't think so, then you just don't get it.

"people always end up the way they started out. no one ever changes. they think they do but they don't. if you're the depressed type now that's the way you'll always be. if you're the mindless happy type now, that's the way you'll be when you grow up. you might lose some weight, your face may clear up, get a body tan, breast enlargement, a sex change, it makes no difference. essentially, from in front, from behind. whether you're 13 or 50, you will always be the same."
"are you the same?"
"are you glad you're the same?"
"it doesn't matter if i'm glad. there's no freewill. i mean, i have no choice but to choose what i choose, to do as i do, to live as i live. ultimately, we're all just robots programmed arbitrarily by nature's genetic code."
"isn't there any hope?"
"for what? we hope or despair because of the way we've been programmed. genes and randomness, that's all there is and none of it matters."
"does that mean you're never going to get married and have children?"
"i have no anent desire to get married or have kids. but that's beyond my control. really, it makes no difference. since the planet's fast running out of natural resources and we won't make it into the next century."
"what if you're wrong? what if there is a god?"
"if that makes you feel better."

|06:45 pm - i wrote this in my livejournal when i was 14|
okay so i mostly sucked for the first 2 or 3 years of my livejournal life, but this is probably one of the coolest things i've ever written....
"an in depth look on the torklesons
I suppose it would be appropriate to start with the original "The Torklesons" that aired on the disney channel. And here is the theme song...
People say God looks out for the working man
Sure hope he's looking out for me
These empty pockets need a helping hand
Kitchen tables for the family
When the sun comes up (sun comes up)
And the moon is shining big and bright
And the new day promises
That everything will be all right
And the new day promises (promises)
That everything will be all right...
And now for a character analysis for all those on the tv show, beginning with the family. Mr. Hodges- a nice, wise caretaker who lived in the basement. The mom- an eccentric, loud but sweet southerner. Dorothy Jane- the eldest of the Torkleson crew, may it be noted that she talked to the man in the moon every night and always seemed to have her head in the clouds. After Dorothy Jane came Stephen Floyd- the rebel in the family who seemed to get all the girls despite his mullet like haircut. Ruth Ann was the middle child- she played the french horn and shaved off Dorothy Jane's eyebrows once the night before she was to appear in a play. May it also be noted that I did not like Ruth Ann- but this didn't call for her banishment from the family, we'll address that later however. Chuckie Lee, next to youngest- didn't always talk but was rather funny when he did, wore big rimmed thick glasses. And finally was Mary Sue- her barbies were often found in the refrigerator, always seemed to be eating something or bumming food off of Mr. Hodges, and talked to elmo in one episode.
Then there are those who didn't live in the house, but did play an important role in the tv show. There was Riley, the next door neighbor. Though several years older than Dorothy Jane she still found herself to be head over heels for him. And of course there was Kirby, one of the annoying neighbor boys that was in love with Dorothy Jane. Always seemed to find a way into the house, and when he didn't he simply climbed into a treehouse and looked into Dorothy Jane's windows. I always liked kirby.
Hillary Swank once appeared in an episode of the Torklesons. She wasn't liked much by her classmates but was paired with Dorothy Jane to do a project. Her name was Willie- her father named her after Willie Maes. She was a tom boy but I believe that Dorothy Jane "transformed" her by the end of the episode. It was a type of "she's all that" scenario.
And now for the analysis of the accents...
Mr. Hodges had a very light accent
The mom had a thick southern accent
As did Dorothy Jane
Although Chuckie Lee and Mary Sue's accents weren't as strong as their mother and sister's they were still there...
Stephen Floyd and Ruth Ann didn't seem to have much of an accent... could this possibly be why they up and disappeared from the show? A horrible price to pay, but maybe Mother Torkleson just felt that her two accentless children didn't deserve to be on the show, or rather, be part of the family. There was never any explanation for the absensce of Stephen Floyd and Ruth Ann. When the new season of "The Torklesons, Almost Home" began they just weren't there anymore. The rest of the family just left them behind it seemed and they were never to be seen again. Riley and Kirby didn't seem to have great accents either, maybe that is why they were never spoken of again as well.
Which does bring me to the second show, "The Torklesons, Almost Home" though I seem to lack a rememberance for the entire theme song the beginning went as follows...
Just when you think you've settled down
And it feels like your almost home...
Perhaps they were on the run from their abandoned kids, Stephen Floyd and Ruth Ann. No one really knows why they chose to leave their humble abode in Oklahoma. But one day they just moved to San Francisco I think it was? Possibly Chicago. I'm not really sure which. Where Mrs. Torkleson worked as a type of maid for this new family, consisting of a father and two children- Gregory and Molly. Molly was Dorothy Jane's age. They were both spoiled kids not used not getting their way, but their new nanny sure taught them a lesson or two. There mother did in fact die recently though and for that they had my sympathy. Could it possibly that the producers felt a bit guilty in leaving Stephen Floyd and Ruth Ann in Oklahoma so they thought it appropriate to try and fill their positions with two new children? But they didn't even have two names! And that's just not right...
I guess we might not ever know what happened to the two long lost, and greatly missed, Torkleson children."
