Today is the birthday of zanthinegirl, who once heroically rescued me from Neil Sedaka when no one else could. Frankly, there's just not enough "thank you" in the world for that! She's also been good enough to hook me up with some fine seventies punk. As a token of my gratitude and appreciation for her general awesomeness, I have chosen to honor the anniversary of her birth with a moving musical tribute.


Unfortunately, too many divas spoil the supergroup, and one of them was bound (if only!) and determined to seize his moment in the spotlight. . .



*whispers* Geez, even I'm embarrassed for Spike, and I did this to him! After conferring with Joey and Lorne (and taking several restorative slugs sips of Lorne's Sea Breeze), it was decided that things might go more smoothly if Spike were, in fact, sedated.



Yeahhh. That didn't go too well, either. I guess that some things are best left to the pros. Whoever said chivalry is undead never met this little charmer.

Tell you what--let's just forget we saw that one, too. Never mind the ball joints! (Heh. Please don't hurt me.)


HAPPY BIRTHDAY, OTHER ZGIRL!! *hugs* Hope you have a good one, and I send my very best wishes for the upcoming year. *holds Bic aloft* Rawk on, girlie!

Ball joints, hee!

Aww, thank you! My husband worships the Ramones, and when we saw Joey at the video store a couple of weeks ago, there was no question about where he really belonged. Lorne is a product of an eBay spree that needs to end now. Or tomorrow, anyway. It's a sickness. *runs away to check auctions*

You actually have a JOEY RAMONE DOLL???!?!?!??!!! Iz impressed.

Hee! Joey is a recent acquisition. M. Mere is a huge Ramones fan, and when we saw the doll at the store, lo, there was much squee. He just used his surplus funds for the college's media center to buy the collected works of the Ramones and Prince's oeuvre. Huh. I wonder if there's a Prince doll?!

Maybe there is.
I once sat next to Joey Ramone at a restaurant in the East Village ...

I LOVE THAT! That beats my "I was behind James Taylor in the boarding line and he stepped on my foot" story all to hell.

I don't know about Prince, but they did have this. I think Lorne and Freddie would hit it off big-time.

Indeed, the list of Things I Need grows ever longer!

I'm amazed at how wonderfully arrogant that doll looks. No one should be able to pull off shiny track pants and epaulettes, but fashion bends to his mustache's will.

*blushes* Thanks, darlin! Joey's not poseable, but what he lacks in immobility, he makes up for in punk cred. ;)

All hail the Doll Queen!
Awesome concert! I wave my lighter in honor of the b'day girl.

Does Joey's motorcycle jacket come off??? *thinks Spike should steal it*

Re: All hail the Doll Queen!
Thank you, sweetie!

Sadly, no. Joey's immobile and un-undressable. It's a shame, because he's wearing an "I'm Not Joey Ramone" t-shirt underneath it. Hee!

Hee!! My favorite kind of music post - the kind with subtitles so I don't miss out on the lyrics!

Glad you enjoyed it! *slaps forehead* And OMG, I just did a music post and I don't want you to miss out on the lyrics! It's a blues song that a man wrote for his daughter when she was having trouble at work, and the lyrics are as follows:

I'm about to whip somebody's ass
Ohh I'm about to whip somebody's ass
Oh, if you don't leave me alone
You're gonna' have to send me home
'Cause I'm about to whip some-body's ass.


Sheer poetry. ;)

Just my type of song!

And it reminds me ... I wrote this way back in the bad old days of 2003. You might enjoy it. ;-)

Bwahahaa! Fo' rizzle. I'm going to use the phrase "ass machine" forever now!!

OMG! *dissolves into giggles*

There truly are no words... although you'd think Spike would be used to being a cupcake topper by now. If he needs anyone to lick him clean, I'm totally available. :)

Bwahaa! Y'know he's always complaining about the frosting, but I think it's just a front and he's hoping that someone will offer to lick it off. I'll tell him that I found a volunteer. ;)

Yeah, that was probably a new low--even for me.

Z. was reading it over my shoulder this morning, and she was like, "Weird. I don't get it." I thought: "Good!"

Thank you. I'm pleased to report that it has now been officially Birthday Girl Approved. :D

Bwaa-haa-haa! That's like the best present EVER!

Joey Ramone doll-- where on earth did you find a Joey Ramone doll?

Yay! *does happy pogo* I'm so glad that you like it. M. Mere picked up Joey at Hastings (who knew?) a couple of weeks ago, and I immediately knew what his doll!fic fate was to be. I wish I had the Lorne in gold lamé, but ve verk viz vat ve haff. ;)

I'm not sure if it shows up, but if you look very closely, Spike is standing on Elvis Costello's "Spike." *waves dork flag* Happy Birthday, darlin!

I actually hadn't noticed, but now that you point it out! Hee!

Yay! Birthday!Pic!Spam for zanthinegirl!

Lorne is TO DIE FOR! His mic! His amp! His Seabreeze!
*squishes him*

I have a technical question, though...do you go out and buy cupcakes for these or is it a prop? :)
mere_ubu
Jul. 24th, 2008 02:43 pm (UTC)
Hee! Thank you, sweetie. I had a good time with this. Lorne's little Seabreeze was the deciding factor in his acquisition. How could I not get him after seeing that?!

Yep, I bought a big cupcake and went to town with camera. They always seem to be marked down to 99 cents (I guess there's a limit to how much people are willing to pay for a large pile of sweetened Crisco), so it wasn't a huge drain on the prop budget. ;)

What an impressive CDs stage! I'm envious of your little people. Next life I live, I want a big house and a small town of plastic guys in it. Be careful with Spike's ball joints.
