No pushing at the door please!
Xsbaby had to be at Reagan National at 5 am today for the senior trip to Orlando, so i am rather lymphatic this AM. Sorry for the late opening.
Lymphatic - insisting on non-rigidity.
is that an alternate meaning also? sorry i am semi-braindead as i have been up since 3:30 am!
Is she going to see the mouse? Sounds like a good time.
ah... ya oughta know by now that I don’t offer up a definition without a pun, however bad that pun might be.
Well, I’m not lymphatic this AM. I am hhot on my quest to complain to the Hallmark Channel about the stupid Shoe Dazzle ad that they ran repeatedly over the weekend. I can’t imagine anything mor family UNfriendly!
But, Hallmark does not make it easy to get in touch with them with a complaint. Enless dead ends and convoluted web sites leading back to THEIR FAQs. I’m hot under the collar now.
I’m so hot that I can’t type. Hhot=hot and enless=endless.
This is the ad that runs in front of the jingle “I crashed my car into a bridge and I don’t care...”. If you listen closely, it starts out with something like “you were gone, or weren’t there” so I crashed my car into a bridge and I don’t care. “I love it”. “I threw your stuff down the stair and crashed my car nto the bridge and I don’t care.” Does anyone review these ads before they accept them?
nope, they are going to Universal Studios, Seaworld, Downtown Disney, a BlueManGroup show, Dave and Busters etc. over the course of the week. Guess they figure they are too grown for Disney.
i know that, but i am impaired such that i can’t even see the bad pun!
i will give you an A+ for effort because the fault is entirely mine!
A+++ maybe Hill is jealous of huma’s hubby!
A+++ great job, vast.
Here it is:
So annoying! I must have seen it 10 times over the weekend. I can’t imagine the effect on the “fluff-for-brains” teens across the nation. I guess the tune (by Icona Pop, a Swedish group) is very popular, but that doesn’t make it right! I would have expected better out of the Hallmark Channel.
And then to be frustrated at every turn against filing a complaint! Insult added to injury. I’ve got to ge well and out of this house and away from my TV.
i think the song is stupid, but i have never heard it nor have i seen the commercial.
Where is Neo today?
Hillary and Huma are hiding the Weiner?
knew before clicking it would be her. A+++ I also read she may be on the way out of CBS.
Like a cancer that starts with lymphatic
The socialists’ spread is emphatic
Mr. Marx started small
But may soon rule it all
With Obama’s “success” so dramatic
right under you ; )
Maybe we could get her at Fox and get rid of the doofus Juan Williams. He annoys me to no end. He’s not very bright and ogles the women constantly.
Hey Neo. How’s it going? Good weekend?
I’ve only seen it on the Hallmark Movie Channel. Last week when I looked it up, opinions were mixed on it. This week, all of the entries seem to LOVE this commercial and this song. I haven’t changed my opionion, however.
I lived in TX when a doctor deliberately crashed his car into a bridge abutment in an attempt to kill his 2nd wife. (He’d already killed his 1st wife, and he was afraid that the 2nd wife was going to rat him out.) When the crash didn’t kill her, he tried to inject her with something to speed the process, but was unsuccesful.
I guess what disturbs me about the song is the attitude that this girl’s happiness should depend upon whether some unidentified person is “there”, so she acts out by engaging in a reckless act. Or, she just runs out and purchases dangerous shoes! Whatever. I just can imagine impressionable teens unconsiously following the recipe for attention.
And what in the world does it have to do with shoes?
i pray that the families get answers, but it will take the press to bring sufficient pressure to bear and so holding one’s breath for that is risky.
He looks like a Zoot Suiter in that new pin stripe suit he was sporting this weekend. Definitely a mobster look.
i guess i can’t get worked up about it, because while kids are impressionable, i can’t imagine anyone thinking crashing a car into an abutment is fun and something they should do. song lyrics are rife with insidious suggestions of what is normal and acceptable and fun, that are far more likely to color a teens perception and cause them to emulate it— and they mostly involve rampant sexual promiscuity. i play songpop on my iphone and the Today’s hits category is full of those type of songs.
did you just see the commercial, and then google the lyrics, or is there a crusade against this particular song out there on the internets?
Going well. Thanks. How about you?
The song is dumb-I’ve never heard it or seen any shoedazzle commercials-I don’t watch the Hallmark channel, though.
Just me. Although, the first time I googled the song, there was at least one complaint. However, the entries LAUDING this stupid song far outnumbered the complaints.
The interesting thing is that LAST week, I had to register my computer and assure the powers that be that I was of age to view the commercial because the content was deemed to be unacceptable for underage consumers.
We have teenagers crashing into bridges and trees all the time around here (Wisconsin). Mostly drunk driving. Mostly the teens are dead afterwards, so we never know why the car crashed.
This song comes from a Swedish group — a population noted for depression, suicide, drug use, and alcohol use, as well as promiscuity. I don’t think these are activities we want our teens to emulate.
I am further agitated because it is so difficult to lodge a complaint with Hallmark Channel. I never would have expected this from a “family friendly” corporation.
While there are dozens of web address and phone numbers for Hallmark, they all lead to placing an order, or reviewing their “already prepared” FAQ pages. They don’t really seem to want input from the public.
I got a person on the phone today, and she connected me to a line (not a person) where I could record a message (which they stated up front would NOT be answered) where my complaint went down a memory hole.
I was also given a web address where I have to agree to a long terms of agreement statement and register before I can post anything. I’ve registered at this site 3 times, and don’t have approval to post yet.
I would expect this kind of treatment from the DNC, but not Hallmark.
Other Shoe Dazzle Commercials have been recorded by the Kardashians! Consider the source.
It is 58 and sunny-it rained over the weekend, and more rain is supposed to come Tuesday-there are white rain lilies blooming all over the open areas in the woods, it was a lovely morning to hike...
The overconfident Obama staff
Has been lymphatic so long
They didn’t see a problem
Until the smell got strong
Now, the fabric is unraveling
As the IRS gets many a mention-
And their reputation for misuse
Is guaranteed to get attention
The escalating scandals can’t
Be contained, or made elusive-
And some of the driveby media
Are panting for an exclusive...
I do so love the smell of scandal in the morning-don’t you?
I guess a lymphatic economy that simply limps along is now the norm & no longer a priority....
I think they rejected the weiner in favor of something entirely different.

I was brought up to believe that censorship by any government or other entity is a restriction of individual freedom-it is up to parents alone to regulate what kids are exposed to-and adults can see/hear whatever they want.
I don’t think customer service is high on the list of priorities of most TV channels-they only notice when their viewer base shrinks-and any connection to some reality show person like a kardashian or whatever is reason enough to ignore the whole channel.
I’ve been a rock fan ever since I can remember, having parents who were rock fans-but I didn’t (and don’t) like the whiny, angst filled music from Seattle, Sweden, Denmark or wherever-the reason there is a high suicide rate in those low-sunshine places is, in large part because much of the population suffers from seasonal affective disorder-humans need rather a lot of sunshine/light.
In my opinion, if a kid (or adult) is modeling their life on music, they are in need of therapy, and something constructive to do-like getting a life. Blaming music or other media-like Tipper Gore famously did-for kids not having any sense/doing stupid things is a cop-out-parents need to be responsible for their kids-as in actually behave like parents. (As I step down from soapbox and exit stage right)...
Did you try Whyisa’s link? How is your knee?
i hope that something comes of it!! A++++ great pome.
isn’t he focusing on it like a laser now after pivoting... ? ; )
i agree with you T5. I have often said that if you aren’t pouring morals/religion into your kids and are leaving a vacuum, the popular culture will do your job for you and fill them full of poison. They will believe that mindless sex starting at puberty is the norm and expected. They will be densensitized to violence, like that advocated in the song that AFTR is incensed about, and the value of human life is thought de minimus, because their parents haven’t spoken to them about the horrors of abortion, killing millions. Suicide is thought to be a viable option to solve every day problems like bullying, lost boyfriends/girlfriends, failing to get into whatever school they want etc. because they are not taught to value themselves because they don’t feel properly valued by their families, or they aren’t given the coping skills for problems we all faced in our own youth. There is so very much wrong in society today, and it stems from a lack of God-centered parenting.
On my way to my car last thursday, leaving work, i was in the elevator in the parking garage with a lady who said to me, did you have a good day at work today. i answered, it was ok, i am happy to have a job, etc. and she said yeah, that her days are difficult bc she works with juveniles, attempting to keep them out of jail etc. And i said i did not envy her, that it has to be a hard job and that it stemmed from parents failing to parent their children.
F everyone’s I, there is a song out there entitled Too Drunk to F!@#. I was dumbfounded when i saw that as a song title, so yeah, lots worse out there....
my next door neighbors, an alcoholic and a child physiologist, moved out and left their home where their eldest still lives...driving the entire neighborhood nuts. I think of them and the lousy job they did daily.
I made a call about a puppy today. DH is dragging his feet. Won’t even give me an answer. He wants to check out the breeder, then MAYBE we can go meet her. I am on pins and needles. Trying to be laid back.
I am certainly NOT too old for Disney.
