purified, hydrated and patriotic!

As I rushed to make an appointment I took a sip of my water and took notice of the brand of water I was drinking. "Pure American" Yeah, Freedom Water! As the soothing liquid went down my throat I felt so enriched, so refreshed -- so American! By the way, it is on sale at Walgreens --- for fifty cents! Freedom water. You can get it cheap! ...Of course we all know what freedom really is -- just another word for nothing left to lose. Which is why, I guess, none of us are really free.

As I was picking up my Freedom Water earlier in the day, I noticed that their sattelite radio was playing "You Light Up My Life" by one Miss Debbie Boone -- and, then I had to pop into 7-11 for gum when I was greeted by "Emotion" performed by the one and only Samantha Sang (the original version!?!?!) --- AND, then Lee's sandwhich shop was sound decorated by the stains of John Sebastion performing the theme to Welcom Back, Kotter! Was today 1977?!?!?

Oh, and I should note that I've been consumed with thoughts of Sidney Lumet's ill-fated attempt at the film musical. ...Hia cinematic take on THE WIZ in which we, the public, were exposed Diana Ross in a really short afro at 40 playing 20. I don't know. Maybe it is because Nipsey Russell just recently died or maybe I desire to see a moment in time when Michael Jackson looked more human as a funky scare crow than as a father. ...but I feel the need to ease on down that rocky road that crashed more than a few screen careers. Ah, yes, my odd cinematic desires. Call for help if I feel the urge to watch George Burns and the Bee Gees smear crap on the magic that was SGT PEPPER'S LONELY HEARTS CLUB BAND! ...please!

And yet I still think it's perfectly normal for someone (including myself) to have a strong desire to live a life of Can't Stop The Music with the Village People.

The construction worker / lineman was soooo hot!

The Wiz is one of my all time favorite guilty pleasures. I can watch it at any time...and just love it.

(I realize that if the guy I'm currently seeing read this I would loose all of my cool qoutient points...but camp musical are just good gay fun!)

L'eau du libre? L'eau du gratuis? I don't know the French translation there... but it sounds better than what Karl's been drinking!

I never saw The Wiz. It sounds like you stepped out of your door and into a time machine. Yikes!

But it's all good... you sound so happy.

Milford -- Ah, yes -- NYC 1980 with Bruce Jenner before he lost his nose! I think I was always more into the Native American Villiage Person. Plus, I enjoyed that noise he made throughout that horror film!

Jon -- Yeah, a good deal. Freedom fries are OK, but I think I am all about the Freedom Toast.

Underling --- Ah, I wish you were here to watch it with me!

Karyn -- Yeah, things are good! What has Karl been drinking?!?!!? I need to visit my fave blogs!!!! Only just got home.

My mom tells me that, as a little one, whenever I would hear "You Light Up My Life" I would bust out singing and crying at the same time. What a drama queen.
