Sunday Morning Junk...(#whatever)

Hey y'all! Hugs, kisses, yada yada yada...

Well, there's good news, and there's bad news around Andy's Place.

According to a very interesting article on the worldwide computer, "The number of muscles in the human body varies from about 656 to 850, depending on which expert you consult..."

The good news is that at maximum, only 850 muscles in my body are screaming, "Andy, you retarded imbecile! Why did you do this to us?" Actually, I think that 850 number might be a little low. Jeepers, my hair is sore. My nose hair is sore. I think that little hangy-down deal in my throat is sore. That's the bad news. But the good news is that I'm pretty sure I'm above average when it comes to muscular composition.

The water is cut off (if you didn't read the previous post you won't know why), and I'm waiting for everybody to dump their load before I turn it back on to flush, and fill up a few more pitchers and all.

I swear, I do NOT want to crawl back under there today...I'm not even sure I can. It's like I think I need to tie a rope around my leg so that they can pull me out when the muscles say, "the heck with all this! I'm stopping! Now!"

Lowe's and Home Depot are open on Sunday to get plumbing supplies. That's the bad news. But, the good news is that my local True Value guy about 3 minutes away is closed. I really like to patronize the "little guy," so I'll wait on him to open next week. Or maybe around Valentine's Day when I've recovered enough to crawl back under there. We'll see.

There is a story that's been making the rounds for a couple of days, and you've probably already seen it. It seems that some joker is putting together a professional basketball league with no negroes allowed. And, as far as I can tell, no chinks can play either. Just Whitey. I guess it'll be like basketball for hockey players or something.

I hate to tell the fellow, but I don't think it's gonna go over so well. The crowd that WOULD patronize a league like that pretty well runs out of money by Saturday after Friday payday. And, for that crowd, almost all of 'em have been raised with no interest in roundball anyway. And y'all all know what I'm talkin' about. If you don't, I ain't gonna take the time to explain it.

Heck, they've already got something like that. I mean, it's not professional, but have you ever been to a Southern Baptist Men's League tournament? Shoot, I used to play on a men's league team way back when I was a Southern Baptist. Lily.White.

I remember one tournament where some church over in Shreveport that we were supposed to play first showed up with about 3 black guys on their team. I knew it was over when I saw 'em come through the door.

I told my brother-in-law at the time, "we're screwed, man." He said, "Hey, 7 of us showed up tonight. You wanna go bowling?" As I remember, I rolled a 185 that night.

Well, that's about all I've got. Not really. Seeing as it's Sunday and all, let's do something cultural, and artistic, whatayasay?

I am going to repost a video from July of last year. Since we have a multitude of new reader at Andy's Place, you may not have seen it. It is a long video at 8 1/2 minutes. When I came across this video I thought, "8 1/2 minutes...dang, I don't have 8 1/2 minutes to watch a video." But, the source intrigued me. It comes from the TV show, "Ukraine's Got Talent," and the woman is a sand animation artist. Here is what I wrote back in July:

This is something you just have to see to understand. We all know about the television shows "America's Got Talent," and "Britain's Got Talent."

Well one Kseniya Seminova was the winner of this year's "Ukraine's Got Talent." "Ukraine's Got Talent?" Who knew? Not that the Ukraine doesn't have talent, of course...I mean that they had their own talented folks TV show.

About 45 seconds into the video, I was hooked! I did a little research on the worldwide computer, and found that she won a first prize of roughly $125,000. I'd say WORTH EVERY PENNY!

I do not understand the words, of course, but evidently she is telling the story of the beginning of World War II, and life in The Ukraine during the war. In fact, here is a link to a blog post that has a few more details.

Trust me. Take 8 or 9 minutes to watch this. You. Will. Not. Be. Sorry!

Evidently, those that viewed the video agreed.

A comment from Walt:

One of the most impressive acts of artistic creation I've ever seen!

From Paul Mitchell:

And ending the performance with "Nothing Else Matters" from Metallica was extra special. Good job, chica!

From Anonymous:

When you sort Viagra or some other meds in our betray you may be reliable Cheap Discount Cialis Pharmacy On-line that this product just of pre-eminent grade will be delivered to you certainly in time.

Heh! I think the chink REALLY liked it...

So, invest almost 9 minutes of your Sunday, and behold something really impressive.

Well, that's all! Y'all have a good Sunday. I love y'all! I mean it...


  1. I expected one picture not one morphing into another. Great stuff. MUD

  2. I've seen Ms. Seminova's work and thought I might have posted this, too... but a quick blog search sez "no."

    That basketball league thing is making the rounds, too. Like the linked article sez: "It'll never fly."

    Finally... two words: Ben-Gay. ;-)


Don't cuss nobody out, okay?
