It's All Because. Have you ever had those days where you're wondering just why everything about your life is feeling like it's going down the toilet bowl? Oded Gross knows, and he will tell you all about it. In a song.

obscure SNL reference

No, sir. That would be an In Living Color reference.

Bah, he gives away the punchline in the title. The panties shot was nice, though.

As a gay, jewish, black, elderly Guatemalan, I take offense at this.

posted by zachsmind: I see you posted a link to a music video. Here's a link to a crappy site and an obscure and idiotic reference to SNL or something. Would you like me to derail your post?

We've figured it out. Zachsmind is Clippy.

I always thought it was because I just hadn't earned it yet, baby.

Actually I found that Robin Frederick website by pure chance, looking for a better link to illuminate the obscure reference, but I couldn't find a better one. I actually started reading this and this Robin chick's pretty good. So I stick my tongue out in your general direction, mister fandango underscore matt type person you.

In Living Color? How could that be? I thought for certain the only funny thing to ever come out of In Living Color was "LEMME SHOW YA SUMPHIN!"

who yew callin' clippy?

In Living Color?

Yep. Calhoun Tubbs, bluesman.

Thanks for the help, but we (The Gays) like the songs to be more memorable. and funny, WAY funnier. And better. and better sung. and the videos shot better. and the pianist to be more subtle. Not that you can bring Yul Brynner back.

If you find it natural to musicalize your hatred of gays, I've got some news for you.

Yep: gays have "reclaimed" hatred-through-music - notorious Nazi skinhead band The Faggot Bashers are opening for the Village People this weekend.

Haven't listened to this song yet, but I know Oded (I used to work with his girlfriend) & some of his lyrics are very clever. In 2003, he performed a few of his songs during intermission at one of my jazz shows. Geez, haven't seen him in ages... it's nice to see his face again. He's a good guy. :)

(Just started watching it... his wife in the video is who I used to work with! What a trip to see them on here!)

It's true! Right after I watched the video, my cat horked up his dinner all over the rug.
