Prepare to be underwhelmed.

Drawings, Videos

It’s incredibly cold here now, and it reminded me that last winter I started a movie and never finished it. It has sat on my computer until tonight, when I drew up the last cartoons for it and just got it over with. “Good enough for who it’s for” and all that.

In reality, I had to just get it out there because it’s irrelevant now. It’s a gripping documentary about how cold I keep our house in winter, except now that the new windows are in, I am allowing degrees and degrees more heat to be BTU’d around here. (Like – two of them!) Also, now you know about the nose warmer.

Here is a list of things that are wrong with this movie:
1. It does not star Julia Roberts and Adrian Grenier, who are our preferred stand-ins.
2. Lloyd doesn’t like how he’s singing.
3. I don’t like how I’m singing.
4. I think Lloyd doesn’t like how I’m singing.
5. The drawings are terrible.
6. There are no transitions and the timing is off.
7. I have some typos because I forgot how the song went.
8. There is a LOT of white-out on those drawings, but not enough.

All that being said, here it is: Baby, It’s Cold Inside.

    Ha! It’s excellent!

    I had to google Adrian Grenier, but once I saw his picture, I remembered him from the “Britney Spears: Greatest Hits -- My Prerogative” video.

    (Holy cow! Did you know that’s how you spell “prerogative”? I always thought it was “perogative”. Wow! My mind is blown!)

      I’m still trying to process this sentence: I remembered him from the “Britney Spears: Greatest Hits – My Prerogative” video.


      • Brad Said on:

        Hehe… I went to IMDb to see what he had been in. I did actually see “The Devil Wears Prada”, but I hadn’t seen the other things -- not even the Britney Spears video.

    Peggy -- no elf costumes, but I’m pretty sure Lloyd was wearing a parka during the recording session.

    That was adorable…but I don’t want to show it to my husband because we keep our house at 56F and I know he’d be jealous…No one should be able to complain about 65F--that’s like, my mother’s house!


  20. Kristi Said on:

    Still a classic!
