…especially since I’ve been taking summer classes and all, and I know I should be posting about things more relevant than this (not to mention get back on that whole “Video of the Week” thing being posted on an actual weekly basis), but this fanvid made me so excited, I just had to share it with the world.  See, being a fan of The Mighty Boosh for a little over a year now, I’ve always felt something was missing from YouTube amidst the countless fanvids devoted to the alleged (oh, who am I kidding?  It’s been blatant since the penultimate episode, “Party”) romance between main characters Howard Moon and Vince Noir and the innumerable mash-ups of Lady Gaga and Old Gregg.  And that something was a fanvid set to a song which I always believed was quite clearly the unofficial theme song of both the show’s resident fashionista Vince Noir, and the real-life glam goddess who plays him, Noel Fielding.  And yet, a Fielding/Noir fanvid containing the song in question was inexplicably absent from the archives of YouTube until my most recent semi-daily Noel Fielding YouTube search just a half hour ago.  Behold, mortals, the wonder that is Noel Fielding, the magnificent English comedian/artist/game show contestant/androgyne/eccentric/prolific music video star!

In fact, maybe my next “Video of the Week” should be one featuring this guy…he’s been in so many, he could give Alicia Silverstone a run for her money.  Okay, maybe I’m exaggerating there.  But for a while he was for Robots in Disguise what Tawny Kitane (sp?) was for Whitesnake.

Hey, readers, you know how a couple weeks ago I declared it “Bitch About the Media and Stuff Week”, posted just one legitimate article, and then didn’t follow through at all?  Sorry about that.  Sometimes all that ambition implodes into a writer’s block with me.  Instead, from now on I intend to do away with the time limit thing and start a new category called “Bitchings About the Media and Stuff” (which I’ll probably put as a subcategory under “Rants and Raves”), since I have a lot to kvetch about regarding the media, but, due to school-related priorities and unpredictable bouts of writer’s block, cannot expect myself to get it all done within a set time frame.  That will be all for now.
