Having an Oh Fer Fuck's Sake! Moment

I notice that I just dealt with a butt-load of intense issues today. It seems like, everywhere I turned, there they were --- MY issues.

So, you might say: "Hey, Portly -- what exactly ARE your issues?"

Queerly, they're not so much about queerness.

My issues are, mostly, at this point, about attempting to be an authentic human in an incredibly artificial culture, about being a person attempting to be comfortable with who they are mentally and physically in a culture that attempts to regulate "normalcy" in terms of mental and physical criteria, and about making authentic contact with other human beings in a culture where genuine contact with other human beings is portrayed as "dangerous".

In light of my issues, I've been working on a light, breezy post about my personal relationship with suicide and rape (OK, don't weird out -- it really IS a serious post, but with me, this type of post can get SERIOUSLY serious).

So, to maintain perspective, and help me to complete this post, I'd like you to preview this:

Wow, all that Flight of the Conchords hype over at, well, you know where, and I go and see it here first.

Not knowing who they were (although I began to suspect partway through) or what was going on, I was a little worried when I immediately began enjoying the video because I went into it assuming that whatever-it-was was an example of the "Oh fer fuck's sake! moment" rather than, presumably, serving as an example of the sort of tone you may have in mind for your upcoming post.

Unless I have it all backwards and these gentlemen have mortally offended your sensibilities, in which case fie upon both their houses and how dare they jest about the mortal dangers of unlicensed cutlery.

OTOH, if cutlery is outlawed, only outlaws will have table manners...yeah, I'm going now.

And more important than all of that, big warm hugs as you push your way through the yesterday's swarm of issues.

May today bring lighthearted videos and heartwarming tales of human decency.

Oh no Jennifer -- They haven't offended me at all -- they are my personal therapeutic vehicle of choice when I am taking myself to seriously.

I adore those boys!

Oh fer fuck's sake! Did you see that? That's what I'm talking about when I say Oh fer fuck's sake: Should be "too" seriously.

rassin-frassin spelling.

You know how I feel about MONKEYS! Still making my mind up on the rogue Unicorns lol
Reading what you said about "issues" reminds me once again why I don't have a blog because I would have "ARRRGHHH PEOPLE ARRGGH want to meet and most dont want to meet or just talk about sh*t HULK SMASH"
Very well said on where are society is headed.
(I hope that made sense and not made light of the post you are writing as I've demonstrated by best writing skills above)

Dunno. I'm beginning to like faux humanity meself. It's unreal, man!

And don't tell anyone, but...

The Conchords, meh.

Just my OPINION.

oh no, pido -- you have not made light of my post at all -- in fact, I've been known to turn green and rip my shirt to shreds many and many a day.

Very funny boys; I'd give them a seven. Too much Smothers Brothers to go much higher than that ;)
