Seeing as I have just spent a lot of moolah on TV DVD boxsets over the past two weeks, I thought I’d tell you which shows have caught my fancy! I love TV shows, love watching them, but never seem to find the time to do so after work. I go out a lot, and inevitably miss so many episodes of shows that by the time I sit down to watch one, I am absolutely lost! (And not just with LOST either :P) So I find that the best thing to do is buy all of the seasons on DVD and watch them at my leisure – usually at 3AM on a Friday/Saturday night!

So far, my collection entails…

BTVS: Buffy the Vampire Slayer

That’s my collection so far, but I am adding to it almost every other day! 😀 Will keep posting as I buy… This is an extremely fulfilling hobby, watching all of these. Some people go learn another language, or go to a cooking class. This is what I do. And I LOVE IT!

Wacky From The Web Friday, Jan 29 2010 

Okay, so I admit, when I get bored I often find myself mindlessly watching clips on YouTube. It was on one such occasion where I stumbled across “Garfunkel and Oates” , a two women musical comedic duo.

Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci are quirky young women that have, between them, dabbled in acting, music and stand-up comedy, and have become an online phenomenon. Their 2-to-3 minute videos on YouTube feature self written songs about everything from dating and sex, to duck-love and pregnant women. These two extremely talented women are amazing. I cried with laughter while listening to some of their songs – especially when complimented by the petite Kate playing a ukulele!

Kate has had cameo appearances in shows like Scrubs, Malcolm in the Middle and How I Met Your Mother.

Riki has been in even more shows, and is quite a good little actress (in my opinion). Her credits include roles on Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Heroes, The Big Bang Theory, Bones, Criminal Minds, Nip/Tuck, and even roles in a few movies, such as Changeling.

So between the two of them, they are talented little dabblers. But it is their hilarious, self deprecating, bizarre songs that have me hooked. A selection of their songs that I love the most are:

Pregnant Women Are Smug

Me, You And Steve

Silver Lining

They have many, many more songs than just these three, but you can hunt them out yourself! Take the time to have a look – I promise you will have a bit of a chuckle (at least!) over some of their witty lyrics.
