For your entertainment...

I need to chill the fuck out.

It is just one of those weeks where I am finding myself surrounded by negativity and I'm letting it all get to me. The frustration, the anger, and the stress are boiling up inside of me. It's not fun.

Oh, and my laptop isn't working again. Lucky me!

This might sound lame, but when I'm feeling this way, one of the ways I cheer myself up is with mindless entertainment. In other words, youtube.

I found these hilarious re-cut movie trailers, which really did put a smile on my face this afternoon. I hope you enjoy them!


Ferris Bueller's Day Off...as an indie drama.




Mary Poppins...as a horror film.




The Shining...as a romantic comedy.




Sleepless in Seattle...as a horror film.




Oceans Eleven...as a Muppet film.



Have a great weekend!

Have you seen the "ET 2" fake trailer? God, it's fantastic. It almost made me think it was real - and I'm hard to fool.

Hope this weekend is better for you, mama!

These were hilarious, Sleepless was fucking awesome! And really, how can you go wrong with The Muppets?

Sorry to hear you're feeling so crappy Jen Ben. If you're looking for mindless entertainment, drop me a line by e-mail or FB. I promise not to have anything too intelligent or heavy to say, but I might have something to make you giggle.

Youtube is a time-sucking vortex from which some never emerge.

Ferris cracked me up! REALLY well done and very funny!

Sherin said...

Awww, oh no. Sorry to hear you've had a bad week!

Love these videos, They're hilarious. Mary Poppins could totally have been a horror movie.

Audrey Allure said...

Haha love the Ferris Bueller & Mary Poppins ones.

Alicia said...

I hate bad weeks that just keep beating you down. I'm happy that you found something to cheer you up though. Mary Poppins as horror film seems to be just the thing to turn a week around!

Olga said...

Christopher said...

Youtube is the best! When I am stressed out, I usually watch episodes of funny TV shows on the internet, and it always helps! Hope you feel better next week :)
