Things I Like Thursday, Volume 12

Seen random stuff on the internet that you find hilarious or just want to share? Head over to Gina's to link up!

Yup, it's Thursday again! And I'm once again suffering from a case of super sucky internet. Hopefully by this time tomorrow, it will all be sorted out and I'll basically never have to worry about going over our download limit again. But considering this internet change has now been dragging on for almost a week, I'm not holding my breath...

How slow is it, you ask? I tried to test my internet speed earlier, and the test website kept giving me error messages because it couldn't detect my network...


Let's start with this kind of random but awesome photo shoot of famous meals in literature. This alone should be a sign that uni started back this week - I'm all about the books again!!

As a small piece of self-promotion, you should also check out the latest post in Lor's and my Buffy recaps. Because we're HILARIOUS. 

Next, we have a very VERY young Ryan Gosling getting his dance on in a Mormon talent show. We're talking pre-Mickey Mouse Club Ryan Gosling here. AMAZING.

And finally, we have Gene Kelly tap dancing on roller skates. Sure, the tap dancing noises are dubbed in afterwards. They always are in old movies. But HOLY CRAP. TAP DANCING. ON ROLLER SKATES. This is crazy impressive.

Found something online this week that you desperately need to share? Head over to Gina's and link up!

  1. Oh good. Now I know that our babies will be able to dance as well as act ;)

    1. And sing too - he's in a band! (Hopefully it's better than 30 Odd Foot of Grunts. Although it couldn't be hard...)

  2. I did not know Ryan Gosling was raised Mormon. Learn something new every day, eh?

    Old time dancing is ALWAYS amazing to me. They do that stuff in way fewer takes than we can imagine. Look how rrarely the camera cuts away (in comparison to today's dance-ish movies). Amazing.

    1. I feel like dance movies need to go back to this style of filming. BECAUSE OF REASONS. Although I guess a lot of the time now, they get actors who are famous to convince people to see the movie and use dance doubles, rather than finding dancers who can act and making them famous...

      I think this is why I love Centre Stage as much as I do.

  3. I have a couple of things to say about Gene Kelly,

    1. Men don't wear pants like they used to. I mean seriously - Gene Kelly looks smart in those pants. I love it.

    2. I love all the little throw backs to singing in the rain.

    1. We need to bring back trousers like that. And also men's hats. I would say that we should bring back hats full stop, but down that path lies a lot of hat hair, which seems risky...

      And YES! I loved that too.

  4. 1) I don't remember show first showed me that video of Ryan Gosling, but I loved it. And I immediately shared it with Office Boy, because he has a major man crush on Ryan Gosling.

    2) Gene Kelly is my favorite. Office Boy and I watched Singin' in the Rain on our non-Busch Gardens because he was sick day and he thoroughly enjoyed it. I also showed him this clip because it's Gene Kelly. Tap dancing. ON ROLLER SKATES.

    1. Also that was supposed to say, "I don't remember WHO showed me..." Wow. That was a fail.

    2. I think I could watch that video of Ryan Gosling every day for the rest of time. Because it is AMAZING.

      As is Gene Kelly tap dancing on roller skates. I still can't believe I'd never seen that before!!!


Leave me a comment and I'll love you forever (except for spambots...)
