I can't recall if it was a kpop video or jpop (but I'm learning toward kpop), but it started off with a girl being put together/built, like she was a cyborg or android of some sort. It's NOT the money song by Wonder Girls; in fact, watching that video is what prompted the memory. I saw it a few months ago; I think it was fairly new, or at least from the past couple of years. IIRC, the music was pop/dancey, and I'm pretty sure it was a solo artist, tho I think she had back-up dancers so it *could* have been a girl group (but I'm thinking solo artist).
It was sung by a girl.

THIS IS DRIVING ME SO CRAZY. I can't even explain the amount of searching I've been doing, I am truly obsessed with finding this out.
Does anyone rememember an episode of an obscure science fiction anthology series shown on channel 4 in the uk in the eighties about some people from out of space coming to earth in a van. From the inside they looked normal, but there were shots of the van as a toy van and the people as barbie/ken dolls. They get run over at the end by a car and you see the van and the crew broken to pieces on the roadside.

Aside from that, the main thing that I can remember is them chanting "Increase the Vat" over and over, in refererence to a cauldron. but it was really a play on words of VAT (Value Added Tax).

I know this happened because I remember talking to a friend about it at school and can only remember a few things about it as I was quite young at the time.

Which music video is this Prince gif from (sans Rpattz obviously)?


Thanks in advance

Found: Black Sweat - Prince
I chatted with another LJer some years ago and she lives in northern Italy, Tuscany as I recall.  Anyway, there's a custom among the region's restaurants to hang baggies of water in the kitchen to ward off flies and the baggies have a number written on them?  Like 13 or 42 or 69 or something?  It's, er, bugging me.  It seems she showed me a YouTube video about it ... thanks for any help.

FOUND not YouTube but photos, not on baggies but posted in kitchens.  The secret number is 58.

A few years ago I read a list of rules for living on a website. I don't think it was called that, maybe guidelines?. I think it was written by a woman, possibly a blogger. It might have been a list of what she felt was important.
I think one of the rules/guidelines  was something like -  if you try to help someone they may get angry, don't stop trying to help people.
I thought I bookmarked it, and now I can't find it.

Found! I'm so happy someone knew what it was from my terrible description.

Hello! Does anyone know what kind of plant this is?

The picture was taken along the Long Trail in Southern Vermont, today, April 24th.

Mystery Plant!Collapse )

The girl spends the summer with her best friend's family. The mother is an artist (and I seem to remember MC's mother considering her a housewife), and the father is hotheaded and possibly violent. MC sits with the black sheep brother while he drinks a beer out of a can; the can laying in the yard later infuriates the father, who also gets upset about raccoons and boat trips.

I thought it was "Loon Lake" or "Summer of the Swans," but those are different books altogether.
It's playing in my head at the moment using W.C. Fields' voice, but I'm not 100 per cent sure it was his routine. It's an anecdote and not on film or TV to my recollection. Maybe it was in a book? On Old Time Radio? Argh.

The scene is a bricklaying station on new construction. A novice bricklayer obeys his boss and places a large amount of bricks in the container to be hoisted to the men working on the scaffolding above him. The novice is standing on a board which acts like a teeter-totter and when he hauls on the pulley to lift the container, he himself is tangled in the rope and gets lifted. He's frantic and cuts the rope, which slams him to the ground onto the teeter-totter which then punts the heavy container into the air. He again gets tangled in the rope and is airborne once more. He carefully makes his way down the rope, but winds up on the teeter-totter. The container doesn't reach its intended target on the scaffolding and slams down again on the other side of the teeter-totter. Up the guy goes again! Rinse and repeat.

There might be more to this series of events. These are the ones that stick out. Thanks for any help. I asked at a W.C. Fields website some time back with no reply.
