Glee forever!

So there’s been some discussion re: the Take Back the Glee movement on LJ.

I am highly in favour of this whole idea, and not just because the icon attached to that post? Totally my phrase. Just saying. But no, I’ve actually been a firm believer in glee ever since I first encountered the concept in about grade five or so. If for no other reason than that it’s just such a fun word to bat around. To the point where saying it aloud several times running actually induces the state it describes. No, really, give it a try.

*pause*

Not bad, eh? I also recommend wandering around going ‘quack’ for awhile. Or ‘squeak’. Squeak squeak squeak squeak squeak…

[ahem] Right, yes, glee production. While I have no severe traumas to bounce back from – yet, anyway – participation in the movement does seem like a good way to get out from under the dark(ish) cloud of my last post. Clearly, the blogging gods demand sacrifice. Besides which, it fits in neatly with my new YouTube-posting habit.

(Yeah, I know, I know. Next week: I report in breathlessly on how I’ve learned to make my own mood icons!)

Anyhow, for now I present two clips that bring me much personal glee, in the hopes that they may spread some further:

1) Bob & Ray, ‘Champion Low Jumper’ – C’mon, you know I had to. It may help (sorry, guys) that this isn’t a video per se; it’s a recording from their Broadway show, of one of their most famous routines. The screwball logic is just…so…logical.

2) Sesame Street, ‘La La La Song’ – One of the simplest and sweetest of the original Bert & Ernie clips…incidentally, ‘linoleum’ is a really fun word to say, too.
