Performance Art 2007 Will Not Be Denied!

Lala just reminded me that her craft is not hindered by something as trivial as sobriety. She’s a performance artist of the highest magnitude, yo. (I am completely over the “yo” phenomenon, but I CAN’T STOP TYPING IT.) It is I, Duchess of Whoorl, who needs a leetle liquid courage from time to time.

And since the liquid courage will be a-flowin’, we just might attempt a video post while in Santa Fe. What this video entails, we do not know. Frankly, I find video blogs to be a bit creepy. I mean, a video. Of me. On the Interwebs! Creeps McGee. (Not to be confused with Crams McGee, which is entirely a different story. Does anyone else use that phrase? Just me? Ok then.)

However, after ingesting several tequila shots, creepy becomes slightly sketchy. Slightly sketchy turns to into no big deal and no big deal morphs into WE ARE SO FUCKING FUNNY! AND TALENTED! PEOPLE WILL LOVE US! WE’RE TAKING THIS ACT ON THE ROAD!

Does the idea of a poorly-made and possibly humiliating video titillate your senses? With hints of my drunken Oklahoma twang? Possibly singing and/or dancing? If I sense enough interest amongst my fellow users of the Interwebs (who else is loving 30 Rock?), we shall move forward with our plan. The caveat is I DECIDE how many comments equal “interest”, and unfortunately, visions of the hundreds of Crayola crayon comments from earlier this year are filling my head. P.S. – That entry was lost in the Great Whoorl Rebirth, but I remember…oh, I remember…

You do realize this is my insurance from actually having to DO this, right? I am not particularly fond of my video persona. (quivering in fear)

Most importantly, do you have any suggestions for our possible ground-breaking piece of history? If we end up utilizing your idea, I will send you a small token of my appreciation (coming from here).

Not to insinuate we are for sure doing this. That’s up to you guys. (OH HOW LAME IS THAT STATEMENT? COMMENT WHORE, COMMENT WHORE!)

    Oh yeah – drunken video diary. Do it, yo!

    A video diary would definitely be easier than some sort of production…

    Yes please. Let’s see it.

    OF COURSE we want to see a video of you guys living it up. Seeing as how I’m working every day for the next month and a half (weekends included) I think that watching someone else have fun might ease my pain and boredom. (does that guilt trip work?)

    Aw, come on. You know you want to.

    By the way, my liquid courage of choice is scotch because you have to sip it, so you can waffle for much longer over whether to perform.

    DO IT! DO IT!

    And, my suggestion would be a videotaped karaoke performance. The pics of you & your sis performing Pour Some Sugar On Me were the best. I think you’re ready for the next step – videotaping your performance for the Internets to see!

    Well Hell Yes we want to see that shit. Pictures are great but they just don’t show the best side of you as a vidoe can. You could even turn it into some type of audition tape and be on your way to a whole new career. Whoorl the Actress!

    You better do it! Or I’ll leave cat hair in your mail box.

    I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU to do it! And some suggestions: You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’, Always Be My Baby (Mariah), If I Had $1Million Dollars (BNL), Lean On Me, Don’t Speak (No Doubt), Knowing Me Knowing You (ABBA), or any ABBA song, really…

    Not that I would have any experience with singing in public :)

    So you think we should sing?

    God you need a lot of attention! But thankfully, I ALSO need a video of you, wasted, singing and dancing with your knocked-up sister. So we’re copacetic.

    Also, 30 Rock is mah favorite show evah, and I don’t even care that Alec Baldwin is a mean surly sonofabitch…that show SLAYS. And its episodes are on nbc.com in their entirety in case you missed any.

    And that is why I heart DVR.

    LOVE 30 Rock.

    Also, LOVE to see the drunken Whoorl performance art extravaganza. With an Oklahoma twang no less! I have to say, I’ve never pictured you with any sort of accent. :)

    The accent only comes out with alcohol consumption. Thank God.

    Ooh, this is an exciting prospect. Obviously, I’d love to see video
    footage, and so, here are my suggestions for the Whoorl/Lala performance:

    “I Want To Know What Love Is”

    “Cotton Eyed Joe” (I think it goes without saying, but this should involve
    performing the dance, as well.)

    “Every Rose Has Its Thorn”

    and finally:

    “Bohemian Rhapsody”

    My proverbial hat is off to you for even considering this, so here’s an idea
    to mitigate any potential interweb-related embarrassment (and yes, *30 Rock* kicks all kinds of ass; I’ll meet you in the skull of the Statue of Liberty
    to discuss it. ;)) If you do decide to go through with this, DO A VIDEO
    MEME. That’s right; after your performance, tag other bloggers to perform songs of your choosing, and subsequently post it on their blogs. Spread the embarrassment around!

    Leave it to Metalia to come up with the goods. Did I mention I love you?

    My newest plan is to make a YouTube video only available to the people who comment. That way, we can ham it up without feeling like enormous attention-seeking losers.

    Meet you in the skull later, gator.

    I think a “how to” video would be awesome. Even more so then one with singing and dancing.

    I like it.

    “Meat. It’s the new bread!”

    “I want to kiss your new boyfriend on the mouth Lemon.”

    “Ouch! My bones!”

    I have every 30 Rock DVR’d and watch them way too much.

    I’m thinking either 80’s type infomercial or boy band performance? Have fun w/ the fam!

    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve used the phrase “I have hollow bones” in the past week. :)
