BPAL: Casanova

mireille719 wanted to hear about this one first, so here it is.

From Love Potions:
A rakish blend of leather, anise, lavender, bergamot and amber with tonka, lemon peel and lusty patchouli.

In the vial: Bergamot, lemon, lavender, patchouli like incense.

Wet: This is more like aftershave than perfume. It smells really, really good. I keep wondering where the man is. The man who smells really good. Who should come and talk to me.

Drydown: All the scents have stayed blended in one heavenly bouf. I'm swooning. And I think it's turning me on.

Dude. This needs to be worn by a dude. Who can then come and sit by me and I will stick my nose in his neck.

plasticsturgeon, you might like this one in particular.

the big ending

The "Muppet Morsels" glosses on my season one Muppet Show DVDs are sometimes only loosely related to the episode, so it's hard to remember where this one came from.

I paraphrase: "every skit ends with either an explosion or a digestion." Something blows up, or somebody gets eaten.

It seems to me this could be generally applicable.

Two more episodes: Duncan and Schreiber

I finished writing pretty promptly last night, so had time to watch two episodes of The Muppet Show.

I wasn't all that impressed with the Sandy Duncan episode. She was all right, but didn't light my fire for watching her over and over. The best part was the "At the Dance" skit, which this time was a tango version of the show's theme. And I don't think they could get away with Duncan's opening number today, on a kid's show--it takes place in a bar, and she's fake-drinking the whole time. The running gag about "the legendary banana sketch" was pretty cute; I love it when Kermit freaks out.

The Avery Schreiber episode was one of the better ones. My favorite number was Schreiber's last one, in which he demonstrated his wild vocal talent in a song with no words, accompanied by a host of muppets, including some adorable orange baby Koozebanians.

DR. BUNSEN HONEYDEW: "Think of the safety! Think of the sense of well being! At last your family can be protected from the heartbreak of gorilla invasion."

One thing that's sacrificed by having more episodes on each disk is that you can't skip from scene to scene within an episode. The chapters are all one episode long.
