Mr. T – The Mother Song – And Mr. T Medley

As national Mr. T appreciation day, here’s a couple videos:

FEMALE CHORUS: (x2)

Treat her right
Treat your mother right
Treat her right
Treat her right

MR. T’s CHORUS:

Mother
There is no other
Like Mother
So treat Her right
Mother
I always Love Her
My Mother
So treat Her right, treat Her right

M is for the moan, and the miserable groan
from the pain that She felt when I was born

O is for the oven with it’s burnin’ heat
where She stood makin’ sure I had something to eat

T is for the time that She stayed up at night
and took my temperature when I wasn’t feelin’ right

H is for the hard earned money She spent
to keep clothes on my back and try to pay da’ rent

E is every wrinkle I put on Her face
and every worry that I caused when I stayed out late

The last letter R is that She taught me Respect
and for the room up in Heaven that I know She’ll get

MR. T Chorus

Female Chorus

She’s a Queen
Second to none
Take care of Mother
You only get one

Female Chorus

Triplets, Small Horses, and other things

In Williamstown Ma. with cousins now. I’ll spare you all the words and begin this post with a picture of me picking up a horse named Napoleon:

Next, we have a fabulous movie with the triplets. The lighting is bad, but the plot really carries this movie through its beautiful minute.


And now: Here’s that mini horse (named Napoleon [or Polio for short]) galloping across the meadow. Please note the llama stool he’s kicking up.

He’s so majestic.

The National Association of Staredown Professionals

I stumbled across what I thought was a joke feature film showcasing the sport of ‘staredown.’ You know…. gazing dreamily into someone’s eyes until they blink. I figured it was like making a feature film about the IACJ (the International Association of Cat Jugglers). But as it turns out the NASP is a real organization with a genuine rule book. And olympics-like drug restrictions (though you can use eyedrops before a match).

Here’s a quote from the rule book:

B. The Match
i. Staredown does not have a time limit. A match will continue until a winner is determined.
ii. Competitors may not smile during a match. Smiling or laughing is grounds for immediate disqualification.
iii. There are not time-outs in Staredown and no stoppages in play are allowed.
iv. Sneezing and coughing are strictly forbidden.
 iv.1.If a competitor sneezes/coughs on another player he/she is disqualified.
 iv.2.If a competitor turns away to sneeze/cough he/she will be disqualified.

v. Burping is strictly forbidden. A competitor who burps (intentionally or unintentionally) will be disqualified.
vi. Spitting is strictly forbidden. Any competitor who spits in the face of another competitor will immediately be banned from participating in any NASP sactioned event.

So check out ‘Unflinching Triumph.’ A full length completely online film. It seems like a drawn out SNL skit. The people and their issues just don’t seem real.
