If you’re unaware of the Umbrella Corporation, here’s a sampling of one of their products:

In reality, it’s a youth-restoring product invented for  a movie/video game series involving zombies.  Or is it?

Musical Musings… Taylor Swift’s Sk8r Boi

Taylor Made In Heaven

I might be setting myself up for ridicule here, but I sure do enjoy the lilting voice of Taylor Swift.  (I’ve talked about her before, and thus handed in my man card.)

I enjoy women singers in general, but the ones that write their own material… they really get through to me.  My stonewalled heart crumbles for these ladies, so go ahead and pick away while my guards are down.

On that note (pun!), allow me to get to my latest musing…

While watching the music video for Taylor’s new song, You Belong With Me, I was reminded of another (though not-quite-as-lilting) songstress… Avril Lavigne.  Namely, her tune Sk8r Boi kickflipped into my brain. 

Both songs deal with the same idea of a guy with the wrong girl and the right girl is right in front of you, but at second glance (the visual as opposed to the aural), I was reminded moreso of a different diddy: Girlfriend (which in turn ripped off the Rubinoos’ I Want To Be Your Boyfriend, but I digress).

Both videos feature multiple performances by the singer with different colored hairstyles, and in each video, their alter egos fight over a boy.  (Christina Aguilera did the same thing in her Candyman video, as did Britney Spears in Toxic, although they weren’t competing with themselves.  I think Mariah Carey did it once, too, but that’s where I’m drawing my line of research.)

I guess what I’m trying to say is two things:

  1. I like Taylor Swift’s version of the age old, um, video (because she’s cute).
  2. I’m changing my desktop background to this (because she’s cute):

Didn't intend for this image to be so creepy...

InASense, Lost… Pillows Reach New Lows

Um…

That’s all I could say after bearing witness to this product:

hugmepillow

Gotta hand it to the inventor. Ha!

The Hug Me Pillow may be a sad find that sort of destroys my insides.  But this may be sadder:

I kneed this. Ha again!

 What has happened to the people that purchase these items?  Some ideas:

  • They’re so used to being with somebody, and they’re currently going through a rough patch.
  • They’re so lonely that anything will do.
  • They can’t find anybody because their fond of sleeping with these kinds of pillows.  So win-win.
  • They’re… um…
We need to introduce these two.  But they can't sleep at the same time (competing styles, you see). They'd be like Ladyhawke!

 I guess there could be worse pillows out there…

Oh, there's still worse...
