farting in your general direction

While she was doing research for her show tunes radio program ("Wednesday Matinee" on KPBX at 11 am on guess which day of the week), Janean Jorgensen found out about a contest involving the production of a short music video in honor of the hit Broadway show, Monty Python's Spamalot. And entered it. And is now one of only four finalists in the entire country!! (Bobo will see that exclamation mark and raise you one.)

At www2.fanscape.com/spamalot/videocontest , J.J.'s entry is Finalist #2. You have until Oct. 17 to vote for her. You should go do it right now.

You'll need a fast Internet connection, or else call 328-5729 and she'll get you a DVD of the video. Remember, if you can vote for Pedro, you can damn well vote for J.J.

According to Jorgensen, "The video has my little 2-year-old Genevieve, our upstairs neighbor Morrigan, and our friend Shealyn (both of them 5 years old) lip-synching to about a minute’s-worth of music from Spamalot. It includes Knights of the Round Table, the song from Monty Python’s Holy Grail. The video ends with homage to the French scene from Holy Grail (“I [flatulate] in your general direction.”)

Apparently Janean has more delicate sensibilities than the guy who writes the headlines in this blog for me.

Anyway, this borborygmus is for you, kid. Good luck, Ms. Finalist Numero Deux. You've got our vote.

Thanks! Really, just vote for the video you like best. But when you vote, please be sure to use the scroll-down box at the "WATCH ALL FOUR AND VOTE" link on the contest page. There's a 'ratings' thing on the player itself that has nothing to do with the contest. Thanks!
