The Commune’s Favorite Online Crap

yousuckThe Itinerant Artists quote things…a LOT.  Very often, they quote lines from their favorite online videos.  Not actual videos that tell a good story or are worthwhile, mind you, but the stupid crap they watch when they’re bored.  We’re sure many of you have seen at least SOME of these…but here are the videos with which you need to be familiar if you are going to survive an evening at The Commune.  Hopefully, we’ll turn you on to something new with which you can distract yourself at work!

1) Charlie the Unicorn

Not only do we quote this video incessantly, but we embody the characters.  You see, Charlie is pretty much ADAM.  And the other unicorns could be any of the women in the house, but more often than not, they’re LIZ and TERESA LINDSAY made Liz a Charlie the Unicorn birthday cake last year.  To say we love this one would be an understatement.

2) Charlie the Unicorn 2

Not as good as (and WAY more cracked-out than) the first one, but “Put a banana in your ear” has become a cure-all piece of advice at The Commune.

3) Charlie Bit My Finger

LINDSAY knew about this video before TERESA did, but this has become their thing.  If you’re ever at The Commune, you might hear Lindsay say “Chah-lie bit may!”, or Teresa say “That huht, and it’s. Still. Huh-ting!”

4) SBEmail #141: Death Metal

LIZ, ADAM, and TERESA can recite this one word-for-word.  This is one of the more hilarious Strong Bad emails over at, and will have you singing the classic, “Tonite, Wooh-mon!” from the bowels of your lungs.

5) Powered by The Cheat: Rap Song

LIZ and ADAM can sing this in its entirety.  No, really.  They can.  (Please don’t ask them to!)

6) E = MC Vagina

A favorite of all the ladies of The Commune.  Mostly because of its hilarity and its blatant sexism.

7) Fry That Chicken

Loving fried chicken is a long-time running joke at The Commune.  One day, we’ll tell you how it got started.  Or maybe not.  The point is, when Commune Cohort, SHIREEN, heard about it, she turned us on to this video, which we love.

Happy viewing, kids!

Dispatch From The Commune #7: Up and Down and Up Again


First of all, two of our Itinerant Artists have experienced losses in their families recently.  They’re both fine, and The Commune has been giving them hugs this week, but we also ask that anyone reading this keep them in your prayers and thoughts and send your good vibes their way.  Thanks.  Much love and many hugs from The Commune to their respective families.  We wish you all the strength you need to get through this difficult time. 


No.  None of us drew this.

No. None of us drew this.

This has been a strangely up and down week for the Itinerant Artists.  Both TERESA and ADAM had Disappointments in Dateville this past week.  But, while Adam’s disappointment was merely a matter of scheduling and the lady (whom he’s already been out with before) is clearly still interested, Teresa’s first foray into online dating didn’t go nearly as well.  While she had a good time on her date, she doesn’t think any more will come of it.  The silver lining?  Her first online date is over, thereby making subsequent dates easier and less nerve-wracking.  Apparently.

There was some short-lived drama in the house as LINDSAY and Adam got into a big blow-up over their mutually purchased box fan of all things, but that situation has since been smoothed over as both parties realized that the fight was ridiculous to begin with!

Teresa tried going to Lindsay’s cupcake-baking trainer, but after getting lost in Brooklyn trying to meet up with Lindsay there for her first session, she realized that she’d rather excersise closer to her home.  For free. 

It hasn’t been all down and out though.  Example: EMILY’S been coming over to satisfy her new Star Trek addiction.  She’s been watching Next Generation episodes and loving it!  She just may be becoming a Trekkie…

And speaking of Emily.  We’ll have another lawyer in our midst in a couple of years!  Emily just got accepted to Brooklyn Law, meaning that she WON’T BE LEAVING US IN THE FALL!  There has been much Huzzah-ing in the land tonight.  Just this evening there was a celebratory dinner at Igloo, one of The Commune’s favorite local spots, attended by Emily, LIZ, LORI, Adam, and Teresa.  It was there that Emily infected all of their brains with an addictive game where you pretty much just insert the word “vagina” into movie titles for humor value.  Examples:

Dr. Strangelove, or How I Stopped Worrying and Learned to Love the Vagina

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Vagina

Y Tu Mama Vagina

The Land Before Vagina

The Manchurian Vagina.

Go ahead.  TRY not to come up with any of your own.  You can’t HELP yourself, can you?!
