I know this has nothing to do with living the consciously frugal life, but it is so freakin' hilarious that I just had to share it with you. Yes, it's the equivalent of a forwarded email. Wrong. Just wrong. I know. But if you will click on the link, read through the email exchange and, most importantly, listen to the wee song clips, you will love me for it. I swear. Well, actually, you'll love Amber Tamblyn for it. And you should love her, because she is 101 kinds of fabulous. Great human, fabulous actress, awesome poet. (No, I cannot get her to read your script. No, I will not tell her about this great idea you have.) (Pardon that outburst. LA is full of people who can't seem to speak unless they're trying to get something from you.)
Amber pulled a wee trick on pretty boy Tyrese and the hilarity that ensued is brilliant. Check out her "awareness raps" and then pray she actually makes an album of them. How could you not love such lyrics? "I'm waking up in the morning/I got curlers in my hair/I'm going to the beach going to eat some eggs/I don't give a fuck if that didn't rhyme." (From "Splits") My favorite, of course, is "Contraception Matters," which is a sort of open letter to congress. Not to mention that she refers to herself as the "Hillary Clinton of Ghostface Killahs."
Seriously, people. This shit is hilarious. Give it a read and listen (and excuse the photo at the beginning of this article. It's of the gal that Tyrese originally thought was Ms. Tamblyn):
