Bizarro YouTube

Today, Alex has outdone herself.

She has posted two, count 'em two (one, two) of the most bizarre YouTube finds I have ever laid eyes on.

On viewing the first clip, I thought of the comment a suburban mom made after seeing a kid's show I did a few years ago at Lifeline Theatre entitled LIZARD MUSIC. And yes, true to it's name, it was a musical sung by lizards - - well, actors dressed as lizards - - and we popped in and out of television sets all around the theatre while singing the entire musical's score a capella.

After one of the performances of this truly bizarre show, a suburban mom - - so conservative, she would make Charlotte Church look like a slut- - said to me...

"I've never dropped acid, but this is what I imagine it's like."

So, not to be out-done in the eternal quest for "Most Bizarre Star Combo in a YouTube Clip" - - Alex, I'll see your "Bette Davis" clip and your "Bette / Chita / Rita" clip and I'll raise you with this...

Carol Burnett AND...

Chita Rivera AND...

Caterina Valente (so unknown, even I don't know her)...

all singing I ENJOY BEING A GIRL...

in a graveyard...

dressed like Morticia Addams.

And just to seal the deal...

This clip begins with Boris Karloff playing a grave digger...

and ends with Boris Karloff...

singing CHIM CHIM CHER-EE...

from MARY POPPINS.



There it is. Proof that Darwin might possibly have been wrong.

Alex? Rebuttal?

Alex - Now, I wore a g-string and danced to Madonna music for your directoral debut - - you can't hate me. :)

Kristie - Thank you. So, Kristie, you're saying that Stephen is in the lead over Alex with a score of 1 to 0?

TreeHorne, a friend of mine, posts some great things on youtube.

Check out his other clips - my favorite is the clip of Carol singing "That's How Young I Feel." With Tommy Tune and the cast of Seesaw as a group of very happy hippies.

i KNOW you're not dishing the (mor)tish?!
every single halloween from the age of 13 to post-baby, can't fit my fatass in- 24, i dressed as moriticia in the most fab dress that my sweet mom made. she never "got it" but that didn't stop her.
maybe it's time to get another dress made. with a built-in girdle.

Stephen Rader said...

psycho-therpist - Oh no! Never would I EVER dish Morticia! She's definitely one of my idols.

And if you get that new Morticia dress made, could you send me the pattern? :)
