Double Gibson

Shit, guys, it’s been a long time since I’ve done a video, and I’m sorry about that. To make it up to you, here’s one with a hairdo because I know how you love those. Spoiler: It fails. (Is that really a spoiler when it’s me we’re talking about?) Also, the video features music by Sam Tsui, and you should totally check him out. (If you can’t see the video, click here!)

    It would be perfect if you were a 70 year old librarian though!

    I actually like how it looks from the back, not so much the front/

    I mean, Sam is really cute… but I still missed your lovely voice! And there was no penis joke (unless he made one in his song and I missed it).

    Is this what they call a ‘messy bun’? If so, you absolutely nailed it. It should be called ‘The crack-whore bun’. I missed you dropping the f-bomb though….

    Just not the same without your witty commentary!

    Aright Aright. Note to self: Self, you are not Joss Whedon and cannot make an episode with no dialog fly. (It was worth a try.)

      That at least takes death of a major character. I’d watch the musical episode though.

      I liked it!

    Music: Fantastic! Dance Moves: Epic! Facial Expressions: Totally worth the video! Hair style? Meh. However, considering my hair is approximately 1 inch long, I really can’t judge. I liked the format; the song title was perfect for one of your trials, lol!!

    I have to admit I have never watched any of your videos, because, well, you’re you and I figured that there was a high probability of something inappropriate for work coming out of my speakers. But, hey, I got earbuds, so I’m good to go! Right?…Alas, no f-bombs in this one. Sadness.

    BUT the expressions made it totally worth it anyway!! lol

      This is the odd one out. There are many videos with f-bombs. 😉

      Look for the ones that involve fire.

    Definitely missed the commentary on this one!

    I liked the music, but missed the fart. Bring the farts back!

    I keep reading the hairdo as “Debbie Gibson” because I am a child of the ’80s. Awesome Captain America shirt, BTW.

    Well obviously it’s not going to work if you do the second roll all the way on top of your head. They need to be one on top of the other for it to look good.

    This is how I feel pretty much EVERY time I try to style my hair.

    This post had been sitting unread in my feed reader for a week because I assumed it was going to be about the cocktail — I don’t drink, so I thought, ‘Hey, this one can wait.’ 😛

    I like the hairdo, though!

    So, I noticed the box of kleenex and what looks like it could possibly be a bottle of lotion on your nightstand… Smart to go with the disposable kleenex, rather than let a towel with lotion and whatnot sit in the hamper for a few days before you get around to laundry 🙂

    Loved this format. It was cute. 🙂 Your niece, however, keeps saying, “No, I want the talking one! Not this one! The talking one! I want Auntie Sonja to talk!”

    Love your attempt at the hairstyle. There is no way in hell I would have ever survived that one so kudos to you for giving it a try. As for Sam Tsui—- I remember seeing him in a Michael Jackson Tribute video that he put out on YouTube back in 2009. It was one of the most amazing tribute videos I had ever seen. I still remember it and still remember his name—hadn’t heard the name since the 2009 video, until I recognized it in your post. Good stuff–everybody here needs to check it out!!

    omg absolutely loved this. laughed through the whole video. I love watching your expressions. Love you!!! Keep up the awesome work 🙂

    This style is so simple and takes a non stylist about a half hour. the hair needs to be prepped (loose curled) and backcombed properly. Also having a 3 way mirror is helpful. Take your time. Practice also makes perfect.
