Make me think of Eddie Izzard. This bit from Glorious, specifically:

"So it’s a big hole in the whole thing. I mean, with the humans, we understand the idea of good and bad; evil and very, very good – saintly, I suppose, but with animals? What, in fact, is an “evil giraffe”? How do they…? “I will eat all the leaves on this tree. (mimes eating leaves) I will eat more leaves than I should… and then other giraffes may die. (evil chuckle) I am an evil herbivore!” (mimes the giraffe walk) It’s very difficult to be evil. “I will hide berries where no one can see them.” (evil chuckle)"

Since I've been in such a Star Trek mood as of late and what with the lurgy, I mean, swine flu fearmongering going around, I thought it would be a perfect time to post the Eddie Izzard Star Trek skit from "Unrepeatable." And then I realized I posted it in September. So, um, if you feel like reading it, go follow the Eddie Izzard tag and look for the Akadriver is a tasty meat snack entry. :)

I must be eating too much sugar or something, because yellowjackets have been nibbling on me today. Fortunately, they were small nibbles and not very painful.

In celebration of being a tasty meat snack, I bring you Eddie Izzard, from "Unrepeatable", courtesy of Cake or Death: An Eddie Izzard Site.

And because my logic is not like your Earth logic, today's Eddie Topic is Star Trek.

So. There's a Shakespeare meme going around - basically, you see the meme in your friend's list, you quote Shakespeare. While I may do that meme, I do not have any Shakespeare to hand. So I present Christopher Walken doing Shakespeare. Or, more accurately, Eddie Izzard doing an impression of Michael Gaston who is doing an impression of Christopher Walken doing Shakespeare. Confused yet?

Cut for your protection )

And just as an aside, when we saw Eddie in Cleveland, he did that bit punctuated with many Christopher Walken-sounding "Wow-wuh" sounds. It didn't make it to the tape and it should have, damnit.

Avast, me hearties! Since it be Talk Like A Pirate Day , I thought p'rhaps some Eddie Izzard Pirate Style might be interestin'. So here it be, courtesy of the English-to-Pirate translator . Arr!

'So, yeah. There was a lot o' that, and we built up empires - we stole countries! That's what you do, that's how you build an empire. We stole countries with t' cunnin' use o' flags! Ahoy! just sail around t' world and stick a flag in. "I claim India for Britain!" They go, "You can't claim us, we live here! 500 million o' us!" "Do you have a flag?" "We don't need a bloody flag! It's our country, you bastards!
"No flag, no country, you can't have one! That's t' rules that I've just made up, and I'm aftin' it up with this gun that was lent from t' National Rifle Association."'

And done because it's that much closer to Halloween, which makes me think of ghosts which makes me...oh, just read it!

“We will now sing hymn 405, "Oh God, What on Earth Is My Hairdo All About?" ( drearily )"Oh God, what on earth is my hai-airdo..."

There's something weird, something phenomenally dreary about Christian singing. The Gospel singers are the only singers that just go crazy, joyous and it's fucking amazing! And it's born out of kidnapping, imprisonment, slavery, murder, all of that - and this joyous singing! And the Church of England, well, all those sort of Christian religions, which is mainly Caucasian white people, with all the power and money - enough power and money to make Solomon blush, and they're all singing, ( dirge-like ) "Oh, God, our hope in ages past, our hope for years..." They're the only groups of people that could sing, "Hallelujah" without feeling like it's a "Hallelujah!" thing. ( drearily ) "Hallelujah, hallelujah, joyfully we lark about." It's just not kicking, is it? God must be up there going, "What on Earth is that?" God, who is James Mason.

(Imitating Mason ) "What on earth is that, Jesus? Jesus Christ! What on earth is that?"

"Don't take my name in vain, Dad!"

"Jeezy Creezy, what on Earth is that?"

"Don't call me Jeezy Creezy! Look Dad, I went down there, I taught 'em to be hang out, be groovy, drink a bit of wine, they split into different groups!

You've got the Catholics, the Protestants, the Jesuits, the Methodists, the Evangelicals, the free Presbyterians, the locked up Presbyterians... the Quakers, the Bakers, the Candlestick Makers... The Mormons are from Mars, Dad, we've had that checked out."

"And what does the Holy Ghost think of all this?"

"Oh, he's useless, Dad. Got a sheet over his head these days."

( spookily ) "Oh... Holy Ghost! Holy Ghost... Holy Ghost!"

"Holy Ghost, this is not an episode of Scooby Doo!"

"I would have succeeded if it wasn't for those pesky God and Jesus fellows!"

And a meme, LJ cut for your protection and stolen from [ profile] ravenhart. Thanks Rave! :)

"And we end up in a swimming pool, and I'm doing splashy splashy with this girl I really fancy. And she's doing splashy splashy back and I'm going, "Fucking ‘ell, splashy back!" You know, ‘cause splashy splashy is the aquatic equivalent of "Do you want a cup of coffee?" Right? So splashy splashy's going well and I suddenly think, “I know! I'll turn around, I'll do swimmy swimmy, and then maybe she'll do swimmy swimmy too in a kind of chase me-chase me way and then we'd do catchy catchy and underwater sexy sexy!” But I was so elated that splashy splashy was actually working that I just swam like a boy chased by sharky-sharky! I swam, and I swam and I swam, and I was in Egypt when they caught up to me! And that's a long way from England. ‘cause it goes England, Venezuela, Beirut, Africa, Cincinnati, Hanging Gardens of Babylon... It's near Switzerland. So, yeah, it was just… it wasn't working."

Was FABULOUS! And it appears I am not the only birthday girl out there who thought the perfect present was to go see Eddie. There were some really great bits to the show, but as I only got back in town yesterday my brain is still scrambled from the trip. So I spent the weekend in Cleveland. So what?

Doesn't help that work's busy. I will try to organize thoughts. Saturday was fun too. But nothing compares to actually meeting Eddie. And asking him very nicely to sign it Happy Birthday. I knew they said that he wasn't going to sign names. But he asked my name, so. :)

Must. Find. Scanner. :)

Ooh. I'm still all gooey.

Hee. :)

Ahem. At this time Friday I should be in the balcony of the Allen Theatre about to experience Eddie Izzard. I am trying to avoid bouncing off walls. Succeeding mostly, but it's only Tuesday. :)

No. I have nothing to say really. Except I'm seeing Eddie Izzard in Cleveland in October!! Woot!

October is such a great word. Yell it at a passing person sometime. See what they do.

You're just downright silly, but that's exactly what
everyone loves about you.
