This Would Be the Marabou Pink Bolero Shruggy Kind of Blog...

In case you missed it: Here's the opening segment
from last night's Logo-TV broadcast of the 2011
NewNowNext Awards, featuring style tips
from Johnny for host James Van Der Beek
beginning at about 1:56.
Very special thanks to Jenn Kittler for the upload!
The entire awards show has already been posted on Logo
for your viewing pleasure. :)

Johnny will be on his way to Budapest sometime today, where he'll be performing in Kings On Ice this Thursday at 7 pm their time, or about noon-ish my time. Then this weekend he'll be skating in Edge of Heaven in Prague, at 8 pm their time on Friday and again at 5:30 pm on Saturday.

And I'll just be here, possibly watching the above clip multiple times in between checking my watch and wondering if it's April 30 yet, because James Van Der Beek is right: "Johnny Weir is one of the funniest human beings I've ever met."

Here's a transcript of the lolariousness:

Johnny: This is a black pant ...

James: What's with the ... ?

Johnny: Oh, you just wear a say-something underpant, and it really will pop. ... They're not baby tees. Don't look at it like that. Your nipples aren't going to show. ... This would be the marabou pink bolero shruggy kind of option ...

(James appears in Johnny's Porno Robot outfit from Eric Alt's Halloween party, October 2010)

James: Dude ....

Johnny is delighted
with James' look!
Johnny: (approvingly) Sex nugget!!

James: I don't know about this, man...

Johnny: You feel uncomfortable?

James: Oh ... I don't ... I don't feel comfortable...

Johnny: Now don't panic.

James: Uh-huh.

Johnny: Always remember: W.W.G.D.

James: "WWGD." What's that?

Johnny: You don't know what that means?

James: No.

Johnny (with fierceness): What Would Gaga Do!

James (thinking): What Would Gaga Do ... ? What Would Gaga Do ... ? What Would Gaga Do ... ?

So now my new fav hashtags are:


And, of course, the "you're a" variations:


"Sex nugget!"
I'm sure my friend Nancy Knisley will be blogging this whole segment any minute now on her Quotable Johnny Weir blog, and that's good news for us, because she's drawing ever closer to that 1,000th Weirism. And that means it's almost time for another Quotable Johnny Weir Trivia Quiz!

Nancy posted quote #500 back on November 9, 2010, so we celebrated with a two-part trivia quiz here and here. As soon as she hits quote #1000, we'll be running a new quiz on this blog, so get ready to test your knowledge of the Wise and Witty Words of Weirsus!

In the meantime: Johnny, best wishes for safe travels and wonderful shows this week. :)

(BTW I've clearly been buying the wrong kind of underwear my whole entire life...)

There's still time left to bid on Johnny's donation to Figure Skating in Harlem's charity auction! Up for bid until April 20 is his Poker Face costume created especially for the premiere of Skating With the Stars and autographed by Johnny. It's a fabulous item, and the money goes to such a worthwhile cause! #epicwin

Thinking the situation over... The whole idea of overalls is to not have anything binding at the waistline or hip. To have underwear with elastic at the waistline or hipline contradicts the intent of overalls. Thus, we need a designer to think outside of the box and invent overalls styled briefs, so overalls wearers maintain uninhibited tummy breathing.

This would be particularly important for pregnant women who want their babies to have full air and blood circulation. Pregnant women often favor overalls and empire waisted dresses. But they also need a zip-out panel for fast access in case the baby stomps on renal system. (When one follows thoughts to their logical conclusions, the ideas can get rather strange.)
