Anti-Depressants Anyone?

Well if you’ve read this blog before this post, you know I’ve been suffering a bout of depression lately, and while I’m pretty good at just waiting it out until it passes, and doing a few things to take care of myself, today it was kicking my arse a bit. So I decided to be totally indulgent in something that I KNOW makes me feel good, and that’s Craig Ferguson lip sync videos.

Half an hour later I feel great. I’ve laughed, I’ve chair-danced, I’ve sung and I’ve bought a bunch of songs off iTunes.
Why do I love them? Well firstly because I have a mega crush on Craig. He’s everything that is yum – handsome, funny, intelligent and a complete nutbar sense of humour.
Secondly, because he clearly picks songs he enjoys himself, and has lots of fun dancing around like a nut to, and lip syncing.
The fact that he semi-choreographs some of them cracks me up.
It’s one of the few places you will see a totally unco black dude. The fact that he gets rhythmically pwned by two geeky white guys is hilarious.
The little man in leather trousers has a hot body.
AND THERE ARE PUPPETS PEOPLE!!
So I’m going to share the collection I have found here, and you can come back anytime you like for a dose of Craig’s madness. I am telling you, it’s good for what ails ya.
Britney Spears – Oops I Did it Again
A Duran Duran cover of Grandmaster Flash’s White Lines. Great song.
I think this one is my favourite, mostly because I love the song:
Say Hey (I Love You) – Michael Franti and Spearhead
It’s a Wonderful Night – Fatboy Slim (the first Craig lip sync video I ever saw)
Kronos the Monkey lip syncs to She Taught me To Yodel by Frank Ifield (whom I knew when I was a kid!!!)
Actually I think if you have watched Kronos above and not laughed, I can’t be your friend any more.
Istanbul – They Might be Giants
The Lonely Goatherd from The Sound of Music.
So there you have it. My favourite kind of anti-depressants. And if you dig Craig Ferguson and want to see more of his videos, may I suggest checking out Malinky2Stoatir on YouTube and if you use Twitter, follow @LipSyncingScot who is a fan working to share more of Craig’s work.
