Erik Makes a Banana (part 1)

My brother Josh just found several videos that he made about five years ago. Josh, who was 15 at the time, had recently started experimenting with the backwards function on his video camera and we were basically just goofing around. I think the videos are really funny.

Oh, and I'm 23 in the videos and I look COMPLETELY INSANE.

(There are two videos I want to post, but my brother's video camera just ran out of batteries and we can't charge it [don't ask] and so I can only post one video right now. I'll post the other one later.)

The fact that "I'm 23 in the videos" and that "I look COMPLETELY INSANE" are two totally different unrelated thoughts.

hey Lindsay Lindsay bay-bay.

do you still have the footage of the really-brutally-honest-woman-who-makes-you-and-of-us-feel-uncomfortable-about-race-relationships-on-melrose?

and, do you have the survivor audition from my backyard? i want to see that and your rash again!!! heheehehe

Erik said...

CHRISTY: thank you, i'm glad you enjoyed it. i think that Superman Returns was probably a smidge better than Erik Makes a Banana, but i love that YOU though Erik Makes a Banana was better.

BONNIE: i know. yes. i am a total nut. LOOK AT MY EYES IN THE VIDEO. I am beyond cray cray.

AIMS: unfortch, I think the footage of the banana woman is lost. fortch, i definitely DO have my survivor video, but only on VHS, so I'm going to have to get it uploaded onto a computer to put it online (obvs), but i will do that one of these days because COME ON, it's too much fun not to share.

What I want to know is...what is the writing on your hand? And do you always use your hand as a post it note?

Erik said...

BONBON: it's a singing banana! :)

DRC: i DO always write on my hands like they're post-it notes. I was trying to read what I have written on my hand in the video and all I can make out is "library" which is funny (and sad) because i'm notorious for forgetting to return library books (and am Wanted by nearly every library in Los Angeles).

There are moments that make a mom really proud. This is obviously one of them.

i vomited up a banana last week. but it didn't look pretty like this.

Erik said...

JESSE: you're weird.

BONNIE: I read the same Jane Magazine article you read! (at least, I'm assuming that's where you got the link to Derrick's myspace page) (I just saw it, like, two days ago for the first time) (I love it) (I haven't asked him to be my myspace friend though)

JESSICA (AQR): Awwwwww, thank you cuz.

URP: um, gross. I'm just glad you're not dead. Killed by a Banana would be a kind of embarrassing epitath on a tombstone.

I loved the video! LOVED it! I loved it so much I added it to my favorites list at Youtube! Yup, it's right up there with "peanut butter jelly time"! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=areyUfCNFxY

Ironically enough...both are banana themed...

Erik said...

nichole, awwwww! Thanks! I've never been "favorited" before! That's so funny that you mentioned the "peanut butter and jelly time" video, because my banana making hijinks made BonBon think of "peanut butter and jelly time" too.

Ironically, I have never liked peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

(That's a lie. I spent my entire childhood hating peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and I actually recently changed my tune--new taste buds, I guess--and decided that I actually DO like peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, but I like to publicly maintain my dislike for peanut butter and jelly.) (No particular reason.)

No! I do not read JANE. I just started looking through one of my friends' friends (she's a reality show vet, and she did the whole "Fishbowl" talkshow circuit and knows all of these reality show kids) and their friends... and eventually found pretty much ALL of the Fresh Meaters.

I didn't friend request him either.

I'm lame.
