Apparently “The Martian” is a comedy.

Greetings, readers!

I notice that The Webmaster and I have been a touch remiss in our analysis of the fluff of modern-day culture. I attempt to fix that with today’s post.

For, you see, “The Martian” has received an award for… “Top Comedy.”

Now, while it some people may disagree with this assessment, I am hesitant to completely condemn its award. Yes, the trailers shown with the movie indicate that it may not be a conventional comedy. But, if one examines the Shakespearean Type of Comedy, The Martian may actually qualify. (Spoilers ahead.) There is a happy ending, after all. And furthermore, you see that multiple of the characters have gotten married– to each other.

There are also no human casualties.

Thus, by the Shakespearean definition, it may qualify as a comedy. Furthermore, it was a well-done movie. Thus, I do not condemn the “Best Comedy” Golden Globe it won two nights ago.

Have a lovely Tuesday.

New Relatively Pointless Song is likely to go Viral

Greetings, readers!

It appears that the Webmaster originally scheduled something about Twitter for today. It can wait.

You see, there is a new song out. It has the potential of going viral at any point in time. It is already receiving publicity from multiple relatively unrelated groups.

The song in question is by Carly Rae Jepson, the creator of “Call Me, Maybe”. Her new song is called “I Really Like You.”

I have a few comments about it, of course.

The first deals with timing. I find it interesting that Carly Rae Jepson released this one in… March. February, after all, is the month of “love.” February 14 would have made a bit more sense for “I really like you” to be released, from a thematic perspective. However, since this song is still being picked up, and is likely only going to gain in popularity, it should not be much of an issue.

This does lead me to my second point, however.

I found it very interesting that the singer acknowledges that she does not “love” the person she is singing about, but instead “really (really … really) like you [the object of the singer’s affection.]”

As per usual with popular songs that go viral, it has a catchy tune. It also does not have much in the way of depth to its content.

Needless to say, “I Really Like You” by Carly Rae Jepson is not my favorite song, but it qualifies as a fluff of the day.

I hope you have a great week.

Happy 2nd Birthday, Total Fluff!

Hiya, Fluffsters!

When I moved Fluffy’s post from yesterday originally, I’d totally forgotten that today marks TWO YEARS OF FLUFF!!

I was going to do a run-through of favorite posts. But the fact of the matter is that I did that for New Years. Especially with the New Year’s post having been less than a month ago, I feel like you’ve gotten enough recycled content…

So instead, I’m going to share with you a Birthday “Card” PDF thingy. I call it Hippo Birdy Two Ewes.

So, Happy Birthday, Total Fluff!
