Wink vs. Blink

posted by on October 21 at 8:53 AM

I’m not sure I get this video—winks versus blinks?—but it brings together two of Slog’s all-time favorite subjects. And, hey, any excuse to hear this gorgeous version of “Danke Schoen” is welcome…

I made it 50 seconds. Is that a record?

I'm really disturbed by how...pretty Chris Crocker is in this video. Does this make me bi?

Look at his recent posts, Dan. Crocker has gone full-blown opposite end of the only-semi-crazy spectrum. If you weren't so stalwart about things you used to think were awesome (and can not change your opinion no matter what for fear of being understandably wrong) still being awesome, you'd have been over this freak as long ago as the rest of us.

I am over Mr. Crocker—I'm only passing on a video that was passed on to me. It's not meant to be interpreted as an endorsement... of Crocker *or* Palin.

Yep, 50 seconds was my limit, too. I'm glad Chris is living the dream, but I don't really feel like watching him blink at me any longer than necessary.

It's looooong, isn't it? I'm not even going to try.

Remember before YouTube, when all the dull bits ended up on the "cutting room floor", as it was called? Now there is no cutting room, and no floor.

Only made it 30. We should start filming reaction videos.

You aren't over Crocker. Just passing it along? What a limpdik excuse. Stand up for the horrible shit you like. I voted for Dino. There is no shame.

What does it say about me that I think Chris Crocker looks prettier than Sarah Palin... at least in this video?

Oh, haters. Just close your eyes and enjoy the song.

I'd have to agree nonetheless, Dan @15. I can hate, but nobody is exactly downloading my songs off of iTunes (if there were any).


grrr

I made it all the way to the end, but I cheated. I was reading something else while Wayne Newton swung it in the background.

Shouldn't that be Wink versus Twink?

Crocker's going to be a pretty girl when he starts getting the hormones. I'm happy for him.

*shiver* I'd rather be listening to Ben Stein.
(no, I wouldn't, but you know what I mean.)

I'd rather Sarah Palin get appointed Queen for life than so much as see that Crocker guy's face posted online.

does this mean chris crocker doesn't know how to wink, so he just blinks, instead? could his lack of talent really be that extensive?

This could have been summed up in 10 seconds. Way to waste my time.

Umm.. it was more about the late great Miss Peggy Lee than it ever was about either Palin or Crocker... Thanks,Dan!
