those of you who don't live in seattle may not know about nye's work in "almost live". here's my favorite of his clips, "speedwalker".

mary tyler mooretilla

mary tyler moore in hot sauce on a flour tortilla.

if i ever make it to minneapolis, i'm *totally* buying a tamoshanter so i can throw it in the air.

a special thanks goes out to leff, the greatest bf in the world, who pushed the hot sauce through the stencil. (i hurt my leg and am unable to stand at the moment. (i'm telling you, i hit 35 and i freakin' fall apart!))

big petezza sauce and cloris bleachman

mike maronna as big pete wrigley (from "the adventures of pete and pete") made from pizza sauce.

i've always kinda' crushed on mike maronna (even though he's my little bro's age and that weirds me out a teeny bit). i mean, i even liked him as stuart, the ameritrade shill.

but enough about that, here's cloris bleachman.

cloris leachman made from bleach.

some people may know her from her stint on "dancing with the stars" but i'll always be fond of her role as phyllis lindstrom on "the mary tyler moore show".

sumack daddy

robert reed made from sumac.

robert reed's role as mike brady was *such* a mack daddy! you'd have to be to be able to pull off the brady perm!

angela lansberry

angela lansbury made from the juice of heated blueberries.

i've admitted it before in public, so i'll admit it again. i love "murder, she wrote".

why? i'll give you two reasons. 1) it helps me fall asleep. (i'm a die hard insomniac and take the zzzzs however i can get them.) 2) it allows me to play six degrees of angela lansbury. for real, she's more connected than kevin bacon!

one way to kill a twinkie-- twinkeith richards

cakespy jessie is working on a top secret mission. since she has yet to divulge her plans, i can only tell you that i was assigned one way to kill a twinkie. i did that by making a twinkeith richards.

keith richards made from twinkie cream.

here's keith with the confection that has almost as long of a shelf life as he does.

i'll give you an updated cakespy link once the records have been released. until then, enjoy a related post: basalmick jagger.

salty dog

lassie made from salt.

arr and avast! leff's favorite gin drink is a salty dog. i prefer greyhounds when it comes to grapefruit juice cocktails.

you don't need to remember that, btw. there won't be a quiz.

pixies stix

the pixies made from pixy stix.

i'm *so* excited about getting netflix on our xbox! now i can watch loudquietloud any freakin' time i want! (see, it was related to the pixies. heh heh!)

sugaru miyamoto

shigeru miyamoto made from sugar.

i adore shigeru miaymoto. he's without a doubt my favorite video game designer in the world! (a close second, toru iwantani and then there's my great love for keita takahasi. but i digress...)

anyway, why am i bringing up the nintendo god today? because i just got "animal crossing: city folk". and while it wasn't designed by the great miyamoto, it is a wii game. a wonderful, wonderful wii game that will no doubt kill whatever remains of my social life.

bill haley's comet

bill haley made from comet cleaner.

i'm not a bill haley fan. (i'm also not really a fan of halley's comet. so disappointing.) still, haley's version of "rocket 88" wasn't that bad. even if "rock around the clock" makes me want to punch someone.

bertie woostershire sauce

yet another super quick wash drawing this morning. (sorry, i'm dealing with serious back pain.) today it's hugh laurie as wodehouse's bertie wooster made from worcestershire sauce.

if you've never seen the frye and laurie "jeeves and wooster" series, you should absolutely spend some time with it. clive exton, one of my favorite television writers, adapted it from the orignial stories which, btw, are also fantastic.

yakeithsoba sauce

a really quick wash drawing of keith olbermann made from yakisoba sauce.

i could *not* have made it through this last election cycle without olbermann's and rachel maddow's analysis of events.

for your dining pleasure, here's an olbermann ink blot (also made of yakisoba sauce).

chilee majors

don't you just love this opening? it's so dramatic.

tonkatsusan st. james

susan saint james made from tonkatsu sauce.

i adore susan saint james. not only did she make me feel more confident about my stick straight hair when i was a kid but she also rocked both "mcmillan and wife" and "kate & allie"

max factor

max from "sam and max" made from max factor powder.

leff and i just got the new "sam and max" game. we'd been waiting for it to come out for-EV-er. (ok, it wasn't like "duke nukem forever" forever, but you get what i'm saying.)

so far, we're pretty happy with it despite its glitchiness.

gingifer saunders

jennifer saunders made from ginger paste.

"french and saunders" and "abfab" are two standbys at casa rakkaleff. this is possibly why so many people think we are secretly british.

yellow belly

tanya donnelly formerly of belly made with yellow food dye.

all of these years later i'm still not entirely sure what "feed the tree" was supposed to be about. (although, yes, i've heard it's supposedly a metaphor about commitment and respect).

i can, however, tell you from laaaaaaame experience that in the early '90s in kvegas it was occasionally used as a pickup line. a horrible, horrible pickup line that never worked and would cause my friends and i to leave the bar.

colonel mustard paste

colonel mustard made from mustard paste.

i've heard that the new versions of clue have gotten rid of the col mustard character. that's such sad news on veteran's day.

patty duke

patty duke on a veggie pizza patty.

i still for the life of me don't understand how you can have identical cousins.

i have to admit to this clip being my favorite patty duke scene of all time. neely! neely o'hara!! hee hee!

garlic garland

judy garland made from garlic paste.

oh, judy, judy, judy! i have a love/hate relationship with mrs. garland née gumm. mainly because i'm always asked if i'm related to her.

the answer is no. garland was a stage name. thanks for asking.

barack oatbama

as promised since i'm still drunk on hopeanol, here's a new barack. (he goes well with the pop barack from the dnc.)

obama made from two types of uncooked oatmeal. (steel cut and instant)

two kinds for unity, kids. i'm corny that way.

peter campbell's cream of mushroom soup and peggy olayson

sorry about posting these so late in the day but i'm hungover on hope. (well, that and celebratory booze. heh heh.)

anyway, here are the remaining "mad men" fugitives. i've decided to make this a "work week" so there will be only five.

first up, peter campbell's cream of mushroom soup.

peter campbell made from campbell's cream of mushroom soup.

and peggy olayson.

peggy olson made from oil of olay.

what? i'm 35 and i still get carded. i stand by the oil of old lady.

a warning to those of you who aren't into the whole politics thing. i'll probably be making a few obama fugitives in the next couple of days. it can't be helped. i'm really and truly excited the election results!!

back on wed with two more mad men fugtives

i've got to get through the election and the returns before i'm able to post again. sorry for the inconvenience.

mad men--(fake) bajoaney sandwich

joan holloway on fake bologna.

goodness, i love joan! she's so bitchy and gorgeous! i would *kill* to have her shade of red!

mad men--won ton don

don draper on won ton wrappers.

how can you help but love a character who says things like "let's take it a little slower. i don't want to wake up pregnant." and "nostalgia - it's delicate, but potent."

add to this that jon hamm (who plays don draper) is rumored to be playing liz lemon's love interest on future episodes of "30 rock" and you'll understand why i'm swooning.

mad men--aquanetty draper

i'm back from my short trip and ready to start a week of "mad men" fugitives! first up is an aquanetty draper.

betty draper made from aquanet hair spray on cardboard.

yes, she's a bit difficult to see. sorry about that.

if you were born after the 1980's, you might not be familiar with aquanet. leff keeps daring me to rat my hair into a "mall claw" but i'm not doing it.

back on sunday

sorry for the short notice but i'm taking a spur of the moment road trip today. back on sunday with a new series of fugitives. (a hint: it involves the show that i'm currently obsessing over.)
