Won't you take me to Funkytown?

Hello, Ducks!

Starzina Starfish-Browne here with your Eric’s! Daily! Horoscope! for ThurstonHowellTheThird’sThirdThirstyThrowBackThursdayInThurgoodMarshall’sThermals, April 24rd , 2014.

Happy Birthday to Richard, who turns twenty-four today in New York.  New York, New York.  The City That Doesn’t Sleep (With Us).  Happy Birthday also to Mark, who also turns twenty-four today, somewhere in New Jersey. We thought of Mark the other day, when he floated across Our SitOnMyFaceBook page…We haven’t seen him in forever, and were wondering if he’d ever realized his ambition of becoming a stripper.

Also, Happy Birthday to Rose, who also turns twenty-four today in Greater Bostonia.  And, last but not Lee Strasberg, Happy Birthday to Our sistah, Carol Ann Carol Ann, who also turns twenty-four today.  Somewhere in Pennsyltucky, allegedly called “Kunkletown”.  Of which We had never heard before. And which immediately made Us think of “Funkytown”.

Oh, shut up; you thought the same thing.

Don’t fight da funk.

In other news, please imagine that the never-ending kitchen renovation next door to OurHouseWhereWeLive is STILL going on, lo these many moons later.  These are ROW HOMES, people…the kitchens are about 12X12…how da fuq much renovatin’ can you renovate?

Switching gears, We now bring you An Inspirational Public Service Announcement:

If you are anything like We are, you sometimes struggle to maintain your positivity amidst the modern morass (more ass?  Yes, We’d love some more…)

(When an eel bites your heel while it’s copping a feel, that’s a moray…)

…what were We talking about?  Oh, yes…if you find yourself becoming pessimistic in the face of the bleakness of modern life, We have stumbled recently across a new mantra which will have you chirping like The Bluebird Of Happiness in no time.  Yes, indeedy-doo, ladies and genitals, just a few repetitions of this one simple phrase and you will see the glass as half full, the grass as greener in your dime bag, and the only darkness before The Donny and Marie Show. (We have no idea what that last bit meant, but bear with Us.)

Repeat this one simple phrase to believe that All Things Are Possible:

Academy Award™-Winner Marisa Tomei

In other news, We are awaiting with bated breath (because We are nothing if not a master breath-bater) the arrival of Our birthday gift of tickets to see Hedwig and the Angry Inch starring Neil Patrick Harris and Lina Wertmuller…

In still other news, please Save The Dates for Thursday, May 8th, for the next installment of The Walker and O’Dare Radio Mystery Hour at the Powel House, and Saturday, May 10th, as the WaitStaff will be playing The Mother of All Match Games at L’Etage.  More on that story as it develops, but inside sources tell Us that Jesus H. Christ’s celebrity chair will be taken by His Mother, Mrs. Mary MotherOfGod! You won’t want to miss THAT!

We suddenly find Ourselves (not that We were looking for Us, but it’s a figger of speech) in the sign of Taurus, Our video for which is above, and here is the link with which you may share it with your friends:

Also, for those of you who like cups of tea, and history, and someone in a tree, here is Our previous Taurus video, which is somewhat of a fillum noir, if you will. (Or even if you won’t…since when is it all about you?):

And here’s the HorrorScope:

Your social connections make life more vibrant — and less treacherous — on a day like today.  (Oh, please.  We haven’t had a “social connection” in years.  Although kudos for “vibrant” and “treacherous” in the same sentence.)

It’s easier than ever for you to see through to the heart of the matter when you’re dealing with emotions.  (Matterheart, Matterhorn, Matterheart, Matter-a-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha-ha…)


Why does it seem so much easier for you to believe that something bad can happen, but so much more difficult to trust in your good fortune?  (Repeat after Us:  Academy Award™-Winner Marisa Tomei.)

That’s the big question you’re facing right now.  (Was that a fat joke?)

You’ve got great potential, but in order to really see it through, you need to believe not only that you have it, but that the universe needs to see you shine.  (This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine…)

(That lyric totally doesn’t work in The Royal We…)

(This little light of Ours, We’re drinking whiskey sours…)

(Oh, wait; never mind.  It works perfectly.)

(Carry on.)

Don’t just question your surroundings (Why not?)

(Heh…see what We did there?)

— question yourself!  (But if We question Ourself, but there’s no one here to see Us talking to Ourself, are We still crazy?  (That’s like the age-old question, if Helen Keller falls down in a forest, is there sound?  (Except without the deaf, dumb, and blind girl.  (Also without the mean pinball.)))

Don’t hang out on your own today.  (Hang out with your wang out, rock out with your cock out…nope, We got nothin’)

You’re sure to feel better about a recent problem if you’ve got your people around to ease the tension.  (Um, as We just said, Helen Keller, forest, sound.  Academy Award™-Winner Marisa Tomei.)

(Why can We not make these bullets go away?)

Bounce a few ideas off those who have been there for you. (Which part of “all alone” is unclear to you?)

Namaste, MotherFuckers.

In gaseousness,

Starzina Starfish-Browne

Starzina Starfish-Browne was born in the wagon of a traveling show…well, okay, not really. She was actually born in Lowake, Texas, the daughter of a beautician and either a garage mechanic or the town mailman. At sixteen, she escaped her humble beginnings by running off with Doctor Browne’s Traveling Medicine Show and, more to the point, Doctor Browne. Following the dissolution of this unfortunate entanglement (Doctor Browne was a Virgo and Starzina is, of course, an Aries), which produced a daughter, Starzina entered a contest in Soap Opera Digest and won a scholarship to Oxford (yes, in ENGLAND), where she earned her doctorate in the newly-created dual major of Astrology and Human Sexuality. There is absolutely NO TRUTH to the rumor that Starzina’s second daughter has Royal blood, despite tabloid photographs allegedly depicting her cavorting on the Italian Riviera with Princes William and Harry, clad only in Prussian helmets and armbands of questionable taste. Starzina currently resides with her daughters in Philadelphia, the City That Loves You (On Your) Back, where she enjoys Double Coupon Day at the local SuperCruise and “encouraging” the coxswain of the Penn rowing team.
