Which Kind of Serial Killer Are You?

My brother called me the other day and left me a message:
"Hey Sue, I'm driving in the car and was thinking about all those personality quizzes people keep posting on Facebook. They are always so sweet and make you feel better about yourself. I think it would hilarious if there was one like ' which serial killer are you?' What do you think? Could you make something like that?"

Yes, Mike, yes I can.

I Got It On Steinway

I've lived in Astoria, NY for about ten years now. When I first moved here I did what I always do whenever I'm in a new place, I watched the local news. While I was watching the amazing New York 1 I saw a commercial with a woman with a Janice-from-Friends-esq accent tawk about all the great things on Steinway. I thought it was hysterical. I told everyone about it.
No one ever saw it.
It was like my mind manifested a crazy ridiculous commercial.
While I still stand by my claim that it was a legit commercial, I realized the only way to make this hallucination a reality was to make it. I decided then and there I would make this video.
And 10 years later, I finally did with the help of Chelsea White, Jess Wood and Chris Doucette.
About 5 days ago we posted it, and thanks to the fellow lovers of Steinway, Astoria, and bad New York accents we've had over 1,500 views!
I'm in love with the fact that the commercial that's made me chuckle for a decade is now cracking others up.
I hope you enjoy it, share it, and get to Steinway to see just how wonderfully crazy this street is, today!!

Astoria Disturbia

My mother is always very worried about me living in the city. Even though:

  • I've lived in Queens for 10 years
  • She used to work in the city when Times Square wasn't Disney Land
  • I live in an extremely safe neighborhood
I reassure her of the safety of my neighborhood often. So, this morning while walking the streets I love so very much,  when I saw roads blocked off and tons of police all I could think of was 

Crap. Someone died. 
This is gonna hit the news! 
My mom watches the news all day! 
I'll never be able to convince her it's safe to walk at night again..
I bet there's a serial killer. Watch, they found a ton of bodies. 
I live next to Dexter. 

As I walked closer, I noticed that one of the cops wasn't dressed in uniform. 

Damn, they have an undercover dude. I bet it's like The Wire. There were drug murders, and they found bodies in that house that's all boarded up.

Then, I finally get to the scene.
The blocked off street.
The cop cars. 
The van with all the camera equipment.

Turns out, they were filming Nurse Jackie.

I wasn't that far off though.. it did involve a TV Show.

Makin' Memes, Makin' Money

I'm spending most of my days and nights watching TV, taking screenshots of shows I'm watching, making those shots into memes - and then tweeting and Facbooking about those shows and memes. I do all of this for money, which is unfreakin' believable. Seriously, my mom doesn't even believe me. I call her and when I tell her what I do for a living she replies, "Susie-Q, are you sure that's what they are paying you to do? I mean, are you supposed to be watching all that TV?"
Yes, and it. is. glorious. Thank you TV Land!
Since my life is less about going out on the town lately, I figured I'd continue the blogging hiatus and take my musings to Tumblr aptly named, The Sue Funke Tumblr.
