Because Every Blog Needs a Jingle

Monday, December 1, 2008

There's a series over on Comedy.com called Geek Pad, which is a "weekly roundup on the latest in news and gadgets". This past week the show's creators and hosts, Sam Riegel and Rob Blatt, honored me with a gift. The gift...of music.

Hit it, boys!



(This is the whole episode. If you get impatient, skip ahead to 1:27. Oh, and parents: be aware there is some mild language in the vid.)

I would like to thank Sam and Rob not only for the music (the song I'm playing), but also for being such devastatingly intelligent, witty, and attractive guys. Impeccable taste AND funny to boot? You two feel free to geek out at my pad anytime.

You know, to play cards. My hubby and I are always looking for new Spades partners.

:)

Yay and hooray! Definitely well deserved props, Jen. You are already a legend. Did you notice me in the video? I'm the one passed out on the floor with an empty bottle of Cabernet! Good times!

yousuckatcraigslist said...

I'm Losing It! said...

Is there any way you can have that jingle play whenever someone opens your blog? Just wonderin'.

ValGal said...

SO AWESOME LOL! Too bad they didn't get the whole professional cake thing but still totally rad ROFL.

Ekio Locatiare said...

Ha! Thats great ^-^

I've shown your blog to my husband and he cannot read it for very long. He's too busy laughing and telling me to stop! ^-~

Keep up the funny, I love it!

Jim and Garret said...

Perfect! Loved it.

Glamorous Life of a House Wife said...

I just found your blog and I am loooving it. So funny!

tamdoll said...

That is so funny, I can't start my day without a laugh at your blog!

Angie [A Whole Lot of Nothing] said...

Ahhhhsome!!!! I wanna jingle!

jen bryner said...

that is awesome! and so funny!!! and can i just say, i LOVE spades!

jennykitten76 said...

I love how they admit they thought it was going to be boring - LOL! Not gonna lie - I thought the same thing :0
BUT - before you delete my comment - our way-too-hasty assumptions turned out to be dead wrong and now your site (along with garfield's daily comic ) are the only add-ons on my yahoo home page. Although now my co-workers think I'm a little looney since I sit alone laughing my @$$ off (I've tried to share with them - but they're not weird enuf to get it).

Holly said...

Hey, that's awesome! Congratulations! Publicity AND a jingle. It doesn't get any better than that. :)

English Fail Blog said...

Absolutely Amazing! The sheer amount that this blog has grown and gained recognition over the last few months is simply mind-blowing! You're truly an inspiration to all us bloggers.

Keep up the great work, Jen! :)

Kelly said...

Damn. Man-on-the-right (also known as microwave cop) has a wedding ring. That ruins my plans for the day.

Anyway, congrats!

Andrea said...

Hilarious! I love Riegel and Blatt (if you haven't already, you have to check out their "weekend plans" music video!)

Way to go - the jingle and the props are so very deserved. The cakes are crazy, but it is the commentary that makes me laugh out loud.

madeline_may said...

Hey... is one of those guys a voice actor? Why do I recognize the voice?

HorribleLicensePlates said...

Haha! That is an awesome vid. Now, if someone could do a jingle for me, I'd have it made in the shade.

Amy Ellen said...

Awesome, everyone needs a theme song, LOL!!! Funny

grats!

Also, you mentioned that there was language, but you didnt mention that there was mention of something every parent of a newborn to 5 year old needs-- a third arm.

Mandy said...

Wow, you are for real famous... that is way awesome, you deserve it, you are very, very funny. Go Jen!!

*Michelle said...

ehhehehe - thats awesome!!! You should see if you can embed that part of the video on your page somewhere. =)

Mari said...

Congratulations, that's awesome!

Laura H said...

Jen, as if coming to this site for the cakes wasn't joyous enough, I love that you give us obscure pop culture references in your blogs.

Obscure ABBA reference FTW!

Kdina said...

Great, now I'm going to be walking around the house singing the Cake Wrecks song all day!

meshealle said...

Truly inspiring. Wonder what the rest of us have to do to get a jingle? :)

Also, I have to wonder if they just didn't happen to come across the naked mohawked babies riding carrots. If they had, surely that one would have made the video.

Congrats!

Just promise me that next week the jingle won't be blaring at me when I click on your site...I'll likely be fired. I can only barely contain my laughter as is.

Dea said...

Awesome!!! Love it - especially their theory on how the wrecks occur!!!

(HEY - for once, my verification is ACTUALLY a real word - blithe!)

fairyhedgehog said...

That's great! Getting a mention is one thing but getting your very own jingle is something else.

Feisty Irish Wench said...

woot!

odd word verf: ressesse - playground, a la Francais style

Red said...

That totally ROCKS!!! So very cool! Btw, wonder where I can get one of those 3rd arms?!

Ross said...

Congratulation

Congratulation

laughingatchaos said...

That's awesome! You have your own soundtrack, now you need this so it can play wherever you go (saw this today and it made me laugh): http://www.thinkgeek.com/tshirts-apparel/unisex/illuminated/a5bf/?cpg=83H

abe said...

so..wheres the wreck?

Dyniece said...

Awesome!!!!!

Scritzy said...

Those guys ROCK, and so do you! The jingle is a much better earworm than some of the horrible "holiday" songs that have begun playing. Yaaaaaaaaaaah!

Word verification: inglorke. Opposite of outglorke.

Sadie Thompson said...

Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! to Laura H for catching the ABBA reference! I was REALLY hoping I wasn't the only one to get it...because it would be just a teensy bit depressing.

JennyKitten76--I know what you mean. I sent the mohawk baby carrot jockey cake to a co-worker and didn't get any reaction at all. What's wrong with people?!?

Word Verification--bolsicin. Only use as directed by your doctor.

Garland said...

Love it!

dlyn said...

Congrats - well deserved!

punxxi said...

NOTORIETY!!!! You are so totally awesome...

punxxi said...

hahahah my words is mentals i am so honored... Yeah Jen needs to go to think geek, but the shirt she needs is the tee shirt plays drama music for you, a personal soundtrack for your life!!! I so want that for Christmas.

This Bug said...

Is that Magnum P.I.

Why why? Hilarious. Congrats.

eba said...

oh too funny. Rob is married to my first cousin, and he is indeed a very funny guy. I *love* Kakerex!

Cake for Breakfast said...

Woohoo for being super famous! Cakes Wrecks takes over the world!

Parthenogenetic said...

Just further proof this is the most entertaining blog out there: how many have other people writing theme songs for them?

Trish said...

That's great!! I love your blog and check it every day. I've even submitted my own cake wreck, but it hasn't made it in. I showed your blog to a friend of mine who is a professional baker, he can't get enough of it!

Thanks for such an enjoyable site, Jen.

Diana said...

awesome! Loved it! never heard of the guys! Now I do!

marymurtz said...

Seriously, this is bigtime! LOL!

I remember reading here when there were one or two comments a post. Congrats on your appeal--as a former cake decorator, I'm happy to just read about the wrecks, and not be featured.

I do carry my camera with me to the store now, just in case!

Cyndi said...

OMG, have you seen the McD commercial with the wedding cake made of McNuggets? The mere thought makes me want to puke, but my first instinct was to find a still for you to post - still looking!

Katy said...

ROFL Love it!

Jennifer Foster said...

Schweeet!

Cassie said...

LMFAO.. Absolute gold!!

your earlier posts were better.

Anonymous said...

That was awesome! And I also loved microwave cops! Ha!!

Anonymous said...

Congrats, although I haven't had a chance to hear it yet, blackberry won't play flash, and can't really blast the jingle in my cubicle!

And please, as already requested, no automatic music on websites!! Some of us would like to keep our jobs, thanks.

And I hate to mention it but...
3 days, no new wreck...need... Wreck... Must. Laugh. Soon...

Heather said...

Spades. I haven't played that since college. Of course that's about all I did in college.

When's the next hand start, I'm there!

Becky B said...

Yay! That is hilareous and so cute to boot. Congrats on the jingle-jangle!

Dana H said...

Heads up - this embedded video triggers an infection warning from anti-spyware software from Computer Associates. It's unclear whether this is any real threat; there are reports of this particular issue giving CA's stuff false positives. The virus it reports is called Actns/Swif.T; worth a lookup if you're concerned.

landa said...

LMAO! That is so awesome!

Susan said...

that is so cool!!!

VLM said...

O....I love this site so much! The cake wrecky, creamy, sweet, filling goodness just makes my day! :)

That theme song was too much!! LOL

Nicole said...

Someone asked if Sam Riegel is a a voice actor; yes, he is! He's probably best known for voicing Donatello of the Ninja Turtles, and he also does voice work for a lot of anime, so if you watch anime you've probably heard his voice somewhere.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Riegel - lists his roles. :)
