Yesterday some of you wondered how a “macho” pug like Sid would feel about his love for a pink horse named Derpy going public. Well, somebody must’ve caught on to the fact that his private musings were being shared with the world. Apparently Sid’s Journal is now VERY well hidden. I can’t find it anywhere, but I’m not giving up.
I did notice something odd, though, when I woke up this morning. A new video was being uploaded to the PugSlope YouTube account with the title “Sid the Pug and Derpy Pony.” Unfortunately I couldn’t view it while it was uploading, so while Brian took Sid out for his morning walk, I shuffled through the papers on my desk to see if I could find any clues as to its content. I found the following note:
I finally find my one true toy-mate and all they post on my blog is a stupid photo of me with my tongue hanging out? I let them record twenty-two minutes of footage the other night while I was playing with Derpy. It was great stuff! Golden! Why has nobody edited that footage down into a short video that captures the essence of Derpy’s awesome awesomeness and my awesome manliness? Mom went to film school, for Pete’s sake! Do I have to do everything around here? Geesh!
“Okay, Focus, Sid.” Thanks, Derpy. (Hahaha, like Derpy can talk!)
First things first: Find appropriate song. Catchy but not too obvious. Also not too stupid. Nothing stupid. Like, when I told Timothy about Derpy she started singing that Ginuwine song “Come on and let’s do it, ride it, my pony,” which is apparently one of those songs that pugs her age dance to in the clubs and I don’t want to be associated with such frivolity because it’s dumb and Derpy deserves better, like something timeless and classic that speaks to the long road ahead of us and I know there’s that song about Wild Horses by those Rolling Stones guys who Mom plays all the time and I know everybody says I’ve only just met Derpy but sometimes I truly feel in my heart about Derpy the way that song makes me feel in my heart when I hear it. But, that feeling I feel when I hear that song is a bittersweet longing for a future in which Derpy and I never part, a future that is impossible to attain because all things in this world must someday end, and thus the knowledge of that inevitable end must cloud the happiness of the now like the thin layer of gritty smog between my hometown of Los Angeles and the bring, blue sky, and that’s not how I want people to feel when they see the video of me and Derpy because I want them to only feel the joy and the excitement of our love as it exists today, not the unavoidable heartbreak that resides in the future. Ah! Here we go: an obscure Chubby Checker track called “Pony Time” that sounds exactly like “The Twist.” Done and done.
Step two: Edit the video so it goes really well with the music. DUH.
Step three: Step three should be “eat treats” but those bozos are still sleeping. WHY IS NOBODY FEEDING ME??????
Intriguing, right?! And, guess what?! The video’s finally online:
