    I wanna be famous...
    Gotcha!

    I bet you didn't know I can sing. Yeah, really.

    I bet you also didn't know that I compose the most dreadful, silly songs, mostly about our dogs.

    So I'm bopping around the house singing my puppy song this afternoon and it hits me -- perfect for YouTube.

    Except I don't have the equipment to record and upload this masterpiece.

    And I remembered some people talking about an inexpensive gizmo that lets you do both.

    But I can't remember the name.

    Please tell me what the darn thing is called. I do want to be famous something-awful.

    Muchos!

    I thought you were already famous. At least for us you are. If you must share your talents with the rest of he world, I think the device you're referring to is called The Flip. I haven't tried it myself, but maybe someone else here has and can give you a review.

    Rhea, I would go the old-school route on this one. Scrape up your life savings and take it to a small, dirty recording studio somewhere in Bumblescruff, Tennessee. Record your doggie songs on an 8-track demo tape and then deliver the copies personally to the desks of every major label and FM radio station in North America. Go through agonizing years of rejection and defeat. Finally, settle in to a lounge singer job in a run down jazz club on the outskirts of town, to be discovered just as you've hit rock bottom by a recently fired A&R on the binge to end all binges. He'll view you as his last shot at greatness and maybe, just maybe, your charm and his touching but out-of-date belief in the American dream will take you all the way to the top.

    Screw loading your songs on YouTube. If you believe in it enough, they will come to you.

    Yeah, yeah, yeah, that's it -- the flip. Thanks, rematt!

    I doubt the world is prepared for the lunacy I'm about to visit upon it.

    Actually, I kinda like Louis's idea better. Suffering is the only true route to fame.

    I could care less about fame. I'd just like to be rich... or at the very least, financially independent.

    Oh, and the Flip is a great value... pretty good basic video camera for the money.

    Okay meadowmufn, since you don't want to be famous yourself maybe you can help me accomplish it.

    I need a stage director, I need someone to design a set, I need wardrobe!

    Because while I know what I'm going to be singing during this little escapade I'm not sure how to present the visual aspect of it.

    To give you some idea of how utterly clueless I am, I was thinking of using hand puppets! You know, a dog hand puppet on one hand and a human hand puppet on the other hand.

    As you can see I need help desperately. Anybody got any better ideas?

    Dog puppet on one hand, goat puppet on the other!

    Maybe do a remake of "I've got you babe"? Yeah! I like it!

    Promise me you'll give me VIP tickets to your first show!

    Well I do like action figures. I asked for a Sigmund Freud action figure for Christmas but everybody thought it was a joke so I never got one.

    I've decided that I'm going to video my actual doggies doing all the relentlessly cute, funny and exasperating things they do every day.

    Shot: dogs running downstairs
    Shot: dogs running upstairs
    Shot: dogs waiting impatiently at back door to go out
    Shot: dogs waiting impatiently at back door to come in
    Shot: dogs sleeping on futon in my office
    Shot: dogs fighting over a toy
    Shot: dogs snarling at each other

    All normal doggie things except my dogs do it funnier than anyone else's.
