Po-Po-Po-Poker Face

Signing
The YouTubes are going to be the death of me!

I’m about a month late to this but here’s a really cool remake of Lady Gaga’s Poker Face as done by Molly Lewis.


Moly Lewis poses that there is a fine line between an ordinary 80s person and Janice from The Muppets and that Lady Gaga rides that line. Which…hee! Also? I want a stylophone now. TheMan did some internets sleuthing and found that ThinkGeek has them for $15 or $20 or something crazy cheap like that but they were all sold out. Most likely everyone linking to this video was all “OMG! Stylophone!! Must have!!” and then they bought one. Meanwhile a month later ThinkGeek has none in stock and I discover how cool stylophones sound. Oh well, it’s close enough to Christmas that I really shouldn’t be buying stuff anyhow.

BTW, if Pokerface doesn’t get earwormed for anyone listening to it then they are probably deaf. Which brings me to the last of my YouTubes exploration. While going through a bunch of Molly Lewis’ videos, then some Lady Gaga videos (it was an extremely late night of YouTubes surfing. I recommend the Mr. T song from Molly Lewis BTW) I saw a listing for “Poker Face ASL” and I said, “Buh?” But I clicked the link anyway because I have a fascination with ASL. Then I found a whole bunch of ASL videos and the night got even longer.


Anyhow, this was the coolest of the ASL videos so I linked it in for y’all.

I think I’m going to work on my signing for a December “Better myself in some way” goal. Or something. Eventually I am planning on taking a class in ASL so I can learn the structure of the language but meanwhile I can build up some vocab and work on my finger spelling. Oh my goodness is my finger spelling slow. I also keep forgetting which is T and which is R and that’s the sort of thing that really needs to be sorted out. Anyway, enjoy the vids.

    Wow! I love the way that ASL chick keeps a poker face each time she signs “P-O-K-E-R face”
