HIMYM: Robin Sparkles

Okay, so I recently decided that you all are going to need to embrace my occasional weirdness. The weirdness might be my fixation on certain TV shows - like "How I Met Your Mother" - or might be something that demonstrates my strange sense of humor, like Shasta Anne and my love for Narwhals. Just go with it.

So, anyway, "HIMYM" is a great show. It is more than likely ending this season. Which sucks but I won't think about that part. One of my favorite facts is that Robin (who has a lot of random things in common with me) was once a Canadian pop-star called Robin Sparkles (no I have no past life as a pop sensation). Of course, because HIMYM is amazing, they decided over the course of the show to have Robin do two music videos as her "Robin Sparkles" character.

Let's Go to the Mall is the first song that came out, which explains the backstory of Robin Sparkles and was on the season two episode Slap Bet:


Then there was "Sandcastles in the Sand."

    1. I know, right? New Girl has a different sense of humor, likewise with Big Bang Theory... so I have no idea what will replace this show for me!

    1. Yay! I am glad to know you are a fellow HIMYM fan. I think the Sandcastles song is my favorite due to all of the bad bad ridiculousness of the video.

    1. haha the space TV show is SO WEIRD. Esp with Nicole Scherzinger (weird last name spelling butchered). So hilarious. And creepy as we both know that there were many awkward sex-ish tied scenes in it! haha

      PS: a narwhals blog?! OMG. Does it still exist on the internetz?
