Video by Cord...

Cord started making this video a year ago when he was home from school, sick. Well, he has been home sick the last two days and decided to finish it today. When he started it, we were turtlesitting his cousin Morgan's turtle. We put the two turtles into one tank so they could hang out and stuff, but they barely spoke to each other. Awkward. So, the idea for this video came from Bart (our turtle) being all perturbed to discover that "she" had a new unwanted roommate in her tank, just like Glinda in the musical Wicked.

Oh yeah, Bart has since died. We had her for over a year, and she never grew so we knew something was wrong with her. We googled it. "Why is our turtle not growing?" Answer: "She's sick or something." The best pet we ever had you gize. Barely had to feed her.

Catchy, to say the least. I think Cord has it. A certain Je ne c'est qua. Alls I know is that he gets it from you.
P.S. My new favorite thing to watch is those tiny turtle legs dancing, bending up into their shells.
RIP Bart, you will be missed by all...'cept Hazel. I'll question her about her whereabouts on the fateful day.

True talent. I'm convinced I skipped those genes.

Bart may have died from shaken baby syndrome.

I agree with Katie. I liked it much more when their cute little legs were dancing and we saw the turtle moving their legs to keep up. Maybe Bart was anorexic due to the pressure of keeping up with theater life. Did he/she/it get any other parts after Wicked or was that it cuz he/she/it doesn't look all that famaliar. Maybe like a c list celebrity?

I believe Bart died from humiliation.
Or... it may have something to do with that "We hardly ever had to feed him" philosophy.

Why did they ditch the wigs & lipstick for the dance scene? And he def died of dain bramage. That dance scene did a number on him.

The Ninja turtles chorus line was my fave by far.

Sheer brilliance.

Wow, Cord, what talent. Loved the whole show. Too bad about Bart's demise. I guess that means there won't be a sequel :(

Bart died like 11 months after this video was shot you gize. Sara's right, she might have been anorexic cuz we rarely saw her eat.

Laughing myself to tears here. Your son made a video that I personally believe beats out all of your other awesome videos.
And on a serious note, that crazy dance scene was definitely what killed him. Brain damage= loss of appetite= months later death.

I agree with Landee about the ninja turtles...nice touch. Cord has some mad skills as well, obviously he gets them from his momma!

Love it!

Here's a question for you: How can you tell if a turtle is a boy or girl? Love that "Bart" was the name chosen for your girl turtle.

Oh yeah, and give Cord a ::High Five:: for me.

Jana said...

That was extremely awesome. Your son is as hilarious as you. I love it!

PS It was a tender moment meeting you- to say the least. You exceeded my high expectations, and your sister peeps are awesome too.

Cool video Cord!! The memory of Bart can live forever through your artistic creation.

Wicked is one of my favorite shows...you should all see it if you get a chance.
