Chia Obama

Sometimes I feel like maybe the Chia people are a little too crazy.

This is perfect for the upcoming holiday weekend:

Chia Obama!

Elbow

I actually have NO idea how I've never seen this before.

There doesn't seem to be any way to embed it, so brief description, then a link.

In 2004 (I think) one of my favorite bands - Elbow - did a BBC Radio 1 session and recorded a quirky version of Destiny Child's "Independent Woman." They occasionally break it out in concert for a couple seconds (if I remember correctly). Apparently, Joel Veitch of rathergood.com took their version and made it into a video featuring some Northern Kitties playing instruments and smoking cigarettes. First - this is a great cover. Secondly - the animation fits almost perfectly. It's funny but played on a loop so don't expect it to stop - ever...

Without further ado...

I Miss the 90s and Early '00s

I will be the first to admit that I loved NSYNC and 98 Degrees and hated the Backstreet Boys. However, they all look hilarious here in 45 Ridiculous Pictures of Boy Bands. On top of those three there are pictures of Hanson, O-Town, LFO, NKOTB, etc. What a great reminder of what things used to be like

Ctrl+Alt+Del

At Tommy's request I am posting a link to Ctrl+Alt+Del, which seems to be his favorite webcomic. Specifically here is a link to a comic about video games, killing cats, and orphans. Funnier than it sounds, I promise.

Everything is Terrible

Face gymnastics! Keep you looking younger longer! We need to worry about this in our 20s!

". . . Basically live together anyway."

An interesting stimulus plan...


Nation's Girlfriends Unveil New Economic Plan: 'Let's Move In Together'

Unhappily Ever After

I love it when people question the whole fairy tale princess story. These are great shots of alternate endings to some favorite fairy tales. And warning, I guess it might be kind of sad?

Disturbia may be an understatement.

Every musical bone in my body is screaming in horror:



Really, lady?

I pity that poor child...

Eugene Mirman speaks to high school students

I thought we had it good at the Canisius College Graduation of '07 when Marv Levy (our beloved former Bills coach) spoke to us. However, I can now see that Lexington High School wins with Eugene Mirman. Mirman's always a funny guy, but this pretty much encapsulates all graduation speeches ever. Good job, Eugene.

Hot dogs for 50 cents?

In honor of summer, a song about grilling. It's like Jack Johnson if he also liked reggae and autotune. Amusing and not terrible:

"G-R-I-L-L is how we like to chill..."



Thanks, Marta
