Pretty sad. And then we wonder why the perception outside the U.S. is that we are selfish and greedy.
Today I woke up with Nickelback’s “Animals” running through my head. Great song!
Funny skit. Thanks Kim!
Pretty cool. First Twitter, now this.
Poor Kitty! This makes me sad. Is this your teenager? I hope not! Luckily the kitty was saved.
Ok… I’m gonna admit it… I’m reading the Twilight books. Yes, yes… I know… the target audience is teenage girls (at least I think it is), but I’m really liking the books. I’m on book 2, New Moon, right now (almost done). The movie comes out next week. I like them for several reasons. 1) The woman who wrote them graduated from BYU (as did I). 2) Although it’s a story about a vampire, it’s not about vampires… it’s more of a Romeo and Juliet story… about a forbidden love. Check them out.
This perhaps is one of the coolest things I’ve ever seen on YouTube… thanks Kim!
UPDATE: From TheDude:
it turns out that this kid did not actually write or record the song; he just lipsynched it. The kid wasn’t trying to fool anyone. He actually gives credit to the band on the actual YouTube page where he posted the video, but it’s just kind of a bummer to find out that there wasn’t some uber-genius child prodigy behind it. Anyway, the song is by an a cappella group called Moosebutter. Check out the update on this page: http://www.toplessrobot.com/2008/11/the_greatest_john_williams_tribute_of_all_time.php
Bummer, that takes all the fun out of it.
