Can’t say whether I agree or not with this video’s statement that Celine Dion is fucking amazing, but I must say that her stock has risen in my book. The author of the video has more of the argumentÂ here, but I still can’t wrap my head around how someone who didn’t like Celine Dion in the first place would study and disect a two-disc dvd from her in order to make this video. Â Though I am glad he did, its pretty funny.Â
Due to my procrastination, I discovered tonight that I have to take a math placement test by tomorrow. As appalled as I am, the folks at community college might have a point because I haven’t taken a real math class since junior year of high school, 7 years ago. I came home from work with genuine intentions of studying, but first I needed to round up a calculator. I asked everyone and searched the house, and really this is all that my family could come up with: Raphael, a fake cell phone, crayons, a watch, or Mickey — quite the selection and not a real one in the bunch. I think it’s safe to say that the love for novelty items has spiraled out of control here when they have replaced even the most basic household tools and have taken over as standards in our home. I hope you all enjoy a glimpse of the craziness. Tomorrow I will be sporting Raphael, as he is the only one with a square root button.
PS Doesn’t it seem stupid that they would even make a Raphael calculator when clearly out of all the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Donatello loved technology and machines the most? Amateurs.
Yeah, that pretty much tells it like it is. In fact, I find the title funnier than the website — anyway, enjoy from Tom.
Always looking for something different to listen to while at work, I have been listening to a lot of the NPR on Itunes. Neil pointed me to it because he subscribes Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me and This American Life with his Ipod. I know its public radio, but I was still surprised that it is free online.
Anyways, I was listening to one of the shows called All Songs Considered because they had an interview with Mark Ronson, a man who seems to have his hand in everything that I have been listening to right now. He has produced Lily Allen, Amy Winehouse. I also just found out that his label, Allido Records, has chicago rapper Rhymefest on it.
Its a decent interview, but I enjoyed was the music that they played. Highlights include his current cd with a cover of the Kaiser Chief’s “Oh My God” and cover of the Zuton’s “Valerie.” Ronson did a great remix of Bob Dylan’s “Most Likely You Go Your Way (And I’ll Go Mine).” He also talked about a rapper from Washington DC named WALE that has a pretty catchy song called “W.A.L.E.D.A.N.C.E.” using the Justice’s “D.A.N.C.E.” as a sample.
