... per the request of ^kat^, we have switched to the new Blogger. I have yet to really investigate what the benefits of this might be, but I assume they are legion.

Donny Osmond rocks hardcore

The first take of Weird Al and Donny Osmond dancing together for the "White and Nerdy" video:

I, for one, am rather impressed with the level of Mr. Osmond's (presumably) improvisational dancing skills.

crossposted from my other blog for matt's benefit

It's official. Music class = the best law school class ever.

Why? Because my reading for tomorrow (portions of Rockonomics) contains an extended quote from (Semisonic drummer) Jake Slichter's masterpiece, So You Wanna Be a Rock & Roll Star.

Coincidentally, I read that book nearly two years ago, while visiting the law school for Admitted Students Weekend. It's a phenomenal piece of work about the music industry and you should all read it yourselves, if you haven't already.

And *I* should finish my reading for tomorrow. But seriously? I LOVE THIS CLASS. It's like getting class credit for doing the stuff I do normally.

I'm totally pulling one over on the administration. (Shhh, don't tell.)

pix from last night

A selection of photographs from last night's Bible trivia extravaganza. Sorry for the lame captions; trying to do this quickly and surreptitiously at work, so no time for cleverness...

I'd just like to note...

... that TV on DVD is simultaneously the best and worst thing ever. Damn you, Season 2 of Scrubs, for eating my entire Sunday! Why must you be so deliciously entertaining???

In other news, I have purchased a home version of Dance Dance Revolution on the Intarwebs... so when it arrives, you are all welcome to come over and try it out.

it's no Lazy Sunday...

...and Dick in a Box has better one-liners, but it's still worth watching:

The Harry Potter Rap

Did people already know...

... that actor/musician Jason Schartzman (of Rushmore and Phantom Planet fame) is the son of Talia Shire (Adrian from the Rocky movies)? And that Talia Shire is the sister of Francis Ford Coppola? Making Jason Schartzman the nephew of Francis Ford Coppola, as well as the cousin of Nic Cage and Sofia Coppola? I did not know that.

In other news, I wish I had some tidbit of trivia about one of the stars of Fame, so that I could refer to them as So-and-So, of Fame fame.

But I don't.

(In fact, looking at the movie's page on Wikipedia, I don't actually recognize the names of any of the actors. Seeing as the movie is in fact called Fame, I'd say that's what we call irony.)

I meant to post this...

...pre-NYE gathering, but Blogger was slow the night before I left, so here it is:
