The last round of revisions is done, leftovers are cleared from the fridge, the last couple of sweaters and pairs of socks are being thrown into the suitcase, and I’m heading out the door to the airport (at potentially THE WORST time of the year–December 23 at 7pm, yikes). Homeward bound!
See you on the other side.
I promise there are real posts with writing in them coming up, but for now here is one of the greatest Dinosaur Comics of all time. (Click to see the original post, which you should do, because the alt text is hilarious.)
Hat tip to Adam Anklewicz for sharing it–I’m behind in my Dino Comics reading!
In a follow-up to this post, the best cover of “Single Ladies” ever (and only 0:11 in length):
Hat tip to Patricia for this extremely cute piece of Internet.
Sometimes you and your friends agree on everything. And then sometimes you tell people you think “Single Ladies” is awesome, and half of your friends are in emphatic agreement, and the other half think you’ve developed a mild mental handicap.
Last night at a birthday party most of us were in the “this song is awesome” camp, but I’ve since run across a great many folks who think it’s an abomination. You know what, though, it’s an awesome pop tune. Not only is the production pretty killer, but it’s an almost maddeningly simple arrangement – some handclap-style rhythms, some multi-tracked vocals, some hella catchy hooks. I am far from your usual Top 40 listener but hell, I’m not gonna apologize for this one.
I’m not even going to apologize for the fact that all this post is about is a song that was released three years ago. Nope. I ain’t sorry.
