Swing Low, Sweet Chariot

January 24, 2010

I have been playing the organ on and off for the last couple years. Maybe that's what makes this performance all the more impressive. The organ is an incredibly cool musical instrument, especially if you have mad organ skills like Richard Elliot of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir.

Watch with amazement.

Jon Stewart Smacks Olbermann

January 22, 2010

Just around the time of the last presidential election, I posted an entry from Saturday Night Live with Ben Affleck mocking Keith Olbermann's self-important, pseudo-intellectual, psycho-babble.

Well, after Olbermann called Senator-elect Scott Brown from Massachusetts about every name you could possibly imagine (with the suffix -ist usually incorporated), Jon Stewart decided to take issue. And though I don't like the wallow in the name-calling myself, Stewart aptly shows why I have, for quite sometime now, considered Olbermann a cotton-headed ninnymuggins.

I am the WORST!

January 21, 2010

I have completed one year of grad school, and have quite enjoyed the experience so far. Apparently there are those in the world who don't think too highly of grad students. Here are two of my favorite video clips in regards to the matter; one from 30 Rock and one from The Simpsons. They make me laugh every time.
