What to Do? (Part II)

4 November, 2009 at 11:07 am (Books, Survey!)

So it’s Wednesday in New York City (and everywhere else in the world. Except maybe Australia. It might already be Thursday there). ANYWAY. Options, options for what to do tonight…

1. Trivia Night with Jason et. al. I heart trivia night, but it’s SO far uptown, and I always spend more than I should on unhealthy-but-delicious foods (lobster mac & cheese, YUM) and beer there.

2. Watching the World Series Game Six. I really don’t care about baseball, and I think it’s boring as hell to watch on TV. But it’d be fun to hang out with Matt, and it’ll be pretty crazy to watch the Yankees win out in the city. Would be fun to be in the mix of that, assuming the fans don’t start tipping over cars and stuff. They don’t do that, do they?

3. John Hodgman book reading/signing. This has been a week for book signings at B&N in Union Square! Monday was Augusten Burroughs (I ended up skipping that because I’d been to his once before, and I wanted to dog-sit instead.), yesterday was Plouffe (which was great, more on that another time), and tonight John Hodgman will be reading from his book More Information Than You Require (John Hodgman is a regular contributor to The Daily Show, and he’s also the PC in those “I’m a Mac, I’m a PC” commercials)

4. Go Home and Do Nothing

So I’m torn. Let’s open it up to a survey…

Nicole Scherzinger reworks “Jai Ho”

12 March, 2009 at 12:55 pm (Music, Survey!)

Okay, so I’ve already said how much I love the song “Jai Ho” from “Slumdog Millionaire”. I posted a YouTube video with the song a few weeks ago; they performed it on the Oscars. I’m pretty sure most people are familiar with it by now.

Well, Ms. Scherzinger, of the Pussycat Dolls, has redone the song. In English. She did it with AR Rahman (the man who originally made it), so it’s an “approved” version or whatever…but I just don’t like it as much. It’s not awful; just nowhere near as good as the original. You can listen to it here

A man, or not a man

14 November, 2008 at 1:17 pm (Music, SuperGay, Survey!)

A certain Robert C. tells me that the video for Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” features a man in drag. I’m not so convinced…I think it’s just a mannish-woman. He offers this site as proof. So what do you think? (and regardless, this video is still pretty damn hot)

NOTE:This video is protected or something, and won’t embed, but you can (and should!) watch it here

Obama is funny!

17 October, 2008 at 11:55 am (2008 Election, Barack Obama, Funny Stuff, Politics, Survey!)

Yesterday, Obama and McCain roasted themselves and each other at the Alfred E. Smith Foundation Dinner. And I have to say, regardless of how smart Obama is and how well he’ll lead this country, the man is funny. Yes, I know he didn’t write the speach – but his delivery was fantastic. (And whoever DID write the speach deserves kudos; that’s some good stuff).

To be fair, I’ll also put up McCain’s. He had a couple of funny lines…but it’s really no contest.

And because WordPress will now let me put up a survey, and I want to try it…we’ll do it here!
