I SAID: Case of the Mondays?

November 22, 2010

Maybe my co-writer will notice the subtle post title change, and write on passive-aggressiveness again.  And yes, I do forgive her given she has been extremely busy lately…what with a new job and house.  That being said, it takes all of 8-12 minutes to put one of these together.  Happy Turkey week.

This seems as good a clip to start as any…

Collegehumor take on Social Network, made by other directors. Awesome stuff.

Why post Nirvana playing Smells Like Teen Spirit for the first time? Why not.

If you can deal with subtitles…watch this flick.  Called “The Secret in Their Eyes,” it won Best Foreign Film at the Oscars last year; it’s amazing how good a movie can be with acting and no special effects.

Patriots get smoked. Daylight savings times ends. It’s freezing rain here. Yes, even though I have the day off I still have a case of the mondays…

This goalie is far faster than I am.

Here is a woman’s new art site. She is 90. Quite frankly I think that is awesome…Maybe she will hook me up with a piece for all this press.

Some cool pictures from yesterday’s NYC Marathon…congrats to Ian (which in addition to being his name, is also his nickname) for finishing his first marathon in under 4 hours.

Excerpt from tonight’s interview with Big W (former President George W. Bush).  Apparently, Kanye West’s harsh words for him was the worst part of his presidency.

Sound like the Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear went well with well over 200,000 people in attendance.  Jon Stewart’s speech at the end was pretty heartfelt and impressive.  If you missed it, here it is:

It’s November 1st.  That means it’s officially the first day of Movember.

“Movember challenges men to change their appearance and the face of men’s health by growing a moustache. The rules are simple, start Movember 1st  clean-shaven and then grow a moustache for the entire month.  The moustache becomes the ribbon for men’s health, the means by which awareness and funds are raised for cancers that affect men.  Much like the commitment to run or walk for charity, the men of Movember commit to growing a moustache for 30 days.”

I know I’ve been counting down the days and I can’t wait to see some photos of the participants!

There seem to be an awful lot of people worked up about this stuff.  Maybe it’s a vocal tiny majority, but I feel like more and more of these types of posts/pieces are being written.  Here are 10 words you need to stop misspelling.

TSA screening got a whole lot more personal and yet still falls short of actually protecting anyone.

After succesfully passing my comprehensive exam on Friday, which will allow me to graduate with my Master’s in 6 weeks, I went pretty big this Halloween weekend, so I kind of have of a case of the (hungover) Mondays…especially since I have an 8 page paper to write today.  So I’ll use these to distract me:

Please tell me there is a program that makes it easy to loop this 2 second video 300 times…how many minutes did you get through before stopping?

Even if you couldn’t see the Comedy Central special “Restore Sanity and/or Fear” hosted by Jon Stewart & Stephen Colbert, check out the liveblog here.

This is for sports fans, and at that only ones that enjoy making fun of horrific announcing.  Here is Chris Myers covering a 50 yard bomb that was almost a touchdown. He sounds as excited as a kid who gets egged and all his halloween candy taken from him on Halloween night from those local teen hoodlums. That never happened to me, and I dont have any lingering issues…promise.
