Well, whadaya know?
OK, I have two videos to share with you tonight - I might as well get them in right away before I forget...
I saw this on Today's Big Thing, and I almost didn't watch it. I'm glad I did. It's a cover of an Aerosmith song by a cool homebrew, indy band called Pomplamoose, which appears to be a man and woman who record all the music themselves, and mix it all up, including editing mash-up videos like this one. Reminds me of Logan, for some reason!
They have some other great songs on their YouTube channel (which I subscribed to of course!), including this Christmas song which is very, very cool.
Before I get to the second video I wanted to post, let me put a funneh picture up here.
I know, I know. Not quite "funny", but definitely "funneh"....
OK, here's the second video I wanted to share tonight. It's a video of the World's Largest Flash Mob, which happened last Fall in Chicago, on the Oprah show of all things. She arranged a block party concert in Chicago and invited the Black Eyed Peas to perform a new remix of one of their popular songs. She didn't know it, but the remix was given to a choreographer, who worked out a dance to it, taught it to 600 dancers, who then taught it in groups to the crowd of 20,000 people that showed up for the live event. They ended up doing a crazy flash-mob dance to it that freaked Oprah out. Everyone was in on it but her. Her reaction is priceless, and the dance itself is amazing.
I know, some of y'all probably already saw this between last fall and now, but I just saw it today, and it's too cool not to post.
Oh, a quick note on something from a couple posts ago... Rebecca said they still use the phrase "wicked cool" in the northeast, and I found photographic evidence of it, in the form of this east coast roadside warning...
I finally beat the main quest of Borderlands today, with my level 36 Sniper. I have to admit, the big boss fight at the end was not only a real let-down, but it was pretty much straight-up lame. Uh oh, I better post a mini review...
Borderlands: A Review
The vehicles were fun to drive, but the ability to run over people and critters made some quests too easy. No point in getting out of your car to fight a giant critter when you can just drive over it and complete the quest!
I had a pet attack bird called "Deathwing" that I could send out to attack nearby baddies as well, which was fun. I wish there would have been a storage trunk somewhere to keep cool weapons. You were limited to what you could carry in your inventory.
Summary: 3/5 A decent game, but I enjoyed Fallout 3 infinitely better.
Still reading Name of the Wind. I saw THIS POST on the Author's blog today, and he gives a nice update on the status of the next book in the series A Wise Man's Fear. If you liked the first book, go there and read the post, eh (Krista!)! Even if it's just to look at the picture of his baby sitting next to a print-out of the latest manuscript...
I know I had other things to squawk about tonight, but my brain is empty at this moment. I should have made a list. Oh, well. If I remember it, I'll post it tomorrow. I'm closing in on my 400th post! Are you proud of me?
PS Happy Birthday Shannon!
