Choose Wisely, Grasshoppers’es

April 22nd, 2008 by Mike Nelson · 40 Comments

Below is a video from 1980 of the German supergroup Dschinghis Khan performing their hit song “Moskau.” The lyrics have [...]

And dude, I’m like, WHOA, seriously bro, what is that, man? I mean, totally. Dude!
SPOILER-TYPE-THING ahead!

For those of you who have seen the movie… can you offer us a viable theory as to what the smaller bug-spider-crab-facehugger guys were?
We are confused and disoriented. And somewhat drunk. (It’s after 2 PM, after all.)

National High Five Day – 4/17

April 16th, 2008 by Conor Lastowka · 16 Comments

The rumors are true! The seventh annual National High Five Day is on Thursday! You may have seen National High Five Day, (which I co-founded back in 2002), mentioned on the Tony Danza Show last year, but if not, the basic idea is that on the Third Thursday in April, while going about [...]

YOU Make the Connection!

April 13th, 2008 by Mike Nelson · 28 Comments

I was searching for information about the great American composer/scholar/pedagogue Walter Piston (his book Harmony was the text for my 1st class in Music Theory. Fascinating, huh? No? Not at all? Hm, I see what you’re saying. I shan’t ever drop that trivia at a dinner party unless I want out of there.) when I [...]

A Warning…

April 9th, 2008 by Mike Nelson · 25 Comments
