Definitely a win. This is why YouTube never gets old.

It’s a New Day.

tragic kingdom

Yesterday, I heard one of my favorite songs growing up — “Everything You Want” by Vertical Horizon. It was refreshing to hear as it reminded me of a simpler time. Once in a while, I get those feelings. I’ll hear a familiar song, and suddenly, I’ll remember everything that happened during that time. I was in 5th or 6th grade when this song was released and it was during the peak of the 90s alternative phase. I’m sure many remember it well. No Doubt‘s Tragic Kingdom, Smashing Pumpkins, Smash Mouth, Counting Crows, R.E.M. etc. etc. If you don’t listen to that type of music now, you did back then. That’s just the way it was.

BTW, Will.I.Am is a genius. And if you want to see an obviously very low budget, yet way cool song/video, you can click here.

Ron Clark Academy.

A friend sent this video my way, and I really enjoyed it. So now you can, too. If 2008 had a theme song, this would be it.

Gosh Darn It.

The diehard SNL fans know him best as Stuart Smalley, a classic character I grew up watching everyday during Comedy Central’s 80’s reruns. Well, he just won the democratic Senate primary in Minnesota. I’m actually really surprised he’s come this far. When it comes to politics, he’s always had his fair share of critics and controversy. To think that he could actually be a state Senator is pretty cool.

As far as the VMA‘s go, I think it was pretty underwhelming. The venue was rather small and the deliberate attempts to revive Britney Spears’ career were obvious. During the post show, Perez Hilton pretty much slammed Russell Brand for poking fun at the Jonas Brothers’ expense. That’s a bit ironic, considering this dude makes a living off trashing other celebrities. What a douchebag.

On a happier note, we finally have internet at the new apartment, which is always a good thing.

The Funny.

British people are hilarious. Why is that? Anything that comes out of Russell Brand‘s mouth makes me laugh hysterically. It’s the reason I can’t wait to buy Forgetting Sarah Marshall on blu-ray later this month (Mila Kunis could also be a reason) and why I’m actually looking forward to watching the VMA’s tomorrow night.

I heard this topic of conversation on the radio on my way to school earlier last week. And it’s most definitely true. The British are naturally talented, comedically. Maybe it’s the accent or perhaps it’s some unknown quality that us normal folk just don’t have. Who am I kidding — it’s defeinitely the accent. Everyone loves the accent.

I thought the commercial was relevant. So here you go.
