Michelle Bachmann’s SotU Response

In which SNL just covered noted Crazy-maker Minnesota Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann’s Tea Party State Of The Union response (how’s that for a string of uninterrupted capitalized words?).

I know I’m behind the times here, but I had no idea what they were mocking. I listened to the SotU and the Republican Response, but I didn’t know that “Tea Party HD” was showing her. For reference, here’s the original, with less comedy and more let’s-not-give-people-health-insurance:

I have to say, I’m pretty impressed with the SNL impersonation.


Crazy Things Seem Normal… Normal Things Seem Crazy

In which the venerable Chuck Klosterman writes an article for Esquire in 2005 about Val Kilmer , and the surreality of the man I still think of as Chris Knight .

Nathan requested it, you get it.

I spend a lot of my time reading blog posts, magazine articles, books, and random detritus from the internet. I also manage, with my extra spare time, to wade through a fair number of movies, TV shows, internet videos, to say nothing of always seeking out new music.

Nathan wanted to a simple way for him to subscribe to the “Best Of” the media I’m consuming, so I’m going to filter on interestingness, edutainment, and taste, and post the results here.

Most of the things here come from the blogs I follow (see the blogroll to the right), so lots of these posts may be old news to you.

Since I’m doing this for my friends and family, I’m interested in what your favorite things of the week are. If you want me to host your list, let me know – I’d be happy to.
