Michael Jackson, mixing pills with alcohol, and Sarah Palin are all given a hot, dance-beat-driven update. Absolutely hysterical. Watch for Nancy Pelosi breaking it down at the beginning! Get it, girl, Kanye will be calling soon, I’m sure of it.

With her thin, reedy voice, and lackluster dance moves, Holmes simply did not do justice to this classic show-stopping stomper. Somewhere, Judy Garland is likely pissed.

The latest marriage of the news with catchy music, comedy, and Autotune technology.

This time around, the very funny Gregory Brothers give us Congress debating climate change, reaction to Michael Jackson’s death, and of course, more of the amazing Autotuned vocal stylings of Katie Couric. As always, it’s the catchy, catchy music that makes the comedy really work.

Despite the premise of HBO’s new show Hung being about a man’s overly-large sexual organ, it looks like the whole affair will be stolen, in true HBO fashion, by women: Anne Heche and the always-astounding Jane Adams look fantastic!

US Citizens Constitutional Rights continue to be trampled. Thanks, Obama (Not!)

I’ve a colleague who is getting married in Cairo. When she and her husband come to the States, their marriage will be recognized by the US federal government.


My right to marry my wife of 9 years is a Constitutional issue. It is not a state-by-state, individual-by-individual topic that anyone has a right to determine for people like me. This issue should never have been up for vote/open for public debate. It’s a disgrace that we’re still—STILL—discriminated against like this in this country.
