What do you think about last night's SocratiDunk? - 09/24/09

Did anyone see last night's SocratiDunk? It was really good, with Lou Holtz first squaring off with Christie Hefner, and clearly beating her with a series of tough questions, each one building on the last. Then, for the second part of that round, Jonah Goldberg squared off - and was trounced by - Meghan McCain. You know what that means! Lionel Chetwynd's first throw hit the mark but wasn't strong...

It's Labor Day and I want you to celebrate my labors - 09/07/09

... buy that compilation of their music videos or at least click the graphic and then buy something else. In fact, if there are any stray lefties around, the song Maddox Table - illustrated on the DVD with a historical promotional film for Jamestown, NY and concerning laborers at that plant - will strike an especial chord even for those who don't know someone who owns one of their tables: to your...

Now, Keith Olbermann is going after Guillaume! - 09/06/09

The entire "blogosphere" was rocked earlier today when MSNBC host Keith Olbermann blogged for help digging up dirt on Guillaume! (concernedprogressivesusa.info/okeitho/090709/--4823~I-need-dirt-on-guillaume-832~sdfsd.html) I want to take this moment to make clear that Guillaume is a treasured member of Team 24Ahead, no matter how much mud "Olby" wants to sling. Further, the implication that...

Notice: Plan C has been activated - 08/31/09

Los Angeles is burning. While normally we at 24Ahead would stay around in order to help out with the recovery, most importantly of all we need to prioritize and make sure that you continue to receive the information you need. Getting you the information you need is our top priority above all else, and we must ever remain cognizant of that. In times of crisis, it's necessary to understand ones'...

Let's figure out the logistics of this - 08/07/09

Could you carry one of those around with you, like in a customized external frame backpack? I got one of those at a yardsale and considered creating a bike carrier out of it. Would something like that work, perhaps with a carrier designed to transfer as much weight as possible over the legs? Because, otherwise, turning would be difficult due to the centrifugal force leading to unsteadiness. Not...

Receiving tapes makes me feel important - 08/04/09

Northern California new age-ish folk singer Allette Brooks recently saw my video "If Polar Bears Were Humans" (link) and sent me a copy of her latest CD suggesting I might want to use her anti-global warming track "Lost the Shore" on that or a future video. I believe she knows my video was a bit of a satire and she was chiding me a bit. But, that's OK: I need chiding. Also, people sending me...

Hey! That's my desktop background! - 07/22/09

How'd they get that picture? Does anyone else know about that secret location with the tall standing stones? As for what she's singing, my Russki's a little rusty, but I think it has something to do with coming from the land of the ice and the snow; vodka; wolves; sleighrides; vodka; glorifying the conquerers of the eastern reaches; the rise and fall of Communism; Yuri Andropov; and vodka. P.S....

For the record, Guillaume denies being a Communist - 06/27/09

Last week, Guillaume's Pick was a video of a no-talent who chipmunkizes his voice. This week, Guillaume has taken the opposite tack of choosing a playlist featuring someone who's actually talented with a great voice. However, this time his choice is even more offensive and, while he denies it, I strongly suspect that Guillaume is a Communist. Because, his playlist is entitled, "Songs of Peace,...

There's room on the National Mall... - 05/31/09

OK, maybe that's going too far. However: Motherland from the same event is here. Kind and Generous is here. Other versions of Wonder are here and here.

Some nifty ones from British TV - 04/03/09

I made a playlist just for you: The first video is from a 1990 appearance for the Hope Chest compilation that came out that year (buy it here) featuring remixes of songs recorded in 1982-83:

The glockenspiel finally makes it listenable - 03/04/09

Maybe one day someone will make a listenable version of Luka. The original is here.

Does being wrong about minor matters really matter all that much? - 01/27/09

The first is from January 1, 2007 at the inauguration of Eliot Spitzer. Few could have predicted the scrapes he'd subsequently get into. Unfortunately, it's only 39 seconds, but the sound isn't that bad. The second is from June 2006, at the birthday celebration of Fr. Daniel Berrigan:

Unsigned 40+-targeting New Zealand-living former Russian Mezzo Soprano of The Week - 05/09/08

Congratulations! Team Lonewacko has selected this week's Unsigned 40+-targeting New Zealand-living former Russian Mezzo Soprano of The Week, and it's none other than Yulia Townsend! While she could not be reached for comment she is most assuredly proud of her award:
