Glee Ripped off Jonathan Coulton’s “Baby Got Back”

This tweet by singer/songwriter/codewriter pretty much speaks for itself.

 

Here are both versions. It’s pretty astonishing how much Fox ripped of his arrangement. Let’s hope they do something to correct this, otherwise it’s some pretty bad egg on the face of the shiny Glee franchise.

Glee’s version:

Jonathan Coulton’s verion:

The Scariest Musical Instrument Ever

I’m all for encouraging proficiency in a musical instrument, but if my son grows up and wants to play the whatever-the-hell-this-thing-is, I’m buying him a drumset.

Crazy PATH Train Escalator Malfunction

Apparently this morning one of the PATH train escalators in New Jersey started going in reverse, and fast. The video below is pretty freaky. Hope everyone was OK.

Of all my years taking escalators almost every day in and around NYC, I’ve never heard of a malfunction like this. Just another thing for paranoid New Yorkers to be more paranoid about.

Ear Vacuum Infomercial Video

This infomercial has everything you love about infomercials. Definitely worth watching if you haven’t already seen it on TV.

But fight the urge to pull out your credit card, because apparently the WaxVac is a scam. Their MO seems to be to confuse people into buying more items and related services, then making it hard to get a refund. Shame on you, WaxVac.

Related: Here’s an offensive parody video. Even though I don’t condone material that’s homophobic, misogynistic, and offensive to the mentally challenged, the voices and the swearing will make you laugh.

Windproof Umbrella Video

Even though this is a promotional video, it’s an amazing promotional video.

Sometimes the best advertisements are the ones that simply show the product being used. It’s true with many Apple ads, and it’s true here.

The umbrella featured above is the Senz Umbrella by Totes.

Overall some pretty vanilla stuff. But the weatherman at 6:51 literally had me in tears.

A Taste Odyssey

Shot and edited this with my trusty new Canon G11 and iMovie this morning (before heading to work, appropriately).

Is it wrong that I feel this way when gazing upon my burgeoning spirits collection? Perhaps. But big ups to Paul at what I’m convinced is the best wine and spirits store in the country for the suggestions on what to buy, and a personal plug to Carly, Greg, and the editorial whippersnappers at The Spirit for the cocktail inspiration.

Say cheers!

Hot Stripping Action

Slightly more entertaining than watching paint dry….
