Today's Mighty Oak

Now I went to public school, tell me again, why did Japan start the Civil War with us?

All kinds of things to pass on this time.  We’ll start with a new funeral for Edgar Allen Poe.  Kind of cool that he’ll get a proper funeral.  Still kind of creepy.  Point of reference: my bamboo plant is named Edgar and my desk plant is named Poe (Allen was Cat’s bamboo who is dead), and Poe is the inspiration for my favorite beer,  New Holland’s Poet.

Mika has a new video, this one for “Blame it on the Girls.”  However, the second single from his new CD is going to be Rain.  Unless this was already released as a single and I missed it, kind of strange to do a video for it, but still a lot of fun.  I’ve desribed this song as half hip-hop, half flaminco.  Check it out:

Here’s a cool graph charting job losses.  Check out Pittsburgh, we were doing great until we literally got swallowed up by other cities.

An artist takes over the screens at a New York Best Buy.  Pretty cool, I kind of wish this would happen more often.

I really liked this sketch from SNL last night:

And finally today, here is the original painting.  You can hover your mouse over to get more information about all the people and objects in the piece.  And here is the updated version, including a cameo by Emperor Palpetine!

That’s it for now, have a great one!
