blue... blue... blue...

yes, it's been renamed... for the time being at least. I'll see if I like it and want to keep it.

meanwhile, just deal with it :)

Heard a radio station playing Eminem's Slim Shady earlier today.

Normally I wouldn't pay much attention to it, sometimes I just leave the radio on for background noise while I do work or do other stuff.

But this time was different. You see, the radio station censored a whole bunch of words from the song, up to the point where it was getting annoying cause there'd be so many lapses in the song (here they just cut out the censored bits, rather than add a *beep* to it).

I can understand taking out the expletives, but even less "harmful" words like "idiot" were cut out. Like I said, it got to the point of being very irritating. I mean, if you're going to cut out half the song, what really is the point of actually playing it on air? It's not like any of the listeners doesn't know what are the words you've cut out anyway. If it's offensive up to the point where you have to cut of like half the song, just don't bother playing it.

Lovin' the oldies but goodies

Was just looking through for music for the students recently, and I was reminded of my admiration for Gene Kelly's work. He's not the greatest singer, but he's just an absolutely amazing dancer, the best I've ever seen. Here's an amazing sample of his work, one of the best choreographed scenes in film ever.
