That fine line between genius and OH GOD, THE HORROR!

If you don't read the political blogs, (and really, why should you?) you probably missed the war of annoying music videos. Yes, Youtube is a weapon now. The Editors have the best summary of what's happened thus far, though if you read the comments you will see that Sadly, No! has continued escalating annoyance. On the poll, Leonard Nimoy's "Ballad of Bilbo Baggins" is winning, which doesn't seem right to me. Yes, the dancing is frightening, but the whole video is fascinating as a slice of the incredibly silly 60s.

The Star Wars Holiday Special, on the other hand... nobody wants to see that side of the 70s again.

Oh...... oh..... As someone who was around in those far off times, I wish to make it clear to any youger people, these looked as stupid then, as they do now.

Now Scott, isn't there a law in Indiana... ?
