Mike and I got free tickets to the My Morning Jacket show in Nashville tonight. So we have this to look forward to: Sorry. Awesome just happens sometimes. I will recap in all my limited musical expertise after the show.
So this is the Providence long promised, the soaring aria of awesome, the tequila sunrise of antiquity: The 1976 yearbook spread where student organizations produced members who fit their idea of “beauty.” (It was 1976). Tragically, they didn’t include the student organization, but it really isn’t T.S. Eliot at work here. Crack open a cold [...]
So, I’ve been on this miracle trek through the 1960s and 1970s of Vanderbilt yearbooks (for a project on the housing perils at Vanderbilt). At right, you can see the most fantastic thing ever, which comes to us via page 284 of the Vanderbilt Commodore 1968. Clearly, Paul Pilgrim here is providing a few tips [...]
The three-piece Republican domination Tuesday was expected, of course, but not like this.

This past fall, Kate Snowden won the Pope Award for reporting on the way PETA misconstrued the activities of the lab: “The biggest oversight of the Orbis article rests in its failure to actually mention the conclusion [...]

She’s just so pretty and witty and wry. I think she’s up to something, too! [Hat tip to AllahPundit, a kindred spirit in affection for the Old Girl]
There are two reasons people tolerate the Golden Globes and those reasons are that the awards don’t really count and everybody gets drunk by the end of the night. Captain Ed may not have liked last night’s acceptance speeches, but I did, starting first and foremost with Tracy Morgan’s glorious 30 Rock acceptance speech: And [...]
Dave Barry rolls out his Year in Review for 2008 in the Washington Post. Always good for a laugh, Barry also has a libertarian streak running through his witty and sharp commentary on America. Alas, there seems to be little to no mention of exploding toilets in 2008. This isn’t change I can believe in. [...]
