"...another reason I'm intrigued with the hanged of Salem, especially the women, is that a number of them aroused suspicion in the first place because they were financially independent, or sharp-tongued, or kept to themselves. In other words, they were killed off for the same sort of life I live right now but with longer skirts and fewer cable channels." Sarah Vowell, The partly cloudy patriot.


Show New Zealand some love!

I know I just blogged about these guys the other day - but I am even more in love with them now. Not only are they cute and funny - it is edumacational to watch them! For example, you will learn why they are called "business socks," you will learn how to rhyme with hypothesis (helpful for all you academic types!), you will learn that hip-hop was invented in New Zealand - in 2001 at a barbeque - with Steve, and that New Zealand travel posters do not require a 4th exclamation point (as in New Zealand!!!!) in order to entice tourists (to see that one, go to hbo.com), how to be really smooth when you don't remember someone, and why recycling may not be foreplay, but still is good before sex. You will also learn how they single-handedly ended racism in all of New Zealand! They also talk about the issues, but they keep it funky.

Business time is seriously the best - and it is better on repeated viewings. You may also inexplicably find yourself singing it later on. It's that good.

(note: different versions of the same song are different enough to warrant watching).

Thanks so much for posting these. I love the issues one. These guys get funnier the more you watch them.

I'm trying to watch the HBO show, but it takes so long to download. Stupid slow Australian broadband.
