This video had me in tears yesterday. David Weinberger explains it all perfectly here.

Can’t wait to get a new boss at noon today!

Holiday Show with the Pops
Holiday Show with the Pops

Watching Keith Lockhart wander around in the audience, shaking hands and hugging old ladies is amusing. However, even more amusing is seeing him try to do a can can dance. Too bad I didn’t have my camera ready for that.

Good show, either way…however, I think next year I want to do something differently since we’ve been to the Pops the last two years and have been about 5 times in our last 10 years together.

Tomorrow, we host the Patriot’s game and hopefully Miami will lose so that we will continue on our season. If not, then we will be able to talk a lot more during the Superbowl game. Oddly enough, it sounds like we’ll have about 5 extra people coming over tomorrow so I guess we’ll actually have to do the cooking and whatnot.

I’m Changing my Name to Chrysler!

 I'm Changing My Name to Chrysler
by Tom Paxton

Oh the price of gold is rising out of sight
And the dollar is in sorry shape tonight
What the dollar used to get us
Now won't buy a head of lettuce
No the economic forecast isn't right
But amidst the clouds I spot a shining ray

I can even glimpse a new and better way
And I've demised a plan of action
Worked it down to the last fraction
And I'm going into action here today

CHORUS:
I am changing my name to Chrysler
I am going down to Washington D.C.
I will tell some power broker
What they did for Iacocca
Will be perfectly acceptable to me
I am changing my name to Chrysler
I am headed for that great receiving line
So when they hand a million grand out
I'll be standing with my hand out
Yes sire I'll get mine

When my creditors are screaming for their dough
I'll be proud to tell them all where they can all go
They won't have to scream and holler
They'll be paid to the last dollar
Where the endless streams of money seem to flow
I'll be glad to tell them what they can do
It's a matter of a simple form or two
It's not just renumeration it's a liberal education
Ain't you kind of glad that I'm in debt to you

CHORUS

Since the first amphibians crawled out of the slime
We've been struggling in an unrelenting climb
We were hardly up and walking before money started talking
And it's sad that failure is an awful crime
Well it's been that way for a millenium or two
But now it seems that there's a different point of view
If you're a corporate titanic and your failure is gigantic
Down to congress there's a safety net for you

CHORUS
