I have about half a dozen posts that I can’t seem to finish. They start strong then all manage to make a sharp right turn into craptown before the end. It’s enormously frustrating.
In the meantime, I thought I’d share this video from Schoolhouse Rocks. The show was actually before my time, but I watched tapes of it as a kid and still have a bunch of the songs on my ipod. I’ve even tried to share it (read, sit them down and make them watch while I sing along at top volume) with all the kids in my life – so far with no success. I know the whole fat guy with thin, attractive-in-a-socially-acceptable-way woman is kind of overdone, but it’s never bothered me in this video. Probably because the fat guy in question isn’t a dumb jackass whom we’re supposed to love anyway.
