The Chinese Lady Gaga Video Explained →
In the pantheon of viral videos, the clip of Chinese retirees, on a Hollywood-Squares-like stage-set covering a Lady Gaga song earns its distinction. A week or two after it took flight, it is still going, so it might be worth explaining what is actually going on. This clip comes from Hunan TV’s Mid-Autumn Festival celebration, an annual television extravaganza roughly along the lines of the...
Wait Wait ...Don't Tell Me gets its own TV show! →
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! nprfreshair: analogplanets: I maybe find this entirely too exciting. “Wait Wait” creator Doug Berman says it would be a typical show, “except NPR has to add a budget line for pants.” very awesome! [pics from Wait Wait in LA back in 2008]

Chris Heath: Completely different subject. I'm interested in this Donna Summer song that you quoted in the debates and you quoted in your book.
[In an August debate, in his closing statement, Cain quoted a favorite lyric sung by Donna Summer in "The Power of One," though he described her only as a "poet."—CH]
Herman Cain: I heard the song in a collage that NBC put together following the 2000 Olympics. And as it turns out, the song comes from the Pokémon movie, and I didn't know that.
Chris Heath: It's the theme of the movie.
Herman Cain: That's what I've been told. And so I fell in love with this song, fell in love with how she sang the song, and fell in love with the words. Committed it to memory. Now, why did I commit it to memory? Because one of the things that I did before I ran for president is I was a professional speaker. Not a motivational speaker—an inspirational speaker. Motivation comes from within. You have to be inspired. That's what I do. I inspire people, I inspire the public, I inspire my staff. I inspired the organizations I took over to want to succeed. I love the song: [almost singing] Life can be a challenge / Life can seem impossible / It's never easy, when there is so much on the line / But you can make a difference. [laughs]

A Wyoming high school football coach forces his players to fill out a “hurt feelings report” describing their feelings with homophobic and sexist language. He resigned, but this certainly is not good PR for middle America. I mean, I’m mostly offended by his misspelling of easily and the missing hyphen in woman like, but you know whatever.

Backstory: My friend M. lives with a girl I'll call X who once asked me, "don't you hate it when white people try to tell you how to feel?" Here's the latest from her.

Why Americans Should Care About Global Health →
The Global Health Technologies Coalition (a work client) produced a video series with important people on why they should care about Global Health. My favorite is Whoopi Goldberg (I’m such a philistine…) because she says AIDS doesn’t care if you’re an “itty, bitty baby.” Check it out!
