Wow. Man, sometimes insomnia is pretty funny.

We (meaning Me) here at TWWOT salute you, random Chinese farmer!
This video was found on Neatorama, which as mentioned several times previously, is many times more rad that TWWOT will ever be...

Allrighty, now that you have been taken in by the beauty of the uke, here is Jake shredding on a Uke:
With all that being said, here is a little slice of horrible. I found this on Neatorama, and the contributor there seemed to think this was awesome. He or she couldn't be more wrong, and as a result he or she should not be allowed to listen to music for a month. Hit play and start weeping, music fan...:
Edit to add: I felt so bad for subjecting all of you to this trainwreck that I thought I would post the real deal, just so you can hear what a good song this really is. If you haven't ripped your ears off of your head, sooth yourself with one of the best bands ever...

I decided to post it simply because I have been thinking about my own mortality lately, and the video honestly freaks me out a little bit. I mean, in the span of about 4 seconds, this guy went from being a healthy, successful driver doing something he has done thousands of times to being dead. There was no premonition, no slow descent into the light, no chance to rage against the dying of the light, nothing. Obviously he knew that driving a Funny Car wasn't the safest occupation in the world, but still it just freaks me out when I consider that Scott Kalitta's life went from 100% to 0% in less time than it took me to write this sentence.

This is a picture of newborn Red Pandas.
I don't have anything particularly witty to say about either picture, other than that these two pictures were #1 and #2 on the AP photosite, and the opposing nature of the pictures struck me as odd. It's probably just me that finds this interesting, but there it is.

The implications of this friendship are far-reaching and disturbing. I like cats, but everyone knows that cats are far to wily for their own good. Cats are also one of the few animals that seem to kill just for the pure joy of spilling blood. Also, cats are stealthy. What happens when you combine the natural cunning, the thirst for blood and the stealth with a bear's natural strength and invincibility? You get a cat-bear, and that my friends spells doom for mankind, at least until Skynet goes up, and maybe even then.
On the surface, it may seem incongruous that the cats and the bears would unite, and I have to admit that even I have long predicted a monkey/bear alliance, which could still happen. If you think about it for a little bit, it makes sense. Cats sleep 22 hours a day. Bears sleep for months at a time. Cats like fish. Bears can fish. Cats like to interrupt humans while reading newspapers. Bears eat humans. The symbiotic relationship that exists between a cat and a bear is evident only when considered at length, but once discovered, eerily strong.
In conclusion, I advise you to beware. If you notice your cat hanging out with bears, put an end to that immediately. If the bear won't go away or begins to try and sneak in your house at night to frolic with your cat, I advise laying down a protective field of anti-bear mines. Finally, if your cat simply won't stop it's longing for the bear, you're going to need to move. Where, I don't know, but just make sure it is a bear-free area, because the cycle must be broken before it's too late.

Anyway, it sucks that ol' Bo is gone. He was a showman, he had his own unique style and he wrote good songs. The old bluesmen are all dropping off the face of the earth, and there isn't a whole lot of them left. I advise listening to some BB King and Buddy Guy now, while they are still alive.
Enjoy the video, which was made at some point in the 70's and just shows Bo playing guitar and hollering. Godspeed, Bo.
