Scala Girls Choir covers the Divinyls "I Touch Myself" on Odeo - Andrew: Subject: obscene song in innocent classical music directory Message: (gasp) SSAA choir girls singing "i touch myself"
At first I thought it was a Christian P&W song actually, but he was more right than he thought. Wikipedia: ""I Touch Myself" is a pop-rock song written by Christina Amphlett, Tom Kelly, Billy Steinberg and Mark McEntee... The song is about masturbation... In 2005, the Belgium all girls choir 'Scala' did a classical cover version." This is very bizarre. Andrew when I told him: "it's nto some deep philosophical thing about gettting in touch with your inner self?"

YouTube - How to Create a Sexy Pop Star - "All you do is show up. With your long hair and your breasts and make sure your cleavage is down to here, at least. Well going down to here now cos 2006 is what naked wants this (?)... With a plugin, like for example this one's called 'AutoTune'. It'll basically look at her vocal and you can tell what key the song is in and it'll go 'Oh, it should be at this pitch'... I'm gonna fix it in real time"

Untying the Gordian Knot - "Now, when modern topologists study knots, they assume the knots are constructed out of perfectly flexible, perfectly stretchable, infinitely thin string. Under those assumptions, if the Gordian knot were really an unkotted loop, then it would have been possible to untie it, i.e., to manipulate it so it was in the form of a simple loop that does not cross itself. Thus, the only thing that could make it absolutely necessary to resort to a sword to untie it would be that the physical thickness of the actual rope prevented the necessary manipulations being carried out. In principle, this could have been done. The rope could have been thoroughly wetted prior to tying, then dried rapidly in the sun after tying to make it shrink. This is the explanation proposed recently by physicist Piotr Pieranski of the Poznan University of Technology in Poland and the biologist Andrzej Stasiak of the University of Lausanne in Switzerland."

Is Homophobia Associated With Homosexual Arousal? - "The authors investigated the role of homosexual arousal in exclusively heterosexual men who admitted negative affect toward homosexual individuals. Participants consisted of a group of homophobic men (n = 35) and a group of nonhomophobic men (n = 29); they were assigned to groups
on the basis of their scores on the Index of Homophobia (W. W. Hudson & W. A. Ricketts, 1980). The men were exposed to sexually explicit erotic stimuli consisting of heterosexual, male homosexual, and lesbian videotapes, and changes in penile circumference were monitored. They also completed an Aggression Questionnaire (A. H. Buss & M. Perry, 1992 ). Both groups exhibited increases in penile circumference to the heterosexual and female homosexual videos. Only the homophobic men showed an increase in penile erection to male homosexual stimuli. The groups did not differ in
aggression. Homophobia is apparently associated with homosexual arousal that the homophobic individual is either unaware of or denies."
Homophobes are gay, ooh.

YouTube - Rolling Stones - Start Me Up - This is really hideous. Did people ever watch this without laughing?

YouTube - Indian Thriller - "Thriller - The Indian Version"
Even before watching the MJ version I found this funny. Maybe MJ got his inspiration for mass dance sequences from Bollywood.

YouTube - Disney Girl (Madtv) - "Funny skit of the disney girl"

In Praise of Illiteracy - "I envy the illiterate his memory, his capacity for concentration, his cunning, his inventiveness, his tenacity, his sensitive ear. Please don’t imagine that I am speaking not about romantic phantoms but about people I have met. I am far from idealizing them. I also see their narrow horizons, their illusions, their obstinacy, their quaintness... The victory of the second-order illiterate can only radicalize literature. When it has lost its value as a status symbol, as a social code, as an educational program, then literature will be noticed only by those who can’t do without it."

His sister in danger, 4-year-old plays hero - "The robber was holding a gun to 5-year-old Mary Long's head when a 3-foot-tall Mighty Morphin Power Ranger leapt into the room. "Get away from my family," 4-year-old Stevie Long shouted, punctuating his screams with swipes of his plastic sword and hearty "yah, yahs.""

In Praise of Idleness By Bertrand Russell - "The idea that the poor should have leisure has always been shocking to the rich. In England, in the early nineteenth century, fifteen hours was the ordinary day's work for a man; children sometimes did as much, and very commonly did twelve hours a day. When meddlesome busybodies suggested that perhaps these hours were rather long, they were told that work kept adults from drink and children from mischief. When I was a child, shortly after urban working men had acquired the vote, certain public holidays were established by law, to the great indignation of the upper classes. I remember hearing an old Duchess say: 'What do the poor want with holidays? They ought to work.' People nowadays are less frank, but the sentiment persists, and is the source of much of our economic confusion."
