The Leningrad Cowboys with special guests the Red Army Choir

You see some pretty odd things on the internet, but this has to be near the top of the list.

Here's the post where I found this (by way of my podcast co-host Dave), with a bit of explanation.

...consider the Finnish rock band called The Leningrad Cowboys. A little while ago, they held a concert in Russia, in which - to the screaming applause of Russkie teen-agers - they got the Red Army Choir to join them on stage for a performance of "Sweet Home Alabama." In English. You couldn't make this up.

Recreational Drugs!

Earlier today I scored a box of Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies.

It may not be long before you find me curled up in the corner in a chocolate mint coma.

Early Bird

I saw my first Robin of the spring out on the front lawn this afternoon. I managed to catch him (catching something else) with my pocket camera.

BTW, this is my first ever YouTube posting. They can't all be lonelygirl15.

Obama's speech on race

Pretty interesting speech today. Has me thinking.

I found the video to it on the site. But it's not easily linkable, so you'll have to go looking for it. (How foolish of you msnbc!)

(BTW, it's a shame that such an important speech had such poor video, and particularly audio, coverage. I wonder who was doing it?)

Mind War

Depending how accurate this piece is, the Bush Administration may have at least some good ideas.

The International Herald Tribune:

A primary focus has become cyberspace, which is the global haven of terrorist networks. To counter efforts by terrorists to plot attacks, raise money and recruit new members on the Internet, the government has mounted a secret campaign to plant bogus e-mail messages and Web site postings, with the intent to sow confusion, dissent and distrust among militant organizations, officials confirm.

I've always thought that one way to deter these things is not to vilify the suicide bombers, but show sympathy for them. They are pitiful individuals who have been duped into sacrificing their eternal souls to advance the deceitful goals of others. So sad.

Mmmmmm! Pie!

It's not really a holiday that's been on my radar, but my Twitter friends are pointing out that today is Pi Day.

Of course!
