In famer, you know so hagadablealeekysay, a-lickity boom boom down

It's time for our usual Tuesday look around the world to see what's happening!

  1. Microsoft is putting out another Windows product that will completely revolutionize computing as we know it. At least that's what the computer geeks say.
  2. The Hubble telescope is broken again. I hope those astronauts can get off it in time.
  3. The Miss America pageant was held and if anyone bothered to watch it, it was to see the amazing amount of "talent" that these young ladies have.
  4. Yes, I know that there are no astronauts on the Hubble telescope.

In other words, nothing new is going on.

This week's theme:

This week, after watching your FDA daily recommendation of I Heart the 90s, (here and here), let us consider a shining example of the musical video given to us by the year that was 1993.

Today, we pay tribute to the greatest white Canadian rapper one-hit wonder of 1993: Snow. His delightfully titled disc 12 Inches of Snow was released, powered by the completely incomprehensible single "Informer"

Our Where's Waldo checklist:
  1. Nah, couldn't be.
  2. Did anyone else think that this song was about a farmer?
  3. According to Wikipedia, Snow is related to Barenaked Ladies' Steven Page (According to this, they are second cousins)
  4. Oh yeah, here are the actual lyrics
  5. Nah, couldn't be.
  6. If I'm not mistaken, this song is actually about both booty shaking and police brutality at the same time.
  7. Nah, couldn't be.

On to the news:

A psychologist tells people how to get lucky
(Anyone who knows me personally is snickering)

Bright, shiny objects:

And now, video from our wedding
(Think of it as line-dancing...)

Today's random "next blog":

Today's strange anniversary:

January 30, 1973 -- KISS plays their 1st show (Coventry Club in Queens NY).

Fun fact of the day:

Very small clouds that look like they have been broken off of bigger clouds are called scuds.

And finally:

Stop the presses!

FIF Bonus material brought to you today by friend Steve.

The following item is from the Jacksonville Florida Times-Union. It's apparently "freezing" in Jacksonville.

Then, I clicked on the five-day forecast for Jacksonville. The horror... it's going to be 70 degrees on Thursday.
