March 23 Edition…

"Hello You Tasty Morsel," by F Kim Hodgson via Flickr

Back from Seattle and ready to weather out the last two months of my undergraduate career!  Now, what have you kiddos been up to on the Internets?

1. Sen. Chuck Schumer says “I do” to gay weddings.

Sure, in the journalism world, he’s often laughed at.  But right now, Chucky Boy is my hero!

It’s time. Equality is something that has always been a hallmark of America, and no group should be deprived of it. New York, which has always been at the forefront on issues of equality, is appropriately poised to take a lead on this issue.

2. NYU gets Hill-Dawg for Commencement!

Speaking of awesome NY senators, Schumer’s former counterpart, Hillary Rodham Clinton is speaking at my Commencement in May! She’ll be joined by playwright John Patrick Shanley and White House journalist (/ “The Daily Show” regular) Helen Thomas.

3. Graham gabs with Yoko.

My good friend Graham from Future Shipwreck just interviewed Mrs. John Lennon herself, Yoko Ono for The Advocate. I only hope to be that awesome when I’m 76!

4. Emiliana Torrini hits YouTube with a li’l “droon-diggah-diggah-doondoon”


Some peppy music for your Monday afternoon enjoyment.  I had “Me And Armini” on repeat for the whole Seattle trip.  Here’s what’ll happen when you listen to Emiliana: You’ll bounce along to her perky beats, feel a little embarassed, then realize “Oh what the hell” and just bounce even higher.

You’re welcome.

  1. Thanks for the shout out! 😉 I love Emiliana Torrini, and that video’s adorable. Also, awesome line-up for your commencement speech! Maybe they’ll do an encore where they’ll all come on stage and do a medley, a la the recent U2 meets Coldplay meets The Killers performance that blew the minds of white people everywhere.

    Have you ever seen Shanley’s Joe Vs. The Volcano? It’s a very silly, fun Tom Hanks movie from the early 90s.
