I saw two clips from Saturday Night Live hosted by Neil Patrick Harris (Jan. 10, 2009). Can anyone who saw the show tell me if it was funny? Thanks.

Here's some gourmet stop motion called Western Spaghetti. Eat it up!

Storytelling with Ira Glass
This may be really inspiring to some of you. It's about the art and difficulty of telling stories (esp. on radio and TV), and doing it from the heart. In four parts, via YouTube, here.

Ira Glass is the popular host of "This American Life" on NPR and Showtime on TV. He says, "In the purest way, it's about luck."

Yo, check it out
Esquire's 75 skills every man should master.

Some good suggestions. Some skills that have fallen by the wayside. Most (if not all) good for guys and gals.

Six degrees of starvin' nations
In 788 words, Paul Krugman sums up the global policy trap surrounding food. It's not funny or youtube, but it is insightful. He goes from the food crisis to emerging economies to oil prices to bad weather to biofuel to political mis-management.

Here's the beginning of Krugman's NY Times Op-ed 7Apr2008, "Grains Gone Wild":

Social Networking and Business
Janeane Garofalo is having (with Dana Gould, Paul Provenza, and maybe the ACLU) an exclusive event for a certain kind of person. It's Friday, free, and part of Vancouver's Comedyfest. All it takes is lining up (first come, first served) with a print-out of your MYSPACE profile.

Is this the sort of thing that Dave Pollard is talking about in his "how to save the world" blog item 10? Your previous link-love got me thinking about it, and I later found myself on the comedy show's page. How can web-based social networking and the business mindset be used and harmonized? Or is this simply cross-promotional corporate advertising on the web?

Soleil Moon Frye = Lunar Eclipse
Tonight there will be a total lunar eclipse. Hope for clear skies!

The moon will be completely "hidden" around 10pm EST / 7pm PST. Partial shadows of the Earth will be noticeable about ninety minutes on either side of the peak time. Check it out outside your window.

Super Duper
I do not want to wager about next week's Super Tuesday outcome (anything is possible), but I can predict the Superbowl results.

The Giants will win.
And I will eat one pig-in-a-blanket* for each point scored.

*Otherwise known as franks-in-the-jackets.

Dancing Prisoners. Orange jumpsuits. Thriller. Radio Gaga. YouTube. Remember?
Here's some backstory on the Cebu Detention and Rehabilitation Center in the Philippines. Apparently, dancing is good for you. And fun.

Independent thinkers
"The Independent International Commission on Decommissioning (IICD) was established to oversee the decommissioning of paramilitary weapons in Ireland, as part of the peace process."

They could have used a commission to oversee the naming of said group.

A human giant is coming at you
MTV is in search of some cred and they are trying their luck with the new sketch comedy show The Human Giant. I like 'em. Funny guyz Paul "Babyface" Scheer, Rob "OliveGarden" Huebel, Aziz "Wonderboy" Ansari and director Jason "Smartguy" Woliner have made a name for themselves on the 'net but Thursday, April 5th, 10:30EST is their American TV debut.

The first free episode is on iTunes. There are lots of short films, leaks and clips around. They tend toward the weird and wacky (lots of wigs and oddballs) and have an background in improv, friendship, and being funny.
