A Little Weird News #4

A Little Weird News for March 29, 2008:

YouTube Edition

1. I'm not a huge basketball fan, but this pass may be about the best play I've ever seen. I had to watch it several times before I could believe that it actually happened. If you don't have time to watch the whole thing, just fast-forward to :40 seconds in to see the super-slow-mo.

2. There is nothing quite so infectious as a baby laugh - especially in person - but how can you watch four of them laughing at the same time without wrinkling your cheeks at the same time. Check out the one on the left just chilling.

3. Last week at the end of a training class the subject of Peter and the Wolf came up and I couldn't for the life of me remember who composed it. Everyone said Tchaikovsky, but I knew that wasn't correct. It turns out it is Sergei Prokofiev. After watching this performance of it, however, you may wonder if it wasn't Busta Rhymes.

4. If you aren't one of the 4 million-plus peeps who have already watched Mariah Carey's song get slaughtered by a contestant on an American Idol ripoff from Bulgaria, you should definitely go give it a look. I feel bad laughing at her expense, but it always feels good to laugh.

5. While we are talking about American Idol, one of the contestants this year who I thought had a lot of potential, but who has not lived up to it at all is Michael Johns (formerly Michael Lee). Imagine my surprise (go ahead, I dare you) when I came across this video from his former band that is actually pretty good. Certainly better than anything he has done on AI.
