So, enough whining and moaning about my flu-y state of affairs. It's been a while since I've done an In the BIN entry. I thought I'd shake it up a bit, though, and do a video version.
Saw this on YouTube and decided to post it. I'm sure you've all seen these numbers in one form or another, but they bear recalling. And, as I'm, well, you know... sick... it also reminds me that despite all the inequities surrounding healthcare in this country, the point is, I do have healthcare.
I admit, I'm a total Pink Martini junkie. I'm seeing them at the Kennedy Center on the 29th with my sister. Here's their latest hit, "Hey Eugene!"
I've been listening to the Harry Potter collection on CD lately and then watching the movies. This video combines J.K. Rowlings' characters with Jane Austen's beloved Miss Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy of Price & Prejudice in this spoof. (There was also a lovely spoof on Harry Potter and Brokeback Mountain called Harry Potter and the Brokeback Goblet, but I opted for this one in honor of PBS's six weeks of Jane Austen.)
Finally, I haven't followed a presidential race with as much enthusiasm and interest as I am this one. And no one in the race excites or inspires me more than Barack Obama. A brilliant musician, will.i.am, created this video. Again, I'm sure you've seen it already, but it's worth watching again. Yes, we can.
