Welcome to this shiny new blog. It’s time to get things going. What’s the lamest and fasted way to chalk up an easy DING! for a blog post? Yep, jam on a YouTube video!
In this case, though, the video I wanted to share has embedding disabled, so I can only provide this sad, solitary, lonely link:
This has got to be one of the coolest songs and coolest videos of all time. So let’s start this blog off right with a lively tune and an entertaining video. It humorously features some of the most famous moments from viral video history.
Oops. I forgot. You probably just clicked that link and aren’t here anymore. Lame. Oh well. I’ll just go on talking to myself.
The song rails against conformity, which is always a theme that resonates with me. I have absolutely no idea what eating candy with pork and beans means, though. The songwriter came up with the song apparently as a mini-protest against Geffen executives who angered him by demanding a more commercial record from Weezer. (This is the same group that did the Happy Days video for the song Buddy Holly that came on the original Windows 95 installation CD-ROM.)
I don’t plan to take the cheap way out and post YouTube videos too often, but I like this song and I thought it would be a nice way to cheat a blog post right out of the gate. In the future I’ll be attempting to blog on a semi-regular basis on a wide variety of topics of interest.
