Radio radio radio

Radio, by Felix the Housecat. Watching this video is like watching a movie in an incomprehensible foreign language... it tells a story, somehow.

Pacific state of mind

From 808 State.

I'm guessing this is the original video, since FSOL also had those old fashioned 'cool' computer graphics.

The bestest and the brightestestererers

John McCain once wrote this:
It was a shameful thing to ask men to suffer and die, to persevere through god-awful afflictions and heartache, to endure the dehumanizing experiences that are unavoidable in combat, for a cause that the country wouldn’t support over time and that our leaders so wrongly believed could be achieved at a smaller cost than our enemy was prepared to make us pay. No other national endeavor requires as much unshakable resolve as war. If the nation and the government lack that resolve, it is criminal to expect men in the field to carry it alone.
(h/t Brad DeLong)

My Moon My Man

Another great song by Feist.

2. Has this question vexed philosophers for centuries?

3. Create an impression of original thought by impassioned scribbling (your answer may be ungrammatical, illegible, or both).
