You know what's weird?

The Pledge of Allegiance. WTF? If you went to school in the U.S., you had to stand up and say this every day, in middle school at least. It seems really weird to me now. Do other countries do this?

Indian comedian!

Found off Das Racist's myspace page. I know I said no more about them, but this is about Hari.

Maybe not such a big deal to you, but to me it's pretty great seeing people who look like me making music videos and doing comedy on Jimmy Kimmel. Our parents (1st generation) came over here, worked their asses off and sacrificed so their kids could become lawyers, doctors and engineers. My generation (2nd) will end up having kids (3rd) who go to art school and become layabout* rappers/comedians.

Ain't life grand?

p.s. my daughter is only allowed to be a rapper/comedian in her spare time, i.e. when she's not on call at the hospital where she's a DOCTOR

* update 7/11/09: Hari emailed me with a small correction: he's not a layabout. I stand corrected!
