Wierd Al Yankovic Gets My Generation

Weird Al just gets things is such a deep and thoughtful manner. His latest single fits life as I know it in so many ways. There are so many people who deserve to get sent a link to this, but who would fail to appreciate it fully.

While some might think his humor is low, I think that this song proves not only his comic genius, but also his strength as a performer. Heck, I even find the video an impressive piece of work. Nicely done, Al!

You Lost On Jeopardy, Baby.

While I cannot say that I was a witness to the process, it seems that IBM’s WATSON bested a pair of Jeopardy champions. Besides being a great showing of technology it’s nice to see some really smart people take a whipping. That always makes us mere mortals feel better about ourselves. Temper it though folks, for they doubtless got paid handsomely for the appearance.

On the other hand, they surely were thinking something that Alexander Graham Bell once thought, “Watson, you bastard!”

Apologies to Weird All Yankovic for the title of this post.
