Beyonce - Love On Top (video)

Hm. Beyonce singing and dancing in a bathing suit and Captain’s hat. Must  be Monday. Beyonce singing and dancing in a vintage shiny suit and wing tips. Beyonce doing…New Edition moves? Wait. What IS this again?

Thanks, Steve. See ya around.

The origin of Batman Jones!
(via CBR)

Forget the idea of naming the kid Batman. That’s actually pretty  normal. But Batman sticking around to build the kid a crib? Huh? Batman  being in action long enough for a baby born after Batman’s career  started to now be about Robin’s age? Huh? Companies sending presents to a  kid with Batman’s name? Huh?
Things get better when Batman Jones shows up on a case Batman and  Robin are working and totally figures out where the missing statue is!!

OPOLOPO - Kobayashi Maru

'Voltage Controlled Feelings' is the sonic testimony of more than two decades of serious electro, funk and boogie studies from Swedish synth commander Opolopo!

Blending epic Blade Runner soundscapes and Krautrock sequencer lines into cruising west coast beats and beyond, he proves that science fiction and funk are not only compatible, but have always belonged together. ‘Voltage Controlled Feelings’ is a newly discovered planet orbiting a distant star, that also pays homage to the synthesizers, drum machines and the artists who influenced Opolopo’s music. Echoes of Prince, Herbie Hancock, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream and Isao Tomita can be heard throughout the album.

Fellow electronauts include L.A. vocalist Erik Rico, known for his work with Tupac Shakur and David LaChapelle, UK acid jazz hit singer Farah, Toronto-based jazz vocalist Sacha Williamson and Stockholm-based oral transmorpher of sounds and words Amalia. Don’t miss the Opolopo starcruiser!

As financial woes send consumer confidence into a nosedive, many Americans are one paycheck or unexpected bill away from financial disaster.

Survey data released yesterday showed that consumer confidence plummeted in August to the lowest levels since May 1980, and there may be good reason for people to feel glum. Another recent survey by the National Foundation for Credit Counseling showed that nearly two-thirds of respondents don’t have enough money saved to cover an emergency expense of $1,000 or more.

This Is All Kind Of Wrong of the Day: Kymberly Wimberly was all set to become her Arkansas school’s first black valedictorian since 1989.
But,  at the last minute, McGehee High School decided Kymberly was to  share her spotlight with a white “co-valedictorian” who had a lower GPA.
“When I found out I was valedictorian, I was ecstatic,”  Kymberly, who has long dreamt of being at the top of her class, told ABC  News. She says the student named co-valedictorian agreed with her that  “if the tables were turned, there wouldn’t be a co-valedictorian.”
Kymberly’s  mom, Molly Bratton, who is the school’s “certified media specialist,” says she  overheard school personnel expressing concern that naming Kymberly  valedictorian would cause a “big mess.” Furthermore, when Bratton tried  to protest the school’s move at a school board meeting, she was told she  couldn’t speak because she had “filled out the wrong form” and would  have to wait until after graduation to appeal.
Kymberly and  Bratton have filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the school,  seeking punitive damages and a revision of the school records naming  Kymberly the sole valedictorian.

…and then sometimes I think it IS better that we don’t go into real space yet. As a species, we are clearly not ready.
