music and a digression (or two)

"Beyonce's 'Single Ladies' by (Mary Ann, Ginger & Mrs Howell)"

I am really not obsessed with this song, I swear. It's just that I keep coming across fun videos for it.

Also, I never really watched Gilligan's Island much, but how is it that these women all have the same pair of shoes? Aren't they stranded on an island? I'll stop here and suspend my disbelief because I have many other questions regarding that same clip.


And, speaking of Gilligan's Island...

"Emily Dickinson's Isle - Death by Emily Dickinson to the tune of Gilligan's Isle"

Funny enough: I first learned about youtube in the class of the professor who pointed out to me this fun little tidbit (singing the Dickinson poems to this tune).


And, speaking of Dickinson...

One of my favorite quotations is from her writing: "Tell all the truth but tell it slant." This quotation I first read on a Bazooka bubble gum wrapper.
