A Little Friday Geo, plus COTW!

First, here’s George Hrab laying down the drum track on his song Death from the Skies:

Second, here’s your Comment o’ the Week!

Three winners this week, all of them very deserving of the grand prize: a distinct sense of superiority.

Mslongjr identifies an important plot hole in Inception:

Here’s where Inception fails for me, though. At no point did any of the dreamers find themselves flying naked over fields of corn being harvested by clowns and then suddenly wake up with wood. (Painfully hard wood.)

Tina questions the legitimacy of a syndrome that causes confusion when one looks at a great work of art:

In regards to the Stendhal Syndrome, it just sounds like general anxiety.

Oddly enough, the only time I have felt it while just looking at things was while walking into a family friend’s house in the Seattle suburbs. I was taking in all the tacky, kitschy, burned orange, puke green, shag carpet, sparkly ceiling popcorn, and glued on veneer left over from the 70′s my brain could handle.

So, either, our brains get a little overwhelmed (aka anxious) or 70′s interior decor is actually akin to great works of art.

mikerattlesnake has some advice for someone in need of a comeback to a post-modernist:

@jogleby: “your postulations are useless and you may as well have majored in goatee-growing” makes a decent rebuttal.

Congrats to our winners and happy Friday everyone!

  1. I also love science and drummers. Two professions in which accuracy is everything and a math background helps…. except that in drumming you get to bang on things all the time.

    And damn, George knows his funk drumming.
