"Wow" Moments

Yep, I had 'em. Three of 'em.

First, House threw me a bone... a little Hugh Laurie insiders-only joke. Did you catch it when she said, "You'd better come up with a cunning plan..."? If anyone remembers Hugh Laurie's characters from the Black Adder, you'll remember the "cunning plan" line. Thanks, House.

Second, can you BELIEVE Nip/Tuck is taking on Scientology? Oh MAN is the shit gonna hit the Tech.

Finally, I ran to Best Buy earlier today to pick up Timberlake's new CD for CadiBug. Lo and behold, John Mayer's Continuum was $9.99, so Mama got her John on. I expected to love it, but I didn't expect this:

by John Mayer

Is there anyone who ever remembers
changing their mind from the paint on a sign?
Is there anyone who really recalls
ever breaking rank at all
for something someone yelled real loud one time?
Oh, everyone believes
in how they think it oughta be
Oh, everyone believes
and they're not going easily

Belief is a beautiful armor
and makes for the heaviest sword
Like punching underwater
you never can hit who you're trying for
Some need the exhibition
and some have to know they tried
It's the chemical weapon
for the war that's raging on inside
Oh, everyone believes
From emptiness to everything
Oh, everyone believes
and no one's going quietly

We're never gonna win the world
We're never gonna stop the war
We're never gonna beat this
if belief is what we're fighting for

Is there anyone who can remember
ever surrender with their life on the line?

What puts a hundred thousand children in the sand?
Belief can, belief can
What puts a folded flag inside his mother's hand?
belief can, belief can.

Man, am I glad I left him on the list.

This is Funky, and that is all.
