Dr. Opera is a new web series by Lyric Opera of Chicago and I am SO PUMPED ABOUT IT!
sometimes I get this song stuck in my head and all I want in the world is to shout in someone’s face “Boy that was one big ugly bear!”
Matt Smith and Karen Gillan perform the theme song to Doctor Who. And they don’t need lyrics or a backing track to be totally adorable and amazing.

Legitimate Rape Ditty of the Day: It seems that Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin has us all confused about when rape is legitimate rape.
Thankfully, we have this little Schoolhouse Rock-esque tune to help us sort things out.
Take a moment to remember and reflect on the Mountain Goats cover of “Boxcar.”
Movie Trailer of the Day: Josh Radnor, whose character is the weakest link — and the central storyline — on How I Met Your Mother, is poised to take the indie world by storm; writes, directs, and stars in the new romantic comedy, Liberal Arts, an audience favorite at Sundance.
Also starring Elizabeth Olsen (the talented younger sis of Mary-Kate and Ashley), the film follows 35-year-old Jesse (Radnor), who returns to his hometown and falls head-over-heels for 19-year-old undergrad Zibby (Olsen).
In theaters this fall.

Cabaret - Natasha Richardson
Natasha Richardson will always be my ideal Sally Bowles, and this video exemplifies that decision perfectly. This is not a happy song— Sally is here deciding simultaneously to have an abortion and remain in Nazi Germany for the remainder of the war. It is a complicated decision, and you can read it all over her face. But more than that, you can hear it in her voice. Her performance is half for her fictional club audience and half for herself, convincing herself that she needs to be unrestrained in order to live her life to the fullest. She’s angry, and hurt, and ugly, and perfect. This is what it means to be an actress in a musical instead of a performer.
To Be Anything At All: Thoughts from Places, Chicago and LeakyCon 2012
In which John discusses the surprises and pleasures of being anything at all while attending the Harry Potter conference LeakyCon and walking around downtown Chicago. Also, I read from some humiliating high school fiction.
How many of John Green’s Thoughts From Places videos have failed to give me chills? I’d venture a guess of zero.
From The Archives: Internet PSA: The fifth-graders of 1995 may have predicted the future of the Internet, but even then, it was always about the cats.
Kid: shouldn’t everybody be on the internet?
Me: …probably not.
Movies Got Back of the Day: It might have taken almost 300 different films, but you can now hear the entirety of Sir Mix-A-Lot’s Baby Got Back, as recited by movie characters.
Not Safe For Work – because it’s a song about butts.
