A fine look at how the art of satire was sullied by an ignoramus who denies his ignorant. Typical. “Satirist” John Curtas claims that language should not be taken so seriously, but isn’t that ironic when satirists thrive and live on language?

This type of hit-and-run is not satire. It’s called bigotry.

Anyway, I just came across this awesome video from San Cisco. They did a cover of the new hit song “Get Lucky” by Daft Punk.

Song starts at 1:15.

I’ve been a loyal fan of Daft Punk since high school during that electronic phase we’ve all went through (though very few of us admit that we liked it). But I don’t know… I can’t seem to find it in me to like Get Lucky.
