Moose Music

How White Does This Make Me?

As usual, I have the iPod on shuffle while working, and Springsteen's "Mrs. McGrath" from his We Shall Overcome: The Seeger Sessions album comes over the speakers. How white does it make me if the music gives me the urge to blast the song as loud as my co-workers will let me?

Upon further reflection, given that the song is an Irish ballad, it's only my genetic heritage asserting itself.

Snuggies!

I just need to state how much I love the television commercial for Snuggies -- especially the parts where they show a family of four all wearing the same color Snuggie like some demented post-Heaven's Gate cult or deranged gaggle of Druid priests. Either way, I don't care how warm or practical they may be, I just can't imagine anyone I know buying one and admitting to it.
