Ik kan niet ademen.  –  Jerry Afriyie

When this posts I’ll be on the first leg of my trip to Ireland, so it seems appropriate to share one of my favorite Vangelis compositions, the haunting and beautiful “Irlande”.  The links above it were provided by Tim Cushing (“pigs”, “sirree” and “dogs”), Kevin Wilson (“serve”), Marijke Vonk (“brutalized”), Radley Balko (“bald”), and Nun Ya (“guess”).

I could fucking kill you.  –  unidentified Illinois cop

This week’s video is a kind of private message for the ladies who love me, but the rest of you can enjoy the music.  And if you don’t like The Bangles, I don’t want to hear about it.  The links above the video were contributed by Dave Krueger (“cute” and “street”), Rick Horowitz (“truth”), Tim Cushing (“volunteer”), Popehat (“pen”), and Skye (“burning”).

People die in these circumstances.  –  Darci Tierney

I saw this video pop up a few days ago; someone decided to compile all of the silly window cameo jokes from the old Batman TV series, and it seemed an apropos feature given Adam West’s recent demise.  The links above it were provided by Tim Cushing (“patience” and “bicycle”), Jillian Keenan (“happens”), Radley Balko  (“partisanism”), Cathy Reisenwitz (“whatsoever”), Kevin Wilson (“game”) , and  Lenore Skenazy (“lucky”).

I can’t breathe.  –  John Hernandez

The big news this week is, of course, the death of Adam West, Batman in the campy 1966 TV show.  I’ve featured a video of the theme song so you can play it while reading the obit.  The links above the video were provided by Popehat  (“faking” & “execution”), Radley Balko (“welcome” & “dummies”), Walter Olson  (“PETA”), and Jesse Walker (“collide”).

I could see planes circling in mid-air.  They grew in number and hummed, darted and dipped low.  I could hear something like hail falling upon the top of my office building.  –  Buck Colbert Franklin
