It will be fun for this kid when he hits that age where you actually start understanding all of the lyrics you misinterpreted as a child (I'm pretty sure most of us can relate to this feeling. Mass appeal!) I had a lot of these epiphanies when in my teens I heard the '80s pop songs from my childhood. But, unlike this kid, I didn't have a video documenting the lyrics I THOUGHT were correct. For that reason, he will have extra fun in 12 years or so.

Can we talk about the production value of the video? It looked pretty good. I mean, it wasn't perfect, but it was impressive. To be honest--and I could be totally wrong here--the change in quality between "The Baddest" and this video makes me think that someone in The Industry (maybe just a low-level someone, but SOMEONE nonetheless) took an interest in making Kreme a YouTube sensation. I liked the video, and I like that Krispy K is being creative and having fun, but I feel like video one might have a corporate fingerprint on it. But that just means that maybe KK isn't lying anymore about making money, which is great for him. Keep following your dreams, kid, and maybe someday you'll end up like your hero Tupac!

I like the part where he's holding my favorite brand of vinegar and pretending it's alcohol.

"...attempting to land on a fairly modest pile of the foam cubes they use at, like, fancy skatepark camps." HAHAHAHA! As a kid, I always wanted to go to a fancy skatepark camp. But my family is just middle class, and FANCY skatepark camps are reserved for upper-middle class kids whose parents are trying to stay hip. So my skatepark camp was just my little brother, a neighborhood kid, and I all taking turns on one ramp someone's dad made.

I can't find a link to it, but there's a Lincoln commercial with John Slattery (it always plays during Mad Men) and, toward the end of the commercial, the song playing sounds an awful lot like "Someone Great."

McKay Hatch goes to BYU-Idaho, which is even more uptight than BYU-Provo. Students there are not allowed to wear shorts or sandals. You would think only Liz Lemon would willingly go to a school that outlaws sandals.

One of my facebook friends said the gal lied about her weight, and that's what caused the problem. I don't know if that's true. Does anyone know? Even if she did lie about her weight, this is still terrifying, and it makes me weird about that one time I did go bungee jumping.

I remember seeing this internet show about food carts, and the ex-drummer was running a cart in Portland.

I love a good Brigham Young University joke--absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE. Nevertheless, I'd like to point out--as someone who grew up 10 minutes from BYU--that I only had one friend growing up that read the Left Behind books. Ironically, that friend was the first of my friends to admit he's atheist...right before he started going to church to get cheaper tuition at BYU. Oh, the tangled webs, right?

I'm Mormon, and this has been lighting up my facebook feed recently, which is funny because he just says, "There's still a fire burning there" or something, and people seem to be clinging to it as a beacon of legitimacy for Mormonism. I get the idea that a lot of Mormons think that he's still very orthodox based on this video, but I'd argue that all we can rightly surmise from his statement he still has positive feelings about the church. Sure, he says he's a Mormon at the end, but so do I and I'm not totally orthodox--I'm very lazy about church attendance for example, which is frowned upon. My point is that the Mormon community is just gushing about this clip, but they don't realize that he might be in the same spot as people like me (observing a lot of Mormon practices, but still not 100% orthodox) and not the shining example of strict Mormonism they want him to be. I'm not trying to knock Brandon, because I think this video is inspiring and took guts to make, but I find it interesting how many Mormon people are just gushing over it. If you believe The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is God's true church, then why should it matter if the singer of The Killers is vaguely associated with it. Relax, fellow Mormons. It's great that Brandon is associated with the church, but it might be unwise to make him--or anybody--an unofficial celebrity spokesperson.

Speaking of corporate stuff, there are a few new ads on the site. Congratulations on that! Looks like Gabe might be able to buy that dream house after all, courtesy of Dream House.
