WhoMadeWho - "Every Minute Alone" - A New Song for the Day

I was just recently made aware of this band from Denmark and am somewhat smitten by the video.  It was released April 25th on Kompakt.  Follow the link to their Myspace page for more info and music: WhoMadeWho.

Billy's Balloon - Short Animated Film by Don Hertzfeldt

A good friend sent this animated short my way and it is worth a viewing. I have a real soft spot for this sort of primal, two-dimensional animation and the concept is quite funny though almost uncomfortably harsh at times - but i like that aspect as well.  Oh yeah, I apologize for the pop up ad - damn embedding from you-tube.  It can be closed out easily.

President Obama as Comedian - 2011 White House Correspondents' Dinner - Video of Interest

He's even good at delivering punch lines - impressive - and then turns around to deliver tonight's address with, quite obviously, very little sleep but the utmost grace.  Impressive indeed - and may we appreciate the rare moment of national unity and communal alignment that will inevitably grow from today's news, only to fade too quickly.
