As an update to my earlier mention of Johns Hopkins making it to the lacrosse final, I just wanted to make sure everyone was definitively informed that they are now the champions! And it made it to the front of! Yes, I know that it’s only because it ruined the comeback of the non-rapists at Duke, but, y’know, I’ll take what I can get. Especially after two days of French Open rainouts. (aside to the new president, please look into the whole weather situation, TIA!)

If you haven’t seen Coming to America lately, the title of this post is indeed stolen from one of its many genius scenes, and it does seem to suit the picture exceptionally well.

Edited to add: In other update news, congratulations to the person at the University of Paris who was the first person to reach my 404/Error page in the natural way. Special mention goes to which sent you there. I dedicate “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For” to both of you.

Didn’t get away for the holiday weekend? No one around to drink spiked lemonade with? While I am away at the Niece’s Bat Mitzvah, please enjoy these exciting things I found on the Internets.

1. Trailer to the Ian Curtis movie, Control, (I think it’s from Cannes, if you’re wondering about the French subtitles… quite frankly they’re helpful for translating from Mancunian English). If there’s been one constant about this blog it’s been my desire, nay, compulsion to see this movie.


2. Speaking of subtitles, enjoy the French Open like me, with this handy vocabulary list.

3. New Digg-like website for bloggers. It doesn’t quite seem to have taken off yet, but I feel sure there will someday be more than eight readers.

4. What was that Nirvana song while Jack was driving? Who was the obituary for in the newspaper clipping? Find out at Lostpedia.

5. AOL finds the cuddly side of Memorial Day. “We don’t have a Dad anymore, but I’m sure this puppy will replace him just fine!”

The other stories are full of appropriate gravitas, as well.

6. Speaking of Memorial Day, Top 10 list of worst National Anthem performances ever. With video!

7. My new 404/Error page! Previously, you had been taken to the front page of the blog. Well, not you, you never make a mistake. Other people.

Well now we’re all ready to go back to work, I’m sure.

It’s been a long time, but I did actually recognize the Nirvana song.
