Here’s one way to explain it: it starts out weird, and then gets weirder.

All of the episodes are about five and a half minutes. The plots are simple, kooky, and you’d have a tough time predicting what would happen next.

Hopefully these episodes provided a good study break, or just enhanced the break you were already enjoying!

Wacky-Music Wednesdays

Follow the path of my fellow Butler Bloggers I bring to you today a post devoted to some new music. And let me tell you, I am more excited for this music than anything else I’ve listened to in a long time.

Ronald Jenkees is one of those musical wonders both for his skill as well as the means of his rise to fame. Getting started on Youtube, his fans fell in love both with his music as well as his quirky personality. The big hits led to some record deals and two albums.

Unfortunately, he’s one of those artists who put time into the crafting of their works. Meaning it’s been years since we’ve gotten anything from him. Meaning that his third album will assuredly match or exceed what he has produced in the past. Meaning you need to follow him on his website, or search his name on Youtube or iTunes to find what else he is working on.

Juventus Overcomes Napoli 3-0

Here are the highlights of the Italian Championship between Juventus and Napoli. Juventus won 3-0! It was a fantastic game (given that I have been won over by the ever charismatic Juventus) and I now make it my mission to see their games whenever I can. The most amazing goal of the game comes at minute 4:00 of this clip.

Naturally, it would have been impossible to avoid the soccer fever, given that I already find it to be one of the most entertaining sports to watch. I appreciate this side of the Atlantic quite a bit more given that when I tell people how American football is a brutish, ugly sport for the weak of mind, I don’t receive cold shoulders, icy stares, or a string of words that are better left unrepeated.

What I remember vividly from the States are the complaints that soccer is just “too boring.” Well, to aid in the inculcation of culture into my readership, I offer hear a list of the ways to make soccer an enjoyable sport–advice taken straight from the actions of Italians.

1) Like the fans of Roma, choose one team to become a fan of. Then, despise all other teams regardless of nationality, skill level, or reason.

2) While watching the game,  work yourself into a great fit over every little thing that happens. If things are going poorly, lament to the heavens that all is lost. Then, when things turn around become ecstatic.

3) Physical movement: jump, pout, shout, storm out, clap, slap, don’t nap, bang the wall, let your head fall, shake your fist at the ref’s call, cheer, sneer, and above all bear in mind that you have now become very entertaining to your friends.

4) If your interested in learning a bit of Italian, the more vulgar side, watch with Italians.

5) Pay attention! In the fifty minutes that pass before the first goal is a subtly building tension that makes that one goal a thousand times more satisfying than the bevy of points we experience in every game of basketball. Hockey fans might be better equipped to understand this.

Of course, all of this cannot go without being said that Butler has a fantastic soccer team, and that unfortunately I have not frequented their games as much as I would have liked. Consider this a promise to see them more when I return!
