Adam Good and Jon Lee (will) Kick Ass

Meet WE ARE SCIENCE! Adam Good, Jon Lee, and Hard Science's three man team for WIT's Tournament of the Fighting Improv Smackdown Tournament (aka Tournament of the FIST). Follow that link to find the tournament's various showtimes and schedules. They will be awesome. (Source Theater, DC)

Jon has some cool stuff on the web, but I can't find it all. Adam, too, has some cool things on the web too, among them this great anti-McCain campaign piece from what has quickly become "back in the day." What a favicon on that thing. Bravo. Bravo.

Why Would You Lie About How Much Coke You Have? (for February 22)

...a draft of something I think I'll read tonight.
UPDATE below for people coming from a search result!

And I don’t know what to do next.
UPDATE: It seems like this is popular with google... I'm guessing you did a search for "Why would I lie about how much coke you had?" looking for lyrics to a song you heard and dug. I love that song... it's Oxford Comma by Vampire Weekend and is definitely where I got the title (after many other attempts at writing through that). BUT... the line is actually "how much coal you had" because they are all faux upper crusty like that and getting "American Jane Austen"-like. Still -- it's a great song, the best on the album in my opinion -- now you have the title and can track it down.

I'm Gonna Bug Someone Who Has a PS3

Noby Noby Boy (from Keita Takahashi, the creator of Katamari Damacy) looks nothing like this awesome-anyway trailer. Thanks Justin for the headsup!

Loving the New Animal Collective

Mellower in sound than past efforts (nearly all of which get regular play in my life). Great for pairing with the Sunday paper.

And loving the cover online just as much... that isn't an animate gif... if your eyes are moving whatsoever it will look like it is undulating. Stare at the center and it holds still. Unfortunately this isn't as effective with the printed CD cover (not sure why).
