bacon + sausage, white house style, sxsw and motown

Some people took sausage and wrapped it in bacon and slathered it in bbq sauce. Does anyone really need to ask why this has gotten some attention?

I found this article about transitioning White House style interesting.

It has fun quotes, like:

In the West Wing, Mr. Obama is a bit of a wanderer. When Mr. Bush wanted to see a member of his staff, the aide was summoned to the Oval Office. But Mr. Obama tends to roam the halls; one day last week, he turned up in the office of his press secretary, Robert Gibbs, who was in the unfortunate position of having his feet up on the desk when the boss walked in.

I’m once again heading to SxSW, which happens in a month and change. The preliminary list of bands is dizzying. I’m looking forward to it, though.

It’s Motown’s 50th anniversary this month. Popmatters put together a good list of their 25 top singles. It includes a streaming music player. On my other blog, I put together my favorite Motown songs from 1959, their first year.

Superb Owl: the American Football Gamematch

People who know me may be wondering why I haven’t posted much about the Steelers, given that they’re in the big game.

Don’t worry: I’m excited plenty. I’m wearing my 86 jersey right now. I find it almost cruel that they’re making me wait two weeks between the AFC Championship and the Super Bowl.

In a related topic, Scott referred me to an interesting NY Times slideshow of alternate Superbowl 43 logos. I think I like two retro designs, this one and the one below, the best.
