I write today from an office of sorts and a job of sorts. Not phone sex, like my high school superlative predicted I’d fall into, but something more unexpected. Irony of ironies, I’m the temporary assistant coach of the Columbia Men’s Swim Team. I emphasize “temporary.” I’ll be out when Jim Bolster finds a more permanent replacement for Eric Scheingoltz, or when my paperwork is filed and I can work for 30 Rock, or when I (accidentally) burn Dodge Fitness Center down. Whichever comes first.
With mountains of paperwork to sift through and a steady stream of enthusiastic freshmen stopping by to say hello, there hasn’t been much time to write a Monday masterpiece. Don’t worry, I’ve got big plans for the rest of the week: Part Two of “Adventures in Public Transportation: Gambler’s Express” should be done soon, along with posts about China (the whole thing), hipsters, Batman (shocking), and another up-and-coming-band-you-should-totally-check-out-if-you-want-to-be-cool. But today, in place of something more substantive, I offer one of my favorite YouTube “re-cut” movie trailers. I know I’ve done this for more than a few Mondays now – maybe this should be my “thing” at the start of every week? Anyway:
Separation of church and state my ass. Anyone seen any similar trailers recently? I’m a big fan of “Journey AT The Center of the Earth.”
