Wesley Willis Goes to School

So a few weeks ago my class was doing some arts and crafts work (yeah, I know, I teach English but sometimes you need to mix it up with the activities.) Anyhow, I thought it would be fun to listen to music at the same time. So for a while I played some of my own music but then I thought it would be interesting to see what my students are always listening to on their ipods. After telling them it must be school-appropriate, one boy plugged in his Ipod and proceeded to play Wesley Willis' "Rock and Roll McDonalds" I was shocked! I let it run, and surprisingly the students liked it. I must say that was one of the weirdest moments of the school year. I thought you guys would like to know that the younger generation also digs Wesley.

Fifth Annual PH4H NCAA Tournament Pick-'em

The PH4H Tournament pool is back for the fifth straight year! As in the past, it utilizes a scoring system that uses a point multiplier based on seeding, to encourage picking upsets.

As usual, the winners are the people with the highest and lowest scores (i.e., even if your picks stink, the only way you're not in the running is if you don't play).

So all you need to do is log in with the username and password you used before, and you should automatically be back in the user group. Then just make your picks before the tournament begins on Thursday.

If you want to invite others, go ahead. Just have them go to this website (, and enter the password "reverse."

Good luck!

(Oh, and as a side note, I can't run the NIT Challenge this year, seeing as I will be unable to keep score manually while on the road. Anyone want to take over?)
