Things that Make You Go, "Whoa!"

A428_antartica It's a holiday here in the U.S., which means that there are many grills being fired up and many beers being consumed. Besides the obvious memorializing that takes place today for all of soldiers who gave their health and/or lives in war, it's not a day for heavy thinking. Er, well, at least not for me. So, I present to you some really cool pictures.

College Reunion Leads to Recording Deal For Straight No Chaser

Sncphoto5

I am not a Christmas person. At all. I don't have a tree in my living room, I hate the mall with a passion even during the off-season, and I hate — HATE — holiday music with a fiery passion. So I'm a little surprised myself that I find myself delighted with a group that got famous for singing a quirky rendition of the most obnoxious of all Christmas songs with the exception of "The Little Drummer Boy:" "The Twelve Days of Christmas."

However, the real story is not the song itself, but rather the tale of how, over ten years ago, a bunch of college choir geeks formed an a capella group called "Straight No Chaser", then reunited ten years later and uploaded their reunion performace to YouTube, where it received over 8 million hits and led to a recording deal.

10 Things From 2008 That Made Me Forget How Much I Hate Everything Else

Yeah, you know, we do a fair amount of kvetching and bitching and raging here at Mamapop. Either popular culture is just all around sinking to a Speidi level of irritainment...or all the writers here are a bunch of old cranky old cranks who have nothing better to do than wave our virtual rakes at everything that pisses us off.

I dunno. Tough call, there.

But! In the spirit of the season and the fresh hope of a new year, here are 10 things that made me supremely, sublimely happy in 2008:
