A Musical Summary of This Summer

It's been a difficult summer, not because of the drought or excessive heat but because it's been completely unclear what the song of this summer is, which has caused any number of arguments on the tennis courts or among the parterres of the formal gardens of Colson Hall. Will it be Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know" or Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe" that comes on the radio in the assisted living facility in 2043 and reminds us of that steamy July back in "Aught '12"? Fortunately, indie duo Pomplamoose have solved this problem by doing a mashup of both songs, complete with a video that maintains their alterno-cred by having an indeterminate "New Yorker story ending."


  1. Oh dear. And the summer over so soon. Perhaps, given that we've already lost summer, we are left only with a horrible hive-inducing parody, such as this one --


  2. You know, 4,000 years of technological development just justified themselves in the simple fact that you can see the parody and the reactions to it simultaneously.

    Probably not entirely appropriate for an update on the mainpage of the blog, which is a staid, professional venue, but this will live forever in my heart.
