Space Oddity (by Chris Hadfield)

This is the most wonderful thing I’ve ever seen.

Maybe austerity ain’t so bad if it means Canadian astronauts making music videos about being stuck in space.

From The Rachel Maddow Show:
In a relatively exclusive, if serendipitous, interview Friday morning on the uptown 5 train, Jimmy McMillan, perhaps better known as the “The rent is too damn high” guy, told me and our adjacent fellow passengers that he intends to join the race for mayor of New York City (again) in 2012. You heard it here first. (Yes, he’s wearing finglerless gloves.)

New York! Whatta town!

Ron Gould, a Republican running for Congress from Arizona’s 4th District, has just released a campaign video in which he raises his shotgun and blasts a hole through the text of the Affordable Care Act. He then smiles, resting the gun on his shoulder, before taking aim once more. 

Good thing he put “Conservative Republican” in that chyron, to clarify.

hannajames asked you:What’s the best thing about performing comedy as ladies? What’s the worst?
The best part is we get to have vaginas.  The worst part is, women aren’t funny.
Anonymous asked you:Are you working on any solo projects at the moment?
Yeah, we always write our own stuff but are mainly working together right now.
Anonymous asked you:Have either of you guys met Precious yet? If so, what’d she think of Running with Chicken?
No!   We’d love to.  Doug Benson met her during a podcast and told her about it and she seemed cool with it.
Anonymous asked you:Who would win in a fight, Garfunkel or Oates?
Oates would win because she’s a black belt in sports.  Have you seen her muscles?
icecreamlife asked you:I was wondering if you both have any long-term goals that you’re working towards currently?
We really want to make a TV show so are in the process of pitching it. Cross your fingers!!
-Garfunkel & Oates

Here you have it: President Obama’s original a capella rendition of the classic, Call Me Maybe.

We’re looking forward to robocall season, when both Obama and Romney will be calling us, definitely.
