Round-Up: Monday, Feb. 22, 2010

Fun site: Rap Genius - interactive website to explain rap lyrics.

Funny and Interesting News: Interesting take on Alexander Haig's obituary, Indians Object to Super Cool Jesus, A slideshow of Obama feigning interest in mundane things, and the 14 worst onstage musical meltdowns

Read: Depressing but also inspiring read about Roger Ebert's Cancer Battle

Not Funny but Interesting: STD Infographic

Quote: “What passes for hip cynical transcendence of sentiment is really some kind of fear of being really human, since to be really human … is probably to be unavoidably sentimental and naïve and goo-prone and generally pathetic.” — David Foster Wallace, Infinite Jest. Oh Joaquin Phoenix.

Listen: LA singer/songwriter Rachael Cantu covers Ra Ra Riot's "Can You Tell" (Via)

Watch: I'm a Kevin Smith fan and all, but this is pretty funny. Especially since, for some reason beyond explanation, I've been following this "Too Fat to Fly" controversy

Watch: Mark Bittman (love his book Food Matters and his cookbooks How to Cook Everything & How To Cook Everything Vegetarian) talks at TED about "What's Wrong with What We Eat"
