I gotta get my gimpy self to the movie theater and see 500 days of summer… in the meantime, this new music video will have to do.

The Whitehouse has an official flickr stream that has some pretty awesome photos from Obama’s first 100 days..
And I’m particularly proud of myself for my “they’re looking for change” comment on it. hehe.
I’m such a nerd.
Apparently, there’s another Dennis Yang running around, and he’s on “the rich list” in China. Check it out:
Nina Simone’s jazz singer daughter is coming to New Zealand. Lisa Simone Kelly, left, is Ghanaian royalty and also a philanthropist she set up a charity in her mother’s name to help communities living in poverty. Now she has agreed to support a new one, Art For Love, and she will sing at the launch evening in April. One of China’s Rich Listers, Dennis Yang, who is now a Kiwi, is behind the charity, which aims to sell the works of China’s foremost contemporary artists to raise money for various charities around the world. Auckland is the first stop and from here Art For Love will go to Sydney, Monaco and San Francisco. Each event will be different but this inaugural gala night will see Simone singing her own music plus one or two Nina Simone songs that have never been released.
So that charity thing is coming here to San Francisco — maybe I’ll go check it out. I’m always interested in seeing what the other Dennis Yangs in the world are up to (and actually, I really wonder if they’ve ever googled themselves and gotten me). None have ever contacted me like the Mike Hos of the world. Nor has This American Life made a documentary about “Dennis Yang” like they did for “John Smith.”
Hmm.. this gives me an idea…
Hey Dennis Yangs of the world, let me know how you’re doing! I can offer you an official dennisyang.com email address!! Ie.. Mr. Rich List guy: you can be iamtherich @ dennisyang.com — Professor dude: you can be professor @ dennisyang.com and etc etc etc..

I heart pie charts.
Yes, I am a super nerd.
