On this day in 1517 Martin Luther nailed the 95 thesis to the door in Wittenburg Germany igniting the Reformation (yes I know I am glossing over it a bit) and eventually started the Lutheran Church. To fill in the gaps here is the Reformation Polka (or if you are interested in a bit more here is an explaination of what they are talking about for those of you who slept through Conformation). If you want even more, and to still be entertained I recommend Luther the movie.
Continuing the countdown to Reformation Day, here is a great little diddy with a few clips from Luther the movie. Who knew that Lutherans could rap?
eharmony has nothing on Facebook relationships! This is a great spoof commercial for facebook, it is too bad that there is a lot of truth to it!
I wish that the iphone would be on more services then just AT&T (like say verizon). I want it even more now after seeing the latest bit of google wizardry. The iphone now has google earth (as if google maps weren’t enough) It makes use of the location services as well as the movement sensors to give a really cool and sexy use of the iphone interface. Or, at least that is what it looks like in the video (below)
Netflix announced today that they are expanding their streaming video service to include Macintosh OS X (sorry only the Intel ones). This is being made possible by Microsoft Silverlight (the same technology that carried the Olympics over the Internet). The viewing service has been a windows only due to the odious DRM that Hollywood requires. Hopefully this signals the start of a move towards more platform independent video service. (fingers still crossed for Linux sooner rather then later) Netflix has also added a lot of videos from Stars on Demand and CBS (woot now I can watch new NCIS and CSI with out commercials) Hulu and abc are nice but no commercials is better!
I know this is a bit late, but homework called… To commemorate Reformation Sunday (for those of you who are non Lutherans this is the commemoration of when Martin Luther nailed the 95 thesis to the door).
The youtube video of the day is written by a band named Lost and Found, the song was originally sung at the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America national youth gathering. (I just happened to be there and it was awesome). For those of you who are wondering that is what the “every single one of you” is referring to at the end of the song… (here are the full lyrics).
This video clip comes from quite a while ago, but it still is good. This was from a press conference that Tony Blair had with George W. Bush.
At the Woman’s Soccer Game Cy the Iowa State mascot gave a presentation on the Evolution of Dance. The evolution of dance was first put forward by Judson Laipply (http://www.evolutionofdance.com/ seen below)
Marina Orlova (the hot for words chick) has an interesting word, Maverick. We have heard that word so much in this campaign that it was interesting to hear where it came from.
Hard to believe that it all leads back to a lazy cattle rancher!
Kudos to hot for words and their fresh sexy way of tricking men everyware into learning something!
Apparently Bill is not the only one who has had some fun… wow!
