Speaking of opera, if you haven't seen/heard about Paul Potts yet, you need to take 5 minutes and watch the video. A mobile phone salesman in England, a mousy, kinda pitiful looking guy, the kind of guy that looks like he's always worried, never happy, and might be shitting himself. He goes on British TV (a UK-style "American Idol" *twitch*) and belts out Nesson Dorma like he was fucking BORN to do it. I'm talking a goosebump-raising performance. This guy needs to get off of that show and get himself an agent, he's absolutely amazing. Turn up your volume, he NAILS the ending. Well done, sir.
In other news, Massachusetts lawmakers blocked a proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage from reaching voters. BAM!
