I’m off to do some real work again, and I won’t be back until Thursday. I hope to have a nice surprise for you all tomorrow, though—a parody guest-blogger whose groundbreaking work on Barack Obama is truly breaking new ground. In the meantime, I’d just like to point out that if a furren song like “Jai Ho” can beat a good American song like “Down to Earth” that uses real English words, then clearly this famous chart needs to be updated so that it goes past 100. Welcome to the Obama Era! I do hope somebody over at Big Hollywood noticed that A. R. Rahman spoke of “the power of hope” in his brief but pointed acceptance speech, because that was code. Code for what? Oh, like I’d tell you here.
