Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:

1. Somehow I seemed to have missed this fabulous, Glee-inspired opening number at last year’s Emmy awards.

2. On the other hand, those of you who can’t stand Glee will absolutely adore Sesame Streets’ hilarious spoof of the high-school musical comedy show.

3. Over on Salon, Thomas Rogers’ eloquent take on the homo-erotic nature of college sports really struck a chord with me. Here’s a teaser: “I was a mediocre athlete, that was fine with me. I had to come to terms with the fact that my gayness made me less butch than Ice, and that was better than being a douchebag.”

4. Married couples of a certain age will not want to miss Middle Age Cranky’s Guide To Marital Compatibility. I can definitely relate to the potential disputes over arriving at the airport early.

5. Love these actual Amazon customer reviews for this ginormous camera lens. (Hat tip: @donnatrussell)

6. Finally, your weekend will not be complete until you hear this three-year-old recite a Billy Collins poem. As someone in the You Tube comments section wrote, you’ll never want to hear anyone else recite it again.

 

Have a fabulous weekend!

    I had really hoped that with Jane Lynch as host there would be a Glee number, but last year’s (which I had not known existed either) was just perfect. I guess you can’t do something two years in a row.

    I loved the Sesame Street spoof as well. Muppet!Kurt was just adorable.

    The “Middle Age Cranky” post just tickled my funny bone to the core. I forwarded it on to my husband and several friends. We have been married 35 years and still spar somewhat playfully over some of those topics. ;-) The three year old reciting the poem was so precious. Once again thanks for sharing.

    I’m not that big on poetry, but if this kid just recited it, I would fall in love, I’m certain.
