Beck - Clap Hands - Live on SNL

Here's Beck performing "Clap Hands" on Saturday Night Live.

I really thought this was an incredibly original performance where Beck's band is seated at a dinner table playing bottles, plates and glasses as percussive instruments, puppets mirroring the show and some break out harmonica playing. This is maybe the most enjoyable performance I've ever seen on Saturday Night Live. Plus I'm biased, because I think Beck rules. Check it out.

Hawkeye turned Green Bay Packer Abdul Hodge great first start...

Hawkeyes are making a good showing for Green Bay in Seattle tonight. Kampman is having a great year, Cole is playing and Hodge returned this fumble for a TD in his first start.

Diet Coke and Mentos, A Deadly combination

This seems like something Paul Brady and I would have done in high school and somehow gotten ourselves in trouble for it.

This is taking it to the next level.

Trauma Surgery, Beck and Vampire Beagles

I am Trauma Surgery this month. Cruddy hours, but fun cases. This is a case of a fracture/dislocation of the talus, and I did some conscious sedation while my ortho colleagues tried to reduce the fracture.

If you don't believe in vampires, I at least present proof of Vampire Beagles. A rare breed, they don't transmutate into bats but rather very small rhinos. Not really all that useful if you ask me.

I also wanted to share the new Beck cover. It comes blank, and you get to decorate it ala Trapper Keeper style. If you have the album, send me your pics and I will post it.

Fall Pictures, makes me miss home...

I took these pics from my deck the other day. Growing up on a farm, it's a little nostalgic. I am not sure what it is, but a lot of people probably look at pictures of a combine in a field and are bored, for me, they really can be beautiful. It's probably just the tie to growing up around them, but every year I enjoy a drive around to see the harvest.

Drew Tate, Dodgeball Style.

I'll still wear the Number 5 jersey with pride.
