Cats Cats Cats

Okay I really wanted to post this clip. I'd never seen Family Guy before I came to college. And now I think it's hilarious. Anyway I really thought this clip was funny. I love how the show just has so many pop culture references that, if you're not up on your celebs and weird media knowledge, many of the shows funnier jokes will be lost upon you.


To keep it musically related, here's Chan Marshall who recently cancelled her entire upcoming tour. Sad face here.
Cat Power-Knocking on Heaven's Door (Bob Dylan/Guns 'N' Roses cover)

Also, if you have never done so, please go read Stuff on My Cat. It's amazingly cute everyday.
(P.S. I love YouTube)

Is that song supposed to kind of just start in the middle like that? Or maybe it's me.

That Family Guy clip is effing hilarious, by the way.

thanks much joe gumbo.

I think the track is taken from a radio session, so whoever ripped the track probably cut off the talking beforehand, but it does start at the beginning of the track I believe.
