Jay Smooth Is A National Treasure

[Alyssa Rosenberg]

Seriously, guys. On, the "We Are the World" remake / announcement of his new website:




I don't know that there's a vlogger out there I like more: his arguments are extremely well-constructed and married to a great sense of humor (this is a classic).  In this one, I about died at "In my opinion, having twenty people try to rap in unison about magic carpets was a bad idea, but it's not the end of the world." We don't have choral MCing for a reason, and it's not because no one ever thought of it before. Really, the only thing I liked about the remake is that it may serve my not-so-stealth quest to get Pink recognized for the talent that she is.

(H/T my blogfamily at PostBourgie, source of many wonderful things besides Jay Smooth awesome.)
