transition out of the 'Bulls On Parade' intro was a little slippy;... so was the fill right before the verse riff... idk: it's pretty damn great that they're doing this, but it's the instructor/conductor's job to crack some more skulls when it comes to rhythm.

That Killing In The Name Of cover is absolutely epic, but I really can't stand 2CELLOS what with that Smooth Criminal cover and now this. Sure they have great chops but as a string player I think they're as cheesy and soulless as Vanessa Mae.

This seems the perfect place to post a few of my favorite Rasputina covers...

Wish You Were Here
Bad Moon Rising
Barracuda

And finally, a non-cover Gingerbread Coffin

Lordy lord. My daughter will be going to George Mason this year. Had I known.....(kidding). Nice place, it seems, and from what I can see very well run and organized. Growing like Topsy, if you know who that is.

The girl in red from the George Mason video? I want to hang with her. Absolutely fierce.

Ah. Hmm... not quite as much fun then. Still good, though.
