From the guy who brought you Actual Cannibal Shia Labeouf and Christian Bale is at Your Party comes a new musical:
In every disaster movie, some guy bursts into the Oval Office and says, "Mr. President! There's an asteroid headed directly for the earth!" This is that guy's story. [password: calvert]

You know, I wanted not to like this but... that's darn fine humor.

I'm onto you, Rory. You just like him because he's in Tally Hall.

That's actually exactly the logic that went into this. Curse you! I'll just lay low for a little while before the next secret conversion attempt.

(Also, if you haven't heard "Christian Bale is at Your Party", you owe it to yourself to give it a listen. It is so, so much better than any song with that title has any right to be.)

No, I know. It is fantastic. (And I've been listening to Tally Hall here and there – great stuff.)

Kinda weird that this is password-protected. Did you just guess the password?

Calvert?! I can only think that someone is a Hawkwind fan.

Spell check there, Gilbert and Sullivan.

Usually nonsecure passwords of this sort are to prevent the thing from being hammered by search engines and other robots.

I listened to this on the strength of the Shia LeBeouf song, but that is still my favorite.
