Yael’s Variety Hour

Welcome back to the variety hour! Here’s my favorite links for the week, now with music!

Gem of the Week

This You. Beautiful post (and audio) on how powerful we can be when we stop hiding.

For laughs

Local Idiot To Post Comment On Internet and I’m Afraid We Will Never Win In Afghanistan Unless Central Command Gets A Pinball Machine are two great pieces from the Onion, one old and one new.

Hyperbole and a Half: Boyfriend Doesn’t Have Ebola. Probably is a hysterical piece about those dumb pain charts in hospitals nationwide.

Ever get tired of unsolicted advice?

Me too. Here are three songs about that… in very different genres.

Sara Bareilles – King Of Anything

Screeching Weasel – My Right

Ani DiFranco – Not a Pretty Girl (cover)

Shameless self-promotion

I have quite a few pieces up on the internet this week, so here’s just a few of them.

I wrote an article for Straight to the Bar on how to get your gym on the map–literally.

I was lucky enough to get to interview teen hearthrob MMA fighter Urijah Faber for MMA HQ.

And finally, I wrote a piece for MMA Ratings, MMA Fighters: What’s With the Attitude?

I want to get posts like this delivered to my inbox.
