1. Your mid-afternoon, post-Labor-Day pick-me-up. From Boing Boing:

    I post this not just because it’s the cast of AMC’s Mad Men performing Rick Astley’s famous Rick-rolling anthem one word at a time, but also because of the sheer man hours spent looking for each word in the lyrics being said at any point during the show’s first four seasons — which, if every episode is about 42 minutes, amounts to about 36 and a half hours of Mad Men — and then editing them all together, to music, in order to create the appearance of an assembled song. Please, bask in appreciation of YouTube user Buchan39’s efforts. (Thanks, Pete!)
