Re: 930: Days of the Week

Can we only talk about Black's new song because it is actually worth one ironic listen and another to realize just how much better it is than "Friday"? For the record, the Stephen Colbert version is excellent. It's "better" in the sense that it is not hilariously terrible, but I...

I'm probably going to have to get my wisdom teeth out soon. Any ideas for good movies to watch on painkillers?

Re: 0846: "Dental Nerve"

Randall's version reminds me of those songs from children's TV shows telling kids to brush their teeth.
