Administrative Note

Nothing is more infuriating than dead YouTube videos. You're waiting to click on what someone has promised to you will be a hilarious (or hilariously awful) video and then you see "video removed due to terms of use violation" or some namby pamby copyright claim. Because apparently half of our blog consist of links to ridiculous YouTube videos, more than half of which are apparently now defunct, I've decided to remove this frustrating possibility from your experience of our blog by replacing every dead video with Europe's "Final Countdown" rendered for three cellos. This rendition is possibly more over-the-top than the original itself, but a hundred times more professional than another version which is buried on our blog and which you will have to find on your own if you're crazy enough to want to hear more than one rendering of the song.
