Cat Rides Roomba (video)

Does Gray Cat — who recently weighed in at the vet at a sleek 6 pounds 12 ounces — know about this?

And do I have a Roomba?

Not yet — but maybe not never.

"The most profound moment in movie history" (video)

Excerpts from the YouTube caption: "This short segment from Orson Welles' cinematic essay 'F for Fake' may be the most profound moment in cinema history. Here Welles achieves the miraculous with amazingly simple means (note the lack of music as an emotional 'guide,' for example). Introduced by media psychologist Dr. James N. Herndon."

Jennifer Granholm on "The Dating Game" (video)

The year was 1978 and the "cute and curvaceous" — as the host described her — 19-year-old future Miss Michigan, Harvard Law graduate, and two-time governor of Michigan was down in L.A. from her British Columbia home hoping to make it in show business.

She's totally stoked to be on "The Dating Game" and plays it as well as anyone ever has, ending up with Bachelor #2 and a date in Palm Springs.

The video was uploaded eight days ago by one of the losers — Bachelor #1.

Ms. Granholm's Current TV mea culpa (below) is itself sui generis.

Latinists will now sit back and smile knowing there is at least one of us still alive and kicking.
