Instead of our regular Friday Feature

of Krugman, Kling, and Krauthammer, we're going to try a new feature that we'll call:

A/V Friday

I've been reading incredibly boring material all morning, and I couldn't muster the intestinal fortitude to trudge through Pauly K today. Fortunately, there is a lot of great audio and video circulating around the 'net this fine Friday.

Start here with James Lileks' new feature, The Diner. If (like Danny) James has been turning you off a bit lately on The Bleat, it may be because he has been saving up silliness for his new audio feature, which is sort of a cross between Garrison Keillor, Dr. Demento, and one of those Saturday afternoon B-Horror-Movie hosts like Elvira, with a little Woody Herman thrown in for spice.

In this episode James plays not one, but two songs that are 1. at least 30 years old, 2. quite dirty, for any era, and 3. unintentionally hilarious. He also commits murder, and is forced to use Google to save himself from a Terminator.

After that, check out a few clips from the Daily Show.

First watch the aforementioned Soderberg interview. (Hat tip, Althouse.)

Then watch this bit on how to be a blogger.

Here is a cool "mash-up" version of the Beatles' Revolver.

Listen to the Legal Underground Word of the Week here ("Public Domain" cleverly accompanied by a song which happens to be in the public domain. And while you're there, don't miss Evan's advice to a certain anonymous Federal Judge).

If you missed hearing this poor sap yesterday, here's one more chance.

Finally, if you're still really bored, our good friend Mitchell Fait has compiled every Saturday Night Live Celebrity Jeopardy here.

Have a great weekend!
