I’ve been job hunting lately, and writing a good cover letter is the
most important thing you can do, but after writing them over and over
again, the process becomes quite tiring. It’s no wonder so many people
write lame letters from templates and get nothing. I thought it was

Everybody loves The Daily Show. At least, those who don't are of no consequence and therefore dead to me.

At any rate, Dimitri Martin's Trendspotting segment finally focused on social networking websites, mainly on Myspace, this past February 15th. Thanks to the miracle of Google Video, we can legally watch the clip over and over again… not because Google asked permission, but because Google is all-powerful and need not worry about puny copyright violations.

Just watch the clip. And laugh. You are ordered to laugh.

You've heard all the jokes stemming from the "I wish I knew how to quit you" trailer for Brokeback Mountain–In fact, if you know me, you've heard some of them from me. Now, someone has done an incredibly good job piecing together scences from Back to the Future films into a hillarious tralier for a gay love story called Brokeback to the Future. Prepare for 90 seconds of funny.

In a performance easily on par with anything we've ever seen on The Daily Show, MSNBC anchor Keith Olbermann absolutely puts the smackdown on Bill O'Reilly and FOX News. And to think, it's not Comedy Central programming, it's a real, live network news show! Brilliant!
