  • Steve Scully: The most patient man on TV faces his greatest challenge
  • [caption id="attachment_9232" align="alignright" width="300"] Steve Scully photo by Patrick Gavin from his movie "Nerd Prom"[/caption] John Oliver has found Steve Scully to be "the most patient man on television." I was a promo producer at C-SPAN and worked with Steve for five years. I think he's been there nearly 30 years. He's C-SPAN’s political editor and senior executive producer. He was president of the White House Correspondents’ Association from 2006 to 2007. He's also a host of Washington Journal, which includes the great unknown of taking viewer calls. Steve is a class act and this is hilarious... Steve Scully is also a star of "Nerd Prom," the movie by Patrick Gavin, from whom I stole the headshot above #
  • Yesh Tikvah: There Is Hope
  • There is hope, truth and love in Truth and Love Himself To get the song, click here Yesh Tikvah sung solo by Benny Friedman in the music video, but with Six13 on the MP3 version Look around, far and near Where's the joy, where's the cheer? Why the fear, why the frown? Why the smile upside down? Shake yourself from the dust Scrape your soul from the rust Know that this too shall pass For in G-d we trust There is hope If we sing our hope together We have faith that is stronger than the terror No despair, no dismay Everything will be okay He is with us night and day Brother dear Dry your tears Take my hand, never fear Let's advance, side by side And let's cast our fright aside Don't forget all the love That we have from Above And you'll see with the dawn All the pain will be gone Credits listed on YouTube: "Yesh Tikvah" is the title track of Benny Friedman's CD. The song serves as an important reminder, an anthem, that even in these tough and trying times, Yesh tikvah! There is hope! The song was composed by Ari Goldwag with lyrics by Miriam Israel and it was arranged by Ian Freitor. "Yesh Tikvah" and the entire album were produced by Avi Newmark. The excellent lyrics are translated into English by Rabbi Eli Freidman. And the music video was produced by Moshe Bree of Ingenious Productions. #

"Whip It" by Devo Crack that whip Give the past the slip Step on a crack Break your mama's back When a problem comes along, you must whip it Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it When something's going wrong, you must whip it Now whip it into shape Shape it up Get straight Go forward Move ahead Try to detect it It's not too late to whip it Whip it good When a good time turns around, you must whip it You will never live it down unless you whip it No one gets their way until they whip it I say whip it, whip it good I say whip it, whip it good Crack that whip Give the past the slip Step on a crack Break your mama's back When a problem comes along, you must whip it Before the cream sits out too long, you must whip it When something's going wrong, you must whip it Now whip it into shape Shape it up Get straight Go forward Move ahead Try to detect it It's not too late to whip it into shape Shape it up Get straight Go forward Move ahead Try to detect it It's not too late to whip it Whip it good Songwriters: Mark Allen Mothersbaugh and Gerald Casale. #
