YouTube cuteness

Am I the last person to know about Julia Nunes? She's a YouTube phenom whom I hadn't heard of until today. She plays the ukele (among other things), sings, makes really fun videos of pop songs and is in general highly entertaining. I want to stress that I do not have a crush on this girl, because she is a child, oh my gosh. I don't know how young she is, but one look at her tells me she's wayyyyyy too young. Still, how cute is this video? It's "Accidentally in Love," by Counting Crows. Check out her other videos and music here.

Not cool, Grey's. Not cool.

So, since the outrage about Brooke Smith getting canned from Grey's Anatomy is all over the lesbo blogosphere, I'm not going to get into all that. OK, I will just a little bit. I call bullshit! If the rumors are true that she wasn't "pretty" enough for ABC, they can go fuck themselves. There is nothing wrong with Brooke Smith. Granted, I wasn't completely in love with the way this story was playing out -- we were reminded one too many times how much Callie looooves sex with dudes (which is fine, I think she's clearly at least bisexual, but give us a break, already). But I did love the layers it was adding to both of their characters. And now, poof! No more. But again, I don't want to break it down too much, because like I said, it's being done all over the place. I just wanted to mention this: Grey's has always used song titles for its episode titles. It's colossally FUCKED UP that they fired Brooke Smith and ended a lesbian relationship on an episode called "Rise Up," the title of an Indigo Girls song. Faux pas, dude.
