The World's Largest Lebanese Food Dishes

Way to go Lebanon!  You finally did it!  You created the largest bowl of tabouleh and the largest bowl of hummus in the world! 

Seriously.  I got these from this photo blog chronicling a bunch of Guinness World Records.

I think what I love most is how excited they all look- as if with that last spoonful of hummus they just did eek out a record they weren't totally sure they could break.  I mean, really, was this even close?  Were there bowls of tabouleh or hummus that gave these folks a run for their money?

In any case, I've never been so proud to be a Lebanese American.

Fast Blues Cover of "Tic Toc" By My Friends


It's a facebook video, so hopefully it'll still work even if you aren't friends with Jarred Coleman.

Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes (or My Current Obsession)

Watch and delight.  Try to get past how weird the girl singer is and just enjoy how ridiculously awesome this song is.

Here's another one from NPR's "Tiny Desk" series (which, by the way, also has had performances by the Avett Brothers and Ralph Stanley, among others).  They play three songs in this video, including "Home".  Don't skip it though.  It's clearly good enough to listen to twice.
