On The Olds Don't Know Where Facebook Is

No folly of youth is more quixotic than the tendency toward prescriptive grammar.

On The Olds Don't Know Where Facebook Is

Haha, this is how you horrible youngs ruined the word "blog" by using it to represent a blog post in addition to the blog itself. Joke's on you; We're destroying the planet in your lifetimes.

On Justin Timberland and Jay-Z, "Suit & Tie"

My biggest concerns:

* Amateurish placement of the touchscreen tablet thing
* The whole routine with the (what were those?) hankies/hobo-ropes should have been a cane or perhaps done with their untied bowties themselves, to stay on topic
* Why the Flashdance girl at the end?

That being said, I agree the song is growing on me. Feel like Jay's half-speed part should have just been at the end, making the downtempo parts a bookend to the central song, and continuing JT's tradition of great, off-kilter codas on his tracks.
