1) Keep your eye on the drummer.

If the video of the Korean Keith Moon doesn’t work properly, connect here.
h/t to Eugene Cho.

2) Still going… Former Prez Bill Clinton acknowledges he was tickled:

A lot of the way this whole campaign has been covered has amused me. But there was a lot of fulminating because Hillary, one time late at night when she was exhausted, misstated and immediately apologized for it, what happened to her in Bosnia in 1995.

All good said and done. Except that, according to Ben Smith,

the speech where she got in trouble for “misspeaking” about arriving under sniper fire was in the morning, she told the story more than once, she didn’t acknowledge that she misspoke until more than a week after giving the speech… and Pat Nixon visited Saigon in 1969 .

I guess it depends on what your definition of ‘Is’ is…

3) The Emerging/Emergent movement in the 21st Century Western Christian Church is becoming increasingly widespread. Now the Amish want in on the missiological fun.
h/t to Jesus Creed

4) First mistake: making a hit list.
Deadly mistake: putting Chuck Norris at the top of it.
h/t to Relevant

5) Also from Relevant:
This may just be too gourmet for Starbucks:
Dung Coffee (at 50 Pounds per cup, once again we poor blokes get no fun).

Update:
Apparently, the ever-thoughtful journalist Dave Barry uncovered this trend eleven years ago.
Some choice lines from his investigative reporting:

It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity. I bet this kind of thing does not happen to heroin addicts. I bet that when serious heroin addicts go to purchase their heroin, they do not tolerate waiting in line while some dilettante in front of them orders a hazelnut smack-a-cino with cinnamon sprinkles…

Then I thought: What kind of world is this when you worry that people might be ripping you off by selling you coffee that was NOT pooped out by a weasel?
