This morning I had a good laugh when I saw the current Rolling Stones magazine cover in a Boston.com article. It features a naked Julia Louis-Dreyfus with the US Constitution and John Hancock’s signature scrawled on her back. It is unclear to me if the historical error is intentional or a gaffe. The Boston.com makes it seem that it was (sadly) the former.

How cool is this video? Scott Bradlee has created a vintage cover of Beyonce’s hit song, Drunk In Love with the help of Cristina Gatti who sings in front of a 5 piece band that replicates the big band sound that was so popular before rock & roll in the 1940s.
Take a listen and tell me what you think. I loved it.

I previously wrote about how Neil Patrick Harris was named the Hasty Pudding Theatricals 2014 Man of the Year. Yesterday NPH came to Harvard to collect his award and as you can see he looked quite dapper.

However, as the ceremonies started, the ribbing and jesting began and of course, it wouldn’t be the Hasty Pudding if there wasn’t any cross-dressing and kissing. Do you think David Burtka was jealous; I doubt it. Here is a quick overview of all the fun in Cambridge courtesy of Reuters.
Harvard University’s Hasty Pudding Theatricals has named Neil Patrick Harris as this year’s “Man of the Year”. He will be given his pudding pot following a parade through Harvard Square and roast scheduled for Friday, February 7th.
