Women would never think of becoming scientists to seek knowledge or solve world problems; they would choose science as a career field because they can wear stilettos in the lab — at least that is what the European Commission video aiming to bridge the gap between female and male scientists thinks.
It’s official, the San Francisco Giants are going to the World Series. Judging by our facebook newsfeeds, there are those who might be described as excited about this news. On that list would be Nate Houghteling and Kai Hasson, who saw fit to cover “Don’t Stop Believing” in their video anthem to the Giants’ season.
Berkeleyside describes the two producers as “Berkeley boys” although their website lists Nate’s hometown as Oakland. Close enough?
The video is good fun, but we’re a bit disappointed to learn that it was only made after the producers were “approached” by Giants officials. We were hoping it sprang from pure fanatical enthusiasm.
In what is just the latest in a series of unconventional educationalvideos, it seems some graduate students have created several economics videos, which include singing, Berkeley landmarks and statistical analysis.
What could possibly go wrong?
Apparently the videos have been used in some actual classes, and are a “a much-anticipated staple of the department’s annual spring skit.”
Who knows, maybe they’ll even help you through your econ homework.

Too bad we can’t say the same for the other crazies and dunces. We may have exactly that (crazies and dunces) at our protests, but we sincerely hope we can avoid the hot mess in our classes at least.
Oh God. Heidi Klum manages to make us embarrassed for her. We all saw Tyra and the Vaseline. We think our point goes without saying.
Then there’s this next picture:
Blogger NancyKay Shapiro snapped this beauty in a local grocery store in NYC. Unfortunately, she was the only smart one around (or at least the only one with somewhat functioning mental capabilities). We’re surprised it’s not wrapped with bacon and shoved into an oyster shell.
But surely the Hanukkah spirit hasn’t been ruined yet, Gentiles be damned! The Clog would like to extend a “happy Hanukkah!” to you all. May your menorah stay bright … and your heads brighter.

Devo – Whip It Live in UC Berkley, Sproul Plaza 1988
Complete with props, the Clog’s favorite kitsch/kink New Wave band performs its biggest hit. On Lower Sproul Plaza? What? This makes no sense, until you realize that “Whip It” came out eight years before this clip. But still, crazy man, crazy.
The Grateful Dead- Scarlet Begonias 1988
The Dead? In Berkeley? Well, we don’t see the connection, but maybe you do. From the Greek Theatre.
Corinne Bailey Rae- Breathless
Also at the Greek. From a recent show. Turn down the lights, babe, the Clog is gettin’ its grove on.
Talking Heads- Warning Signs 1978
It takes about 30 seconds for the video to start, but stick with it. Devo … Talking Heads … it’s almost like we have a theme going here.
