What would you do if you had $35,000

Would you donate it to charity?
From NPR's Blog:

March 23, 2006 · "99 red balloons, floating in the summer sky. Panic bells, it's red alert."

Yesmy friends, you too will have this song in your head the rest of theday. And if you're desperate, you can watch the video over and overagain on VH1 this weekend.

Apparently,some poor fool -- I mean, good-hearted soul -- gave $35,000 for Katrinarelief through a VH1 fundraiser. The gift entitled the donor to programa full hour of videos on the network. This guy decided on Nena's "99 Luftballons " again and again and again. No word on whether VH1 will be alternating the German and English versions or not.

I am in awe, and a bit frightened.

That's pretty cool that they let him do that. What would you choose if you could program an hour of videos?

Did Barry Manilow even make videos? Hmmm...

So it's playing today? That is a cool thing VH1 did. Not sure I'd have choose that video to play for a full hour. I'd have to sit down and really think about the video's I'd want to see... Hummm . . .

Forget the videos? How can you be heading off halfway around the world (well almost) and have time to think of balloon videos and the crazy people who watch them?

Bon Voyage!!
