(*Update 3/12/07: Some of these videos are no longer available. The IP police have snatched away all but the last two from YouTube.)
For your singing and dancing pleasure over the next five days. No lip-syncing — all of this is live!
I’ll be back Wednesday. If you leave a comment while I’m gone, I won’t be able to post it til I get back, but I will post it then. (Unless you’re a spammer!) Have a blast. Be safe.
