National treasure, Rebecca Black, is back with a new “jam.” Already having proved that original artistry wasn’t really her thing, the new song is predictably called, “Saturday.” It features such great lines like:
“Trying to get Friday out of my head.”
“Yesterday was Friday. Today is Saturday.”
“This is our song. We can do no wrong. Are you ready? Are you ready? Are you ready to go?”
The video also features hints of teenage drinking, lots of pelvic thrusts, riding a stuffed triceratops, and much improved utilization of Auto-Tune. Pretty much it’s an example of everything wrong with America. Enjoy.

Founded in 1970 by a group of students at the Portsmouth School of Art in England, the Portsmouth Sinfonia was a grand experiment. Their entrance requirement was unique indeed: non-musicians were encouraged to join. Or if you were an instrumentalist, you could join, but you had to play a different instrument than what you were trained to play.
The founders, among them a teacher from the school, English composer Gavin Bryars, did not set out to intentionally play badly or be funny. It was more of an experiment in the nature of music. People were required to attend rehearsal and do their best to play their unfamiliar instruments.
They became somewhat of a sensation in the 1970s, being invited to play numerous concerts and produce recordings.
