Jeremy Blachman's Law School Song Parodies and Other Jokes

Jeremy Blachman's Blog has a lot of things right about it.

Funny, well written, and indexed in another blog just for that purpose, (Smack! Why didn't I think of that!) Jeremy's blog is well worth the visit.

Rather than tell you about his day-to-day blogging, I'll just cut to the chase and list the things in the section of his index from song parodies on. If that doesn't convince you to visit, nothing will. You can tell just from the titles that this stuff is worth looking at, and if one isn't to your taste the next one probably is.

Blachman, if I've gotten it right, has just graduated from Harvard Law School and his blog has gotten a lot of attention lately (wonder why, like to do a cross-tab of hits by gender on that one, yes girls, he appears to be single and will still be seen in public once in a while with his mother.)

Recently his blog was one that Blogspot chose as a "blog to watch" and so he's been getting a lot more hits lately (and yes, see note above, there may be a little bit of blog forwarding here) but the blog, I say blog attention is well worth it. (Girls, you're on your own here.)

A NYC resident his posts talk a lot about life in Law School and at home. Those who live in Chicago know to take his subway criticisms with a grain of salt because CTA is so much cleaner, safer, and just nicer than those east cost subways.

But that's not his fault, you live where you live and his blog describes it in full.

One word of note. This blog is safe for work, I have NOT checked the links below for same.

IF you see a title that might be chancey, and are at work, don't click on it.

Oh, better check this blog soon, after getting a job he may decide it is in the best interests of his career to wrap this up.
