This is friggin’ awesome

I have a confession….the musical genius that is “Thrift Shop” IS MY JAM.

Yes… I turn it up to an ear shattering decibel EVERYTIME it comes on the radio. And yes…I even bust an awkward-car-confined dance move or two. Both actions most usually resulting in questionable side glares stemming from fellow motorists….But let’s be honest…they are just jealous of my amazing car dancing skills.

Thus, you can only imagine my nerdy science rapping excitement when I stumbled upon this gem this today…

Macklemore+Krebs Cycle= friggin’ awesome indeed.

  1. Your students should make some! Then there would be more awesomeness to spread around. Thank-you for keeping up with us!

  2. OMG, Alex we are one! I totally have “Thrift Shop” on repeat on my workout playlist right now…and yesterday I was JUST rewording the lyrics in my head to talk about “Thrifty Genomes” as I went for a run (i.e. extreme genome reduction…only got 20 genes in my pocket…).

  3. No Wilson. THANK-YOU. If only I had this when I took biochem…I might have actually understood what was going on….
