In honor of Andy Rooney’s pending retirement from being the full-time resident complainer on “60 Minutes,” our favorite clip from the curmudgeonly icon of complaining about things he doesn’t understand. In this case, eBooks. Rooney will reportedly make occasional appearances, which is the television way of saying, “we like you, but you’re too old.” (Larry King made a similar exit from CNN under this pretense last year.) Rooney is a youthful 92 years old.

Today is Robert Gates’ last day at the Pentagon. *sniff*: We’re sitting in this coffee shop, blaring Boyz II Men’s “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye To Yesterday” from our tinny MacBook speakers. And crying. We’re getting weird looks, but WE DON’T CARE! source Follow ShortFormBlog

Senator John Ensign to call it a career
John Ensign, signing off: The Nevada Senator is expected to announce he won’t seek reelection in 2012, opting instead to retire from public life. Ensign, 52, would face a winnable but nonetheless taxing battle to retain his seat in light of the ethics investigation against him, stemming from his extramarital affair with the wife of one of his top political aides. Ensign is one of Congress’ members of “The Family,” the secretive, moralistic Evangelical organization that operates out of the “C Street” house in Washington, which made his marital infidelity seem especially hypocritical and irritating to his detractors.

On the Phil Collins tip, we admit to laughing pretty hard at this even though we didn’t really want to. FunnyOrDie, you guys are funny bastards.

Phil Collins: Against All Odds

(from ...Hits)

In honor of the man, the myth, the legend, Phil Collins announcing his retirement, we’re going to post our favorite karaoke song, “Against All Odds.” By the end of this song, we’re on the floor. Crying. In a puddle. Our karaoke style is very emotive. Anyway, Mr. Collins has said in the past that his health problems were getting to him, and told Rolling Stone a few months back that he considered suicide (yikes!). So maybe retirement is for the best. Fun fact: Phil’s “In the Air Tonight” basically introduced that very airy “gated” drum sound you heard in every mainstream pop song in the ’80s. Including this one. (thanks flavorpill)
