Had to post this.
I love this video. Brilliant.
It’s also an excuse to tease out that we’re *likely* to have a new section of Legal Insurrection sometime early in the new year where we can do more spontaneous, shorter posts in addition to the full posts in the main column.
Want to know more? Check the blog every day. In fact, check it several times a day.
Naming contest: What should we call the new section? Quick Takes? Insurrection Briefs?
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
Yes a brilliant vid
and why not Stayin’ Alive
as in alive in the moment?
Forget the briefs – call it ‘Commando Insurrection’. Or the more PC, ‘Drive By Insurrection’.
“In the shorts”
Like it, mostly: “Briefly, in the Shorts!”
Careful. This needs a trigger warning. 🙂
“Insta-rection”. Cuz who doesn’t love Instapundit and Legal Insurrection?
I visit both websites routinely, so I apologize in advance
Insta-rection….Fact acting Viagra?
I blew that joke up….should be “Fast” not “Fact”
A great body is timeless. What wonderful legs!
Sounds like fun.
Legal themes: “Sidebars” “Dicta” “Caveats”
“Observations from the Wall”
Insurrection Briefs? Insurrection Insider? Rapid Fire? Amicus Briefs? Short Takes? Inside Takes? Nota Bene? Insurrection Takes?
I’ll be checking!
She was once married to Orson Welles and to the Aga Kahn. Sad that she had Alzheimer’s at a young age.
Loved the video. Amazed at how someone could put that together.
“Quick Takes” would be my choice.
To borrow from Monte Python………”And now for something different”
Well so far we have 3 “insurrections”
Morning Insurrection (daily news letter)
So why not stay with the theme? If the articles are going to be shorter then I say call it;
Or Brief Insurrections.
This was my choice–actually, “Brief Insurrection” was it. I guess it depends on how many “briefs” will be in the post.
Cool! I haven’t seen that one yet. I love collages, so colorful and interesting. 😉
lol, yea I hit the submit before I looked at what I had actually typed, and I still can’t find that darned edit button, lol.
Stirrings and Ferment
Not sure why, other than it just popped into my head: Moot Points
Footnotes from the Insurrection
Or the almost too obvious: Sidebar
There is a French cycling term for “beyond category” — Hors catégorie (the “s” is silent when pronounced in French) — meaning the mountain climb is beyond a Category 1 level of difficulty. Somehow, though, “Hors Insurrection” doesn’t sound right.
If you like a French theme, how about ‘Petit Fours’. Tasty little LI treats to have with your morning coffee.
Sure to be a hit with the debonair, Continental audience attracted to the witty, urbane banter on LI. 😀
Cool Video – My suggestion Legal I-Brief or LIBS for short
How about “Quid Pro Quo”
I like this one to.
How about brief look in latin? brevis inviso
On the Docket
How about Asides? Not quite on the docket, but not quite off it either.
Unfortunately, my title is too long, but I’ll suggest it anyway: “Insurrection lasting less than four hours.”
“Legal Defiance” (For stuff that’s not quite big enough to be a full-fledged insurrection.)
Might I suggest Briefs? Legal Insurrection would get “Legal Briefs”(that “pun” seems to work out well), but “College Briefs” has quite a different connotation. Show me your briefs?
You first! 🙂
Brevitas Sine Gravitas
The Docket Side of the Moon
Docket du Jour
…I’ve got a million of ’em!)
Of course, legal briefs is brilliant…But, how about something with adjournment? As in taking a break… Brief adjournment?
Ohhh, how about “The Docket”
Brief Briefs from Tighty Whities? (Kidding.)
LI Brief Bulletin?
Briefs in Brevity?
Brief Beliefs? (or humorous edition: Levity in Brevity?)
LI Critical Briefs?
LI Incisive Notes?
Approaching the Bench?
Fast-Track Notes from L.I.?
How about “You Won’t Believe What They’re Up To Now”
Bite Size Briefs
Personally, I vote for ‘Brief Insurrection’. Seems to fit the theme quite well, at least to me…
Fun Size Insurrection.
Dear Mr. Jacobson,
There are enough references to law already. The terrific Rita Hayworth “Stayin’ Alive” video suggests the title “Swing Time.”
Mr. N.I. Silver
“One of the most prized sections of the American Mercury was its “Americana” section. H.L. Mencken used national newspapers to find excerpts of comically disturbing events, editorials, articles, or interviews to show the audience that idiocy and corruption were in no short lack of supply.”
If not “LI Americana” how about:
“All the Brief News Fit to Print” (a play on NYT)
“All the News Fit to Print – in Brief”.
Legal Insurrection Streamlined
Legal Insurrection Digest
Legal Insurrection Bulletins
LI in a Nut Shell (reminds one of nutshell series on law)
How about Micro Insurrection. It kinda sounds like Micro Aggression.
(We interrupt our regularly scheduled programming to bring you this breaking story …)
I don’t care what you call it. That video was extraordinary.
