By now, I'm sure you have all figured out that I'm one of those over-achiever types. You know the type, right? The type with 18 honorary degrees from 5 colleges and truckloads of kiddies that excel at everything. The type in the which you want to poketh the eyeseth ofeth.
I'm an over-achiever. Yes-sir-ee.
Let me tell you about my over-achieving summer. My plan for this summer - my only plan for this summer - is to watch every last episode of Phineas and Ferb. I'm not trying to catch up on the current Phineas and Ferb year. I'm going above and beyond. I'm going to watch every last one of those episodes. All 102 of 'em.
Do you know of this Phineas and Ferb? No? Well, let me enlighten you! Phineas and Ferb are step brothers and it's summer vacation. Each episode begins with Phineas and Ferb deciding what they plan to do that day. The plans of P&F are not as ordinary as going to the pool or riding their bikes for a snow cone. They build stuff. Like golf courses, animal translator machines, or their very own love boat (that turns into the Titanic.) Candace, their boy-crazy and simpleton sister, cannot stand their antics. She drives herself bonkers in several ill-fated attempts to bust the brothers in their current scheme du grandeur.
The side-show for these Phineas and Ferb episodes is Perry, their pet platypus. (Did you see that alliteration? Do you see why I have the sweets for this show?) Perry is a secret agent, complete with hidden secret agent headquarters, who has been sent to fight evil. Specifically, Perry has been sent to stop the evil Dr. Doofenshmirtz from ruining the tri-state area with whatever "ator" device Dr. Doofenshmirtz has fabricated.
This Phineas and Ferb show is cranial, creative and clever. I'm a big fan.
Now on to the tune. In episode 68, "The Baljeatles," Phineas and Ferb save their friend Baljeet from the impending doom. See, Blajeet, an Indian transport, loves school - especially math. Baljeet signed up for a "rock" class thinking it was something to do with geology, only to discover that it was a class about rock music. This "rock" class didn't issue a grade. Baljeet wanted a grade. And that is our Tuesday Tune:
Somebody Give Me A Grade - The Baljeatles.
If you want the entire eposide, you can get it here:

Now. Being the overachiever 'n all, you'd know that I would create a blog post to keep track of my Phineas and Ferb progress. Here's that post.
Also note that a full-length Phineas and Ferb flick is due out summer of 2011. Can't wait!
