  • Lots of Videos

    I hate it when people just post videos. I never have time to watch them all, since I’m looking at my own videos that compel me. So here are the videos that have compelled me lately. Just one on the main page, more after the jump. Ben Folds – Kate in Nashville (and more from…

  • Rollerskating Ninjas

    Perfect. via Japan Probe.

  • Music Vids of the Day

    Both covers. Both awesome. Blitzkrieg Bop (about this song) by Gus and Fin (via BoingBoing): Rock the Casbah (about this song) by Rachid Taha (via Neil Kramer): Now that should start your day off right. It did mine. Off to the pool! And possibly Fry’s Electronics. Possibly.

  • Boøwy: Plastic Bomb

    Boøwy was a Japanese rock group consisting of Kyosuke Himuro (vocals), Tomoyasu Hotei (guitar), Tsunematsu Matsui (bass) and Makoto Takahashi (drums). They were a rock band that reached legendary status in Japan during the 1980s. Their style of play varied from punk to pop rock and they had fans of all ages. The 1990s band…

  • Some Kate Nash for Friday

    This week I discovered a show called Never Mind the Buzzcocks (episode list, lucimon84 has current episodes)– a music chat/quiz show from the UK. I found links to a bunch of shows, including ones with Lily Allen and Amy Winehouse. It’s quite British, and I don’t understand all the current references to TV Presenters, Footballers,…

  • Oblivious / Roddy Frame

    Stuck in my head like a stone in my shoe is the song Oblivious by Aztec Camera. Here’s a live recording by Roddy Frame, then the awesome lyrics. Aztec Camera / Oblivious from the mountain tops down to the sunny street a different drum is playing a different kind of beat it’s like a mystery…

  • Play Misc-y for Me

    I’ve been reading and listening to lots about animation, and one of the more fun things has been Spline Cast, a podcast about 3-D animation. My favorite podcast right now is Dave Ramsey’s 1 hour version of his show. Don’t bother with the 3-hour version, it’s not really free. My previous favorite podcast is Harry…

  • Good Weekend

    It was a good weekend. Pumpkin pie. Paychecks arrived on-time. Bills paid on-time. Leah‘s still back: awesome. Latest photos? Terrific. Heard good things from my sister by text message about the cytology of my Mom’s cancer. She continues to recover from her surgery. As Drudge would say… developing. Not looking forward to the traffic today…

  • Please Compare and Contrast

    Gerry Rafferty: Baker Street, from around 1979: Toy Dolls: Nellie the Elephant, from around 1984: Topics you may wish to discuss include video aesthetics, goofy British dudes, musicianship, seriousness and fun. I like both songs very much.

  • Obscura On YouTube

    I put up things on the web because nobody else has. As time goes on more and more of what I considered to be highly obscure, highly ephemeral objects make it to the web. This is a wonderful thing that delights me. It tends to destroy the whole notion of scarcity in terms of objects…
