Some Groovy Musical Vids

Amanda has demanded updates, and she's right - the blog has been stagnant too long. So here are some cool vids that I've seen recently that I thought I'd share. First, here's one from Skippy's Monday Night Music Club and a fine piece of entertainment it is! It's kinda like Elvis does Nirvana:

And a couple from Boing Boing: Ukulele Blitzkrieg Bop. Now these guys look like they're having fun!

And Inflatable tube man dances to Cream's "Glad". Oddly hypnotic.

So, what does anyone else have? I always love to see cool stuff.

I present to you one of the most classic moments from South Park:

You can find this and everything South Park at the new South Park Studios site, from full episodes to ringtones. Enjoy!

North Korean Cunnilingus

It's dialectical, has a good beat and I can dance to it. Crank it up.

An Open Letter to Britney Spears

Dear Britney,

I know you have an image to maintain and all (albeit a bad one). However I have a request from all the folks here in the good old U. S. of A. Can you please just stay out of trouble for a while? How 'bout until after November? Then the dysfunctional mainstream media won't be able to obsess about you, and will be forced to actually report on real issues to fill up the void left by a dearth of news about you. (Hmm, dearth means a lack or absence. Sorry about the SAT word.) I know, I know, the media will still do an awful job of manufacturing controversy out of the useless stuff while ignoring the substantive issues as much as possible. That's a given. But who knows? If you can clean up your act why can't they? Besides, if you can manage to keep away from the police, out of hospitals, and generally out of trouble, you might get your kids back! It's a win-win!
Think about it, OK?

Hello to all the visitors from Skippy the Bush Kangaroo! I've been fairly bad about posting to the site, and wouldn't you know, I'd missed reading Skippy for a day, and now company has come to call. So welcome to all the visitors from blogtopia (and yes, they coined that phrase)!

The Spinning Girl

OK, check out this image.

Is she spinning clockwise, counter-clockwise, or both? Answers below the jump.

I see her as only spinning clockwise. The hubby sees here spinning in either direction; it changes if something causes the screen to change. I also found that if I look at the shadow rather than the girl, I see her spinning only counter-clockwise. Weird. For more info, check out this post at Neuroligca Blog. Enjoy!

Where Ya Been?

We found this mapping tool for listing what states we've visited - very cool! Here's the list of states that Alex has been to:

Alex's Visited States
visited 31 states (62%)

And here is Jeff's list:

Jeff's Visited States
visited 33 states (66%)

This year we'll be going to Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Maine, so we'll be filling in a few more states. Here's the link to create your own visited states map. The rules we used for counting a state as visited is that you had to stay at least one night in that state. Simply driving through or being at an airport doesn't count.

The Squirrel Catapult

I just saw this video linked from Casa BoingBoing yesterday: the Squirrel Catapult! This is just awful! What appalling cruelty to poor harmless.... Oh, who am I kidding? I hate those evil, destructive little bastards, and I want a squirrel catapult of my own, like yesterday! Now all I need to do is find a way to have it trigger and reset itself automatically. And maybe if I aim it at a nearby tree...
