Unfortunately, this is no average week. Thankfully, I finished plowing through The Wire, and Lost will go on hiatus after this week. Just in time for me to focus entirely on getting distracted by baseball season.
The primaries are still going on?! Yeesh. Here are some videos to dull the pain.
Thanks M. for trying to get tix. You’re the best! Continue reading February Video Interlude
I’ve been a big fan of Liam Lynch since his Sifl and Olly days, but only recently discovered his awesome podcast, Lynchland. Here a few choice clips to entertain those of you who are celebrating this New Year’s Eve indoors and alone.
A couple weeks ago, back when internet-research time was something I took for granted, I became obsessed with Scopitones. Thanks almost entirely through this site. Here are a few of my favorites:
Here’s a video made by the staff and cast of “The Office” about the strike.
NBC! Pay Toby so he can stay in The Finer Things Club!
Here’s the full version of that Tracy Jordan song I posted a couple weeks ago.
I’m being punished for my weekend of procrastinating, but am taking a hand cramp break to share yet another Flight of the Conchords clip with you.
Flight of the Conchords – Foux Da Fa Fa
I can stay indoors this morning and put together something worth your time, or I can slap together this post and ride my bike (It’s fixed, kinda.) instead. I chose the bike. But I still love you. Just not as much as I love falling down and getting bitten by mosquitoes.
I thought I posted this video before, but a quick search says I didn’t. My brain is full of lies!
I was procrastinating, as is my custom, and going through some of the home movies I digitized last year. I thought I’d share this clip from Christmas 1983, when I was four years old. The camcorder’s hooked up to the TV, which is what I’m looking at near the beginning of the video.
I can now say the word “helicopter” on the first attempt. Yay me!
UPDATE: Hey! I just remembered I have some more ephemera from 1983 on my computer.
Last night in the midst of an all-nighter (Alt-weeklies have to go to press early because of next week’s holiday.) my friend Dan called me up. During our conversation, he insisted I check out Gogol Bordello, a band I’d heard of, but never actually listened to. Turns out I like them very much and their two albums gave me enough rocket sauce to power through the mind-numbing process of correcting all my squiggles in Photoshop well past my bedtime.
And from their new album Super Taranta!
Hopefully they’ll swing by the sleepy backwater of Bostontowne sometime soon.
