as a matter of fact, i don’t think 3 is too young for monty python

as it is, he thinks all the people on the crosses are pirates!!  (we haven’t watched the whole thing yet, baby steps)  i popped in monty python and the quest for the holy grail the other day and for the most part, it was lost on him.  he gets into the singing though.  i think he liked the knights of the round table song.

so with out further ado, D singing the chorus to “always look on the bright side of life” from “life of brian”

ps. i got him to do it by telling him the video was for uncle D.


my gift to you

happy easter…

so much better to have stuck in the head… it’s been in there since spamalot last wednesday (which i highly recommend. although now that i know the vegas version was abridged, i must now see broadway..or london..)

remember, he’s not the messiah.  he’s a very naughty boy!

one more way the patriot act can work for you

normally i ignore the ads on the sides of my facebook page. i try not to notice the annoying little messages lingering all over the net. sure, i occasionally click a few when i am price shopping and such, but mostly the ads just serve as a way to fill up white space in the browser.

i’m not sure what made me click the ad this morning. maybe it was the ambiguity of the ad. maybe it was the fact that i just could not seem to find a good letter combo to play in my scrabulous game and needed to step away for a minute.

at least it took me to videos with Frank Caliendo. for those of you unfamiliar with him, he is a stand-up comedian who is a MASTER impersonator. i hear a lot of him on sirius satellite. his John Madden is SO FUNNY! he can do anybody too. his kasey kasem/robin had me rolling.

so enjoy this video…..

The Elephants are Coming!!

while on my way home from school tonight (i had to drive an hour there so i could spend an hour and a half in the darkroom) i was listening to NPR on Sirius. i had never listened to the show Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspiration, but as i like about 75% of the shows on NPR, there was a good chance that i would hear something i liked and learn something new. i came in on the last 15 minutes of the show, so i guess i missed the part where they talk to the guest about jazz that was influential to them. however, what i did get was an interesting tidbit about an elephant film… or something..?

anyway, i was intrigued enough to find the website of the guest, Eames Demetrios, at, and the elephant film in question. it was very cool. but, then again, i love me some stop motion animation. (i once bought some Wensleydale cheese just because it had a picture of Wallace and Gromit.) so check out the elephants on parade!!!

i also heard him talk about his Kymaerica project. i will have to look into it a little more, but it sounded cool.

…because you need it stuck in your head too!
