Monkey Jell-o New Year’s

December 31, 2009

Zoo animals get bored, so keepers think up enrichment activities to keep them entertained. This year the squirrel monkeys at the Bronx Zoo encountered a brand new thing for the holidays: a Jell-o mold full of blueberries. Watching the video below (hit HD when you watch it, by the way, it’s nice quality) reminds me of my wishes for all of you for 2010:

May your life be enriched and interesting every day.

May you encounter new treats with old friends and delight.

And, once in a while, may you find yourself with a sweet mound of quivering jelly to slap.

Happy New Year’s everybunny!

Two songs I like

December 28, 2009

“Horchata”, by Vampire Weekend, which Hill just showed me, which reminded me of “Sleep”, by This Heat, which was in a plaay I did a long long million time ago. So there. They sound kind of alike, these songs, and I like them a lot!

Thanks to Hill for the t(r)ip (down memory lane).

Leonard Nimoy’s Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

December 25, 2009

Remember all those years when Xmas day meant going to see Lord of the Rings after dinner? Here’s a little throwback to that time. It involves Leonard Nimoy with the Spock haircut and a gaggle of girls in neon sweatshirts wearing the Spock ears and I don’t understand what it is at all, but damn if I’m not gonna be singing it for days now.

Merry Xmas if you lean that way; enjoy your Chinese food if you don’t. I’ll be doing both.

Gwen Stefani’s Test Pattern Jacket

December 23, 2009

Heart this. Would not wear this, probably, but heart this. Well maybe
I would wear it, but I’d have to carry some kind of alarm in my pocket that would go EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
for one minute at a time. (If my TV speak is too esoteric because you live under a rock in Pingzakhistahn, first of all congrats on your amazing skillz with the interweb, and second of all you can look at Wikipedia’s article on Bars and Tone for clarification).
