I’m so happy that Eytan finally has an official video. I mean, y’all should already know that he’s a kickass singer/songwriter, but now you can see him, too!

And the video set a world record for most costume changes in an unedited music video. Pretty snazzy if you ask me.

I’m so proud of Eytan :o)

Daisy, Daisy, give me your answer do
I'm half crazy all for the love of you
It won't be a stylish marriage
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet
Upon the seat
Of a bicycle built for two

The "stock music" in the above video is actually "Don't Move" by Dot Dot Dot. Pretty awesome, no?

And here's the full song if you're interested to hear the rest of it.

I love OK Go.

In case you haven't seen this yet, here is the video for OK Go's cover of The Muppet Show theme song.



They are a part of Muppets: The Green Album, a compilation of covers by many different artists like Andrew Bird and Weezer. You can listen to the album in its entirety on NPR. If you like it, you can purchase it digitally from iTunes or buy the CD at Starbucks.

I think that the only thing that could have made this even better, is if the proceeds from The Green Album went to children's education or PBS.

I also think it's pretty nifty that Disney decided to let everything drop today, my unbirthday. They're so kind, aren't they?

After watching the Damian Q&A, my friend Debbie made this gif.

It's pretty awesome, until you watch a few times and then it gets creepy.



PS He's saying, "Hi, Becky".

Apparently there's a fitness course in St. Charles in which you can train to be ready for the Zombie apocalypse.

"If you're ready for the zombie apocalypse, you're ready for anything."

If it weren't so far away, I'd probably actually try this out.

For your viewing pleasure. Or not. Whichever.



I saw these guys on Friday. I guess they were celebrating really early as the parade wasn't until Saturday.

Also, I'm keeping up with my 2010 365 picture project. Every now and again I don't feel motivated to go out and find something to capture, but I'm so glad that it makes me.
