I have several posts rolling around inside my head that I never seem to have time to write. But I don't want to completely neglect my blog, so I'm throwing on some quick posts, like this one.
Our whole family loves OK Go (the band). Kent exercises to them in the morning and the kids dance around. (There's a future post coming about that.) Their music videos are what really set them apart, and Kent found this one yesterday. It jumped from 17,000 views yesterday to 1.7 million tonight. I love this video because it reminds me of some of my favorite, old Sesame Street segments. You know the ones where a ball is rolling along a track and counting "1, 2, 3"? This video is kind of like that, but with good music and more of a Mouse Trap (the game) feel to it. Very impressive, especially considering it was all done in one take.
At a deep-thinking gathering last Saturday, I turned the topic to my favorite Sesame Street segments, so I might as well add two of those here too. Enjoy the nostalgia!
As a kid, I LOVED maraschino cherries, so I was always so happy that this girl got one!
I just finished reading Malcolm Gladwell's The Tipping Point. In the book, he discusses the "stickiness" of Sesame Street. I guess if I'm talking about my favorite segments 30 years later, they've really nailed down the stickiness of their product!
