It's April 1st so you know what that means. It means the internet will be filled with more than lies than usual. It also means that more than 1600 people are now embarking on the wondrous adventure known as the A to Z Challenge (if you're not already signed up, there's still time to commit! Just click on the link...). I've just barely been online this morning and I've already seen a lot of great topics. It makes my theme (
Anyway, here are some of my favorite A things:
This cartoon which ran in the mid nineties was one of my favorites even though I was old enough to not be into cartoons anymore. By the way, I'm never going to be that old (Phineas And Ferb is my current favorite cartoon). Yakko, Wakko and Dot, Pinky and the Brain (Are you thinking what I'm thinking, Pinky?)— anyone remember that one episode they did in French with a Les Miserables tribute? Classic! And then there were the Good Idea/ Bad Idea segments. And Mime Time. And the Wheel of Morality bits at the end. Oh boy, I loved this show. I suddenly feel the need to watch it all over again. Here's a clip of one of the show's awesome songs (and yes, I do own the show's soundtrack):
Since we're on a music kick now and I don't want my posts to get too long, let me talk about one last thing...
Addlepated is my friend Mike's music project. Last year he released an album he wrote, performed, recorded, mixed, produced and whatever else one does to an album before its released as part of the RPM challenge (NaNoWriMo for musicians). This past February, he did it again. The final product, Leader of Men, was released on March 27th. It's available for download (for free, or name your price) on the Bandcamp site. If you have some free time at some point, please go check it out. And if you've never been to Bandcamp, you should definitely give it a look. It does a lot of great things for indie musicians and we all know how important it is to support the indie sides of the industry.
That's going to do it for me today...See y'all tomorrow and thanks for stopping by.
