I feel like I've posted this before but I can't find it despite Candleblog's excellent search functions. Anyway, via Digital Digressions comes this wonderful Muppet Show clip (which reminds me of SNL's Tarzan, Tonto and Frankenstein singing sketches). I give you: The Swedish Chef, Beaker and Animal singing Danny Boy. (Make sure you have some tissues handy when you watch.)

Ah yes, as I start to mentally gear up for my annual SXSW Interactive and Film Conference trip, I am reminded that there is always a cooler conference.
TED is going on in Monterey, California right now. TED stands for "Technology Entertainment Design" and is a gathering of the big brains in those fields talking and performing for each other and generally feeling really, really smart about everything. You have to either be invited to TED, or you have to ask to be invited and pay them several thousand bucks. Here are some interesting TED-related links that I've stumbled across in the last couple of days...

I teach class on Tuesdays, which results in me working the night shift at VCAM. There's nothing scheduled tonight and with the weather, I have a feeling it's going to be a lonely, slow night. That's okay though. I can get some Exit Voices work done and organize my thoughts around SXSW. Maybe start to create a schedule.
In the meantime, here are a few links I want to share with y'all...

Boing Boing has linked to the website of a nifty little library in Brooklyn, NY that features out-of-print books. The Reanimation Library's site features an index of images scanned from some of these books. Clicking through the images is fun. Here's one...
It's a little like my favorite photo blog, Riot Clit Shave, from which I pulled the following image...

Here are some links that have been haunting my Firefox tabs...

Steve Benen linked to my film about him today, so a lot of folks are getting to see it now. Also Kevin Drum linked to it about an hour ago. 802 Online has it up too. That SXSW rejection is starting to sting less. :)
UPDATE: Thanks to Candleblog pal Neil Jensen (who has linked to the film himself), MyDD's Breaking Blue has the YouTube video embedded. Neil also does his due diligence and covers the Green Mountain Daily base too. Thanks Neil!
UPDATE 2: Here is a smattering of other sites that are linking to Digital Pamphleteer today...
LAST UPDATE: The YouTube stat counter jumped at some point tonight and now reflects 1,688 views of Digital Pamphleteer. I still don't know how accurate that is, but if it can be trusted, that's 1,648 more views than there were when the day began. Not a bad audience for one day -- certainly a larger audience than I would have had at SXSW, and the comments I've seen on the blogs are almost all positive. Some folks wished it was longer, but I take that as a compliment. Also, Candleblog had it's best day, visitor-wise, in months, even though the content that was being linked to wasn't on Candleblog, so there was some click-through stuff happening.
I guess I've gotta give Steve more reasons to link to me. Thanks to everyone who posted about the film!

Spine has a couple of linkable items over at the Dose this weekend. First he posts about an interesting dream he had featuring yours truly working at an establishment called "Only Bottoms." No, he did not dream about me dancing at a topless club. The Spiney one writes...
Last night I had a dream that Bill worked at a store called “Only Bottoms.” It was a computer store that sold only bottoms, which meant (obviously) PC towers and hard drives—but no monitors.
Bill showed me a photograph, taken at work, that he thought was funny. He was dressed up in a futuristic firefighter’s uniform. He looked like a robot crossed with an astronaut.
I told Bill that since he worked at Only Bottoms, it would have been even funnier if he had worn only the bottom half of the costume.
This observation was extremely hilarious.
Spine's next post was a bit more on-topic for the Dose. It's a telling indictment of the world's meat consumption and its significant effects on global climate change -- a fact not typically discussed by Al Gore and other environmental leaders...
Light bulbs? I don't know about Spine, but I light my house by burning lamps that are fueled by the rendered fat of veal calves.

...the online journal of Vermont filmmaker, Bill Simmon. Bill uses Candleblog as a repository of pop culture ephemera, amusing anecdotes and anything else he thinks is web-worthy.
fun words to say in a vermont accent
