When I Wake Up

1. When I Wake Up
Keith Schofield directed a music video for the band Wintergreen. The video is about the history of the Atari 2600 game, E.T. The Extraterrestrial and makes the claim that it was "the worst game Atari ever made." This may be true, but it certainly wasn't the worst game playable on the Atari 2600. That honor should probably go to Kool-Aid Man in my opinion.

More Music Videos

2. More Music Videos
The other examples of Keith Schofield's music videos are pretty great too. Especially check out One with the Freaks and PI.

Cuttlefish

3. Cuttlefish
Since you've already wasted so much time watching videos on the internet, you might as well spend another hour watching this nature program from NOVA about the incredible cuttlefish, The Kings of Camouflage.

Brothers Chaps

4. Brothers Chaps
It looks like the guys that created Homestar Runner are making enough money to have their very own personal basketball court.

Duel

5. Duel
Buddy Rich and Animal duke it out in a no holds barred drum battle from the Muppet Show. Maybe I shouldn't give away the ending, but Buddy kicks Animal's ass.

The cuttlefish, along with octopi, remain some of my absolute favorites of the Sea. What a wonderful creature, one of the coolest this world has to offer. I hope your
sis watches the video on your page about 'em, because all I could do -when relating the beauty of the cuttlefish to her- was to say different variations of the phrase "It's so awesome"

we watched most of this show on PBS when she was home for Easter. I thought it was awesome. I'm not sure what she thought.

I played E.T. a lot. Like, a LOT for YEARS. I liked it. I thought it was actually pretty hard unless you played on the level (I think it was four) where the professor and the other types weren't incessently carting your ass off to the city. I guess it was kinds boring, but I thought the Raiders of the Lost Ark game was worse.

I remember the Buddy Rich clip very fondly.
