Wouldn't You Like To Be A Sheeple Too?

Everybody and their brother is doing a year end top ten list so today I'm being a sheep and doing one too.  I've posted a lot of vids since...holy carp, has it only been six months?  Anyway, I was going back through trying to actually tag some of my ramblings and I got stuck a couple of times rewatching some things.  Here they are in no particular order till probably the last three (the title links will take you back to the original post).

10.  The Goldberg Contraption Variation.  I've talked about my love for Goldberg Contraptions a couple of times.  This is still amazing.

9.  The Gashlycrumb Tinies.  You'll scare the children!  Wait, no, you'll probably just scare me.  Love Edward Gorey even if he does creep me out six ways from Sunday.

8.  The Macy's Hallelujah Chorus Flashmob.  We'll be looking at more Knight Arts Random Acts of Culture soon but this one is hands down my favorite.

7.  Hinterland Who's Who.  I don't know who did this but whoever it is deserves a medal and probably some heavy duty sedatives.  I wonder if the crack spider can score them some.

6.  "Whole Lotta Love" as performed by Michael Winslow.  Still knocks my socks off.

5.  "Dare To Be Stupid" by Weird Al Yankovic, who I'm still crushing on.  *Sigh*  Charismatic accordion players are so rare. 


4.  "Little Girl Blue" as performed by Janis Joplin.  Janis should be on everybody's top ten list for everything ever, especially when she's covering Nina Simone.

3.  "Little Wing" as performed by Stevie Ray Vaughan.  If you need me I'll be in the Mecca.

2.  "A Flood of Sunshine" by the Posies, both the song title and the effect of this amazing slideshow of art from Burning Man 2010.  If you think it's gorgeous here click on this link and watch it full screen. 

1.  "Shake The Dust" as performed by Anis Mojgani.  One of the many amazing blessings from this year was hearing this poet for the first time.  He rocked my soul in the best way.  The Social Vibe software that connected to To Write Love On Her Arms got a little weird but you can find them here

All right.  Whatever you're doing to celebrate the New Year, be safe.  I'm gettin' the flock outta here.


  1. Thanks for the recap, I missed several of these.

    Happy New Year!

  4. LOL, I think you and I were cross posting, bccmee...Happy New Year to you, too!

  5. Happy New Year :)
    Wishing you a year of health,
    wealth, happiness, luck, warmth...
    And loads of love of your dear ones!
    Hope the New Year
    showers you with...
    All that is beautiful!
    Happy New Year!

  6. Thanks, Jonia! Have a great New Year!

  7. I love these animal puns -- sheeple, carp, flock.

  8. Whatever I can do to entertain, Kurbiss!
