This is a video of Danny Elfman performing at Coachella over the weekend, and covering The Simpsons theme he composed all the way back in 1989. That was 33 years ago. Danny looks great for 68 too — very sprightly. I only hope I have as much vim and vigor
This is a video of thrill-builder Bob “Rocketman” Maddox (previously: his jet-powered go-kart) taking the ACME Jet Skateboard he built out for a ride. Man, Wile E. Coyote is so jealous right now. “Admittedly, a better idea than I had,” I imagine him thinking to himself while unlacing his roller

This is a short clip of Tango the Quaker parrot (aka monk parakeet) reciting Tweety’s famous ‘I tawt I taw a puddy tat’ in front of his feline roommate Diesel. Some more info while I try to train the birds outside my office window to poop on command, then start
As a tribute to Hayao Miyazaki, this is a video demonstration of the My Neighbor Totoro Catbus zoetrope constructed by Twitter user marvelous media engine. The Catbus even has glowing headlight eyeballs. How about that! Although why is one of Totoro’s ears missing? I hope this isn’t a Humpty Dumpty
