Am I imagining things, or has Lindsey Stirling not done much of anything lately? I really can't remember the last time I've seen her release a new video or anything, nor have I been hearing much of her music . . . though, I think I remember seeing where some people were saying they felt her work was losing its cachet. I guess she's fading away into obscurity?

Apparently she's still doing stuff on her YT channel... but yeah I don't think she's that big right now.

That’s why it’s kinda nice, a lot of older groups- Beatles, Stones, Elvis, Dylan, etc. will always be around. At one time they were also regarded as here today, gone tomorrow. But they stand the test of time.

Maybe Lindsey Stirling Will be more than just a Flavor of the Month.

You know what I’ve learned with amazon?

Once an item says “currently unavailable,“ you pretty much know it’s never coming back in stock. 🤷🏿‍♂️
Not always. Disney Pixar's Cars VHS was out of stock for the longest time, then I finally found a copy back in 2013 after searching since like 2010.

I just realized I am the only one at my college who wears a face shield! Everyone else just wears a regular mask!

I mean, long as you’re protecting yourself and everyone else, that’s all that matters.

I've had my computer for almost nine years, and I'm guessing that the L key is the one I've used the most, as it's the one key that no longer has its symbol on it at all . . . and I guess N comes in second, because there's only half an N still left on the key.

Isn't production music fun?


This is one of the Killer Tracks (before Universal bought them out) I've been planning on using as part of the soundtrack for Steve D'Monster's snow day short film that I still haven't been able to work on yet.

A lot of my favorite Sesame Street inserts, or at least a lot of the ones I’ve been really enjoying lately, come from seasons 16 and 17. Which includes segments I may not have been familiar with until seeing them online recently, or I had seen them before but hadn’t watched or cared about much but then a few weeks ago I have been watching a lot. And many of them in particular don’t have any regular characters (or are film inserts).

some of these favorites from season 16 include:
  • Carly Simon sings “Be with Me”
  • Loretta Lynn and the Count sing “Count on Me”
  • N-TV
  • Danger’s No Stranger
  • Wet Paint
  • Sunglasses Salesman (or is it the hair piece salesman bit that came this season and this one in season 14?)
  • Water Babies
  • Kids Just Love to Brush
  • Rappin’ Alphabet
  • Professor Grover’s Bath Time Tips
  • Super Grover: Computer
  • Smokey Robinson sings “U Really Got a Hold on Me”
  • And I guess most of the Teeny Little Super Guy segments debuted in season 16 (though how many were produced for season 15 I don’t know)

some of these favorites from season 17 include:
  • The first two Miami Mice segments
  • Kermit and Elmo talk about happy and sad
  • Snuffy takes off
  • Frog Kickin’
  • Imagine That
  • Rebel L
  • Daddy Helps with the Dishes
  • The three segments featuring Danny DeVito

I’m sure there’s other seasons with a particularly big amount of segments I really like or want to see, and maybe in the future I’ll suddenly be looking at a lot of segments I’ll suddenly like and they’ll happen to be from the same season, but it is interesting how lately I’ve been enjoying so many segments from those two seasons (and if there is ever an Old School Volume 4, those will be my picks for bonus segments).

Huh, I was thinking there’d been a number of film segments from those seasons I was a big fan of, but in thinking about the segments, I could only think of one for each season (not counting Teeny Little Super Guy). But I did find them on the same day and watched back to back and was swayed with the music (and I found that both were written by Joe Raposo).

Also, it seems like most of those have been officially uploaded by Sesame Workshop.
