The xyloaphonist is a great addition to The Dodos lineup. I have never seen somebody bow the xylophone either, and I really like the sound. Good song. Good band.
Cows like to cocobonk.
'Reading Rainbow' Reaches Its Final Chapter →
peroty: squashed: The show’s run is ending, Grant explains, because no one — not the station, not PBS, not the Corporation for Public Broadcasting — will put up the several hundred thousand dollars needed to renew the show’s broadcast rights. Grant says the funding crunch is partially to blame, but the decision to end Reading Rainbow can also be traced to a shift in the philosophy of...
Paris Syndrome →
bestofwikipedia: Paris syndrome, similar to the Stendhal syndrome is a transient psychological disorder encountered by some people visiting or vacationing in Paris, France. From the estimated six million yearly visitors the number of reported cases is significant. Japanese visitors are observed to be especially susceptible. (via @misciel) This baffles me. I don’t believe this for a second....
blues101: So I spent the day making new blogs because I am determined to not get a job and just become internet famous (hence the youtube videos of songs) so there are now: codysmusic.tumblr which is songs, nothing you haven’t heard yet, and because tumblr only lets you post one song a day it is currently only one song codysart.tumblr which is pictures and drawings, nothing i...
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go with friends.– Apparently this is an African proverb. Hate to attribute content to a whole continent, but I tried to get something more specific + couldn’t. via Ronen Verbit. (via tlvx)
So far, David Lynch’s Intervew Project has been nothing short of spectacular. I have been consistently amazed by the calm, nuanced, thoughtful feel of the series. This most recent interview however stands out as a gem. The Calloways steal the show, and force the crew to rewrite their interview template and adjust. There are some really magical moments in this one.

The Oswalt family crest should be a pair of eyes rolling off to the side, and...– Patton Oswalt (via justfakeit) I watched that last night and I really liked it. (via blues101) I too watched and really enjoyed Patton’s special last night. The routine about sky cake was the best.
Laziness gets a bad rap in this country. People view it as moral failing. Or...– Michael Ian Black

And even though the world goes on for eons and eons, you are only here for a...– From Synecdoche, New York ugh. (via blues101) I posted this months ago! What is this, amateur hour? Come on Cody, step it up.
Our fans turned into Wilco fans and they became adults. The shocking thing is...– Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind.
Ridge was never invited to sit in on National Security Council meetings; was...– It’s funny, but I don’t care any more. Just like the song says. Everything we joked about keeps getting confirmed—all the seedy crap that we knew was going on but still seemed too audacious to be really going on, brazenly marched before out faces. Forget it, let’s just all...
Time and space are modes by which we think and not conditions in which we live.– Albert Einstein (via minimalmac) (via em) Keep the mornings trippy this week!
Kind of Bloop →
em: This sounds awesome! mrgan: When Andy Baio first told me about his idea for the just-released Kind of Bloop album, an 8-bit re-imagining of Miles Davis’ jazz masterpiece, he didn’t even need to finish describing it before I let out a hungry ‘yesssss’. But even so, I had reasonable expectations; what these folks delivered yesterday is, it turns out, unreasonably good. It all opens with...
em: Visualizing up to ten dimensions via Clampants Trippy way to start the day.
