Cookie Monster Sings Tom Waits!

23 08 2011

It finally had to happen…somebody put together a video of Sesame Street’s lovable Cookie Monster, synched up to appear to be singing a song (“God’s Away on Business”) by the gravelly-voiced singer Tom Waits.  And the result is pure genius–not to mention hilarious! Check it out here:

By the way, the word on the street is that Waits is coming out with a new album in October.  We can’t wait…

Just for Fun: Pirate Rock!

26 03 2011




The other night, a friend of mine posted this on Facebook, and I enjoyed it so much that I wanted to share it here. It’s a rousing sea chanty called “Keelhauled,” by the Scottish heavy-metal pirate rock group Alestorm. Enjoy!

By the way, isn’t the way they treated that guy a bit too rough? Oh, yes, that’s right. “Pirate.” 🙂

Anyway, I strongly suspect that no heavy metal musicians were actually harmed in the making of this video…so we post it here all in good fun.
