Oh Danny Bork Bork Bork

By way of Boing Boing comes this classic Muppet take on Danny Boy. Beaker's sweet sweet tenor (?) as he reaches that high note is a ting o' beauty, don'tcha 'no.

That show holds up surprisingly well!

Specs of Wisdom

Pretty much anyone who reads my feeble musings here is already reading John Rogers' terrif blog Kung Fu Monkey (check it out over on the sidebar), but I wanted to pass along to TV writer-types that he's got a particular useful post up now containing pearls o' advice garnered from staffing his new TNT show LEVERAGE.

132 Miles to a Deal

132 miles is how far I walked during the 2007-2008 WGA strike. I did guesstimate for the days when I didn't yet have a pedometer, including the rallies which typically were lighter walking-wise.

If I'd gone in one direction instead of in circles, I could've walked to these places:

Palm Springs
San Diego (almost)
Catalina Island and back, if I brought my flippers

And Warner Bros. was one of the walking-light gates. WGA brothers and sisters elsewhere walked much farther. If I'd been at Fox the whole time, I could've walked to, say, Fresno. But who'd want to?
