A music video set in my old town sent by an old teaching pal (thanks Candace!)
The lyrics are great:
Cactus wren on a Joshua tree, fill up your cup with pints of glee. Fire up the band and the old shotgun, in the hills of Yucca Valley. Meet you up at Machris Park, past Veffhaus, little fore dark. Catching air at Devils Playground in the hills of Yucca Valley.

Tortoise on the move over hot black top. Summer bon fires at Giant Rock.Shooting at cans with honest Jay Bolt in the hills of Yucca Valley. Yucca, cholla, creosote, top of the ridge theres a mountain goat. Chopper over head from Twentynine Palms in the hills of Yucca Valley.

Green Mojave and a diamondback, a family of quail and coyote trap. Moonshine gin form a juniper in the hills of Yucca Valley.Desert rat till the day I die, lie me down under western sky. I cant get away even though Ive from the hills of Yucca Valley.

The theme song to that city along highway 62 in the mojave high desert. Yucca Valley. Hometown to infamous Poland Brothers. Directed by Jimmy Salazar. Shot in Yucca Valley, CA December 2008.

This youtube vid my father-in-law sent me is a crack up. It’s long, but you only need to watch the first minute to get a good laugh going.

Of course creativity works!!

Saw this clip by following a link on my friend John’s tweet.

You know how when you type a letter into a search box and immediately a dropdown box of suggestions appears?

My friend Nathen‘s friend, Ethan, over at the blog The Quodlibertarian wrote an interesting post about measuring celebrity by how quickly a person’s name pops up when typing in a letter in a YouTube search box. His YouTube alphabet begins: Akron, Beyonce, Chris Brown, Disturbia…

He goes further by also listing a Google alphabet, which begins: Amazon, Bank of America, Chase…

However, I think that a Google dropdown suggestion box is influenced by your previous use of it. For instance, my “F” brings up Francisco Goya and “P” pulls up purses, whereas Ethan gets Facebook and Paypal.

Check out Ethan’s post here. (I had to look up abecedaria to see what it meant – and then immediately wanted to use it as a post title like he did. It’s matching a word to each letter; an abecedarium is a primer, often used to teach the alphabet.)

Thanks for sharing, Kimetha!

Got it off Boing Boing.

Pretty funny. All the grown-up interaction has been edited out (you can see the shadows). Enjoy.
