The Swedes are so appreciative of the little things I do…
OK, I’m in Parry Gripp jingle phase. Like, today I’m looking at razor blades at the drug store and couldn’t help but have Parry’s More Blades Better Shave play in my head.
Jingle Meister Parry Gripp is at it again with his latest video.
Thought this was a funny dig at AT&T on last night’s episode of Weeds.
Our little Bella Kitty is now featured in her very first short, Rockband Birdie Cat! Dru loves playing Rockband and now Bella plays along between the songs.
Oakland can be a great place to live – but it’s true, jaywalkers are everywhere and are real, real slow.
I went down to Santa Cruz couple weeks ago and shot this little video of Jay working on his new mobile home.

While attending DeLaveaga elementary school, whenever the projector was rolled into the classroom we knew we were in for a treat! Various films were shown to either fill in for the teacher’s incomplete class plans or to give the kids a little bit of a ‘fun’ break. A lot of films were public safety oriented or educational in some way. My all time favorite was this freakish bicycle safety flick, “One Got Fat”. In the early seventies anything with monkeys or monkey people was popular – “Planet Of The Apes”, “Lancelot Link, Secret Chimp” were big hits at the time.
“One Got Fat” still holds up pretty well, at least on a dark level. Poor bicycle riding was punished in gruesome accidents, even one with a steam roller, how classic! The background music and sound effects are also delightful. I’m sure now days, this film would be un PC in some way. Also featured, is the original snark narrator, Edward Everett Horton of Fractured Fairy Tales fame.
It is sad that our daily newspapers are shrinking or disappearing altogether. It makes me wonder though, in the case of our local San Francisco Chronicle, how much of this was an intentional neglect so they can get co-publishing mergers approved in Washington? The Chronicle was bought a few years ago by the Hearst Corporation and they are now losing over a million dollars a week.
Suggestion to the Chronicle’s Managers; making the paper smaller, with uglier typesetting and putting the business section on the back of another section isn’t going to help.
