I hope it doesn't offend anyone's preconceptions, but truth be told, I do more video stuff without puppets than with (Fraud? Maybe. Handsome? Definitely). This one is a "viral" advertisement for work, so someone's actually watching the counter. Being as such, it seems prudent to show it to people.

Longish though. You've been warned.

Clearly, I already started, and I'm working from the inside out.

but Tom's always talking about him

True sad story - I was a break dancing B-Boy back in those particular days, and I remember vividly when Graffitti Rock aired - we had just gotten our first VCR (it looked like ENIAC), and I taped it, and continued to and still, actually, watch it all the time.  But for 20 years, I never knew that that was Vincent Gallo until I spent a few days in Rome (Italy, not New York) in 2004, and went to a New Years (so I guess that also makes it 2005) party where I overheard these tough guys saying "Graffitti Rrrock."  So I asked them if they were talking about the TV show that was on one night and one night only in New York in 1984.  They said "Si," and started imitating "Prince Vince from Money Makin' Manhattan," so I joined in, and we were all having a good laugh, when one of them asked me, "ah-Did you find dis show by a-because-ah of Vincent Gallo, as well?"  I was like, "  ??? "
They told me that Price Vince was the Brown Bunny himself, and I've never quite been able to enjoy Graffitti Rock nor hate Vincent Gallo in the same way again...
 :-\
It also ruined my New Year's Eve until I heard that Berlusconi had gotten a camera tripod thrown at him from the crowd at Trevi Fountain, and when they found the guy who did it, a bricklayer from Bologna, his only explanation was (in English - a very media savvy bricklayer), "a-Becaowse Iye HAAYYTE heem!!"
 ;D



Now write me a receipt so I can tip on outta here...

Sure, Olbermann's great, but he doesn't hold a candle to Grodin

In the same vein... I'm a little embarrassed to put this up here but more hits = I still have a day job and can buy sandwich fixins. A little repetitive, but the good stuff happens around 1:45.

Wait a minute -- breakin', rhymin' against Steinberg, if you break it to us that you also did graffiti then we have a FULLBLOWN HIPHOP WARRIOR on our hands. Methinks the next TL/RX album will be produced by the RZA?

A little rubber O ring, a little metal bar, and the power of "Art". At least it hasn't killed anyone like Richard Serra and Christo.

Oh, the youth of today...
Poor Bob Barker.
Maybe Drew Carey can whip 'em into shape.

Man, I forgot how pleasing that C'monDown music is. I think I know what to call in with the next time that Yo La Tengo does a "covers request" call-in show.
