“Dance for the Sun” wins IMA Children’s Music Album of the Year!

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

I wrote a while ago about my sister Kira’s album of kid’s yoga songs. Now the fine judges at the Independent Music Awards have selected her Dance for the Sun album as the winner of the Children’s Music category in their 7th annual contest. Not only that, but her song Caterpillar, Caterpillar (with me singing the bass line) was selected the best Children’s Music song. Hooray for Kira!

Go buy an album, from her site Fireflies Yoga, or from CDBaby. Especially if you have kids.

Bubble Video Takedown

Tuesday, December 11th, 2007

Our video was taken down from YouTube based on a DMCA notice. We have not see the notice, so we don’t know who or why. Kara Swisher posted in our favor, Valleywag had some criticism. We are in the process of compiling the list of photo credits and posting it, not because some self-styled copyright cops are demanding it, but because we would want credit if someone re-used our work. But we’re not firing off DMCA take-down notices to the several folks on YouTube who have already done it (deliberately not linked here). Nor are we threating physical harm, as some of the commenters on Flickr seem to be advocating. You can tell I’m kinda mad about the way this was handled.

In the meantime, you can still (for now) see it on Yahoo or FunnyOrDie.

Here Comes Another Bubble

Tuesday, December 4th, 2007

Kara Swisher says “pure genius“. Robert Scoble finds it so funny he spews Diet Coke through his nose. This could be my 15 minutes of internet fame! Matt Hempey of the Richter Scales deserves all the credit, he wrote the song, sang the solo, and created the entire video, I just sing the bass line and show up in the video for a few milliseconds. Enjoy!

UPDATE: Updated to version 1.1 of the video.
