Austin Bat Watch

More than 100 people gathered to see North America’s largest bat colony take their nightly flight en masse in Austin, Texas, on Friday, Aug. 17, 2007. Unfortunately, the bats took the night off. Fortunately, the crowd was interesting.

Babies and dogs…

…and fantastic video! What’s not to like?!

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES: At this time I can’t upload the videos in this great series. Instead, please find the Bumbo series here:

PREVIEW OF BUMBO III

Two-legged, bi-pedal dog

Seeing is believing. Just watching this strong dog was so riveting, I thought I’d share this clip, even though…ahem…Montel….*sigh.* Many reasons not to watch; only one reason to watch – the dog.

Gladiator Canine

In honor of love-thy-dog week… What? It’s not love-they-dog week? Wellllll…. I’m thinking it’s always love-they-dog week. It was a trick statement. This is pretty amazing!

Spinal Tap at Live Earth

They’re back! Watch them backstage here.

It’s Jerry Time!

Here’s a certifiable video/animation find: It’s Jerry Time! Catch it on the official Web site here, or download from iTunes (I did). Each video is a keeper.

Bonus: Awesome links and Jerry wear.

Talk to your doctor about Tequila

From the bowels of the hospital world. Just what the doctor ordered.

Cows with Guns

I sat. I laughed. I craved a burger. Very fun – and punny. Nice claymation!

Penguins on the Telly

An article in The Washington Post calls it “Extreme Filmmaking.” The BBC and the Discovery Channel’s 11-part documentary on PLANET EARTH begins Sunday, March 25 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the Discovery Channel.

Situation Advertising

For the most part, television shows have been beholden to the advertisers. Now, the lines aren’t just blurring farther; they’re becoming one in the same.

ABC announced that it’s turning the GEICO Caveman ads into a sitcom called, “Cavemen.” (A name so simple even a….)

Actor, caveman and former Kansas Citian John Lehr features his Geiko spots on his Web site, as well as his cosmetic transformation from actor into character for the ads.
