It Made Me Laugh

For those of you who don't know, I live in Berkeley and used to work at the BPL until I left to go with Infopeople. I love my library and am so proud of them for this foray into our multimedia and interactive world. It's imbedded in the BPL website but I think you should go directly to Berkeley Public Library, An Intimate Portrait on YouTube so you can see the comments folks have left. It's a simple little video giving some useful information about the library... but... it's funny!!!

LOLCats

I haven't done a Friday Funny in a while, so I thought I'd share LOLCats today. I've been endlessly entertained by all of the permutations of this phenomenon. Here's the deal: people take a picture of a cat (or cats) doing typical cat things like laying on a keyboard or rolling around a shelf, and put a funny caption on the image, generally using very bad grammar. And hey presto! you have an LOLCat. The purported history of LOLCats can be found here.

Holiday nonsense

It's the holiday season, and hopefully everyone is gearing up for some time off. To help put you in the spirit I offer you the Elfamorphosis, from OfficeMax of all places. You can upload a picture of yourself or someone you know (or just someone you want to turn into an elf), and a minute or two later you have an elfamorphosis. You can also call a toll free number and record a brief greeting that your elf sself will say as it does the happy elf dance.

Random Friday links

Want to kill a little time? Here are a couple of YouTube videos to help you. The first link is a Monty Python bit - need I say more? The second one is from a video series called Your Life's Work, a 1930's vocational guidance series. It's about ten minutes long, but is really a kick. The third one is a little video done in 1987. It's been making the rounds recently, and is very cute. Let's aerobicize!
