Jack Black’s Jig on Yo Gabba Gabba!

I understand the big, new kiddy television trend is Yo Gabba Gabba! on Nick Jr.

Bright colors, weird costumes, music – why wouldn’t a toddler go nuts for this stuff?

What I like is the fact that some of Hollywood’s quirkiest are stopping in for guest appearances. (Amy Sedaris as the Tooth Fairy, The Office’s Angela Kinsey, Biz Markey, The Shins, Elijah Woods, etc.).

Here’s my favorite visitor to the set of Yo Gabba Gabba! – Jack Black. What’s not to love when a gamboling, jigging, giant Orange Dreamsicle of a man frolics in an uninhibited manner about the stage?

Hat tip to The Bloggess for the video.

Now, let me say, not having a rugrat youngster in the house, I haven’t tuned into the show. Matter of fact, I was pretty much unaware of it until I ran across the Jack Black appearance.

Then I was struck by a visual image I couldn’t ignore. On that side note, is it just my perverted brain that thinks the character Muno looks like something purchased in an adult bookstore?

Think about it – one “eye”, red, covered in pleasure-inducing nubs.

I’m not the only one apparently.

The San Fransisco Examiner’s baby blog The Poop pointed out the sex toy relation.

As did Glamour Magazine’s Daily Single Mom blog Storked.

Flash Mob – North Dakota Square Dance Style

Well, I guess I can officially type that I’ve seen it all now.

A geriatric North Dakota square dance group is using flash mob moves that they saw on Oprah (Thanks O!).

I’m not sure I’ll ever hear this Black Eyed Peas tune again without thinking of this AARP rug-cutting crew.

Personally the dancer in the red skirt is captivating for some reason, but once the gang on the outside of the circle gets in motion, that’s where I tended to focus my attention.

Feel Good Friday: It Takes Two Shrek Mash-up

This one has something for everyone – a little Hairspray, some Shrek, Napolean Dynamite, Steve Martin and Spider Man just to name a few. And best of all, there’s MC Rob Base and DJ Easy Rock.

10 Most Embarrassing Moments In White People Dancing History

I have told you people before that I have no musical ability nor rhythm.

I’m flogging a dead horse here at the SQ nest lately with all this musical talk it seems, but when I do flog it’s in a staccato and non-rhythmic way of course.

Despite that information, I do enjoy dancing whether anybody else enjoys my efforts or not. I think Elaine from Seinfeld captured my mojo magic perfectly.

Granted, I’m not the lone purveyor of party dance fouls, but fortunately no video exists of my smooth moves (fingers crossed.)

However, thanks to the glory of the innerwebs, other people’s dance disasters have been shared with the rest of the world.

Manofest has clips of the 10 Most Embarrassing Moments in White People Dancing History (not including Elaine).

The list includes celebrities, politicians, athletes and just folks trying to step in style with poor results.

If you’re in need of a laugh today, it’s funny stuff.

Wobbly the Dancing Squirrel

It’s Wobbly the Dancing Squirrel.

Actually, though, I believe it’s Wobbly the Squirrel with Parkinson’s Disease. Can squirrels get Parkinson’s?

This just doesn’t look normal to me.

Maybe he’s been eating fermented fruit like the drunk squirrel I posted another time.

Feel Good Friday – Hey Ya Charlie Brown Style

It’s Friday. It’s July. Time for a summer song.

Let’s kick it with Outkast andCharlie Brown.

Happy Friday everyone.

Feel Good Friday – Liar, Liar

It’s Feel Good Friday and time for some retro Liar, Liar and I’m not talking about the movie Liar Liar with Jim Carrey.

It’s the Castaways and in this clip from the movie “It’s a Bikini World” you get a groovy go-go dancer doing the swim in a red bikini with some swinging fringe. Notice the vampiric pallor of her pasty white skin. Good stuff. Also in the opening moments before the song starts, the bearded dude sitting down is Sid Haig who starred decades later in Rob Zombie’s “House of 1,000 Corpses” as Captain Spaulding. Also seated is Tommy Kirk, who was still trying to put food on the table after all those Disney teen movies including “Son of Flubber” dried up.

Happy Friday everyone.
