bare naked ladies album for kids.

I’ve been a fan of the Bare Naked Ladies for a long time. The band, of course. Not actual naked ladies. Upbeat tunes, clean and witty lyrics, music with great personality in general.

old school sesame street

sesame street dvd

Look what I found today over at {via the NY Times}: Old School 1969-1974 $39.98 {via theSesame Street Store.} Watching these old episodes of Sesame Street makes me nostalgic for the golden days of my youth. When my daughter was younger I used to buy up old VHS copies from of the early Sesame Street episodes, {and o.k. they were really mostly for me} but she went crazy for them as well. They just don’t make them like…
