Laughing Squid

Laughing Squid is the best.  It is my go-to for art and innovation.

From their ABOUT section:

Laughing Squid features interesting art, culture & technology from around the web. It is also an independently owned and operated cloud-based web hosting company. Laughing Squid was founded in 1995 by primary tentacle Scott Beale, who is the editor and head curator, joined by several awesome guest bloggers.

I have bookmarked a ton of their posts and, when I started this blog, I worried that I would just end up recreating Laughing Squid, so I avoided re-posting their posts.

But, I think that I was just being silly. I promise these are worth your time 🙂

First, a bookstore comes to life?!?!?  Great music too!

Second, Irish Hand Dancing ftw?!?!? Great music too too!

Do you recognize them?  They were in a McDonald’s ad not too long ago.

The music for this video is super catchy.

Robyn – Dancing Queen

I’m hoping that Robyn gets an SNL bump (like Adele,who is also amazing) and starts getting radio time in America.

Robyn is baller.  She dances and she is confident and she has badass hair.

On SNL she performed:

If I had my wish she would have done one more song (someone mash these three up please!):

 

Taran Killam Gets Down to Robyn

I watched the SNL episode with Katy Perry as host and Robyn as the musical quest and I was pleasantly surprised. Katy Perry wasn’t in every sketch but I thought she did a great job and this whole season has been pretty good (every episode has ups and downs, but at least I consistently say “Ok, that was pretty good.”) Robyn was amazing and apparently the SNL writers/cast were happy to have her!

 

I love the coat.  I love that girl from College Humor.  I love the flashlights.  I love the guy who doesn’t react at all.  I love that there is amazing technology just chilling, like, on the floor.  I love the roll.  I love that he kind of loses steam toward the end.  I love the tight pants.  I love the coat.  For reals, the coat.
