It's the 20th anniversary of The Pixies' classic album Doolittle
I saw them live last night at The Fox Theater in Oakland; they played Doolittle all the way through, plus a bunch of tracks off Surfer Rosa
. Really great. Big sound. Cool videos (short films really) for all the songs on the album.
They played 3 shows at The Fox, and they are still on tour through December
(then they head down under in 2010).
I also found out that they have some free tunes for download on their site. I thought you might be interested....

I mention this video in a recent post that I did on LaughingSquid
as the same director also directed a few cool commercials with the Mythbusters
guys in them.
But it felt off-topic and like too many videos to put in one post, so I excluded this amazingly catchy parody of the TJ-reality. So I decided to share it here instead.
Two posts in one day, this could portend grave happenings.

This must be one of my favorite Daily Show segments ever. They could stop a couple times along the way, but thankfully they see the satire all the way through. And there is a lot of damning evidence: CNN is a weak weak choice for news.
Those who celebrate goat *ucking will be particularly excited.
