Video Sunday: Exit Pig One
Yeah. I linked to the Scholastic blog’s post with this video, but then I got to thinking about how much I liked it (the goggles in the pool: Inspired) and I had to put it here as well.
I feel so old today. Thanks to Dodie Ownes for the link.
The description of this one on YouTube was a mere "Walken doing a Jackanory spoof on Jonathan Ross." I don’t even know what that means. All I know is that it’s Christopher Walken doing a pretty straightforward retelling of The Three Little Pigs. The sweater is worth it alone.
So I’ll be going to the 3rd Annual Eric Carle Honors on the 23rd! And who will be honored? None other than Maurice Sendak himself. I’m so excited and I just can’t hide it. In preparation for working myself up to actually saying something to the guy (we’re taking bets now with odds of 10:1) I will be watching this interview with him from MIT called Descent into Limbo. It won’t embed here, so best that you watch it on your own. Thanks to Educating Alice for the link.
Oh yeah. This next video is tooootally not appropriate for work. But there is something comforting in knowing that there are other people out there with problems with this doggone book. You’re going to have to scroll down to the bottom of this page to see it.

Thanks to bookshelves of doom for the link.
And finally, for our random non-kidlit related video of the day it’s Pac-Man as horror spoof. I don’t care what they do. I can’t side with those ghosts. They always win in the end anyway.
