Friday Funday brings you some fun and interesting links from my travels around the internet.

Loituma [del.icio.us]

I guess this is a meme that I’ve been missing until now. I don’t know anything about the video, but the audio comes from the song Ievan Polkka by the Finnish quartet, Loituma. There are a number of interesting videos on YouTube, but I found this live performance to be the most interesting. As an aside, Morah is one-fourth Finnish (ergo Peltonen) and assures me that it’s a really weird language (insofar as it doesn’t work like any other language in the world).

Create Your Own Adventure [del.icio.us]

Remember MadLibs? So does PBS. Here’s my story: Thomas and Morah were taking a ship from New York City to Australia for their summer vacation. While they were playing cards one night, a fuschia storm rocked the boat for hours. Thomas hit his head and fell overboard! “Eek!!” cried Morah. But Thomas was sinking! How ever would he survive? Thomas woke up suddenly and saw water and squids all around. “How stinky!” he thought. Thomas needed to breathe, but was too far from the surface. His knee cap was caught in seaweed! Just then, a hermit crab quickly came to the rescue! The hermit crab took Thomas in its mouth and pulled him up for air. It made a THUD and swam away. “That amazing creature saved your life!” shouted Morah as 2 sailors threw Thomas a life saving spoon.

Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers [del.icio.us]

The story here is really weird, but I do like the idea that a sextet of rogue percussionists is travelling around and creating funky music.

Beakins’ Great Mango Quest [del.icio.us]

Beakins is an effeminate parrot who, instead of flying directly to the top of the tree, insists that you help him walk from branch to branch. They really should have called this Beakins’ Lackluster Mango Quest.

The Lobstores [del.icio.us]

Point-n-click to control the musical lobsters. You know I’m a sucker for this kind of thing.

  1. OMG! I LOVE “Music for One Apartment and Six Drummers”! I saw it at The Telluride Film Festival several years ago! Throughout the entire festival, I kept trying to find the director to see where I could get a copy, but I never ran into him. I even managed to track down the company info for the print source and emailed them, but never got a response. For about a year, I would – on and off – search the internet for it, but to no avail. And now, long after I’d forgotten about it, you’ve found it! You truly are a Golden God! 🙂

  2. Well, I’m only too happy to help. -)
