I think they played “Star Trekkin’” every. single. night.

Don’t touch the Llama! It has the right mix of appealing to adults and kids simultaneously. If you can do the internet radio thing, WXPN does Kids’ Corner from 7-8 pm ET. It’s absolutely brilliant (and you get some acts that for some reason don’t make the cut on XM such as Bubboon and Bubbles).

I’m considering buying a box of 64 just to keep on my desk to sniff occasionally. Mmmmmnnnn. . .

I was thinking, re the 64-box, that the sense of smell doesn’t necessarily fade with time, but it seems to become a smaller and smaller part of the sensory toolkit by which we organize our apprehension of the universe. Or, maybe not…

Makes me feel very happy as I put the finishing touches on my syllabus and meet my students tomorrow!

I prefer the really stupid songs like “Catboy” by Pencilhead and the Playground Punks. Or, of course, “Electric Car” by TMBG.

The Animal Farm, in particular, is wonderfully entertaining sketch comedy though not politically correct. I know many adults who enjoy Kids Place Live/XM Kids.

I am surprised you have not commented on the lyrics to Jonathan Coulton’s “The Princess Who Saved Herself”. . .

I was starting to feel impending dread for the semester coming up, but this is really a nice positive way to kick it all off. Thanks!
