When I am not riding my bike...

or parenting or working my job/earning money or doing stuff one has to do to keep one's home from falling into totally chaos and filth or reading, this is the sort of thing I do long after I should be in bed sleeping...

Inspired by They Might Be Giants' new album, Here Comes Science, I handmade three concert t-shirts for my fellas for our concert experience this afternoon down at NYU's Skirball Center. Fun, fun, fun. We all clapped our hands, stomped our feet, jumped in the air, & sang out. These guys are clever, funny, great musicians, and rockin' entertainers. P and I and all the other parents with kids our boys' ages are MOST grateful they started writing and recording kids' music.


Inspired by Meet the Elements: ""Elephants are mostly made of four elements/ And every living thing is mostly made of four elements/ Plants, bugs, birds, fish, bacteria, & man/Are mostly carbon, hydrogen, nitrogen, & oxygen."
Reflecting the lyrics F's favorite song from the album-- I am a Palentologist.


The horn parts of Electric Car are truly brilliant.

freaking awesome.

I want a "take a ride" shirt. We are TMBG fans here too. B and I have been fans since we were in HS. ( one john is from B's hs although a few years older) We too are so thankful they started doing kids music. I love it when my kids get all excited and ask for TMBG. Although Girlpie calls it " THERE might be giants" which is so cute.

I wish we could go to a concert.

We are SO SO jealous. We almost went! Wish we hadn't missed it. Glad to know you were there.

Awww. So cute! Maybe Dexter can have their hand-me-downs?

I like TMBG too, my best friend introduced them to me in high school. When I got my hair cut last year I kept singing, "Bangs... above your eyes your hair hangs..." in my head.
