    When I posted it had 100,000 hits. Now it's almost up to 600,000. Wow!

    22B, I bet the number will go up in a hurry. I have seen links to it in a few other places in the last 24 hours. +1 for the Einstein sock puppet!

    I loved that, 22B!

    When I showed it to my six year old, he noticed right away Timblais was in a piano. (at 0:16)

    This video led into a discussion about other a capella groups tonight. A bit of music culture. smile

    One of our favorite is this one-it's not Nerdy, but we like it.

    Petpetuum Jazzile-Africa

    Fans here, too. The original is one of my all time favorite songs and the new content only makes it better.

    Our son recently brought home a "free time" paper from first grade that was all about the video from A Capella Science.

    He has amazing recall.

    We played that YouTube again for him last night and then for our family "movie night" we played, Back to the Future with Michael J. Fox. (I wasn't thrilled with the language in this, but DS was seemingly oblivious.)

    Today he made his own time machine out of Legos. smile

    It will probably take a couple of viewings to start to love it!
