A Taco Told In Texas

A Taco Told In Texas from David Gorvy on Vimeo.

“A Taco Told In Texas isn’t really about a taco. It’s about a guy with an eighth grade education who became a millionaire. And then he lost it all. And then he became a millionaire again. And then he lost it all. Again. And then he bought a used shipping container on Craigslist and started slinging the best tacos you’ve ever had out of it.”

This is brilliant. I wish I was still working in Texas, I’d love to eat one (or more) of these.

Bear fishing cam on Brooks Falls

My friend Dave Koerber sent me this link and I’ve seen various “cams” before (eagles, bears, cams on trees in the woods) but watching these brown bears fishing at Brooks Falls in Katmai National Park in Alaska is one of the best screen saver/zone outs I’ve found yet.

Various people have access to the cams and move them around from time to time which is also interesting.

A Very Stable Genius

Randy Rainbow’s YouTube Channel is chock-a-block with great Trump parodies. That said, the one embedded above is an incredible takeoff on The Major-General’s Song from the Gilbert and Sullivan light opera, The Pirates of Penzance.

Here’s more information on The Major-General’s Song including the lyrics which are hard to understand in the video embedded below.

Here’s the same song from a production of The Pirates of Penzance recorded in Central Park, New York around 1980. Note Kevin Kline and Linda Ronstadt moving around the stage before the major-general does his number:

I love that Randy Rainbow decided to use this song in his Trump parodies. My post here is not to make light of the damage Donald Trump is doing to the United States and to the world, but to show off one of the better Trump parody makers around.

When Steve Bannon got fired as Trump’s advisor, Randy did an incredible parody: Yes, We Have No Steve Bannon (based on: Yes! We Have No Bananas).

Sigh…

PS: If you’re into Gilbert and Sullivan I highly recommend the movie: Topsy-Turvy about their relationship leading up to the premier of The Mikado, one of their masterpieces.
