We’re in what feels like Week 4,000 of the corona virus/Covid-19 quarantine, and I don’t know about you, but I crave good news, or at least a good laugh now and then. A friend sent me this link to how to sew a mask, and while you might think that this is a topic that’s been worked to death, I promise (promise) that this is like no make-a-mask video you’ve ever seen. Pay no attention to the fact that this woman’s first name is Kay. There’s no connection. At all.
Next up, Bob Bergan is a Looney Tunes voice actor, who’s been voicing Porky Pig, Tweety Bird, and other characters you’d recognize, for decades. In this video, he’s ad libbing new voices to 12 unfamiliar cartoon characters. It’s interesting to see how he works, and you’ll get to hear samples of his more familiar voices. (I wonder if he does audio books?)
Finally, you’ve probably seen this story, because it’s gotten a lot of coverage, but I couldn’t resist: Tom Moore, a 99-year-old British veteran, raised more than £20 million for the UK’s National Health Service by walking in his backyard—get this, after a hip replacement. He asked people to donate to his goal of walking 100 laps of the yard before his 100th birthday at the end of April. People gave generously.
That’s all for today! Take care, ya’ll.
Those are great, Kay.
I’ve ever thought much about hedgehogs, but someone sent me the link to “American Hedgehog Warrior: Course 3” and I found it very amusing.
That is so great! And that announcer is fantastic—gets the tone just right, seemingly spontaneously. Go, Pepper!
