Feist performs her hit single “1,2,3,4” on Sesame Street’s 39th season. There’s a bunch of new lyrics in this version which teach children to count to four. I realise the song was already called “1,2,3,4” but this is a perfect example of how dumbed down television is now! We used to learn to count to 20.
When all is said and done, I respect Sesame Street for still trying to make learning fun. I just really really miss the old Sesame Street. If anyone needs me I’ll be in my trailer writing a hit song called “1”. I will also be writing a second version for Sesame Street that teaches children how to count all the way up to one, and in a few years time I’m sure that song will have to be replaced with an even shorter version.
More proof that Sesame Street (the original series) was the greatest show EVER. In 1979, famed-composer Philip Glass wrote a series of pieces for the show called “Geometry of Circles”.
Kids these days aren’t getting the visual education they need! So many of today’s designers were being taught design principles at an early age by shows like Sesame Street.
Drawings For My Grandchildren is the Instagram account of Chan Jae Lee, a 75-year-old Korean man and artist based in Brazil. Separated from his grandchildren who live in Korea and New York, Chan started using Instagram after his son insisted it would be a better use of his retirement than watching television.
While Chan initially shot down the idea, the birth of his youngest grandchild, Astro, made him realize that he won’t always be around to see his grandchildren grow up and agreed to create the account as a kind of virtual gift to them.
Helped along by his wife (who writes the captions for each post) Chan has completed a drawing a day, sharing everything from family memories and everyday moments to random thoughts and life lessons. Check out more of Chan’s heartwarming work below!
