Feist for Sesame Street!

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.

Philip Glass for Sesame Street

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.

Artist Draws on Pieces of Trash and Leaves Them for People to Find

Wenyi13Wenyi15

Wenyi traverses the streets of Dali, Yunnan Province in China, picking up discarded scraps and drawing the surrounding architecture. He sees them as part of a personal mission to get people to see art in everyday life, and after each sketch is completed he leaves it somewhere more visible but still in the exact spot where the original piece of garbage was collected. See more images below.
