Rants & Ramblings

random commentary about culture, media, politics, technology and whatnot.



Recently, the Madagascar 3 remix video “59 Minutes of ‘Afro Circus’” led to a friend invoking “Kristen Schaal is a horse for 10 minutes!,” which in turn reminded me of last year’s “Loops” episode of Radiolab:

The episode starts by explaining a little bit behind that “Kristen Schaal is a horse” routine. And while the routine itself is maddening — in that it’s both utterly obnoxious and totally likely to get stuck in your head — the discussion of the audience’s reaction is interesting. And if that segment drives you mad, just skip ahead — the rest of the episode is still worth a listen (and the obnoxious meter drops quite a bit).
