Well this is just fantastic. This video takes the Susan-dies-from-envelope-licking arc from Seinfeld and splices it together to make it seem like George Costanza is recovering from a serious tragedy (which, come to think of it, would be true if the situation happened to any “normal” person). Honestly, if Avatar was even nominated for an Oscar, this deserves to stand right beside it.

Will George ever find love again? Tune in and find out.

National Book Award winner, Neil Gaiman, has a new picture book this week. Instructions, illustrated by long-time Gaiman collaborator Charles Vess, is a splendiferous, practical guide to the fairy tale world, with much real-world wisdom to boot. Hear Gaiman read the whole story, and follow along with Vess’ gorgeous illustrations.

DJ and world-music enthusiast Gilles Peterson takes record-collecting to another level when he visits Havana, Cuba to check out a local record shop. He made a video of his visit to this “goldmine” to help support his upcoming album of Cuban-urban music. Watch it to learn a pro-tip or two from this über-crate-digger, or to see him act like an (adorably nerdy) kid in a candy-shop.

Here we have the music video for Hanson’s “Thinking ‘Bout Something”, the first single off of their upcoming Shout It Out album. It recently got over a million views on MySpace, partially because band member Zac promised he would write a song called “Refresh” if it did. That’s not the only reason, however. The video is an awesome homage to Ray Charles’ role in the 1980 movie classic The Blues Brothers and has inspired the dance tutorial in the video below. Also, not to be missed is their live performance of it on The Late Show With David Letterman, where you see the wicked keyboard solo and brass section up close. Does this make you as interested in the rest of their upcoming album as I am?
