Stephin Merritt Covers "Electric Love"

Before its third season's finale, we had the Bob's Burgers writing staff rank the series' best songs. No fan was surprised with the top choice: "Electric Love" from the season-three episode "Topsy." It tells the story of Thomas Edison's love for his elephant Topsy, which eventually lead to Topsy being electrocuted. The song is super great. Not just for a cartoon, but for music in general, what with its multipart harmony and soaring vocals from Megan Mullally and Kevin Kline. It also features the best lyric ever: "They'll say, 'Aww Topsy' at my autopsy." This makes it perfect for the second installment in the "Bob's Buskers" series, in which great artists cover one of the show's songs and then the show's animators animate it. We previously featured St. Vincent covering "Bad Girls Theme," and now we have the Magnetic Fields' Stephin Merritt, with the help of Kiki and Herb's Kenny Mellman as Thomas Edison (and cameos from the whole Belcher family). You'll throw popcorn in the air in celebration of this beautiful electric love.

Hollywood on Parade 8

Hollywood on Parade was a series of short subjects produced by Paramount Pictures between 1932 and 1934. They showcased the studio's stars both in newsreel-type footage (glimpses of Hollywood figures at premieres, parties, the races, etc.) and in new material such as sketches or musical numbers. The print quality of these isn't the greatest, but nevertheless there's some interesting stuff here. Also note that there's a numbering system associated with these shorts, but because some of the information I've found is conflicting and confusing, I just made up my own numbers to differentiate between them.

In this installment, we learn that Frankie Darro has achieved his life's greatest ambition -- to become a messenger boy for a day. His first job is to take a borrowed elephant named Annie back to the zoo. He then visits a steamship and delivers flowers to Virginia Cherrill from Cary Grant. While onboard Frankie and Cary also spot other famous figures, including Mary Boland and Claudette Colbert. Next he comes across Anita Stewart, who's having car trouble, and he offers to help her fix it. To cap things off, Frankie attends one of those Hollywood costume parties, where he dishonestly obtains autographs from all the movie stars for a younger boy who collects them. The stars include Gene Raymond, Richard Dix, Fay Wray, George Raft, Jean Harlow, Constance Cummings, Jeanette MacDonald, Charlie Chaplin and Paulette Goddard, Miriam Hopkins, and George Bancroft.

Cute Baby Elephant Taking a Bath

This cute baby elephant was taking a bath in the drinking water basin and playing at an elephant hospital in Thailand. It was an orphan, found in Cambodia. Most likely, its mother died in a landmine. A grown up elephant (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0gCnCbWJAY) which was healing from an injury at the hospital took it in as its own. Here's a little more of the same baby elephant: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AyxRJow5yCI


The Elephant: Life After Death

Elephants can live for 70 years. But what happens when one of these magnificent beasts dies in the wild? This stunning film turns normal wildlife documentaries on their head to find out what happens after death, as a five-tonne adult elephant is transformed into six million calories worth of fat, meat and guts, feeding a whole new cycle of life. The documentary gives scientists the chance to watch close up, day and night, as animals from leopards, hyenas and vultures to flies and beetles take just days to reduce the largest land animal on earth to bare bones.

Biologist Simon Watt leads a team of experts watching the events unfold in Tsavo West National Park in Kenya. They follow the action as never before, using remote cameras and night vision equipment under the supervision of animal behaviour expert Warren Samuels. The elephant, a young adult male, had to be put down by a vet after being mortally wounded by ivory poachers. But his remains will provide a feast for the local ecosystem and a new source of research. Raptor expert Simon Thomsett is keen to study the behaviour of local vultures, whose increasing timidity could mark a shift in the food chain. Meanwhile big cat expert Alayne Cotterill is treated to the incredibly rare sight of leopards feeding on the elephant and insect expert Dino Martins marvels as flies and maggots swarm across the body and attract other predators in their turn. The eye opening documentary is a unique insight into a natural spectacle that reveals how life has adapted to reap the bounty of death.

Elephant crashes the pool party

Best chicken fight partner ever. And at least he was polite enough to not knock over the beer. PS, this wasn't zoomed it, this was actual distance.
