I have begun my workday/week by reading about: the slaughter, underway even as I type, in Syria; the ongoing Israeli theft of Palestinian land, underway even as I type, in East Jerusalem; and rape.
I can’t bear it. I have actual paying work to do, which actually deals with Israel/Palestine and Jerusalem, and I’m not dealing with it because I’m too busy going from heartbroken to incensed and back again.
So, here: OK Go teamed up with veteran PBS stop-motion animator Al Jarnow to make a very delightful little clip about the primary colors for Sesame Street. It is, in a word, outstanding, and I can only hope that it will brighten your Monday as it did mine.
And, just to make your love of OK Go even more complete-er, here they are, in a SesameStreet.org game for you or your toddler’s enjoyment: OK Go Color (not that I’ve spent any of my workday playing it just now. Or anything).
