DON'T BLOW THIS FOR US, GENE

“Every time I heard ‘(Don’t Fear) The Reaper’ by Blue Öyster Cult, I would hear the faint cowbell in the background and wonder, ‘What’s THAT guy’s life like??’” — Will Ferrell

Twenty-one years ago today, "More Cowbell" aired on SNL.

A super complicated automatic solution that doesn’t work that well

But what if I’m yelling and I want to show the proper regard for your humanity by capitalizing the first letter of your name? Then I want the [first letter of your name] to be upper-er case, even more upper case than before. Similarly, I might want to be super casual and disregard your humanity with a lower-er case letter. So that’s what this video is about… Now I’m definitely not going to blow you away with the results here, but they’re kind of interesting - and I think some of the story of we get there is fun and interesting as well. But this will be an example of derp (sic) learning.

"I glanced back one more time, and that's when I noticed his legs moved"

Danny Stewart, 34, was late for dinner with his partner, Pete Mercurio, 32. The couple had met three years earlier through a friend in Pete's softball team. Later Danny had moved in with Pete and his flatmate, but on this summer evening he had been back to his sublet apartment in Harlem to pick up the post. As Danny was hurrying out of the station something caught his eye. "I noticed on the floor tucked up against the wall, what I thought was a baby doll," he says.

Jemaine Clement turned up on his bicycle for his interview with Moana Maniapoto, for this week’s Te Ao with Moana (19'11).
