Back in September I mentioned here that They Might Be Giants had released "Here Comes Science" on DVD & CD. We'll, Dr. Desert Flower and I looked for it as a Christmas present at Target, and here in Western Phoenix, we were not able to find it. But at a Barns & Nobel one afternoon earlier this month, a helpful perky sales person asked "Can I help you?" and I grumpily said "you don't have TMBG's 'Here Comes Science'" ... and she walked over to the Children's Section, and Viola, there it was! A CD for the car, and a DVD with videos for every song. Very cool.
I got it for Christmas this morning =) ... Christopher and I just finished watching it, and laughing hilariously at many of the insightful and catchy tunes & videos.
If you have a child in your home under the age of 12, who has even the slightest interest in Science, you NEED to have this DVD. I will be playing it for my grandchildren someday, years from now. Even if you don't have a child in your home but you know a Scientist, enjoy facts, have a disdain for fundamentalist belief systems, or know a niece, nephew, neighbor, or other child who you'd like to have a positive effect on their development as a citizen, or a positive effect on their grade point average, This is worth the $19 (retail, B&N) or $12 at Amazon.
