Look what bloomed at my house this week...
Andrew (aka Duke on Toontown) met another toon who makes these Toontown videos. The song is "Unwritten" by Natasha Bedingfield.
In the video you'll see two dogs, a cat and a mouse. The mouse is Duke/Andrew. He had a blast filming this with the cat, Midnight Magic. I think he's hoping to do more of these videos.
Here's "El Taco Rocko" (my favorite)
Here's "Thriller" (the kids' favorite)
I didn't realize that the piano (Andrew) and Bass Guitar kicked it off. So you can hear his piano right after the intro. It's setting the tempo with the drums. If you watch the video, you'll notice I quickly zip across the entire jazz band to focus on Andrew. Right before that dizzying ride, you'll hear him and the bass guitar start it off.
Bravo, Jazz Band!! They should all be proud of their accomplishments!
The Beer Can House, Houston
The owners/creators of the beer can house are now deceased. No, they did not die of liver problems. John & Mary Milkovisch owned this house. John worked as an upholsterer for the railroad and began by hand-cutting vinyl tiles to do the floor of their home. He couldn't afford the more expensive ceramic tile, but he made beautiful floors out of vinyl. Then he started adding marbles and things to concrete in the yard...because he didn't like to mow the grass. Eventually, he started putting aluminum siding on the bottom of their home. (Aluminum can siding, that is.) Eventually, he covered the whole house which saved them a great deal in utilities.
