Ice bucket videos

brian may
Ha.  Did I think I was going to clean and exercise today?  None of the above!  I have done some writing, which is lovely.  And I have spent way more time than planned in watching the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge videos of Benedict Cumberbatch, Patrick Stewart, and Brian May.  Patrick Stewart's is so arch and majestic.  Now there is a man who never disappoints me.  Benedict worked so hard on his that I awarded him honorary Korean status.  Oh, I was in one too, with the Three Patch Podcast.  Geeklet and the Director were more than happy to help.  akemi42 brought her supreme vidding expertise to the effort, dixiebell12 suggested the soundtrack, mrsscience and avawatson braved the cold, and unknownsister provided the cutest possible ending.



I was amused when someone pointed out that Rupert Graves was wearing kid-crafted loom bracelet jewelry in his ice bucket video.  I so know that life.  Of course he had his kids throw the water on him.

I spent actual time wondering whether my life were better, worse, or the same after seeing a 67-year-old astrophysicist take his shirt off.  Conclusion:  exactly the same.  :-)  oracne said his stripping technique was precisely the way she imagined it would be.

Awesome!

Amanda Palmer's was a beautiful reminder of what it's all about.

I'm also tickled that George W. Bush did it though, as usual, he doesn't seem to quite understand...

Great on you! Happy icy birthday! And thanks for the Cumberbund link; I'd been meaning to watch him take the challenge.
