Boing Boing launches “TV” program

Boing Boing launches “TV” program

Not exactly in the MAKE: Blog wheelhouse, but we want to take a moment to give a hearty shout-out to our pals over at Boing Boing. It’s been a big couple of weeks for them. First they launched the main site redesign and the new (and most awesome, IMNERHO) Boing Boing Gadgets. Now they’ve launched Boing Boing TV, 25 minutes a week (five minute segments every weekday) of Boing Boing “Talkies.” It’ll be co-hosted by Mark Frauenfelder (also MAKE’s Editor-in-Chief) and Xeni Jardin. Fellow BB editors Cory, David, and Joel will also chime in. The first episode includes visions of the future in turn of the century French lithographs and a robot playing Patsy Kline’s “Crazy” on a theramin. What’s not to love?

Congrats guys. And good luck in the videodrome.

    I must say that the soft focus and the intense backgrounds are a little weird for me. More like angelic, really, with halos and stuff. And Xeni has this shocking blonk hair that _really_ makes her look angelic. it’s bizarre. But I loved it.

    Pay close attention to what they’re doing in the new comments section. You’ll see a side of them that you might not have recognized.
