Family Podcast begins and much more

They Might Be Giants' Friday Night Family Podcast has officially begun with the release of the music video for "Seven Days of the Week (I Never Go to Work)" featuring the smartly dressed dog that appears on the cover of Here Come the 123s. The podcast also got a quick mention in USA Today's award winning Pop Candy blog.

A new newsletter has been sent out with more from Flansblog 9000 wishing everyone a happy new year. In addition to reminding us of their Family Podcast, the letter notifies us of a new challenge for their MySpace friends to "pen a limerick about the New Year" following the traditional "There once was a ____ from ____" formula. Last, but not least, they've extended the holiday bundles on their merchandise store until January 15. They've reiterated most of the contents of the letter in a new MySpace blog post.

Finally, I leave you with a blog posting from artistic TMBG fan and "With the Dark" video creator Hine Mizushima. In it she shows off some calligraphy skills and a cryptic message ("Bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bah bahhhhhh") saying we'll figure it out on February 5. Hmm... I'm willing to bet that this has something to do with her video for "The Secret Life of Six." I guess we'll find out in a month's time when Here Come the 123s is released on that date.
