A Dance to the Music of Time – by Nicolas Poussin

The famous painting by Nicolas Poussin in the 1630s, which also inspired the novels of the same name, A Dance to the Music of Time.

I’m not a big fan of Renaissance painting, nor this one, but the them creates endless thoughts in my mind.

  • “the music of time”
  • “dancing around time”
  • “is time’s music a harp?”
  • “do we dance in circles around time?”
  • “is time like a chariot boldly pushing forward?”

A music video to learn the primary colors with OK Go and Sesame Street

Between performing a dance routine on a group of treadmills and setting up an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine, the rock band OK Go has produced some of the most imaginative and refreshingly fun music videos of the last few years. So when Sesame Workshop decided to make a new video explaining the primary colors to young children, we knew exactly who to ask.

Today we released the music video for the “3 Primary Colors Song,” in which Damian Kulash, Tim Nordwind, Dan Konopka and Andy Ross of the band OK Go help kids learn the colors red, blue and yellow and which colors they make when mixed together. We also released a game starring OK Go that allows kids to mix the colors however they want and make a painting of their own.
