This Room Is a Mess!

My favorite thing of the moment is this ridiculously fun song about cleaning your room:

(Performed by GOGO13, as seen on Yo Gabba Gabba!, by way of BoingBoing.)

At any point between 1987 and 1993 or so, this would have been my favorite song in the entire universe. Coincidentally, in 1987 my friend Neil and I published a zine called Kumquat Popsicle, which featured a drawing of a rudeboy by Neil's pal Alex Désert, who's doing the voice of the dad in that song. (I would scan that page of the zine, but it's in my brother's attic somewhere along with the rest of my old stuff.)

My pal Dave (who directed me to that clip in the first place) prepared an audio extract for your continued listening pleasure: Pick It Up.
