Local: Enormous cow spotted in Como Park

I spotted this enormous cow this morning while tooling around the neighborhood. The pickup truck is for scale. [Flickr photo here.]

Video: The Sparhawks take TV’s Yo Gabba Gabba

LOCAL: I’ve mentioned this before, but I wrote about kiddie TV sensation Yo Gabba Gabba for the day job waaaay back in the day (when they were still beating down doors for a TV deal). The show’s since landed with Nick and become a blogger favorite thanks to its incorporation of adult-friendly indie musical acts.

Here’s Low’s “Family Tree,” complete with some super-round-eyed animated people.

The Take Away shows again, though this time in Seattle instead of Paris.

Song: “The Parade”

Also: An escalator.
