Tube Time: Multiple Sidosis
Is there any better invention than YouTube for distracting a kid while still broadening their horizons? I doubt it. When your young one gets tired of watching clips of kittens falling over, take some of my suggestions for great things to show them. Today's feature is a cult classic short film from 1966 by musician, inventor, and generally great guy Sid Laverents. It tells the story of a gentleman (played by Sid himself) who receives a multi-track tape recorder for Christmas and proceeds to record the greatest one-man rendition of "Nola" ever. At under ten minutes, it won't strain a little one's attention span if they can get past the somewhat slow beginning, and this tour de force of garage-level special effects still has modern filmmakers flabbergasted at how Sid did what he did.
