Why I am Mr. Sparkle??

The following is interesting and also a little bit creepy. I am not sure what to do with this information, but I understand how Homer Simpson must have felt when he discovered that his likeness was featured on a Japanese box of soap. As a result, I must make the following disclaimer: The whole blog thing was originally intended for family and friends, NOT weird guys in France who are fascinated with children's programs.

So, there is a guy in France, who according to the google translator, blogs about strange and interesting media aimed at kids.

His banner prominently features the following picture:

along side this picture:

You might recognize the first picture as Ian from this blog. As for the second picture, I am pretty sure it is some sort of young (and hungry) vampire girl. Where did he find a picture of Ian? Who is this vampire girl?

I don't have all the answers, but this is what he says in a post about Yo Gabba Gabba, a new children's television show: (google translated)

Attention attention, a new phenomenon arty-hipster direct-children is emerging. Still new,
Yo Gabba Gabba is in full promotional countryside on You Tube. The buzz is supposed being followed by a diffusion on the US TVs, the U.K., and Italieen autumn 2007.The production line team is presented in the form of a “collective of young artists, musicians and craftsmen who take root in the popular culture and of which the mission and to create positive programs for the young people like the old men.

OK - and then he links the video of Ian dancing to the Yo Gabba Gabba intro that you might remember from a previous post on our blog. Creepy French guy comments on Ian's video:

And already of the promising reactions, among which, this baby who shows us how the conscience of the child is already nourished of structuralism and can perfectly recognize the various key moments like the televisual episode. At 0:29, here is what purest satisfaction resembles.


Easily accessible pictures and information serves the purpose of providing quick updates to family and friends. Of course, it is just as readily available that guy. Anyways, something to think about.

Check it out for yourself here

PS. In case you are wondering, Ian IS "nourished of structuralism", mostly because we've really stressed that. I still don't know who the vampire girl is - Amy says she doesn't look like a young Romanian vampire.

That is a little creepy. Tell that French guy to go and not fight in a war or something. Happy Birthday Ian! Hopefully we can meet someday.

But, when your kid is that cute, you gotta expect abnormal occurances occasionally.
