I enjoyed the latke flipping workshop. I like that you incorporate themes from previous videos, love that the Greeks keep coming back. I also liked that we got to see more members of the group get their own little moments in this video/song.

And loved the Mayim Bialik bit. She's great. Did you get to talk to her at all? I was incredibly impressed/surprised when I found out that she actually has a PhD in real life in neuroscience, and the writers actually consult her on her own lines. Also, I understand that she's Jewish in real life, and perhaps interesting to this board, her husband used to be LDS.

Big Bang Theory is one of the very, very few shows where I actually explore the personal lives of actors.

Anyway, as usual, GREAT music, and thanks for sharing. [Smile]

Very nice. I especially liked the passing of the flame -- from left to right, just like we light.

From UCLA. Her undergrad (biochem, I think) was also at UCLA -- she was a couple years behind me in the chem classes, and I used to bump into her in the halls between classes regularly my last couple years.

It stalls out at about 200-300 views and then takes a while (12-24 hours, I think?) to catch up.

As of this post, it's managed 445 likes on 301 views. So I'm guessing that's a no.

Another Great Job!

BTW, The father in the segment at 1 minute reminds me of you. Is he by any chance an older brother?

It's now at 13,000+ and counting, which makes much more sense.

I believe the freeze the displayed view count at around 300 to ensure there is no funny business before they then allow it to continue updating with accurate numbers.

Awesome. As noted, the way you've established official little Maccabeat submemes (Greeks, astronaut suit, etc) adds a sense of tradition and familiarity to everything.

Also love your little pat on the back "Oh by the way, Obama gave us a shout-out" at the end (which you totally earned).

I saw you guys sing the national anthem at the Florida Panthers' game tonight and then watched your concert outside. Great job!

At the college where I work, the student council made a Chanukah party today. I went to eat jelly donuts and play dreidel (I lost).

Someone's iPod and dock/speakers were set up for music, and when I walked in "Candlelight" was playing. I made a joke about supporting the competition, and then objected that it wasn't the new one.

The next song up was "Miracle". [Big Grin]

Yup! CNN today. We had a bunch of articles again at HufPo, WashPo, Wall Street Journal, and and some others - but no actual tv appearances other than NY1.

You were at the Panther's game and you didn't come up to say hi?!?!?!

Wow, that should be almost enough to process their sample backlog. May there be many matches found!
