This is possibly one of the coolest shows ever...

So I took today off to be a lazy bum, which means I watched way too much PBS. One of the WQED digital channels, the Create channel (13.2 for those in Pittsburgh with a digital air signal), is doing a marathon of the show Make.

This is the coolest show I've seen in a long time. It's basically half an hour of people talking about and demonstrating how they make a variety of gadgets and gizmos. It's really pretty neat--things one might never think of, like using an old VCR to make an automatic cat feeder, or building kinetic sculptures.

They have a website, and it's got archived videos of their shows. Check it out!
