So we blogged last week about the new preview videos we're shooting and uploading to and, we have to admit, the conceptual part is pretty darn fun.

The latest vid is up now, previewing (ironically, perhaps) our annual Rewind: Year in Review. Let us know what you think, either by commenting here or emailing us at

We've worked ahead a bit to account for the holidays and deadlines and whatnot, and we shot a vid with ProMusica Chamber Orchestra executive director Janet Chen earlier this week. She was a good sport and, while we told her she didn't have to play it totally straight opposite The Beat goofing off (and we were goofing off), she was a terrific sport.

If there's a massive outcry from her adoring fans, maybe we'll post the blooper reel - i.e. the first take which she cut short in laughter.
