The madness that is CapeCast

Okay, it took a couple years, but I have become a fan of CapeCast, the video blog produced by Eric Williams at the Cape Cod Times (where I started my journalism career in 1980 after college).

Williams, who has a Ronco voice and a penchant for driving around the outer Cape with a video camera, wears a red and black checked Elmer Fudd coat and is fond of making up soundtracks for his digressions. The songs are usually credited to “Lovehandle”

Here he tours the impossibly ugly Forefather Monument in Plymouth and sings the “Giant Statue Song”

And here he takes us on a tour of a Quaking Bog.

This is an acquired taste.
