I'd heard rumors that some leading Bayesians had achieved rank in the Bardic Conspiracy. But I wasn't aware that every two years, some of the world's top statisticians hold a Bayesian Cabaret, full of songs, dances, and skits about Bayesian probability theory.

...no, really. Really. I think my favorite has got to be this one.

YouTube seems to be full of this stuff, including What A Bayesian World and We Didn't Start The Prior. Be sure to also check out some of the recordings and the Bayesian Songbook.

Eliezer's finished his sequences, and it's a new era for Less Wrong. Let's celebrate...Bayesian style!
