Yesterday, a tweet brought my attention to the wonderful Instagram account biggypop, which consists solely of videos of legendary rocker Iggy Pop and his pet cockatoo, Biggy. The account launched earlier this year and so far has just 17 posts, all of which show Iggy and Biggy doing something adorable and strange together.
For example, here’s one of Iggy doing sit-ups with Biggy perched on his knee.
