Breaking Bad/“Felina”

This fan-made tribute to the series is excellent. If you haven’t watched the entire series already, don’t click through.

Discontent/Modern Grail

22:30 15 Sep 2013

For whatever reason, I’m struggling with my writing schedule at the moment, and changes I’m trying to make haven’t worked so far. Thus, this week all I have is another video:

Either I’ll figure it out and proper articles will start appearing regularly again, or I’ll have to reconsider the schedule entirely.

Comedic Interlude

23:34 21 Jul 2013

No proper post this week. You might be interested in Jerry Seinfeld’s Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, which I just discovered and find oddly entertaining. Some is hit-and-miss, but for the most part it’s good.

I’m not sure why, but I tend to like hearing comedians talk about their work—sometimes I prefer listening to them in more relaxed situations than doing what’s generally considered comedy. I prefer the prospect of watching Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee to the prospect of watching episodes of Seinfeld that I haven’t seen, and I’m not sure why.

You might also like Talking Funny, a discussion about comedy featuring Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Louis CK, and Ricky Gervais.

I’ve only been away a week, but this really makes me miss San Francisco:

Kirby Ferguson’s “Everything is a Remix”, Part 4

21:55 19 Feb 2012. Updated: 23:44 02 Mar 2012

I mentioned this on Facebook earlier in the week, but it’s important enough to also write a post about.

Mirror, Mirror

I fear my occasional mirror dialogues may have a similar emotional arc to this video:

Avian Thievery

I’m pretty sure this is a piece of viral marketing, but even so, it’s too cool not to post:

Don’t Try This at Home

Clearly it’s not Dead Yet

This has been out a while, but is awesome and worth watching. Background: Newsweek listed Grand Rapids, Michigan, as one of America’s “top 10 dying cities”, and Grand Rapids made this in response:

One Intersection in New York

22:58 07 Jun 2011

This is a rather cool video:

I gotta say, cyclists in NYC seem to be significantly crazier than cyclists here. It’s probably necessary given New York traffic, but still.
