The Sweetest Sound


A friend of mine posted this video on Facebook the other day and I have watched it MANY times since then. They sound INCREDIBLE. I was pretty heartbroken to discover that they don't have a Spotify profile.

Cynics
“I have a very low regard for cynics. I think it's the beginning of dying.”
-Robert Redford

I wouldn't say I have a low regard for cynics, but it does make me pretty sad when someone gets to the point where they can't get excited about anything.

Rotating Faces

I am quite taken with Thomas Medicus' work that uses glass panes painted in a way that they show different faces on all four sides. Here's a video showing one-quarter rotation, but go see the rest of the faces.


See Dick Run

A woman named Claire goes for runs that will specifically look like dicks in her fitness-tracking app. Think whatever you will about someone drawing imaginary dicks everywhere she runs, let's all be inspired about the idea of making an everyday, and possibly torturous, activity a little more hilarious.

Octavi Serra

I love it when artists do little interventions in the public realm! The work of Octavi Serra is quite whimsical and fun, transforming public spaces into something a little more wild.


Succeeding Later in Life

I am always hungry for examples of people succeeding later in life. Take, for example, John Fenn, a scientist who, at the (by academic standards) dinosaur-age of 67 discovered/invented electrospray ionization - a breakthrough that changed his field. Read more about him and what factors lead to late-in-life success.
