Philip Zimbardo & Perspectives on Time

In my high school AP Psychology and Sociology classes, I learned a lot about Dr. Philip Zimbardo's studies on the human mind and social interactions. One of the most famous might be his involvement in the prisoner/prison guard study. I came across this animated video by RSA Animate today that I wanted to share immediately. … Continue reading Philip Zimbardo & Perspectives on Time

Cinco de Who Cares?

Call me "el Grincha" but I couldn't care less about celebrating Cinco de Mayo. Don't get me wrong - I enjoy the occasional margarita. But why exactly should I care about Mexicans defeating the French in the battle of Puebla? Contrary to what many ignorant Corona drinkers may believe, Cinco de Mayo is not the … Continue reading Cinco de Who Cares?

OK Go, you make me smile

It seems that every time a new OK Go music video comes out, I fall in love all over again. It reminds me of that Mouse Trap board game. Except way cooler. I love that OK, Go em braces not only having a good time with their music videos, but also the power of viral … Continue reading OK Go, you make me smile

Mad Men according to Sesame Street

AMC's Mad Men is officially cultural phenomenon. Not because it won a ton of awards. Not because every blogger and Twitterer writes about them. Not even because Banana Republic launched a line of clothes inspired by the show. Mad Men has rocketed in the uber phenomenon status because cute little muppets are now teaching kids … Continue reading Mad Men according to Sesame Street

Check it out here and tell me if you understand what this movie is supposed to be about. And if … Continue reading Up in the Air Trailer starring George & St. Louis

Web Cam Music Video

The story? A Japanese band called Sour created this synronized web cam video. The result? Eye candy! Probably my favorite music video since the Ok Go treadmills in "Here We Go Again" 🙂 I love when bands come up with cool ways to showcase their music... and it has a viral component. I saw it … Continue reading Web Cam Music Video

St. Louisians have nothing better to do

...and neither do I. Normally nothing exciting happens here. That's why half the population (mostly female, I'd presume) has gone crazy over the temporary residency of George Clooney - in town for a couple months to shoot a film. Sorry George. You can't walk across the street without crazy people taking pictures. And even crazier … Continue reading St. Louisians have nothing better to do
