Here’s a video about girls going into engineering. Which is a great idea, IMHO. Thanks to my SIL Allie who spotted it on Slate.com. It’s an ad for something called “GoldieBlox.” Apparently the song was originally by the Beastie Boys? I’m sure it was huge, but, well, um, I don’t think I ever heard it before. It’s from the decade of music I missed because I was focused on (you guessed it!) engineering.
Well, dang. Looks like they changed this video so it can’t be linked to externally.
I love animals–especially cats–and I always wanted to be an animator. Still do. Simon Tofield of Simon’s Cat fame didn’t give up on these loves and watching this video about his life made me smile today.
I love how expressive his simple line drawings are! So glad he’s living his dream.
Found on Cute Overload, video by Cute Creatures Great and Small.
How many times did YOU watch? I’m on my 4th…
Dilbert (and Alice) made me smile today.
Know anyone like that? Yeah, me too.
The following hard-core science rock video was entirely made and sung by a 23 year old Canadian man named Tim Blais. Man, THIS is talent! I don’t understand much of it, which shows how far Physics has come since I was in college.
I got to this video through the NPR site.
I have never seen anything like the work of SuAmi on Etsy. Such detail, so tiny! So cute! Ahhhhhhh, I long for the days when my fingers were capable of miniature work.
A list of the 10 worst songs of the 1970′s (or possibly EVER) was published on Yahoo today. OMG he nailed it! These are all in the laughably bad earworm category except for one. I didn’t know the “Joey” one. I’d add “Wildfire” or maybe “Billy Don’t Be A Hero” in its place.
