B*Witched - C'est la vie - YouTube
"The music video for the song was directed by Alison Murray, who later also directed the UK video for 'Rollercoaster'. It begins with the four girls lying on the ground in a field of daisies on a sunny day. A dog is introduced into the clip next to one of the girls and the quartet then begin dancing and singing to a teenage boy in a treehouse. The girls then tie the boy to a tree and the dog chases toward him before he is magically bombarded with lipstick kiss marks all over his face. The boy is freed from the tree and the girls hose him with water and begin performing an Irish reel before lying back down in the field where they began."

NYC Mesh
Here’s a list of our reasons for building a community-owned mesh network:

Self configuring (simple!)
Emergency community networking (for next hurricane)
Freedom from the telecom oligopoly of Time Warner, Verizon, Comcast
A neutral network that does not block or discriminate content
No personal data collection
Public wifi access points
Decentralized, no single point of failure
Community building with highly localized websites
Close the digital divide
Potentially higher symmetrical bandwidth than provided by the oligopoly
Creating an infrastructure commons. The community owns the network.
Eventual self-sufficient network as alternative to internet

Jazz Icon Sonny Rollins on Giving Up Playing and His Legacy
love him a long time <3

"You know, I listen to the radio a lot and there’s a guy that comes on and says, 'Have a good day today and enjoy.' I hate the word 'enjoy.' Because to me life is not about enjoyment or, in other words, getting for yourself. That’s not why we’re here. The reason of life, to me, is all about giving. Giving is what gives me happiness. Making somebody else happy is the greatest thing you can do."

The “Nathan for You” Finale, My New Favorite Love Story | The New Yorker
"As Nathan and Bill’s quest unfolds, and the story about long-lost romance quickly descends into a series of bunko schemes, Bill’s feelings for Frances come into question. His is worse than a case of unrequited love. It’s nothing. The dream evaporates in some acrid vapor. But, almost as suddenly, a new dream is born."
...
"I’m starting to see my own life as an experiment in Nathan Fielder’s weird business curriculum. Years ago, for instance, when I was an out-of-work filmmaker, I got a job as a private investigator. In order to get information in one investigation, I had to pose as a filmmaker. I remember the internal confusion this caused, the internal monologue: 'But I am a filmmaker. But I’m also posing as one, because in this context no one can know that I am a filmmaker.' It’s not exactly that I was pretending to be something that I wasn’t. I was pretending to be something that I no longer was but would eventually be again. Still, a kind of uneasiness ensued."
