The Beach Boys Shred I Get Around
GOD DAMMIT, INTERNET.
YOU CAN’T DO THIS TO ME DURING THE WORK DAY.
In case you were wondering what my current favorite browser extension is… it’s Herp Derp YouTube Comments.
My brain is incapable of not looking down below after a video plays, so this makes me laugh every time that happens - saving me from the mind-numbing stupidity of YouTube commenters.
Astonishing helmet-cam footage from Felix Baumgartner’s jump.
Warning: this is definitely not for those who are prone to vertigo or dizziness.
I don’t think whoever posted that video has done so legally, so you’ll want to watch soon before it gets removed. I’d recommend you click through to YouTube to watch it in full HD.
Archie Bell & The Drells - Tighten Up (Live!)
I think we could all use a little pick-me-up today.
Now make it mellow!
(*thud* … A backup dancer kicks the mic stand on his first fancy spin. So great!)

Well, the videos have only gotten better as the obstacles have grown in complexity. He’s also made the smart move of trying to keep the videos as short as possible.
Take 90 seconds and watch this. It’s a refreshing (and short) distraction from your day.
Junip - Without You (by LeaheyHoo)
So so so so so great.
Well deserving as my #1 song of 2011.
Harvey Danger - Flagpole Sitta (Live on Letterman - 1998)
Nerds. Living the dream.
THIS IS THE GREATEST FUCKING THING I HAVE EVER SEEN. I HAVE TO LIE DOWN. MIND BLOWN.

They really just don’t make ‘em like they used to.
The Beach (by Subaru)
Holy crap I giggle and snort every time the hound destroys the sand castles.
The entire series of Subaru commercials is entirely entertaining.

I really need to get a piano back into my life.

Start it and I promise you won’t be able to look away. It’s less than 2 minutes long.
The best part of this video is seeing her smiling. She’s clearly having fun, and that’s what music is all about.
“David Bazan discusses guitars after living room show”
Remember four months ago when David Bazan played a show in my living room - otherwise known as one of the greatest nights of my life?
After the fans had left, he popped his head into my guitar room where he and I proceeded to have this nice 15+ minute conversation about guitars, which my friend Saby (thankfully) captured on video. The light is weak and the audio is quiet, but I’m glad this exists. It’s a great memory that I’ll carry through my life - talking shop with my favorite musician, in my house, with my guitars.
I spent 11 years (‘96-‘07) working full time at a golf course.
I have played the role of every person involved in this video.
- I’ve been run over (yes, it hurts).
- I’ve jumped out of a moving cart (yes, it’s fun; yes, it hurts).
- I’ve laughed hysterically at someone else losing control of a cart (yes, it’s funny).
- I’ve chased down a runaway cart and stopped it (yes, I’m Superman, and I can do anything).
- I’ve accidentally caused a cart to drive off on its own (yes, the small tree near the water stand behind the 16th green at Shadow Pines saved the day and still bears the scars to prove it.).
I didn’t realize it at the time, but those were 11 of the best years of my life. I may never again have a job that good.
Popcorn came to visit a year ago. Here’s 90 seconds of us playing fetch in my hallway.
“One Man. One Jar of Nutella.”
The title of the video pretty much says it all.

I might have a new hero.
