Speaking of vibrant colors, you must check out “I Am Not an Artist” if you haven’t already.
I was recently introduced to Devour.com, a fantastic website that posts a well-chosen collection of videos found around the web. While I have spent many hours devouring the contents of the website, I continually come back to the first video I watched there, “Moments,” by Everynone – a beautiful short film that captures the little things that make up every day experience. I also recommend Everynone’s “Words.”
I absolutely love JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound‘s version of Wilco’s “I Am Trying To Break Your Heart.” The lyrics say “this is not a joke / so please stop smiling,” but all I can do is smile when I hear this. It is far too catchy!
I don’t have anything in particular to say except, “Watch this.”
I love pretty much everything Improv Everywhere does, but their latest project especially resonates with me because they eerily read my mind and made a video of my thoughts. Posing as NYC’s Department of Transportation, they set up a “Tourist Lane” (slow lane) and a “New Yorker Lane” (fast lane) on a sidewalk in Manhattan and directed pedestrians accordingly. As a fast-walking New Yorker, I am thrilled that they did this.
Professor Eduardo Alvarado is the most fascinating performer I’ve ever had the pleasure to see in New York City subway stations. The sight of him playing his keyboard with dolls dancing in front of him never fails to brighten my commute and my entire day. This man is a legend! Read more about the Professor in this article from the Village Voice.
