I find an odd sense of comfort when I see the Game of Thrones cast behaving like real human beings who genuinely like each other and don’t want to decapitate/spear/gut/shoot/maul anyone. 
I’m glad everyone is still friends after last night’s episode. Are they going to Coachella or something? Tywin Lannister is mad rocking that ascot over the t-shirt look. Watch out hipsters!

I found this mesmerizing.  The narrative so effectively unfolds on a computer desktop because we understand the nuances of today’s modern digital age. Certain parts hit eerily close to home, almost in an uncomfortable, you can only laugh at it, kind of way. It’s 17 minutes long, but is mindful of it’s ADD audience with fast cuts and frenetic pace. Watch please.

If You Haven’t Yet, You Need To See This 17-Minute Film Set Entirely On A Teen’s Computer Screen

Noah, a short film that debuted at the Toronto International FIlm Festival, illustrates the flitting attention span and lack of true connection in digital culture more clearly than anything else in recent memory. (Warning: NSFW)

"I have nothing now but praise for my life. I’m not unhappy. I cry a lot because I miss people. They die and I can’t stop them. They leave me and I love them more. … What I dread is the isolation. … There are so many beautiful things in the world which I will have to leave when I die, but I’m ready, I’m ready, I’m ready."

Maurice Sendak 

Heart wrenching quote from one of the most captivating interviews Maurice Sendak did before he died. Happy 50th Anniversary to Where the Wild Things Are. (via NPR Fresh Air)

Malala Yousafzai at 16, is the youngest nominee for the Nobel Peace Prize. If you haven’t seen her on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart, watch it right away.

Agreed. Jon Stewart’s humility was not only genuine but palpable during his interview with this remarkable 16 year old woman. Her courage and her achievements at such a young age are personally convicting. She’s changing the world. When I was 16, I was changing hairstyles.

Just as I was about to write Miley Cyrus off for her silly wardrobe choices (a wrecking ball does not equal pants), her weird appropriation of the “we’re #1” foam finger and her penchant for imitating a panting canine, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots go and do this. God, this is so good.

WHY JIMMY, WHY?!

Waxing nostalgic on a Saturday afternoon: Remember to Breathe by Dashboard ConfessionalThis version is so poignantly emo that when I first heard it, I literally burst into tears. 

A toast to the soundtrack of my very emo adolescence - while I may no longer spiral as effortlessly into a cloud of pitiful sadness at the thought of every relationship “what if” or body image self doubt, your tunes aptly articulated the perplexities of my formative youth. So, thanks. Here’s looking at you: Dashboard Confessional, Jimmy Eat World, Taking Back Sunday, Saves the Day, Waking Ashland, Cute is What We Aim For….and the original Broadway cast of RENT
