I told myself I wouldn’t make any more pet videos. But when I saw those two faces squished together like that, I couldn’t resist.
****R.I.P. Clementine - Dec 15, 2009 - Jan 28, 2013 Passed away in her sleep at the tender age of 4. Not a day will go by without us remembering how much joy she brought our lives.

In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education.
We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested.
Read the full speech here:

After becoming disillusioned working on Wall Street, Firtle, 28, opened the Brooklyn-based craft distillery in 2012 with the lofty goal of bringing distilling back to her hometown of New York City. The Noble Experiment’s first product — Owney’s — a 100% molasses-based, white rum is based on the first spirit distilled in the United States. Firtle’s philosophy and technique are inspired by tradition, but her individual taste influenced by modern methods make her rum very unique.
After meeting at UCB a few years ago, comedians Abbi Jacobson & Ilana Glazer created Broad City, a web series that humorously depicts every day life in NYC. In my humble opinion, it’s one of the best shows out there. So good, in fact, Amy Poehler decided to produce it into a half-hour scripted TV series (and it got picked up by Comedy Central, should air sometime next year).
This is one of their later episodes (staring Poehler & Kristin Schaal) which is of much higher quality film-wise than their earlier episodes. But I have to say ever since episode 1 I had a gut feeling these two ladies were going to be huge on the comedy scene.
Here’s a link to their YouTube channel - definitely worth checking out!
