A Father’s Day Video Thing

So I wrote this video for SkitGuys.com and we’re selling it for this upcoming Father’s Day. Watch it and then spend a billion dollars buying them. NOTE: if you don’t have a billion dollars to spend, feel free to just watch it, but it’s like why don’t you have more billions of dollars?

Fairy Tales, Myths and Kristen Stewart

It’s a new Popcast episode and in this one, Jamie and I discuss the idea of turning Fairy Tales into modern content, what other stories or myths are ripe for revisiting and whether or not Kristen Stewart and Zac Efron are the same people. But we also talk about some other stuff.

Stuff like…

+ Those terrible, awful transcendently awkward DirecTV puppet commericals…

+ This excellent memoir: Struck by Genius: How a Brain Injury Made Me a Mathematical Marvel

+ John Oliver’s rant on Net Neutrality

+ Celebrity Commencement Speeches

A Conversation About All Things Music

Jamie and I just released a new episode of The Popcast  where we talk about all things music.

CLICK TO LISTEN

Stuff like…

+ Who will own the summer music scene?

+ What are the all-time favorite summer songs?

+ Why do we listen to the specific music we listen to?

+ If Miley Cyrus never existed who would have gone crude and insane in her place?

Personally, one of my all-time favorite summer songs is “Steal My Sunshine” by Len, but that’s me. What’s yours?
