This blog has been, for me, a seventeen-year exploration of other people's ideas.  If you've been here long, you'll know that I use short quotes and long excerpts from other people's writings to make the points I write about.  Like most people, I am not an "original thinker."  I try to expose myself to as much as I can, and weigh it against my experience and reason to determine truth.  Then I put it down in pixels to help me get my head around it. Over these past seventeen years (hell, ove...

Carl Reiner & Mel Brooks’ Timeless Comedy Sketch: The 2000-Year-Old-Man

I read the obits. If I’m not in it I’ll have breakfast. —Carl Reiner Up until this week week, it seemed as if Mel Brooks and Carl Reiner could keep their 2000-Year-Old Man routine going forever. The premise was simple—Reiner as the serious minded announcer, interviewing Brooks as an elder with a Middle European Yiddish accent about some of the historic moments, trends, and celebrities he’d had personal contact with over the years. The idea originated with Reiner, who, as a young staff wr...

Record number of LAUSD students learn online while school’s out for summer

A record 100,000 students are enrolled in Los Angeles Unified’s digital summer school, which started Monday, June 29, with enrichment classes designed in partnership with celebrity filmmakers, musicians and sports stars. This is the first time summer school has been made available to all students in the LAUSD, and Superintendent Austin Beutner said that’s because the district believes it may help mitigate learning loss due to the pandemic that forced schools to close back in March and transition...

December 2019 Media Recommendations + 2019 Wrapup

This month’s new media recommendations are all podcasts; although, there is some other media types to check out in my 2019 wrapup. Dr. Lehmiller has made the rounds discussing his survey about sexual fantasies, but his spot on NPR’s What We Do was one of the best interviews about it, no doubt in part to the skilled host. Another NPR podcast, Planet Money, ventured into the billion-dollar sperm bank industry. Check out this episode of Sex Out Loud featuring Tina Horn, who discusses making comics ...

Teamwork in the Conservatory: In the Game of Music, We Can All Win

My yoga teacher once said something that really stuck with me: What helps “we” also helps “me.” Time after time, my experiences have verified this to be true. The occasions in which I have grown the most have all involved collaborating with my peers and coworkers. I strongly believe that no collective growth can occur without there first being individual growth, but that when an individual grows, so does the group. This is also a key component of the San Francisco Conservatory of Music’s (SFCM) ...

Dramatic Footage of San Francisco Right Before & After the Massively Devastating Earthquake of 1906

Disasters both natural and man-made—or in the case of climate change, some measure of both—can reduce built environments to ash and rubble with little warning. In cases like the Lisbon earthquake, the Great Fire of London, or the bombing of Dresden, cities have been completely rebuilt. In others, like the utterly destroyed Pompeii, they lay in ruins forever, or like Chernobyl, become irradiated ghost towns. Such events stand as singular moments in history, like ruptures in time, shaking ...

4 Ways to Ace Finals Week Without Burning Out

This finals week, remember to take care of yourself first. Tim Gouw This past week, I loaded myself up on premium espresso beverages, made the library my second home, and proceeded to ferociously tap away at my keyboard until I turned in my thesis two hours past the technical deadline. Because I barely stopped to eat, let alone sleep, my immune system was compromised and I ended up lying in bed for two days with a fever and a sore throat that, to this day, still pains me every time I swallow.N...

Malcolm Gladwell Explains Where His Ideas Come From

For many readers out there, the publication of a new Malcolm Gladwell article ranks as an event demanding immediate attention. They'll read whatever he writes, not just because they enjoy his style but because they trust his instinct for finding fascinating subjects, from coffee to health care, college rankings to dog training, shopping malls to school shootings. How did he develop that instinct? He reveals aspects of his idea-generating process in the seventeen-minute interview with New...

Sebastian Junger Never Owned a Smartphone (and Why This Matters)

Junger’s Radical Simplicity Last November, journalist Sebastian Junger appeared on Joe Rogan’s podcast.

Wooden Legacy roundup: Washington State edges Saint Joe’s on late 3-pointer

FULLERTON — Malachi Flynn is Washington State’s only returning starter, so naturally he wanted the ball with the game on the line. Flynn hit a go-ahead 3-pointer with five seconds remaining, lifting Washington State to a 75-71 victory over Saint Joseph’s after the Cougars rallied from a 20-point first-half deficit in the opening round of the Wooden Legacy on Thursday at Cal State Fullerton. Flynn didn’t have a good game, with just nine points, two assists, one turnover and zero rebounds. Coach E...

Enter the The Cornell Hip Hop Archive: A Vast Digital Collection of Hip Hop Photos, Posters & More

The music and the culture of hip-hop are inseparable from the Bronx, Queens, Harlem, and Brooklyn, NY. And now that the form is a global culture that exists in online spaces as much as it does where people meet and shake hands, its documentary history may be more valuable than ever. Hip-Hop began, unquestionably, as a regional phenomenon, and its formal qualities always bear the traces of its matrix, a confluence of African-American, Caribbean, and Latin American socio-cultural experiences and ...

Extended Stay America Visit #2 Even Better Than Expected

89 Essential Songs from The Summer of Love: A 50th Anniversary Playlist

Image by Bryan Costales, via Wikimedia Commons The Summer of Love was not just a season of great music and the zenith of the flower child, but the culmination of a movement that started back on a chillier Bay Area day, on January 14, 1967. That was the month of the Human Be-In, and what must have looked like a full on invasion of the counterculture into Golden Gate Park. The backdrop of this outpouring of good vibrations was anything but loving: Vietnam, inner city riots, Civil Rights, and a hu...

Watch the Earliest Known Footage of the Jimi Hendrix Experience (February, 1967)

Note: If the video plays and you don't hear sound, look for the volume control in the lower right hand corner of the video. Within months of moving to London in autumn of 1966, Jimi Hendrix found himself a band, recorded a single, got himself a longterm girlfriend, and proceeded to take the UK by storm. His gigs were essential viewing by rock’s then-royalty--the Who, the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, Cream, all made sure they caught the American wonder. By the end of the year his first single “...

Brandspeak: Learn to Learn

The following is a guest post by SAP senior director Joe Pantigoso. In a cartoon strip by Bud Blake, the character Punkinhead tells his brother Tiger that he taught their dog how to whistle. Challenged as to why the dog isn’t whistling, Punkinhead replies: “I said I taught him. I didn’t say he learned it.” This is the trick, isn’t it? To actually learn and internalize something so you can successfully use it. In a Harvard Business Review article entitled “Learning to Learn” the author argued t...

The American Food Paradox: Growing Obese and Going Hungry

One third of the U.S. population is obese, even as 50 million Americans often struggle to find enough to eat. And all that in a country where 40 percent of the food made and purchased each year is thrown away, and in which food needs are expected to more than double over the next few decades. Professor Jose Alvarez discusses how the former president of Trader Joe’s is boiling these difficult problems down into one elegant solution in a pilot store in Dorchester, Massachusetts, and blazing a trai...

Watch Orson Welles’ First Ever Film, Directed at Age 19

“It’s nothing at all. Absolutely nothing. It was a joke. I wanted to make a parody of Jean Cocteau’s first film. That’s all. We shot it in two hours, for fun, one Sunday afternoon. It has no sort of meaning.”–Orson Welles The Hearts of Age may have indeed been a lark when it was shot in 1934, but given that one of the two teenagers went on to direct Citizen Kane seven years later, no doubt it’s worth a second look. Like all things Welles, his 19-year-old life was much more fantastic than...
