KITTEN in Hamster Ball

This is literally two minutes and forty-nine seconds of a kitten in a hamster ball. You're welcome.

...Also, Stuck in the Middle With You is playing. I recommend watching the video muted, but that's just me.

The First 20 Hours - How to Learn Anything: Josh Kaufman

Today's video is a little long, but absolutely worth the time. If you like TED Talks then you'll love it. If you hate TED Talks...well, then you probably won't love it and might possibly hate it. BUT! But there is a really fun part at the end where the speaker demonstrates the skill he learned using his method: Playing the ukulele. You could just skip ahead to that part, I guess, if you want (12:30), but I really think this matter is interesting and worth watching, even if you aren't a fan of the format.

...Is that really how ukulele is supposed to be pronounced? Because I don't like it. And also I've been saying it wrong. Which doesn't change the fact that I don't like it.

PS: according to the first three results on YouTube when you search, "how to pronounce Ukulele", I've been saying it correctly after all. Thanks, YouTube! Just one of the many reasons that I love the internet.

Ah, vlogbrothers. It is possible I might have written about liking their videos before once. Maybe. In this video, watch Hank Green flail his arms and make us feel better about our failures. And teach us a little history. Yay, learning!

Brief flash across the screen at 2:07 - TOTALLY WORTH STOPPING FOR.

It's OK to Do Stuff (feat. Jane Wiedlin of The Go-Go's)

Warning!!! This song is really catchy. You will probably still be singing it quietly to yourself three days from now while waiting in line at the grocery store. People will look at you funny. It'll be a little awkward. Seriously. 

Lets all go do stuff! Or not. Which ever. Your choice, really.
