If John F. Kennedy and Ronald Reagan could negotiate with the Soviet Union, then surely a strong and confident America can negotiate with less powerful adversaries today.

Lindy West's Love Actually Breakdown »

I love this movie even though it is shit and this is a hilarious recap. One point for team Jezebel’s sarcasm.

I can’t even begin to pick a favorite line. It’s all amazing.

"My parents had sent me to a small village outside of Paris because they thought it would be safer. But I guess there were hidden munition stocks out there, because the Americans bombed the village. They flew very high. The British always flew low— they had the fighters, but the Americans flew very high and dropped the bombs. They were bombs filled with air. I don’t know how to describe it. You were killed by the air. The neighbor was killed. I spent all night hiding in the barn."

THIS is one of the main reasons I find storytelling, human interest pieces, and projects like HONY or Storycorps are so important. Everyone is a part of history and there is so much information that will one day be lost if we don’t take the time to record it.

It’s official. I’ve only had a smart phone for two months and it’s already made me terrible at following directions.

If you haven’t seen Phoenix's drone-filmed video for “Entertainment” by La Blogothèque, yet, you really, really should. 

La blogothèque continues to outdo themselves. Love it.

The first atomic bomb used by mankind detonated right above this spot.

The anniversary of the Hiroshima atomic bomb dropping is today. Visiting the city last summer was a really strange experience and I’m so glad I went.
