Saturday night video: Boston does Brittany

Last week a new reader asked me to post a photo of Jesse Jackman so I obliged with a screenshot from the above video that I had previously post last fall.  Re-posting that image reminded me about the video so I thought I’d share it as well.  This was done last year by a number of guys who play in Boston’s gay football league.  Have a great Saturday.

25 Years ago today the Berlin Wall came down

For Millenials it must seem strange to think of Germany as two separate nations with its historic capital, Berlin, divided by barbed wire and troops patrolling with orders to shoot to kill if anyone from East Berlin tried to escape.  However, that was the reality until twenty-five years ago when the Berlin wall came down; the symbolic repercussions of that event cannot be stressed strongly enough.

With all the challenges in the world today whether it pertains to nuclear proliferation, war and or outbreaks that threaten public health, it is important to recognize how much better the world has become too.   A big part of that world becoming a better place is the fall of Communist Europe.

Saturday night video: Sex Ed

I first post this video about a year ago but had forgotten about it until someone had reminded me about it earlier this week so I thought I’d share it again.

This YouTube video of Julia Sweeney sharing her discussion about the birds and the bees with her eight-year-old daughter is absolutely hilarious.  This clip is completely safe for work; I actually teared up at one point from laughing so hard.

Saturday night video: Time Warp

Halloween was just last night and Boston is still embracing the holiday so this seems like an appropriate video to share this evening. I like the subtitles in Italian, but mostly I just like that there wasn’t an annoying commercial that played before I watched it so I posted this version.
