Last week I posted one of my all time favorite Sarah Silverman YouTube videos so it only seemed appropriate to follow up this week with Jimmy Kimmel’s response to her cheeky clip.  I hope you enjoy this 2009 video.

Have a great Saturday night.

If we are so connected why are we so lonely

Do you find that more of your time is spent online and less of your time is spent face-to-face conversations with friends or family?  This video is making the rounds, and I thought I’d share it.

I don’t feel lonely, I have a wonderful partner, strong family connections and a good group of friends who have known me for a long time and can call ‘bullshit’ when they see or hear it. However, I’m not immune to this feeling and I think many others feel this way too often.

Wow. I’ve been to my fair share of weddings but I’ve never seen anything quite like this.

Fenway Men’s Event is April 26

Fenway Men's EventAre you going to the Fenway Men’s Event this year?

Sergio and I will miss the party as we will be just a few blocks away attending the wedding of a couple we’ve been friends with for more than a decade.

Despite our absence this year, I wanted to be sure to remind any of you who may be dragging your feet to buy your tickets to this annual fundraiser that helps Fenway Health.  I’ve included my video from the 2013 Men’s Event to give you an idea of what is in store.  More information can be found online here.

It is hard for me to believe, but YouTube has been around for nearly a decade.  I loved this clip when Sarah Silverman teamed up with Matt Damon to tease her boyfriend, Jimmy Kimmel.

Have a great Saturday night.

Can you believe that YouTube has been around for nearly a decade?  Do you remember this video from 2006?  Seems appropriate for a Saturday night.  Do you have a favorite vintage ‘tube video?

If Beyonce’s “Drunk In Love” was released in the 1940′s

How cool is this video?  Scott Bradlee has created a vintage cover of Beyonce’s hit song, Drunk In Love with the help of Cristina Gatti who sings in front of a 5 piece band that replicates the big band sound that was so popular before rock & roll in the 1940s.

Take a listen and tell me what you think. I loved it.

It is hard for me to believe, but YouTube has been around for nearly a decade.  Do you remember Charlie and his cruel but cute brother? This video was posted back in 2007. 

Have a great Saturday night.

Support Boston’s late night T service

Two years ago Future Boston Alliance called for Bostonians to come together and bring about a cultural renaissance in the city.  One of the most common requests was to have the T run later.  Not only does lack of public service at night have a chilling effect on nightlife businesses but it also hurts a workforce that is increasingly operating 24-hours a day.

Future Boston plans on throwing events to encourage late night ridership and supporting the MBTA and they are looking to help raise $35,000 to support the Late Night Service and promote accessibility and access for residents.

If you can’t donate to their crowdfunding campaign, then watch this video and spread the word and encourage others to take advantage of the late night service.

Anything for love

When Gerdi McKenna was diagnosed with breast cancer her friends decided they would do a photo shoot and this is what happened.

When I first saw this Sam Tsui video that was posted in 2009 I was hooked.  I love Michael Jackson’s music and I thought this medley was brilliant. Do you remember this vintage ‘tube?

Have a great Saturday night.
