Swedish "Genital Song" goes viral, makes it past You Tube censors

Today I woke up to a dancing cartoon penis and vagina singing to me how awesome and elegant genitals are (even on old ladies). The song and accompanying video were written for a Swedish Children's program. Though the video is "graphic" it has so far made it past the you tube censors. Well here is one way to celebrate freedom of expression through cartoons in the wake of the Charlie Hebdo attacks in Paris... Thanks to my friend Mindy Weisberger for originally sharing this video.

Free Community College in the US?

On Thursday January 8th President Obama announced a proposal to make the first two years of community college free for anyone who is willing to work for it. This plan is marvelous for so many reasons. It will serve to further diversify the workforce, make for a more informed electorate, and drive the economy. Here's hoping for the follow-through.

The Dream is Alive

This film was originally made for IMAX in 1985. Overall I'd call this Phenomenal. Cinematography alone just blows me away.
