1. Washed Out’s “All I know” is a portal through which I found a treasure trove of music videos produced by Urban Outfitters.  Taste the rainbow here.

  7. GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO!!

     
  8. A Short Film of the musical persuasion.  Starring the contemplations we often have about musical influences and real life impact, except taken from the form of people who actually have the power to persuade.  Brandon Flowers with Dawes, Father John Misty and The Local Natives all covering the one, the only, Mr. Johnny Cash.  Beautiful translations of legendary songs.  

     
     

  9. "a very unique cat – a French Canadian Hinayana Buddhist Beat Catholic savant."

    "When we’re alone he says ‘Your mother wrote and said your cat is dead.’ Ordinarily the death of a cat means little to most men, a lot to fewer men, but to me, and that cat, it was exactly and no lie and sincerely like the death of my little brother — I loved Tyke with all my heart, he was my baby who as a kitten just slept in the palm of my hand and with his little head hanging down, or just purring for hours, just as long as I held him that way, walking or sitting — He was like a floppy fur wrap around my wrist, I just twist him around my wrist or drape him and he just purred and purred and even when he got big I still held him that way, I could even hold that big cat in both hands with my arms outstretched right over my head and he’d just purr, he had complete confidence in me — and when I’d left New York to come to my retreat in the woods I’d carefully kissed him and instructed him to wait for me ‘Attends pour mue kitigingoo’ — But my mother said in the letter he had died the NIGHT AFTER I LEFT.”

    -Jack Kerouac

     
  10. Sasha Keable, 

    Please come perform for us in the US :).

    -The Leisha

     
     
  11. I don’t know how I haven’t seen every one of these Between The Two Ferns.  Everytime I watch one I laugh to the point where I forbid myself from watching them at my school library or at culturally quiet places because I will burst out laughing, and I will cause a scene, it’s just a fact of my life.  

    Mr. Gal doesn’t dissapoint in this one either.  From his mistaking ‘Belieber’ with ‘Beaner’ to his WOOOO after whipping his belt at - not on - the “not-child” Justin Bieber to the little surprise at the end, I can’t hold back when watching him.

     
     
  12. I very badly wish that Dazed Digital video shorts were embeddable.  Factory Fifteen’s Futureworlds: #1 Chupan Chupai, part of the Dazed Visionaries, is a super sick short and I WANT TO STREAM IT ON MY TUMBLR! But maybe, they are all the smarter because of that fact.  They don’t want wide eyed tumblr curators like me ripping off their material.  Either way, I urge you to watch it because I think it’s magic. 

    Watch it here and be impressed and watch other “Visionaries” here

     

  13. "I gave up teaching graduate students. I escaped into the undergraduate classroom - in other words, slipped happily underground in order to talk to people who, like me, need to read great literature just as much as they need to eat"
    — Frank Lentricchia 

    Found via Why Literature? By Cristina Vischer Bruns
     

  14. "Let’s kiss in the clouds upside down
    And make a smile of the world’s somber frown"
    — The Illustrious words of “Me”
     

  15. Wait, this is playing at the closing ceremony?! STOKEED!
