There’s something painfully good about a store that sells everything you’ve ever wanted to own/make/use/sit on/carry. I would fill my home with these products only if I could. Enjoy some words by the founder himself, Brian Faherty. Schoolhouse Electric Co.
A trifecta of stunning videography/experiences from around the globe.
Hiromi is having the best time EVER.
Hiromi Uehara started learning piano at a very young age in Japan. We just got in her sheet music at the store, including this rendition of The Tom and Jerry Show theme.
For Castellers, “painfully good” is an understatement. These Catalonians have been playing human jenga for centuries, starting with the strongest of men at the base and the lightest — and oftentimes youngest — fearless at the top. Forget Running with the Bulls — the intricacy and teamwork required to pull this stunt off is mind blowing. I found myself gasping each time…well, you just watch and be awed for yourself.

Oh noes, 5 more minutes!
OH MY GOD PAINFULLYGOOD TOTALLY DIED.
I know. I’m sorry. I suck. As side projects will, this fell off for an indefinite period of time and if your recent visits have ended in disappointment I apologize for my lack of responsibility here. I hope that you can choose to forgive me and overlook the emptiness of the past few months.
To make up for it, I’m going to post every day this week as much as I can. Given that could mean anywhere between 5 posts a day to 5 posts total, I assure you that I make this top priority!
Are you ready for my first one? I found this video by Steve V. via A Cup of Jo and by the end of it I couldn’t decide what I wanted more: a kid or a marshmellow. You know what it’s like to be stuck between two really good choices and you can’t decide which is better? Kids really do do the darndest things.
Since there’s been a trend of music and music videos lately, here’s a music video my bandmate shared with me. We do a pretty hilarious cover of Bonnie Tyler’s “Total Eclipse of the Heart” already but this literal video parody cracked me up. The good ole scary 1980’s…
Seriously, what was going on in the 1980’s to create videos (and a lot of them) like this?
This Spanish song by group Labuat best thing I’ve seen in a while. And by far the best music video I’ve ever seen. The site takes a little while to load but trust me — be sure to move your mouse and experience the movement of the song. Oh, and please don’t laugh at my screen captures. The strokes move so fast and my hand eye coordination deteriorates under pressure!
