Today's Mighty Oak

Alright, we’re halfway through NaNoWriMo, so a quick break for me to write here.

Comparing a decade of music with DJ Earworm:

Here’s my thought. Michael Bloomberg is going to enter the race just so he can more easily spend money on campaign ads or get around Facebook ad guidelines or something, but he’ll use his fortune to support whoever the Dem candidate is. But who knows if I’ll be right.

I’ve seen this done before with bagpipes, and I love that this trend continues, this time with saxophones!

The trailer for the Star Wars IX:

USA Hockey is adding an indefinite suspension penalty for players using racist or homophobic language.

Trojan is running an awesome campaign about comprehensive sex ed and combating slut-shaming of all forms.

And finally, the trailer for the new season of The Crown:

Couple quick items for you today, check it out:

I’ve seen this before, but never with this much of a demo.  We knew it was only a matter of time:

This is an NYT article about a cool service connecting kids to useful accurate sex ed (text messaging, of course).  However, here’s the really scary sentence:

Sex education is a thorny subject for most school systems; only 13 states specify that the medical components of the programs must be accurate.

I don’t ever know how to react to that.  Rage?  Disbelief?  Do I cry or laugh, I just freaking don’t know.

And speaking of craziness and sex, did you know that Louie Vuitton (I remember in my advertising class, being one of two guys, and we both had to ask who that was), makes condoms.  And they cost $68 each.

Banksy has done a sculpture, this time, to remember the victims of the abuse of the Catholic church.  It’s an awesome piece, entitled Cardinal Sin.

Also across the pond, the Louvre is going to be offering a program where people can use their 3DS’s to take tours.  Pretty awesome!

Graph time:

And just for fun, forgot to add this graphic:


Remember, voting is every American’s right.  There shouldn’t be roadblocks to it (take for instance, the Iowa Republican caucuses, which have no ID requirements like those proposed around the country, although apparently in Virginia, you have to sign an oath saying you’ll vote Republican in the general election).

That’s it for this update, but I’ll be back with more soon!
