The view from my apartment gets crazier every year it seems. Today the start of the British Academy Film Awards' red carpet starts right in front of my door.

Does make doing groceries a bit trickier than normal and I can forget about ordering pizza.

Venice #6

Hear my song, Violetta
Hear my song beneath the Moon
Come to me in my gondola
Waiting on the old lagoon

Serenade across the water
Can you hear it soft and low
A tale of love and lovers
Singing long ago

Hear my song, in my gondola
Waiting on the old lagoon

Dancing Man Found

There are days where I fall head over heals in love with the Internet again and again-- This is one of them. In case you haven't been following events as they unfolded, this is roughly what happened:

A pretty heavy set man was dancing and enjoying the music, when a group of mean spirited kids took his picture while staring and laughing at him-- They proceeded to post the before (dancing happily) and after he noticed (totally crushed spirits) photos on 4chan.
A wonderful group of ladies noticed this when it was posted on imgurl, and decided to throw this man a huge dance party -- all 1700+ of them-- because everyone should be able to enjoy dancing without being worried about being shamed for who they are.

They send out their SOS to help identify and contact this man, and after 24 hours they managed to make contact and invite him -- and he accepted!

Now a huge dance party with hundreds of lovely women and tunes provided by Moby and Pharrell Williams who volunteered their time to help make this the bestest and most memorable party ever for this man, is well under way to happening as soon as he can fly over to LA.
The internet like everyone else has it's good and dark days-- this is definitely one of the very, very good ones!

“It is not the technology itself that profoundly impacts our lives, but the culture shaped and fostered by the technology”, said Chris Chabot in his opening speech at How to Web Conference 2014."

I absolutely loved speaking at the How to Web conference and meeting everyone there -- check out the video

Oxford University Museum of Natural History

Speculation has it that the first scholars were roaming around in Oxford as early as 1096. In the many centuries since the deep musings, groundbreaking research and endless streams of rebellious, (presumably, nay hopefully) intelligent young students coming up with new nefarious ways act out have imbued it's very essence.

So it shouldn't be surprising that when my mom came to visit, Oxford had it's own day dedicated to it, and ended up being one of her favorite things of the trip -- especially this wonderful museum.
