evolution of style + dance

how cute is this westfield stratford ad?  it combines a bunch of things i like: fashion, dance, couples (i guess?), and videography.

it chronicles 100 years of east london style from the 1910’s until present times.

when i saw this, it totally reminded me of the evolution of dance video (and i wasn’t alone):

and while we’re on the subject of dance…how amazing is david elsewhere?  an oldie but goodie, i can’t help but smile when i watch this:

he’s one of the silhouettes in my favorite ipod ad (break dancing + daft punk? yes, please!):

it’s a shame he never got to perform with michael jackson; they were collaborating for “this is it”…

dancing is one of the (many) things i really wish i was good at.  funny how this turned from a fashion post to dance.

have a great labor day weekend!  i’ll be spending it churning out 8 essays.

conan o’brien says to transfer all mba’s to white collar prison

on june 12th, conan o’brien gave the commencement speech at dartmouth college.  in his speech, he went over “the conan doctrine”.  the first rule?  “all bachelor degrees will be upgraded to master’s degrees. all master’s degrees will be upgraded to phd’s. and all mba students will be immediately transferred to a white collar prison.”

another highlight from his speech: “before i begin, i must point out that behind me sits a highly admired president of the united states and decorated war hero while i, a cable television talk show host, has been chosen to stand here and impart wisdom. i pray i never witness a more damning example of what is wrong with america today.”

see how i’m trying to keep things more entertaining?
