Two new-ish Woodkid videos

Since you all seemed to love debating the last Woodkid video on here, there two other videos that continue the story line. I’d appreciate it there was no accusations of skinhead propaganda this time.

Woodkid – Run Boy Run (Official Video HD) from WOODKID on Vimeo.

I LOVE YOU from WOODKID on Vimeo.

That super mega-pod of humpback whales at the end preceded the super mega-pod of dolphins spotted off San Diego today.

We Got This – Occupy’s Hurricane Sandy work

We Got This (Occupy Sandy) from Alex Mallis on Vimeo.

There’s been plenty of criticism about Occupy. I reported on it for almost a year and I totally get it. There were plenty of shortcomings. Occupy’s outreach for Hurricane Sandy victims, however, is not one of those shortcomings. As the video shows, they have set up a commander center to organize and get out goods. OccupySMS was created so those without power or internet but with a cell phone could reach out for help.

Occupy has two outposts good for new volunteers in Clinton Hill and Sunset Park.

Et Cetera Festival at Public Assembly


A bit late on this but Public Assembly is having a week of events as part of Et Cetera 2012. If “week-long version of a state-funded liberal arts college” at a bar/event space sounds like a good time, this is your festival.

Yours truly will be helping run the investigation panel by Her Girl Friday on Wednesday. Four lady journalists from across different platforms are going to reveal the secrets of getting the scoop. Doors at 7 with a boozy mixer to follow the hard hitting stuff.

Brokelyn has a nice write up on the rest of the events.

First Day of Classes at The Yard

The Yard, a new-ish work space on Nassau, starts off their class series tomorrow with “How to Not Suck Hiring at your Startup.” It’s very General Assembly of them.

More classes here, including the “Caddyshack to Zombieland: On The Meta-Caricaturization of Bill Murray” class.
