Jimmy Eat World @ Rock City

Remember Jimmy Eat World? Well, they are playing tonight at Rock City. If you don't have tickets already and are interested in going, one of our guests arriving today has let us know that they have an extra ticket. It cost £20, but they'd be happy to sell for £15. So come see reception if you are interested. 

Robin Thicke on Jimmy Fallon

Whether you love or hate that Robin Thicke song 'Blurred Lines' (or, at the very least, are a little tired of hearing it)… it's pretty hard not to like the version they did on Jimmy Fallon.

More cowbell! 

This Is Water - David Foster Wallace

This video, stylishly put together by The Glossary, seems like a fitting post for a Monday morning. Here's a bit more on the video from the folks who made it:

In 2005, author David Foster Wallace was asked to give the commencement address to the 2005 graduating class of Kenyon College. However, the resulting speech didn’t become widely known until 3 years later, after his tragic death. It is, without a doubt, some of the best life advice we’ve ever come across, and perhaps the most simple and elegant explanation of the real value of education. We made this video, built around an abridged version of the original audio recording, with the hopes that the core message of the speech could reach a wider audience who might not have otherwise been interested.

If you're interested, you can read the full speech David gave here. And Happy Monday to you all… may your time spent in Tesco / LIDL / ALDI / Sainsbury / Waitrose / etc be slightly less stressful :)

Watch the video for more fun facts and then get back to your sloth like lounging about.
