Can’t remember the last time I watched a music video and instantly had to replay it once it was over. You’ve probably seen this by now, but if you haven’t, correct that immediately!

Stephen Colbert visits Google.  Colbert is always worth watching (even when not in-character), as is Eric Schmidt’s awkward approach to interviewing.

Triumph the Insult Comic Dog visits the set of Judd Apatow’s This Is 40.  I can’t tell if John Lithgow knows what’s going on or not.

Paul F. Tompkins interviews Aziz Ansari.

How Hot Dogs Are Made →

I can’t decide if this fascinating, or if I’ll never eat another hot dog.

Tom Scharpling’s new video for the lead single off of Ben Gibbard’s solo record.

Let Teddy Win →

One of my favorite ongoing stories while I lived in the Washington, DC area: the ongoing plight of Teddy Roosevelt in the Washington Nationals Presidents Race.  Click the link above to view an E:60 piece on Teddy and company.  What fascinates me about the Presidents Race is how indicative it is of the Nationals’ own team philosophy of delayed gratification.  Whether it’s Teddy’s races, Strasburg’s arm, or Bryce Harper being plunked by a pitch, the Nationals seem not to take delight in any success now, focusing instead on what success might look like in 5-10 years.

I can’t tell you how many “Teddy’s going to win!” false alarms there have been over the years.  I was even in the ballpark for a few of them.  I’ll be interested to see when they do let him win — if they ever.
