Thursday Top 5



Joss Whedon on Humanism
The popular writer and director of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “Firefly” fame recently received the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award in Cultural Humanism, previously awarded to people such as writer Salman Rushdie and Greg Graffin of the punk band Bad Religion. The above five-minute snippet comes from his speech which was broadcast on the Cambridge Forum, but sadly their web presence is ridiculously antiquated (they offer cassettes of their programs, so that should give you an idea). A good article on the event (with pictures) is available from the Harvard Humanist(s): Joss Whedon Slays Sold-Out Crowd.



What’s in your box of Kleenex?
Greenpeace offers a paper towel, napkin, tissue, and toilet paper buying guide that rates brands and gives data on post-consumer recycled content, overall recycled content, and whether chlorine is used to bleach the pulp. View it online, or download and print. They also have an iPhone app so you can look brands up while shopping.



Yuto Miyazawa plays “Crazy Train” on Ellen
Okay, so maybe his pronunciation of the English lyrics is not so impressive, but his guitar playing is pretty good for an nine-year old. Watch for the surprise ending. [5:59 min]



Jake and Amir
Okay, I admit it: I can’t help laughing at Jake and Amir. One of my favorite internet shows.



Little Red Riding Hood reinterpreted
In a very cool infographic style.

Are you fookin' serious? Use a goddamn bandana and you don't have to freak out about all that shit!

Okay, not for toilet paper. Though I did read this crazy blog entry a while ago about people trying to give up t.p. 'Course, those same people were talking about trying to get rid of their refrigerators and puzzling over how to keep their tomatoes from spoiling in December. Dolts.
