    Hey, everybody! A few months ago, we Beige folk decided to shake things up and try something a little different. So we put together a sketch show that stops being a sketch show midway through and turns into a short play that, itself, is about a sketch show. We’re really proud of how it came out and happy to say that the whole thing is now online for you to check out. Enjoy!

    Beige Backstage: The Complete Show
    February 3rd, 2014

    This was one of the best Maude Night shows I’ve seen in a while. Sketch comedy meets Noises Off.

People love to talk about hard bop, and electric Miles, but everyone forgets about his Terminator period.

  4. Success is a label that the world confers on you, but mastery is an ever-onward ‘almost.’

    — 

    Sarah Lewis, author of the indispensable The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery, in conversation with Anna Deavere Smith at the New York Public Library. 

    For more of Lewis’s insights on the difference between success and mastery, read this.

    Another great quote:

    I wondered for two years after first speaking to Saunders about this idea of surrender. How do you lean into pain when you’re trying to forge ahead in one of the most inhospitable places on our planet? Why is that helpful? … Surrender, we both admitted, might be an imperfect word to describe it. The term is often synonymous with the white-flag retreat of loss in the context of battle. Yet when feelings of failure come with their own form of pain, empowerment through accepting it — surrender — and pivoting out of it can be more powerful than fighting. The kind of surrender that Saunders means is more akin to Nietzsche’s idea of amor fati, to love your fate. “The demon that you can swallow gives you its power, and the greater life’s pain, the greater life’s reply.”

    Bear Simulator is a real game being devolved by Farjay Studios. You’ll basically explore, catch fish, attack stuff in your way, sleep and level up. It is described as being FPB or First Person Bear. 

    OH MY GODDD

    ITS HAPPENING

    Sure this is cute and funny. But, when school maulings and teen hibernation are on the rise, will Farjay Studios acknowledge the impact their product has had on impressionable young gamers?

    From the THANK YOU, ROBOT CENTER HONORS Honoring THANK YOU, ROBOT for 7 YEARS of Existence show.

    This was tough to watch, but at least there’s a happy ending.

  7. "Micheline" from Benji by Sun Kil Moon.

    I can’t remember the last time I loved a singer-songwritery album this much. Each song is a perfectly crafted little gem of a short story.

  8. This video cuts off right before Mrs. Danzig walks in and Glenn’s all like, “Gaaaahd Moooom!’ and slams the door in a huff.

The most valuable chart…

I am thinking of printing this out onto cards and giving to improvisers when they say, “I can’t think of any other emotions beyond happy, sad or angry.”
