Re-culturing: High Five! and Gender Scramble

Posted in Culture, Love, Media, Vids with tags , , , , , , on February 13, 2009 by 99ppp

The troupe of Improv Everywhere decide to shine a little sunshine on a morning commute and revive the high five to lighten some spirits. It is interesting to note some of the people on the other side of the escalator wishing to participate (more details and photos on the scene here) . Very similar to the “Free Hugs Campaign”, it goes to show how a little human connection can go a long way. Enjoy!

An excellent poster by those romantic rebels at Crimethinc, who also inspired one of my favourite vids , that challenges us to rethink our ideas about gender roles often propagated by mass culture.

Ricky Gervais, a portly fella himself, cuts through the bullshit and gives his thoughts on obesity. He’s also been critical of surgical weight-loss methods.

A brilliant animated meditation on overpopulation by Nina Paley. A little appetizer while I prepare a longer post on that topic to the post “A Case Against Having Any or More Children”. Here it is:

I Guess You’ll Do [Fliggo]

Posted in Culture, Media, Relationships, Vids with tags , , , , , , on March 26, 2008 by 99ppp

In the kindred spirit of two prior posts here (The Myth of Male Power, A Case Against Marriage), I found a humourous animated clip derived from Mike Polk’s text about settling with a partner, rather than finding passion with one. Unfortunately, I couldn’t embed it here. Here’s the link, and please ignore the unfortunate title there “The Sad Truth about Relationships”, since there is no reason why it needs to be that way (see Join the Resistance: Fall in Love).
