Came across this post from The Dish by Andrew Sullivan in my Google Reader earlier today.

From the creators, Mixtape Club:

“When F5 commissioned us to do a short film conveying happiness, we thought what better way to express our happiness than to distill the essence of our craft, to serve up a creamy shot of artistic espresso? So with this film, we’ve gone back to the basics, the simplest of inanimate objects, and transformed them into a tapestry of playful, choreographed dance for your enjoyment. The musical accompaniment was composed as part of the filmmaking process by the lovely gentlemen of Huma Huma.”

To me, there is something truly awesome hiding in the simplicity of this video. It is so basic – featuring seemingly mundane items that we have around us – while at the same time being very complex.

What do you think? Does it convey happiness, or something else?

Not many people know this, but I’m a huge fan of the Back to the Future trilogy.  I own the special edition DVD of the three movies and I’ve been known to just hunker down and watch them all – including with the bonus pop-up trivia feature.  I’ll often quote it or throw out a random reference to something from the movie.  I’m always happy when I find a kindred spirit who not only gets the reference but also enjoys the movies as much as me.

I’m still waiting for my Hoverboard and Mr. Fusion.  If someone could get on that, I’d appreciate it.

Don’t judge – we all have guilty pleasures.

Earlier today, my friend Emily unknowingly sent me to the blog Cake Wrecks, not knowing I would stumble across this most excellent cake:

I’m totally debating if I should have something like this for my 30th birthday. 

Or perhaps this one:

I also came across this on my friend Adam’s Twitter:

14 Things from Back to the Future II That Actually Came True, and 5 That Haven’t… Yet

I really hope they are wrong about the whole Cubs winning the World Series thing.  I mean – it has to happen eventually, right?!

I think in honor of this post, I’m going to watch BTTF2 tonight. Or tomorrow, since Glee is on tonight. Decisions, decisions.
