    Possibly offensive/NSFW, if you/your boss doesn’t have a sense of humor when it comes to simulated car humping.

  5. A/V Fridays – Woodwalk

    SD > LA Woodwalk from The Paradigm Project on Vimeo.

    On a quest to raise awareness for The Paradigm Project’s goal of placing five million clean burning stoves in developing countries by 2020, volunteers walked from San Diego to Los Angeles with sixty pound bundles of wood on their backs.

    Clean burning stoves relieve the burden of wood collection, eliminate respiratory problems that come from cooking over a wood fire every day, free up time for family members to earn income for their families, and reduce problems associated with deforestation.

    WOODWALK was just screened at Sundance.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
