There’s this guy I know down in LA. He’s doing the work. Here’s proof:
There’s only two kinds of people in the world, people who are fired up by “this” and people who are fired up by “that.” Examples below.
Whatever it takes, if it’s dying your hair (soul?) black and off-tuning “powerlo—-aaad!” or going “meow meow meow smile smile colors COKE!”, do what you’ve got to do to get fired up! (more…)
I can’t tell you how fired up I am for this… I’ve read all the books and have loved it so much. Hope it puts that fire under the author’s arse to finish the last book! Game of Thrones Exclusive Preview
Will Farrell Outtakes… Wayyyy too many good giggles and squirts not to post. Enjoy!\
Hi! Thanks for visiting Ice to the Brim! Since you’re here, perhaps you care to press play below and allow me to formally welcome you to this site?
Very interesting John Cleese video on creativity. Here’s some notes:
Viktor Frankl wrote Man’s Search For Meaning, an incredible book. Simply incredible (more on the book below). Here is a video of Frankl speaking at a conference in Toronto in 1972. It’s simple and humble, but when he made his point it was a paradigm shift for me.
Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl is among the most influential works of psychiatric literature since Freud. The book begins with a lengthy, austere, and deeply moving personal essay about Frankl’s imprisonment in Auschwitz and other concentration camps for five years, and his struggle during this time to find reasons to live. The second part of the book, called “Logotherapy in a Nutshell,”describes the psychotherapeutic method that Frankl pioneered as a result of his experiences in the concentration camps. Freud believed that sexual instincts and urges were the driving force of humanity’s life; Frankl, by contrast, believes that man’s deepest desire is to search for meaning and purpose. Frankl’s logotherapy, therefore, is much more compatible with Western religions than Freudian psychotherapy. This is a fascinating, sophisticated, and very human book. At times, Frankl’s personal and professional discourses merge into a style of tremendous power. “Our generation is realistic, for we have come to know man as he really is,”Frankl writes. “After all, man is that being who invented the gas chambers of Auschwitz; however, he is also that being who entered those gas chambers upright, with the Lord’s Prayer or the Shema Yisrael on his lips.”
Gary V is normally a bit too much for me. But I like this video a lot. You do too. Be honest.
Theres a bunch of cool stuff Sendhil Mullainathan talks about in the video below… I only want to highlight one point he makes. It’s about BMW wanting to advertise the safety of their cars.
Car safety adverts are normally about car chasis getting slammed into walls in slow motion, or, in other words, the “you’ll survive wrecks in our cars” message. BMW opted for the different “our cars keep you out of accidents” message. It’s not necessarily brilliant, just a different angle on the topic.
This? this shit here? this shit matters. (you may want to fast forward to 4:45, but the intro sets up some respect for the speaker)

Really fascinating character this Yves Behar. I love this kind of horizontal-thinking problem solving with design. I also like his ideas about a company or team being “design driven.”Or, watch this video at TED.com
