While you were out, 8-20-2010

A new feature! Every week I’m going to post a bunch of links collected during the week on Friday. Yes.

http://www.kanyeuniversecity.com/blog/2010/08/the-great-debaters-by-jon-malinowski/ – Gorgeous photos, and delightful fashion to boot. I stared at these for like an hour. I still can’t decide whether I’d rather be in those clothes or behind the camera.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XAOwo6uuhok – This hip-hop/electronica music video is bursting with so much contemporary imagery that I don’t even care that it is in French.

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/15/world/asia/15japan.html -They went to bring him a certificate naming him the oldest man in Tokyo, only to discover that he had been dead for 30 years.

http://www.bnet.com/blog/penelope-trunk/why-an-mba-is-a-waste-of-time-and-money/152 – I have often said that the world needs more doctors and scientists and fewer lawyers and MBAs. Seriously, don’t get an MBA.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GgFE5OQbt_g – Another awesome music video, this one via the lovely Ivana Morgan. Ivana needs to get her site working so I can link to it.
http://bababrinkman.bandcamp.com/album/the-rap-guide-to-human-nature – Okay, an ex-girlfriend of mine sent me this link in one of those tantalizingly ambiguous “thinking of you” messages. Ugh, right? But the album is really good. I’m a big fan of educational hip-hop, and this shit is straight science. I’m going to write about it in a music column soon, but that won’t be up for weeks probably, so cop it now.
