Thanks, Julia B!

I recently began a small, personal project for my own betterment. Exercise, a change of diet, a new charitable cause? No, I began listening to David Bowie’s oeuvre from 1967-1983 (with a couple of stops in the ’90s and a jump to 2013). I don’t just mean starting at side 1, track 1 and letting the entire discography play in the background of my daily activities — nay, I want to go down the rabbit hole. Every album is getting at least a week of rotation. We all know Bowie’s hits, but the more you hear of the man’s work the more you realize the singles cut barely skin deep and are far from the “best” his albums have to offer.
I bring this up only because that journey begins with with an album and a song called Space Oddity.
Cmdr. Chris Hadfield (social media expert, astronaut) is on a far more exciting journey, and as it came to a close this week, he made a video for us. If his voice and the song itself weren’t moving enough, the shots of our beautiful planet from the ISS and the stark, mechanical marvel of the weightless environment bring it to a whole new level. Excuse me while I wipe this lone, masculine tear from the corner of my eye.
Thank you, Cmdr. Hadfield for the work you’re doing.
Thank you for bringing humour and artistry to your job.
Thank you for reminding everyone of how important and exciting space travel still is.
And most importantly, thanks for proving to the entire world that Canadians are simply the coolest.

Simon Panrucker has nieces.
They got drums.
They weren’t very good.
Simon Panrucker can edit video.
He is very good.
He made them sound like seasoned musicians.
The result is very good:

It feels like you’ve won the lottery when you get to watch a video on YouTube sans suffering through an advertisement of some sort, so it’s extra bonkers to actually go to the site looking for an ad. Unless that ad is “Shift It”, the The official commercial for Arlen’s Transmission in Burbank, CA.

Here at Goodosphere we were lucky enough to attend the very visually exciting How To Destroy Angels show, and we managed to take some pictures. These are our favourites.

California’s sea lions have been having a tough go of it lately, so we thought we’d spend this Friday celebrating some of the better news the species has had lately: one of their own has learned how to keep a beat with the help of some crack trainers at the University of California in Santa Cruz. The video was posted suspiciously close to April 1, 2013, but we’re going to go ahead and believe everything we’re seeing — for the Good of the species and the Good of the Friday.

While we may be more familiar with a Jay-Z who Watches The Throne with Kanye or Collides into Courses with Linkin Park (that was a joke, please don’t be familiar with that), we may have overlooked one of Jay’s earlier collaborations. Namely, the album he put out with Robert Goulet, Murder In The Make-Believe Ballroom. Though perhaps you simply forgot about it because all you could think about was JAY-Z GETTING HIGH WITH HIS FRIENDS ON LIVE NATIONAL TELEVISION AND NO ONE CARING. Oh, Mr. Knowles. Keep it up.

It’s well known that we at Goodosphere love Carly Rae Jepsen’s hit Call Me Maybe, but were its themes and criticisms of materialism, wealth, and capitalism as religion a little too subtle? Just in case they went over your head, the wonderful internets created Call Me A Hole. Enjoy.
