Rumble In The Jungle

The Earth is speaking to us (and loudly) in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Nyamulagira, the busiest volcano in Africa, has become a regular tourist attraction over the past week.

Double Down: Good Ads

That being said, anyone should be able to appreciate a good advertisement now and again, especially one crafted with the help of his or her favorite directors, musicians or actors. Here are two exemplary cuts, both fresh and vintage:

Goodosphere Tells A Joke: Triumph & The 99%

Coco spent last week broadcasting his show from New York City. He brought Triumph the Insult Comic Dog along to work the crowds. The foul-mouthed, one-track minded canine found an especially captive one down at Zuccotti Park. The joke telling and prank-pulling quickly ensued…
