OK, let’s get the bad one out of the road. Seems Occupy Davis and Gezi Park globally haven’t shown our brutality. The 60’s are back, and we’re not talking about go-go boots.
2: The Scottish Referendum.
I love em, but I want Scotland to be an independent nuclear power just as much as Texas, but for different reasons.
3: Klaus Biesenbach’s Instagram photo with Lady Gaga, Marina Abramovic, James Franco, and Courtney Love.
This is a hard one, from saying this might be Warhol 2.0 to the article stating that the art world generally tends to hurt media stars. Interesting moment.
4: The Grumpy Cat® movie grossing over $100M in the box office.
Although we might have thought Henri le Chat Noir might be more deserving, we have yet to see a pug movie. #pugmire.
5: Elon Musk open-sourcing all of Tesla Motors’ patents.
Want to make a kick-ass state of the art electric sports car? Here’s my plans, because I can’t make the things fast enough.
6: The Imitation Game.
Not just because a movie about Alan Turing is awesome, not only by outing oppression against one of the finest minds of the 20th Century, but showing that a geek won the war. Take that.
7: The World Cup.
Some amazing matches, and watching the US vs. Germany in Grant Park was just astounding.
8: Humanity landed a probe on a freakin’ comet and pretty much definitively found water on Mars.
Seems like space isn’t so boring after all.
9: Sir Patrick Stewart doing the ALS Challenge in the classiest way possible, and rockin’ that Santa hat.
Much better to have a sip of Glenmorangie and sign a check than have your man-bits suck up into you. Bravo.
10: That Pope – what a guy.
I mean, taking the Vatican to task for “Spiritual Alzhemer’s” and calling on all Catholics to fight global warming? Almost conversion material.
