Friday Vibes Video: Nirvana Covering Bowie, Unplugged

In honor of “National Day of Unplugging,” the apparently annual 24-hour period in which we’re all encouraged to disconnect and detox from our devices and internets [advice many of us don’t take], here is perhaps the greatest MTV Unplugged performances of all time: Nirvana covering David Bowie’s “The Man Who Sold the World.”

Have great weekends y’all! And tune in next week for pieces on the Girl Scouts, White House press briefings and a very timely, perhaps prescient “Etymological Adventure.”

Friday Vibes Video: “Mr. Wendal”

For this week’s Friday Vibes Video, here’s Arrested Development’s 1992 classic, “Mr. Wendal,” an aural reminder that homeless people are indeed people who should not be ignored, dismissed or disrespected. If you see a homeless person this weekend, take a moment to lend them a hand or, just as importantly, an ear.

Friday Vibes Video: Sweet Baboo

The world seems pretty chaotic these days, but Welsh musician Sweet Baboo’s track “Let’s Go Swimming Wild” reminds us that sometimes, if we’re really lucky, “Out of mess sometimes comes great success.” And if not, at least we always have cats, of which there are many in this video.

See you Monday y’all!
