In honor of Thanksgiving, here’s how to say “Thank You” in 30 languages. Happy Thanksgiving!!!
Eva and I had so much fun working on this. We’re amazed by how many people shot videos and sent in videos from around the world last night. We’re still getting videos sent in, which we’ll use for next year. I say it in Arabic, Jessie in Hebrew, and Aidan closes out the video. Fun!
If you aim to create anything cute (besides babies) in your lifetime, you should probably just quit now, because I’m not sure how it could get any more adorable than this video from Friends With You. It’s almost too much to handle.

(It’s actually two neighborhoods, sometimes collectively termed as Midtown.) It’s proof positive that art and business can exist harmoniously and that art, especially public art, can change a community.
HERE COMES THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a docuseries exploring the power of public art and innovation in communities, is basing it’s pilot season around the Arts District of Wynwood. Watch the video above for a great look into how one of Wynwood’s public art spaces came to be.
Ok, so I’ve been SUPER busy, totally neglecting this blog. I didn’t have a post planned this week at all, but this morning I got an e-mail from Darcy Prendergast of Oh Wow Yeah with a new light painting video. Now, you all know how much I love light painting, so I couldn’t resist sharing it.
You can also watch their other collaboration, Lucky.
If you haven’t seen it yet, you need to drop what you’re doing and watch this. No, your boss can’t get pissed at you. It’s physically and emotionally impossible for anyone to be upset within 100 ft of any screen playing this video.
