This one's from Scott Perlman

Oh man. My dad describes this as,A chicks-gotta-dig-it-but-makes-guys-puke video.”  

But all I have to say is: Josh + Donna! Shane + Molly! Adama + Starbuck!? Luke & Lorelai!

So basically: my dad is totally right. ~LP

Heyyyyyy girl. So, Ryan Gosling was even wooing the ladies back in 1991 with adorable renditions of “When a Man Loves a Woman” and some serious dance moves with his sister at a talent show. I mean, really. How cute are they?! Love, Nik

Kudos to this fab 5th grader for giving a great speech about gay marriage, even if his principal said it was “inappropriate” and wouldn’t allow him to give it in front of his whole school. Good work, little man. Love, Nik

I just watched this little gem as I munched my salad during a surprise lunch break (sometimes a kiddo cancelling is the only way I can eat!). So calming… I would love to learn how to throw pottery! ~LP

Happy Music Monday! Have you ladies heard this cover of "Skinny Love" by Birdy? (Sidenote: this British musician is all of… 16. Just in case that makes you feel incredibly old like it makes me, hah!) 

This young pianist/singer has also covered some songs by The Xx ("Shelter") and Phoenix ("1901") if you want to check ‘em out. Love, Nik

Les Misérables is one of my favorite musicals and there’s been talk of going to see it again this summer. (Yay!) I’m also looking forward to the new movie adaptation. Curious to see how Anne Hathaway does as Cosette… what do you ladies think? Love, Nik

My talented friend Caleb Hawley never disappoints! Check out his new tune, “Let a Little Love In,” which he performed in NYC earlier this month. Love, Nik

SNL’s 100th Digital Short. Have you ladies seen this? The celebratory digital short packs a punch with tons of cameos and the requisite raunch. I especially love Samberg, JT, Natalie and Micheal Bolton, hah! Love, Nik

Wherein Jon Hamm answers questions from teen girls. So charming, that one. ~LP

This “Everything’s Amazing & Nobodys Happy" Louis CK interview on Conan is an oldie but a goodie. It came up in conversation again lately and I just had to share in case you haven’t seen it. Love, Nik

My news feed(s) have been full of reviews of Norah Jones’s new album “Little Broken Hearts.” Have you ladies listened to any of it yet? Here’s her first single, ‘Happy Pills.’ Thoughts? Love, Nik

Did you guys catch the 2012 White House Correspondents’ Dinner? Gotta love politicos being candid. Love, Nik

A great little excerpt from John Cleese’s lecture on Creativity. Brainpickings has a more thorough recap (and add’l video), but in summary Cleese outlines the “5 factors that you can arrange to make your lives more effective:”

  1. Space (“You can’t become playful, and therefore creative, if you’re under your usual pressures.”)
  2. Time (“It’s not enough to create space; you have to create your space for a specific period of time.”)
  3. Time (“Giving your mind as long as possible to come up with something original,” and learning to tolerate the discomfort of pondering time and indecision.)
  4. Confidence (“Nothing will stop you being creative so effectively as the fear of making a mistake.”)
  5. Humor (“The main evolutionary significance of humor is that it gets us from the closed mode to the open mode quicker than anything else.”)

Worth watching! Love, Nik

Pretty sure I’m preaching to the choir here, but as a card carrying member of the HRC… Ron Swanson supports gay marraige and you should, too. Are these two not ADORABLE?! ~LP

Is this nice? No. Is it awesome? Sorta! Lilo’s face over 25 years. Make sure your sound is on. :) ~LP
