The Oceanic Preservation Society projected images of endangered species on the south side of the Empire State Building last night to raise awareness of their plight.
For those of you who couldn’t be there, here is a peek:

This was a crappy day.
I woke up to a vomiting dog. He’s feeling much better now, but it took a $400 vet visit to do the job.
My to-do list was repeatedly stymied by frustrating people and annoying road blocks.
And my evening dog walk, usually my stress reducer, was washed out — literally — by a cloud burst that left me and Rory sopping wet.
Yep, crappy was the word of the day. So this video really spoke to me.
…and puts a smile on my face! Great way to put this day to bed and start fresh tomorrow.

I’ve never gotten involved in the online debate about whether or not to vaccinate children. Since I don’t have kids, I figured I would stay out of that fight (although I vaccinate my dog, so we can probably guess where I might land).
I have to wonder, though, if this TV commercial is making the back-and-forth even more heated…
Not only vaccinate your kids but re-vaccinate in their teens? The anti-vax crowd must be foaming at the mouth. But the ad’s emotional argument is effective.
Once again — staying out of it.

Are you excited about Melissa McCarthy’s new action comedy Spy?
I am. The critics are. (It’s received a crazy fresh score — for a comedy, no less — on RottenTomatoes.com.)
I’ll bet you are, too.
But I feel we have to give some credit to Tom Cruise, who has starred in some of the big action films that McCarthy and director Paul Feig are lampooning. You may hate his personal life and his religion, but who cares? His films are epic.
Have you seen the trailer for Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation?

I watch a lot of awards shows, and often the celebrities are so jaded, it’s uncomfortable to watch them win. They come across arrogant or bored or even embarrassed to be there.
So it’s fun to watch someone win their first award — after decades in the business — and be joyful and sincere and probably win over an entire new demographic of fans in the process.
Good for you, Craig. I’ve always voted for you.

I got my first look at a Go Pro camera in an electronics store in the Cincinnati Airport over Halloween weekend. I had seen video footage from one before, but the clips they had on a loop at the store entrance sucked me right in.
So I completely understand why this squirrel felt the need to ‘grab and go.’
He’s a pretty good cameraman, yes?
