Samuel L. Jackson Answers Most Searched Questions

This is the 2nd post we’ve done that has included Samuel L. Jackson in the same week. You may be wondering… why? Well, it’s cause he has a new movie coming out, but if we’re being honest here – there hasn’t been enough Samuel L. Jackson on Yow Yow! and that just needs to change in general. He’s actually quite funny. I think we could use more content from him.

The Cast of Silicon Valley Explains What Real Startups Do

My friend Kurt and I are the only two people from our small hometown in Washington from our graduating class working in Silicon Valley. What that means is that a lot of people like to ask me what it’s like to work in it and they often go straight to the HBO show “Silicon Valley.”  – “It’s like that, right? It’s totally like that, I bet.” Umm… no. But I’ll let you think that if you want! I kind of enjoyed this video by Wired of the cast of Silicon Valley guessing what startups do based on their name and it’s pretty ridiculous and NSFW (language wise) so if you’re watching this at work, I hope you have headphones!

My New Favorite Instagram Account

Screen Shot 2015-09-05 at 9.50.07 AM

After being a week behind on blogging, I was introduced to a new Instagram account yesterday that I am completely enamored with. As most of you know, Instagram is something that I have been spending a little bit more time with in the last few months so when things like this happen, I get a little giddy. This Instagram with the handle “Socalitybarbie” is totally killing it. From the poses, to the captions, to the scenery, this Barbie emulates all of our favorite Instagram stars and pokes a little fun at it while doing so.

The account was created by an anonymous wedding photographed based out of the Pacific Northwest.

As the ingenious photographer told Wired, “Either your Instagram photos look just like her’s or you know at least one person who does.”

Yep, I can’t even hide that this has been my life lately.

How Crayola Crayons Are Made

Last weekend, someone showed me a series of “How Things Work” type videos. I probably watched about 6 of them and now this week, I’m posting my own which I find to be kind of funny. I actually was genuinely interested in how Crayola Crayons were made though and I find this to be quite fascinating. This video was done by Wired.
