Tour Google’s Latest Pop Up in NYC

Google is and always will be just a fascinating company to me. Some of the things they work on and the different teams that they house sometimes overwhelm me because not only is it just a lot in volume and size, but Google has their hands on everything – apps, phones, home, maps, etc. Pretty soon, sometimes I worry that we won’t really need anything else because Google will just replace everything and make it better. I didn’t know that they opened a pop up recently in Soho until I read about it on Doobybrain, but definitely thought it was interesting enough to share. If you get a chance to view it in real life, you should!

Beauty and the Beast Movie Trailer

As someone who grew up watching the classic over and over and over again as a child, it feels a little bit weird to see it as a remake! We really like Emma Watson though so we’re crossing our fingers that we’ll love this one just as much as the old.

Sesame Street: Mannequin Challenge

Tommy has been trying to convince me for the last week that the Mannequin Challenges are really cool. I’ve watched more than several by now, but this is probably my favorite so far and even then I’m not blown away by it. I just think there was so much work that went into that made it awesome plus – who doesn’t love Sesame Street?

Bill Maher Interviews President Obama

I am really going to miss President Obama.

And at the end of my Saturday night, watching this interview is very soothing. Herman Yung said exactly what I was feeling about this video:

Barack Obama has such a soothing voice. It’s like listening to radio. Have you tried to listen to Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump talk for an extended period of time? It’s impossible. Obama on the other hand — this is a guy I can probably listen to for a long time.

I feel like the election has stretched for a long time, but at the same time, it has also felt very fast. I haven’t always shared my political views on Yow Yow! and I still don’t think that it’s very necessary to do so today. I clearly have a view, right? But Yow Yow! has never leaned very heavily on anything regarding to politics. Yow Yow! has been through one election though when I was a senior in college and even then – we were pretty quiet. With regards to politics, I’ve done the bare minimum. I registered in California because my friend pretty much did it for me. I’ve watched the debates. I participate in viewing what other people have to say on Twitter and I retweet the things that are election-related that make me laugh. There are a lot of them!

I can’t really say why I’ve never had the passion for politics the way my own friends do. I actually admire them for it because they get very riled up and they very clearly have a stance about anything and everything and they can hold their own in any conversation. It’s pretty remarkable to watch. So we’ll be watching Tuesday of course because I don’t think there’s anything more important than that, but for now, we’re just going to enjoy this last bit of President Obama.

Dining at the American Girl Cafe

This is just an all-around fantastic video. I’ve been hoarding this since September to watch at a later date because a) I didn’t have the time immediately (that’s right, too busy I can’t spare 10 minutes) and b) I have always wanted to eat at the American Girl Cafe. It’s actually very close to me at the Stanford Shopping Center so I feel like I can pretty much go whenever I please. The only downside of this experience though is that I never owned an American Girl doll, myself. Too much $$$$ amirite?!

Whatever the case, I certainly had a fascination with it growing up and while I couldn’t own a doll myself… I was a subscriber of the American Girl magazine for several years. Michael and Molly are hilarious in this video which makes me want to watch more from them.

Philadelphia

I’m currently on this travel bug that I like to call a “work tour.” My first stop actually brought me to Philly! I remember coming out of the plane and just feeling a wave of humidity come over me, which didn’t stop for the next 3 days. It was my first time in the city and honestly, I wish I had had more time there! We had dinner out a couple of times and luckily stayed downtown so we got to explore whatever was in walking distance, but I had a feeling I could’ve loved it even more. Funny thing is, I used to think that I wanted to move to Philly after college for a dream job. It’s not like I haven’t thought about it since then, but I just don’t think it’s my dream job anymore. I’m really grateful that my work brought me there for the first time a few weeks ago and that I finally got to see it in real life. I can’t wait until I’m back there again.

Also, sharing this video because it’s relevant – thanks Herman for posting this on your blog! However, whenever I see videos of these made for Seattle, I’m always like yeah yeah whatever, but now I might have a greater sense of appreciation for them since I’m not a local, myself.

Apple’s New Campus is Extravagant

This aerial tour of Apple’s new campus in Cupertino is kind of crazy. I knew it was going to be massive, but I didn’t know just how large and dominating it would be. The video (shot on a drone) by Matthew Roberts shows the work and progress that has been done up until pretty much today, but there’s still a lot left to finish before employees begin to move into the space in early 2017. I’ve actually driven by parts of this every now and then since this is in my backyard, and sometimes it’s a little overwhelming. I realize I work in tech and some of these things should still feel normal to me, but after three years, some parts of are a lot to take in.

I actually can’t wait to see all the articles that will be on this space after its completion.

*for real, I almost just wrote “Best, Katie” instead of Source…because that’s how many emails I’ve been writing lately.

The Falling Man

We’re taking a break from the NYFW coverage for a second so that we can focus a little bit on remembering 9/11, which happens to be tomorrow. It’s hard to believe that it has already been 15 years. I can’t even believe that 15 years of my own life has gone by remembering this tragedy. I was 11 when it happened and I was having breakfast before school when I was watching the coverage alongside my dad. When I got to school – 6th grade – I didn’t want to miss what was happening. I remember being the only kid that raised my hand to ask if we could continue seeing the coverage on our TV in the classroom. My teacher made the right decision that day in saying “no” to me and I didn’t know that then, but I later learned afterwards.

“The Falling Man” is an iconic image from the day of the tragedy. Many died that day from an array of things, but something that has always stuck with me was those images of people jumping out of the tower. At what point did they feel like there was no other option than to just jump? What was going through their heads at that time? Of course, we’ll never get those answers, but I enjoyed listening to Richard Drew’s account of that day – the photographer being that image.

Song of the Day

It’s funny when you go into a song kind of thinking that you’re going to hate it, but then… you end up liking it. Is anyone else still confused about this Mac Miller / Ariana Grande relationship? How did this happen all of a sudden? I know I know, her first song was a collab with him, but I never saw this coming.

Most Entertaining Thing I’ve Watched All Day


There are no words. How these students are keeping a straight face through this entire thing is just beyond me. One teacher parodies Top 40 songs to introduce new rules and guidelines in her class and the video has gone viral.
