I’m so sad about the passing of Phillip Seymour Hoffman. I will always remember the perfection of him as Lester Bangs in Almost Famous delivering one of my all-time favorite quotes: “The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else when we’re uncool.” So true, watch here.

Was JC Penney’s social media team drunk at the Superbowl or just wearing mittens? You be the judge.

As a hearty New Englander I was in awe last week when a dusting of snow crippled Atlanta. Then I saw this map charting how much snow it takes to cancel school in the US. It’s pretty interesting, give it a look!
