A friend sent me a link to this video, saying, “I thought you would love this.”

I do. Goddamn, do I ever. I think you might love it too.

    Okay, that made me tear up. Yes, YES 100 TIMES.

    And then I watched the video on they made on the teen brain and I wept for my 17 year old because, also, YES… HE IS AN ALIEN.

    Loved that! And if you don’t mind, I’m sharing on Facebook because I have friends that need to watch that!

    I’ve played it over and over many times since it came out. It’s great, even on subsequent viewings.

    Holy shit, I completely forgot about Ze Frank! I was addicted to his website about a decade ago. Thank you for this!

    Exactly! Right message at the right time. Thank you for that. I can be such a pencil sharpener at times.

    Going through some massive changes, and this is really something else. Thanks so much.

  14. Hannah on September 17th, 2012 11:30 pm

    I could watch that over and over and over.

  15. Samantha on September 18th, 2012 7:01 am

    Gah. Thank you.

    Also, am I the only one who wants to jump his damn bones?

  16. Randy on September 18th, 2012 8:07 am

    I don’t get it.

    Ooh, I love “Let me find and use metaphors to help me understand the world around me and give me the strength to get rid of them when they no longer work.”

    I know a lot of people who forget the second part.

  18. H on September 18th, 2012 2:24 pm

    Wow! Thanks!

    Fantastic. . . .only be satisfied by the cheese of accomplishment. . .

  20. Bridget on September 19th, 2012 2:47 pm

    I just want to watch this over and over. My favorite part is the cheese monster. I love that overwhelming feeling of creativity – except when it comes when I can’t do anything to act on it.
