Behind the Curve is a quasi-weekly feature of happy/interesting things I’ve found on the internet.
The printer at my office has been down for the last week and a half for a number of sad reasons. My whole department needs some printer grace.
I watched a lot of Mister Rogers with my mother when I was little. What would have been his 84th birthday was this past week and we could all use a bit more of his brand of kindness, neighborliness, and fierce belief in the value and dignity of life. Do watch the YouTube clips, perhaps with a tissue if you are prone to verklemptness, as I am.
Improv Anywhere, one of my favorite societies for spontaneous joy, recently visited TED. Their talk went as one might assume.
I really enjoy Kyle Eschen’s brand of dry, dry comedy. And bonus! Neil Patrick Harris!
I’m going to a contra dance tonight, and I am very excited. This is an unusual example of a dance in that it includes didgeridoo, the song “Dancing in the Streets,” and ends with crowd surfing. And man does it look fun. (Note: see here for a more “usual” dance)
Hope you have a great weekend!
