Taking Care of the Ones You Love

Thanks, Tammi, for showing me the saddest video I have ever seen...
Or at least, I thought it was the saddest... until I found out there was an entire series of them.

These are by Thai Life, a long-standing life insurance company in Thailand who has established themselves as being highly committed to quality and dedication. These videos don't so much tug at your heart strings as they do rip through them, just like you are going to do with a box of tissues after you watch these.

After watching these, I got up and hugged my parents. You'll probably need a hug too.

Where is that music coming from?

I want to be a part of a flash mob dance.

Don't Stop the Sandman

Rock Sugar was the most up and coming 80s heavy metal rock band until an unfortunate out-at-sea gig left them stranded with only the 80s pop music for listening pleasure/torment.

20 years later, they have finally been rescued... but it seems that you "can take metal band off the deserted island, apparently you can’t take 20 years of exposure to 80’s pop out of the metal band."*

Computer Engineer Barbie

No, it's definitely not a joke. In honor of her 125th career change, Mattel opened up voting to the masses for what her new careers in 2010 should be. Winners? News Anchor Barbie and Computer Engineer Barbie!

Reportedly comes with laptop, glasses, Bluetooth headset, and a laptop travel bag all in true geek chic flare. I personally love her jacket and its little circuit pattern.

The concept is really great and Mattel worked closely with the Society of Women Engineers and the National Academy of Engineering to develop her wardrobe and accessories. Still, she doesn't look like any computer engineers that I know. =P
