Over the course of the year, curating the Short Film of the Day feature has given me a deep and affecting appreciation of the art form. Before, I hadn’t given much thought to the little bastards, but the truth is that they are incredibly versatile and representative of the boundaries that film can break.

They can feel classic or break out into the long, strange realm of experimentation.
When applying for a job, you have no choice but to do your best to outshine competition. Even before winning an interview, your qualifications (or in some instance, your character) are already judged by the resume you’ve submitted.
They say there are places in this world that anyone should see them at least once in life. Although we want each of you to go see them live, and we offer in the form of photos below. If I had to redo the path for real, the steps you would wear in Norway in Greece, Iceland, Netherlands, Croatia, China and Bora Bora. Whether it will attract the ocean or dream of green forests and endless, fascinating places of the world is waiting to delight. And who knows how many are still undiscovered?
This is all kinds of cool, and everything your mother told you not to do. Bryan Lewis Saunders is an artist from Washington D.C., not just any artist though.

by Mark Nichol Adjectives — descriptive words that modify nouns — often come under fire for their cluttering quality, but often it’s quality, not quantity, that is the issue. Plenty of tired adjectives are available to spoil a good sentence, but when you find just the right word for the job, enrichment ensues. Practice precision when you select words. Here’s a list of adjectives:
Warning : Clicking through to see the top 20 most watched TEDTalks is akin to finding a new show on Netflix. It will kill your day. If you must (and you really do) see the top 20 talks in TED six-year history, clear your calendar, shut off your email, go to the bathroom and open your mind. You’re about to learn something.

When things get out of control and you momentarily lose your emotional balance, there are any number of little things you can do to regain it.
Set in the Kingdom of Denmark, the play dramatizes the revenge Prince Hamlet exacts on his uncle Claudius for murdering the king, Claudius's brother and Prince Hamlet's father, and then succeeding to the throne and taking as his wife Gertrude, the old king's widow and Prince Hamlet's mother.

Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by.

What started out as a joke, somehow became my most popular project after I posted a fake Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream flavor featuring Ron Swanson on my personal blog. Since then, I've been commissioned by several websites to design faux Ice Creams including: Buzzfeed.com, NYmag.com, and Tauntr.com.
