Things that have made me cry (this week)

Caine’s Arcade

I usually hate flashmobs. I even hate the idea of them. I think they’re usually selfish things, usually at someone’s expense (c.f. Improv Everywhere’s “Best Gig Ever”). But this was genuinely sweet. And I love that random strangers have chipped in over $40,000 to put this kid through college.

An Invocation for Beginnings

I’m so glad Ze Frank is back, because the world needs more disarmingly sincere people who rarely blink. The sentiment at 1:09 is just beautiful.

Fiona’s Rescue

WAAAAH.
