The 20 Best Cities for 20-Somethings

 Considering that it is mostly young folks reading this blog (and that one is also writing it), this seemed like an interesting titbit to share with you all. I have to agree with Seattle, as it is still my favorite place that I have lived, and even Portland made the list (which is basically a small Seattle) so there's plenty of love going out to the Pacific Northwest. In fact, it seemed that most of these places are towards the west coast. Hmm, perhaps this whole 'life in Florida' thing should change.

Most of the cities seemed to be rated on a night-life, similar age groups, and active lifestyles but when I looked over the list there weren't any I disagreed with (although New York seems like a pretty expensive option for 20-somethings) so it deemed a post on the Solar Surfer. Click the beautiful picture of downtown Seattle to check out the article for yourself!

Latest Photo from Dumb and Dumber To

I refuse to see any way that this movie can go wrong and this picture proves that I'm right. It has been a while since the last picture was posted and yesterday their Twitter page did not disappoint my hopes for progress. No matter how old these guys get, they will still be hilarious as Harry and Lloyd. Ride on, brothers.

HitRECord TV

The creative genius, Mr. Joseph Gordon-Levitt is at it again. Episode 1 of his HitRECord TV came out a couple of weeks ago and it has taken me this long to actually watch it but do not let that discourage you from giving it a look right now. It's a sort of variety show made up of the various collaborations from his website, and it is definitely done with style. Way back when, I posted about this website in hopes that I could spread the love of what these guys are trying to show everyone (And to prove in hipster fashion that I liked it before it was cool). In a world where people have the mentality of "this is mine, so don't steal it" I find it refreshing to see that this site serves a more collaborative goal. hitRECord strives to take something an artist has done and twist it in a way that makes it unique and new. Many of the creations on the site have hundreds of different collaborators and through this I feel we can make fascinating connections with the people around us.

In this particular episode, the theme was the number 1. For first times, first collaborations, and so fittingly, first episodes. I have to say my favorite video these guys created was the song, "You're not the Only One," which of course they save for last. Here's hoping that HitRECord TV has a long and vibrant run as a series.

Etsy Schweetness

I think it might be a good idea to make this section a reoccurring part of the blog. Etsy has some of the most fascinating handicrafts on the internet. My favorite of the week is this little beauty. All the awesomeness of Harry Potter wrapped up in one puuurty little bracelet. And for only six bucks! Not including the shipping from China, however. I'm ordering one for myself and I suggest all those interested do the same. Here's the link: Etsy

Frozen and Arrested Development. What a Magical combo.

A. Frozen is phenomenal. Anyone who is losing faith in the future of Disney animation should give it a look (easily a better film than Brave AND Tangled).

B. These guys have to be fans of Arrested Development. Too bad they couldn't throw in the cornballer somewhere.

Find the proof here where someone on imgur provided the comparison between Frozen and the show.
