-The Daily Green’s roundup of funny environmental videos has two standouts: the Onion’s “Greening the Iraq War;” and “Canvas Bags,” a music video by Tim Minchin, and oh my God I am hardly an anti-plastic zealot, or even particularly concerned about the issue at all actually, but this video freakin’ rules!* Watch it now. Still not converted to Minchinism? Check out the swearalicious “Pope Song.”
-Maybe think about Simplifying Your Life, as per this book by Dave Bruno? Because thinking about changing your life makes the time pass more quickly.
*Even though canvas bags are inferior to Chico Bags. Go for reusable bags that are made of lightweight nylon and fold up small, ideally into an attached pocket. And get enough bags so you have a set that’s ready to use and a set to wash.
