My Brain is Ignoring My Nose! Kooky Song of Mind Blowing Facts

by Matt Forcey

It’s Friday afternoon and about the right time for a bit of buffoonery.  I’ve called on farcical songster and today’s court jester, Jonathan Mann, to fire up his patented Songatron and spin us out an amusing little ditty.  Please note that it’s always my goal to make sure you learn something new when you visit, regardless of how idiosyncratic. 

What Jonathan has created for our enjoyment accomplishes both of our goals by giving you a few nuggets of titillating info and a smile on your face, both of which I encourage you share with friends this weekend.  Want more from the Songatron?  You can sign up here to receive Jonathan’s Song-a-Day via email.

Jonathan: “I stumbled on to a really wonderful thread on Reddit.com about the most mind-blowing facts people could think of. I collected a bunch of them and made this song!”

All My Friends Are Dead

by Matt Forcey

A dark-witted book explores the feelings of loss and loneliness with ironic levity.

A children’s book for adults, “All My Friends Are Dead” cleverly illustrates the inevitable sadness we all will face—whether you’re a tree, sock, pirate, cassette tape or other—when our friends cease to exist.

From the snowman whose friends all melt away to the house plant whose friends are slowly killed by humans, the book uses dark humor to shed light on the ubiquitous feeling of loneliness.

Written by actor Avery Monsen and journalist Jory John.
