I just watched Randy Pausch's last lecture and it was one of the most remarkable lectures I ever watched.

  • Childhood dreams
  • Enabling the dreams of others
  • Lessons learned: how you can achieve your dreams or enable the dreams of others

While I have a tendency to quickly dislike some people because of their suckyness, I have to say that this was a really awesome guy.

rest in peace

About our Program

You Look Nice Today is an audio-based Journal of Emotional Hygiene, staffed by lonelysandwich, scottsimpson, and hotdogsladies.

The three hosts met on Twitter.com, and soon realized that none of them had anything better to do than this. And Twitter.

Nota bene: You Look Nice Today is an audio program that has been prepared by and for “adults.” As a Journal of Emotional Hygiene, our program tackles many of the painful issues typically encountered by persons of this awkward age. Consequently, an uncontrollable level of candor and seemingly non-stop tsunami of profanity may be encountered by listeners. Please do not present this material to non-adults.
