YouTube faves right now

Up until recently YouTube was the place where I watched music videos, stand up clips and movies trailers.

Copenhagen is always a good idea

I’ve been really fortunate in the past few years that I’ve gotten to visit Copenhagen several times. At this point I have a nice Copenhagen routine going.
