Adam Boe, Magento Intern: 

Shia LaBeouf delivers the most intense motivational speech of all time

I really need this to get through my Mondays:

Dave Balser, JD Edwards Delivery Director:

With Jim Carrey, Stephen Colbert, and Bill Maher on this year’s guest list, season six of Jerry Seinfeld’s web series “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” could be the best yet.  The new season premiered June 3rd

Navarr Barnier, Magento Developer:

Roman Mars: Why city flags may be the worst-designed thing you've never noticed


The worst city flag.

As a massive fan of CGPGrey, I’ve been slowly introduced to vexilology – the study of flags. In this video, Roman Mars gives a TED Talk about city flags and how terrible their design tends to be. Definitely an interesting watch that’ll make you think twice about your city’s flag.

Hannah Gierosky, Marketing Specialist:

I LIVE for this kind of thing. The Broadway casts of The Lion King and Aladdin were stuck in LaGuardia airport so, naturally, they had a sing off. For more impromptu Broadway singing on mass transit, check out this video and this video.


Michelle Kowalski, UI/UX Designer:

oVertone Conditioner

I am working my way through the pastel hair rainbow and these color depositing conditioners look like a nice way to maintain or create brightly colored hair.

Greg Crane, Magento Developer:


ODiN - World's first projection mouse

This kickstarter is funded and will be shipping soon. It's for a laser projected mouse which allows you to just use your hand movement as a mouse. It's pretty cool and might help out with the hand cramps you get from working on the computer all day, due to the lower angle of the hand (plus it looks pretty cool).


Katie Conaway, Business Analyst: 

Stitch Fix

I hate going shopping, so this online stylist service seemed like a good option. I got my first box today and I'm hoping it's full of things I'll wear!


Gian Genovesi, Magento Delivery Lead: 


These bird drones are officially called Ornithopters and they are cool and also terrifying. Every time I see a large raptor, I'll just assume it is the government watching my every move. 


John Kormanec, Solutions Architect:

Brunswick 80's Guy

Are you planning a trip to (or through) beautiful, sunny Brunswick, Ohio this summer? If so, then keep your eyes peeled for the ever-popular, semi-famous, and slightly left-of-center Brunswick 80's Guy! If you’re lucky enough to see our “sultan of spandex” at Starbucks, Buehlers (in the cream rinse aisle), or perhaps just taking a leisurely stroll down Route 303, be sure to snap a picture and post it to your Facebook page! Rock on, Brunswick 80's Guy… rock on!
