Here are my favorite videos, a new one each month!

September 2022

Flipping the Computational Thinking class, and as a result, we are producing tons of short videos. Here is a direct link to the Youtube channel.

August 2022

Björk is simply stunning.

July 2022

Tons of fun videos at Foil Arms and Hog.

June 2022

This video has aged well.

May 2022

My first tape on repeat, and my first concert: Depeche Mode. RIP, Fletch.

April 2022

Mr. Bean gets it.

March 2022

The new album by Charlotte Adigéry and Bolis Pupul is so much fun. Every track is a banger. The whole album with lyrics can be found here.

February 2022

The world would be a better place if no politician was allowed to stay in office for more than one term. It gets to their head, and as this video shows, so much more than just that. One of the best things in Switzerland is that the president is pretty much a random and unknown minister that changes every year. Switzerland should limit the term as minister to at most 7 years.

January 2022

B99, the show our whole family could agree on.

December 2021

The Swiss government announced yet another lockdown. Even though Omicron is the best possible twist in the never ending Covid story. Anyway, here is a fun anagram: Delta Omicron = Media Control.

November 2021

After the groundbreaking They Shall Not Grow Old, we are treated with a heart warming Beatles documentary by Peter Jackson.

October 2021

"I wanna thank you for your friendship, your leadership, and most of all for your fidelity to the universal values that you embraced as a young girl in East Germany." Did Barack Obama just praise the Free German Youth (FDJ)?!

September 2021

Norm Macdonald RIP. In the video, Norm teaches the next best thing to flossing.

August 2021

10 years ago I linked an "oldie" by Moodymann. Here is another 15 year old track by SMD, still is as fresh as on its release day.

July 2021

One of my favorite channels with a surprising credit to Runaway.

June 2021

Jon Stewart brings back what has been missing on late night television!

May 2021

The Swiss German language, well explained.

April 2021

Jenny Hval is on an amazing roll.

March 2021

Bailouts for everybody!

February 2021

SOPHIE died in Athens, RIP. Here is one of my favorites from 2020.

January 2021

Same video as in March 2020, because, unbelievably, the Swiss government just announced a new lockdown. Instead of organizing vaccines (in time, and enough, and from every vendor!), the government again chooses the bluntest possible instrument. But do lockdowns at least work? Not really. Scientists "fail to find an additional benefit of stay-at-home orders and business closures". Freedom, please.

I started this one video each month tradition in January 2010. You will find the early years here.
