question every MBA faces. A lot of time and money has been invested
in you, and once you graduate you're supposed to cash that ticket in
for as much money and status as you can. Your parents and peers
expect it. And you may feel that there's really no other choice. You
can't risk wasting that expensive education. It's the safe thing to
do. Isn't it?
Mark Albion doesn't think so. In "The Good Life", a

between an MBA and a fisherman on a small island. As the MBA tries

Best Weird Internet Video Gets Its Viral Payoff
At the end of September, a video
of a girl dancing, sword in hand, to electronic music, while an
old woman and dog looked on, appeared on YouTube. There was no
description, no context, no followup marketing campaign; it
wasn't a music video; it wasn't a comedy sketch. No one could
figure it out. Who were the kids? What was the point? Was it
fake? Was it real? And what would that even mean?
short film follows the journey of a homeless man looking for change,
but not the kind of change you might think. The film gives
expression to the idea that empathy and awareness of the needs of
others are more important aspects of philanthropy than financial
resources. It also celebrates the notion that even the most
powerless among us have the capacity to be agents of goodness in the
world. Could you be the change in somebody's life today?

Brian Wilson of The Beach Boys said, “Who better to
make the music videos than our fans? Our fans mean everything to us
and have supported us for a long time. We think this is a special
opportunity for us to be able to put the creation of these music
videos in the fans’ hands for songs that are so important to us and
hopefully to them, as well.”
Robert Capria, creative director at Actuality Films,
is a long time fan and jumped on this opportunity on Tongal.com to
create an amazing video for one of the world’s most famous bands.

Six hundred years ago, humans,
black bears, and mountain lions were inhabiting a Missouri cave.
When the entrance collapsed, everything was trapped inside, creating
a time capsule not to be discovered until a small hole in the
ceiling exposed the cave in 1985. In this 30-minute documentary by
Emmy-winning director Christian Cudnik, rappel 65 feet into the
darkness and follow cave archaeologists as they document prehistoric
footprints, rock art, torch marks, bear tracks, beds, and much more
in this cave north of Springfield, Missouri.
