#  The Time You Have Left →

A simple beautiful illustration of life by Ze Frank and company.

#  Brené Brown, Ze Frank, and Shame →

September 16th, 2012 at 16:05 // In Worth Watching 

This is the first episode of A Show with Ze Frank that really made me grateful to see him doing it again. It was kind, tender, and taught me things I didn’t know.

The thing I didn’t know was about the work of Brené Brown, from whom Mr. Franks linked to two talks. (There’s a third on YouTube, but it’s video quality is low, and it largely overlaps with the other two.) Her work with shame, vulnerability, meaning, and “heartfulness” seems like it’s 80% of some very profound thing. (I can’t escape the feeling that she’s not fully completed a loop inside her own mind that would make it a complete profound thing.)

#  A Show – Thinks Like Me →

April 26th, 2012 at 18:46 // In Worth Watching 

Ze Frank is back with a new show. It’s very nice to see, and so far I’d say I’ll remember it in five years as fondly as I recall The Show. I think this is the best episode he’s posted so far.

#  Obligatory Link to The Show: Replay →

March 27th, 2011 at 14:58 // In Worth Distraction 

On its five year anniversary, Ze Frank is reposting all the episodes of The Show which ran for a year starting March 2006 with a few paragraphs of commentary. This probably doesn’t interest you unless you watched it back then, but given my fond memories I had to tell you.

#  Movies I Don’t Remember →

January 21st, 2011 at 15:27 // In Worth Distraction 

Short synopses of films someone saw a while ago and doesn’t remember well. It’s a cute idea, executed well, and has essentially no value beyond diversion. But still, 5 minutes of fun.

#  Bust that Cycle →

March 7th, 2010 at 11:52 // In Worth Watching 

Ever since I watched this episode of “the show” over three years ago (wow) it’s stayed in the back of my mind. And since Firefox (or user error) busted my cycle of having 40+ tabs open persistently — some were from September — it’s been at the forefront. So whether you’ve seen it before or you haven’t go watch zefrank explain something that could change your life.

#  Disney is Stealing Ze Frank’s Life →

Though he’s not dramatic enough to say it, the case could undeniably be made.

#  Just Breathe →

September 21st, 2008 at 20:20 // In Worth Distraction 

Ze Frank recently put together a sweet song. A reminder that you’ll be fine.

Also, I recently listened to Mr. Frank on The Sound of Young America and thought it a truly great interview. Video here.

UPDATE (4/28/10): After being unavailable for about a month, Mr. Frank has moved the song to a dedicated page. The title link reflects that change.

#  When Parent Infallibility Ends →

May 20th, 2008 at 12:48 // In Worth Reading 

The always-interesting Ze Frank is collecting stories of when people realized their parents aren’t perfect. Those contributed so far are interesting, and a reminder that I don’t remember when that happened for me.

Really, I’ve not read it and don’t intend to. I’m just using it as an excuse to share some of my favorite episodes. Like:
