John Cleese: Graham Chapman Memorial Service

I can’t imagine how hard it must be to find the right words when a friend dies. But I’m sure, that John Cleese (and the other members of Monty Python) found the right words in the eulogy given in tribute to Graham Chapman.

Benjamin Zander: Classical music with shining eyes

Do you love classical music?

This is a passionate TED Talk by Benjamin Zander, conductor of the Boston Philharmonic, which will teach you that you actually do, but aren’t aware of it. And he has some interesting things to say about leadership.

Even if you think classical music isn’t for you, watch it. I promise you won’t regret it.
