24 hours of Happy
is a full day of people dancing to Pharrell Williams' 4 minute song Happy
, with a clock interface overlaid the video to allow you to jump around throughout the day. If you don't have the patience/ endurance/ care to watch a full day of lip-synching dancers, Molly Beauchemin watched it all, in two hour blocks, on mute, for you (and Pitchfork)
and made note of the 5 best things. But if you are
into that sort of endurance test, here's the Wikipedia list of films with the longest run times
, including a total of 75 films that run over 5 hours. If you're looking for something a little shorter, an AMC blogger listed the top 50 longest (American) movies of all time
, but missed The Ten Commandments

has been released, and while it is slightly shorter than previous years, he sure has some great new tricks up his sleeve. [more inside]

Is there a formula—some mix of love, work, and psychological adaptation—for a good life? For 72 years, researchers at Harvard have been examining this question, following 268 men who entered college in the late 1930s through war, career, marriage and divorce, parenthood and grandparenthood, and old age. Here, for the first time, a journalist gains access to the archive of one of the most comprehensive longitudinal studies in history. What Makes Us Happy?
