Curious about me?

— thebrainbehind @ 06:47

Hello ! This is Michael  Paredrakos :-)

A Strategic Planner from Greece who is curious about many things…and this is my blog piled with everything that draws my attention!

Curiosity is an emotion that causes natural inquisitive behavior such as exploration, investigation, and  learning, evident by observation in  human and many  animal species. The term can also be used to denote the behavior itself being caused by the emotion of curiosity. As this emotion represents a drive to know new things, curiosity is the fuel of science and all other disciplines of human study.

As you may know by now we have a bunch of videos online and we have a lot more that we’re going to be releasing over the next few months. Use as many as you want, we love your blog!!

    I really like the video of San Fran from the 1950s. I’m a sucker for old footage.

  7. Hi, Michael
    Today I got to know your blog, during the morning, man I love it! it lifted my spirit and I spent one hour watching videos and drawings with my 4 year old daughter, we even printed some from that Polish illustrator that are on our fridge now!
    It’s wonderful there is people like yourself, compiling these beautiful things for others to see.
    The rest of the day seems much nicer now, thanks,man!
    I am recommending my friends to take a look!
    Greetings from Argentina

  9. Hello there, Michael! A man with curious brain.. (little girly punch on your shoulder) :) couldn’t find your email anywhere.. maybe because I wasn’t supposed to.. or maybe I should start listening to my oculist. either way, I wanted to show you this: (p.s. their video is great too). Now that’s what I call positive :)
    Take care,

  10. Hello Michael! How dare you be on holiday??? I’m desperately waiting for your last discovery… ;)
    Your blog is very, very, very smart, nice etc… Just keep on your way! You made me curious about things I never only suspected in arts – any sort. Thank you so much for that! I keep talking of your blog around me eversince I discovered the Curious Brain.
    I’m very sensible about the variety and the internationality of your selection. A hymn to human kind in its best aspect.
    (Very)good job!
    Greetings from France!

  42. I stumbled on this website while I was watching short films on vimeo. I’ve spent a considerable amount of time on this website and this is the first time I’ve ever wanted to say something to someone I’d only seen of online. This is amazing and I absolutely adore your taste.

    Love love love from a girl in San Francisco.

    So keep up the great job and i’m looking forward to more new stuff :)

    Love from Croatia!

  46. Hello, Michael !

    I’ve been following your blog for almost a year now. I’m a senior college student and my major is PR and Advertising. After the first year i realized that i like advertising way better than PR, so i really started looking into it. I can’t say how in handy your website came and how many times i looked for info here for my projects or simply for my own thirst for advertising knowledge. Thank you for this blog and for all the work you put into it and keep up being curious and making others curious as well.

    Best regards,
    Roxana from Romania
