Enjoy this little Mother’s Day Gift – a video of “I Will Still Be Loving You” by David Ryan Harris. Like many of DRH’s songs, I dare you not to cry by the end! 😀

Ultimate Dog Tease

0

This video – Ultimate Dog Tease – has got to be the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long, long time. It was first brought to my attention via the Facebook feed of my friend, cool chick/rocker/actress/spin instructing goddess/as-big-a-dog-lover-as-i-am-if-that’s-even-possible Marla Sokoloff, but apparently she’s ahead of the curve, because several million people have watched it since she first posted in on Facebook.

Check it out if you haven’t seen it – and if you HAVE, then just enjoy it again! 😀

Cool Dog Tricks

I won’t even lie, Hercules can’t do anything even close to approaching the cool dog tricks that this little guy, Jesse, is rocking so hard in this video. 😀

If you read this blog, it’s not a secret to you how much I adore Matt Nathanson. I’ve flown to both Chicago and Massachusetts to see him play, for God’s sake!

Well, if you ever had any doubts why that might be…allow me to present the following:

Matt Nathanson performing Elton John’s I Guess That’s Why They Call It the Blues on Don’t Forget the Lyrics.

Just. Awesome.

Caitlin Crosby’s Awesome “Embrace Your Flawz” Video

0

I love people who are passionate about their projects, and that definitely describes Caitlin Crosby‘s three year quest to record the footage for the following video, and create it.

Caitlin (along with United States of Tara actress Brie Larson) is the driving force behind LoveYourFlawz.com, a budding movement to promote body image celebration, not just among teenage girls as such pushes often focus on, but along the entire spectrum of age and gender.

This is a subject that is close to her heart, and a theme that can be seen throughout her songwriting – like in another of her popular songs, “Imperfect is the New Perfect.”

Take a look at the video – it’s really great.  Very inspiring!  And while you’re at it – Love Your Flawz! 😀

Snark + Marketing = Snarketing = Target Women = Hilarious

This series of videos, Target Women, were brought to my attention by college roomie Evelyn. And they are AWESOME!

Sarah Haskins does a segment on InfoMania, which you can watch Current Thursday nights at 10 pm.

There’s about forty in the series, but here are four of my favorite:

The first, the classic, the original – YOGURT! 😀

Broadview Security

Back 2 School

PS22 Chorus – Viva La Vida by Coldplay

This is my favorite of the PS22 Chorus videos.  And I don’t even like Coldplay!  In fact, I like the PS22 version of this song quite a bit better than the original. 😛

Enjoy!

Dorn. He’s the Next Big Thing. You Heard It Here First.

So, if you’re into music and the internet, or even only one of the two, chances are you’ve heard of Bravo’s new show they’re casting for right now, called Hitmakers.  They’re looking for well-rounded artists, as opposed to American Idol who are looking primarily for singers.  Hitmakers wants people who can also write, produce, play instruments – the whole package.

Well, I was watching some of the audition tapes online, and I think I have found their winner.  Seriously, people.  Why even have a show?

Dorn is the epitome of the phrase “the whole package.”  From his unique fashion styling to his lyrical genius to his wall-o’-guitars, dude has it going on.

Don’t take my word for it.  See for yourself.

I give you….the man, the myth, the legend…..DORN:

1981 News Report On the Newfangled “Newspapers on Your Computer” Phenomenon

4

Enjoy this little blast from the past News Report about people (GASP!) reading newspapers on computers 😀
I originally came across this video on Genuine Juice, and the blogger himself was actually interviewed for this news report as a kid, but ended up on the cutting room floor.

Here are a few notable things about this news report –

  • The report is given by the TV Station’s “Science Editor” because it deals with computers.  And, you know.  They’re Science-y.
  • The subject of the report dials the “local number” to connect his computer on his actual telephone! 😀  Hello, War Games!
  • David Cole of the San Francisco Examiner was half-prescient.  He predicted that newspapers on computers wouldn’t make a lot of money.  Heh. That’s true.  But he also said “We’re probably not going to lose money.”  Wow, David.  Inside 30 years this technology is going to decimate your entire industry.   SOMEONE’S FACE IS RED!
  • Only between 2,000 and 3,000 people in the San Francisco Bay Area owned computers!
  • There is actually a title card that designates the subject as “Richard Halloran – Owns Home Computer”
  • The TEXT ONLY edition of the newspaper takes over TWO HOURS to download!!!  And service cost FIVE BUCKS AN HOUR!
