A dissection of insane commenters on a YouTube video

What could possibly be more innocent than a laughing baby? According to YouTube commenters, apparently, an awful lot. Slate has a fairly awesome article about this fabulously wheezy Swedish baby who gained Internet notoriety after his father posted a...

Video: Funny baby faces

I don't know whether to laugh or run the other way. This baby has some incredible facial expressions! Now, is it me or does the baby seem to be underwater? Like a baby fish or something? (Just me then? Okie dokie...) ...

Charlie bit me and it really huuut (video)

You know what's even cuter than a little boy with an English accent? An English little boy with his baby brother on his lap, charmingly allowing his finger to be bitten -- and then thinking better of that decision. Adding to the cuteness: a giddy...

California college offers YouTube class

Pitzer College in Claremont, California has begun offering a course that is sure to appeal to lots of students - "Learning from YouTube." Professor Alexandra Juhasz, a media studies professor at the liberal arts college, hopes the course will provide...

Two year old navigates iPhone, selects Coldplay

I think this video story is a praise-worthy testament to Apple's intuitive iPhone design (although I have yet to see one, dammit). It's also just an awesome video of a really cute kid who is probably too young to select an artist, play a song, watch...

Kid calls 911 for Math help

A child who was told to call for help when he needed help with his Math homework came up with an innovative solution - calling the Police. This funny You Tube video depicts a conversation between a genial police officer and a disgruntled...

Toddlers used as contraceptive tool

I think my son has done every one of the panic-inducing toddler actions features in this cute/horrifying Danish commercial for contraception. The commercial is presented by the Danish Pharmaceutical Association and features a variety of ridiculously...

"Mom My Ride" video

There's something about having children that invites chaos. Take, for example, the family car. Before kids, you vacuumed the seats, washed and waxed on the weekends and even had an air freshener. After kids? You try to make sure that the seats don't...

Teenage You-Tuber the next big thing?

I am wary of the whole You Tube thing. It makes me feel crusty to say that, kind of like the blue-hairs who still cling to their computers and insist the Internet is just another one of those newfangled fads: like Beta and Coleco Vision. Perhaps I'm...

Crutch! video offers insight into the world of physical difficulties

I have previously posted about how much I respect and appreciate my son's 8th grade teacher. Recently she emailed a video to the entire class that features a young man who has bilateral hip deformity and lives his life on crutches. One of the...

Video of the Day: Smart Mouth Kid

Nate is at Grandma's getting spoiled rotten today, so I had plenty of time to check out other people's cute kids. I came across this video for what seems to be an insurance ad. I like ads where the kids are too smart and mouthy for their age. Like...

Line Rider, good fun for kids of all ages

A few weeks ago my son, Loren, asked me to come check out something cool on the computer. This happens about a zillion times a day, so I didn't run as fast as I could to check out what I assumed would be yet another Red Hot Chili Peppers video. But...

The therapy of baby laughter

Babies have such obscure laughter triggers. I remember watching a video at Sundry's with her son laughing uproariously at a hilarious granola bar wrapper. Nolan thinks it's uproarious to: throw canteloupe off his high chair, crash his truck into my...

Video shows deception in models

When I was a teenager, I would have done anything to look like the models in the magazines. I'd flip through glossy magazines and feel inadequate: gangly and pimply, I knew I'd never come close to looking like one of them. We're always told that...

The gender double standard?

I was watching the most recent Paris Hilton video on You Tube (I don't know why. I am sickly fascinated. I cannot pry my screaming eyes away from the screen.) For those of you who haven't watched the video (and aren't predisposed to taking a gander),...
