My Mom’s Strange Youtube History

My mom works from home. When she doesn’t want to be bothered, she closes the door to her “office” and we are ABSOLUTELY NOT supposed to disturb her. I always just assumed she needed to be in a work zen mode. I didn’t question anything.

The other day, I brought in the mail. I knocked on her door as a warning before I entered, as I always do. Maybe I imagined it, but I was pretty sure she was watching a Harlem Shake video. Not any Harlem Shake video, but a Harlem Shake video of dogs. Before I could process anything, she turned and snapped “I’M WORKING!” before I ran out.

I was pretty sure the video was this one:

Within moments, I knew I had a mission. I needed to see my mom’s youtube video history.

THE MISSION

Getting on her computer was actually really easy… so to be honest my mission only took about five minutes. When she was finished with her work (the door was now opened), I asked my mom if I could check my email on her computer. Not questioning the fact why I had to check on her computer, when there are seriously 3 other computers within a five foot radius, she obliged. I took my screen captures, sent them to myself through her email, and ran to my own computer to look at the evidence.

THE RESULTS

These were the first four:

I knew she watched that one Harlem Shake Video!

I KNEW IT WAS THE HARLEM SHAKE WITH ANIMALS. Wait… I started to process everything… What is my mom watching? I only was able to get a list of her last 21 videos, so the sampling may be a little small. STILL, I did find some interesting results:

  • 7 out of 21 videos were Harlem Shake videos.
  • 7 out of 21 videos were about animals, mostly dogs and cats, but there was one video starring a hamster.
  • 4 videos were Harlem Shake videos FEATURING animals.
  • 2 videos were on strange medical conditions.
  • 1 was a video aimed at children so that they learn about the colors of the rainbows:

 

Oh and the last one was…

I don’t even know to interpret the data, except to say, that there’s a little more going on behind closed doors than I thought.

For your enjoyment please find below the remaining videos of the list:

Cool Photo of the Day: Barbie Dissected

OKAY OKAY… Let’s get the elephant in the room slaughtered first (is that how the expression goes?).  I’ve been M.I.A. for a while… Let’s just say that I was busy travelling the south seas, perfecting my spanish guitar and cashing in my two lottery victories (all of that may or may not be true).  BUT FORGIVE ME GUYS, PLZ?

So as a special welcome back return gift, here is an amazing sculpture by artist Jason Freeny:

It’s the lovely, large breasted, tiny footed, anatomically incorrect miss Barbie dissected and made sort of more anatomically correct (feet and boobs still the same though…)

Unintentionally Funny Video of the Day: Underwater Nightclub NYC

For some reason when I watched the following video I started uncontrollably laughing (the muahaha kind).  I was just imagining the ways in which this is terrible idea.

First off, WHO brings their freakin’ iPhone to an underwater club? Second, the Dart Gun (that really seems like a spear fishing gun) seems a tad dangerous to give to drunk people in futuristic scuba suits.  THIRD, there’s a button just to release bubbles.

FOURTH, FIFTH AND SIXTH:  Vomit, Urine and Farts (oooooh maybe that’s what the bubble button is for – hiding flatulence).

Seventh – it just seems altogether awkward…

ANYWAY, I clap my hands to you TechnoMarine (a watch company) – genius advertisement.  Even though my brain automatically thought about all the ways in which an underwater nightclub would be terrible, I still want to go there…

Don’t Fix what Ain’t Broke: the Scrabble Application on Facebook

I’ve discussed my Scrabble addiction before, but I’ll say it again… I believe that scrabble is the most perfect game ever created.  In fact, the creator of Scrabble, Alfred Mosher Butts,  studied the front page of The New York Times for an entire year to calculate how frequently each letter of the alphabet was used.  Words with Friends cannot even compare…

So, today when I went to play my daily game of Scrabble through the facebook application, I was surprised to find this:

What is that madness?  It looks like they hired the web designers of Myspace circa 2003 and Zynga’s Farmville to make this terrible eyesore. Continue reading

Awkward Adventures in Internet Dating: Plenty of Mitch

According to a recent study, internet dating is the second-most common way for couples to meet (I think, blacked out nights at the local watering hole is number one, but I may need to cross reference that).  An amazing 22 PERCENT of the couples surveyed met through dating websites.  In contrast, Prior to 1978, only .02 percent of couples met online (which personally I find kinda high, considering the fact that the internet sort of, kind of, didn’t exist back then).   Point is, the dating landscape has changed and you might need to get over your fear of internet stalkers, awkward conversations and the potential of a chubbo, to find the one you’ve been waiting for.

After my $5,000 victory (THANK YOU, BY THE WAY) on a one minute short, I’ve decided to become more aggressive in getting involved in film/writing projects.  One of these projects is PLENTY OF MITCH, a webispode series that follows the  internet dating adventures of Mitch, a down on his luck illustrator, and his friends, Jamie and Marco (pictured)…

It hasn’t been released yet (it will be released in the coming weeks), but it is absolutely hilarious, has a great cast and high production value.  If you’ve been on a date with someone you met online and it was TERRIBLE you will definitely relate to the misadventures the guys will go through.  Even if you haven’t, you can live vicariously through them and laugh along the way.

Here’s a link to the facebook page for you to get updates on when it will be released, behind the scenes info and more!  Don’t forget to also like the HAHABUDA facebook page, while you are at it.  Thanks!

I won the $5,000 – THANK YOU AMERICA!

Hey Everyone!

Last week I posted about my entry in the Don’t Trust the B Funniest Roommates Contest. AKA THIS VIDEO:

Well I WON the 5 Grand!  Thank you for all those who support me in this (especially my lovely crew)! I’ve decided that filmmaking is something I want to pursue more (especially script writing).

I found out about a week and half ago about my win (sorry for the lag in sharing), well a week later, I found out something equally exciting.  My good friend won the $5,000 text contest with this lovely/smelly gem:

You know your living situation is a hot mess when your roommate leaves, but his B.O. lingers. For most people, I assume personal hygiene is a basic, day-to-day necessity. For my ex-roommate, it was a tedious chore that happened, at best, once a week. We developed a passive-aggressive relationship where I opened windows for freshness, and he closed windows, marinating the room in a stench that would make garbage men shudder. I’m almost positive the wallpaper started to peel away from the walls. We signed a one-year lease, but he bounced after 2 months when he found my friends Febrezing him in his sleep.

So we either are extremely lucky or we have a penchant for terrible roommates, either way… we’re ballers, we rock, we thank you, and we are applying for the Amazing Race… That is all
