YouTube Tag

EnterViews is Hilary’s weekly series with emerging artists via various forms of digital communication. Last week as I sat down at work, I did the first thing we all do—check Facebook. It was then that I saw a link from two New York friends. The site was StroudFunding. It was a cheerful looking thing, in blues, whites, and blacks, with the tagline “Changing the way Ian Stroud makes money.” In 2009, the current popular crowdfunding platform, Kickstarter, hit the streets of the internet. Soon, film students across the country wouldRead More

A Lesson in Child’s Play: Kid Snippets

I would like to thank YouTube’s Bored Shorts TV for confirming my belief that children are tiny life coaches. The YouTube channel’s ‘Kid Snippets’ have brought me an incredible amount of entertainment in recent days. They’ve also reminded me of following: It’s important to be encouraging and make your feedback constructive. There are certain things you should always look for when voting for a presidential candidate. Fire can be good and bad. Also, it’s important to make the best out of every situation, no matter how awful. Speeding is wrong,Read More

This Website Will Change Your Life: No Excuse List

Most of us spend at least twelve years of our lives in school (unless you’re a Kardashian or a child star, in which case you’re just screwed). Throughout the years spent in preschool, elementary, high school, and possibly college and beyond, we cram our brains with facts that 99% of us will never need to recall ever again. In this new edition of This Website Will Change Your Life, we’re turning learning upside down and introducing ways to master things that are actually useful and relevant. The website in question,Read More
Jurassic Park with Cats
I know you’re all tired from losing an hour this past weekend, so here’s a video to surely make your day that much better. Someone took the famous kitchen scene from Jurassic Park and put cats in instead of raptors. I’m throughly entertained.Read More
We think about it every day.  Total strangers pass us on the street and we think maybe they could be the  one – or at least wonder what it would be like to kiss them. Thanks to filmmaker Tatia Pilieva, we don’t have to wonder anymore.  Her short film First Kiss took the internet by storm last night, featuring twenty strangers in gorgeously simplistic black and white making the instant jump to first base.  Moments after meeting, each “couple” was asked to engage in a little game of tonsil hockey.  As you canRead More
For years he’s been known as the millionaire in blue jeans, a hero for the working class.  So maybe it’s fitting that Bruce Springsteen paid humble tribute to Lorde’s diamond-in-the-rough hit “Royals” at his show in Auckland, New Zealand two nights ago.  While not the best cover of the teenage superstar’s calling card, it makes a moving acoustic ballad that could easily have been recorded in the Boss’ early days. “Long ago I was the next big thing,” he adds in his trademark rumble.  And it’s true.  Big things haveRead More
It seems the internet isn’t serving its function unless there’s something that everyone is foaming at the mouth about. Case and point: the recent upheaval surrounding a certain Duke underclassman that has sparked the largest feminist discussion this side of a Women’s Studies class. If for some reason you don’t know what I’m talking about, perhaps this will refresh your memory: This little story sent the blogs, forums, online publications and YouTube channels into a tailspin over the past week. It seems everyone from Huffington Post to The Daily BeastRead More

What’s Next?: Scott’s Lookalikes Looks a Lot Like a Hit

The Hollywood Forever Cemetery may be known for its late-summer screenings and concerts among the dead, but tucked away in one of its many offices sits an unsung hero of the movie industry.  Scott Johnson, proprietor of Scott’s Lookalikes – Hollywood’s premiere agency for actors who want to make a living resembling someone more famous, sits behind his desk (really, just a circular table in the conference room).  The “office” is decorated with knock-off award statuettes and framed photos of his clients (I could swear one looks just like JackRead More

#MCM: Jimmy Tatro

Monday, Monday, Monday, y’all, and you know what that means. Man crush time.  -Jimmy Tatro- Twitter: @jimmytatro Instagram: jimprov YouTube: lifeaccordingtojimmy Known for: His funny YouTube videos and great smile. -Jimmy is currently residing in Los Angeles. I first watched some of his YouTube videos a while back and he is pretty comical.  He was in Grown Ups 2 and he is also going to be starring in the sequel to 21 Jump Street…aptly titled 22 Jump Street. A sense of humor is something I find most attractive in a guy…and I thinkRead More
In the cluttered world of YouTube, it’s often difficult to decide what to watch.  Between the sea of cat videos, epic meal suggestions, and the ever-growing FAIL catalogue, it can sometimes seem like you’d break a greater mental sweat (*ahem) “brushing up on your typing skills” than keeping up with your subscriptions. Luckily, there are oases scattered across the brain-dead wasteland of YouTube, the most refreshing of which is provided by none other than the Public Broadcast Service.  Hosted by spirited think-geek Mike Rugnetta (@mikerugnetta), PBS’s Idea Channel deconstructs InternetRead More

Pocket Pool and Pecker Ponchos: PSAs That Nailed It

I would like to thank Brigham Young University-Idaho for the production of the following video. This inspirational anti-wanking PSA gives us all something to think about. The video begins with clips of a young man who is apparently “addicted to pornography” (and watches it in the most unnaturally relaxed manner). His roommates know, but really don’t seem to give a shit or find the need to step in, leaving him “spiritually wounded on the battlefield of a great war.” The video continues with a series of combat scenes, in whichRead More
Breakdown of my time spent while the Super Bowl is on during any given year: 50% eating snacks, 40% seriously asking everyone who’ll listen why they don’t just have Beyonce perform for halftime every year, 9% watching the commercials, and 1% pretending to actually watch the game. For those of you who spend your time otherwise (I don’t understand why you would), here’s a recap of the best commercials worth looking up on YouTube.   Arnold Schwarzenegger Plays Ping-Pong for Bud Light Seriously, watch this. Bud Light took a randomRead More
