Are You Trying to Woo Me Jimmy Harper?

Oh Internet, how I have missed you. I dropped my poor little computer off at the Apple store on Tuesday to have my cd-drive thing fixed, meaning I have been without a computer since then. I mean, my dear mother allowed me to use her computer whenever I need to, and my brother is out of town so I am stealing his for right now, but it is just not the same, you know? I find that whenever I am using other people’s computers I spend a total of ten or so minutes on it and then I am done, whereas when I am on my own computer I spend hours at least thirty or so minutes doing nothing really. I don’t spend countless hours on facebook (I personally don’t see how anyone can spend over five consecutive minutes on facebook… I get so bored with it so easily!) Instead, I get sucked into the black hole that is youtube.

Yes, I am a youtube junkie. And it isn’t just the people I am subscribed to (Vlogbrothers, Five Awesome Girls, and What the Buck, to name a few). It is clips from shows or movies or, you know, those really lame shipper videos where people take clips of this guy and that girl and put them to cheesy and/or popular music because they should TOTALLY be together, or they really did love each other, or she should be with him, aka the one that got away! For example, Pam and Jim from The Office (pre-season three) or Derek and Meredith from Grey’s Anatomy (that is a popular one), etc. Those videos are really addictive. Then there are links to more clips and your favorite moments from shows like Scrubs, Psych, Friends and of course America’s Next Top Model, because who DOESN’T enjoy watching this clip every five minutes?

Then after I finish watching them I come over here and take up your time posting AWESOME videos in this very blog. AWESOME videos that you should be watching. Take for example the following clip from Reefer Madness: The Movie Musical, a hilariously interesting (to say the least) movie you should see. I feel as though this little clip, which happens to be one of the most brilliant love songs ever written, allows you to get a glimpse inside my Shakespeare-loving heart.

See how awesome that video was? Behold, the power of youtube.

So just remember kids- the next time you are bored and don’t want to spend countless hours doing homeowork or any kind of work for that matter, just take a trip to youtube land and get lost in the utter uselessness of it all. Your life will never be the same again. I promise.

A post dedicated to the awesomeness that is Sesame Street.

First, I can not even begin to tell you how utterly amazing this find was:

Thank you Sara.

Next, I love me some Joshua Radin. And you should too. I also love me some Scrubs. Again, you should too. Joshua Radin and Zack Braff are quite good friends in real life (Zack has directed a few of Radin’s music videos) and Radin’s songs appear in Scrubs throughout the past few years. (Who could forget season three when Winter played during the funeral? Still makes my cry every time I watch it.)

In case you don’t watch Scrubs, JD (played by Braff) day dreams a lot and has an inner monologue which serves as a sort-of-but-not-always narrator of the show. The episodes usually end nicely with a little “lesson” (if you could call it that) or a “wrap up” by JD. The reason I am telling you all of this, and there is a point, is because on a recent episode of Scrubs, JD’s  day dreams were filled with the characters of Sesame Street. During the ending “wrap up” the theme song for Sesame Street played, but it was a newer version slowed down and set to the piano by Joshua Radin. And I must say, I find it really beautiful. I found a video of the show with the song in the background…

Sorry that you have to endure the dialogue. Not that there is anything wrong with the dialogue, but you know, it sort of overshadows the song, which was kind of the point of putting the video on here. If you click right here you can see a guy playing it, though the video is rather dark. Dark in the sense that there is very little light, not in the sense that they have taken all the innocence out of Sesame Street. Because that would just be sad.
