Weird Video Wednesday:: Bring on the Shih Tzus!

It’s no secret that I adore shih tzus, especially my own 2 year-old darling Madalyne.  The other day while wasting time, I mean, doing important research for “Weird Video Wednesday,” I stumbled across this video.  Unfortunately, I’m not able to embed it because the owner has disabled the feature, but you can click on theContinue reading “Weird Video Wednesday:: Bring on the Shih Tzus!”

Tuned Out:: Charlie Bit My Finger!

It’s the weekend.  It’s time for fun, frivolity, and catching up on all my posts you missed this week while you were busy dealing with the “real world.”  Instead, I’m going to post a fun video every weekend for you.  I’m calling it “Tuned Out” (even though I know you’re really tuned in). My friendContinue reading “Tuned Out:: Charlie Bit My Finger!”

Finding the Force and Palin Power

My friend Cal gave me a heads-up about the JediGym videos on YouTube, which are–I’m not gonna lie–strange. I tend to stay more on the fantasty side of the genre, so I’m not a big Star Wars fan.  However, I’ve sort of developed a bit of a crush on Master Flynn, which means I needContinue reading “Finding the Force and Palin Power”

Guest Post:: Lights, Camera, Action!

By Derek Tang, Guest Blogger Look closely. Do you see a very disturbing common thread among all these statements? “One [student] recorded [the fight] on a cell phone. The video was posted on the Internet and turned it over to police…”, “Madison County school officials are investigating who posted a beating online…”, “[a] YouTube videoContinue reading “Guest Post:: Lights, Camera, Action!”

The McCain Girls vs. The Obama Girl vs. The Hillary Kid

I don’t know if you’ve heard of the “McCain Girls”–a trio of ladies who have made two videos in support McCain (read more) and the “The Obama Girl” who seems to have a thing for Barack Obama. The McCain Girls, who sing “Raining McCain” and “Here Comes McCain Again” are part of the humor websiteContinue reading “The McCain Girls vs. The Obama Girl vs. The Hillary Kid”

Tom Cruise Scientology Video

A few weeks ago Tom Cruise did a very bizarre interview about his beliefs on scientology. While I’m not a proponent of scientology, I can see how what Christians say could also be construed as “crazy”. I mean, we do believe God came to earth in the person of Jesus, hung out with the dregsContinue reading “Tom Cruise Scientology Video”

Remix Culture: The Early Years

I’m sure this video has been all over youth ministry, youth culture, and many other blogs that have the word “youth” in them. But, until it showed up on YPulse this week, I had no idea it existed. Put together by the fine folks at the Center for Social Media, Remix Culture showcases the usesContinue reading “Remix Culture: The Early Years”

New Year’s Resolutions–Make ‘Em to Break ‘Em

So, here’s my foray into the world of producing a video blog, which I will try to do once a week.  I made it in the car while Sarah and I were waiting for Mary’s sister to pick her up to take her back to college.  My digital camera is perched on the car’s dashboardContinue reading “New Year’s Resolutions–Make ‘Em to Break ‘Em”

Santa Bans The Golden Compass

Santa Claus spoke out this week against The Golden Compass. I guess he won’t be using this compass to steer his sleigh. In a video message posted on YouTube (see below), Santa scolds the movie’s maker, the author of the books behind the movie, and advertisers who support the movie. Looks like they’re all goingContinue reading “Santa Bans The Golden Compass”
