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:

Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m a terribly inconsistent blogger

Okay guys, I said about 6 months ago (has it really been that long?), that I was going to start blogging more consistently.  And I didn’t really keep that promise.

I’ve been so busy with my 20 hour a week job, my only chore of doing the dishes and my new hobby of online poker (this is all true).  BUT i’m back!  And get ready for some HAHABUDA action.

For a little preview, I’ll provide my new favorite picture of the internet.

my favorite is the ginger kid

ENJOY!  AND I’LL BE IN TOUCH SOON!

Weird Tiger Fishing AKA the safest party in the world

Hmmmm…. I really don’t know what to make of this video that takes place in what I think is a Thai zoo.

So (mostly) petite, Asian women are dangling colored trash bags filled with God knows what over tigers while they stand in the same enclosure. And they find it hilarious?  Let’s put this idea into my handy list of “THE SMARTEST, SAFEST THINGS I’VE EVER SEEN” along with flaming vodka shots and parkour-ing over high rises.

GO ASIA!

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…)

Online Dating Slumpbusting: Plenty of Mitch Episode 2

I think online dating is getting weirder by the minute.   Just take Purrsonals (facepalm for worst dating related pun I’ve ever seen) – an online dating site for cat lovers.  Or Singles with food allergies – because when I look for a lover, I need them to have the same aversion to peanuts, shellfish and gluten as me. We have even reached the point where chimpazees have turned to online dating to find their mates.

Plenty of Mitch – a webseries on online dating written and directed by a friend of mine – has finally launched episode 2!  There’s no furries, food allergies or chimps in this episode… but it may have something that you have experienced… SLUMPBUSTERS.  Don’t know what that is… well watch away.

Missed Episode 1?  Click Here.

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…

Web series on Internet Dating: PLENTY OF MITCH has Launched

A few weeks ago, I wrote about a web series that I was helping out with, Plenty of Mitch, which follows the (mis)adventures of a group of guys testing the waters of internet dating. As the show goes on, you’ll see the good, the bad and the (overwhelmingly) ugly side of meeting strangers on the interwebs.  Well, i’ve got some good news, the first episode has launched!

The hilarious first episode sets the stage for all the craziness that will occur as the show continues.  Will Mitch find love or is this a train wreck waiting to happen?  Will Jamie ever get a date with a non-Louie/non-Leper?  What is Dean’s (aka Danger’s) secret to his luck with the ladies?

So, have you had any terrible dating stories? I’ve never gone on one (my parents did once offer to buy me a match.com account…), but I’ve heard HORRIBLE STORIES from friends: from burn victims who can only talk about their injuries to guys who buy three long islands before the entree…  I don’t know if it’s a world I want to explore.  I’ll just live vicariously through the guys on Plenty of Mitch.

So while you are at it, LIKE the Plenty of Mitch facebook page to get news about upcoming episodes.

P.S.  if you are wondering why the sound is so good it, was because I was holding the boom mike…  jk jk

Rest in Peace Richard Dawson. Here’s an old article I wrote on the antics of game show hosts (and culminating with Mr. Dawson himself)

Originally posted on HAHABUDA:

I love game shows.  But even more, I love game show hosts.  My top 3 favorite game show hosts of all time are: Chuck Woolery, Alex Trebek and Bob Barker.  And even though Pat Sajak, from Wheel of Fortune, seems like the creepy uncle I never had, he has a special place in my heart too.

SO, BIG SHOCKER HERE.  Pat Sajak recently admitted in an interview that he and Vanna White would get pretty plastered before the show in the early days of the Wheel.  As he states:

 Our dinner break would be two and a half hours long while they drove in cars and boats and gazebos…. We had a place called Los Arcos…. They had great margaritas, so Vanna and I would go across and have two or three or six. And then come and do the last shows, and have trouble recognizing the…

From MP3 Grillz to Michael Jackson’s Pet name: Daily Mail Links

I LOVE the Daily Mail.  I seriously start my day by getting my fix of British tabloids.   So here are my favorite links of the day:

1. Michael Jackson’s pet name for himself was “turd.”

2.   Honey Honey Boo Boo Child (aka Alana from Toddler’s and Tiaras) is getting her own TLC Reality Television show!!!!  If you are out of the child pageant circuit, this video will catch you up (it’s worth it):

3.  The family of a man who died in a threesome was awarded $3 million because his doctor did not warn him against extreme physical activity.  Because a doctor’s warning was totally gonna stop him…

4.  Grillz 3.0 – you can now play MP3’s through your teeth and this is somehow a growing trend.  The control panel is on the roof of your mouth, so you can change the music with your tongue…  U.S.A! U.S.A.!

Daily Mail, you are the best!
