This Droid Breakdances and Does Manual Labor

Just looking at it, I was like ‘ummm so cool’ then I saw this bot in action and I turned into a gleeful child. ‘Robots are awesome’ and they are most likely going to ‘take our jobs’. Thanks NASA.

If you want to know how to package a talk show for the Internet, look no further than BBC America’s The Graham Norton Show. The format already benefits from giving a bunch of random celebrities a drink and letting them gab with the delightful Norton about all sorts of random topics.

This clip features a nice young audience member from Norway, Girls creator Lena Dunham, IDRIS ELBA and some very solid advice. I shall not say any more.

Behind the Scenes Story of Batkid

It’s no question that we all fell in love with the Make A Wish Batkid stunt and most of us could care less that it cost the city of San Francisco over 100k. Totally worth it. A sick little boy got to fulfill any nerd’s wildest dream. Above is the official behind the scenes video with the family talking about the caper. It’s a great recap of the whole event, not to mention down right charming.

Viral Video Alert: Nooooo Husky

Most dogs have people like tendencies. But it’s the best is when they not only show their similarities but they say them in toddler like tantrums. Take Blaze, he’s a husky pup who really protests getting into his crate. I love how like anyone would he fights back with a series of soft, loud, and stern ‘Nooos’ to show that he means business. With over 2 million views on YouTube, I think this dog deserves a treat (or seven).

Misheard Lyrics of 2013

I’m an audio learner and a huge chunk of my memory is saturated with song lyrics. And since I never see them written out about 10% of those lyrics are totally wrong (which often ends in public singing embarrassment). For those of you who, like me, have been belting it out from your misinformed brain, here’s a breakdown of popular lyrics from 2013 that you might be singing wrong. To make it even more clear, these are the ones that will get you laughed at.

Say goodbye to “This Year” with The Mountain Goats

It’s New Year’s Eve, which means it’s time to listen to my favorite New Year’s Eve song and thank god that 2013 is almost over. Hope your celebrations are happy, safe and joyful. You are gonna make it through this year if it kills you.

Magic. Spending Movie Marketing Money On Typhoon Relief

I have a pro-crush on Casey Neistat. He travels the world living life to the fullest under the guise of making beautiful videos. What makes me love him even more is when he does this not for himself, but others. If you haven’t bumped into this story on the Internet already, it is pretty amazing. Casey Neistat spent $25,000 of 20th Century Fox’s marketing money for ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’ on Philippines typhoon relief. Even better is that Fox got back every pennies worth in promotion as this video now has over 1 million views on YouTube and has been picked up by some major press. Touche 20th Century Fox, Touche.

Lil BUB Yule LOG

Need to set the holiday mood? You could find yourself a plain old boring (though still magical) yule log to toss onto your screen of choice OR you could maximize the experience with not only a fire but an adorable kitten purring and falling asleep next to it. Too cute!

Christmas Day As Told By Your Favorite Hollywood Directors

I’m normally not one for the whole same story seven different ways thing, but I found this parody of Hollywood directors styles to be spot on. The Wes Anderson and Scorsese Christmas days made me giggle. So formulaic, so true!
