So I've been keeping a running list of the best little videos I've seen online over the past year... some really, really good/funny/thought-provoking things... and of course now I can't find the notebook I wrote it in. I have many notebooks going at once—not unlike giant post-it-notes I leave all over everywhere—which doesn't really say much for my organizational skills, but it is what it is. Since my deadline for these best-of posts is Oscar night, I will simply recreate as much as I can from memory and add the rest later if I ever find the right notebook : ) Pop these out to get rid of Typepad's suddenly annoying margin cut-off.
1. $13,238.86 Left in a NYC Taxi by Casey Neistat
I can't get enough Casey Neistat videos (remember? He of the Neistat Brothers show on HBO?) I recently read that his largest fan base comes from the 14-24 year old boy demographic. HMPH. Whatever. He's a scrapbooker through and through. I save watching his videos for when I need a five minute mood boost.
2. Is Instagram the Best Thing to Ever Happen to Photography? by PBS Idea Channel
I love this quirky Idea Channel from PBS that I actually figured out how to do the subscribing thing on YouTube. I am not really a YouTube user, unless someone specifically points out something I should see over there. And then I watch it repeatedly.
3. Kid Snippets: Basketball Class by Bored Shorts TV
hahahahahahaha. That's what we say about this.
4. Cookie Monster's Share It Maybe by Sesame Street
I won't tell you how many times this was watched in our house this past year. Many, many, many times. As many as the panda sneeze in 2007.
5. The Christmas Chicken by the Pershey Family
Hee. That Genevieve.
There are more, I know there are... sigh. But, enjoy these for now : )
