This week’s VOW comes from my cousin, Phil Schneider, who is visiting me from New York. Everyone go subscribe to his YouTube channel and bug him to post more videos.
A new Simon’s Cat! Enjoy 🙂
Have you ever been in love with a couple; where you totally had a crush on the girl, but you wanted just as bad to be the guy? I think that’s how I feel about Jack Conte and Nataly Dawn of Pomplamoose. I tend to make sweeping generalizations regarding how certain experiences rank in my life, but this time, I can confidently say I have never enjoyed watching someone make music as much as I do watching these guys. I honestly don’t think I have the vocabulary to express how it moves me, so I’ll just post their latest VideoSong, and let you decide how it makes you feel.
This week’s video features a very energetic Asian man dancing. The original title of this video, as it is posted on YouTube, is “Sexy Fail – Fat Dancing Guy: WARNING: Very Disturbing”. But I don’t like that title. I’m pretty sure he’s not trying to be sexy, so FAIL on the usage of “fail”.
The other thing that bothers me is the perception that this guy is fat. He clearly doesn’t have 8% body fat, but he’s far from being blubber. In fact, he looks pretty solid and healthy to me. The kind of guy I’d like to rub sesame oil all over and… oh.. nevermind.
The point is, here’s a guy who is enjoying himself and just being silly and for some reason he gets undeservedly branded as fat and unattractive. Mr. Dancing Asian Man, I support you, and I appreciate you for who you are.
So without further ado, I give you Happy Dancing Energetic Asian Man:
If you can’t get enough of Rachael Ray’s goofy faces, pointless anecdotes, and irritating olive oil abbreviations, then you’re gonna love this special condensed episode of 30 Minute Meals. “Rachael” shows you how to put a unique spin on a tasty classic to make a savory snack that’s sure to be a hit with the kids!
I’m sure I’m a few years late to the party, but I just stumbled upon this video of Italian entertainer, Adriano Celetano performing a song called “Prisencolinensinainciusol”. The words are complete gibberish and mean nothing, but are meant to sound like what English sounds like to non-English speakers.
The song itself is quite the head bopper and toe tapper. Enjoy!
Sorry I missed a week posting the “Video of the Week,” but since no one really reads my blog, I’m not too broken up about it. This week I’m showcasing the late, great George Carlin in one of his best comedy performances of all time, “Jammin’ in New York.”
This HBO special aired in 1992, the year I graduated from High School, and believe me when I say, my freshman year of college, I watched this nearly 100 times. George knocks it out of the park with classic routines about the War in the Gulf, Universal Similarities, The Airlines, and The Environment. Enjoy!
UPDATE: Well looks like they took this video down. Sad face.
By the way, if you’re looking for a unique gift for someone who likes new music, you can download all of Jack Conte’s music at www.JackConteMusic.com.

This week’s video is from Josh Green doing a cover of “Use Somebody” by Kings of Leon. I found him on YouTube last year, and his cover of Matchbox 20’s “Back 2 Good” really inspired me to continue learning how to play the guitar.
Right now he only has a few videos posted at www.youtube.com/ousooners21, but if everyone subscribes to his channel, maybe he’ll start posting more.
Hahahacomedy.com’s very first Video of the Week is Beat the Horse by Pomplamoose. They’re a band I stumbled upon on YouTube. Personally, I think they’re super talented and original, and very fun to watch. Pomplamoose is made up of lead singer, Nataly Dawn and musician Jack Conte. Be sure to check out the rest of their music at http://www.youtube.com/pomplamoosemusic. Enjoy!
