It’s been a long week everyone, but guess what! the long WEEKEND it almost here!! lets celebrate! but before we do, lets get rid of all that pent up anger from the past few days. Come on everyone, grab your nearest computer and go BUCK WILD! wooooo! violence! rock on!!!!


Want to see a video that little to no one has seen before?  This site is pretty cool, it showcases the least watched (cool) videos on youtube and makes them feel important. I would just like to say if we were on youtube, we would never be on this site because we get like 7zillion hits a day.  No biggie.

Check it out here


Rita and I were chatting the other day about Eminem and Rihanna’s latest music video.  She was all, that bitch (Megan Fox) be crazy.  Anyways then she asked me if I knew what was the first music video to ever be played on air.  I responded “Why yes, Rita, I am a wealth of knowledge.”

The first music video to air (on MTV, August 1, 1981) was “Video Killed the Radio Star” by the Buggles.

Check it out!


New section alert!  Rita has hand picked her favourite throwback videos.  We will be featuring a new one every day…or atleast when we remember.

Here is one sent to us by an avid reader.  It is a kids TV show from the 70’s and early 80’s filled with sexual innuendos.

If you have a throwback video you want featured on our blog let us know!


Okay big news. We are officially the coolest people ever.  We’ve decided that since we are growing in popularity (1  trillion views a day, no biggie) that we should start interviewing Canadian Celebrities who we think are pretty awesome. And The Arkells front man, Max Kerman, was the first to respond! Thanks Max.

The Arkells formed in Hamilton a while back (formerly known as Charlemagne), and have been rising in popularity since the release of their kick-ass first album, Jackson Square, in 2008.  And to top it off, they won a Juno award for Best “New group of the Year” this past May. We were lucky enough to catch them at the Burlington Sound of Music Fest where they put on a stellar performance, followed by an encore of one of my all time favourite motown songs “Aint too proud to beg”.

So in short, we think they are great and you should too!

My childhood was filled with candy, friends, puppets, sports and mostly egghead videos.  Seriously if you’ve never done an egghead video it’s not too late.


Alex says that this video is going to change your life. He says that you are going to cry.

I didn’t cry but I thought it was really well done. Alex says (but I think he took this directly from a website) “This is a video that was submitted in a contest by a 20-year old.   The contest was titled “u @ 50″  by  AARP. It won second place. When they showed it, everyone in the room was awe-struck and broke into spontaneous applause.  So simple and yet so brilliant. Do take a minute to watch it.”
