Kids – no matter how much you’ll hate it now, you should take the time to learn a musical instrument.
Web Watch doesn’t care if it’s the piano, accordion, guitar, or marimba (heck, Jimmy Fallon and The Roots play music using plastic instruments, and that stuff sounds GOOD). The key here is that you should be able to play something – anything.
How many times have you clicked over to watch a video your buddy sent you, only to find yourself clicking around and around at other random clips you’ve never seen before, until the next thing you know you’ve wasted your entire lunch hour and haven’t even left your desk?
As you get closer to the birth of your new baby, you may start to wonder whether you should stick with a name from one of those baby books, or whether you should go off the beaten path and name your child after, let’s say, your favorite character.
Some people have done this successfully, such as Penn Jillette of Penn & Teller who (with his wife’s blessing, we assume) decided to name his daughter Moxie Crimefighter. Who can’t say that a crimefighter isn’t a favorite character somewhere along the way?
But let’s say that you have more personal favorites from the world of books, games, food products, or other marketing. Why wouldn’t you want to name your child after one of those characters… if ONLY YOU KNEW WHAT THEIR REAL NAMES WERE?!?!?
It’s a tired comedian point of view: nobody can ever understand the fast-food worker at the other end of the drive thru order speaker.
The order comes back mumbled, they never get anything right when you order at the drive thru. You’re always stuck behind the mom with the 14 different orders for each member of the baseball team in her minivan (along with 14 different payments for each one).
Bands are always trying to figure out what the “next big thing” can be in making their music videos more interesting and engaging with their fans.
You could do the same thing (concert video) that everyone else does, or you could work outside of your comfort zone and do something a bit different — both in film style as well as music style. Why lipsync when you can play live in a unique venue?
The Internet has been around for a really long time.
Truth is, kids that are just graduating high school and heading off to college today have never known a life when the Internet wasn’t a daily part of their lives. Sure, accessing it may have gotten a bit easier over the years, but it’s always been there for them
And it’s been an even longer time that WEB WATCH has been sharing Internet sites and interesting stuff online for our readers — so yeah, the Internet has come a long, long way since 1994.
But how different is it now versus what it was like before?
Maybe we need to step into our Time Machine and head back to 1994 to see the TOP 7 THINGS THAT PEOPLE USED THE INTERNET FOR.
Parents everwhere struggle with listening to that old child-friendly music over and over, trying to find ways to stop going mad.
Maybe it’s not the song that’s the problem, but the way that it’s presented that’s the issue. Maybe if you were able to take one of those ever-popular children’s songs that you absolutely couldn’t hear one more time, and heard what it would sound like when done in the style of the music of your generation (whatever generation you are from, that is).
Well, perhaps not for the person leaving them – but for the person receiving them? Hilarious.
Now, the ones that get posted onto the Internet may or may not be staged. They may or may not be fake. Ones that include a note of “hey, leave me a message at ###” are almost definitely fake, one would think.
Some people don’t venture far from their own personal comfort zone when it comes to trying new foods. It’s why any FOOD CHALLENGE episode of any SURVIVOR season is always so much fun, as we watch people who are much hungrier than they normally would be throw their inhibitions away to get something – anything – into their stomachs.
