T is for This Year

You Tube A TO Z

T is for This Year

One of the things I like best  about You Tube are some of the cover  contests that are conducted using it.  For example, at the beginning of 2015 One of my favorite artists released this song on video.


She also announced a contest asking for people sending their covers of her song in.  I watched a couple dozen of these and this one was my favorite.

S is for Schoolhouse Rock

You Tube A TO Z

S is for School House Rock

I am no expert in the history of the music video but my theory is they have 3 notable precursors

1: The Beatles Movies
2: The Monkees T.V. Show
and 3. School House Rock

For the unitiated School House Rock was a series of educational cartoons than ran in between Saturday Morning Cartoons on ABC in the 70's and 80's.  They has 5 genre's


Multiplication Rock




Grammar Rock





History Rock



Science Rock




Money Rock





These are not neccesarily my 5 favorite.  But I do like them and they are a good sampling.

R is for Responses

You Tube A TO Z

R is for Response

You Tube used to have a feature where you could make a video response and post it to another you tube video.  They have since discontinued feature but you can still find video responses to existing you tube videos.

Last year the fine folks at Blimey cow produced this video.






I then made this response not knowing that You Tube had discontinued the program.




My take on this ,which I hope you gathered ,was to use the appropriate context for each phrase to give the phrases meaning.

Q is For Quick Draw McGraw

For Q I present you with a trio of videos of one of my favorite cartoon heroes.  Quick Draw McGraw

Here is a short documentary on the feature.






El Kabong was my favorite character.  Here is a nice montage of some ka-bongs.









The Snuffle character with his reaction to dog biscuits was also a favorite.

I just love You Tube videos of cute kids.  Exspecially when those cute kids are mine.  Here is Puppy on her way to Dog Day (Where people bring their dogs to the game) at a White Sox game.  Too Precious.

You Tube A TO Z

O is for Old Televison Shows


If you are an aficionado of old television programs, like I am, You Tube, is a dream come true.  

You Tube is a treasure trove of t,v, from it's golden age to the present day.  Here is an episode of the old Panel Show What's My Line.

N is for No Hitter


You Tube A TO Z

N is for No Hitter


A baseball game can take 3-4 hours to complete.  But if all you are interested is watching all the outs it can take 5-10 minutes.  3-5 minutes if you are just looking for all the outs on one side.  When would you want to do that?  When you want to relive a no hitter.  You tube is your friend when it comes to finding those.

on April 18,2007 Mark Buehrle (see B is for Buehrle from earlier this month) pitched a no hitter for the Chicago White Sox against the Texas Ranger.  This means in his 9 innings of work no one got on base with a hit.  Former Sox player Sammy Sosa did get a walk and you can watch what Buerhle did to him.  








A no hitter when no one gets on base for any reason is called a perfect game Buerhle got one of those also.  It was 2 years later July 23, 2009 against the Tampa Bay Rays.  Since it is technically a no hitter and since I am not doing P is for Perfect Game I'll show you that one as well.  You'd be Wise to watch the 9th inning of this one.

M is for Monkees



You Tube A TO Z

M is for the Monkees



Because of the time I was born mid sixties I have no memory of life without the Monkees and I have no memory of never loving the Monkees.  If you love the Monkees like I do You Tube is a friend with many videos of past shows and hit songs.

K is for Kiss Cam



You Tube A TO Z

K is for Kiss Cam




A Kiss Cam is when at a professional sporting event the camera pans onto couples and when they see them selves on the jumbo=tron they smooch.  Sometimes things don't always happen correctly.  Take a look at a Kiss Cam portion of a Bulls Celtics Game held in Chicago.

J is for Judges


You Tube A TO Z

J is for Judges




When Veggie Tale creator Phil Vischer started a web based bible series called Jelly Telly,  he had different feautures he would rotate in.  One was a group called The Fabulous Bentley Brothers who would sing snippets  of Old Testament bible books.  The song Judges does for memorizing all the judges in the Old Testament what School House Rock did for memorizing the preamble of the constitution.  And yes that's Rhett and Link, who you may remember from F is for Facebook as the Fabulous Bentley Brothers.

I is for Ishmael United - If you can't shout saved


You Tube A TO Z

I is for Ishmael United




In 1985 I discovered a group called Ishmael United in the bargain basket of my local Christian book store. I loved the cassette and told anybody I met about it. I lent it it to a friend who lent it  to someone in his youth group who lent it  to her boyfriend. Then in perfect sitcom fashion, he broke up with her, she stopped going to youth group and I never saw the cassette again. At about the same time the cassette went out of print. Enter Youtube ,someone takes a video of one of the songs playing and it's 1985 all over again

G is for Grover

You Tube A TO Z

G is for Grover


I grew up on Sesame Street.  I mean the television show, not the actual street.  My love for all things Muppets began watching sketches like these on PBS.  Like many sesame street sketches of it's time, it starts with a usual situation and put's an educational/wacky take on it.

F is for Facebook

You Tube A TO Z
F is for Facebook

I am a big fan of the work of Rhett & Link.  Their video Facebook was one of the first things I was of theirs.  While it's true that FB has changed over the years this song still works.

E is for Embarrasing Videos


My currently  14 year old son would just assume this video was never shot.  But that didn't stop us from posting it on FB and You Tube.

You Tube A TO Z

D is for Debates
In 2015 and 2016 I watched a lot of the Presidential debates since I do not have broadcast television and also since I was not home during many of the debates I watches a lot of them through you-tube.  Todays video is from one of the 2007-2008 debates where Mike Huckabee scored big with many voters with this response.

You Tube A TO Z

C is for Change Bank

I absolutely love these "commercials" from Saturday Night Live.  Like many things from SNL I heard these quoted before I actually saw the bits.

B is for Buehrle

You Tube A TO Z

B is for Buehrle


One thing you see lots of on you tube is sports plays and commercials.    This post includes one of each.


In 2010 one of my favorite White Sox Players, Mark Buehrle  started off the season with this  phenomenal play
.








 The next year the White Sox made this epic commercial as an homage to the fantastic play using Buehrle and Sox Announcer Hawk Harrelson in cameos.

A is for Airplane




I asked my son, Spider Droid to share some of the fine points of Paper Airplane making.





Here is some footage of him teaching his method to our family 



Spider Droid turned the camera on me and walked me again through the process


I guess there's nothing more to say except the closing.
