The beauty of the Internet is that you can never be bored during your time spent there. There are so many different things to do. You can obviously search for a variety of things, but you can also check email, you can go to Facebook/Twitter/Myspace, you can play games, you can plan a vacation. But you know what else you can do? Watch videos. Yes, you can.
And I’m not talking watching your favorite TV shows on www.hulu.com or their respective television network’s website. I’m talking about hardcore nerd videos. These are videos that you can’t watch on your television (unless of course you access Youtube or their website via your TV). These are videos that are part of a series, that you can subscribe to if you feel so inclined. Just like your favorite season of Law and Order: SVU, you’ll always have something intriguing to view (minus the Sunday marathons of course – these series don’t offer that.)
Some really popular ones in our home, unfortunately, are Call of Duty videos. Those are playing at many different times during the day. You can basically just search COD on Youtube and come up with more than you’ll ever need, with more being added constantly. But I have also learned that people earn a lot of money by making videos of themselves playing games and creating a video series from that. Don’t tell your children this if you desire them to ever go to college.
Another popular one (was more popular before, but still a fave) is Diggnation – revision3.com/diggnation/. They like to talk about computers/gaming/other things. I haven’t watched it in a really long time, but when I did watch it, it was amusing. And with that comes – The Digg Reel – revision3.com/diggreel.
Half of our family really likes Gary Vaynerchuk’s Wine TV – tv.winelibrary.com/. I have not yet watched this, but the other half says that it’s very informative and interesting. Check it out.
Another one that the other half advocates for is Scam School – revision3.com/scamschool. I’m sure, with a title like that, that it’s appropriate for all ages…
And, in honor of our favorite teenagers, you have to tune in to these guys – www.youtube.com/user/desandnate. Not only do they have really cool hair, but they are really funny as well. Just watch them with an open mind and a good sense of humor, and you’ll be good to go.
Bundle up and keep warm today – it’s really cold out there!
