    Barnaby Dixon: Get a Load of the New Puppeteer on the Block (Video)

    One of the cool things about YouTube culture is that all the old forms of entertainment have come back in a new way – shadowplays are back, impressions are back, ventriloquism is back, basically, vaudeville is back. That includes puppetry, and since it’s Friday afternoon and there’s a giant hurricane barreling towards Texas it’s as […]

    Facebook Watch: Facebook Testing New Video Platform

    If you’ve been waiting for an opportunity to bust out that brilliant web series concept, Facebook recently announced its own video platform designed for users to do just that.

    World’s Largest Super Soaker from Mark Rober (Video)

    Just in time for summer, YouTube engineer and mad genius Mark Rober has created a machine that he calls the World’s Largest Super Soaker, and honestly, even if I wanted to dispute this claim I wouldn’t, lest I end up on the wrong end of its life-destroying hydro-power.

    YouTube TV: YouTube Rolls Out Support for Live TV (Video)

    I haven’t had cable for a few years, and one of the things I miss the most is being able to watch live TV.  Livestreams online just don’t have the same excitement as good old-fashioned live television programming. Which might be one reason YouTube is getting into the live TV business with a new subscription […]

YouTube‘s top pop-culture analyst KaptainKristian did one as well.  It’s a seasonally appropriate and extremely catchy illustration of how children’s author Dr. Seuss made reading fun for generations of kids.

    ‘The Death of Video Game Box Art’ (Video)

    Art forms seem to be dying all the time these days, usually followed by the revelation that the art form in question is not really dead, if you know where to seek it out in its vital form. The latest art form to be declared dead on arrival, however, appears to actually be dead, at […]

    ‘Citadel': Massive K’NEX Ball Machine Unveiled (Video)

    Sight unseen, I would probably assume that naming something you made out of K’NEX, “Citadel,” was a little bit pretentious. But now that I’ve watched the 15-minute showcase for this massive K’NEX structure, I actually think the title could stand to be fancied up a little – Crystal K’Nex Palace, maybe, or Dr. Manhattan’s K’NEX […]

So far, there are new versions of “Clint Eastwood,” “19-2000,″ and “Feel Good Inc,” with more reportedly on the way. The extent to which […]
