January 12, 2015

If you’re a parent, grandparent, or caregiver, then you’re probably all too familiar with the “where do babies come from?” talk that you had to have with your kids or grandkids at some point. It’s awkward, it’s funny, and now it’s been captured on camera as a site called The Cut filmed parents trying to break down the logistics of the birds and the bees for their kids.

There are plenty of cringe-worthy moments, and also some really funny ones. Click here to watch, laugh, and reflect on your own similar conversation as these kids get their first lesson on the facts of life.

Traveling for the Holidays? Want Some Entertainment? This is Exactly What You Need.

Posted by Lauren the Web Girl on December 19, 2014

Are you traveling to go see family or friends over the holidays? In need of some entertainment, preferably the kind that requires headphones so you can drown out chatty airplane seat neighbors or fighting kids? Then you’ll want to check out a podcast called “Serial.” It’s a new phenomenon that has people absolutely hooked, and if you love true crime dramas and great reporting, you’ll be just as fascinated.

Here’s the description of the podcast from the “Serial” website:

On January 13, 1999, Adnan Syed was a hurt and vengeful ex-boyfriend who carried out a premeditated murder. Or he was a bewildered bystander, framed for a crime he could never have committed. After 15 months of reporting, we take out everything we’ve got – interviews and documents and police reports – we shake it all out, and we see what sticks.

“Serial” is a spinoff from the creators of “This American Life” , so if you’re a fan of that podcast, you’ll probably enjoy this too. If you want to get started, check out Episode 1 here. Warning: you’ll probably become addicted. But in the best way possible.

The Perfect Video To Get You Ready for Thanksgiving

November 24, 2014

You may be familiar with the Holderness family. They’re the impossibly put together clan that puts out parody songs such as “Baby Got Class” and “Xmas Jammies.” Now they’re back, just in time for Thanksgiving, with this song “All About That Baste.” It’s a parody of a popular song “All About That Bass” but we think this version is even better, especially as you prep for the holiday. Check it out below:
