It's Time To Cry: A Group Of 5th Grade Boys Come Together To Show A Bullied Student Lots Of Love
These Kids Will Restore Your Faith In Humanity

A group of 5th grade boys at Williams Intermediate School in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, who call themselves the “Band Of Brothers,” have pretty much just restored my faith in humanity. These little boys are so kind and loving that they almost make you forget how cruel kids can be. When the “Band of Brothers” heard that other kids were picking on Danny Keefe, the six-year-old water boy for the local Pee Wee football team, they did more than come to his defense.  Keep reading »

Even Better Than The Original?

Even if you’re sick of Lorde’s “Royals,” you HAVE to watch this amazing a capella version of the song by Florida State University’s AcaBelles. It’s beautiful and haunting and just so well done. Also? Someone needs to give that lead singer a recording contract, like, now. [YouTube]

It’s Time To Cry: Watch Unsuspecting Families Get Their Holiday Groceries Paid For

Watch Familes Get Their Groceries Paid For
"Are you serious? Are you serious?"

Most YouTube pranks involve smug bros pretending to cheat on their girlfriends, but this one has a much kinder agenda: a YouTube prankster set up a hidden camera at a grocery store to capture the reactions of families as they were told they wouldn’t have to pay for their huge holiday grocery bills. There’s actually no prank about it — the groceries really were paid for and many tears were shed. (The video is sponsored by an energy supplement, so just ignore the awkward infomercial at the end, but I swear the first four minutes are worth it.) [Laughing Squid]

Puppies Learning To Howl
You can do it, little buddy! Use that big voice!

This compilation of teeny tiny puppies trying out their shaky little howls KILLED ME. I watched it 50 times and now I am dead. Send flowers to my parents, and then hit play to join me in my cuteness-induced early grave. [YouTube via Laughing Squid]

Can Batkid save Gotham? Of course he can!

Last week we watched with glee as Batkid saved San Francisco (AKA Gotham) from dastardly villains and made the whole country cry happy tears. Relive the drama and intrigue in this movie trailer version of that amazing day, titled — what else? — “Batkid Rises.” It’s a good reminder that, as Batman himself once said, “A hero can be anyone.” [YouTube]

Doggie-Manicure
Gremlin gets pampered for her owner's big day!

In order to prep to be the Dog of Honor at her owners’ wedding, princess of the house Gremlin got her paws did. Dog manicures interest me very much. But I find myself far more interested in the back story about Gremlin and Mariesa’s “strained relationship” and the dog’s illness. What happened!? I need all the dogssip.

My preliminary research informed me that Gremlin’s owners, Mariesa and Chris are a newlywed couple with eight rescue dogs — Gremlin, Meatball, Money, The Stig, Moses, Tejas, Quinn, and Sammy –who donate all proceeds from their YouTube videos to pay shelter dogs’ vet bills to help them become more adoptable and find their forever homes. OK. Slay me in the heart. I have to go back and watch all the “Life In The Doghouse” videos now. [YouTube via Jezebel]

It’s Time To Cry: Homeless Family Gets A Makeover

It's Time To Cry: Homeless Family Gets A Makeover
Haircuts, pizza, and much, much more...

If you’re having trouble getting in the Thanksgiving spirit, this video will get you there quickly. Kyle Oreffice and Josh Gibson, arbiters of random acts of kindness, took their giving to another echelon when they heard about a down-on-their luck Utah family living in a homeless shelter. Kyle and Josh gave parents Reggie and Don (who both lost their jobs a year ago) and 4-year-old daughter Heavenly the surprise of their lives when they showed up to give them a head-to-toe makeovers,  professional career counseling, a two-week stay at a hotel, groceries, toys for Heavenly and wait for it…jobs! It’s not as flashy as Batkid’s Gotham City transformation, but just as life-affirming. [The Daily Dot]

Watch Bjork Explain How Television Works

The World According To Bjork
Watch Bjork Explain How Television Works
"This looks like a city. "

Most of us would look at the inside of a television set and see a mess of wires. But the rare, exotic creature Bjork looks inside a TV and sees a miniature city with houses and elevators. In this vintage video, the singer explains how television used to scare her because an Icelandic poet told her some screwed up stuff about what happens when you watch it (the program you’re watching becomes about you!?). Then she read a Danish book and found out the “scientifical truth” what was really going on in that tiny city full of wires. And that my friends, is why you shouldn’t let poets lie to you. I want to carry Bjork in my pocket all day and consult her about all the mundane things that happen, so she can make thinks like brushing my teeth and riding the subway seem magical and transformative. Her accent alone is enough to do the trick. [The Atlantic]

Meet Your New Muse: Naked Dancing Man

Meet Your New Muse: Naked Dancing Man
So bizarre, yet so wonderful!

This naked, dancing man is like a grownup version of that weird baby on Ally McBeal — unsettling and mesmerizing at the same time. But there is more to why a computer-generated man dancing around to an upbeat synth soundtrack is so captivating. Naked, dancing man is the animated embodiment of personal fulfillment and freedom. He was created by graphic animator for the movie “Tron,” David Lewandowski. At first, working on “Tron” seemed like a dream job, but David found that it soon turned out to be soul sucking.   Keep reading »
