Kids today, am I right? With their hip-hop phones and their smart watches and those shoes with the wheels on them! When I was their age things were different. Work was harder, food tasted better, the Red Socks were still cursed. Oh, it was a golden era. These kids don't realize how good they have it. When I was young and I wanted to watch something I had to find the remote, turn the TV on and hope it happened to be playing. The youths of today can just pull out whatever device they want wherever they happen to be and watch whichever episode of Spongebob appeals to them. No good punks.

You Know, For Kids!
(Dude, nobody is gonna get a Hudsucker Proxy reference...)
Everyone has regrets in their life, whether it be letting that special someone walk out of your life, or letting that extra burrito into your stomach. Riley Rewind examines the possibilities that exist if you could go back and fix a few of the small things you regret - which our heroine, Riley (Anna Akana) has the mysterious ability to do. However, side effects include nosebleeds, headaches, ominously shaky cameras, and Concerned Gay Best Friends (“Jay” - Lamar Legend). Consult with a physician to decide if Rewinding is right for you.
Convos With My 2-Year-Old
The world loves kids – they’re adorable, they’re our future, and I have it on good authority that they say the darnedest things. But, what if all of that joy and humor that spewed from those chubby-cheeked faces were taken out of context – were, in fact, to come from the mouth of a grown man? This is the premise of Convos With My 2-Year-Old, and the results are predictably hilarious . . . and surprisingly disturbing. By removing the veneer of youth and innocence, and having unfiltered, surreal thoughts strung together by dead pan actor (and co-Director) David Milchard, Coco the toddler stands revealed for what she truly is: a super villain.
Tweet: The Series
I still remember getting my first cell phone. I was a junior in high school and I thought it was stupid. This was still in the early days of the cell, mind you (Yes, I'm that old). It was a heavy, black Motorola flip phone. All it did was make a receive calls, and, since the plans were extremely expensive, I wasn't even allowed to use it for that. It was basically an expensive clock that took up half my pocket and that I had to keep remembering to plug in. It was pretty annoying, but at least it wasn't haunted.
Pop Star High
Todrick Hall should be glad he never won American Idol. It might have been a dead end for him. Instead, he’s become a prolific and accomplished YouTuber, composer, choreographer, writer, director, actor, well - you get the idea. In Pop Star High Hall has created a wonderfully entertaining series that displays all his many talents.
My Lupine Life
So when I was asked to do this review, I was really excited. Team Jacob here and a big fan of Michael J. Fox, so I was ready for some awesome werewolf action. What I didn't realise was that this was WebVee Guide's attempt to discretely let me know about the growing number of supernatural creatures trying to survive human life, as they learn to change into their beastly selves. Having recently found out that I am a vampire dragon living with an angel (by using the Monstrometer iOS app, which genetic werewolf Louis Pine himself uses in his vlogs), I was ready to listen and learn from Louis's story.
My Ghost Sister and Me
It’s easy to be cynical and to scoff. Put all of that aside when you watch My Ghost Sister and Me. Jason O’connell has created a sweet little story, and when you understand how it came about, you can’t help but like his show.
Video Game High School
When first assigned Video Game High School, I was a bit worried. Then it dawned on me and by “dawned on me”, I mean that my editor told me, after I expressed apprehension about the piece, that he wanted to challenge me. As someone who rarely games or keeps up with it at all, honestly, I was rather nervous of how ignorant I might come off. Soon after, I had a second dawn and this one had risen all on its own. A writer is in absolute heaven while writing about topics of interest or know-how; however, it is also their duty to research so thoroughly that the writer can, well… fake it, too. On that note, I accepted the assignment with a new outlook.
Ruby Skye P.I.
The internet isn't a safe place. It's informative, it's fun, but it isn't particularly trustworthy. A pretty high percentage of online content is entirely inappropriate for anybody under 18. Content for kids is typically relegated to cutesy, cartoony sites run by companies like Disney and Nickelodeon. These sites are full of simplistic games and pandering cartoons, the intent of which are to keep our kids distracted from everything going on on the other side of the fence. It doesn't take Dr. Ian Malcolm to tell you that this system doesn't entirely work.
The Haunting of Sunshine Girl
Back in the dark ages when I was growing up - I’m talking pre-internet, pre-cable, pre-all night movies - during sleepovers we either perused the parental bookshelves for sexy passages or told ghost stories. Scaring ourselves silly with ouija board messages from the beyond provided many hours of amusement. Things have not changed all that much in the intervening years - kids still like to turn down the lights and scare each other with tales of the paranormal. The Haunting of Sunshine Girl is perfect entertainment for a sleepover - just spooky enough without being so terrifying as to cause nightmares.
Oh to live on Pancake Mountain with the barkers and the colored balloons. You can't be twenty on Pancake Mountain...actually, you can be, and you should probably be even older than that if you want to have any chance of recognizing any of the celebrity cameos in this absurdly wacky “kids show.”
“Why did I make a web series? Well I wanted to see how to lose five hundred thousand dollars on the web.” says Joe Thomas.
Joe is the creator, writer and director of the hit web series Johnny Dynamo. He is sitting in a room in Memphis, Tennessee with 3 of his actors, chatting with me on speakerphone instead of what he actually wants to be doing: filming.
I am sitting on my couch about 1000 miles away, struggling to keep up with the fast-paced and boisterous conversation going on in that room. Sitting with Joe are Jonathan Everett, an original cast member on the show, and two new additions: Terry Kiser (one of those actors with an instantly recognizable face. You may remember him as “Bernie” from Weekend at Bernie's) and Tommy “Tiny” Lister (another very recognizable man, probably best known for playing neighborhood bully “Deebo” in Friday). They are all clearly quite fond of one another, and spend most of the interview just trying to make each other laugh.
