On November 9, 1934 the Cosmos blessed our Earth with Carl Edward Sagan. In 1939, at the age of five he was taken to the World’s Fair in New York where he was inspired by the exhibition “America of Tomorrow.” From that point on, Carl Sagan would remain both curious about the universe we live in, but also fabulously “in awe” of our world and our Cosmos. He published over 200 scientific papers and authored 20 books. And while those are remarkable feats for a kid born to Russian immigrant workers in New Jersey, I believe he should be remembered most as the best 20th century example of a scientist (and outspoken atheist) who embraced the awesomeness, beauty and elegancy of our Universe. And luckily for us, he shared that passion with all of us.

So, today, on the anniversary of his birth, I had to share one of my favorite autotune songs of all time.

Each year we are privileged to get a year’s worth of political review from our friends at JibJab. This year it isn’t as hilarious as their video from 2009, but then maybe 2010 just wasn’t as funny as 2009.

Enjoy!

Here is another of our favorite funny Christmas videos. This one is from last year and stars all of those lovable pets from Youtube edited so they appear to be singing this Christmas song.

Happy Holidays!

Our dear friend, Crudbump (Drew from toothpastefordinner), serves up the holiday cheer with this seasonal ditty, based on his children’s book by the same name.

And for anyone not smart enough to figure this out via the title, I’ve included the oversized NSFW tag.

It hardly seems like three years ago that 2girls-1cup went viral. Ah, the fond memories of showing it off to all your friends and seeing them react the same way you did. Youtube was awash in these reaction videos for months. Joe Rogan from Fear Factor had one. Heck, even Kermit the Frog had one.

On the three year anniversary of this wonderful gift, we’d like to offer this compilation video provided by Deconmedia and edited by Jason Goldwatch.

Sorry for the huge NSFW banner, but since someone drops the F-bomb, we have to include it. :)

What did young blossoming geeks do before iPhones and G4? We watched TechTV and become first-hand witnesses to this classic rise… and fail…of ancient technology. Yes, kids, I was there, back before Droid phones and Steampunk we gathered ’round the glowing box to watch perky young people and old cussing historians tell of one of a kind technological treasures…and then crush them. Seriously, I saw this on live TV, then used my landline to alert a friend.
