Turkey brining, how to carve a turkey: Alton Brown

The thought of Thanksgiving dinner coming up and people having to figure out how to carve the bird reminds me of two extremely helpful things: The baseline cutting trick, as demonstrated by Alton Brown in the video above from his Food Network show Good Eats. This...

Pomplamoose: Music duo going viral via social media

Early yesterday morning, I heard an interesting On The Media special about the future of the music industry. Long story short, it's floundering. Back then, I had never heard of Pomplamoose. Update: Pomplamoose show Beginning January 18, 2011, a live webcast show --Hey...

Apollo 11: NASA video of first moon walk resurfaces

hen astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon 40 years ago this Monday (that's Buzz Aldrin pictured above), I was nine years old and absolutely transfixed by the entire mission. I had several plastic Revell models of the various...

Pet Lions at Summerfest in Milwaukee

Pet Lions at Summerfest in Milwaukee

Here's just a very brief sample of Pet Lions' set at Summerfest. The video was recorded on our Flip Ultra HD, and clearly I'm not the Martin Scorsese of iMovie yet. Last year, Summerfest was kind enough to present us with an outstanding full day of music on the...

Justine Henin singing, acting, cooking on reality show

The YouTube video clip above comes via Straight Sets, the NYTimes.com tennis blog. It's former tennis superstar Justine Henin singing a duet with Belgian balladeer Salvatore Adamo. There was no explanation there, but a little Googling reveals that back in May, Henin —...

Obama inauguration, complete text and video: MSNBC

The video clip above is pretty amazing — and not just because of the sweet ushanka worn by George Herbert Walker Bush, or the fact that President Obama included the "pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off" reference that I suggested eleven days ago. No, the amazing...

Obama inauguration: Breathtaking images

Obama inauguration: Breathtaking images

We're ditching the commentators on the various networks and watching C-SPAN's inauguration coverage today on TV. Meanwhile, over on the computer, I am getting blown away by the astounding seven feeds of HD video streaming from CBS2Chicago.com. Breathtaking.

Snow in Wisconsin: December 19, 2008

Snow in Wisconsin: December 19, 2008

This was the view outside my window at about 9:20 this morning. I think I'm going to send it to Charles Osgood and ask him to use it as the last minute of this week's CBS Sunday Morning. The snow has since stopped, so now we're...

‘The Digg Reel’

Here at the Mark Czerniec Internet Testing Laboratories, we like The Digg Reel. As a matter of fact, we have secretly been enjoying The Digg Reel since — well, since September 6, which is when we discovered Miro, the thing we use to download and watch The Digg Reel....

SNL skits: Fred Armisen, ‘Obama Plays It Cool’

SNL skits: Fred Armisen, ‘Obama Plays It Cool’

Fred Armisen was jeered pretty roundly when he started playing Barack Obama on SNL, but I always thought he had keyed in on several quirky traits, and that the parody just keeps getting better and better. Last night's "Obama Plays It Cool" piece was his best yet....

Vimeo: HD video on the Web

We heard a story on NPR's Weekend Edition yesterday from Dallas Morning News technology reporter Victor Godinez. He was touting Vimeo, a video-sharing Web site which, unlike the others, offers high-definition. According to Wikipedia, Vimeo has been around since...

Canon PowerShot A570 IS ordered

Canon PowerShot A570 IS ordered

I finally bit the bullet and bought a compact digital camera this afternoon — the Canon PowerShot A570 IS I am the exact opposite of an impulse buyer. I tend to fret and study and postpone for months before purchasing anything, so this is a landmark day of both relief...

Christopher Walken cooking Chicken with Pears

Christopher Walken cooking Chicken with Pears

Well, this is right in my wheelhouse! I watch a lot of chef shows and cooking TV, and I love strange Internet finds. There is a YouTube playlist out there intended to hold my food and cooking favorites, but there are only two videos on it so far. I never imagined...

Joseph Campbell: Power of Myth, Hero’s Journey

Joseph Campbell: Power of Myth, Hero’s Journey

Follow your bliss. If you do follow your bliss, you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while waiting for you, and the life you ought to be living is the one you are living. When you can see that, you begin to meet people who are in the field...

Erik Mongrain:  “AirTap!”

Erik Mongrain: “AirTap!”

I just stumbled across this clip on YouTube while monkeying with stuff on my Google homepage. It's Erik Mongrain, from Montreal. I've never heard of him before, but I imagine we'll be seeing more of him from now on.

Blogging documentary: Chuck Olsen’s ‘Blogumentary’

Jennifer, whom I don't personally know but who sends me links fairly regularly, emailed me last Tuesday about an item at Google Video. Expecting to find a short clip only a minute or two in length, I was surprised to see instead that blogger Chuck Olsen has posted his...

Josh Rouse: ‘Quiet Town’ music video

Josh Rouse: ‘Quiet Town’ music video

The first time I heard Josh Rouse was when "Dressed Up Like Nebraska" was played on the TV show Ed a few years back. It impressed me enough that I Googled the lyrics, determined the artist's name, and bought the song via iTunes. I still love it. More recently, when I...

Sound of a chipmunk: Weird chipmunk noise

The chipmunk noise in this video was recorded on our front doorstep a couple of years ago, but we have the same situation in the backyard today. After weeks of air conditioned cabin fever during the Heat Wave of 2011, the windows are finally open here at the...

Hummingbird moth (Hemaris thysbe)

Watch this video in full-screen, 720p mode. The Hummingbird Moth is difficult to see at first, but it comes closer during the second minute of the clip. The first time I saw one of these, my mind briefly went into a strange Twilight Zone mode because I couldn't place...

Jackson Browne, ‘The Barricades of Heaven’

bove is a YouTube video of Jackson Browne performing "The Barricades of Heaven" at the Glastonbury Festival in southwest England in June of 2010. The song — originally released on Browne's 1996 album Looking East — has been my constant earworm...

Blizzard of 2011: Snow storm video, Racine, Wisconsin

Here's our YouTube video of the Blizzard of 2011 as we experienced it here in Racine, Wisconsin. 23.5 inches of snow fell here from Tuesday evening until Wednesday morning (February 1st and 2nd), the greatest snowfall anywhere from this storm. If we sound dead tired,...
