Friday Funnies: I’m Reading A Book

My kids love YouTube.

It kind of scares me, actually. I’m glad YouTube has safety filters, but I still try to stay aware of what they’re watching.

Lucky me.

I can’t tell you how many random, lame videos I’ve been subjected to. You should feel sorry for me.

One of their favorite YouTube sensations is Julian Smith. If you haven’t heard of him, he’s funny, a little odd, and sometimes not allowed in our house. But…Janette Rallison posted about one of his videos this week. It’s a song my kids have sung around the house, but I hadn’t seen yet.

It’s funny. Weird, but funny (which describes all five of my kids). If you love books and have a strange sense of humor like us, you might like it, too. 

And here’s one more video that made me smile this week, not because it’s funny, but because it was just sooo cool.

This video comes from Eclipse, an awesome mens A’Capella group. It’s their version of Taylor Swift’s “22”. A great love song for those of us who need reminders to keep dating after marriage.  

  • Maybe I should have started with that video. The two are nothing alike. Sorry. Random.
  • As I rewatched both videos for this post, my kids came running up to my computer to see them again. They’re crazy.

The best part, though, was last night my kids were playing the Wii, and I happened to glance over from the kitchen. For some reason I’ve yet to figure out, the 5yo and 16yo were wearing the exact same glasses as Eclipse wore in the video. Not sure where they found them, or why they needed them to play Wii Sports Resort, but it made me laugh. :)

  1. That guy’s face on the Reading a Book video is so crazy intense and scary. Makes you laugh. And I love what Eclipse can do, how it can sound like instruments are in the background (pretty cool).

    1. One of his videos, he’s wearing a wedding ring, and my kids commented, “Who would marry him? He always seems so angry.” I laughed. And Eclipse has so many awesome songs. It’s great. I’ve always been a huge fan of A’Cappella music. They amaze me.

  2. I have to agree with you, I have been subjected to watching more Julian Smith videos then any mom should be. Sometimes he is funny, but often I find that I am not laughing near as much as my kids are.
