I'm not so great at keeping up with "Internet Things" as Auntie Ninang Katherine calls them because she's even worse at paying attention to honey badgers and PopTart cats.
Your dad keeps up with Internet Things like it's his job, well, because it sort of is. He tends to like all the People Falling on Their Faces and Cool Dance Moves kind of Internet Things. But, once in awhile he'll show me things that he thinks I'll like, that is to say: uplifting, not embarassing, political neutral, fuzzy happy space things.
There's a lot on the Internet. A lot of crap on the Internet too. And if you even dip your toe in, with the best of intentions of reading just that one story or looking at just that one squirrel meme, you can get so lost and end up wondering how you watched five hours worth of YouTube videos.
So I'm glad your daddy wades through the Internet and filters out the best for me. He's like my own personal search engine.
And I know I'm a million years late in Internet time, but I wanted to share some things that not only make me laugh, but make me feel good inside.
Did you know the Internet can do that? It can do more than just make you feel Pinterest inadequacy or viral-human-rights-jump-on-the-band-wagon excitement?
Here are some of the Internet things I like to watch when I need a little pick-me-up. Again, they're like a million Internet years old, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
1. Marcel the Shell with Shoes On
2. Mister Rogers Remixed
(And for some OG Mr. Rogers feel good, there's his theme song.)
3. Som Sabadell orchestral flash mob
4. B*tches in Bookshops
5. The Parent Rap
6. Babies Movie Trailer
(The whole movie is worth a watch, but this is good for a quick baby-fix.)
Hope something up there ^^^ put a little pep in your step this lovely Friday!
Feel free to leave a comment to share your favorite Internet Thing.
