I went looking for videos that would best fit the somber day of 17 b’Tammuz, and I went away feeling that if I embedded here one of those guy-sits-in-front-of-smartphone-camera clips, or even the better ones, I would just tire you out and you’ll never click on it to watch. So I plugged in the words […]

I’m not arguing with all the true facts being raised by Congressman Ron Paul – of course he’s right. Every single thing he’s saying makes perfect sense and should be paid attention to by our policymakers – and that’s the source of my despair. Because no one ever listens to Ron Paul. What’s the point […]

In case you’re having one of those lazy Sundays with no plans at all — it beats a lot of other things you could be watching. Also, if you haven’t seen it but were ashamed to admit it — here’s your chance to catch up. And, of course, it’s also a dynamite movie. Music by […]

Here’s an exciting 1981 news report, about how some day people will be able to download an entire newspaper and watch it with their breakfast right on their computer screen, no fuss, no fresh ink on their fingertips. Do you believe it can happen in our lifetime? Mind you, like the anchor lady says, it […]

Shalom Sesame: Seth Rogen with Elmo, word of the day: Todah. Elmo’s been in trouble recently, but still, Kevin Clash, the Elmo puppeteer who resigned amid allegations that he sexually abused underage boys, has just won three Daytime Emmy Awards for his work on “Sesame Street.” Not sure if he said: Todah.

It was fascinating to watch this discussion, between Kuwaiti Scholar Jassem Al-Mutawa, who seems like a sweetie—if you manage to look across the many cultural divides—and another scholar, on the merits of disciplining one’s spouse. If we can overcome our essential disgust with the discussion of women as objects, it is interesting to see the […]

Lenny Cohen is where I’ve been going most of my life for a reflection of my own sadness. He doesn’t lie about the human condition, he doesn’t offer false hope, heck, he doesn’t offer much hope at all. But if beauty in the face of hardship is what you’re looking for, there’s a wellspring of […]

Every morning I look for a good, clean “Old Jews Telling Jokes” joke to share with you, and most mornings I give up after a few minutes, because most of the jokes being told by these old Jews just don’t belong in a fine, Orthodox website. This one, thank God, is clean. Incidentally, I don’t […]

Who’s on First? Rabbi Steven Schwartz as “Father Mulcahy” and The Most Interesting Jewish Man in the World (Cantor Thom King) give a Purim version of a Hebrew Lesson- adapted from Rabbi Jack Moline. The acting could get better, but the jokes are well thought out. Worth the 5 minutes!

Strange, how the late Rabbi Kahane’s views have moved from the extreme right to the center in 20 years. Never mind his political agenda — while I can’t speak for anyone else, I personally could not endorse the transfer of Arabs any more than I would the transfer of Jews (although it’s interesting how those […]

Or, at least, it’s showing a hairy creature knocking over a lawn chair and taking a few sips from the pool water. Now, you may ask, what’s Jewish about Bigfoot? The answer is that there’s also a security sound recording of the same creature saying She’hakol.

An Iranian scholar argues that the entire Tom and Jerry cartoon enterprise was erected by the Jews in order to remove the shame of Europe, where they were called “dirty mice.” On the way he confuses Walt Disney (who was no big fan of Jews) with Hanna Barbera, the creators of Tom and Jerry. He […]

A European reporter asked South African MP Kenneth Meshoe to confirm that Israel is just aqs racist as his South Africa used to be under the Apartheid Laws. And the learned MP let him have it. Priceless. Thank you, 12Tribe Films for the link.

Here’s what the PepsiCo folks are getting for $2 billion. It’s a guy trying to make seltzer in his own kitchen. Now, the host really hates the product from the get go, but the kid trying out the drinks likes them. The drama unfolds. He ends up with thumbs-down on the product, which he says […]

This video was published June 3, so it’s a bit optimistic when it’s reporting on the “cleanup. ” But look at how many street cleaners are out there on one city block. It’s part of Turkey’s secret for low unemployment rates: give everyone a broom and send them out to sweep the streets and the […]

Oh, you’ll cringe – he spends half the minute and a half just bombing away like he was a B 17 over Dresden. I could write bombing like a B 17 over Hanoi, but I’m not sure if they used B 17s to bomb Hanoi. But you get the idea. He waves his arms a […]

New York City, the summer of 1939. A French tourist by the name of Jean Vivier was moseying around town making 16 mm Kodachrome amateur movies. The result is vivid and absolutely gorgeous. The video was edited and uploaded by Unknown WW2 in Color.
