My toddler loves watching YouTube videos. But problems may arise if you don’t monitor some of the things on some of these so-called “for kids” channels. Many of them display violence, teach improper behavior, and show false teachings. After about a year of monitoring the things my toddler watches, we have come up with this list of the best YouTube channels our family recommends for toddlers.
With all the talk about “House of Cards”, “Orange is the New Black”, and other Netflix original shows, “Lilyhammer” was one that slipped under the radar. It has gained a lot of buzz though, now in its third season.
If you’re a cable cutter, a good antenna is a must if you still want to enjoy over-the-air channels from broadcast networks. After cutting my cable a couple of years ago, I quickly realized it was a chore to watch local sports that were broadcast on stations like NBC, Fox and CBS. I have purchased many indoor antennas since cutting cable and haven’t gotten the results I expected. The entire experience has caused me hours of frustration when trying to find the perfect spot for my antenna. Could the Winegard FL5500C antenna be the answer?
I’m always in search of movies related to music. So, I added “I Need That Record! The Death (or Possible Survival) of the Independent Record Store” to my Netflix Instant queue without hesitation. After reading the description about the movie, it appeared the movie would be about annoying hipsters who have to let everybody know they still listen to records. I was surprised to find that wasn’t the case. Instead the movie delves into a world of “vinyl nerds”, who obsess over their hobby like a comic book nerd.
After listening to Dave Grohl on the Nerdist Podcast, I got a great feel for what he’s all about. Grohl is that creative guy any artist would like to be. His love of making music is unmatched. On the podcast, he was pitching a movie he directed called “Sound City”. The movie is about the Sound City recording studio in Los Angeles, California. A special place in Grohl’s heart where many classic rock albums were recorded, including Nirvana’s Nevermind. I love music history, and I watch the “Classic Albums” documentaries on Netflix religiously. I figured this documentary would be worth the $9.99 purchase. So I took a shot and bought it.
