Anna Akana is an actress and YouTuber extraordinaire, and while she says she’s still trying to find her voice, I think she’s pretty solidly found it, if this recent video of hers has anything to say about it.

This is the best “make-up” video I’ve ever seen. Be confident. Be bold. Be the most beautiful You you can be. (And there ain’t nothing wrong or anti-feminist about wanting to look good to give yourself that extra confidence and happiness boost – I’ve had THAT conversation way more times than I can count.)

As Anna says, “The power of make up is incredible, but the power of you is cray cray.”

And downright the most geekiest. Honestly I don’t think it needs an introduction. Just watch it.

I was eating a jelly bean while watching this. Bad move. Started laughing so hard I almost choked and passed out… almost like I had been hit with a Vulcan nerve pinch. You’ll get it if you watch the video. Also, who didn’t think that the song Nimoy sings while in the car isn’t the best choice EVER? Have you ever seen THAT video? Well now you have.

GO BILBO!

Some Day Your Gay Prince Will Come [Video]

This is quickly becoming Nikki’s blog of music and videos! But that’s okay, right? Because it’s quality. And quality is what counts.

I’m gonna keep telling myself that until it’s true.

ANYWAY. Y’all need to watch this and you need to watch the ENTIRE thing. It’s a little slow at first, but once you get past the crazy (and hilarious) fairy godmother, the dancing is incredible. And the entire video is amazing and whoever mashed the songs up is GENIUS. Not lying. Watch it and you will understand.

It also makes me cry with happiness because, gosh, “some day we’ll be part of your world.” Just watch it.

The cameos in this video are incredible, too. I love every single person who is in the video and who helped make it. THANK YOU. <3

Silly Video Time: Gangnam Style

Because sometimes I’m just at a loss for words and I have to share.

Just when you think it’s over, it keeps going.

Someones needs to FlashMob this.

A. Savage as Gollum: I Will Survive!

Because sometimes you just need something to make you smile. I hope you all enjoy this as much I did. I still can’t wait it without laughing so hard I cry. Adam Savage is just full of the awesome.

Alive with the Sound of Music.

While traversing the many intricate layers of the internet, I somehow stumbled upon this little video (I lie – a friend actually sent it to me via email, but it sounds more impressive if I “forget” to mention that part). Either way, this video rocks and very clearly shows exactly what people can do when the motivation strikes (and quite possibly a few catchy refrains of pop culture musicals are played over loud speakers).

You have to admit, that would be amazing to see. I’d be the one dancing offbeat, messing up the steps because I’d want to pretend I was in on it all along when really I was just a simple passer-by. My attempts at being cool and popular often fail, if you hadn’t guessed by now.

Enjoy the video.

Aliens Among Us!

Mac (my newest blog hostee), pointed this out via Twitter and it’s so incredible I can’t NOT post it.

That video is pretty grainy, but check out the one in the actual article: Alien-like Squid with “Elbows” Filmed at Drilling Site. It DOES look like an alien but it’s also really beautiful in a creepy, elegant sort of way (my descriptions rock). Can you believe these things really exist?

The world is such a strange place.

My Face Hurts from Laughing.

Seriously. I found this years ago, but rediscovered it just now. Oh my god, I was laughing so hard I was crying. Freakin’ hilarious.

My favorite part is the guy in the background completely oblivious. Oh my god. Seriously funniest thing I have ever seen. Oh man. Can’t breathe.

Actually, just search Asian BSB on YouTube. Their videos are absolutely ridiculous and absolutely genius. I cannot stop laughing. Their facial expressions are just awesome.

He’s the King!

DorkMuffin posted this originally, but I thought it was so cool I had to post it here. Seriously, who has time to do this?

Cheese puffs? Holy crap, it’s amazing. Seriously.

You’re the One that I Want.

And because that last post was a bit heavy, have the cutest dancing pup ever.

Oh come on. I couldn’t stop smiling as I watched that. Want more cute pups? Check out Ash’s Mutts n’ More. She just uploaded a video that has some absolutely adorable six week old puppies (and me – it has me in it too, so don’t say I didn’t warn you). They are just freakin’ cute and so sweet. I love my family.

Have a good night all!
