Everyone Gets “Happy”

posted by Nell Minow

I love it when a song and video inspires tributes that pop up all over YouTube.  And Pharrell Williams’ “Happy,” an irresistible tune with a simple video of people dancing, has inspired people all over the world to do their own versions.

Isn’t it great to see so many happy people!  If you’ve made a “Happy” video or just have one you like that I missed, let me know.

    Here is one more video from the Milwaukee Brewers. Don’t know if you know about Hak the dog. He is in a snippet of the video. Hank wandered on to the field during practice in spring training. He was adopted by one of the Brewer officials and is the new mascot for the Brewers. He has a dog house out in the bleacher area too. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lyi677lwdnE

      Oh my goodness! I love that one! My dad is from Milwaukee and it is one of my favorite cities. Thanks so much for sharing.

        Glad you liked that. I wondered how long it took to do that video as it was done right after the season started. I was always under the impression your dad was born in Chicago. Once again I am mistaken about something. As a former FCC chairman I wonder how he feels about net neutrality.

When the Game Stands Tall
This dreary assemblage of every possible sports cliché has one thing in common with the game it portrays. Every time it seems to be going somewhere, it stops. More frustratingly, it wastes the opportunity to tell a good story by trying to squeeze in too many great ones. There are too many crises

Christian Indie Films of 2014
This year has already seen a remarkable and perhaps unprecedented number of Christian and Biblically-based films, from big-budget epics like "Noah" and "Son of God" to small faith-oriented films like "God's Not Dead."  There is an excellent summary of four Christian independent films of 2014 on In

One of the handsomest men alive spends almost the entire movie wearing a huge round paper maché head in "Frank," a moving film inspired by the real-life story of the late Frank Sidebottom.  Michael Fassbender plays Frank, a sweet-natured but very quirky musician who wears his big head mask even in
