Best of the web to help stop binge watching bad TV?

My wife and I have a 6-month-old who goes to bed quite early (not complaining) which means we have lots of evening time at home these days. We have Apple TV and while air playing something last week - I thought, hmmm, maybe we can make a night of this?!?! So, we've decided that Tuesday nights are web-stream nights. We are looking for specific videos (or sites that have great ones) that are any of the following: Educational like any number of videos on vsauce, thought-provoking like videos on The School of Life site or even hilarious like Drunk History.

Help me find more 80s soundtrack theme songs ABOUT their parent films.

Help me remember music videos from that magical era when bands would record theme songs for (often horror) movies that were actually lyrically about the movies themselves and the artist would sometimes appear in the video and the video would be a story video and...well you know. Think Ramones' "Pet Sematary" or Dokken's "Dream Warriors" [more inside]

Why are online videos stuttering?

Video and audio of online videos (YouTube, Hulu, etc.) stutter quite often when I play them. My laptop is not old by any means and it's been recently formatted. I've updated all the drivers and tried using both the default and HTML 5 Beta players on YouTube; no difference. Seems to be worst in Chrome. Any idea why this is happening? Thanks.

Looking for short, high-quality clips of animals for my one-year-old.

My son is getting more and more interested in animals, which is great! On our walks through the neighborhood we see dogs, cats, squirrels, and birds, but as fall approaches outdoor time will begin to be limited. He doesn't get a lot of screen time, so I'd like to make the 5 or 10 minutes a day count. Please suggest cute, funny, interesting, educational clips of animals, between one and three minutes long. Here's an example of what I'm looking for (although the camera work isn't the greatest). Thanks!

Just saw "Total Eclipse of the Heart" for the first time. More, please.

While settling a disagreement over whether Total Eclipse of the Heart was a duet, I just saw the music video and it blew my mind. I grew up without cable, and am pretty much ignorant of everything but the "classic" music videos from the 80's; please let me know what I'm missing. [more inside]

What should I do: Ext. Hard Drives, Media Servers, NAS, etc.

Please talk to me like I'm stupid. I have a bunch of video files (~5TB...so far) hanging out on a bunch of external hard drives.

I'd like something a little more convenient and easily accessible from multiple rooms in my small apartment, but I'm not awesome at setting up networky things (I've never successfully gotten two different laptops in my apartment to even "see" each other over the wireless router).

Best Educational Videos?

Hi all, I am developing online educational videos (teaching ppl how to use software) and I would love to learn about any good examples that you have seen. I have definitely watched a bunch from Khan Academy, and love their style of short and engaging videos. Are there other examples you have seen that have been engaging and instructive? Many instructional videos that I have seen that have good content are boring and wouldn't hold someone's attention very long. Thank you for your help!

iPad to Macbook

I took several long videos (25 - 50 minutes each) with the camera on my new iPad, and now I would like to transfer them to my Macbook, so that I can convert them to .avi files and give them to a friend. Dropbox will not upload them ('upload pending' forever). Backing up the iPad results in many folders with random numbers, none of which look big enough to be the videos. What should I try next?

So, like the opposite of Gordon Ramsay

Are there any videos on YouTube similar to Great Depression Cooking, in that they feature completely amateur cooking? I mean people without great knife technique or whatever, just cooking regular meals in small regular kitchens like the rest of regulars, fearlessly and worrying not so much about presentation or perfection?

My memory fails me

I'm trying to remember a web-video series that was mentioned on the blue a couple of times in the last year or two. All I can remember is that they were hosted by a woman (maybe light brown/blond hair...?) who was giving a funny/feminist take on various things in pop culture. Does that ring a bell with anyone? I think maybe one of the topics she talked about was yogurt commercials aimed at women. I know, not much to go on!
