The Internet is a great place without other people

So, I think we've all had this experience at one point in our lives: you just watched a great YouTube video or finished a great article only to have the WHOLE experience ruined by Joe C. Internetuser (the "C." stands for "crazy") going on an all-caps rant. I don't know about you, but that really bums me out. For this reason, I've come to love a little web browser extention called Comment Snob.

Comment Snob does exactly what you think it does: it removes unsavory comments on YouTube (or many other sites, for that matter) by parameters that you set up. If you can't stand those all-caps rants, you can block any comment that is written in all uppercase. If you don't like comments that have no punctuation, Comment Snob will zap them off your screen. You could even go so far as to hide comments with too many type-os.

If you're like me and think that the Internet needs a crazy filter sometimes, then get Comment Snob for Firefox or Google Chrome. 

CATching Up With CAT - February 1, 2012


Gearing up for CAT Chats


The CAT Crew met up with Andrew Droz Palermo Tuesday to talk tech for this Saturday's CAT Chat. After seeing some of the clips he plans on showing, I can tell everyone is in for a treat! Not only are you going to be able to pick this guy's brain, you're going to see brand-spankin'-new music videos for impressive artists, beautiful short films, and more.

That's a lot of knowledge and know-how for five bucks, folks! Bring your friends, bring your friends' friends, bring anyone and everyone down to Studio A on January 28th at 1pm for an awesomely informative discussion of art and career with Andrew Droz Palermo.
