Back in the early 1980s, when I was simultaneously mastering middle school and Rubik's Cube, a new fad hit town that turned my peers, literally, on their heads: breakdancing. I was fascinated. But how was a white boy from the burbs supposed to learn how to breakdance? There was no manual and only an occasional sighting on TV. "Look, look!" my mother would yell from the living room, but by the time I got there: "Oh, you missed it. " For months I begged my parents to take me to New York City, the breakdance capital of the world.

THE BODY was still warm when Detective Ed Bassmaster arrived on the scene, another life snuffed out on the streets he's sworn to protect. Bassmaster's white dress shirt was triple-starched, his hair an unmovable force against the autumn wind and, behind those aviators, there was surely a steely glint in his eyes. Some scumbag was gonna go down hard for this one, but first a cameraman had to check a battery pack dangling out of an open zipper in Bassmaster's pants, real up close and personal, and they both cracked up laughing.

CAIRO - A Cairo court on Saturday ordered the government to block access to the video-sharing website YouTube for 30 days for carrying an anti-Islam film that caused deadly riots across the world. Judge Hassouna Tawfiq ordered YouTube blocked for carrying the film, which he described as "offensive to Islam and the Prophet [Muhammad]. " He made the ruling in the Egyptian capital, where the first protests against the film erupted last September before spreading to more than 20 countries, killing more than 50 people.

I SPENT MORE than an hour late at night last week listening to Steve Harvey 's ex-wife Mary carry on about how her former husband should be nobody's relationship guru. Harvey's book "Act Like a Lady: Think Like a Man" was No. 1 on the New York Times' best-seller list for 23 weeks and is being made into a movie. He has a nationally syndicated radio show with an estimated 6 million listeners and he's the new host of TV's "Family Feud. Yet I and others, can't understand why anyone would listen to him give relationship advice.

L ADY GAGA HAS been booted from YouTube after her account was suspended yesterday. The notice read that the suspension was due to "multiple or severe violations of YouTube's copyright policy. " Who complained, Madonna ? The Google-owned YouTube declined to comment (but maybe someone could post a video commenting for YouTube). YouTube's policy is to remove accounts after three copyright violations, though they can be restored after being corrected. Reports have suggested that the infringing video was a recently uploaded clip of Gaga's performance on Fuji TV. The account, "ladygagaofficial," is one of two for Gaga and is run by Gaga's camp, which isn't really a camp except it involves a lot of athletic, young people who have fun. Gaga also has an unaffected Vevo account.

REBECCA BLACK'S icky "Friday" video has topped all other YouTube vids of 2011 with 180 million views. This is the level of non-news culture you will inherit when newspapers are no more - one of fake Jon Bon Jovi -is-dead stories that traverse the Internet like the Silver Surfer, babbling babies, genius cats and insipid songs like "Friday. " The second-most-popular video, announced yesterday by the Google-owned YouTube, was "Ultimate Dog Tease," in which an owner taunts a dog with food and voices its reactions.

FORMER North Carolina coach Butch Davis posted a video on YouTube defending himself from allegations following an NCAA investigation into the UNC football program, saying he is "absolutely committed to a clean program. " In the 9 1/2-minute clip, Davis says his philosophy has always been to succeed academically and on the field. "Those who have implied my ethics were different at the University of North Carolina couldn't be more wrong," Davis said. He said he didn't know about ex-assistant John Blake's close friendship with an NFL agent, a focus of the NCAA probe into improper benefits and academic misconduct.

It's heartening in this era of fluffy YouTube videos that an artist of weight can gain success through that medium. But YouTube is where we first heard of Andrew Hozier-Byrne, the Irish folk-gospel singer who performs as simply Hozier and who posted a stark video for his "Take Me to Church" - dedicated to Russia's beleaguered LGBT community facing rampant homophobia. The song became a viral sensation by dealing with religion and humanity with a sound track of holy-rolling, smoldering sensuality.

Who knew the city had its own stash of movies? Both delightful and dreadful, the historic films depict Philadelphia life between the 1950s and 1980s in the earnest, unironic, relentlessly square cinematic style of scratchy old high school hygiene movies, along the lines of "Foot Care and You. " The creation of the 150 or so films was supervised by the Office of City Representative, the agency charged for decades with promoting Philadelphia....

Christina Grimmie was runner-up in her high school's "Cherokee Idol" singing competition in 2011. It was largely a popularity contest, friends said, and the introverted, video-game-loving Grimmie came up short in the votes. On Monday, Grimmie, a Marlton native, will compete in the highest-rated singing popularity contest in the country as a finalist on NBC's The Voice - and with 500,000 Twitter followers, two million YouTube subscribers, and a strong cohort of South Jersey support, she has a good chance at redemption on a national stage.

TORONTO'S CRACK-SMOKING mayor, Rob Ford , and his brother Doug Ford , a city councilor, are launching a YouTube series called "Ford Nation. " Ford asks people to "please judge me on my record, not my personal life" in a preview posted yesterday. Ford last year made international headlines when he admitted to having smoked crack cocaine while in a drunken stupor. He's also drawn attention for repeated erratic behavior - essentially the norm now for a politician - but he has resisted pressure to step down and is seeking re-election.

MOST PHILLY COPS do it right. One shift after another, they put their lives on the line for people they don't know. They lock up the bad guys and try to make it home to their families in one piece. Some officers turn into bad guys themselves. They've lost their badges amid allegations of assault, theft, rape, fraud and drug dealing. At least 68 city cops have been charged with crimes since March 2009. But Officer Philip Nace - the YouTube sensation who has developed an international reputation as the angriest cop in the City of Brotherly Love - is perhaps the first Philly lawman to get benched for what a police spokesman described simply as "idiotic behavior.

NO ONE GOT PUNCHED in the face - this time - but YouTube has given the Philadelphia Police Department another black eye, proving once again that smartphones are a bully cop's worst nightmare. Let's just hope that Officer Philip Nace doesn't land in the city's tourism department when the dust settles. "Don't come to f---ing Philadelphia. Stay in Jersey. " That's one of Nace's rage-induced zingers that were recorded in a disturbing 16-minute YouTube video of a recent stop and frisk.

Comedian Steve Hofstetter spends more time on college campuses than most professors do. "I've always been the comic where people say, 'I've never heard of you but my kids love you,' " says Hofstetter, who appears Friday night in a show for La Salle University students. "My act is questioning the status quo. I think that resonates with college kids. Once you graduate, you have to worry about a mortgage and kids and money. It's easier to be an idealist when you're young. " Being the original writer for the popular website CollegeHumor.com also raised his campus cachet.

    LOS ANGELES - He's a musician without a record label, a cardholder without any remaining credit. And the gig that supplies what he calls "food money" may now be in jeopardy. But after the events of the last week, Steve Grand said, "I would die a happy man today. "Grand's first music video, for his country-tinged rock ballad "All-American Boy," was posted on YouTube last Tuesday. By Sunday, it had exploded, attracting more than 400,000 total views - nothing for top-charting videos from big-name recording artists, but an impressive figure for one from a complete unknown whose only promotion has been Internet buzz.
