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.

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.

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.

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.

Philadelphia mayoral candidates Michael Nutter and Al Taubenberger think you ought to be in pictures - on YouTube, that is.

At first glance, it appears 21-year-old Rachel Levin and her boyfriend are hosting an epic pool party in her Lower Merion backyard. To document the festivities, maybe a few selfies or video clips will find their way to Snapchat - because, you know, that's the average social-media output for a Gen Z-er. Except that Levin is RCLBeauty101 . Her YouTube handle might not mean anything to you if you are a twinkle older than 25, but to the makeup world of tween and teen girls, Levin is a superstar.

I watch classic films like High Society , Breakfast at Tiffany's , and Mahogany repeatedly - not so much for the story lines, but because I get a kick out of seeing Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, and Diana Ross dressed exquisitely in the fashions of their eras. This is why I always get lured into clicking on Mode Studios' historically haute "100 Years" videos, quick-paced series of two- to three-minute mini-movies that chronicle men's and women's fashion over the decades.

YouTube sensation Ed Bassmaster took a pay cut to star on his own TV show. Born Edwin Rodriguez in Northeast Philadelphia, Bassmaster has made a name (and a living) for himself by pulling pranks on unsuspecting victims - like dressing up as a zombie and going through a fast-food drive-through (30 million views) - and creating characters like Teste, Mumbles, and a CIA agent who conducts undercover operations at Kmart. Last year, Bassmaster made national news when he took credit for destroying HitchBOT , a hitchhiking Canadian robot that met its demise in Philadelphia (he didn't actually destroy it)

Charlie Puth may be a 24-year-old, piano-pounding pop sensation from Rumson, N.J., whose roots go as far back as ...  YouTube, and whose gossipy connections include rumored hookups with Selena Gomez, but the songs he writes and the sounds he makes are the workings of a very old soul. At least one older than Gomez. While Puth's lyrics reference the ageless pains of romance and smooth R&B legends ("Marvin Gaye"), his buoyant melodies - on full display at a sold-out-to-the-rafters show at South Street's Theatre of Living Arts on Monday night - nod to quintessentially classic pop perfectionists Billy Joel, Todd Rundgren and George Gershwin.

Actor-comedian Jamie Kennedy is better known for cracking jokes than cracking chests, but starting Tuesday, he'll be playing a doctor in NBC's new medical drama Heartbeat . And not just any doctor: Kennedy's character is a cardiothoracic surgeon. "I'm cracking chests, and I'm also [operating on] muscle and tendon. I forget the actual name of it. But he [his character, Evelyn Callahan], has two boards," meaning he's certified in two specialties, the Upper Darby native said in an interview after an NBC news conference in January.

In the scope of all things teenybop, Alessia Cara is not your typical kid pop star. Not if her anthemic "Here" (which just hit No. 1 on Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, finally toppling Drake's "Hotline Bling") or her accompanying Know-It-All album on Def Jam Records are any indication. This weekend, Cara is set to play the Theatre of Living Arts on South Street to prove that, despite "Here's" antisocial rhetoric, she's ready to party. The 19-year-old singer-songwriter - Canadian-born Alessia Caracciolo - grew up in an Italian household as a theater kid who wrote her own poetry.
