"Rules for YouTube."

Lots of great advice here, including insight into the perfection of this:

A Panda with a hairball? The Sierra Mist Super-Bowl commerical?

More than likely it was an editorial comment on the way the Bears played! I loved momma Panda's reaction!

Simon said...

Obey Butterstick!

Heh heh. We haven't done that for a while.

I think the rule of YouTube is: Play it for a 10-year-old boy. If he laughs, then upload it.

I'm not sure which is worse: having to read an article, or having to sit through a long video.

Actually, it's the having to click, that I find completely exhausting.

Peace, Maxine

Youtube and Myspace or so old now. 2nd life is the new thing. And Borg implants. Wait, I said too much.

From the article: "Just as early tsk-tskers of such derided mass products as comic books (today they're called graphic novels), radio (people will stop reading books!), dime paperbacks (people won't read the right books!) and TV (two words: Paddy Chayefsky) were proven wrong..."

What the hell are books?

But seriously, were those statements really proven wrong? People have stopped reading books.

YouTube is a mixed collection of much great stuff: Leontyne Price singing 'O patria mia' in her farewell performance at the Met, Miles Davis, Rudolph Nureyev tap dancing, and singing with the muppets, Early Baryshnikov at the Kirov spinning like a top, and viewing it one can't help thinking there is no way it's real, Sylvia Plath reading, Billy Holiday singing 'Strange Fruit'..... wonderful, amazing suff.

If it was not for YouTube much of this material would be buried in some vault, away from our experiencing it once again, or even for a first time. Looking back gives inspiration to those going forward.

Oh, and Tiny Tim 'Do ya think I'm sexy'

There's something extremely funny about a Panda with a jack-in-the-box.
