Youtube stuff

Friday, August 24th, 2007

Four times every twelve years, there is a pilgrimage to YouTube. During the festivities people bathe in the abundant waters of low-quality video with questionable copyright. And like Kumbh Mela, there is a lot of shared excrement.

I wish there were a way to avoid having these entries take up gigachunks of memory and processing even when they are doing nothing – damn Flash.

The “Sweet Baby Jesus” act from Talladega Nights.

Gregorius singing a Finnish version of YMCA. Check out the background dancers with costumes as cool as Team Zissou.

Piffy the Bell Ringer on the Australian talent show Pot Luck. American Idol has nothing on Piffy.

A followup on Piffy the Bell Ringer on the ABC Late Show. I remember watching this show religiously (which is fairly true since TV is the closest thing I have to religion).
