Fun with YouTube

A lot of times, you read about the "YouTube" in the papers, and they talk about the video that some guy made that a million people saw. That's all well and good, but what I enjoy are the random, crappy videos that make up the other 99.9% of what's there. Sometimes I'll type a random word into the search engine and see what comes around.

Today's word: "Zebra"

Here is the YouTube Zebra Film Festival:

Actually, one of those came up when I searched for "Cousin Steve," rather than "Zebra."

Fred Broski Update

I previously mentioned Kansas City Weatherman Fred Broski in this post.

I'm currently visiting my parents in Kansas City. They recently received an advertisement in the mail for Silvercrest at Deer Creek, a Senior Living Community. On the ad, there's a picture of Fred Broski and the endorsement "It's so great, my Mom moved to Silvercrest." -- Fred Broski.

So he's got that going for him.

Here's a story about his daughter.

Celebrity Jeopardy at Radio City Music Hall

Celebrity Jeopardy will be taping at Radio City Music Hall this weekend. I sent away for tickets, but unfortunately, I will not be going.

Coming soon: The story of how I went to see the "Price is Right" road show.

Actual Comic Book Panels

This one is from "Ultimate Spider-Man," issue 97, "The Clone Saga: Part 1." (page 4)

That's Peter Parker, of course, and his Aunt May. Apparently, she's made genetic duplicates of our boy "Hoagy." Don't touch them with your filthy spider-hands, though.

And just for the hell of it, here's this picture again:

Public Art in Rockefeller Center

It's a giant parabolic mirror. Tomorrow's headline "Amy Poehler Spontaneously Combusts".

See, what would happen, is, if the Sun hits the giant parabolic mirror just the right way, it focuses the sunlight into a super-intense beam right into her office near Studio 8H, and "pzapfssst".

Here's a view from the other side. You can see the upside-down reflection of 30 Rock.

C is for Cake

My parents went to MacArthur Park and all I got was this lousy handbasket.

Again with the Signs: Retail Edition

First, here's a shop that wants to be where you go after a hard day of fasting. (If you can't make it out, the sign, circled in green, says "Happy Ramadan.") But this is Brooklyn, so we better hedge our bets with the Menorah (Circled in red, the Jewish ceremonial candelabra is actually used during Hanukkah, which isn't until December).

And if you were wondering, it's a French pastry shop.

And here, a store where, I guess everything could could really be any price. I went in to have a look, to see if everything really was "1$ or More," and even things that would be less than a dollar were priced as multiples, i.e. "3 for $1"
