i know this is a bit random, but its a good example of every day "relativism":

the backstory, is that they are interviewing a (russian) hockey goalie in Edmonton who plays for Anaheim. Chris Pronger, who now plays for Anaheim left Edmonton in the last summer, and there were reports that his family didnt like living there and now this russian goalie gives his insight......

Now, first this russian goalie (toungue-in-cheek) goes on a rant about how cold it is in Edmonton, and how much nicer California is. But then just when you think the interview is over, a reporter asks him, "but you like them both?[Anaheim and Edmontom]" and he just quickly answers "yeah".

Now, i know this is just a sports interview, but its really telling of the mentality some people have. I mean, he clearly doesnt rate Edmonton all that high, so why the hell do they have to ask a "but you like them both"-question, when its clear that he doesnt, at least equally. Why cant a person just think that living in Anaheim is nicer than living in Edmonton, and why does he HAVE to like them both?

Jet Li performs Wushu,

as a teenager

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X5H9SLoeksA

and at the age of 8.

I find this extremely beautiful. That last video is a simpler routine, but it is so serene. And that's one reason why I loved Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.

Also, Wushu influenced the original Soul Calibur video game for the Dreamcast:

As dancing it looks ok but it seems hard to take seriously as a martial art.

I think capoeira looks a lot less camp though and I'd personally rather watch that when it comes to dance-fighting :

This is a very strange music video that, to my surprise, I happened to find funny. It seems to be a parody of modern times, even though it was from 1989.

It's a brilliant treatise on money - absolutely spectacular.

A trailer for Atlas Shrugged using the audio speech from Galt and a computer program known as "The Movies". THIS VIDEO IS AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!

This is an amazing animation of a very complex music machine. I thought it was real, at first, but the replies all say it is an animation. I don't know if it is bootlegged or not, however, as some of the replies say it is from a longer compilation of animations (from TV?).

Someone wrote to me privately pointing out that the video is from a compilation of such videos available on http://www.animusic.com/index.shtml

They only present 30 second briefs from their animations, but what got me about the one I mentioned is that it seemed like a real machine.

The Obama National Anthem:

The Lyrics:

All hail the Messiah

Obama, Obama

The path to the new socialist motherland

Our savior, our savior

Obama, Obama

The leader more famous than Lindsay Lohan

Bow down and praise the One

Give him your money and your guns

Give us a country

That makes your wife proud

Lord Barry heal the bitter ones

White and clinging to faith and to guns

Hope for the change of the hope of the change!

A collaboration of clips from the summer of 2008 for my future, hopeful, place of education: animation mentor (Note: all of these people are amateurs, and their skills are easily comparable to Pixar and Dreamworks)

Since the Inauguration I got a taste for using bad poems as a source of entertainment, and apparently I'm not alone. Here's Ricky Gervais, reacting to his semi-retarded friend's poems, as read on their podcast (by the way, I don't see the difference between this and what that woman read):

youtube titled Our Life of Poetry: Emily Dickinson, by the Philoctetes Center, which is a round table discussion of her. (though keep in mind it is a discussion and as such, this one is prone to a little inaccuracy, like the number of poems my dearest Emily Dickinson wrote and so forth, and saying Mount Holyoke "Academy" when it's Mount Holyoke Seminary, but I consider myself quite a becoming amatuer Dickinson scholar, due to my intense interest in her and her poetry/letters so I pick up on things like that quickly)

youtube titled Hypergraphia and Hypographia: 'Diseases' of Written Word, by the Philoctetes Center which features the lovely Alice Flaherty, who wrote this book that I read last year and what got this round table discussion going, The Midnight Disease: The Drive to Write, Writer's Block, and the Creative Brain.

In this arrangement, all lyrics have been deleted and she repeats "Ave Marie" over and over until the final Amen. With no lyrics to be concerned about, I can be appreciate the beauty and quality of the voice and accompaniment.

I also like this

because I can actually hear the lyrics. Edited by Grames
