- Mar 22, 2010Chatroulette: Merton, Ben Folds
The wonder serendipity that was part of the net I remember now gets YouTubed and shared back with the world. I wrote about Chatroulette last month, here’s some wonderful video that is internet + piano + video + flash-enabled randomized connected chat. It’s a wonderful selection. Note: there are swear words. I still like Ben…

- Mar 05, 2010Cloud computing described by Larry Ellison
Apparently this “cloud” thing is made of computers, it’s not just water vapor. Funny video featuring Larry Ellison. via Daring Fireball

- Jan 10, 2009Charming 1956 Disneyland Home Movie
And it turns out there’s an instant of young Steve Martin in the film. Also watch or download it at archive.org. Found via the always wonderful waxy.org

- Oct 22, 2008Walt Disney; What’s My Line
Love this episode of What’s My Line: Our houseguests and Leah and I went to Disneyland several weeks ago on the dime of one of Leah’s blogger things, and I was impressed. I was not feeling that great, but I was stunned by how well the fun machine of Disney’s making works.

- Aug 25, 2008Penetrators: Shopping Bag
Another piece of culture I’d never seen, via PCL Linkdump. I had heard of the band Penetrators but I’d never heard anything by them that I was aware of. The video is nearly perfect in its chaotic silliness. The song has a perfect hook too.
- Aug 25, 2008Web Anthropology, particularly YouTube
Anthropologist Dr. Michael Wesch talks about Digital Ethnography. He puts YouTube in perspective and reminds me I love it despite the fact that one needs a tool like Comment Snob sometimes to appreciate it.
- Jul 16, 2008Let Forever Be
I just can’t get this song out of my head, and I don’t care one whit, not one jot. Chemical Brothers, Let Forever Be
- Jun 12, 2008Wood Beez + Scritti Politti + 1980s Music
Wood Beez is turning into one of those songs that I play over and over and over and over in an effort to, what, understand? Get it? Enjoy? The video is deconstructionist frippery, and ultimately harmless. The black pride salute reference is an interesting choice. I remember liking Perfect Way and Wood Beez, and taping…
- Jun 11, 2008Stew on Theater Talk
Very enjoyable. And also: Stew Plays Drunk at the Obies (read the whole thing), it does get a bit too wild for work: Because of Stew, I am looking forward to the Tony Awards. I don’t believe it either.
- May 28, 2008Soy Cowboy: Lily Pads & Rock Cod
After high school, it became something of a fetish of mine to travel from San Diego to Los Angeles and do various sightseeing. One of the things I (and my friend Chris) used to hit was the Art Center College of Design gallery. For us, Art Center was the pinnacle of cool, of talent, of…
- May 14, 2008Upcoming Documentaries
Despite being excited about Speed Racer, I find myself unimpressed by the vast majority of the movies that come out. Two documentaries that are on tap look really great though. The first is American Teen (via Slashfilm, and again): The second is Surfwise (via Slashfilm):
- May 14, 2008Three by Missing Persons
Missing Persons is not a band I ever got way into, but I remember liking their music. My uncle had Spring Session M and we listened to that record on his stereo when we went to Lake Dolores (a long defunct waterpark halfway to Las Vegas). Keep in mind I was 10 years old in…
