Over the last few weeks the ongoing struggle between good (aka going out to party) and evil (aka work) has led to a severe lack of sleep and a general feeling of exhaustion. That’s why yesterday evening I only had some running sushi with friends and a few beers afterwards, before returning home before midnight. But instead of going to bed immediately, I made the fatal mistake of visiting YouTube to watch the videos Lotussteve, m3 and Red have recommended. Here are some of my favorites, thanks guys!
- Live Super Mario Bros. – A bunch of high school students doing a rendition of Super Mario Bros. Great stuff and very funny.
- The Internet Is A Series of Tubes – The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart explains how the internet works. You shouldn’t miss that one!
- New Super Mario Bros. Final Castle 105 seconds World Record – Amazing!
- PS3 vs. Wii – I’m intending to buy a Wii anyway, but this video is just hilarious.
- Almost – Cheese & Crackers – Coolest miniramp skate session ever. Read my lips: EVER!
When I finished watching the stuff my friends had recommended, I started browsing around the site and found the following gem I immediately subscribed to:
Happy Slip Productions – A Filipina actress who is doing some seriously funny stuff.
After I freed myself from the black hole that YouTube is for one’s free time, I decided to finally watch Elephants Dream, an animated movie realized entirely with free software, which I downloaded a few weeks ago but never had time to watch before. It’s really great and of course CC licensed.
