Friday YouTube Gem #1: floatinglightbulb

I am not sure how frequently I will do this (I plan on every Friday, but well, you can't really count on me for doing anything that frequently), but I thought I would review a YouTube director every Friday until I get bored.

And boredom is already setting in, so we will see how long this lasts.

For the first Friday YouTube Gem, I found floatinglightbulb.



The embedded clip reminds me of Stacey, the Peanut Queen. She did a similar post a long time ago. Anyway, Stacey's post was so good that I swore my undying love for her writing and linked to her site.

I sort of stopped reading Stacey when she stopped posting for a while due to some technical issues. You see, her work blocked her out. I guess they wanted her to actually work. I mean, I emailed her, begging her to continue to blog. Begging her to post more pictures for her Braless Tuesday antics. Oh, that is Lisa. Perhaps that's why she started ignoring my requests. I take back all of the mean things I was thinking about her. But seriously, Stacey is a fav of mine that I lost touch with over the last couple of months. I guess I should have resolved to start reading more blogs again.

Where was I? Oh, I am supposed to be reviewing a VLOG. This VLOG is really professionally done, and it is funny as crap. Although crap is not often funny. The reason that the VLOG is professionally done is that Josh Shayne is studying film as New York University, and he has recently, I think, completed his first 30-minute romantic comedy, Tempting Charles Warner. I love the music in the trailer; reminds me of sirens (the creatures that doom sailers).

Personally, I enjoyed the "Cooking with Caveman" video. It reminds me of the guest spots on talk shows that they did years ago (before cooking became in vogue). Think guest spot for Donahue.

I imagine most of these shorts were done for school projects. They are funny, they are clever, and they are entertaining. You are not going to see cheerleaders wrestling over pom-poms, but you may be entertained for a few minutes. Not better than sex, but you can do this at work. Well, maybe some of you can have sex at work. Just don't have sex with an intern. And if you are the intern, tape the episode. You can't share it on YouTube, but you will be able to coast at work, possibly for the rest of your career.

Wow.. She kind of creeps me out...

She reminds me of this young woman I dated a ways back that had WAY too much baggage.

While making love she'd break down and start crying and talking about how she was abused as a child. I mean... That's great and all and I feel for you, but do you really have to bring this up during our first fuck?

Yeah, that's her... She's creepy. Of course not sure if there was sound or not (Can't hear @ work) so maybe it made more sense than without any sound.

Okay, I need coffee...

Cheers!

pyth0s: the sound makes the video. Actually check out some of the other videos he has as well. They are very well-done.

I can't watch the video at work, I'll check it out when I get home. Sorry I haven't been around much. I still read your blog, I just don't always comment.
I thought you didn't like to read numerous comments anyway... :)
Anyhow, I like reading your blog, I've been in kind of a funk lately, but I moved my blog- if you're interested.
It's here now.

Love You Tube.

A sexy and charming clip that I enjoyed very much. No, not better than sex, but a pretty nice way to brighten up my Friday, nevertheless. Thanks dear Leesa.

Leesa,

2007 is going to be your year. Two massively great things will happen to you this year, and then of course, you will have the regular ups and downs like normal.

Isn't it amazing what we find entertaining? I watched every bit of this and thought, "Hmm, interesting." People are nosey in general. Of course they won't admit it, but it's like the "Rear Window" movie (which I posted about in my blog about weird neighbors and watching them)-----how we can't help but stare at their differences.

It makes living in close quarters a lot more fun.

GAWD I need to get out of here!!!

*S* Cute!

my problem with You Tube? It can suck up way too much of my time *L*

Leesa said...

pittchick: a new blog for a new year. Neat.

dr. ~deb: me, too, but I have to limit my time.

ian: you may want to check out his 30-minute movie. Ian, you are in CA, right? You may be able to find it. Here in GA, I doubt it will ever be in our theaters.

gw: two massively great things? Wow.

~deb: yeah, we all have our own tastes.

mal: agreed
