Happy Birthday To YouTube

The lovelies over at Gingers is the Watchword pointed out that today is YouTube's official birthday. Although the domain name was activated in February 2005 and the first (boring) video was uploaded that April, public beta testing began in May before the site's official launch in November.

So, to commemorate the birth of one of the greatest time sucks to ever live, here is a collection of videos that have brought me joy over the years. I shrunk them down some so this wouldn't take up my whole front page.

That Mary Poppins trailer scared the shit out of me. No lie.

And as much as I am not a fan of cats, Kittens Inspired By Kittens is awesome. "I'm her mom." "No she's not!"

Wow, Asian backstreet boys. That is a memory that I thought therapy had helped wipe. Thanks a lot!

I was kinda hoping for a "Charley bit me!" moment, but a mighty fun collection of shrunken vids nonetheless!!

THANK GOD for YouTube. I've seen political shootouts in Iran taken by cell phone, of course "David After Dentist" ranks high, and all the concerts I don't get to see with my own eyes.

 

Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
