Winter Holiday Music, no one should be left out

 I am a big fan of Adam Sandler’s the Hanukkah Song, so when I came across the Athiest Song, I felt it necessary to share:

Fostering Conversation

I woke up early this morning to see what the media was saying about last night.  Obv., I had to check my email, and I found that my inbox was full of mail from youtube, one of my videos I posted last night had over 500 views in less than 12 hours and had 14 comments.  This is very exciting to me.  I have posted the comments below.  Look at what Youtube can do, foster discussion.  Libraries are places that foster discussion as well.  Youtube and libraries can make great partners and hoepfully we will see more of this partnership.  
Some of the comments are a little random, true to life.  Optimists and Pessimists, everyone is searching for info on Obama.

let’s go celebrate a man who just lost by 12 points in South Dakota.

Idiots.

Damn, do people still live in South Dakota? Haha, I keep forgetting that state actually exists! ROFL!

Barack is a fucking loser. Loses South Dakota, and barely winning Montana…on the day he claims the nomination. What a sack of shit

?! He won by more in Montana than Clinton did in South Dakota! Earlier, you said “let’s go celebrate a man who just lost by 12 points in South Dakota.”

Hillary lost by 15 in Montana! 

This is why he has the nomination. Because most of the contests have been like this. She may win in some states but when he wins, he wins by more.

Uhh.. yes and South Dakota was the pivotal battleground state, right? With its bountiful 3 delegates in the national election?
I don’t like being sardonic but you are ignoring the entire other 2118 delegates and 33 states he won. That is why he has the nomination.

he won the nomination by stealing Michigan…
Evid3nc3 (8 hours ago)  
stealing? he wasn’t even on the ballot and Clinton wanted to get all the delegates. *that’s* stealing. Obama didn’t even make the decision for him to get Michigan delegates: the DNC did. And he still could have won without them. 

And anyways are you really trying to tell me there is *no one* in Michigan who supports Obama? He deserved some delegates, realistically.

pequisto (8 hours ago)  
he is being rewarded by being given delegates in a state where he took his name off the ballot.
Fuck Obama. Election thief.
Evid3nc3 (7 hours ago)  
*sigh* He took his name off the ballot because he was respecting party rules. Think about it: can you really give me a good self-serving reason for him to take his name off the ballot? How would that possibly give him an advantage. 
The selfish thing to do would have been for him to leave himself on the ballot even though the DNC didn’t want Michigan to vote. That is what Hillary did.

 why didn’t BHO take his name off in Florida too?
screw Hussein
Evid3nc3 (7 hours ago)  
I don’t know exactly but I can think of one good reason: after seeing what Hillary did in Michigan, he was afraid that she would pull the same trick in Florida and try to claim all the votes there too.
Remember, there were other candidates than Barrack back in MI and almost all of them, including John Edwards, took there names off the ballot. It was very ambitious and self-serving of her to leave her name on the ballot when the other candidates took their’s off. She was trying to bend the rules

We have NO evidence that Obama has risked AIDS (i.e – that he is gay). (When Obama was 2 years old, his parents divorced, and his father returned to Kenya.) Obama is in excellent health – He often jogs three miles and has no “excess” body fat. He has a healthy blood pressure of 90 over 60, low cholesterol and a strong heart.

Uh Huh Her videos from the Varsity Theater, Dinkytown

Finally, after so many hours of being sucked into YouTube, I now have posted videos.  Immediatly after uploading the videos from my camera, the camera exploded.  Probably because the contents of the video are so unbelievably hot. 

Say So

John McCain, YouTube is after you!

So a few weeks ago will.i.am collaborated with other big names to make a video for Barak Obama.  Regardless of the candidate you are championing for, this video is pretty amazing.  YouTube is blowing up, making and breaking people. With YouTube, anyone with access to a $90 camera can be heard around the world.   And now this week a new video came out on YouTube.  It follows will.i.am’s Barak idea.  Parodies all over the place!  John McCain, YouTube is out to get you.

Whose the boss apple sauce? Would Andy Warhol have a blog?

“In the future everyone one will be famous for fifteen minutes.”

I don’t think that Andy Warhol had blogging in mind when he coined the above phrase.  However, since he has spoken those words, only YouTube and the plethora of blogs have made that quote a reality.

Perez Hilton, the “Queen of all Media”?  No one would have known his name if he hadn’t created a paparazzi photo gallery of A and B listers, made fun of everyone and then tried to be their best friend.  Well, I kind of want to be his friend.  Who is wearing underwear today, who got wasted last night, who was arrested this morning.  Perez Hilton fills us all in on our need for celebrity gossip.  He updates his site almost hourly, which I rather enjoy.  Perez knows what’s going down days before Anderson Cooper.

Others that have caught a little of the blog fame bug are: Matt Drudge’s Drudge Report and Frank Warren’s PostSecret 

 “Chocolate Rain” anyone?  So I totally got into this when I found out about it September 2007. Tay Zonday, a University of Minnesota American Studies graduate student got his day in the sun.  Adam Nyerere Bahner, better known as Tay Zonday posted a home made music video on YouTube and all of a sudden he was known across the nation.  YouTube made him popular enough to open for national acts.  Obviously I had to go see him when he opened for GirlTalk.  Nothing impressive, but it makes me smile inside that an American Studies graduate student manipulated the US via YouTube.

.

 Think back to, oh I don’t know, 1990, when the latest fashion trend was rolling your pants.  Five months later we were all like totally over it, but for a brief minute it was all the rage.  That’s what “Chocolate Rain” reminds me of.

 

But the real question is would Andy Warhol ever have approved of rolling the jeans?
