A YouTube Journey

I am currently suffering from a complete drought of material that I could use to create something interesting and slightly humorous to write about. Seriously. It's just... I don't know. I've become more boring than I could have anticipated. So, to deal with the fact that I'm at a loss for creativity, I'll take a moment and highlight some of my current favorite clips over at youtube. Because, really. I'm boring.

This trailer for the movie "Little Children" should win an Oscar. It's that good. It's like a short film. It's intense and dramatic, well acted and terrifically edited.

There are no words that could possibly describe the awesomeness of this next clip. It's just... wow.

I just bought the second season of The Office. I love Creed. I love Creed almost as much as I love Toby.

The Creed Mixtape (Abby must watch this, Creed gives a shout-out to HK)

Michael v. Toby ("I hate so much about the things that you choose to be.")

Ok. Make fun of me all you want, but I watch General Hospital. I enjoy it. Here's the ending montage from yesterday's episode. Lulu is getting an abortion at 7 o'clock. You see clips of the baby's daddy and his family waiting (they wanted the baby) and of Luke visiting Laura, per Lulu's request, and clips of other Port Charles families. And a really good song.

On a related note, Lucky Spencer is a completely different character than when he was played by Jonathan Jackson. The writing and the acting has ruined the character. If you don't believe me, go to youtube and just search for "general hospital lucky liz" and watch the ones before 1999. Here's the last clip between Lucky and Liz before Lucky "died." So sweet.

I've just come up with a really good entry but I'm not going to write it now. It has everything to do with a strange journey I went on trying to find a specific Sex and the City clip on youtube. The clip I wanted was from the episode with the new Yankee. In the episode Carrie has just broken up with Big and she has convinced herself that she's over him. While out on a date with the new Yankee she runs in to Big and she realizes that she's not over him at all. There's a moment where Big touches her arm and everything slows down and her heartbeat gets louder and I love it because who doesn't know that feeling? Well, I couldn't find that clip but it reminded me of how some of the passages in this one book illustrate those feelings. If you have the opportunity, please pick up Why Girls are Weird by Pamela Ribon. It's a great read and she's a great writer. The main character is, at times, so like me that it was uncomfortable for me to read. It's like the same feeling I got the first time I really listened to the lyrics to Rilo Kiley's "The Frug."
