That was beautiful.

Studio Ghibli I'm guessing? Felt like them channeling Peanuts to me.

Thanks for posting that. I hadn't seen it.

Wow, I'm totally welling up now. That was awesome

Ditto that was adorable, and why can't we fix blindness yet...

Well sh*t...he's right. Absolutely right. Huh, hadn't thought of it like that.

Awesome. Now one for TLC please, because I sure as sh*t wasn't pirating dinosaur miniseries on Napster.

I am, however, married with a kid and would go to a Soundgarden reunion tour show.

That's easy: privatize a channel that was once publicly funded and devoted to education = board of investors want the cheapest shows that will generate the most advertising income to maximize their profits.

And the History* channel was taken over by aliens. Discovery is still circling the drain, but at least hasn't completely gone down the drain yet.

*In an honest-to-god Freudian slip, I had typo'ed that as sh*tory channel.

So if everyone was a dirty pirate, how did artists manage to make enough money to make shows like the aforementioned Cribs in the first place? And didn't the rise of MTV came around the same time as LPs, so far one of the hardest mediums to pirate, were on the decline and almost replaced by cassette tapes which meant that only one person in your group had to buy an album and suddenly all your friends owned a slightly worse copy of it?
Sorry, I understand the reason why the focus of MTV shifted and that the new model is much more profitable, but then come out and say it honestly: "We wanted more money and extravagant music videos are more expensive to produce than following a group of morons around with a portable camera, editing it in with epilepsy inducing flash cuts and vomiting the whole mess on people's TVs". There is a great number of people who will watch that, but I honestly don't think they are the same people who are sad that MTV no longer shows music videos.

edit: Is History Channel even named that way anymore? I could swear I heard it called only History now.

double edit: Also, the girl in that video looks too young to me to remember what MTV was like in the first place.

Went and picked up some ukulele strings today, mentioned it to my coworker who introduced me to these little gems.

Best part is at about 1:23

Um... it's a joke? As in that entire YouTube channel is those two people making various joke sketches and that was one of them.

Not sure if this has been posted. Nothing else really to say about it. Enjoy (?).

Ah. Erm...
In that case I'm sorry for the rant. I guess I have a sore spot for "You made us do this!" justifications.

Is...is that serious?

"Let's engineer a new Rebecca Black and make millions." At least her voice is better.

50 Shades of... Chicken?

((and is that Patrick Stewart reading?))

That is awesome.

What madness have you brought before us?

My wife's response to this video:

"Oh my god, my life. Minus children. I wring my hands and cry."

Spoiler:

I (Strangeblades) laughed my ass off.

Can't wait for this movie to eventually come out. I hope it doesn't take too much longer. I <3 Wong Kar Wai.
