Never gets old.
On my watch list.
Was kind of hoping for a more intelligible or potent message about humanity, but it never really came. I then thought about how a modern day Diogenes would be interesting, and then suddenly Vivek "The Homeless Prophet" came to mind.
Excellent interviews, and still as relevant as ever. A documentary about corporations and their role in the mainstream media. A film I highly recommend seeing, even if you just end up watching clips at a time.
I had to laugh when he broke out "Firefly" on demand. The females reaction is classic. The hooded pianist reminds me of Flight of the Concords and Ben Folds; or some happy bizarre hybrid of the two.
Sadly, I find that most Americans when summarized politically, fall within one of these two arguments. You've got the generic conservative on one side, extremely focused on their own self interest, and the success of their country and only their country; and then on the other hand you got the slightly less dim-witted moderate, that seems enlightened enough to be more concerned with the welfare of foreign countries, but yet in a combination of arrogance and ingorance is thoroughly convinced that somehow the American system is the greatest in the world. They'll say: "We've got it better off than anyone else -we've got it great, we all get what we earn in this country because of course it's fair, it's America. You can live the American dream; all you have to do is work hard and you'll be happy. Just think of all the other 3rd world countries whose people starve every day, who are you to do so much as complain about your petty American problems." But the truth, is that this argument too is nonsense; all these things are relative, and while other countries have it bad in some ways, America has it bad in others. Americans may be relatively wealthy, and grotesquely plump with their junk foods, but there is a different part of them that is suffering that isn't quite physical. There are those that are dissatisfied with their country, not because they are spoiled, but because some basic need in them as human beings is not being met. And so long as that's true forget about who has it worse. We suffer, and it should be a basic human right that we can enjoy life as our birthright, not something to be earned.
Sometimes I feel we're losing touch with our humanity and that mabye we'd all be much happier living with the monkeys.
Oh wow...I'm utterly stupefied by this.
Great tool for anyone that uses Last.fm and Grooveshark. I hear Grooveshark is implementing a UI for Last.fm support soon, but as a stand alone player, this already does the job quite nicely.
Network, probably a movie I should watch.
I don't think I've ever even seen a similarity as high as 69% on StumbleUpon before. I don't even have more than a 57% with my own twin brother, which is pretty much the same thing as having a 57% with myself.
I'm of the opinion that the compatibility system is completely bent to display constant dissimilarity, and the fact that we still have a 69% despite that I think is saying something.
"Photoshop, you get that with apple, you don't get that with a PC."
You've got to be kidding me. These are the most absurd Mac vs. PC arguments I have ever seen. And imagine that, it's coming from a news channel broadcasted on national television.
This shouldn't need to be said, but to anyone who still thinks this is "real", it's not.
Animusic, in my opinion, has received a ridiculous amount of undeserved attention, much of it due to misleading information passed on from incredibly ignorant people to even more incredibly ignorant people; people who actually believed this to be a real music machine.
On a side note, I think a much more interesting video would be one that actually explains the technology and work that went behind this.
True or not, I'm amazed I've never heard of this till now.
A romantic short filled with incredible slow motion cinematography and special effects. Somehow, though saturated with limerence, it manages to stay out of the realm of the cheesy & kitsch. Also, excellent music.
Yeah, that makes me happy.
Techno/dance music pretty much guarantees to ruin any what-would-otherwise-be-good video compilations.

Google's censorship in China is lifted without the consent of the Chinese government, this may get interesting.
