My Favourite You Tube Videos Part II

So here it is, the continuation of my favourite you tube videos. The following videos come in very handy when you are in a bad mood. There is no way that you can watch any of these videos without cracking a smile. Sometimes we get so frustrated with life. For me, these clips remind me to appreciate life and all the “little” things in it.

Move over Rover, and let Jimi take over…

I just finished watching an AMAZING special on Jimi Hendrix. It was aired on vH1 Classic. It talked a lot about the influence Bob Dyaln had on Jimi’s interest in music.

You know when you hear something and you just can’t get over how good it sounds? And you try to make everyone listen to it, and then you get frustrated because it  doesn’t have as strong of an effect on them. Thats how Jimi felt about Dylan.

Bob Dylan, if you ever happen to see this (who knows, maybe Dylan’s a blogger!) thank you. Not only for your immense contribution to classic rock, but for your heavy influence on people like Jimi who never felt more inspired than they did listening to your music.

No disrespect to the OC…

Whats up with the OC marathons on Much Music? Perhaps my opinion is slightly bias because I don’t watch The OC. However, I just don’t see the connection between a music television network and a show like The OC.

That’s really all I have to say about that.

My Favourite You Tube Videos

I have a tendency of becoming obsessed with things, especially things that I find interesting. The following videos are those that I find interesting. They are also those that I have seen 8 million times each and those that I force people to watch every chance I get.

Here is the link for the first one. The video that comes up should be called Battle at Kreuger.  Our planet, with all its amazing creatures and landscapes, is something that I find extremely interesting. If anyone has a chance to watch Planet Earth the DVD series, you MUST watch it. It will blow you away. This video will also blow you away.

Let me set the scene. I am guessing that this video was filmed by tourists on a tour of an African savanna. What they saw not only astonished the tourists, but the tour guides as well. As you watch this video, please keep in mind the food chain and the reality that lions need to eat too.

 My second video has a completely different vibe. This may sound cruel, but I am extremely amused by people falling. Not oh-my-God-that-hurt falling, but funny falling. I don’t know why, but when someone falls I usually laugh so hard that my stomach hurts as well as my face. (As long as they are not seriously injured.)

So, the following video cracks me up. My favourite fall is definately the second one. After you watch it, watch the second one again, but this time notice the brat that pushes the lady down the slide. It makes it even funnier. The video is called Funny Women Falling.

 There are plenty more where that came from, so this blog is to be continued…
