17 June 2010


I'm taking a break today from news, opinion, remniscence and education. Here instead are a few of my favorite recent YouTube short videos, varied and brief.

Economic Hitmen -- a razor-sharp animated summary of US economic and military hegemony.

Picnic Table Bike -- I hope this isn't all there is to do in Boulder, CO.

The Devil Went Down to Jamaica -- a witty Muppets musical sendup of the Charlie Daniels Band's hit The Devil Went Down to Georgia.

Tacoma Narrows Bridge Collapse -- hyperventilating newsreel reporter just needs to research resonance frequencies (wind and bridge oscillation) to explain how it happened.

Police Officer Hits on a Woman Driver -- dry satire on smooth operators.

Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird -- the highest, fastest, most successful spy plane ever flown.
