too many words by laura lemay

buncha random videos for fall

Still more to-be-blogged list cleanout. I used linked images here rather than YouTube embeds because embeds don’t work right in feeds.

Battle of the Bands

This ultraviolent but insanely brilliant vid went around a few months ago. If you didn’t see it then you should go see it now. I particularly like the Dead Kennedys/Van Halen logo battle.

Laptop Battery Fire

PC Pitstop intentionally sets up conditions where a laptop battery overheats and blows up. This is one of these videos which is mostly fun to watch because of all the manic giggling in the background.

Women – Know your limits!

Originally a comedy sketch from a BBC show called Harry Enfield and Chums. Just realistic enough to be scary. I got the original link from Shelley Powers(although her video link was actually on this site).

Microsoft WSYP Program

“We believe that if our customers are experiencing pain, Microsoft employees should share the pain with them. This is where We Share Your Pain or WE-SYP comes in.” Starts slow. Gets better. This was an actual Microsoft video from a MS TechNet event in Europe.

The Perfect Car for Women

I would buy that.

Zefrank: How to hire a Web Developer

I am late on the Zefrank bandwagon. It’ll take me a while to catch up on the ENTIRE YEAR of video postings from The Show but this bit on hiring web developers is really funny (warning, slightly adult content). See also the Thanksgiving episode which is brill.

Mythbusters Outtakes

I could watch this over and over and over again and laugh and laugh and laugh.

Various Cat Videos

The point of the internet, of course, is to enable cute cat video.

  • Marcus vs the HP Deskjet. Printer loses. Spawned an entire genre on YouTube of “cat attacks printer” video.
  • Sleepy Kitten. I practically died of cuteness watching this.
  • Kitten iPod Nano Commercial. “1 song. Impossibly Small.” Cute.
  • Kitty Cat Dance: This is really bent. I first saw this video like six months ago and thought “wow, that’s kind of dumb.” And then it would NOT GET OUT OF MY HEAD. I pass it on here so that I do not have to suffer alone.
