Geeks Declare War on Youtube (no video included)

No video in this post but some youtuber related news:

A well-known blogger, who has contributed some of Youtube's most popular clips, has had it up to here with their overzealous censorship and has now vowed to destroy them by reporting all of their most popular files for copyright violation:

Screw YouTube

...I do have one thing left to do: Ruin YouTube. Since it is so easy to get someone kicked from YouTube, I am going to launch an assault on the service. I am going to start with the most popular uploaders, and report every possibly copyright infringing video in their account. I won’t be breaking any rules, just robbing YouTube users of content they would have probably lost in the end anyway. I’d rather someone else become the video sharing site of choice (and no, not Google; they wouldn’t be any better), something those of us using video on the web can rely on and trust to stick to the letter of the law, not to the fears of lawyers.

Every day, I will destroy at least one account. I will only target those with copyright infringing content. When I am done, the only popular videos on YouTube will be those with zero commercial value. We will see how well the service does without the Daily Show and South Park entire episodes that are its real bread and butter.

Any objections?

Tim Dog and KRS One "I Get Wrecked"

Tim Dog on the mic: comedy in its purest form. Especially when KRS is there to play his straight man.

Audio Two "I Get the Papers" Video

An 80's hip-hop classic straight from Video Music Box, complete with Ralph Mcdaniels intro! From that brief period in hip-hop history when havoing a bodyguard was considered something to brag about. Ahh, innocence lost...

3rd Bass Live on Arsenio: "Pop Goes the Weasel" 1991

Note Richie Rich destroying the turntables at the end, as MC Serch exhorts him to take his clothes off and Gilbert Gottfried nods approvingly from his throne. I guess we should've known at this point, that the 90s would take hip-hop to some strange places.

Little Girl Singing a Song

Apologies in advance. Sometimes you just have to post the cute little girl singing a song. It is a force of nature.

Nelly Furtado - Promiscuous Girl video

The first video and single from Nelly Furtado's upcoming album.. co-starring a freakishly muscular Timbaland, and Justin "I'm that punk who sold Janet out" Timberlake. Not bad, I guess.. I'm more of an Esthero man myself.

Bulgarian Hip-Hop - "Increase the Volume" by Mi6o The Slap

I guess the Big Pimpin video really had a lasting impact over there.

Bush Reacting to Colbert Routine

It turns out I am physically incapable of watching Bush for this long, but if you think you can handle 7 minutes of his constipated fake smiling, check out ABC's raw footage of President Bush reacting to Colbert's speech last week (the last, pre-recorded part of the speech).

Juelz Santana "Clockwork" Video

Juelz Santana's new video "Clockwork" which seems to be begging for a Flavor Flav cameo.

Michel Gondry & David Cross: "One Day"

A really weird short film starring David Cross as a piece of doodoo that Michel Gondry first tries to flush, then adopts as a son.

Meshell Ndegeocello: Bass Solo for Arsenio - 1994

Meshell sits down with Arsenio and brings her Les Paul Gibson bass, to demonstrate the bassline for Prince's "Let's Work" among other funkisms.

Oscar De La Hoya vs. Ricardo Mayorga - Round 6

Oscar De La Hoya knocks out Mayorga in the 6th round.. so much for all that yapping, Ricardo. The commentators sound so desperate at the end for something exciting to talk about in boxing.. y'all need to just give it up and roll with the MMA.

Frank Zappa vs. Robert Novak on Crossfire - 1986

Great stuff here, big Frank taking on the Brain Police:

Great clip of possibly my favorite blues man.

Seriously, Minnie, Sammy, Richard and a lion attack, all in the same clip.. you cannot possibly pack more cool stuff into one clip:

The "Titanica" Sketch

A classic Mr. Show sketch:

remind me to look for that "Rap: The Musical" thing they did...

Mr T. - "Treat Your Mother Right"

Maybe we can get Mr. T to bust into MTV's "Yo Momma" show like this, and then whoop Wilmer Valderrama's ass for good measure? I would pay one thousand dollars cash monnnnny to see that.

Malcolm X Montage

A collection of clips from various sources, in honor of Malcolm's birthday last Friday:

Nelly Furtado on SNL: Promiscuous Girl and Maneater

Hate to be the hater, but I think I liked Nelly Furtado better when she was an Esthero wannabe, instead of a Fergie wannabe. Actually watching this SNL performance of "Promiscuous" reminds of the horrible rap skit on Prince's "Love 2 the 9s."

Excellence as usual from Robert Smigel, and his "Fun With Real Audio" segment on SNL:

George Clinton "Do Fries Go With That Shake?" - 1986

Whoooo yeah.. this takes me back. One of my favorite George Clinton solo albums (R&B Skeletons in the Closet).. I believe Vanessa Williams was one of the backup singers on this?

New "Superman Returns" Trailer

The Kevin Spacey angle is enough to hook me.. and that last scene with the bullet is kinda dope. This better be real good though, to make up for Bryan Singer abandoning the X Men franchise.

Trojan Nuclear Plant Implosion

Some folks in Rainier Oregon thought it would be cool to watch the local nuclear facility cooling tower get demolished. And they were right, it is pretty cool to watch.. although I'd be feelnig paranoid about hanging out in front an exploding nuclear plant. Maybe these guys will also post some footage after they have babies that glow in the dark..

The first video ever made by the Geto Boys, two years before they blew up with "Mind Playin Tricks on Me." This track was on their "Grip It On That Other Level" album.

Bugs Bunny vs. the Nazis

A weirder-than-average Merrie Melodies cartoon, highlighted by Bugs Bunny impersonating Hitler.

Black Buddafly Feat. Fabolous - "Bad Girl" Video

Pretty much a paint by numbers G-Unitarian groove, I suppose, but still kinda funky. Anybody know who produced this one?

Juvenile - "Way I Be Leanin" Video

Juvenile joining forces with Mike Jones, Paul Wall, Skip, and (my new favorite emcee name) Wacko.

Jackson 5 on Johnny Carson: "Too Late to Change the Time" 1973

A nice, kinda bittersweet clip cuz it's from that brief period when Michael was fully grown but not yet shapeshifting:

Jimi Hendrix on the Dick Cavett Show - 1969

Jimi talks with Dick then performs Hear My Train A Comin. Also subtitled in Portuguese, if that is helpful to anyone.. cool segment either way, Jimi has such a gentle energy to him, emanates such humility and serenity..

(can anyone explain the "you wanna leave a call" thing? I am not hip to Cavett's hip talk)

Japanese Eddie Murphy Commercial

Eddie hamming it up for the Toyota Celica.. I hope he got a lot of money for this:
