A-Z: You Knew YouTube Was Coming, Didn't You?

A picture may say a thousand words, but sometimes a video says all that and more. Which is why YouTube is one of:
My 26 Favorite Ways to Piss Away Time Do Valuable Research on the Interwebs.
 After all, we have to know what's trending, right?

 A few months ago, I stumbled across this video clip on somebody's blog, and fell in love...

Loved the song, loved the performance (both musically and visually), loved BeardGuy.  Loved loved loved. Bought their last album plus this single and played this song on my iPod, over and over and over again. (Seeing as this clip has had 9 bazillion hits and counting, I am not the only one who fell in love.)

And then I found the original version of this song, by the original artist, Gotye. In some ways I like it better than the first, and in other ways, it's almost too intimate, and I'm not referring to the nudity. (This one's SFW - Safe For Work, the nudity is artistic.)

Yes, I bought his album, too, and that also has received many many plays on my iPod. It's great.

Sometimes I see something on YouTube that touches my heart and makes me cry...
(if you want the entire story on Christian the lion, it's on YouTube, not just the short clips.  Start here

Sometimes it's not music, but some other weird "thing" that's got me mesmerized...

Totally hilarious, these two clips are totally NSFW (Not Safe For Work) but I can swear that most women have experienced one side or another of these portrayals

Since I read and write erotica, sometimes it can be... challenging to finish a scene and no boyfriend in sight. But now all I have to do is watch one of those clips, and somehow it takes the edge right off.

No further urge to shoot pool, with or without a rope.

My A-Z theme is My 26 Favorite Ways to Piss Away Time Do Valuable Research on the Interwebs.

Truly, sometimes an idea from a "pointless" fun site or post or photograph does result in pages and pages of writing. Or at least a blog post or two.

Do you get hooked on YouTube videos?
What's your favorite - comedy clips, music, self-help?
Got other fun sites beginning with the letter "Y"?

(P.S. I am going to be incommunicado for part of the day, so it may take me a little while to approve your comment. It's not you, it's me.)
