Jesus is My Friend

So my sister subjected me to this video, and I'm going to share the love. Can I tell you that my favorite moment comes at 1:57 when they cut back to the background singers. Watch the guy with the beard (it can be when you skip back to this section because so far everyone loves this section). My favorite line comes in just before this. Apparently Jesus is like a mounty, so everyone has been wrong about Jesus being Jewish - he's Canadian.

World of Goo Song by Jonathan Mann

So I was reading boingboing and they had "The 3 Rules of the Internet" by Jonathan Mann.

I liked it so much I checked out his website. And there I found a song dedicated to an excellent video game that came out last year - World of Goo. And yes the game is as amazing as the video and song make it look.

I love this video by the Presidents of the United States of America. It is definitely a gem in the non-sense music videos. Yet another reason to love the '90's - ridiculously briliant music videos.

Changedotgov: Join the health care conversation

This is the newest video from President-elect Obama's transition team. They had asked the people of America what they thought about healthcare and have thousands of comments. So they posted this video to catch everyone up and ask for even more input. That's cool, but what I really love is Tom Daschle's glasses.

BoingBoing Dirty Dancing Death Elf

On they have BoingBoing tv, which is fantastic and random. This video is just a fun way to start the weekend. And really, is there much better than random dancing from game avatars?

The Machine is Us/ing Us

I love this video because it beautifully demonstrates the argument that our relationship to machines, and especially the internet, is incredibly complicated. We have created each of the technologies that we use on a regular basis, but we are also being created by our use of these technologies. And as we and our technology advance, this intermingling of both identities will become even more difficult to sort out. The guy that created this video is brilliant.
