If you want Metafilter with tits, go to Fark. You may be more at home there anyhow.

I thought that you meant that the young lady's name was Tits Youtubefilter. That would be a funny name for someone to have.

I cry a little because I've been avoiding the advertisement on Yahoo.com -- in fact going so far as to figure out whatever greasemonkey code necessary to kill the 'New' Yahoo video campaign, and because it was MetaFilter I clicked it first while I was reading it.

The refreshed by Pepsi bit made me giggle gleefully, tho..

Maybe the poster meant tits in the English sense, i.e. "Oi. wotta tit"

It's not really analogous to metafilter, with the exception of the claim to pointing to the "best of the web" referenced on their page. However, it's presented in a hierarchical fashion as a top 9 countdown, with a non-transparent anonymous process creating the day's content (who knows who thinks those 9 sites are the best of the web).

So it's really yahoo's version of VH1's webcrap show hosted apparently by the same woman who "hosts" the pay-per-view preview channel for Comcast.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maria_Sansone

She is also a contributor to ESPN, MTVU & NESN (New England Sports Network) covering the Boston Red Sox. She is known for being the youngest TV reporter in the history of network television (12 years, 6 months old), doing sideline reporting for the ABC broadcast of the Little League World Series. She started at age eleven when she hosted her own children's sport show, Down to Size on WJET-TV ABC in Erie, Pennsylvania. She went on to interview Jim Kelly of the Buffalo Bills; Michael Jordan; Bill Cowher (coach of the Pittsburgh Steelers); baseball legend Tommy Lasorda; and others, all before her 13th birthday.

And her degree is from the Newhouse School (prestigious media/journalism program) at Syracuse University, so apparently she's not a 'brainless bimbo' and has wanted to be a reporter since before she even had breasts.

The first time around I couldn't get the video stream to load properly. So for some inexplicable reason I gave it another go.

The whole reason the internet is so unquestionably awesome is because I don't have to put up with obnoxious "talent" presenting stale, over-mediated "content" with ridiculously condescending "dialog" and "banter".

Guh. The best thing I can say about it is that the crappy giant Flash video makes her twitch and stutter all over the screen like some kind of Tourettes-fugued side-show specimen. This amusement lasted for approximately 15 seconds, though the glitching continued apace. Granted this has a lot to do with the ancientness of my computer, but I don't have these problems anywhere except in the heaviest of flash/shockwave files.

The content is almost entirely ancient and obviously self-linking. The presentation is stale, unconvincing and lifeless. The format and interface is excruciatingly painful.

And frankly, she's more plastic than cute, more RealDoll than Persona, and much more annoying than tolerable.

Yahoo, I've been with you since the very beginning. Since the days when you were in a dorm room closet and you could print out your entire index on a few sheets of paper. I was there when you rolled out webmail, and I still have that account. I hardly ever check that account anymore. I remember your first redesign and your first banner ad. But frankly you suck diseased donkey butthole, and you've been sucking at it real hard for a long, long time. You didn't just jump the shark, you copulated profusely with it's diseased corpse while riding some kind of giant Ferris wheel of shark-jumping, donkey-butt sucking festival of unrelenting crapulence.

In short: good riddance. Best of luck staying aloft on the liferaft that is Flickr.

Why pick 'nine'? Is it arbitrary? There's some tv show coming out this fall or something called "the Nine." Is that related? Is it cuz Sansone's supposed to be a nine? Who said Pepsi was a ten? I never understood why Bo Derek was a ten. I wanna be on the planet where Janeane Garofalo is a ten.

I kinda wish somebody would whip up a daily video that summarizes MeFi for me so I won't have to click so much. And someone could define all the big words for me.

From Maria Sansone's 360 page:

Hey 9ers, you have to check out today's show.... Richie Simmons, "The Hoff" (as in David), a talking chimp, and poodle aerobics. Does it get much better than that?? I love my job.

So, "The Hoff" is out with a new music video (awesomely bad!). We couldn't show you the whole thing, but it's in YOUR best interest to watch it all (maybe twice). You won't be sorry.

So? I'm sure there are plenty of similar I've-been-doing-this-since-I-was-a-tot stories out there, but you never hear about them, do you? Know why? 'Cause of the tits.

You think it's some kind of amazing coincidence that the people who are most successful with television are also good-looking (at least, in the traditional sense)? Yeah, yeah, talent ambition intelligence hard working Fulbright fellow in television anchoring... sure. But hot, too. If you don't have the "good looking," it's all for naught. And if you do have the "good looking," the rest of that stuff is just gravy so they can fall back on the position that "We only hired her because she's so talented" bullshit.
