What do the cyber whores of the internets do when YouTube is down?

I don't remember boobs in that old video. In fact, I recall it being so wholesome it made me ill.

How bout a little story? I, too, clicked on the link and found that YouTube was under a "scheduled downtime", and it reminded me of something a sound engineer friend told me once. He was assistant engineer on an Art Garfunkel recording session. Without getting quite as explicit as my friend did, I'll just say that it seemed to my friend that ol' Art was a Grade A Prima Donna and a real self-important prick. (Now, that's just what I've been told, OK? I do trust this guy though, I don't think he'd lie about this.) Anyway, Garfunkel was listening to playback of a vocal take he had just done, in the control room, when in walked a studio employee who had to get a tape machine out of the control room. He walked in and rolled it out of the room, and all the while Garfunkel looked at him in open-mouthed amazement. The nerve of doing that while Art was in the room! Anyway, Art stood up and yelled: "Psychological downtime! Psychological downtime!" In other words, he was off-the-clock for the duration of, well, I suppose the duration of the psychological distress
that this incident caused him. So, often when I hear or see the term "downtime" I'm reminded of this story.

If they're anything like me, they say "Oh well, may as well check out some of liquorice's FPPs.."

Despite being spun upside down in a still photo, the sax player didn't get dizzy and was able to lay into that "hot" sax solo. [comment from the old, old, old post, which I don't remember seeing]

This was my thought while I watched. How do they get any studying done with all that spinning around?

Old and overexposed. One of the IFilm top viral videos of 2005.

Old and in the way

They Used to heed the words he said
But that was yesterday...

I'll thank you all to keep your snarky hands off my alma mater.

This is that new variety of web popup that automatically spoons out your eyes for you, huh?

Thanks. Thanks for the blindness.

It makes me sad. That's a severely economically deprived area. And apparently also rather poorly nourished.

Actually, Boone NC is far far far from being an economically deprived area. I grew up in Boone from 2 years old until I left high school. Property in Boone is outrageously expensive, as most of the people who live and work in Boone are associated with the University and the real estate market there. The far surrounding areas of Bethel, Mabel, Cove Creek and the Globe are in some cases economically deprived, but for the most part are owned by successful tobacco and Christmas tree farmers.

We also have great restaurants there, and we eat a-plenty thank you very much!!!
