YouTube for an old generation, a new site by Rich Collier.

New Yorkers may remember Rich from MetroTV's Subway Q&A, a show that placed Collier in the bowels of the NYC subway system accosting regular folk on camera.

He also made some short segments for the non-denominational New Morning program.

I would test to see if there's a "getoffmylawn.com" but I fear it might be NSFW.

Viral marketing for viagra, you are so flagged.

Heh heh. Some of this stuff is funny, but too many man-in-the-street comments, at this rapid-fire pace, gets a little old. Too many of the same people interviewed as well. They should have more footage together, with more different people, before launching a site like this, IMO. But I must say, it's nice to hear regular old New Yorkers for a change though: I got a little nostalgic, there...

Actually, on further viewing, they've actually got more different people talking here than I thought.

I'd pay to watch angry old people in their wheelchairs and rockers, railing on about the youth of today. Preferably using a selection of funny words. And while I'm in a drunken state.

This is nutty. And yet wacky at the same time.

That old asshole needs to learn himself some proper kerning.

I'd pay to watch angry old people in their wheelchairs and rockers doing extreme sports and crazy Jackass antics. You ever seen Johnny Knocksville dress up like an old guy? That's classic stuff!

I'm certain that the reason I hate young people is that I'm not one of them anymore. But it makes me feel better when I realize they'll be old sooner than they think.

"Young People" called me a little while ago and guess what: they hate you too. Coincidence?

I hate guys that wear bluetooth headphones when they are not on the phone. Young or old. Hate 'em.

34 seconds into "Cellphones & Technology"
Man on Street: And every month they come out with another new gadget.

Interviewer: Where you were coming up, did you have anything like that? Was there something that you kept putting you money into that was essentially a waste?

Man on Street: [Smirking] Drugs.
Ha.

As a 28 year old who hates young people, my hope is that the age of young people loathing gets lower and lower until everyone just sits around hating babies.

I hate zygotes.

As I understand it, if you're under forty, you're supposed to hate anyone over forty. If you're over forty, you're supposed to hate anyone under forty. I'm thirty-nine, so I hate everybody.
