Yeah, I keep wishing that there is an actual full cast album with more songs you don't see on the video. :-/

I was prepared for the suck, but it's actually very charming.

Perfect.

I preferred the Sound of Myspace. And South Pacificbook.

I held out for as long as I could and finally exploded with laughter at "Watch the ads and it's almost like paying." It's collegehumor so I had every inclination to hate it but couldn't.

For such a poorly named and branded website, collegehumor actually has some pretty funny stuff.

Dear kindly Sergeant Cortex,
You gotta understand,
I didn't know the rulezez,
It's not fair to be banned,
I didn't mean to self-link,
I didn't mean to spam,
I paid my five bucks,
That should mean I can

Dear Officer Cortex,
You gotta admit,
You're too fast on the banhammer
And your website is shit,
You say I'm delinquent,
But its a mistake,
Send my five back or I'll bellyache

It'll be funny to watch this in five years when "facebook" sounds like "livejournal" does now, the mere mention of "twitter" makes people cringe and change the subject, and say things like "WTF is evite? Did anyone use it?"

I really, sincerely, truly dug "Ringo wants to Sing more."

Which made m cry a little on the inside.

...the mere mention of "twitter" makes people cringe and change the subject...

Even now, videos like this make it seem incredibly ridiculous. It must be the fact that I use it.

FWIW: "Puerto Rican" is not a race. West Side Story is about
ethnic and not racial clashes.

ok i have to admit i enjoyed this a bit too much :)

West Side Story was a Web -2.0 version of Romeo and Juliet.

Web negative 2.0 is a worthwhile concept, even if has to be conveyed by a nearly imperceptible hyphen.
