The Yin/Yang of official/unofficial blogging as one: two video examples

Here’s a good example of the challenges of posting stuff here that will reach different audiences, potentially in different ways.

The first one is pretty easy, and something I might before have put on my “official” blog, because it is an example of a “smart mob” phenomenon that gets talked up once in a while in computers and writing circles. From the group/organization (?) Improv Everywhere comes “Frozen Grand Central.”

Okay, and now the yang, the sort of thing I would have posted on my unofficial blog: I personally find Sarah Silverman funny, but she also is really really good at being pretty darn offensive and/or annoying. This video is an excellent example.

Helpful info before viewing:

  • Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel have been dating for years.
  • There is very liberal use of a bleeped out naughty word that begins with “F.” So if you are offended by such things….
  • It gets kind of repetitive and annoying by the end.
  • Matt Damon must have a pretty damn good sense of humor.

    “We’re sorry, this video is no longer available.”

    Oh, when you get the “we’re sorry this video is no longer available” thing, always try to reload a couple of times first. I got it to work again this morning.

  4. I just tried again — that was pretty good.
