I've noticed that YouTube videos 'n such are becomin' increasingly popular with bloggers these days 'n oft times have completely replaced the written word in some of their posts. And to be as brutally honest as I possibly CAN be, whenever they ARE, more often than not I don't even click on the friggin' things. But what I wanna know is WHY are they so popular? Have we as a bloggin' society become so damn lazy that we can't even think of anything particularly interesting to write about anymore? Must we now rely on videos to spur bloggin' ideas? Do videos have THAT much power over us that they speak in a stronger tone than the usual written dialog? Or is it just quicker 'n easier to copy 'n paste a vid into yer blog to get your personal point across? I can understand usin' 'em as a tool at times to accentuate a particular post, but to just slap one in there 'n call it a bloggin' day is beyond me.
And speakin' of me ;-) I reckon ya can tell that I'm notta real big fan of YouTube, MyTube, ThisTube, YTube or even FeelLikeI'mFixin'toDieRagTube (is Country Joe MacDonald even still ALIVE, anyway?). Maybe its just that *I'M* too damn lazy...too damn lazy to have to sift thru a zillion or so what I feel are totally asinine 'n annoyin' vids to find one that actually amuses me. Maybe I just don't have the patience to do so (MAYBE, Donna?...more like DEFINITELY!). It's just that I have no damn desire to sit in front of a computer to watch somethin' that looks like a mini t.v. Hell, with my ever increasin' lack of patience I can hardly sit in front of a REAL t.v. anymore. Dependin' on my mood that day, sometimes just lookin' at the damn thing in a blog will annoy the shit outta me (but EVERYTHING annoys the shit outta me these days, so please don't take it personally).
Well, whatever the reason may be that I don't like "the tube" I really do not know, but I DO know this: if ever comes the day when I can't think of a damn thing to say in a blog, I hope at least these two words will come to mind...
