Addictive YouTube videos In light of some recent YouTube video addictions, I have made a quick list of a few videos from the past year or two that I’ve watched dozens of times (literally). The list mainly includes silly mashups, remixes and parodies of pop culture (featuring Auto-Tune, Lil Jon, etc.).

Most addictive YouTube videos of all time
(that I can remember at the moment, what with all my ADHD hey what’s that?)

  1. I’m On A Boat” and more from The Lonely Island
  2. AutoTune the News #2 and more episodes from schmoyoho
  3. Cooking by the Book” A Lil’ Bigger Mix by Mastgrr. It’s a piece of cake to bake a pretty cake! Also see the “Bananaphone” remix from HatPerson
  4. Rap Chop! It’s Vince with Slap Chop! Also see Press Hop (sports soundbites) and more from djsteveporter
  5. Might Putty Dub!Billy Mays kaboom! dub and more informercial dubs from Jabo0odyDubs
  6. The Black20 Trailer Park: 300 – PG Version (AKA “Caketown”)

In addition to loads of other funny 300 parodies (like LisaNova does 300), I would also be remiss to not mention the dozens of “Dear Sister” parodies.

Must stop self from watching these again. Perhaps a 12-step program?

I felt the same way about this awesome mashup video in 2006: “Star Trek + Nine Inch Nails = Closer.”

LEGO Arcade, 8-bit design and Wimbledon

I liked this: LEGO Arcade. There’s much more great LEGO animation from MlCHAELHlCKOX where this came from, such as: Super Lego Mario (Level 1).

For some actual LEGOs, see the “bat country” scene from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas at Brickshelf.

Also, Philip DeFranco is a funny dude. Check out some of his YouTube clips.

Tokyo Zokei University’s Open Campus has a really nice web page design. I’m a sucker for the 8-bit aesthetic. Read more: “The Bestest College Webpage Ever.”

I’m looking forward to seeing what happens at Wimbledon. With Rafael Nadal out, will Roger Federer win his record 15th major and sixth Wimbledon title? Do Andy Roddick or Andy Murray have a chance? Will the Williams sisters meet in another final? Can anyone seriously challenge them right now?

Lastly, I am thinking of starting a “365 Days Project” on Flickr, beginning July 1. Currently contemplating possible photo themes and my motivation to commit to taking at least one (hopefully compelling) photo every day for a year.
