This song has become THE classic western yodeling tune, and it sure is popular with the young ladies/girls. Thing is, I've always considered the first verse to be prurient innuendo and the second verse is just a cop-out to allow for performances in more "wholesome" contexts. Just me and my filthy mind? Anyway, I like yodeling too. This guy can really hit all that crazy Bavarian wackiness:
I know I have posted this before, but I absolutely love this video. I am bored out of my mind and if you have not seen this video of trials riding in Scotland it is a must see.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z19zFlPah-o
My brother won a pumpkin firing contest today with this device. 375 feet - it could take on Augusta. Funnily, he was able to use his past experience building bungee cords during his years with Great Canadian Bungee.
The Sherpas (sherpascinema.com) are proud to present All.I.Can: a two-year feature film project that fuses our passions for riding and exploring the mountains with our potential to help the environment. The film strives to unite global mountain culture and bind us together as the leaders of a green revolution. We must be inspired to do all we can for the environment, and we must learn how to take that first tiny step in the right direction.
A delightful 15 minute video, which won the Academy Award a few years ago for animated short. A Norwegian/Canadian production, narration in English by Liv Ullmann. Better yet, one of the characters is a very distant relative.
Edit - yes, sometimes I self-bump, by way of deleting and reposting. When a post is still the last in a thread, and there may still be some life in it, it seems an acceptable tactic, within reason.
haha, yea such a weird one!!! can you imagine how much weirdness wouldn't exist without youtube!?!?! haha. i found that one because my gf was showing me the 'peanut butter jelly' song and that one came up after it.
edit: pmmmttfft!! that guy was all hardcore and 'f*#king this' or whatever in german? and.... ouch! haha
Going terminator with its robots. Getting closer to deployment.
New Mar 2013 sh%t is amazingly creeply.
They put jaws on a 4 leg berserker. Shows it biting heavy concrete blocks, hercs them over its shoulder to shatter on the floor yards away. Plus cow robots, Arnold robots, and a sand flee robot that jumps to the top of buildings to spy then jumps down and rolls away.
There's much more to the story with this one…. and the quality for this viewing is poor (mono, not stereo) but this one just flashed in my mind and brought back much laughter….
Thought I'd look on the You's Tubes to see if it was up…
First time I saw this I cried laughing with a girlfriend of mine… Now, without the back story we only get the funny bits of climax for this one. The funniest part for me was when the magician/conductor changes poochini into an islander getting' tribal…
And for this one, I got a kick out of the cow reporting the fencing to the sheriff

Brandon, I don't watch Young Turks regularly. Just found this Pat Robertson gem via www.philly.com.
Here's a good video from today.
The world's largest rocket operating successfully launched today, August 28th 2013 at 18:03 UTC from Vandenberg Air Force in California. The 23 story rocket carried the top secret NROL-65 payload into orbit for the National Reconnaissance Office.
This thing can carry a 50,000 pound payload into orbit.
Jingy, great video and it reminds me that I'll never go back to work for a firm that is scared of any of its employees making a mistake. I just left a firm that is culturally terrified of giving their people any freedom to be creative and grow from making mistakes. I feel sorry for everyone still at that company.
A guy mountain biking in front of me, on a path next to a river was attacked by a Canadian Goose. All I can say is the poking the goose head and neck out of his back wheel was horrific. And the goose was harmed, badly, in this incident. I hate those Cryptosporidium infested creatures.
The internet is rife with layman's explanations of some complicated things. Understanding something is great. It is also great to get a bath in the real complexity - occasionally.
This is one. The search is on to find how it is the four forces, gravity, E&M, strong force( quarks) and the weak force have the strengths they do. String theory seems not to be advancing, some say, and this talk goes back to the Kalusa Klein model that introduced only one extra dimension back in 1921.
The speaker develops this theory with the express purpose of discovering what accelerator search strategies at the LHC might yield data supporting the 3+1 model.
While in school I sat through lectures that I understood no part of. These lectures were, in some ways, a more important experience than were the ones I understood. Generally, however, I did not have the inclination to listen to these again.
The present speaker is exceptional. One gets the feeling hearing it again might be a good idea.
Filmed in the Kootenays... Trail, Nelson. I'm from B.C. originally.
I like the Detroit video way more. The Kootenay piece seemed contrived to me, because there is world class skiing just a few miles away. Not so much in Detroit :)
edit - Though as a kid growing up in BC, i would've been stoked to have had the concept of riding rails and making use of what we had in town. Instead, we tried to skied sagebrush covered hillsides with a foot of snow, chip piles at the sawmill, and practiced late '70s freestyle ballet on the grass in the backyard.
some of the tricks in the vdo are powered by towline "catapult" launcher. What kids can save up for nowadays... Commercially avail. for about US$5k.
watching this again... I'd rather ski the Kootenay streets than Detroit .
A half hour documentary about a 70 year old woman who has lived in the wilderness of Siberia her entire life. Her father took the family there to escape Stalin's rule, and she has only been into the nearest city 6 times.
For a moment there is a window of opportunity.
It is fleeting and slips away all too fast.
Both empty and full at the same time.
Knowing that being just fine is just fine and does not need to be anything more.
Being ok with being ok with oneself is better than anyone gave credit for.
It does not need more, no extensions needed, no endless striving for it, no searching.
Its best when allowed to be.
Asking what if that was the point of it all, what if it was just an egg set down gently in the warm ooze to hatch into you and everything around you at this time and that's all there is….
That reminds me, there's this Weird Al video I saw recently that kind of impressed me. It's not like his usual song parody stuff, it's more of a satiric black humor piece about everyday relationships in American society. The music is strange and melodic and fits perfectly the banality of the relationships being satirized and the whole thing makes me want to drop everything right now and go out climbing.
