Throughout the last few months that I have been watching YouTube, I have come across some really funny, sometimes sexy, and just plain really great videos. Since I don’t have the technological means to make videos to post on there, I am considering that as a possible career move. I have heard that quite a few people have posted some videos that actually resulted in them becoming movie and TV stars. Forget going on “Survivor” or any of those shows. All you need is a video or digital camera, Internet access, and a dream.
Among my favorite videos on YouTube are basically cat videos. There are two series on YouTube that I love very much. One show is called “The Cat Diaries” and that is about two cats that are growing up from kittenhood up. That show is just so cute and I even like the opening credits before every episode. There’s also the show, “Mean Kitty.” I really love that one. It’s about this cat that likes to eat hands and get into all kinds of mischief.
In addition to cat videos, I have come across some really good music videos; some old commercials, including the first-ever Ronald McDonald commercials from the 60’s in which Ronald actually looked like a very creepy guy; and a racy perfume ad featuring Diddy. Some of these videos actually have given me some ideas as to the videos that I want to do once I obtain the ability to make videos and put them online.
There is one video that I actually consider to be my favorite video on YouTube (and it is the first video on the playlist) is a video called “Killer Cats” and it is basically a slideshow that contains funny pictures of cats with guns and other things and set to heavy metal music. It is actually a really funny video, and I simply cannot get enough of it.
Yep, you find lots of stuff on YouTube and I should seriously consider that the latest step in my evolution as a full-fledged Internet personality. It’s something for the future.
Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending the 2007 Herkimer Bicentennial Parade which commemmorated the 200th anniversary of the incorporation of Herkimer, N.Y. It was really exciting and I got plenty of photos. I just finished uploading all of the photos I took of the event from a CD I had made at Wally World. The reason why I had to wait until now to upload them was that I didn’t have enough money to pick them up until yesterday.
There were a wide variety of floats and people in the parade. Most of them had to do with the Revolution and had many marchers dressed in Revolutionary War-era costumes. Some of them were basic floats with bands, clowns, beauty queens and themes that dealt with historic events in Herkimer. There were also military marchers, public officials, and even Ronald McDonald was in the parade.
Of course there was one piece of Herkimer history that was not represented in the parade and that is the piece of history that I am involved in: Two individuals by the name of Chester and Grace. Of course they were last year, but I still think that they should have been represented. There just wasn’t enough interest.
Anyway, I have just uploaded the photos into a new set on my Flickr photo site. I have just added a link to that new set on my profile. It was a lot of fun and I am glad that I went. I didn’t really get to partake in the after-parade party in Myer’s Park afterwards because I had to work that night. Then as I was going into Wally World after a brief stop-off at Mickey D’s, they were having the fireworks display outside. I didn’t really see too much of that because I had to eat dinner before work that night. Besides, fireworks aren’t usually my thing anyway.
