After a series of fairly long posts this one’s going to be short, for me, as I introduce you to something I just discovered.
It’s a website called SnagFilms, and basically it’s a site that’s collected all sorts of documentaries about almost anything you can imagine. I can’t even remember how I found the site, but it’s been somewhat fascinating to check out.
These aren’t a series of short, 10 minute documentaries though. These are full length videos; the embed below, for instance, is just a sample of a documentary on Madonna that’s actually an hour and 7 minutes long. There’s also 4 documentaries on Madonna; guess she’s been around long enough to accrue at least that many documentaries about her. lol
I watched another one about China’s “lost girls”, talking about how many Chinese just ditch girls because they want boys and they try to dodge the state rule of only being allowed to have one child. I’m not getting into it further, but just wanted to show that there are lots of videos on different topics.
It’s too bad you can’t download these files; at least I haven’t found a way to do it, because I’d burn them to DVDs and watch on the big screen TV instead. Still, it’s nice knowing this is here and if you’re looking for something specific, you just might find it here.
