Videos On This Blog, 2007 – June 2008
Posted by Mitch Mitchell on Jan 17, 2010
You know, when I started out on this quest to link to posts of mine that have videos on them, it never even entered my mind that I might have gone to the video vault as often as I seem to have gone. Once I got through February 2008, I realized that I was going to have to break this up somehow, otherwise this post could have been a major mess. Therefore, I decided to go only through June 2008, and since this blog began December 2007, that’s included as well.
It’s funny, but early on my posts were relatively short, so sometimes I only had one paragraph and then a video. I think I’ve come a long way. Still, I wanted to have a link to videos because every once in awhile I’m looking for something, and, well, I think some videos are just entertaining as anything. And who knows, you might find something in here you like and want to check out. So, here are the links to the videos, with a brief take on what the post was about:
I Still Believe – I love Mariah Carey and I love the song in this music video, even when Brenda K Starr did it.
Stout Hearted Men – If you ever watched Wonder Years, you probably died laughing when this scene played surrounding the boys glee club.
Martin Luther King Jr – The Finale – this was Dr. King’s final speech before he was assassinated the next day; timely since tomorrow is the King Holiday.
Turn The World Around – Harry Belafonte & the Muppets did this as the last song when he was on the Muppet Show. Turns out to also be the song performed by Belafonte at Henson’s funeral.
Lizards dancing to Thriller – This was my favorite commercial during the 2008 Super Bowl, which figures since it used a Michael Jackson song
Blame It On The Boogie – A Jackson’s music video and song I happened to like.
I’m Every Woman – Chaka Khan music video.
Amp – I questioned whether this commercial during the Super Bowl was effective advertising or not.
Web Design Rap – I thought this was a pretty creative educational video about web design.
Pulp Fiction? – the Muppets take on Pulp Fiction; got an idea how much I love the Muppets?
The Oil Crisis – this is a pretty long video by a guy who says he has inside information that oil prices are being falsely manufactured to kill us with high prices.
Push It – I started out talking about human beatboxes, then decided to put in the full Salt ‘n Pepa video that the Amp commercial bit a chunk off.
A Video Parody – if anyone remembers when that goofy kid got on video and cried while telling the world to leave Britney Spears alone, they you’ll like this video, which was a parody of that one telling people to leave PCs alone during the Vista disaster & Mac commercial period
2 Legit 2 Quit – MC Hammer’s video, my favorite video & song of his.
I Want You Back – my favorite song of all time by my favorite group of all time with my favorite entertainer of all time; ’nuff said.
Never Saw It Coming – a funny video involving pandas.
