Considering the nature of the Internet, I'll probably be deluged with people sent over by search engines on a quest for illicit materials.
But this is not what this post is about.
For those of you who aren't in on all the miniature sensations created by YouTube here in Asia, let me catch you up.
The Korean guitar kid. Pachabel's Canon at the speed of lightning-fast fingers and total precision.
Amazing, this kid. He deserves whatever accolades he receives, which is more than I can say for the insipidly vapid interviewers who titter on with him in this news clip.
God, this reminds me so clearly why I don't watch television.
Now, here's something inspiring from the Middle Kingdom. In case you missed these two Chinese kids singing the Backstreet Boys or whatever, they are a hoot. And watch the kid in the back, just chilling on the computer the whole time.
Is the kid on the left tripping you out or what?
And now, for the grand finale. Many of you have likely seen these two Korean girls just dominating the mikes in this noraebang. They are karaoke and camera masters, and they were taking no prisoners. The little video they made in the karaoke room (many of the nicer ones in Korea have all kinds of audio/video functions such that you can walk out with your own CD or music video in your hands) is priceless.
They got so famous that they ended up on Korean TV several times, and on this show, the producers did a lot better job of featuring their talent.
Every time I see these two girls, I am reminded of the pure frivolity of youth and am briefly broken out of the fog of life's frustrations. The gesticulations of the girl on the left is enough to break me into a smile even on the gloomiest of days.
And that's good medicine. .
