300,000 views!

Oh, there's no accounting for taste. Like many others I saw lonelygirl15 on youtube. Unlike all those who realized the lighting and professionalism of the editing couldn't possibly be that of an amateur, I just bought the whole thing and wondered what religion she possibly could be talking about. Now I know - it was a Hollywood fantasy about religion. Ah, that I understand.

And now I found a video that puts it all in perspective for me. It was all a large, elaborate monkey PR stunt, so says the purple monkey. For anyone who thinks this video starts slowly, just wait until after the first minute. When he started explaining how Bree and Daniel are really puppets full of purple monkeys, I started laughing that uncontrollable laugh that I wish I could find on purpose. The height of my laughter was at 1:40 when the purple monkey was explaining that Daniel was always lying down or sitting because it took fewer monkeys to run him that way. It's still pretty funny after that, but not quite the same.

I guess not everyone laughed. It only got 3 stars out of 5. It gets 5 from me and this link. Isn't it a strange world?

I'm not familiar with the lonelygirl15 thing (dial up means rarely getting to see anything from YouTube--though I did check out the Major Tom video and wrote down some thoughts that I intend to send to you soon), but I do love me some purple monkeys... :)

dial-up? What's that?

I saw a forty year-old movie on TV recently where someone was using a pencil to dial a rotary phone. How soon will people have no idea what she was doing?

Not too long from now... I was pretty young when we got rid of our rotary phone...
