No, YouTube. Let us not go.

This popped up at the top of my YouTube tonight, as though they haven’t been interrupting my programs flogging this thing for months and months. That and their ‘premium’ service — which, as far as I can tell, just lets you play videos in the background on your phone.

No, YouTube. Nobody wants this. Go away.

Anyway. Got jammed up with work tonight, ‘Shopping pictures and watching ‘Tubes.

p.s. Uncle B just reminded me — they’ve started shoving ads randomly and badly all over videos now, too. Like, plop in the middle of an album.

My time waster these days is listening to books on tape I have found on youtube. This one woman with a very young voice is reading Ted Bundy: The Phantom Prince, a chapter a week. I wish she read more but there are only 2 more weeks left. The book was written by Bundy’s gf. At first it is shocking to hear how romantic Ted was and how normal their relationship was (for the times — booze, sex, jealousy). Anyway, I highly recommend it. It’s addicting. She does other true crime books, too:

Try the Brave web browser. I’m not even aware that YouTube has ads when I watch through brave.

If you are feeling nostalgic for the days when YouTube wasn’t a slick prepackaged gluten-free, GMO-free, organically-farmed, fair-traded, totally commercial product, this is kind of fun

Heh – Sweasy!
“They” must be listening to your blog –
re ‘liberating’ the Sweeties to become M&Ms.

I use Slimjet, Tim, on account of it is fast. The ad blocker doesn’t seem to pick up on YouTube inline ads, though.

Oh no you don’t, Ric Fan — I love True Crime, and my audio backlog is already outrageous.

Our new music streaming service is here.

When I see something like this, I try to remember that “service” is what a stallion does to a mare.

(oooo! you have a website?)

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
