YouTube - Arkansas Style

Posted By on Sat, Oct 7, 2006 at 8:48 AM

As someone with an especially short-term attention span, I have learned to love YouTube, a new Internet phenomenon. It has hardly been around a year and it is already receiving millions of hits a day. All YouTube consists of is user uploaded short videos, for the most part filmed by the users themselves. Of course there is some copyrighted material on there ( just don't tell the UA legal staff, they will be forced to send in the strike team) but a majority is very amateur, actually very bad, but also very personal and creative.
    YouTube has been adopted by people from all over the political spectrum and even the world. I read in the New York Times yesterday that the terrorists in Iraq actually film scene of U.S. Soldiers being attacked and even shot – and load them on YouTube to rally support and presumably brag about their sick exploits. YouTube doesn't allow extreme violence and takes them off as soon as possible.
    I did a search one day on YouTube for anything with “Arkansas” or “Little Rock” in its title and found a wide variety of material by our state residents. YouTube is free, and is a great forum to allow those of meager means a forum for their ideas. YouTube lets the nuts fall where they may, such as, Rod Bryan. The campaigns here in Arkansas seem to have been quick to upload most of their commercials as well. For all of you political masochists out there – here is a sampling of Arkansas  politics and more ala YouTube

  • I want my two dollars !!!

    In the movie, "Better Off Dead," with John Cusack, there is this sub-plot of the local newspaper delivery boy stalking Cusack to get his $2.  Some people will go to great lengths to get their $2 in real life as well.

  • Publishing to Perish ?

    In an interesting twist, the Arkansas Supreme Court today amended Ark. Sup. Ct. Rule 5-2 and will now allow all cases to be cited, doing away with the distinction between published and unpublished opinions.

  • Death Penalty Reform

    The death penalty makes me nervous. It makes me nervous because there is always a chance the wrong person is being executed.
