Seen on Youtube

Post by Tripps »

Let's try a new topic. I use Youtube more and more lately - as TV becomes less attractive, and frankly, at times boring. I suspect I'm not the only one.

Give it a try.

I like this from Delph in Saddleworth. Filmed this year. Can you spot the elephant in the procession - and in the crowd?

Fast forward to 4.35 minutes for the Australian band and Waltzing Matilda. The whole affair is wonderful. :smile:

Excellent David, I have created a new forum in the entertainment section and moved your new topic into here.

I agree about Youtube of course. As for the elephant in the room in the band video I didn't watch all of it but what struck me was that 'Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner' was a poor choice for Diggle and that bloody steward who kept standing in front of the camera.....

I do wish they'd put the band name on the bass drum in large letters. I think 'Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner' was played by the Crystal Palace band, who I think are entitled to do so. :smile: I liked the Norwegian band, who also sang vigorously, but I was a bit disapponted that the Aussies didn't have corks on strings on their wide brimmed hats.

World class event I'd say. :smile:

Not the biggest fan of that gang - but worth watching in small doses. :smile:

Now - I've been watching 'Bald and Bankrupt' on Youtube for a while now, but noticed he wasn't on my follow list. That's a puzzle - I don't think I deleted him. Anyway he's back on now and I find he's teamed up for some content with this chap.
He's worth a watch on his own I'd say. No wonder the Ghurkas are so keen to get in the British Army.

Very similar but in Vietnam. I watch this lad Robert regularly, he's a worker and understands his world perfectly.

Good stuff - helps to keep a broader outlook and sense of proportion. Shame it's not in English. It amuses me that they live like that and still have a smartphone.

This is Bui thi Toan - I lent her a chunk of cash a long time ago. I think it was to start a pig manure digester or for an inside toilet or something_- I forget. She failed to repay it. I couldn't care less. :smile: I hope some good came of the investment.

PS - Just checked up - I've made another thirty loans and they have all been repaid - and then re - lent (plus a donation) in full. Take a look - Lend With Care

PS - that got me in the mood so now its' thirty one - the latest is a lady called Marilu in Cebu, Philippines who has a stall selling cold drinks and lots more, outside a church. Their software is very good. No - I'm not on commission. :smile:

That's very impressive David and food for thought.......

Does YouTube have a sense of humor or is the positioning of two different videos purely incidental.

The programmers are human Ken so it wouldn't be a surprise if they were having a bit of gentle fun at Gove's expense.

I came across this Labour MP today- ripping into Post Offices bosses at a recent Select Committee session. I must say that I've never heard of hm, which is a surprise, but I'd vote for him in an instant. He seems quite different from any MP that I've heard recently. Hard to imagine him dodging a question. Perhaps that's why he's been hidden away?


PS - Second (ish ) thoughts - He's a vegan, and his wife has an energy business which seems to depend on Net Zero. Strange - since he looks quite normal. Must all count against him though. :smile:

This is a bit sneaky, normally it should be in the Politics section but since a bigger percentage than I would like have declared their hand to say they don't read it so I've tried a backdoor entry to sneak one in.
Only 6 mins long and bereft of the number of expletives that this chap uses.

True, amusing but annoying.

Thanks to whoever sorted out my blunder. If I was into the latest American jargon, I'd say "my bad". But I'm not so I won't. :smile:

Orang Utan - (person of the forest) - that reminds me of my list of about twenty Malay words that I know. I was an Orang Puteh (white man). In contrast to Hindi - not many made it into English. Perhaps only 'amok' - as in to run amok'. :smile:

I must put this chap back. He makes me smile.

Here's a bit of powerful singing - and seasonal too. The last minute is about seven on the Richter scale. :smile:

One of my favourites also. Never heard it in Swedish. Here is an Italian bloke who can hold a tune as well with a rendition in English and his native tongue. :extrawink:

I watched an interview with her on TV last night. I think 'advanced for her years' could be an understatement in her case....
