Gone Straight to Plaid!

Sorry to quote Spaceballs for the title, but I just like that line and I couldn’t really think of any other way to sum up my feelings on Google Video. That and I watched that movie I don’t know how many times when I was younger and it’s pretty much stuck for good in the ole noggin’.
I bring up the Google Video, because if it we were to tag a sound on to websites to describe them, Google Video would be the sound of “suck” somewhere around black hole proportions. I’m guessing that because it’s been a bit of a flop they’ve written it off for the time being. Yes, it’s true that there have been some updates which have made it better or actually made it worse depending on your viewpoint, but my concern is the content. I went through there the other night and it seems like all you can find are video upon video of young girls singing to their favorite songs in front of webcams. I don’t know about you, but this is so lame, it makes my fingernails hurt. I specifically don’t watch MTV as the last time I checked, it was full of crap like this.
It seems like there really is no quality control. I’m sure that Google will say that everything is organic and automated, but there is I gotta say that there is some root rot in the organism from which this site grows. I haven’t a clue what they’re going to do with it and as it sits right now, it seems like a waste of space on the internet. There are far more amusing and higher quality videos at Heavy if you really need to spend or waste some time.
