John Y’s Musings from the Middle: Why I Love YouTube

jyb_musingsWhy I love YouTube.

Not because it can capture funny home video clips, or humorous gags or sports highlight or memorable musical clips or an embarrassing public moment or a truly newsworthy current event.

Although I enjoy all of those things, too.

Rather, it is because from time to time, a rare gem of a video clip gets formatted to YouTube and shared with the world.

Like, for example, this 1963 interview with Peter O’Toole and Orson Wells discussing Hamlet that reveals the day-to-day personalities of both these extraordinary gentleman.

It’s not just educational; not just entertaining. It’s mesmerizing and magical in its own mundane way.

And that is why I love YouTube.
