Friday Frivolity – Star Wars parody

So I’m revealing a little of my inner geek today, but I couldn’t help it. Occasionally, you can stumble upon something on YouTube that strikes the funny bone in a way that surprises even you.

I’m a child of the 70s and 80s, so Star Wars is a big part of my life, and, well, my name is Luke. Do you know how many people I meet actually say to my face (heavy breathing) “Luke, I’m not your father” and then laugh like ninnies? 60% of them, I swear.

Anyway, here’s a little Star Wars clip from [adult swim], work-safe, but definitely geek revealing. Hilarious, though. Enjoy.

Update: I love it when a Friday Frivolity actually produces useful news. Speaking of YouTube, Podzinger just announced that it now searches audio of YouTube videos. From the Podzinger blog:

“YouTube has garnered a huge amount of press and interest over the past year. Its reputation as a grass roots online forum for sharing is cemented by it being the driving force behind Time Magazine’s choice to name the online generated content user/owner as their Person of The Year. Now with this new PodZinger feature, you can access and search YouTube material allowing for more specific search of their user generated content. Now besides simply searching on the metadata of the video files, you can search for terms that are actually mentioned inside the audio, allowing for a greater likelihood you will find relevant material. We’re also automatically organizing the videos into channels based on the actual content of the video. Today you can narrow your search within entertainment, sports, and anime. And we’ll continue to add more.”

This is huge. If you’re not aware of Podzinger, you need to be as it’s a revolutionary product that allows you to search audio and video. I’ve used it quite a bit, and it’s not perfect, but it’s getting better and it’s a fantastic start to searchable audio.  Thanks to FIR for pointing me to this news.
