It's Tuesday and time to pick a clip from YouTube to ponder.
I recently decided to upgrade part of my entertainment system and I'm now a proud owner of a big flat HDtv. As a result of this purchase, and the fact that I don't actually have a subscription to HD cable, I find myself constantly clicking around looking for good (HD) content. Last week, as I was flipping through, I paused at IFC.
Not to be confused with that DC organization connected to the World Bank Group, the Independent Film Channel shows movies and tv shows "uncut." Yeah, uncut. I'm not sure how they get away with this, but I guess it's cuz it's cable. Every once in a while, there's a nice R rated nude scene, which is a bit of a treat these days for me, since I swore off internet porn on January 2. Now I'm like a 14 year old boy. I'm thinking about signing up for the Frederick's of Hollywood catalog, ya know, cuz Christmas is just around the corner.
What does this have to do with YouTubesday? Well, one of the new IFC shows that recently debuted is called "Z Rock." It's a pseudo reality show that features the real-life band "ZO2," and mixes in actors to help create zany adventures for this struggling rock-trio. The one episode I've seen so far was fairly amusing (and was uncut as advertised), and I paused long enough to watch the whole show.
As it turns out, ZO2, aka the Z brothers, are on some sort of tour and are coming to Jaxx in less than 2 weeks. DCRC has been looking for a good excuse to drive 40 mins to Springfield, VA and see what kinda venue Jaxx really is, so this was as good an excuse as any.
It's probably gonna suck.
