Red State Update is always good for a laugh. Today they tackle the Oprah controversy with Sarah Palin. Best joke in the video comes in the last segment.
Bristol Palin’s African-american baby daddy speaks out (and promotes his music). This has been making the rounds for a couple of weeks and I’m surprised it hasnt died yet but people are still forwarding it around.
If you need evidence of the death of “Hip-hop” I offer the following two videos. First up is MC Frontalot with a video called “It is pitch dark”. MC Frontalot combines the lyrical skills of a Lupe Fiasco with the social inclinations of Maurice Moss . This is geek rap at its musical best.
On the other side is “Its cold in the D” a scary but heartfelt ode to urban and musical blight.

I really like this video, its kinda old but still very clever. Everytime the stats come on the screen I’m reminded of where the music industry needs to be.
Isnt music a huge part of Internet downloads? Dont music related sites proliferate and spread in much the same way as porn sites? So, where is the music industries Adult Friend Finder? Why is there no Jane’s Guide for music? Someone needs to tell Doug Morris to stop watching online porn and start studying it, it holds many of the answers that could help him save his business.

In a release put this morning Apple acknowledged the much rumored link between AppleTV and YouTube. The release stressed that while AppleTV + YouTube was cool iPhone + YouTube is killer. As the Apple’s marketing machine gears up for next weeks launch of the iPhone I wonder what other announcements are in store. From the 8 hour battery life to YouTube connectivity, Apple seems to have a series of high wow factor announcements up its sleeves.

A couple of weeks ago Viacom decided to sue GooTube for copyright infringement. What would they gain by getting all their content removed form the largest online video site? Nothing. Except the illusion of control and an RIAA like pyrrhic victory over Google, the Internet’s most successful media company.
In the meantime whats not available on YouTube is easily found on any of the 50 other online video sharing sites. Even the biggest online social network, Myspace serves up full episodes of Viacom content. Are they next on Viacom’s court appearance invite list? You can go to Myspace right now and watch full episodes of the Daily Show, Colbert report and one of my favorite, South Park.
Today the good folks at TechCrunch mentioned AllSP.com but didnt note that the videos on AllSP.com are largely hosted on Myspace. The embedded episode is from DailyMotion but you can see the same thing in its entirety via myspace at the link below. This episode is particularly hysterical in its subversive use of almost every hot internet property as part of the story.
