Google video is out and it’s nice (but a little strange). It’s fast, but some have charges and some don’t, some are downloadable and some aren’t. It’s just not very consistant.

Some are interesting (and complete) like this 5 minute intro to the Torino Olympics Figure Skating but then they have these goofy short ones that are 15 seconds like this Emily Hughes one that isn’t even a complete anything (at least in this one they didn’t cut off after 1/2 a sentence.


Okay, it’s a few minutes later and I’m back with a few interesting ones:

  • What is a Blog?
  • What is RSS?
  • Bells (MSU Beaumont Tower).
  • Dream Sequence (a dearborn high project)
  • Water Rocket
  • “Kate” (from Lost) in a singles line ad…
  • Unveiling of the new Sparty Statue

    Okay, I started off not thinking Google videos was a little strange. Now I know it’s just a way to kill a lot of time…

    I’m sure it’ll get better (and worse). The original list of web sites was just a list with a dozen or so added every few days. There just wasn’t much to find at the time. This’ll get better (especially once they add tags).

    Taralipinski-WikiSo whatever happened to Tara Lipinski? It’s not a name you hear much any more. I haven’t even seen her on television much (acting or skating). It’s skating season so she’s popped into my head a few times lately when I see it on TV. Plus I saw some Champions on Ice posters at Breslin last week (even though she was with Stars on Ice) which also made me think about her.

    I’ve seen her a few times, something (fundraiser?) just before she got big, a few times with Stars on Ice and some Tara & Friend’s show in East Lansing. She was very impressive each time.


    It just seemed as if she completely disappeared. It seems like Sarah Hughes dropped off the map too…

    Later: With a little Googling I see she’s going to be inducted into the hall of fame next month. I think that’s at a show in St. Louis which I think it’s where she hurt herself which lead to her not skating so much (anymore?); I have no idea if it’s the same arena. She’s got a story in International Figure Skating this month, I’m assuming that’s related to the induction(?).
