End of Term Youtube Extravaganaza

End of Term Youtube Extravaganaza

Here we are coming to the end of another term at the Davenport campus, so it is time to once again have our tri-annual youtube extravaganza. This will be my last entry before the next term, so you will have plenty of time to enjoy these clips.

Red Green: I always loved the Red Green show from Canada. Red is set at a hunting lodge in the Canadian north, and he is always coming up with novel ways to do mundane jobs, as is the case here:

Isaac’s Live Lip-Dub Proposal: This is a recent viral video. You only wish you o\could have had as cool a marriage proposal!

My Cat from Hell: Okay, this is a guilty pleasure. This show is on Animal Planet, and it involves musician Jackson Galaxy, weird as he is, who helps people out with their “cats from hell.”

Big Bang Theory and Sheldon: Funniest program on television, hands down. Jim parsons is comedic genius.

Statistics, Probability and Diagnostic Medicine:  And now we get serious! Why note spend half an hour learning about probability in medicine?

Evolution of Dance: One man, and an entire history of the past half century of American dance styles.

Game of Thrones: If you have not seen this, it’s on cable, it is complex, and Peter Dinklage, small in stature, is huge in acting ability.

The Station Agent: In fact, he is so good here is one of his best movies- a small treasure.

Hua Shan Plank Walk: I’m not doing this! Nope.

House, the end: House is the man you love to hate. Compelling television, and a boon to those of us interested in medical ethics, since he violated it every episode. I will miss Hugh Laurie and Robert Sean Leonard.

RAGBRAI: This is as real as it gets- here is the entire ride in half an hour, from the banana bicycle to the singing nuns, pie and water slides. Only 5 weeks away now!
