Site Highlight: is a year-old video hosting website that enables people to upload and share video over the web. The site contains amateur video as well as video obviously uploaded from commercial sources. My main interest in the site is that it contains a treasure trove of vintage music videos and performance clips from TV shows of the '60s such as "Shindig", "Hullabaloo", "The Ed Sullivan Show" and more. Not to be missed: The Rolling Stones campy send-up of "I Got You Babe", and a video mashup "Paperback Believer" featuring The Beatles and The Monkees together in 1966. Also, check out a 1976 Saturday Night Live performance of George Harrison and Paul Simon on acoustic guitars duetting on "Here Comes The Sun" and "Homeward Bound", and you will understand why I will forever be playing guitar in the "back part of the basement"!

Go the YouTube main page and enter your favorite band, song, TV show, or whatever in the search box. (NOTE: The site is "clean", but be forwarned: your search may return some results that you may find objectionable or inappropriate. Viewer discretion is advised.)
