Variations on a Theme

For those of you who are not YouTube afficionados, but would like to partake of some of the activities, here's an example of a video romp.

It all begins with Noah, who, poor dear thing, took a picture of himself, looking quite dysthymic, I might add, everyday for six years, and posted the results on YouTube for all of us to enjoy. Undoubtedly a noble effort --perhaps for a narcissist -- but that doesn't look like Noah's primary problem.

Others were moved by Noah's pathos. His entry was quickly followed by the satiric "Ben Takes a Picture of Himself Every Day for Six Years" (which, it was later disclosed, is an effort by a "sketch group". Whatever that is).

Tubers (my word) began to respond in video, and, as you can see, it quickly got complicated.

One enterprising participant created a visual chart, making it easier follow the riffs, by clicking on photos.

In case you haven't had enough, here's the whole silly thing on Metafilter.

Notice that each video begins with a clap, and "hey guys".

Photo note: Metaphorophotographically , looking through an opening to find variations on an interesting but junky theme. Actually, a foggy day at the town dump among the hard recyclables. Note the gold refrigerator --your granite countertops will be in that pile twenty years from now, mark my words.
