The exception, not the rule

I fade in and out of appreciation of Facebook. For the most part these days, I simply don't have time to check out what's happening with friends and acquaintances on a regular basis. In fact, a week can go by without my checking online to see what new ridiculous Fun Wall videos have been forwarded my way. Without any exaggeration at all, 90% of the Fun Wall videos I get are in very poor taste or simply wastes of time.

But this week, the percentage of garbage was slightly lower. This week, there were two videos that I really appreciated receiving. They were the exception to the rule.

Funny...really, really funny - Food Court Musical:

Inspiring...truly inspiring - Amazing 13 year old-Britain's Got Talent HQ:

Finally, because this is my blog and I can do what I like - here, at least - I'm recommending that if you like short videos and don't want to depend on Facebook Fun Wall forwards from friends and acquaintances, consider viewing 9 short films from the Cannes Festival for 2008 co-sponsored by Canada's NFB and YouTube. Here is one of the short films. You can vote and help determine this year's winner - Papiroflexia.
