Silly Site o' the Day

I tend not to check in with my YouTube subscriptions all that often. It's like Twitter or Facebook or Flickr or MySpace or StumbleUpon or any other social networking site - I have a presence on all of them, but I either don't have the time to play around on them or (with the exception of LinkedIn) I'm prohibited from accessing them for the 40+ hours per week that I'm at work. And yes, YouTube is one of the places that sends me periodic emails that the places to which I've subscribed have new videos. But I assume everyone who frequents these hubs enough to have their own page updates it fairly regularly (the way I do daily posts to this blog) so I usually ignore those emails, preferring to rely on bloggers like Mark Evanier to remind me when I really should check out the Python page to see Eric Idle's responses to fatuous comments:

Sorry about the ads, but they're out of my control, like so much in social networking these days.
