embracing the new world

I was listening to NPR this afternoon and heard an article about a group of Austrian monks. To sum up:

"After a contact in London informed the Cistercian monks of Holy Cross monastery about Universal’s search for Gregorian singers, the 80 monks compiled a clip of their singing and put it on YouTube as an audition."

Here's a write-up about them, include the YouTube audition video.

It just tickles me, imagining monks surfing the web and uploading videos to YouTube.

In the usual makes-me-wince, derivative-Christian-culture fashion (see Settlers of Canaan, a sad take-off on the popular Settlers of Catan board game) there is a website called godtube.com, which is a YouTube clone. Anyway, there's one video worth watching, which predated the website (I believe): Baby Got Book, a Christian spoof/parody of Sir Mix-A-Lot's "Baby Got Back". "Thompson Chain with Big Red Letters!" :)


...and for something completely different: the World Wife-Carrying Championships.
