Frustration, or Google Owns Everything

I am not as slick as I thought I was. My superstar status is downgraded to D level. I've come up against my first techno-wall, as I have been trying in vain to get a video from Youtube viewed here in my blog. Woe alas. I thought it'd be a piece of cake since blogger and Youtube are both owned by Google and should be all simpatico but I'm having trouble all the same. *sigh* It's still October... I know there's probably some really easy way to do it and when I finally figure it out I'll be smacking myself in the forehead, but in the meantime, grr.
Youtube is sort of a quintessential time-waster. I can view commercials from the '70s, teasers from bands and TV shows, all of which are entertaining, but for about a week I had an RSS feed on the top 100 or whatever Youtube videos, and they were all either foreign sporting events or porn (occasionally foreign porn). So I unsubscribed to that...
I guess I will take a break from trying to hook up some video clips here and try again in a week or two, on a day when I haven't spent six hours in meetings.

foreign porn-- awesome!!

(okay everyone. that was a JOKE!)

ahh. youtube. if youtube was around when i was in college, i would have gotten nothing done. not a single thing.

here's a hint with embedding a video: you might need to switch over to the html or code view....

and you are still a superstar.
