Downton Abbey is So Addictive (kinda Like Gangnam Style)Posted on the 30 September 2012 by Ravenswingthog
Now, two episodes in, I can't wait for my next fix of period drama / soap goodness tonight! Very strange.
I watched the Guild Season six launch show last night, featuring Felicia Day, Kim Evey and the director of season six, Christopher Preksta. The show was very good (although they had one or two technical issues, primarily with showing the community synopsis videos - they still got around them though) and really psyched me up for Tuesday and the release of the first episode of Season Six, I can't wait! Despite the fact that my video didn't get featured (not surprisingly!) I really enjoyed it and the "winner" (not a winner because they're not allowed to have competitions in the US?) produced this fantastic 8-bit synopsis video.
In other news, Gangnam Style by Psy looks as though it's going to be the new Number 1 on the UK charts today. Views of this hit music video by the South Korean rapper have shot through the roof - when I first saw it, there was 51 million views (a decent amount by anyones estimation). It is now standing at over 325 million views, which is more than the entire population of the USA, and with something like 38 million of those views being in the last 4 days it is extremely popular right now. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, go here.
And when you've seen that, go watch the many parody videos out there.
Like this one - the Oregon Duck and his friends put in way too much effort making an excellent and extremely funny video. Well done guys!
Or the baby one if you're a parent :) Their channel is actually pretty cool so it's worth checking out too.
