Found on YouTube: Minneapolis to Boulder at 8,000 mph

I’ve been known to post time lapse videos of people driving around town from time to time.

This is another one – this one chronicling some dude’s move from Minneapolis to Boulder.


I like the snow casually getting thicker and thicker and then completely covering the road.

Found YouTube Video: Scrapple Sandwich Cookoff

This video has the caption:
Dropping knowledge on Zay $$$ and all my homies in White Bear Lake, St Paul, Turtle Lake, Birch, Goose, all the lakes, and of course, Brooklyn Park. Much love, respect.

If you didn’t know, Scrapple is typically made of hog offal, such as the head, heart, liver, and other scraps, which are boiled with any bones attached (often the entire head), to make a broth. Once cooked, bones and fat are discarded, the meat is reserved, and (dry) cornmeal is boiled in the broth to make a mush. The meat, finely minced, is returned, and seasonings, typically sage, thyme, savory, and others are added. The mush is cast into loaves and allowed to cool thoroughly until gelled. The proportions and seasoning are very much a matter of the region and the cook’s taste.

And now you’ve learned something today. In fact, we’ve all learned something.

MinnesotaMinute Online Video Contest Showcases Minnesotans’ Commitment to the Environment

My Minnesota Minute is a short video contest sponsored by the Bell Museum. Make a short video that shows how you or someone you know is helping to improve or maintain Minnesota’s natural environment. Upload your video to YouTube and tag it with the words My Minnesota Minute. Selected videos will be featured on the Minnesota Minute Blog, where you can learn and discuss how ordinary Minnesotans are taking a Minnesota minute today to protect the natural world for tomorrow.

Also sponsored by the Blandin Foundation and e-democracy is also somehow involved. Top prize is a Sony Palmcorder (proprietary formats and all).

Entries thus far are up on the Bell Museum’s Minnesota Minute website. Submission guidelines are pretty straightforward. Contest runs through the State Fair; September 1 is the deadline for entries.

YouTube highlights The Uptake on inaugural Citizen News feature

Back in February, CNN launched iReport, a Web site built entirely on user-produced news similar to FoxNews’ uReport. Unlike CNN’s own properties—where only iReport submissions that have been handpicked by editors and checked for accuracy ever make it online or on air—the new site was wide open, allowing users to post whatever content they choose. Ah, citizen journalism at its best…or was it?

Now YouTube is getting in on the action with YouTube Citizen News. They’ve hired a News Manager and will be highlighting some of the best news content on YouTube every day sourced from public tips and breaking news around the world.

The inaugural intro video features a mention of The Uptake and this sweet shot of Chuck Olsen driving in his car. Watch the intro video here.

69! It’s an omen!

He did say “sacks”… right?
