"The Gnome Is Off His Locker"

Chris Pirillo may be the funniest nerd on the Internet/in the Mass Media* today.

In maybe his most interesting video-captured exercise since the incident with the priceless irreplaceable 100-year-old cylinder record, he has created three separate videos of himself, customized for each of the three most significent video sites, YouTube, Google Video and Revver that, in order to be enjoyed to their fullest, must be watched all at the same time. Now, I still have not figured out how to get my WordPress installation to accept embedded video thingies. (I apparently installed a plugin for a WYSIWYG editor that kills the code of embedded video and which I can not successfully uninstall. I am not going to be too alarmed by this until my editor starts writing its own blog.)

So, go to Chris’ blog where he has the stack of videos set up, and get them all running at once. Three things will become immediately apparent: First, he can’t do three-part harmony worth bat guano. Second, this is what living with someone with Multiple Personality Disorder is like. (Don’t ask me how I know. I just do.) And third, Chris is a total whore who will endorse almost anything or anyone who asks him and absolutely anything or anyone who pays him. Not that there’s anything wrong with that. It’s actually refreshing to deal with somebody who handles it so honestly.
* By this I mean someone who is both on the Internet and in the Mass Media. There are some people funnier in both areas, but nobody I know working in both areas… and who is a nerd. I hope I have explained this clearly.
