YouTube Lament.

I just watched a video on YouTube entitled Top Ten Historically Accurate Movies. One was Das Boot, the sets for which were described in the commentary as ‘excessively accurate.’ I’m curious to know how anything can be excessively accurate, since ‘excessively’ means ‘beyond what is warranted.’ The commentary went on to say that the movie was set ‘aboard a U-boat’ which should have been ‘on board a U-boat.’ Though the movies might be accurate, seems the commentary doesn’t quite match.

So then I searched for several Susan McKeown tracks and found five of them, but every selection came up with Video Not Available. Sometimes you just have to wonder about the people running the culture, but I suppose I got a post of sorts out of it.
