The Internet Overdose Song

Ha!  I just got a Twitter tweet from Link Lamont of the “popular internet comedy duo, Rhett and Link.” It says, “New song and video (with free mp3),” and there was a tantalizing tinyurl that led me immediately to YouTube where I was among the first 400 people to view this:

I have come to adore Rhett and Link since their “BBQ Song,” first showed up in my email and became the subject of my third blog entry…before I realized it was a couple of guys in character.  Last Thursday, I even tuned in to their weekly live video and chat event and stuck around while they worked through some techincal difficulties.  My first visit, and they mentioned my name (well, my username)!  I found out about the weekly event because I had recently noticed one of my Twitter friends was following them, so I followed them, too and they followed back!   That same evening, I got the tweet from Rhett that the chat was on and I clicked through to it.  I already had tabs open in my Firefox browser for my gmail, this blog, Theologyweb.com, and my Netflix queue, and I was building two small websites and browsing through Firefox add-ons.  But, I stopped to have this completely new internet experience with the fellas.

Just now, when I got Link’s tweet about the new video, I was actually in the process of going through all of the other blogs I link to here and adding them to my Google Reader so I can actually keep track of when something is new without clicking through to them every day.  I’m behind the times, I know.  But, I’m no spring chicken and I am trying not to neglect actual life while I try to keep on top of virtual life developments!  So, I had more reason to laugh at this video than I would have, say, three months ago, when I didn’t have a blog and I didn’t have a single RSS subscription and I wasn’t actually following the guys who made this video on Twitter and Facebook.  Mostly, I blogged this because I think Rhett and Link are extremely cool and represent a new breed of entertainer. I wanted to give them props, help boost visibility, and send new people to their playground on the interwebz.  Go play!  They’re waiting!

Luke 6:43 “For a good tree does not bear bad fruit, nor does a bad tree bear good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble bush. 45 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil man out of the evil treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks.
