The Greatest Website Ever!

Over the course of my life and especially now with the recent rise of my globally recognised media empire (I have, for example, a blogger account and a Facebook account; I also have access to someone's MySpace account - or, at least, I did until I forgot the password) I am often accosted by eager-looking bright-eyed young people who want to somehow extract from me the secret of my success in the Internet world. Of course, it's my duty to straighten them out right away by reminding them that the secret of success lies within, and that they can't expect me to be able to find the answers for them. That being understood, I ask them if there's anything else I can help them with.

They all kind of look at their feet at this point and begin developing strange emotional complexes because they see that, of course, they should have known that answer full well without having to ask me. So I generally say something encouraging to them in a gentle voice, shift my weight onto my right foot and just wait for a spell. I know which question is going to come next.

A somewhat scrawny kid in the back will generally be the one to meekly stick his hand up into the air and summon the strength to voice the one (other) question that hangs over the meeting like a really big black and purple cloud.

"Mr. Foolish Knight," he'll say with rising excitement in his voice, "what, in your opinion, is the GREATEST WEBSITE EVER MADE?"

At this point, I'm the one who starts to feel embarrassed because, scanning through the list of all my favorite sites and not finding one that quite meets that criteria, I realise that, quite simply, I don't know what to tell them.

Or at least I didn't, until just recently.

Thankfully, this little website have changed all of that; I introduce to you:

The Official Website of the Dorks Of America!

Yes! It's true! Don't you feel all fuzzy inside just thinking of it? This is the place where all of the wonderful DOA videos are stored! Just think! Now you can watch them anytime you want! I directed a handful of them, so you know it's high quality stuff. With these videos also comes some side stuff that's not strictly DOA material. For example there's:

Sound Men Dance

Add to My Profile | More Videos

hilarious and family-friendly footage of odd and yet somehow likable people doing strange and wonderful things, and:

The Chairs

Add to My Profile | More Videos

Which is actually a Mere Image production and is kind of along the same lines as the last video (I mean, concerning the whole "people acting strangely" thing).

Some of the best Dorks Of America material includes:

Don't Lose your Head

Add to My Profile | More Videos

Beatbox

Add to My Profile | More Videos

And the Pirate Episodes (I directed episodes five through seven, so I have a little bias there as to which ones are best).

There's a world of fun out there, kiddos! Go grab it while you can! And be sure to let me know which ones are you favorites, okay? All right! Go have fun!

Man, that dance video was the BEST thing I've seen in a LONG time! And I hadn't seen the Chairs as a finished Product. Really good! Man, I need to come to Oragon sometime this year or next. Cause, as I'm sure you didn't know, I'm moving back the USA this fall, for community college. So I need to come visit you. Or you could come visit me... But I'd rather come to Oragon.
Oh! and you need to ad me on facebook. I'm the only JD Meyerdirk.
Take care man! And keep doing whatever it is you're doing!
Oh, and one more thing. You should check out my new blog.

I can't get it to play? Is it because I don't have a Mac. Are you prejudiced against me because I am the boring PC girl? Those commercials truly fit, I do a mean spreadsheet and graph. Then again it is my job... :-)

:D
I do love to see my pretty face in a video!

But in total agreement with JD, that dance video was hilarious! I had no idea you Emcee so well.

I really liked seeing the chair, in retrospect. We ought to do a Mere Image reunion and put some new stuff together. Nice touch with the song. It fits perfectly!

oOo yay! It's a good one indeed.
I really like the finished version of The Chair (though I must say I do miss all the shouting in the background) Hah.
The Sound Men dance was truly and utterly amazing! Hahaha. You make me laugh Mr. Foolish knight. I love how genuine you are in it
= D. Well I must be off...but I wanted to tell you that reading through your posts is really great. They're very satisfying to the mind.
