The folks* over at Idolator share our misgivings about the domestication of YouTube. In fact, they’ve gone a step further, crafting a clip-show obit for the Google-bought video site. Diddy’s “I’ll Be Missing You” always brings tears to my eyes (it’s really hard to listen to him “rap”), but I didn’t totally lose it until the fighting kittens popped up. Oh, YouTube. We barely knew yeTube. Now what am I suppsoed to do with this Greatest American Hero boxed-set — just watch it by myself? Cripes, I had a whole Connie Selleca music video storyboarded to “You’re Beautiful.”

Go there quickly. Before the Bad Boy lawyers do.

A premature elegy? Maybe. On-the-money entertaining? You betcha.

*For they are “folks,” in the folksiest sense. They wear gingham and churn their own butter. They make a body wants to grow his own tomaters.
