I still cannot finish the book “The World is Flat” even though I have read a couple of dozens pages more, however there is one point in the book is right – Internet Search Engine is one of the “world flatteners”. Essentially, the search engines like Google, Yahoo empower every Internet user in the world to access all the knowledge indexed in the Internet. I think it is very true, and this power has also made me a “search-a-holic”.
Other than searching for information that are useful at work, I also use the search engines extensively even I am watching TV, or movie at home. For example, I will go to imdb.com to check the ratings, information of the actors and actress … to decide whether I shall continue watching that movie or TV show. Once I found a movie is good, I will go to Amazon.com to see whether the DVD and the soundtrack is available. And of course, the youtube.com is my favorite site for the music and music video in the movie.
So, here are three music videos I found from three movies …
Amazing Grace – if you don’t know the history of that 235 years old hymn / song, better go to cinema for that. And for me, the best version of Amazing Grace is always the bagpipe one.
Scent of a Woman – I think no one can forget this tango scene and with the 70 years old classic – Por Una Cabeza
The story of us– I just watched this movie in cable and of course, how can one forget the Classical Gas by Mason Williams ?
