Searching YouTube from Android is like chugging an Ipecac Colada.

I currently wield an Evo, which is widely considered a great Android smartphone.

I'd LIKE to listen to "Fuck You" by Cee Lo Green??on my Evo so I pull up YouTube (which is owned by Google) on my Android (which is owned by Google) and do a Search (which is owned by Google).

And YouTube Android Search completely and utterly fails to find the song or video. Instead it gives me a lot of spam and a lot of junk that is not what I'm searching for.

So I'm going to have to embed the video below if I ever want to find it to play it on my mobile device in the future. This isn't??bad luck; this is FAIL.

Once more, with feeling: if searching Twitter is like drinking an ipecac martini, then searching YouTube from a mobile device is worse:

Searching YouTube from Android is like chugging an Ipecac Colada.

So without further ado, here's "Fuck You"…

And did I mention he released a second version?

And perhaps someday I'd like to play the 50 Cent freestyle

In any case, one thing is clear:

It's much easier to search my Posterous than YouTube or Twitter. Especially on a mobile device.

So in the future if I know I will want to find something on my iPad or other mobile device, I'm Posterous-ing it. Even if the content itself says, "Fuck You"…

And although there's pain in my chest, I still wish you the best, as I type in this Posterous from Gmail (which is owned by Google) from Chrome (which is owned by Google). Maybe I should let go and distract myself with a Game??and a deep, cleansing??breath??to move my mind to a kinder, gentler place where everybody is "Kung Fu Fighting"

Yes, that feels better. I'm connected to the now.

I close with a reading from The Book of Yishan, who says, "?????????: ???????????????!??It's like this y'all:"

This is ten percent luck, twenty percent skill
Fifteen percent concentrated power of will.

Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain

And a hundred percent reason to remember the name.

Well said, sir. Well said. I ❤ my excellent attitude. Peace.


  1. Adam, you mercilessly crack my shit up. I love all the interwoven ‘meta’ in all your posts. Reminds me of the tangential discourse that often rages in my head…Anyway, @daved and I are headed to TechCrunch Disrupt in a few weeks – any chance you’re heading up there too?
