Look out for Parkour

I’ve recently been introduced to the powers of YouTube. Having this awesome video resource at my fingertips has really excited me. All the good music videos you can think of are there. The Big Brother 7 (UK) audition tapes are there.

I will certainly buy of of these when they’re available. Furthermore, I reckon they’ll be almost as common as toasters within 10 years.
