A YouTube binge is not known as being a haven for creativity. One minute you fire up YouTube for some useful consumer advice. The next, you’re sucked through the ‘Tom Scott vortex’ into the weird part of YouTube. Suddenly you’re listening to a Japanese woman, discussing fountain pen technology as it relates to computer recognition of Kanji characters in Japanese. Then it’s 3am.
But remarkably, one such binge did manage to spark a bit of creativity on my end. During one of my late night internet browsing sessions, I stumbled across bare naked ladies.
That’s probably phrased wrongly. Sorry. THE Barenaked Ladies. The band.
