    Thanks for putting these together for us, Jason – I must be the only person on the planet not to have seen the Gangnam Style video (I've still only seen a couple of minutes – it was as much as I could stand!) There's some other interesting stuff here I'd like to watch when I've time (time – what's that?!)

    The space jump would have to be top of my list – now that's REALLY awesome!


    PS apologies if you get this twice – I thought I'd posted a comment, but it disappeared – a bit confused by all the options below – trying again now!

      Thank you Sue. I am a big PSY fan… I love it. But the space jump was pretty awesome.

      Sorry if it is confusing… I just added Intense Debate yesterday and am having trouble syncing it up so I can customize it.
