You're never too old to learn new tricks!!

Oldest son Brent was over last night - as an aside it was nice to spend a Friday night with him - weird but nice - and he was showing me some videos on YouTube and I learned something I did not know!!!

If you watch the video on YouTube itself and click the little square box on the bottom right hand corner - the one between the triangle box and the speaker box, the video plays on the whole screen!! When I saw him enlarge the first video, I got all excited and asked him how he made it do that, so he told me. So of course - me being me - after he left, checked it out on the second North and South video on the left side bar.

The famous "KISS" in the famous 'TRAIN SCENE" up close and in slow motion - verra, verra nice!!

And speaking of North and South - Jessica - I'm still waiting to add you to the Crusader list!! I know you've wa-atched it. And anyone else whose watched it and want to do a review - it's been a while since there has been new blood.

And - just in case I'm not the only one who did not know this and wants to see what I'm talking about - here's the video

That trailer was beautiful and the song was perfect. I have to admit I didn't know about "the button" either.

Yay! Fullscreen is amazing when watching hot eyecandy! *grins* Aww, Richard, you are just too perfect in that scene you handsome hunk. I so want to re-watch North & South now!

Patti said...

I love fullscreen for that reason.

*sigh* I really need to watch North and South...right after all the episodes of Buffy.

LOL I totally owe you a review, don't I. But gosh, it's been a little while ... I think this may call for rewatching the entire series! ;)

Armenia: Hello!! And Welcome!! Isn't it a great video? And *laughing* isn't it even better full screen? I got so excited when I saw what Brent was doing and right away asked how he did that!!!!

Pattepoulie: I've spent many a fine hour looking through all the North and South videos - and saaaayyy - did you know about the Crusade??? To become a Crusader and get a place of honour on the sidebar, all you have to do is do a post on North and South - and your thoughts on this wonderful tale.

And Anna!!! You too can become a Crusader. We NEED new Crusaders!!

Patti: THREE!!! Can we get THREE more to join??? I don't know if you've seen it - or if you were around when the Crusade began - but it was ever so much fun and as you can tell by the number of Crusaders, it's very well worth watching!!

Jessica: *laughing* I've been watching for your review ever since you mentioned it a while ago. And yes - I think a rewatch is definitely in order - to make sure you haven't forgotten something.

Orannia: I haven't been playing on it that much since Brent showed me - but all I can think of is all the music videos I can watch up close and personal - heh heh
