i want my youtube!

well...it seems as though someone somewhere has done something on youtube to irritate someone somewhere in turkey. youtube access has once again been denied to those of us here in this country. this isn't the first time. i would say there have been at least three other times the plug has been pulled on youtube in turkey. it was annoying before, but this time i am taking it personally! i have several blogs that i read on a regular basis. these fine writers have all in recent days put a youtube video on their blog to help make their points. i hear that something funny is on the video. i read the comments that others make concerning the video and it's hilarity, but i can't see the video. evidently there was something really funny about mother's day, puff the magic dragon, and sea monkeys. there's a song by a group called flobots and a video on how to use facebook. all this in just the last three days. i am so missing out!

You'll be back in the world soon. Yay! You'll be able to drown in Youtubes and no Muzik Doritos.

Sounds like it's time to take to the streets and stir things up a bit.

That or just watch TV instead.

They can pull the plug for a whole country on all of YouTube?? Wow.

You stopped in while I was having trouble geting internet access, but I'm home and the jetlag is clearning, so I came over for a visit. I only got a little time in Turkey, but it is an interesting place. Differnt to be living there than just touristing though, I'm sure.

charlie girl - you are such a giver.

hahn - i know. i'll have to pace myself when i get there. i wouldn't want youtube or dorito overload. it wouldn't be pretty!

heyjoe - i know. i am pretty good at stirring things up!

citizen of the world - yeah...who knew. i've enjoyed the pictures of your trip immensely. really nice stuff. and i share your sentiments on coming home! feels great!

HeyJoe said...

I know you are Natalie.

hey natalie, send me an e-mail. the kids showed me how to get around it.

Natalie said...

heyjoe - tee hee

crystal - brian has a way around it as well, but it makes his computer run really slow! i think i will just suffer in relative silence. well...i did say relative.

Aw! I was gonna mail you a work-around, sounds as if you have it & it's less than ideal for you though. Just where do those gov't folks think they are anyway? The Middle East???:(

Natalie said...

mike - i guess i should look into the ways to get around the youtube ban. they may be different than the one brian has...maybe better!
