Cousin T's YouTube Tour

Edna: We'd like to start a new series here at the Basement, highlighting some of the more interesting clips to be found over at that wonderful YouTube website. Our favorite Cousin T has volunteered to sort through the millions of clips and find and discuss his favorites. Some of our regular readers know Cousin T by his Jericho name, Terocious, but we know him as that nice young man who comes and fixes our basement door from time to time.

Margie: Edna, as much as I adore Cousin T, he sure does seem attached to those trains of his. Wouldn't you like to go take a nice train ride? I knew this conductor once...

Edna: Hush up Margie, and let the poor boy introduce his clip.

Cousin T: I like this one a lot. First off 'cause it's a train video and I love train videos and second off 'cause that bit in the beginning tricks you into thinking you are going to be doin' a lot of readin' but then the readin' stops and there you are in the middle of the desert watching this amazin' long train. I like the way the shadows from the train are just as dark as they want to be and it is all synched up to this Peter Gabriel music which I think comes from "The Passion of the Christ".

Thank you, Cousin T, for that wonderful video. We love a video that makes us believe we're going to be doing one thing then we're in the desert.

You send us another one soon.

that's some cool choo-choo, there, Cousin T!

Seriously, I lived in Phoenix for 2 1/2 years and it is something to see, a train haulin' thru the desert in the high summer. It totally bites, though, if you're waiting for it to finish crossing before you can drive on your way and then your car overheats. :-)
