WHY GOD CREATED YOUTUBE™: The Husserlian Transcendental Phenomonology Of P. Diddy

P. Diddy's got his-self a new "BadBoy Records channel" over at YouTube wherein he posts extremely short clips of himself speaking to a camera (and, in doing so, his peeps) in order to promote his new album (which, as he tells you in nearly every single video, drops in October). And while all those other blogs are pointing you to the video of him just waking up and describing the crusties in his mouth, or the video where he talks about (and demonstrates) the profound sense of release that urination can bring, I prefer to spotlight the above clip of a quieter, more philosophical Diddy checking in with his MySpace family (because if you're on Diddy's MySpace page, "you're MySpace family, not friends") and ponders the meaning of life via revealing he "ain't feeling too good". It's the kind of up-close and personal access one can only get from watching less than a minute of video shot by an assistant who'd probably rather be scoring his boss a venti soy latte or an ounce of blow instead of having to videotape his dementia-powered ramblings 24/7.

And that's why God created YouTube.
