Cash, Downloaded.

How did I not know about this? Found a new website - stage6.divx.com - that has a whole bunch of highly encoded DivX vids available for viewing...and download! And they make it easy with an actual download button. The great thing is that the vids are higher quality, not the compressed into oblivion of YouTube. Sure, the selection isn't the broadest, but what they do have is pretty good.

I downloaded a bunch of music videos, and even got the whole Johnny Cash at San Quentin concert that was televised in 1969. I'd seen it before on MuchMusic, but now I have my own copy. It's a fascinating hour of viewing, with Johnny Cash and June performing with inter cut clips of the prisoners and staff of San Quentin talking to the camera. It's a chilling bit as they cut back and forth of clips of a prisoner and guard talking about the death row experience with Johnny Cash singing There'll Be Peace In The Valley. Worth the watch, even for non country fans.
