What I'm Watching Now


Rachel Dratch, comedienne
"I like that Liam Sullivan clip called Shoes. Shoes! Whenever the word comes up in conversation I feel compelled to say it like he does. Shoes ... Shoes ... Shoes ... Let’s get some shoes!"

John Cameron Mitchell, filmmaker
"I’m an old faggot, so I’m watching Patti LaBelle, David Bowie, all the seventies variety shows. The most embarrassing thing on YouTube is a video of me singing a Phish song in my brother’s wedding. I don’t mind. If you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to worry about."

Cory Arcangel, artist
"Basshunter’s music video for 'Boten Anna' was a hit a few summers ago in Sweden. A No. 1 pop song about a computer program is, of course, amazing, and something that can only happen in Scandinavia."

Plus: What Russell Simmons, Amy Sedaris, Rashida Jones (and other, less-famous creative types) are watching on YouTube.
