John, who did the Charlie Chaplin montage to the tune of a Moby song that I posted earlier, posted in the Buster Keaton forum about  another montage of Buster Keaton.  Brilliantly done!

This time he used the same montage to two different songs.  The first is done to the Pixies “Here Comes Your Man”

Or if you are more of a folk music fan, here’s the same montage with the Soggy Bottom Boys’ (from the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”) “Man Of Constant Sorrow”

Looks very good! And it didn’t mess up the text or layout. I’m very impressed.  Looks like the guys at WordPress fixed that problem!

If you use WordPress and haven’t updated yet to 2.6, I recommend doing it.  The YouTube embedding is just one of many reasons to update :).

This is my test to see how WordPress has improved embedding videos, especially YouTube videos. I was having one heck of a time (more like 2 or 3 heacks) with the older version and could not get it to work, even reading others fixes and trying different browsers.

The video below is one that one of the members posted to the Charlie Chaplin Forum. The montage is from a number of Chaplin’s films ranging from 1915 to 1940.  And the song is by Moby called Run On.  I think the video is awesome and well timed.

[EDIT 7/22/14 — I was checking out some of my earlier posts and saw the previous embed was no longer working. So I updated it :). Enjoy!]
