Monty Python finally does something with this YouTube stuff - VIDEOS

Monty PythonHey, want to know something super-sad? For most of seventh grade, I came home every day from school and, before doing anything else, watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail from beginning to end. I also spent a great deal of middle school reading everything I could about the troupe, filling my brain with pointless trivia about Sam Peckinpah's "Salad Days" and Spam.

This not only caused me to develop a type of hardcore social awkwardness that was extremely rare outside of the 70s and 80s, but forever instilled in me a deep love for Monty Python. Since the boys are very busy with their individual projects these days, it's a thrill to see any new Python stuff to come around, even when it's in the form of an extra-short YouTube clip and they're never actually shown to be in the same room together.

That's right, the group has finally jumped on the YouTube bandwagon and started uploading high quality videos of various sketches and movie clips to their own Monty Python channel. There are only 24 videos right now, but the channel is barely five days old and there's plenty of room to grow. Since the pathetic nature of my wallet and apartment size combined does not allow much room for a massive, cohesive Python DVD collection, this channel will have to do for now.

Here, I've embedded their big YouTube announcement and a classic sketch from Flying Circus, "Argument Clinic."
