So the Miami Herald finally got a YouTube channel. They've had a talented team putting out high-quality, award-winning videos for a while now (big up Chuck Fadely) but somebody oughtta tell corporate that with sites like keepvid.com all their content can now be downloaded with the click of a button. Somebody should tell them to watermark their movies so that at least when they get stolen people will know where they came from.
Anyway, here's a cool video by Battle Vaughan and Gabriela Gonzales, featuring the Spam Allstars' trombonist talking about and playing the conch trumpet.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
