LazyDork gets interviewed by CNN



かめ「このLazydorkもYouTubeで有名な人みたいですね。」
つる教授「分かりませんがそのようですね。」
かめ「未来の政治家はYouTubeで活動したりするのかも?」

(「続きを読む」を押すと動画が見れます。)


Can I ask you a question?

Yes men.

Have you ever heard about Lazydork?

Lazydork?

Lazydork. I am not making this up.

Lazydork is
The YouTube thing?

Yeah, yeah this is the YouTube guy.

Is it? Ok.

His name is actually Richard Stern.
He a former Dade County, Florida prosecutor.
He has become this YouTube.com sensation
millions of people visit his site.
And we got a little taste video, take a look.

Sure I may have quit on my life, according to society.
I may have start one of job interviews.
I may have moved that in my parents of the age 29.
Off for what?
I tell you for what.
So I can keep make entertainment videos,
so that you can have 2 minutes of happiness
every single day.

It is strange joys
It's nice to see you.
I can't tell you how much you're serious
how much you are kidding on that one?
Because you did quit your job and you have been
posting to wildly popular videos on YouTube.

Yeah.

Why did you start posting on YouTube?

Well the reason I started posting was when first
went on there was my girlfriend and I were
looking for the post, one of a movie reviews.(1:00)
That we did on the Lazydork.com and we found YouTube.
And I start brawsing
the really popular people, they were all 15 and 14 year
girls talking about what they had for lunch
and their orthodontists and they are getting
a half millions of views and we nearly said
we can not only do it better we can do
ten million times better.
So it's sort of a community service thing,
we want to give back to the YouTube community.

Community service/competition is what you talking about sounds
like to me, now how many viewers have you been getting?
Are you beating the 14 year old girls?

Am, I am not quite beating the 14 year old girls, you know,
it is difficult.
To get the little picture and who wants to look at this, right?
But we are actually getting close.
It's kinds like, I explain it like, if Aerosmith makes
a big song and Widows covers it, and if you like the Widows
song, it's never going to be as big as the Aerosmith.
But if you are Cult liker, you are gonna love it more.
And that I am weirdo.

Alright.
I think I am following your analogy there.
You had, ok let's call wild success,
how do you make money on this venture?
Do you make any money?(2:00)

No you don't, actually.
I am down about 500 backs on the whole venture.

Well that can't last for it can't work like that.
That's a bad business.

Look it up in volume.

That's a good point.

How do you pay the bills?

Well I, like you know, I was a prosecutor for 3 years
and I loved that job.
But I moved on and I quit that on.
I am going to the Las Vegas and gonna become
a professional poker player so that's gonna pay
the bills for now on.

Hah, Ok.
Let's talk about your days as a Dade County prosecutor.

What?

When you were working as a prosecutor, did anybody know that
you were posting in the YouTube or no?

Actually sort of nobody knew that I was posting.
Absolutely nobody at my job.
Because it woulnd't becoming I guess of a prosecutor,
somebody who holds such an important position in public
life to go ahead and start posting stupid,
silly videos on the internet.

Will you ever worry that like, you know, the judge or...

I was constantly....

Was gonna say that "Don't I know from somewhere?"

I was constantly afraid that a diffentive turney
or judge or worst of all, defended, will stand up be like
"That guy post videos on the internet!"(3:00)
Because believe me there is no better way to lose creditability to
in front of a jury that to be out by a defended there in chuckles.
Believe me.

Yeah that would be quite ruin your creditability wouldn't it?

There is no doubt about it.

After you quit your job then the Miami Herald did a piece
on you and know about your posting.
What was the reaction to that?
Were people just shocked or there is no one knew in your office?

Somebody for my office described it as a wild fire.
Say that just work stop then people just couldn't believe it.
Because they knew me as one person.
And you know, I was jobbies at work.
They saw me on this video and it just brews their minds.
So, I got a lot of calls, trust me, on my cell phone
did not stop ringing minute by minute.
For about 2 straight days.

Now, you gonna have a new gig because obviously you are losing money
on YouTube thing that's not, not a good long term plan.
So you think the this poker thing is gonna work?
What's this comes from?

Well, I have been playing pokers on my life.
Or I would say that my father took my brother golfing
and took me to horse drag, which is you know, this is where we bound
and it was fun.(4:00)
So I have been playing poker since I was 8 years old, and that
I am moving on to Las Vegas and try to hand some cards.
And hopefully it works, I am going to give my best shot and if not,
there is always a lot of full back on, right?

Yeah you still then keep posting in YouTube, right?

It's a hobby, you know 500 dollars down is not so bad,
it's not so expensive hobby and I am on CNN
so I am doing something, right?

Exactly, exactly.

I am talking to you so that is the best day on my life.

OH.

Oh man...
I know we are running out of time but let's not end
the interview yet.
It's just getting good for me.

It's good it's nice to see you.
Good luck on your whole.
Will you check back in with us and let us how it goes?
And I will check back in on you.

Listen, I will be on any time you guys want me.
Are you kidding me?
I am on yours.

It's a deal. Thanks.

Thank you.

He is funny.
He did a suncracks in he yeah.

いかがでしたか?

かめ
最近ちょっとついていってる気がします。
効果があったんでしょうか。

つる教授
効率はともかく、たくさん聴いて慣れることは
必ず上達につながると思いますよ。

かめ
そうすると今度は語彙が足らないと思いました。
辞書を引き引きだと時間がかかりますよ。

つる教授
それは英語の達人でも悩む問題ではないでしょうか。
動画の印象と単語を結びつけてどんどん語彙を増やしていきましょう。





Lazydorkは映画のレビューなどをしているようです。
滑舌が良いのでリスニングに適しているかもしれません。
