What's this video?

After seeing the George Washington video by Brad Neely, I was reminded of a similar video, but can't seem to find it. It was an alligator(ish) guy riding a jet-ski "across the plains," "smiling at the dames," and having some sort of weapon strapped to his hip. The style was so similar I was convinced it was the same guy but am either worthless at searching or wrong. Anyone know what this was?

How to find bona fide New York intellectuals in New York?

New York intellectuals: where do I find them? Where in the city would I go if I wanted to find intellectuals of the old-school variety, all ready to discuss literature and history, existentialism and poetry, theater and mythology and politics? I know they exist--some older specimens write letters to the New Yorker--but where do these special fauna array to be met and befriended?

What website contains speeches with all of the words removed?
