How to solve Rubik's Cube and the phenomenon of you-tube

"Hey, world! My name is Dan Brown and ... "

It was amazing - see the interview, to see what I'm talking about. See, I wanted, upon many years of deep thought and sarcasm (no, wait), of meditation (that's better) and contemplation, compilation (you're getting all reggae on me;) ... you get the gist.
SOooo, I went to the you-tube (dooooh) and typed in the most straight-forward question - How to solve the Rubik 's Cube? (Faster. Finger tricks.)

From then on, I saw another interview, on CNN, and it's also about political views of Dan Brown - apparently quite enthousiastic about politics right now .. who wouldn't be? See, it's his first. Yes, ladies and gents - the 17 year-old Dan Brown is another internet star, made so by the 30.000 views (at the end of the first day it was on the net! So go figure.) of his tutorial video I'm posting bellow on how to solve the Cube. So: part 1, part 2 and the reply to the questions (I figuered it out before that).
Also: how to scramble the cube:

Soo, fer all of you guys: the videos (If I can tackle them to be side by side, smallish)!

And trust me on this one, It's gets really easy, once you've done it one or twice.
First time it took me two weeks of getting nowhere, because I just knew how to do the bottom layer. Then I said - hey, I'll finally you-tube it, got the videos I'm posting and voilla! One night, 5 hours to get it done. The next morning, once before and once between breakfast, then once in the store, twice that evening and today twice already. Getting faster: 3-5 min or so.
