This request is a bit different from most. I have no doubt the word is used (having heard it used), but would like to use it as WOTD. For this, I think it ought to have a really good selection of citations, since it's of relatively recent coinage. I am also uncertain whether the two definitions are in fact distinct, since I've also heard this used in reference to on-line videos. So: (1) Could people help to add really good citations? (2) Is there one sense or two? --EncycloPetey 04:44, 8 April 2010 (UTC)

It does seem that well over 95% of the finds are about music. I put one new one into the entry. I also found one cite that I don't feel is a "quality" addition, which mentions "Benny Hill's weekly sexual-harassment-lawsuit-waiting-to-happen outro sequence." in a piece about 70's tv progs. Also I found one about magazines - "That's not to denigrate the many magazines that are put together this way - most of them are extremely intricate and incredibly hard-working - it's just that they sometimes feel like one long intro section. Or one long intro section that seamlessly bleeds into an outro section." This you can find here if you think it is useful. -- ALGRIF talk 14:17, 12 April 2010 (UTC)

Striking. Was never actually tagged, anyway. —RuakhTALK 14:09, 28 August 2010 (UTC)
