The videos are okay, but being hit with all the adsense before I can see the content isn't. Really, I find that adsense in IM related sites is mostly wasted space. too many marketers know what adsense is and they avoid it like the plague. you will get a few clicks but not that many. Also, having it all slamming you first thing on the site will drive people away. People shouldn't have to scroll down to find where your content starts.
I would also recommend using your own videos rather than someone else's. I love lisa's blog, but having her videos builds her reputation not yours.
I would recommend 1 block of adsense near the top of the page and one lower down, so either move the content block or the one in your sidebar.
I would also redo your sidebar. the sidebar should not be twice as long as your content, which yours is on most pages. I would limit the number of posts/pages, and have less stuff going on there. Most people will ignore your sidebar anyway, so filling it up and adding more space to your posts isn't really helping you that much.
