I just saw a little news article about Bhushan Kumar being facilitated for having the most popular channel on youtube. Which I thought must mean “youtube in India”. But, nope! In the entire global youtube market, T-Series has the most viewers. By several million. And it has the second most subscribers, on track to become the most subscribed within months. How did we get here? How did an Indian music and movie company become the most popular video streaming channel in the world?
Just throwing this up here so I have something ready to go while I am working on other longer posts. You can watch it if you want to see me talk, but there’s no new information. Or new Dog Hazel.
Since Ticket pointed it out in the comments, now I am suddenly very aware of the large cardboard box in the corner. Oh well, it’s worth it if it keeps the books my friend lent me in order and undamaged until I return them to her. And also reminds me to finish them so I can get them back. She let me the entire run of the Discworld Witches series! That’s a big deal! I shouldn’t forget.
New video day! So you can all admire how nice my braid looks. My sister bought me the same hairbrush she uses, and it is sooooooo much better. Brushing and braiding only takes half an hour now instead of an hour. Oh, and Dog Hazel is there at the beginning, and then got bored and walked away to play with her wibble-wobble.
Thank goodness, after my string of hot unhappy looking videos, I finally look good. This is the video to share with people if you want to sell them on my channel! Because, so pretty. It’s really rainy here and I think the soft light, combined with my disgusting tangled hair (I went swimming a lot yesterday) and my nice new shirt ended up with a great look. Oh, and my thoughts are good too. But mostly, don’t I look pretty? Instead of like I am about to die of heatstroke?
Look! Me talking! And Dog Hazel’s little head and butt.
Sorry, didn’t realize the microphone was sensitive enough to pick it up. I promise, I’m not torturing her, unless refusing to give her a second dinner just because she forgot she had the first dinner (she real dumb) is considered torture. Oh, also box office discussion.
Another youtube video! I am on a roll. You can ignore it if you want, but I am trying to get back in the youtube groove, see if it will do me any good for blog views (so far, better than podcasts, but still not great).
Sun’s still out, I had a few extra minutes this morning, why not? I also was up way too late last night, so my head-mouth-thinking is not ideal. Look forward to a lot of moments when I get lost in my own head for a second and you can visibly see the wheels spinning as I try to get out of a thought rut. Really, this post is a lot better.
I woke up yesterday and went “hey! What’s that strange brightness out my window? Could it be SUNLIGHT??? For the first time in two weeks?” And then here’s the real miracle, the same thing happened today!!!!!! So I took it as a sign that I should shoot as many videos as possible while I have light. “As many as possible” meaning, one ten minute video in the morning before I leave for the day, only to return when it is already dark.
Yet another disastrous video. It’s the stupid sun! Which is not coming out any more. And the only way I can get the right kind of light is if I use sunlight. Oh well, again, the content is good even if the visuals are fuzzy.
Be warned, the video quality is VERY VERY POOR. My radiators turned on, which created a persistent hiss in the background. I had to turn on a light because it was so overcast outside which gave a very odd and very unflattering light to it. But at least my voice is good and strong, so you can always hear me.
Not something worth discussing in a post, but seemed right for a video. Watch if you want, discuss in the comments.
How is this even possible? Oh, and THANK YOU to P in the comments for telling us. But mostly, how is this even possible?
You know what sells in the fast paced world of youtube? Sex! Sex and drugs! Which is to say, my hair video (the most wholesome version of sexy possible) and my initial box office video on super druggy Arjun Reddy are the two most popular. So I combined them and did another Arjun Reddy box office post this morning, while multitasking and brushing out my night time braid.
I did it! I figured out how to add a title sequence with music to my youtube videos without breaking copyright laws!!! It’s a MIRACLE!!!! Only, I can only do it using the youtube editor tool that will only be around until September 20. Oh well.
Have I mentioned that technology hates me? Or at least, doesn’t like me much? Following your notes on my last post, I tried a fast-talking excited video. And then after 3 days of trying, have totally failed to figure out how to add graphics (the other big suggestion). So put a pin in the graphics requests (unless you have a suggestion for a free program I can download to do them), and just focus on the talking head part of it.
