Cinema du jour, part 8




This is a recurring feature of YouTubeStars. I discuss some videos that were recently added to YouTube, or ones that I've just discovered. We'll start with a News video, then look at two serious films, and end with a comedy!

YTNews 24.8 -06
There are several YouTube members who are now doing news videos. A new and above-average News Program is being made by YTNews. The plan is to have multiple "reporters" who will make short news segments for upcoming News videos. Send a message to YTNews if you would like to get involved! Here is their first News program:

Anorexia: The Physical Devastation
Eating Disorders are common these days. Society promotes the idea that thin people are beautiful, glamorous, popular and happy. But there is a real risk to your health if you take extreme measures to lose weight. Take the time to watch this video by eniwekwe, a 26-year-old woman who has permanent health problems due to Anorexia. It just may save your life!

Sufficiency
Here is a video by VioletKitty411, a 35-year-old woman who was off work for a year and a half after being involved in a severe car wreck. She was hit by a drunk driver. She has had to deal with the results every day, but her faith gets her through it. Here's a little bit of her story:

i hate cutiemish
We are going to end this post with a hilarious comedy skit from cutiemish. Instead of her usual adorable lipsynching, she acts out the part of several different "haters" who just don't appreciate cutiemish! Listen to her faux accents; look at her costumes and gestures - you'll get a laugh out of this video!

YouTube Love Story! <3




Two popular YouTube members have fallen in love! We have been hearing parts of this story for the last several weeks from Blunty3000, the male component of this love affair. The story starts with Blunty (28-year-old Australian named Nate), telling us that he has met a wonderful woman on YouTube, and that she is flying half-way around the world to meet him!

RE: YouTube Competition - My Girl Is Cool!
Blunty3000 makes a response video to a video about a man who loves his wife and wants 20 people to tell about their "Cool girlfriend/wife". He offers $100 for the best story (the contest is still going on, enter!) He beams as he tells us about his "Mystery Girl"; watch!


If you can't see the video above, watch it at YouTube.

Mystery Girl Revealed
A few weeks go by and last weekend, Mystery Girl arrives at Nate's house! But who the heck is he introducing as Mystery Girl in this video??? That's no girl! Oh, wait, I think they are going to show her now... Ahh, the suspense! Do they really plan to tell us who she is, or not?


If you can't see the video above, watch it at YouTube.

Mystery Girl Revealed - PART 2
After nearly a minute more of playful suspense, Mystery Girl is revealed! It's..... I'm not going to tell you! Watch it yourself!

Okay, you did watch the last video, didn't you? Now you know who Mystery Girl is. Let's learn a little about her. Watch this video as she talks about a new job that she loves!

Cinema du jour, part 7 - Songs and Dances




This is a recurring feature of YouTubeStars. I discuss some videos that were recently added to YouTube, or ones that I've just discovered. So here's the Movies of the day, part 7 - Songs and Dances.

Goodness Gracious, I Love YouTube
Last night, a cool new video was released by dayoffproductions. This is a film that packs a lot of fun in a little bit of time. A bunch of the better known YouTube members - Geriatric1927, Brookers, FilthyWhore, LittleLoca, Morbeck, Lazydork, Lisa Nova and more - are shown on the video while a clever parody song is sung to the tune of Jerry Lee Lewis' "Great Balls of Fire". If you need one video to show a friend what YouTube is all about, show them this one!


If you can't see the video above, watch it on YouTube.

LonelyGirl: Lazydork is Better Than You
Here's a funny and creative rap video by rickyste who also goes by the name Lazydork. This video came out on August 1st and was featured by YouTube. Now, it's had almost 440 thousand views and over 2600 comments! You'll get a laugh from watching this musical movie!


If you can't see the video above, watch it on YouTube.

Re: LonelyGirl: Lazydork is Better Than You
TheHill88, a 17-year-old Australian woman named Caitlan, made one of 11 response videos to Lazydork's rap. Her cute appearance and cool rap landed her, too, on YouTube's featured video list. This video, added just 4 days ago, has already had over 740 thousand views, over 6800 comments and 47 response videos! Watch and you'll see why!


If you can't see the video above, watch it on YouTube.

The Re-Evolution of My Musical Tastes
Here's a funny and entertaining video from NamaeganaiFilms, a 23-year-old man living in the US named Marcus. Marcus had to remake this video (hence the "Re-Evolution") because his landlady didn't want his apartment, shown in the original version, to be shown in his videos! The video chronicles Marcus' changing musical tastes over the last several years. He provides a sample of a song or two from each musical genre along with his excellent dance moves. If you loved the famous "Evolution of Dance" video, you'll love this one too!


If you can't see the video above, watch it on YouTube.

YouTubeStars News 8-18-06




There's a lot going on at YouTube these days! I'll use this post to report on some interesting items.

Congrats to geriatric1927! Peter, aged 79, is now the #1 Most Subscribed Channel of All Time! If you haven't seen him yet, go watch this gentleman as he talks about his long and interesting life. His style is straightforward, yet captivating. Peter has become an inspiration to the entire YouTube community.

LittleLoca and Silent Girl have done a photo shoot with LA photographer Sean Azul. The ladies are looking good as they walk around their East L.A. neighborhood. See the slideshow here.

FilthyWhore (Jacci Jageman) is working as an independent contractor for Riffage.com. She does news reports about bands and the music scene. She has a blog at Riffage and has started a new account, riffagedotcom, on YouTube.

There is another new "news" program on YouTube, from Scriggity.com. Their YouTube account is getscriggity. Shauna reads news stories submitted by viewers and periodically pops up to flippantly comment on her own reports. It's hard to describe; you'll have to see it. Watch episode 3 - (8-17-06) on YouTube or on the Scriggity homepage; the third story is about our YouTubeStars thewinekone interview.

Cutiemish has landed a part in an upcoming movie. It has been said that the movie is The Margate Exodus. Congrats, Mishy! She talks about the movie in this video. Learn more about Mishy - read our interview with Cutiemish please.

YouTube itself is always in the news. Today there was an article in The Guardian that talks about YouTube's plans to host every music video ever made.
