Cinema du jour 17 - Money, Love and Laughs!




This is part 17 in our continuing series, Cinema du jour, the movie of the day. In this post, we'll watch two videos about the upcoming changes at YouTube that supposedly will allow videomakers to share in the revenue generated by their videos. We'll also kick off the Saint Valentine's season of love by learning about Saint Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of Love. Then, if you haven't seen it yet, you'll get to watch one of the funniest segments from the TV show "Whose Line is it anyway?"

Before we get to the videos, I want to comment on this week's Top 100 Weekly Chart. The top 4 positions stayed the same, but miaarose continued her rapid rise by moving up 4 spots from number 9 last week to number 5. Renetto only dropped 2 places, from 18 to 16, despite the generally negative reaction to his "Traitor" video. He even gained 213 new subscribers! Have a look at the Weekly Chart and see who else moved up, moved down, or debuted this week.

Also, please read our newest LiveVideoStars post about two aspiring actresses, AllyCat and Iowagirl. Thanks!


Vloggin' For Dollars
Always insightful YouTube blogger Tom (tlg847) (read more here) has made a video about YouTube's future plans to introduce some form of revenue sharing - videomakers are supposed to be able to earn money from their YouTube videos. Tom talks about paid subscription versus ad supported models of video hosting business and concludes that ad supported systems seem to be more viable. Tom also makes the point that there's nothing wrong with being paid to make videos, but if a person is being paid to promote something, they should reveal that fact. He goes into a good amount of detail in this 10 minute video; it's very informative. Have a look and listen to what Tom has to say about this interesting pending development!

Money, Money, Money, Money... Money is coming to YouTube.
Popular YouTube blogger Renetto (read more here) is back again with another video about YouTube paying videomakers to make videos. He states that he has been paid twice by YouTube for videos he has made but says that he does not know if any other members have been paid for videos. He also discusses what Tom talked about - the news that YouTube plans to pay videomakers in some sort of shared revenue arrangement. It may be financially rewarding to pay attention to this pending development!

St Dwynwens Day
The delightful and always entertaining YouTube member known as Darahgna (read about her, here), also known as Angharad John, is back with a video about LOVE! It seems that January 25th was Saint Dwynwen's Day. Saint Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of Love, similar to Saint Valentine. Angharad tells us all about Dwynwen and her holiday. What a great start to the season of Love! I'm looking forward to more Love videos as Valentine's day approaches. =D

Funniest Whose Line Ever
Have you seen this very funny segment from ABC's improv comedy show, "Whose Line is it anyway?" Over 800 thousand have! Richard Simmons joins the regular cast as they play the "living scenery" game. The cast and the audience almost go into convulsions from laughing hysterically! This probably shouldn't be viewed by young children or the easily offended, but the rest of you will laugh till you cry! :D
