"Exploding Head - Sony Vegas Tutorial" by Richw4
If you can't tell I just love this man by now, well then come on read my reviews. Its time for another Sony Vegas Tutorial, I always get excited when he comes out with a new one. Not only do I learn how to do something new, he makes it fun, and puts links on the side bar for everything you need to make your videos work. I love this one. Little Rich teaches us how to make your head Explode, hehe. Learn how to do this neat trick and show all your friends. That's what I did, lol.

"Demon Face Vegas Tutorial" by Richw4
Little Rich again with an amazing Sony Vegas tutorial. I love this; I used his techniques on a video of my 12 year old nephew for his birthday -- he was talking about it for weeks. In this tutorial you are going to learn how to turn your face into a demon. I love the fact he takes time to explain the tutorial to you and how easy he makes it. I got it right my first try. No wonder he is one of my favorites!

Here is one way to create a demon face. Not good if there is a lot of moving of the actor as you would have to key frame the masks.
You can also place the copied clip UNDERNEATH the main clip and mask out the mouth area on the main vid (it will give a better blend but you will struggle to to the eyes)
"Charlie bit my finger - again!" by HDCYT
Kids do the craziest things, haha! This video always makes me laugh. I keep asking myself every time I watch it, why would you put your finger back into his mouth? LOL You have got to see this video. The baby laughing is a riot. If I just had a bad day, I turn this on and I always get a good laugh. They are so cute, and well, being silly is a kid's job and they do it well.

Even had I thought of trying to get my boys to do this I probably couldn't have, neither were coerced into any of this and neither were hurt (for very long anyway). This was just one of those moments where I had the video camera out because the boys were being fun, and they provided something really very funny.
"My dog is smarter than yours" by BorderCollie34
Okay, this is amazing, I adore this video. If you're an animal lover like me, you have got to see this. Wrigley is a 9 month old border collie, his master tells him to retrieves 16 of his toys by name and color and he does! I just love the way Wrigley's little head turns to the side as if he is listening and waiting for her to ask for something else. Amazing how smart animals are; she has lots of videos of Wrigley and his adorable tricks.

"Dark Symphony Christine Feehan Book Trailer" by cosproductions
I adore reading, and this account by cosproductions has book trailers. I love book trailers and good ones are so hard to find. I am writing on the ones he does about the best selling author Christine Feehan's "Dark Series". I am a HUGE fan of Christine Feehan, and seeing these book trailers made me want to read the Dark Series all over again. Thank you cosproductions for having these all in one place. This book trailer is about the book, Dark Symphony, book 10 in this series. I read this book last year and then saw he had this video book synopsis and I had to see it. To see words you have read brought to life even if its only for a few minutes is awesome. This video has haunting music that I love, and I love the fact they look like real people. Lets face it, no one looks like the men in theses books. They are only in the author's and reader's minds.
Please read my Review of the Dark Series Books.

What is Garage Rock?
Garage Rock is a sub-genre of Rock that started in the 60s. When The Beatles hit the United States, every kid dreamt of starting a Rock Band and being the Next Big Thing! And by the time Man walked on the Moon, 40 years ago today, thousands of Garage Bands had come and gone, leaving behind some groovy tunes!
According to Garage Rock Radio Records:
If you enjoy the Beatles, Stones, Kinks, Who, Monkees, Animals, Doors, Beach Boys, Jefferson Airplane, Iron Butterfly and similar bands, you might like [Garage Rock].
According to Wikipedia:
"Garage rock is a raw form of rock and roll that was first popular in the United States and Canada from about 1963 to 1967... "Garage rock" comes from the perception that many such performers were young and amateurish, and often rehearsed in a family garage... Typical themes revolved around the traumas of high school life. The lyrics and delivery were notably more aggressive than was common at the time, often with growled or shouted vocals that dissolved into incoherent screaming... In the late 1990s, Steven Van Zandt ("Little Steven") became a torchbearer, spokesperson, and proponent for both garage rock and the garage rock revival... In 2002, he started a syndicated radio program called Little Steven's Underground Garage and has also launched an Underground Garage channel on the Sirius Satellite Radio network. Van Zandt has described the music format as "Groups that inspired the Ramones, groups inspired by the Ramones, and the Ramones."
I am a huge fan of Garage Rock! There are some great bands around today that play music inspired by 60s Garage Rock. Among the best are McFadden's Parachute and Lyndsey Price. Here are 2 videos of McFadden's Parachute recorded at a live performance, and one for Lyndsey Price's recent song about the quest to get a Garage Rock exhibit at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Enjoy!
For more real 1960s Garage Rock, visit GarageRockRadio.com.
To learn more about McFadden's Parachute and Lyndsey Price, visit Garage Rock Radio Records.
After the videos are AmazonMP3 widgets with High Quality samples of the tracks from recent McFadden's Parachute and Lyndsey Price releases. Have a listen!

CelestialSam Writes About Aaron Weiss
Our favorite YouTube lip-synch sensation who has developed into an actor extraordinaire, Miss CelestialSam has provided this post to tell you all about Aaron Weiss, a musician and freegan. What's a freegan? Read on! Along with her aforementioned qualities, Sam is also a talented writer, and we're always happy to receive posts from her!
Be sure to watch Sam in her latest video, Clairiam (An original poem recitation). I love it; you will too!
How to Change the World
Aaron Weiss, lead singer of the little-known band, mewithoutYou was asked about the changes he'd like to see made in the world. He sincerely and humbly responds with a parable about contentment and how we can never really know what's good or what's bad. He also brings the abstract idea of world peace into perspective and asks, "What about the guy next to you? Do you have love for him?"

At the Invisible Children benefit concert at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, Causecast asks participating musicians for the changes they would like to see in the world. Aaron Weiss from mewithoutYou responds.
Have something to say? SAY IT!! Shoot and upload your own video to http://www.causecast.org and tell us. The people have spoken: these are the changes we would like to see!
The Veggie Bus
Aaron Weiss runs his tour bus on 15-20 cents per gallon. How does he do this, you ask? Vegetable oil. When touring, he and his band, mewithoutYou, take restaurant's refuse vegetable oil for free. Aaron explains how his Veggie Bus burns cleaner on this renewable resource and limits dependence on foreign oil.

Here's a clip of Aaron Weiss showing the mewithoutYou veggie tour bus. The full version & more is on the DVD: Another World is Possible Vol III - Creation. Co-directed by Shane Claiborne & Jamie Moffett Check it out at: http://awip.us
Aaron Weiss is a freegan, who practices what he preaches, eating discarded food and running his tour bus on waste vegetable oil. Freegans are, in a sense, anti-consumerists living alternative lifestyles that don't promote greed or fuel power hungry corporations. Aaron believes that in order to change the world, one must improve oneself first by setting an example to influence others.

this is an interview with Aaron weiss from mewithoutyou
After seeing Aaron in person in Detroit on July 4th, I knew my respect and admiration for this virtuoso was not misplaced. In a world of hypocrisy, Weiss is a shining paradigm of virtue and selflessness. A glass can only spill what it contains; and from Aaron, pours an unparalleled zeal to serve God by glorifying Him with beautifully metaphorical lyrics that he shares with a world in dire need of lessons of morality and brotherly love.
The Fox, the Crow and the Cookie is one of mewithoutYou's such songs on the pitfalls of pride. View it exclusively here:

Fun Summer Videos
How's your summer going so far? Been on vacation? Spending your time by the pool? Seen some good movies? I'll bet you've watched a ton of YouTube videos! Here are four fun summer videos you may have missed.
But first, The News! Michael Jackson may be gone but he's not forgotten. He may become more famous after death than when he was alive, much like Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. Did you see the Memorial Special on TV yesterday? I did, many moving moments, especially at the end with Michael Jackson's 11 Year Old Daughter "Paris" Tearful Goodbye. Here's a link to some clips from the Michael Jackson Memorial program.
Michael Jackson is growing in popularity on YouTube too! Last week he entered the Top 100 Weekly Chart for the first time, and at number 39! This week, Michael Jackson moved up another 10 spots, with 63,495 new subscribers. How much will Michael Jackson move up next week? Be sure to check The Chart each week!
Be sure to watch the Featured Video on this week's YouTube Top 100 Weekly Chart - YouTrax Bunch - a parody of the Brady Bunch opening credits! This is an excellent video made by Michael Boyce on his tinkermusic and YouTraxTV Channels. Michael does interview videos with YouTubeStars like Krista Nicole, Tiffany Jo Allen, Alyssa Bernal, Angelica Vasilcov, Savannah Berry and many more!
Do you have pets? How'd that go for ya? Having pets is a responsibility if you want them to stay alive and thrive. It didn't work out so well for Alyssa. First the mice died, then she tried Cactus plants - should be easy to care for them, right? Umm, well, let's see how that went! :) Alyssa always makes fun videos, watch them all and subscribe!
Have you recently lost a pet? Here's an article on how to deal with it.
Are you in a Long Distance Relationship, like Alyssa? Here's ideas on how to make it work!

R.I.P. Jane, you stupid jerk.
HayleyGHoover is one of the best young vloggers on YouTube! She is funny, creative, a good singer and actress. She's also a teenager, and teenagers have "a lot of angst!" So she's used to getting looks when she displays it, but now she's getting a different look. Why? Watch the video!

I normally script my videos a day or two ahead of time, but this one was all done on the fly. Can you tell? Haha. :)
Lucy is another great young vlogger. Here, she talks about two recently popular websites, "What the heck!?!? These websites are stupid!" But Lucy finds some funny posts on the sites. Watch and enjoy Lucy's insights!

Here's one from Last Summer. Alissa sings a song thats amusing right from the first chord. She tells you how to put a link in the YouTube description in the sidebar, and how to point to it! Just push Play, and enjoy!
Made by: MissAlissa15
An original song by Alissa (whoa, that's me!!)
It skips a bit in places, but whatever. You get the point.
You've got a friend,
You put inside your vid,
You better put their,
Link in the sidebar.
Show it to your fans,
Point to the link in the sidebar.
It's never where you,
Think it is.
Damn you, link in the sidebar.
But here's a trick:
Don't wanna look like a n00b
It's really quite simple...
You put your right hand in,
You put your finger out
Point to your left shoulder
Sure it feels a little weird at first
But pointing to the wrong side is epically worse
You'll see when you edit
You're a true youtube win
Impressing your viewers,
And you can remember when you're filming.
You'll never go wrong,
And if you forget,
Well you can sing this little song.
Links in the sidebar,
Are not only for your friends,
Give credit to your music,
Or your youtube career will end.
Next time you see someone do it,
And it's an epic fail,
Just L.I.T.S me,
And I will spin them this little tale.

Following an number of requests on how I did a 'levitating' bottle in a recent video, here is a tutorial to show how it is done.
The sound of the bottle hitting the camera in the original video was simply recorded separately and added into the video. I also 'shook' the camera to make it look like the bottle had hit it. This tutorial is just to give you the basic idea and the techniques are really useful, I used it recently in a video 'Hide n Seek' to throw a book accross a split screen:
