3 Ladies and a Blast from the 80s

Hello, video viewers! Here's another set of videos worth watching, comin' atcha from the YouTubeStars studios. See Faintstarlite at the YouTube debates, celebrate HallieBaby's anniversary, listen to wisdom from YsabellaBrave, and dance to a New Wave powerpop video from 1980. It's all right here for your viewing enjoyment!

But first, The News. This week saw two new entries on the YouTube Top 100 Weekly Chart. Debuting at number 100 is hoiitsroi. Watch their latest, a dance workout spoof, here. Coming on the charts at number 98 is roadrunnerrecords; stop by for your daily dose of METAL! \m/ At the head of the charts, esmeedenters and miaarose swap 3rd and 4th places. Esmee picked up 2575 new subs this week, pushing her ahead of mia but still 30 thousand behind 2nd place Lonelygirl15. LisaNove moves up one spot to number 8. Is her spam campaign (automated or not) helping her rise or do people love her vids? Maybe all the controversy is helping. What do you guys think? Go check out the rest of the Hot 100 and see the big movers this week - Jordan... and vlogo...

Surprise! I'm at the CNN/YouTube Debate!

Did you watch the Democrat Presidential candidates' debate sponsored by CNN and YouTube? I did; pretty interesting! I thought it was a fresh way to ask questions and get answers at this early stage of the contest. In this video, we see Ester (faintstarlite) as she files a report from Charleston, South Carolina on the day of the debate.

What a LOVEly Year

Some people just look great on camera. They seem to exude personality and light up the computer monitor with their presense. HallieBaby is one such person. This British lass from Bristol has a Musicians account on YT but she does plenty of vlogs too. She has 4442 subscribers to her 51 vids and just celebrated her one year anniversary of YouTubing by putting out this retrospective of some of her shining moments from past videos. Let Hallie bring a smile to your face; watch this video!

Keep enjoying her music videos, but also subscribe to her words of wisdom over at her talk channel, ysabellabravetalk. This is good stuff; check it out!

Revillos - Scuba Scuba

Here's a fun music video from The Revillos, a cool New Wave dance band from the 80s. If you like the B-52s, the Go-Gos, Blondie or 80s music in general, you'll love this one. So clear a little room in front of the computer before you press play; you'll want to get up and DANCE to this one! Go a little crazy; act a little silly! Heck, that's what YouTube is all about! Now, press Play - dance and shout and work it on out - yeah Baby!

This is part 21 in our continuing series, Cinema du jour, the movie of the day. In this episode we'll see a video on Videomaking Advice, watch a Japanese Love Story, hear a cool song and find out about some YouTube News.

First, let's have a look at this week's YouTube Top 100 Weekly Chart. Daxflame continues to climb the chart. This week, he is at Number 44, up 8 from last week. Also, EclecticAsylumArt, the fabulous artist we mentioned here moved up 16, to number 69. EclecticAsylumArt just painted Daxflame using Hershey's Chocolate Syrup! See it here. New on the chart at number 95 is Tommy Chong from the comedy duo Cheech and Chong. He just created his channel, CitizenChong, a few weeks ago. Check it out - but don't do drugs!!!

One more point, then on to the videos. I mentioned in this post that Daxflame's sister is making videos on YouTube as well. She is closing her laladylalyn account and will now be uploading to her DylanPatrello channel. She is a pretty good singer/songwriter; go subscribe!

Smart ways to gain YouTube subscribers - Part 1: The Basics

Castaa (Jon from San Francisco) has recently made a detailed video on ways to gain subscribers. He talks about 4 things that you can do to insure that your videos are interesting enough for viewers to subscribe to your channel. One point he makes is that you should check out what popular videomakers are doing, and suggests that you check out the YouTube Top 100 Weekly Chart for that purpose. Thanks for the mention, Jon! Be sure to check out Jon's 30 other videos, including a 2 part documentary on "The Meaning of Life"

This very cool song was a hit in the early 60s by Booker T and the MGs. Watch and listen as it is covered by ontrashakotra, a man from Georgia named J David B.
