For those who do not know, there is a forum where people talk about YouTube members and videos called YouTubeTalk. I am one of over a thousand members there. The boards are well moderated; most people are nice and there is no flaming. If you decide to join, check out my posts there, especially the ones in my Child Board - Kenny's Column. Thanks!

Many of the popular YouTube personalities are also members YouTubeTalk. It's a great place to interact with them in a more controlled atmosphere than the chaos of video comments. There are also members who are less well known, but who have some talent, and I am going to introduce you to some of them in this post.

Matt Harding Tribute Collaboration
There is a YouTube video that you may have seen called "Where the Hell is Matt?" It has over a million views! Matt Harding has been going around the world and doing a little dance in front of interesting scenery. Now down2infinity (Real name, Sean), who usually makes magic videos, is creating a tribute to Matt. He is asking everyone to sent a short clip (30 seconds) of themselves (or someone!) doing the "Matt dance" at an interesting location. The project is complete, and here is the resulting video!

Tribute to the ladies of youtube
Victoriasparda is an active member of YouTubeTalk and likes to make new members feel welcome, as do I. We both visit the Introduction section often and try to respond to new member's hellos. Victoria's videos are sometimes issue oriented and she likes to include some of her own music on occasion. I've picked a video to embed that is her tribute to several of the ladies who make videos on YouTube. She has edited some of their clips into Cyndi Lauper's "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" video. Have a look; you'll recognize some of these YouTube ladies!

Unbelievable magic!
There are two young guys who use the name Aliboy and work as a team to make videos. They are new to YouTubeTalk and YouTube and they are having a lot of fun making videos. But it's obvious that they have talent; they play off each other very well. I'd compare them to Laurel and Hardy, Abbott and Costello, or even Beavis and Butthead! Here's the first of 9 videos that they've made so far. Enjoy!

Devil Wears Prada Review
Matsie is another active member of YouTubeTalk. Mattie, her real name, has made 12 videos and most are vlogs. But her first film is a tribute to her mother with the message of cancer awareness. Below, I've included a smart review she did of the movie "The Devil Wears Prada".

So who exactly is behind YouTubeTalk and why are they so unwilling to reveal themselves?

Supposedly they are made up of popular YouTube members and YouTube employess. They don't want their haters to come over to the forum so they don't reveal who they are.
