Cinema du jour 14 - tlg847, Heidiscope, miaarose, RYAN0617

This is part 14 in our continuing series, Cinema du jour, the movie of the day. In this post, I'll show you a video about the YouTube community, two music videos, and a funny stunt video - don't try this at home!

We CAN Do This!
YouTube wise man tlg847 (Tom) gives some of his thoughts on the effort to improve the YouTube community. Some YouTube videomakers have been severely attacked by YouTube "haters". Many people have been having trouble leaving comments on YouTube videos and the YouTube message system has been very quirky. (I have been unable to send messages in YouTube for weeks now. I still try because occasionally, one goes through. If you want to send me a message, please do it by email at KennyCraneATbellsouthDOTnet instead of through the YouTube message system.)

There is a discussion going on via videos about how to battle haters and what YouTube itself can and should do about haters, and also about the need for YouTube to get it's system working correctly. For a good list of videos that discuss the YouTube Community and the YouTube 2 idea (where another company may implement a YouTube clone that works better than YouTube - see our YTStats service for an example of a utility that provides better stats tracking and My Favorite Video functions than YouTube), read the January 5th News post at

Special Guest: Dr Lemur joins me
Here's an entertaining music video from a talented brother and sister. Heidiscope (Heidi, 22, from Australia) does a great job of singing a Beatles song (Blackbird) played on guitar by Dr Lemur. They end the video with some funny outtakes. Watch and enjoy!

Mia's Own Song!!
This is another music video. It's from miaarose, a very talented and attractive woman from the UK. Mia sings a song that she wrote, and accompanies herself on guitar. You'll also want to watch her lively performance of the classic song L.O.V.E.; it's excellent! Miaarose is getting a lot of attention on YouTube lately (she debuted this week at number 84 on the YouTube Top 100 Weekly Chart). Watch this video and you'll understand why!

Funny failed stunts
People do the strangest things! Sometimes they try tricks to impress their friends, and of course they have to capture the act on camera for posterity. Some of these stunts go very wrong! Watch this compilation of funny botched stunts and general craziness uploaded by RYAN0617; you're sure to laugh very hard!
