Cinema du jour 21 - Cool recent videos

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"

Love Story Ending -My Heart is Broken, No!!-

This is the cutest video!!! Watch Lucymisser, a young Japanese woman, talk about a man she admired from afar at school. She likes him but there is no way that they can ever get together. Is Lucy okay with that? Yeah! This video has 350 thousand views - make sure you watch it too!

Embedding disabled by request, watch it on YouTube.

Green Onions

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. He played all the parts in this song and even edited together video of himself playing the guitar, keyboards and bass! Check it out and get up and dance!

YouTube Staff Picked Me! =)

Did you know that YouTube has a Blog on their site? Every week, the editors pick their favorite videos of the week - kind of like what I do! This week, editor Joe picked a video by faintstarlite, a young woman named Esther from the UK who I had just recently found and subscribed to. She is attractive and has a great smile! Check it out in this video, then watch some more - she has 85 videos uploaded so far!
