Opinion Time: You Tube Channel
I've thought a lot about starting a semi - regular vlog type thing on you tube. In my head it would have cool shots of the car driving, and be filled with interesting content. Stuff that would make people come back again and again. In reality, I'm not sure this would work out at all. Lets look at a few things.
One, I'm nothing pretty to look at. Jeremy Clarkson is better looking than me, and he ain't no Tom Cruise, Carey Grant or what ever dream boat you can think of.
Two, and speaking of Clarkson, I can't speak. well I can, but the delivery of the words never sound the same as the way the sound in my head right before I butcher them.
Three, location. Have I mentioned I live in what I consider a dull, dreary, uneventful and stagnant island? Unless of course you like shopping, then the skies the limit with more shopping than you can imagine, because thats all anyone seems to be doing. Did I also mention that to get off said island you either have to pay or travel out of your way to avoid the tolls. The same goes for getting back on the island. Lastly don't get me started on the lack of infrastructure provided to allow masses of people in all sorts of motor vehicles to move on and off the island, which means waiting in traffic.
Four, time. A lot of time is needed. First, you have to spend time shooting the video, and then time editing the video, so it looks like something a half blind and half deaf idiot would want to watch.
So with just those four points above, it sounds like I've talked myself out of doing a video thingamajig. Maybe not. cause these ideas are still rolling around in my head and I'm half mad enough to try....maybe...someday.
