I know, I know. I'm almost becoming FREEDO in my vanity at this point. But I'm sure Ragnar can come up with a silly argument that makes vanity a virtue. So, yeah. Anyway...

This summer, among other things, I resolved to build a YouTube channel that an average person (such as myself) could enjoy. And I realized that my two philosophy/political videos that I had up probably couldn't have been too interesting to too many people, so I took them down. Right now, I have up a cover song (which sucks a lot because I'm not a tenor and because it was my first time using the recording program I used) that perhaps more people will enjoy.

I was wondering, what would make an interesting and entertaining YouTube channel? What do you like to watch? What would you subscribe to? Thanks.

The best channel on youtube is sxephil. Apparently most people agree with me since he, just a youtuber, is the 1# most watched news source. Even more than FOX News.

I used to love sxephil. I then realized that he didn't really "say" anything that was too interesting or intellectually stimulating.

Still, he's a cool dude.

You're Asian. You should have Asian girl slaves. Jk.

3) Comedy

What kind?

Stand-up, spoofs, etc.

He's actually taken a turn for saying a lot more political things recently.

I don't subscribe to channels.

Make something exciting, compelling, original, out of the ordinary.

Show us something that will dazzle us.

you should just write down all your ideas and give them to some pretty girl. then she might become a hit and get sucked in by stardom and then she's dependant on you and you might get some sex. that's a win win for you. unless you're looking for the stardom.

Simple Plan debuted a new song, live on the Bamboozle tour two days ago. That was my reason for doing the cover... seeing as Simple Plan has a huge following, many fans would want to find the new song on YouTube. Luckily, I'm on the first page for the search "You Suck At Love."

Two people have twittered about my cover, which makes me feel good. :D

The only one I'm subscribed to is lissiemusic which is just this chick who does awesome covers that I really enjoy (sometimes better than the original, such as her take on Lady Gaga's Bad Romance).

What's your channel, PJ? I'll subscribe to it. So far I've liked your thing on rational egoism and your song was a good variation. I'd mostly just subscribe to my friends who have the same interests -- You're either going to appeal to a musical crowd (not likely as the big following for that are usually up and coming bands) or a more philosophical / academic crowd like the people here on DDO. I'd aim for the latter just cuz I'm not really sure what you could do that would make you unique or get people watching, ya know?

If I get a cam working I will respond to your video things on DDO in the future :)

I used Melodyne, in the hopes that I could use it to enhance my vocals.

I don't like it a lot, though. It's pretty basic, and as far I'm aware it has no support for MIDI.

Me, Vi, and L (Somewhat)have plans in the making for a Youtube channel. Essentially, it will focus on evolution, creationism, and other religious topics, and will be aimed at Agnostics, Atheists and Secularists. Anyone interested may sign-up.
Pizza. I have enormous respect for Pizza.

No, we're not arguing FOR creationism, we're arguing AGAINST creationism. It's an atheist/agnostic/secular channel.
I could give a f about no haters as long as my ishes love me.

Theists not really invited. Sorry bro. feel free to make responses to us though, we might be making videos about Islam, not about the theology, but probably about place its in modern society.
