Why am I doing this anyway

Everything I have read about promoting your you tube channel says the most important things are to upload videos on a regular schedule and comment on other people's videos. I upload videos regularly, two times a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, but the commenting I am not as good at.  But, getting subscribers and views had been slow, slow, slow to almost non-existant. I was going to give it my ALL.  I started watching lots of videos and commenting.  Then I realized, I was not having fun.  I felt like I was trying to be in a world where I really didn't fit....more

UCLA Woman's Racist Video Rant Goes Viral

When I started seeing tweets and Facebook updates mentioning a “Ching Chong” YouTube video, my first thought was, Oh no, not Rush Limbaugh again! Even more disappointing, this time the remarks are being made by a young woman at one of California’s top universities —- UCLA student Alexandra Wallace. I really debated about whether I should write about this or not, as I don’t want to give these racist antics any more publicity. But, the Internet ethics it brings up are just too important to ignore. ...more

Miley & The Gang - Sexy Too Soon

Miley Cyrus and the stripper pole at Teen Choice awards - did you see it?  I saw it in the clips shown on TV and checked it out on You Tube, and while it wasn't a full pole dance, it was meant to simulate one.  Honestly it wasn’t a shock.  When the skirts on pre-teen and teen stars on TV rose up to crotch level, there wasn’t anyplace else to go except to take that next step into pretend-stripper territory.  No offense to strippers.  No offense to mini-skirt wearing ladies.  I was one of the latter and have nothing against the former. ...more
