So, I saw a thread recently titled something like "I dare you to find a stranger youtube video than this" and it was pretty weird! (But, it was kind
of gross, so I'm not going to post a link.)
However, I always thought some of my youtube vids were always some of the strangest, most random bits of obscurity and mediocrity around. Those who
know me best know that I've been experimenting for a while trying to find the winning formula for becoming a youtube sensation without really doing
anything worthy of attention!
So, a friend and I record some of our jams sometimes (we're really at the bottom of the barrel when it comes to musical talent so don't be too harsh
because we'd have to step it up just to be worthy of garage band status,) but we still know how to have fun with our music. Also, neither of us can
really write lyrics or sing too well, so most of the time we end up just manipulating sound boards or sound bites in some way.
Hope you at least enjoy it a little bit. Mods, if this thread gets too much negative feedback, feel free to drop the guillotine (on the thread! not on
me!). Without further wasting your time with text, here's our google-image music video:
Where did you find that stat? I pulled in 8,585 channel views in the last 30 days with 16,205 lifetime channel views. I get over a hundred hits a day
on a couple of my more mainstream and practical videos.
But yeah...I'm looking more for the hundreds of thousands of views range. A pie-in-the-sky silly goal, but a goal nonetheless.
(you are correct though that my more personal, "experimental" videos don't pull in many views.) The posted video above hasn't even been posted for 48

Haha yeah! I am the drummer. But my friend and I are well-versed in the classics. It is pretty Zappa-esque, isn't it? Both the guitar licks and the
video and song itself as a whole. Zappa might be a little bit proud. ATS, probably not so much.
It was kind of funny when we thought about doing this video. I kept saying, "Play it funkier! It needs more funk!" And sure enough, it got pretty
funky with that wah pedal.
I will now be linking this to anyone that tries to talk to me too early in the morning. It will make them feels as uncomfortable as I feel when you
e-mail me at 8am because your cat did something cute.
