Most YouTube films get hundreds, usually thousands of hits. Mine? Of the two films I’ve made, one got 20 hits (that’s up from 8) and the other got 88.
This is not a call for millions to log on and watch my films – little ditties about life and Costa Rica – rather, I am just fascinated at what we watch and what we’ll spend time filming. AND – that someone else will spend time – the finite time he/she has on this planet – watching all of this.
91,361 people viewed: How to fold your bra.
Magic? Think Again got 85667 hits. It’s about water and whiskey trading places in a glass.
T-shirt folding got 171,448 hits.
Joshy, a boy with Down Syndrome got 9615 hits.
Mookie and Sam (EP2) got 1,204,040 hits.
I can apply logic to the films and guess to some extent why people choose to watch a women with big breasts take off her shirt and then fold her bra, but why T-Shirt folding? Why the millions of other films?
Though I don’t spend a lot of time on YouTube. I love it. I love that it exists and that each and every film is there. Someone spent the time creating. And, that’s enough for me.
We the people, not guys in a board room, are putting life and humor and sentiment and information in front of the world to see – accessible to make, accessible to see.
This morning I chased around small rodents in hopes of getting a little footage for our next film here at MotherJungle.
Between the poop, screaming baby, and unruly six-year old, there may just be something there that someone will want to see.Filed under Costa Rica, Down Syndrome Costa Rica, Humor, Life in Costa Rica, Susan Lutz (Carmichael) | Comment (1)
