Like so many other people out there, I too am a fan of Youtube. Oh, the possibilities it brings. You can listen/watch music videos, find previews for your favorite shows, and if you're lucky, even watch some episodes.
It's also entertaining. Here's a great example of the entertainment it can bring: One day before my law class began, my friend and I were getting antsy. So what did we do? We pulled up youtube on the professors computer. Now, mind you, this computer was hooked to 2 different classrooms and anything we pulled up (since it was a DE...Distance Education class), showed up in the other classroom in another campus as well. So, like two geniuses that we were, we searched "dumb cheerleaders," "funny videos," and yes, "dumb blondes." Oh, gosh, the fun we had. And while one of the most epic dumb blonde videos was playing (link provided at the bottom), our professor walks in. Picture a giant projector screen covering most of the front of the classroom with a, well, not-so-smart person on Are You Smart Than A 5th Grader? front and center. Our professor literally stopped mid-stepped and watched what we were playing on technically his computer. And not thinking about it until the tech guy came in, oh lord, those poor students in the other classroom. They didn't see our teacher so they weren't sure why the hell that particular video was playing. Torn between the horror of this moron on their screen, they were trying to decide whether or not they needed to take notes. LOL
Well, you can imagine the scene. I really don't think I need to describe the rest of if for you, but we played about 15 different videos until our professor walked in.
So why am I mentioning youtube? Because there has always been something I've wanted to do. I love watching fanvids (usually Criminal Intent and, of course, Bobby and Alex). I ship them, I do. I love to watch them on screen and I love to see what kind of videos the loyal Criminal Intent fans can put together to bring me to tears. The song choice is everything in my opinion. You can have the best scenes from the series with a very well put together video, but if the song just doesn't work (for me anyway), then the video doesn't work. And I can't tell you the number of times I've ended up buying a song on iTunes because of how much I loved it in a Criminal Intent fanvid someone just did.
So, I want to make youtube videos. I want to put clips together and make other people cry for once! As someone once told me, some people make youtube videos which bring people to tears and others write fanfics; I do the latter but would like to try the former. I have a list of songs in mind. In fact, I've been making a list of songs I would like to use over the years and have slowly been asking other people to use the songs to make the video for me. So, I need help. I don't know how to do any of this but I'm up to the challenge...
