I've totally changed my opinion about youtube watchers being a bit weird.
It's an improvement on 1 Corinthians 13.
The greatest of these is Youtube.
The best thing that ever happened on the planet
I had to read that at Mother Spirit's funeral - should've just whacked on some You Tube clips
Eric Arthur Blair said "money" (Keep The Aspidistra Flying).
I say Youtube.
If you'd have said to me when I was seventeen that I would be able to revisit as often as I wished, everything I hold dear in life and forever, I wouldn't have been able to take it in.
But I can do it now!
What's not to like?
getting high and watching tube
Now that schools no long teach kids how to make things in the way they used to, youtube is a great resource to show anyone who's interested, how stuff is actually made.
One of the more intriguing videos I've watched in this respect is this one, which describes how to make decorative wooden bowls without a lathe, and using only a fraction of the amount of wood it would take to turn a bowl the traditional way.
First there was the Hoseasons adverts on the telly.
Then you went to the Norfolk Broads and all was well.
Then more people came onto the planet and the Norfolk broads became hell.
Then Youtube arrived.
Hahaha that £19.00 a week now translates to over £400 per week and upwards depending upon the time and place.
Yet i do remember the advert.
Even without clicking the play arrow, I can sing the Hoseasons song
Old comedy shows are the best, so much funnier than anything on TV now!!
Thanks Lapinrose.that series took me back to the days I taught ESL to adults in Newham.Great fun was had, and a lot work.
You taught English, oldsomeman?
I love the gentle understatement of that question, Aspen_2.
So pleased for you.
Yes Aspen, I actually did teach English.Shock horror!
What I appear on here is not all that I am. I used to teach English to Foreign students/ adults at FE college and also was an ESL teacher in Primary School.
I am , or was ,man of many talents
And excellent concerts.
41 minutes in, amazing jam session
And excellent car crashes, plane crashes and other fatalities.
Or biographies about folks like prince
When I was unemployed and had more time I subscribed to a lot of channels on youtube. Now I'm back in work I can't go on as often so when I logged in on Friday night I found I had something like 300 videos waiting for me...
So right now I'm pruning the channels back to something manageable.
