A new Buckman project: tubeclan.com
My wife and I have started a new web site:
It's a "best of youtube" web site, where you can sit and watch one fun thing after another, without having to sift through the junk. My wife and I take suggestions, watch them, and tag them so you can easily watch a single topic of videos (such as classical music, or satire)
I'm very much looking for suggestions of great youtube videos.
Please: email me with youtube urls that you think are amazing.
Not to worry, I'm still very much on Magnatune, this just seemed like a fun side project.
My wife blogged the launch:
YouTube is another of those internet phenomenons that comes along every few years.
John and I are always emailing each other and our friends (and vice versa) with links to great videos on YouTube. Sometimes when I go to YouTube for a particular video, the related videos are just as good. But more often they are not.
The common reaction to YouTube is "what a bunch of crap" and it is. That's what's so fabulous about it. Anyone can post their home-made video, no matter how bad it is. But many of them are great.
So, how do you find the great videos on YouTube? John had the idea to start a blog that embedded our favorite YouTube videos so they would all be together in one place. We brainstormed over some names and came up with:
John actually came up with that name. All the names I thought of weren't available, wah. We started it about a week ago and have been collecting our favorite videos. We also welcome suggestions for videos and will include the ones we like in TubeClan.
We hope you enjoy watching these videos as much as we do.
