YouTube Killed the MTV Star

I have spent hours on end clicking from video to video. What I’ve found myself looking at lately are musicians. I’m not talking about the ones that are discovered and known all over the world. I like watching individuals with their instruments, sitting in their bedrooms in front of their webcams.

Michelle sent me this link. Who wouldn’t love a song about Mario Kart? He doesn’t just sing about video games. He has some original music and even some covers of popular songs.

Speaking of covers, this ukelele cover of Weezer’s Keep Fishin’ was absolutely brilliant. This girl is an absolute weirdo and really, those are the best people on the Internet. Be sure to check out her Kanye West cover too.

This one isn’t a music video, but it’s an incredible concept. It’s a call to musicians all over the Internet for video tryouts for what I hope will be an incredible musical event.

The brilliance of YouTube is that anyone can be a star. Who knows? You may even see me singing off key one day, dragging my feet backwards across the carpet, thinking I can do the moonwalk. Don’t hold your breath on that one.
