I've been making a handful of changes in my life lately, and this is the first major change I'm applying to my youtube habits. It occurred to me that as much as I claim to want to support and encourage my fellow creative compatriots, I probably haven't actually watched 100% of anyone's videos (other than my own ... and even that's not true!). My thought was that if I can sit and watch the entire X-Files library, certainly I can do the same for some of my favorite youtubers. So this is "Daily Viewed" where I pick a youtuber and watch all of their videos, start to finish, from first to last. I'm not going to blog every single one, but obviously when I find something truly remarkable, I'll be sharing it here and on Facebook.
First up was AngryPunkBronxKid. Unfortunately, he doesn't have that "All Uploads" video view option on his channel page, which is counter-productive to my little project here. I left a comment asking him to reinstate the option and in the mean time, jumped over to Eric's channel.
I watched Eric's first four videos this morning and I can honestly tell you that there was nothing bad about any of them. It's clear that Eric has dramatically refined his technique over the years (his first video is dated December 20, 2007) but even his first videos are better than most of the junk cluttering YouTube and all demonstrate this guy's commitment to his creativity.
One video did stand out, and that's the one featured above. It's called "Invisibreakfast" and it really needs no description or commentary. Suffice it to say, when we sit down to generate an idea for something, one goal is to always be original and come up with something no one's ever seen before. I can honestly say that I've never seen Invisibreakfast before and the sheer simple brilliance of the concept makes me wonder why. Kudos, Eric.

Most of my production music is original but if I need something extra-special, I usually get it from AudioNautix.com:
