This thread is awesome. lethehateflowthroughyou.jpg
Hey BTSR. I am not going to spew hate like some of the folks here are. Keep doing this if it works for you. I looked at it and it for me is a bit over the top and I dont think that it would be something that I would follow. However I dont own the internet and it takes all kinds to make the world go round. I dont like Honda's either but it doesnt stop them from selling millions of them every year. Wish you nothing but the best.
I'm going to have to speak up, CD. This whole "I am not going to spew hate like some people are" thing is a pretty cowardly dodge. If you think someone is spewing hate, then quote them, name them, and shame them. Or, ignore them. Just don't throw out that line.
Here is why.
1. A real spew source is going to ignore you anyway.
2. The folks giving reasonable disagreement now are wondering if they really said something disagreeable.
3. Other guys just think you are being a smug jerk because, really, that's a pretty hateful attack if it's not warranted and since you didn't name the targets, you hit some bystanders for sure so your rhetorical jujitsu isn't really keeping you above the fray.
Now, I'm being tough on you, but this is a pet peeve.
The thing that bothers me is that it took me getting angry and making this to go viral. Why couldn't my regular videos go viral?
HELLCAT IN BROOKLYN shoulda blown up.
So now I see what I must do to pull $2000+ from Youtube each month.
I have to sell my rants.
@bigtruckseriesreview @ Youtube Nah, what made it go viral was that it was you being you. You weren't playing the "role" of auto journalist you were genuinely ticked-off at a segment that honestly doesn't get a lot of grief, muscle-car posers. That made it funny and unique, who picks on those guys? It's easy to pick on BMW douche-bags or cowboy wannabe pick-up drivers, but who picks on the muscle-car muscle-head? Anybody can buy a HELLCAT, but not everyone knows how to work it, baby
You gotta use the RED KEY!
Just be unique and most importantly be you
@bigtruckseriesreview @ Youtube "I have to sell my rants."
Maybe trademark "Seven Commandments for" or something like that. Try to keep the same format. Now that you've got an audience, keep it going. Don't let your new audience slip away. I know I've said this before, but I'm going to nag you again. If you're going to shoot video, visit Adorama or B&H for an iPhone SteadiCam mount. Keep the humor in your rants.
Are you after the money or the notoriety?
I mean, how many hours/days/years of effort did it take for you to arrive at this amount of money?
Which to me is not very much. I would assume you still need food stamps to survive.
I work for a day to earn that.
So, are you really in front.
I do think "making it" on the internet or youtube is akin to becoming a rock star.
As I've always told plenty of guys I knew who played in bands hoping to make some decent money that the odds were stacked against them and continue learning how to keep on earning real money.
The internet is the same. You will need plenty of hours to make a living out of it.
If you enjoy it, all the better. But from what I can gather years of effort you can only make $800 a month is not the best use of your resources.
There are plenty of good guitarists out there who just never made more than a few tips and at most a couple hundred a night.
Good luck with your ventures.
I took a lonnnng break from TTAC as it was eating into my Cisco study time. A few months ago I permitted myself the luxury of reading and posting again only to discover that BTSR against all odds was still shilling himself and his herp-derp opinions gleaned from libertarian bumperstickers. SIGH. Looking back at what I missed I found this intriguing 'article' about BTSR being a virus, err viral - but no actual content above the comments.
WTF? Did Bertel's ghost come back and clean house?
Hey, but he made $530 !!!! He's gonna be rich!
