Some New YouTube Videos

I've been doing a bunch of YouTube videos over the past few days. I enjoy humor, and it's very rewarding when I get the nice compliments from people. As of now, I have 129 subscribers. I'm not bragging or anything, because really that's nothing compared to some of the other YouTube users. For me, it's a nice little reward that keeps me going.

I Will Rule the World

Wikipedia's Out to Get Me!

And of course you can see more of my videos on my channel. It's all in good fun.

Ignorant Use of English

It annoys me when I find most people don't know certain things about the language they speak that they really should know! I see it and hear it all over the place.

The first thing that annoys me is the improper use of "to" and "too". In fact, seeing the word "too" is very rare it seems. The word "to" usually refers to a destination. For example, I could say "I'm going to the store." I could also say "I need to do my taxes." The word "too" refers to a number. I could say "There are too many birds crapping on my car." The word can also be used to substitute the word "also". "I am writing a book too!"

The second thing that annoys me is the improper use of "translucency" and "transparency". So lets get them straight. Something that is transparent is said to be 100% translucent. Transparent is something you can see through completely. Translucency is a degree to which you can see through something. Most glass is transparent, whereas a compact disc is translucent (if you don't believe me, pick up a CD and look closely at the bottom of it). So please don't call something transparent when it's really only translucent!

I'd love to hear what things annoy you about how people use the English language. Leave a comment!

A New Extreme Story!

I barely made it! I said I would try to do a new episode of OMG Extreme Story Time either Friday or Saturday. Then I said it might have to be Sunday. There's about 30 minutes left in this day at the moment that I'm writing this.

The new episode of OMG Extreme Story Time is available here. This episode is dedicated to Daxflame. Tell me what you think!

My Singing

I decided to record myself singing several songs I've been working on lately. I did it simply for the reason that I felt like doing it. I'm always open to opinions, so tell me what you think! You can listen here.

Money, Work, and YouTube.

I put up a new video here. In it, I discuss several things. OMG Extreme Story Time episode 3 is coming very soon. Although I have more e-mails than I can possibly read in the next episode, I'll try to get more than two read.

In the video, I also discuss my living arrangement, the fact that I like girls, and my love for Wild Cherry Pepsi! I recommend my readers take a look at the video.

As for my day today, I spent several hours working at my dad's house. I was getting old dirt out from the cracks in the floor. My hand is a little worn out because of it, but there's much worse things I could have done, so I'm not complaining. I was going to put some money in the bank this morning, but then I realized that since my federal and state tax returns will automatically be put into my account, I would be penalized if I put more money in. So instead, I'm thinking I'll simply open a Certificate of Deposit (which is probably a better idea anyway).

Outside Work and an Interesting Video

I've been moving old Harley-Davidson parts out of my mom's basement for a while, and I'm happy to have finally finished that! But now that the parts have been moved, I have another job to do. I don't know if I'm going to enjoy it at all or not, but I will be painting my grandfather's fence. He has a good bit of land, so there's a lot of fence. It'll keep me busy though, so I'm happy about that. I also like the fact that I'll be working outside, because sometimes I feel I just don't get out as much as I really need to. I'm usually doing work inside somewhere.

Oh, and a guy who goes by the name "Kaceyr1" has posted two videos about me. Here's the latest one he did (I have to warn you, it uses strong language). You can tell this guy loves my videos! I think he should subscribe to them, what do you all think? Maybe he should join the Damian Grove fan club (but I would have to actually start one first)! This is fun stuff.

My Biggest Fan?

I have been getting a lot of e-mail because of my videos on YouTube. It's the OMG Extreme Story Time series that has sparked an interest from people all around YouTube, and I've gotten a boost in subscribers over the past few days.

Christian Lane is probably my biggest fan. She's the coolest kid in the whole world! I'm glad she has taken a strong interest in my series on YouTube, and I ask her to continue to check back for new videos. Much love to you Christian!

Today in my band class, we began "Johnny B Good". For a change, I sort of felt like I had control over the music. I'm much more knowledgeable with rock & roll and swing, so I knew exactly what to put into the song when I played it. The other horn players followed me.

I asked my instructor if he'd be willing to have a saxophone solo in the song, and he gave me the okay for it. So I played a solo and people seemed to really like it. It felt good to get that recognition, because I usually stand back and stay pretty quiet. I don't like to step on anyone's feet or anything like that, but I wanted to shine just on one song for a change.

Oh and I think I have a fan of my videos on YouTube! He gave me this video response to a video I did for the YouTube super star Daxflame. He sounds like he really enjoys my videos don't you think?! The way I see it is any publicity is good publicity. If someone took the time to make a video response, I'm doing something right because that means I'm getting stronger reactions out of people.
