Yesterday was a memorable day for Discjunkie TV as I've just hit 1000 subscribers over on youtube. To be honest I did always think that there would be a lot of people who would enjoy these videos but at the same time it's very bizarre to consider the fact that there are so many people who care about what I do. I mean I know there's not actually 1000 people watching (a lot of the subs are obviously old accounts, deleted profiles and such) but never the less at some point they DID subscribe, and in conclusion there are atleast 1000 people whom I've been able to attract to the channel at some point.
I don't know. It makes you think. Sort of.
Furthermore I've always thaught that youtube is a great place. The interaction and appreciation that I get for the channel alone is such a big part of what drives me to keep doing what I do. It's a great way to find new friends and connect with people who I would have never even meet otherwise.
Also in the news today: I've actually got a couple of gifts coming into the collection! :D YEEEEAAAAY!!! That's right, people have suddenly started sending me stuff to show their support for the project. I mean it's not like people are begging me to unbox their stuff but there are a couple of folks out there who have actually contacted me to say that they have something they want to add to collection. :)
With this said, I am obviously planning to do some more unboxing videos when these things start to arrive. I'm actually very excited about this, even more so than about some of my other recent purchases. I mean the surprise-element of getting a gift this way is so much fun that I can barely keep contain myself. Just imagine - someone likes my videos so much that they actually want to give me free shit (!)... or maybe they just want to score some new subscribers from a shout out and leach off of my popularity ;) Nah, just kidding, I can tell that the people who've contacted me about these things are just really friendly people who want to give something back for what I've given them by keeping this project going.
So, I've decided that ANYONE on the tube who sends me something - regardless of whether it's a gift or a trade or something they helped me buy - EVERYONE deserves an unboxing video (!). Period. Back in the old days I havn't really done unboxings as it goes without saying that it's felt a bit pointless. I mean my channel is all about doing reviews anyway so I tend to end up doing two videos showing the same object that way. But hey, people really seem to like unboxings and capturing my own surprise on camera is definitely worth the extra video. Plus, I figure I can always do a quick unboxing video to show my appreciation and give a big thanks and then I can do a separate in depth review of the object the old fashioned way. :)
But anyway, before I go I wish to give a big THANK YOU to EVERYONE who supports this project. YOU are what makes it all worth while!
(well, YOU and all the cool stuff I buy)
