After feedback from my most frequent readers (family members, bar patrons and hobos with T1 connections) I have made several changes to the way the automatic stream of YouTube.com videos stream to The Peter Files Blog of Comedy.
Before changing the content stream formula, I started by editing my blog template to move the video window to after title and the text in each post to make it easier for subscribers and regular readers to skip the videos and get right into the original content of the blog.
I then went to YouTube.com and changed the key words that triggered the videos streamed here from a list of random comedy key words to a list of comedy celebrities that I knew had content on YouTube.
Oddly this has resulted in an almost unanimous stream of Obama Girl - Amber Lee Ettinger videos, despite her presence near the end of the list. (see below) Perhaps it is the huge interest in the election, or her own huge popularity, but I find it odd that call for Obama girl videos is eclipsing the likes of Robin Williams, Billy Crystal and the others on the list. While I certainly don't mind all the cute videos, all the political videos was not what I had in mind for this spot, and I wanted to mention that and thought I would let you know that I am trying to fix this.Here's my original source list:
"Robin Williams" "Danny Divito" "Bob Newhart" "Billy Crystal" "Dick Van Dyke" "Mark Twain" "David Letterman" "Jay Leno" "Rob Reiner" "Diet Coke and Mentos" "Hayden" "Christina Applegate" "Cheerleaders" "Obama Girl" "Buffy and Dawn" "most viewed comedy ever"
I'm obvioulsy going to have to edit this list some how! Check the videos later to see how/if I suceeded.
Everybody laughs at kumquats! Why is that?
