YouTube Goals and Whatnots

As I mentioned in the previous post about the lack of updates on this here site, I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm nearing a major milestone in my YouTube career that I'm quite excited for.  That's right, I'm about to hit 1,000 subscribers.  Now I know to a lot of people that's not much, especially when there's people out there with millions of subs.  To me, this is important because it goes to show that my content is connecting with people.  For whatever reason, more and more people are hopping on the PCC train and I couldn't be happier about it.

I started my channel back on April 3, 2007.  Up until about April of this year, I only had about 350 subs.  In 3 months, my subscriber count has exploded (relatively speaking).  As of right now, I'm at 956.  I attribute this completely to just being more consistent.  I have a regular upload schedule now that I haven't missed in months.  I try my hardest to reply to every comment left on my videos.  I'm sure there's been a few that I may have missed, but I really do try.  I'll admit, it's getting a bit harder with more and more folks leaving comments.  However, that's a great problem to have.  

I think I've found a nice balance between the biggest topic on my channel (Godzilla) and smaller topics.  My favorite thing is seeing the folks that I know are here for the Godzilla videos commenting on the Nostalgia Overload videos or joining in on a Friday the 13th live stream.  The crossover is what I'm aiming for because I know there's other people out there like me that are into a wide array of topics.  It's nice to finally be connecting with them.  I put a lot of time and effort into my videos and live streams and I hope it shows.  

My ultimate goal with YouTube is what every small time content creator is seeking.  I'd like to make a sustainable income doing what I love.  That's making videos.  I don't care about becoming YouTube famous or anything like that.  I'd just like to be able to devote more time to doing these things that bring me joy.  It's great to know that on some small level, it's connecting with other people too.  So yeah, you can say I'm in it for the money.  I won't disagree.  However I will point out that I've been doing videos for a long time without seeing any real benefit other than the pride I feel for having created something out of nothing.  With more time, there's no telling how many of these crazy ideas I can pull off.  And trust me, I've got a million crazy ideas that I'd love to attempt.  

For those that already subscribe to my channel over on YouTube, I just want to say a very heartfelt THANK YOU.  You guys have given me inspiration and helped me through some pretty dark times without even knowing it.  That's something I'll always remember and I'll always cherish.  So, thanks!  For those who haven't hopped on board the PCC train, what are you waiting for?  Hook a brotha up!

What is the most ICONIC Godzilla To YOU?

I need the community's help on this one.  I'm trying to figure out which version of Godzilla is the definitive version.  As fans, we've all jumped on board during different eras.  To some, the '54 version may be the iconic image that immediately springs to mind when you hear the name Godzilla.  To others, it could be one from the 80's or 90's.  It could also be one of the American versions.  I'm trying to find out which variation is the definitive version that fans think of when thinking of Godzilla.  I hope this makes sense!  
To answer this question, I've created a poll featuring every Godzilla movie (as well as an add your own spot).  Simply pick the movie that contains your ideal mental image of Godzilla.  Don't just pick your favorite movie.  Pick which movie contains that version of Godzilla that's ideal to YOU!  I'll leave the poll up for a week and when all results are tallied, we'll hopefully have an idea of what pops into people…

Alice Cooper / Columbia, SC / 5-13-17

The last time Alice Cooper made a tour stop in Columbia, SC, Jimmy Carter was president, gas was .65 a gallon and Alice was a drunken mess.  Cooper's stop at the Carolina Coliseum on June 29, 1978 was part of his King of the Silver Screen tour promoting his then current album Lace and Whiskey.  Judging by the reaction of the packed crowd that assembled to see him Saturday night, it won't take 39 years to bring his show back to town.

King Kong (1933) Movie Review

With Kong: Skull Island's release this week, it's time to take a look back at the original film that started the long tradition of giant monsters.  1933's King Kong revolutionized the way that special effects were used in film.  Never before had the world seen a movie of this scale and magnitude.  Directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack with special effects by Willis O'Brian, King Kong is simply one of the most important films of all time.
