You know those times when Facebook changes and people go all “WTF is wrong with Facebook?” because they usually make atrocious changes that we end up getting accustomed to. I don’t think I can say the same with YouTube (or Google, for that matter).

I kinda like the YouTube facelift that goes alongside the facelift that Google got its Reader, Mail and other stuff. However, one think does bother me…

You can’t eliminate stuff from your subscription timeline! Remember there used to be an ‘x’ with each video, so you could make it go away. Well, I used that a lot to keep up with what I already watch or things I wasn’t interested in. Then, when things were cleared, you could “load more” and move on.

Now? Now I have to load more and more, and I get a subscription timeline of tons of videos. I makes it almost impossible to keep up, because you can also see the favorite/add to playlist/etc activity!

Did you ever noticed that “as seen in” feature some YouTube video uploads have?

I always wondered how to get a YAM Magazine one [which eventually did happen], so I’m wondering how this works. I suppose that YouTube picks up a pingback because it’s Google… and everything is interconnected now.

Anyway, you can subscribe to this blog’s YouTube thingy thing!

Here I thought that OK Go couldn’t impress me any longer.

Of course this takes forever to load, and I’m always scared it might crash my computer being so old and outdated xD but I’ve seen it a few couple times  already. I keep hitting replay. LOL

Check it out~ All Is Not Lost.

This is a strong contender for Breakthrough of 2011 xD – on a side note, WTF is up with this year’s VMA not having the Breakthrough category? I thought that was sooooooooo sad~ It’s like… I have nothing to look forward!

Who here is using Google+?

My minimalist side appreciates that it’s all white. I actually don’t need to focus on anything else but the content.

The CONTENT!

The Good

I love that the preview image of YouTube is so big (it seems to post 4:3 thumbnails for Vimeo), and if the thumbnail doesn’t load — you can hit “retry” and it tries to load it again.

If you make a typo, you can hit “edit” like in the screencap. You can also choose which functions to have – to disable re-sharing or comments. You also don’t need to “tag” people, you just decide with which Circles you want to share the info.

This is a… let’s call it a long footnote on Japan Cinema’s guide of Do’s and Dont’s of a Good Movie Blog.

I’ve blogged… for a while. My first blog was launched in 2004… it’s been a few years. The blogging has escalated into something I would like to do for a living, but I still love to have a space where I can just, you know, blog for my own sake.

While Japan Cinema’s guide is an awesome start-up tool to make it more pro, it’s obvious many bloggers feel blogging is just their own medium to vent. If you happen to find someone that shares your same point of view, the better! But it’s not a necessity.

I wanted to share a few tips to make a good (movie) blog. I know I haven’t been the best blogger for a while, but at the high of my activities here, I had months with an average of 2, 3 or 4 posts a day… whether I had comments or not. LOL
