Interview with You Tube’s Swoozie

Local You Tube vlogger Adande Thorne aka ( Swoozie ) hits 2 million subscribers.

Swoozie resides in Orlando, FL, which is where he started his profession gaming career in CGS (Championship Gaming Series North American League) where they paid him to fly around the county and play videogames to compete for $10, 000. At that time he was still working for the “Hard Rock Café”, and people kept coming up to him asking all these questions on how his job works with CGS. To resolve this problem Swoozie decided to make a You Tube channel to tell people what he has been up in his life.

Swoozie had no idea that his channel would blow up this big from starting with only 55 subscribers his first year on You Tube to now having his own panel’s at “Playlist Live” in Orlando, FL. In an interview with Swoozie at Playlist Live he has given some tips on how to create a successful You Tube channel. ImageOne would have to create a video that stands out from the rest, something no one’s has ever seen before. Another important thing when it comes to making a You Tube video is have a colorful thumb nail, having that really catches the viewer’s eyes towards clicking that video. Video editing is just as important as developing content, having the right editing software helps the video develop into a master piece. Swoozie edits on “Final Cut Express” which is $199, if committed one could make a successful career with a You Tube channel.

The next event Swoozie is going to attend is Evo which is a gaming competition held in Las Vegas. The game he’ll be playing there is “Killer Instinct”, a fighting game on the Xbox One. In an interview with Swoozie he was ask on what gaming console he preferred he said “I mean the thing is, I’m a gamer. So a lot of people now like to segregate the whole thing, the thing is were all gamers, and it doesn’t matter if we play on Xbox, PlayStation, Wii, PC, were all on the same team”. Strong words from a You Tube vlogger can go a long way, and this hate that gamers have with each other is just plain dumb.

Swoozie started one of the first let’s play channels called “Press Start” with You Tube vlogger Michelle Phan. That helped his personal channel get a lot of traffic. Adande never thought that his little You Tube channel could turn into this huge media outlet. Now he is making a living doing what he loves, and that is whatever he wants it to be. One day he could be telling a story about his past than post it on You Tube, or another day he could be playing video games for money. It just goes to show with You Tube anyone could make a living doing anything they want with a loyal subscriber base.

You Tube Commentators

You Tube commentators are changing the world in my opinion. You Tube commentators
are mostly people that play video games on You Tube, and talk over it. When it
comes down to it people just want to feel good, and I believe that commentators
bring that to the table. I listen to so many interviews with commentator, and
the fans are nothing but nice to them. Everybody always says the same thing
about them, and that is that commentators make them feel good. At the end of
the day that is really all that matters if it makes people’s day better. I always
wanted to be one, but the equipment is just too much money, and I do not know if I
had the time. The most subscribed person on You Tube is a video game commentator,
his channel’s name is “PewDiePie”. That channel is not really my taste, but that’s
not the point. The point is that this is a new form of entertainment that
people can enjoy, and also a place that people pick for their likeness. Since
its You Tube they can always watch what they want. Maybe next year I will make
a game channel I think it would be pretty fun.

“Too Far Gone”

Today was the mid-season finally for the “Walking Dead” the episode “Too Far Gone”. I feel very grateful to live in a time were TV shows like this could exist. I had watch this episode in aw because it was just that amazing. I feel like this is the way season three should have ended. In this blog I don’t really want to talk about what happens because I do not want to spoil it for anybody. I will say this episode had tanks, zombies, and a whole lot of fire arms in between what else could you ask for. I’ve notices that this show really gets the audience involved by making everyone attached to the characters. I got to say if you have not watch this show its time to do it now because it is better than ever.

Video Game Money

Video games cost so much money now a days. I got laid off a while ago, and I am not going to be able to get none of the new consoles. I really want the ps4, because it is cheaper. I am holding myself back from buying new games because I want them for the next gen consoles. The only reason I think that cause if I’m playing the games on the old gen in the back of my head I’m going to have this little voices saying that there is a better version out there. I do not like that, so I am going to have to wait. Which that means I have to get a job that also means I will have to save money. I really want to play assassins creed 4, mostly because I like pirates. That will probably be the first game I get for the PS4.

Its a good day to be a GameStop manager

It was announced at the GameStop Expo that all store managers will be getting a PS4 plus seven games on the release date. I think that it is a very smart move for Sony to do this. If customers come in asking question about the new system, they are more likely to have an answer for them now. It is said that all 4,400 GameStop managers are going to get hands on training for the PS4 and Xbox One. That being said I think that it was a good idea on PS4’s part because when you would ask a GameStop employee what console they recommend they will probably lean towards the PS4 because it is something they have, and something they are use to. The seven games that GameStop managers are going to get are Killzon: Shadow Fall, NBA 2K14, Madden NFL 25, FIFA 14, Need for Speed; Rivals, Battlefield 4. The managers are also getting Beyound: Two Souls, but that’s only for the PS3. Now that sounds like a good selection of games, but I can’t say that for all of them, because the only game I would probably get is Battlefield 4. Only because I played battlefield 3, and that game is beautiful on PS3. Its not a for sure thing if the GameStop managers are also going to get a Xbox One, but that is something that Xbox should do just for marketing reasons. Witch I think they probably will because Xbox has been listening to the community on changing the features for the Xbox One and that’s just goes to show they have a open mined. I’ve always seen my self as an Xbox person, but being thin on money I am going to go for the PS4 only because of the price. In my opinion they are both amazing game systems.
