Brian:  I was watching a kitten video today on YouTube, Gary.

Gary:  Of course you were watching a kitten video on YouTube. That’s exactly where I watch all of my kitten videos.

Brian:  Isn’t that what YouTube’s good for?

Gary:  Well, it’s also really great for content that’s created by people who are doing things like vlogs and just talking about their life.

Brian:  Like the YouTube celebrities. The people who are really famous for YouTube web series and stuff like that?

Gary:  Yeah. There are people out there making web series based on an entire story arc or something else that’s personal.

Brian:  I guess that’s pretty neat that it’s independently produced.

Gary:  Yeah. There’s such a variety of content on YouTube as well.

Brian:  I just watch kitten videos. And every once in a while a music video. But now I’ll have to check out some of these other things.

Gary:  Yeah, just put some music videos on and let them play. And you can listen to an album or you can go through a variety of songs. It’s really great.

Brian:  I’ll have to look into that more.

Youtube, for sure, a very inspiring, very entertaining website. You pick what is up to your interest and will be amazed how many kind, nice, sharing people will be on your prescribed channels. On Youtube, you can fulfill your dream in getting a new skill in drawing, cooking, dancing and you name it. And it’s not necessarilly to follow a celebrity. I came across very amazing people who keep their vlogs up to date. About cats, I like Sho Ko channel :)

Hi, YouTube How are you? Long time no see.


You all are thinking, what’s a rubbish question he is asking.



Actually what can say about this website I can’t express any about it? The YouTube is vast in searching videos, news, entertainment, films, cartoons, fiction, science etc.
