I had the great opportunity recently to interview Toronto Musician YouTuber Andrew Huang aka “Songs To Wear Pants To” (you can check out the interview here)
But one of the reasons why I wanted to share my stories on YouTube is mainly to share my inspirations. There’s a lot of creative outlets that give me inspiration. Really great blog posts, often other YouTube videos but also music. Andrew is definitely one of those inspirations.
One of his songs that I loved was 1997. When I heard it I thought of my life back in 1997 and that was the beginning of High School. Since the song takes a nostalgic look at love and possibly love lost, I thought of my own love lost story and that’s what I have to present to you today. The true story of what my life was like in 1997.
At first you only heard Steve on audio podcasts or sometimes on the radio. Well, now the albino comes out from behind the mic and does what he loves to do: Tell you stories!
I love watching YouTube. Ever since I cut the cable cord (not literally but you get the idea ha!), YouTube has become my Television. It’s the one thing I watch everyday, everything from News Channels, Music Channels, Geek Stuff, Vlogging Channels and many more. I just double checked and I am subscribed to almost 100 YouTube Channels. Most of which are releasing content daily! That’s a lot of videos! However, every time I watch something that creatively inspires me, the constant question in my head is “Why can’t I create a show like that?” Not to say I don’t have the ability to do so, but I was always down on myself for not taking my love of performing and editing videos and moving it to the next level.
So today, I am proud to say that after several years of watching Professional YouTube channels and in the grand scheme of my Great Big 2012 Creative Experiment, I have decided to take the plunge into creating a web show of my own!
It’s a writing related show called “Something From The Brain Of Steve Saylor” and every Monday and Wednesday I will be performing short stories, interviewing authors, doing book reviews, maybe even discuss my thoughts on the book and indie self publishing industry.
