Youtube hero, we salute you!

I usually listen to new music on Youtube: a few days ago I found this video:

And I fell in love with this guy. Who is he? Why nobody knows about him?

Why so few news about an obviously skilled, 13-million-views guy?

Eventually I found some info about him on Quora – thanks, Quora! I still don’t know whether you’re useful or not, just keep rocking.

Besides, I googled the email address on his Youtube profile and I found that. Take care, mr. takesomecrime.

The man’s guide to… love?!

The man’s guide to love is a social experiment.

Here’s what they say about this project:

“What’s the one piece of advice you’d give to other men on the subject of love?”  It started with one question.  So far we’ve collected a thousand answers. For the last few months, we’ve been traveling around the country asking men of all ages, all backgrounds, that simple question. (…) But what has been most incredible is actually engaging in a completely candid dialogue about a subject that men rarely talk about: love.  How to find it, how to keep it, how to avoid it — whatever a man wants to say, we listen.

According to someone, content is king. Moreover, UGC is king as well. Let’s omit business considerations – here we have real people from all over the US. They meet a complete unknown with a camera and start talking about their advice to other men about love.
Someone is witty, someone’s fun, someone is boring, but everyone can share some wisdom with the world.

More wisdom after the jump!

Get your music fast and easy

How many times the User Generated Content has to deal with copyright issues related to music?

Holiday slideshows, promos, sketches and personal videos of any kind can’t feature your last favourite song unless you go through some music licensing.

Here’s an interesting way to keep it simple: FriendlyMusic offers free music, music on a budget and great advices.

About them:

Friendly Music, a new website by Rumblefish Inc., is a product of the explosive mix generated by seasoned software geeks and haggard music licensing professionals. We challenged one another to reduce the inefficiencies of the music licensing business as it related to the most pervasive new media trend: User Generated Content. To us, it did not make sense for music licensing to take longer and generate more headaches than the creative production itself. So, we joined our powers to create a service called Friendly Music- a website that hosts a comprehensive catalog of copyright-cleared songs, providing music to create the perfect soundtrack for User Generated Content like online videos, photos and slideshows.
