Who wants to be YouTube subscriber #685?


As any fool can plainly see, I'm currently at 684, over 2/3 of the way to my goal of 1,000.

A couple years ago YouTube moved the goalposts such that only peeps with ≥1,000 subscribers can livestream on mobile.

Losers and bottom feeders like me are relegated to livestreaming from home using a computer.

I mean, I know you love Gray Cat videos but it occurs to me there may be a relationship between the preponderance of videos featuring her and my ever so slowly increasing subscriber count.


But I digress.

After YouTube dropped its restrictive new policy on my head, I spent a couple days being annoyed by this added requirement before deciding to hire a Crack Video Team©® whose sole reason for being was to get me to 1,000 subscribers.

After five years, they've succeeded in taking it from 400 to 684.

At this rate I'll hit 1,000 in 2026 or so.

Thus, this post, not asking for donations or subscription fees or anything but the 5 seconds it takes to click here.

There, that wasn't so bad, was it?

The rest of you, I hope you lose sleep over not subscribing.

Why must you live video from the road, you're not Walter Cronkite, record and post it when you get home.
Or doesn't that Jobs crap have that capability.
