Did I hallucinate this award/charity show phenomenon or did it exist?

I somehow believe there was a THING going on in the 1990s/2000s that involved all kinds of pop stars and presenters and performances that were deliberately intended to be edited into one continuous stream that would fit together (going forward and backward, too). [more inside]

What's in a name? ...Quite a lot, actually.

I am creating a YouTube channel and a couple of associated social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr). I figured I'd have come up with a name by the time I finished editing my first video.

What do you subscribe to on youtube?

Youtube has always struck me as kind of a waste land, geared towards 14-year-olds, but I've gotten interested in a particular vlogger and watch the channel as a sort of seven-minute daily dose of reality tv. So now I'm curious--what do you watch on youtube on a recurring basis that is interesting and intelligent?

Beginning skater tips!

My 8-year-old son received a (much-asked-for) skateboard for his birthday a few weeks ago. Yay! But neither his father nor I have ever skateboarded, nor do we know anyone who does/did. YouTube offers approximately 1 billion skateboarding videos...steer me toward age-appropriate videos/creators he could watch to learn the basics over the winter and be ready in the spring. Also any other resources would be appreciated!

Making Money Off YouTube Legally

There are a few YouTube channels that I watch where the posters' full-time jobs are via YouTube/Twitch. I know you can monetize your channel/partner with YouTube, but you must own all the content--every last piece of it. The details of monetizing even state that you cannot monetize videos of yourself playing video games (unless you wrote the game yourself or have permission to do so). So, how are these people making a living off YouTube using content that clearly isn't their own? [more inside]

Will installing Android on a cheap Fire tablet make Youtube work better?

I got one of those $50 FireOS tablets, and it works okay... EXCEPT for Youtube videos. Sometimes it's okay, but most of the time it just hangs without playing a Youtube video. I assume this spotty performance is because it's not using an official Google-YouTube app? Anyone else have this problem? If I try to put Android on it, will YouTube actually work any better? (I don't want to brick this thing if it wouldn't help anyway.)

Your favorite scenes of waltzing in movies

I saw Crimson Peak over the weekend, and, separately, I've had the Sleeping Beauty waltz in my head all morning. I'm in a waltzy mood, and want to watch youtube clips of beautiful, cinematic, sweep-you-off-your-feet waltzes from the movies. What are your favorites?

My first reaction was "Oh, HELLS to the no..."

My stepson (12.75 years old, tall, sensitive, excelling in his 7th-grade computer classes) asked if he could set up a YouTube channel to post gameplay and commentary type stuff. He currently spends most of his screen time watching that sort of thing and playing along (various, mostly iOS games). I'm only vaguely aware of the phenomenon, being An Old, and my initial thought was "I do not want to let this kid be exposed to YouTube commenters." [more inside]

Avoiding running into misogyny in Let's Plays

I'm looking for Let's Players/Streamers on YouTube who aren't assholes to women. Are there any good recommendations for who I might want to follow?
