I love Youtube. I think it is the media of the future. It has opened so many new things to me that I would otherwise never have access to. Things that are interesting, inspiring, just plain weird.
For this quick e-swap, you will email your partners with at least 10 links to your favorite Youtube videos. The purpose of this swap is to introduce your partners to new, interesting and creatively inspiring things, so please read your their profiles and try not to send things that they will already be familiar with. Do not send things that are really famous: no Disney, hugely successful movies, popular MTV stuff, you get the idea. Also, do not send something that will offend your partner.

Your list should include:

1) Two performances of some sort: dance, music, acrobatics, etc.

2) Two scenes from movies or television shows. (Not a montage of images set to music)

3) One animated video: a short cartoon, a clip from a longer work.

4) A great Music video that is interesting both musically and visually (not just someone standing and singing).

5) Something funny.

That makes a total of 7. The other three are up to you - you can add a personal vlog (your own or someone else), more of music videos or scenes from movies or anything else you can think of to make the total of 10. For every link please write why you find it interesting as well as any other information you want to share (is there an interesting story behind it? Where did you come upon it?)

Award hearts according to how much thought you see has been put into this swap - did your partner really make an effort to send you an interesting and inspiring compilation of videos?

This swap is open to everyone with a filled out profile and no recent no-sends. No religious themed videos please.

Let's have fun with this swap!
