VIDEO: Things Gamers Are Tired of Hearing

August 30, 20150 Comments

 

Yes, I am starting a Gaming Channel! If you’ve been following me on Twitter then you know this has been in the works for a while. You can subscribe now, but expect the channel to launch near November 2015 :)

In the meantime,  I thought it would be a great video to account all of the foolishness gamers have heard. Hence, Things Gamers Are Tired of Hearing was born. My sister could’ve easily replaced me for my role as she has said and continues to say 97% of the script routinely.

Special thanks to Nick, Yasheera, Preacher, and Jon for letting me berate them!

What did I miss?

VIDEO: Not About That Life 17

August 24, 20152 Comments

 

After posting my most successful video of all time on Facebook, I thought it was only appropriate to talk about the experience in Not About That Life 17! Posting that video brought about so many weird interactions, including, but not limited to: weird messages on Facebook, many loving comments, a few hateful comments, and some interesting opportunities.

That video also helped shaped my content creation strategy for the future. Forget everything I’ve said up to this point. Look for shorter videos that more people can relate to. The idea now is try to create a viral video, then follow it up with a engaging video like Not About That Life, or Talking to Myself that incorporates viewers.

And for everyone continuously asking, Stuff Fans Say will return soon :)

VIDEO: What the Friend Zone Sounds Like

August 16, 20152 Comments

 

The friend zone can be a cruel mistress. I thought it was only appropriate to compile a list of the most heinous quotes responsible for the depression of so many guys out there. And while I do agree girls can also be friendzoned, I find it a much rarer occurence.

To be honest though, if you haven’t heard any of these quotes, are you really trying? Quick shoutout to Tiffany, Jazmin, Keily, and Alysha for lowering my self-esteem repeatedly.

Have you or someone you love been affected by the friend zone? Is this what the friend zone sounds like? What quotes did I miss? Leave a comment below!

VIDEO: Ghetto Vocab – SlimThick, Slay, No Flex Zone

August 10, 20150 Comments

 

Episode 5 of Ghetto Vocab is here and you may recognize a familiar face! Before he left for LA, Swoozie was gracious enough to shoot a couple episode of Ghetto Vocab with me.

The overall goal is to get other personalities to appear from time to time, giving the show more legitimacy and broader appeal, similar to what the Fine Bros do with their React series.

If you’re wondering why Arielle and Jon didn’t talk that much…it’s because I messed up their audio :/ My bad guys!

Which words should be on the next episode? Leave a comment below.

VIDEO: Not About That Life 16

August 3, 20153 Comments

 

This is not what I wanted to post today. This was my second backup choice. Originally, I wanted to post a Talking to Myself. However, I need to get better questions from people on Snapchat so I can write the script.

Then I thought, “hey Scooter, why don’t you release a Ghetto Vocab episode”, after which I proceeded to get completely dominated by audio issues while editing that.

So here we are.

I realized I hadn’t made a Not About That Life in a couple of months, there’s all this Drake and Meek Mill drama going on, and Ronda Rousey did just dominate another victim in the octagon. Perfect time for a Not About That Life episode!

Let me know which series you guys are feeling the most and I’ll try and churn them out. And expect a DAHECK episode coming real soon :) like before next Sunday soon.

VIDEO: Insane Football Catch – #DAHECK

July 27, 20150 Comments

 

DAHECK has returned from it’s three year hiatus! Originally, I stopped creating this series because I kept running into issues with my videos being claimed by outside companies. This was all despite the fact the show is the quintessential definition of Fair Use.

I fully expect to run into similar issues once again, but yolo. Also, I have a good relationship with my partner manager at YouTube who can help me wade through these troubled waters.

I want to make this series every Sunday and additional content on weekdays as I complete it. What do you guys think?

What are you voting for this week?

VIDEO: Talking to Myself – Online Dating

July 20, 201513 Comments

 

Talking to Myself returns with a vengeance. In this episode, Da’Quann and Scootera argue as Lay-Lay is reminded of a dark experience.

I think Talking to Myself deserves to be made at least once every other week. It’s one of my few series that has fan engagement, while still highlighting my ability to act. It also requires zero assistance from anyone else to create, which is a huge factor when making videos.

What do you think? Is twice a month good enough?

What should we talk about on the next episode?

VIDEO: Dear Diary – I Went to Sweden

June 11, 20152 Comments

 

Never in my life did I imagine making YouTube videos would take me all the way to Sweden. But, it did. And it was amazing. The whole trip was an experience that I will never forget, highlighted by the fact that I was racing a 3-d version of my head, which is now chilling in my house.

Sweden was very cold though and I definitely did not pack properly. For some reason, I assume everywhere should be as warm as Orlando, Florida. It wasn’t.

I would like to personally thank Urban Ears and everyone who helped put this together. Urbanears could have easily picked YouTubers to make video reviews about their product, which many companies do. Instead, they had us race 3-d replicas of our heads and provided us with lifelong memories.

Still can’t believe I went to Sweden. Let me know if you guys have any questions about the trip!

Did any of you guys win a headset?

VIDEO: Dear Diary – Big News

So Urban Ears contacted me about creating a video for their new campaign #RadioHeads. Once I heard the concept I was immediately in. The concept alone is amazing, coupled with the fact I get a free trip to Sweden? Could I really ask for anything more.

I’ve never been to Sweden, although I have visited Europe before. Literally no clue what to expect. I didn’t even check the weather cause no matter what happens I’m still wearing my cutoffs.

Have you been to Sweden? Which places should I visit?

VIDEO: Ghetto Vocab – Jit, Murk, Thirsty

April 29, 20150 Comments

 

This was by far the most tedious Ghetto Vocab video I have ever edited in my lifetime. Granted, I’ve only done four. That’s not the point. The point is, it took twice as long as all the other ones.

Why, you may ask? The audio. I got dominated recording this. The secondary audio recorder malfunctioned on almost everyone, which is why my mom only has about one line. Well, exactly one line. Shoutout to my mother for being a good sport about it.

On the positive side, at least it’s finished and I can move on with my life now. Plus, now I know my way around Adobe Audition now…after watching countless tutorials on how to improve audio. Glass half-full.

Which words should be on the next episode? Leave a comment below.
