Doug DeMuro

The first YouTube channel I will write about is the first channel I subscribed to, I think.

Doug DeMuro is a writer for Autotrader where he writes about all kinds of cars. But, he is also a very popular YouTuber because of his car reviews in which he gives us a tour of a car’s “quirks and features”, takes it for a test drive, then gives the car a “Doug Score”.

He always does this wearing shorts, sneakers, and usually two layers of T-shirts. He is also quite funny, sometimes quite goofy, but is always entertaining. He gets to drive the most amazing cars, mostly borrowed from local car dealerships, or viewer’s cars. Mostly they are luxury cars, and occasionally hypercars such as the Bugatti Veyron or Porsche 918.

Here is a best bits video that will give you a good idea of what the channel is like…

He now has over 2.5 million subscribers, and is in the top ten of most popular car channels.

Highly recommended for car buffs.

MBMS changes

Due to my severe lack of film watching in recent months, and less purchasing of music, along with my increased reliance on YouTube for instant gratification entertainment, I have decided to add the YouTube category to this blog. I want to blab on about the various YouTube channels I follow, or stop following for whatever reason. Most of the channels I follow are probably of no interest to others, but I like them and need more blog fodder.

I will continue to write about films, music, and books of course. In fact I do have some recent music to blog about, no films though. I will also continue with my Oscars and Grammy Awards posts, in fact I might just do one soon.

To round this post off here is a great photo of The Kirkster…

Kirk in 1955.

Addendum: It just occurred to me that I should add podcasts as well, I have been an avid podcast listener for many years, so I have many I can write about. That, I shall do.
