I feel ya, Art. A friend of mine has suggested many times that I should expand my YT channel from track vids to documenting my WD adventures. I've resisted for many reasons and most of the ones you mention. You hear the pressures of creating content to get paid from some of the more normal channels I follow.

Since we're ranting, here are my misc YT ramblings:
I enjoy WatchJRGo and Sarah-n-Tuned. Good channels for learning lots of useful stuff.

The CarTrek series was interesting at first, but I think their last effort has jumped the shark. They wrecked some decent cars.

Never have, never will understand why someone has to roast tires in a burnout. Maybe because my folks made me buy my tires when I was young and I don't have money to burn now. It just seems imbecile to me but is a staple of many channels and it appears their followers approve.

Hoovie is generally entertaining but he set me off with his last vid. He recently bought 2 pristine Lambos from a collector in Wichita. One was an 89 25th Anniv Countach. In his last vid, he took it out and did snownuts in his cul de sac. He almost slid it into some mailboxes. He was exclaiming when he bought them how lucky he was, then goes out and acts like an idiot. If he took them out, drove them for us, explained how they felt, then great as we'll never get that chance. Acting like a 10 yr old with a special car says you've only got more money than brains. Show some respect. This was 2 days ago and I'm still worked up about it.

Hoovie gets BIG residuals from his views. Someone did an analysis of his hits and the revenue he brings in.

But I agree, he's getting annoying. Same for the VINWiki guy and Tavarish. They take twenty minutes to put a credible sentence together. Alvis is borderline. It seems like they're all desperately searching for new content.

Just sayin'......
