YouTube's 'partner earnings' page states "the more views you get, the more money you'll make" from advertising revenues. Hasn't the music industry therefore committed fraud?

Unfortunatly. More than that number of people are going to watch the videos now to see the view counts.

To be honest I'm more into modern... uhh whats the name for it? Orchestra? Theme music?
Vendetta was an amazing album.

As for classical, meh its okay, I really like metal/rock classical fusion though.

I applaud any band that can add Classical into Rock music. Hell, I can applaud any modern band who uses traditional instruments (AC/DC and bagpipes, for example). There needs to be more of that.
User avatar #106 to #93 - phatsno (12/29/2012) [-]
Which era of classical are you into?
User avatar #200 to #106 - snaresinger (12/29/2012) [-]
Well, Baroque is some of the most musically interesting stuff around, but old choral motets (Tomas Luis de Victoria) are ear candy. But I mostly listen to modern stuff (Whitacre, Lauridsen). I do listen to both choral and instrumental music, but being a choral major, I tend to study voice stuff more.

Shoot him then take his face and upload his next 3 videos pretending to be him while wearing his face.

I ******* hate RWJ, I don't think I've ever actually watch smosh, and nigahiga is pretty damn funny.
There. My opinions. Deal the **** with it.

those are good opinions... and trust me i am a master on peoples opinions on the internet

You should watch Smosh. Some of their stuff is just borderline retarded but most of it is pretty funny.
#36 to #31 - murrey (12/29/2012) [-]
I hate rwj too but he's #1 for a reason. Smosh is good. nigahiga is great

RWJ is really, REALLY forcing his 'comedy'. In like every episode he finds some way to just incorporate how short he is, or that he watches gay midget porn just for awkward laughs.
#161 to #39 - hurrdurka (12/29/2012) [-]
Why can't we all kill him? All chip in like 20$ on an assassin?

millions?

I dunno how you can say Ray William Johnson is stupid and untalented... I mean, it's clear you don't like him, and that's fine. But the dude has millions of subscribers and views, so he's clearly doing something right. I find it offensive and unfair to basically say he only does crap when he has millions of people who watch him because they like what he does.

Millions ALSO watch and like Fred. Think about that. A bunch of idiotic fans doesn't mean they're talented.

smosh and RWJ vids are kind of the same, both doing the same stupid ****
User avatar #114 to #39 - keiishiyama (12/29/2012) [-]
RWJ hasn't made a cent off of an original, funny idea. Nigahiga is the funniest YouTuber I watch (barring the Creatures and Derp Crew who collectively outdo everyone else). It takes some creativity to imagine the big, bouncing, inflatable green ball.

All opinions.
User avatar #108 to #39 - pokemonstheshiz (12/29/2012) [-]
I never understood how RWJ was even popular. I haven't met a single person who watched him.
