Soon to be the Biggest Ever YouTube Channel, T-Series May Also Be About to Reshape Global Culture

leave a comment »

India is a problematic market for streaming monetization. It has 1.4 billion consumers but just 330 million of those have smartphones. There were 215 million free streaming users in 2018 but just 1 million paid subscribers despite leading indigenous players like Hungama and Saavn having been in market for years.

pewdiepie tseries

Some time over the next month or so a YouTube landmark will be passed: T-Series will pass PewDiePie as the most subscribed YouTube channel on the planet. As of time of writing T-Series had 75.4 million subscribers compared to PewDiePie’s 76.4 million. (PewDiePie’s lead was narrower but he has mobilised his fan base to delay the inevitable.) But do not mistake this milestone to be a narrow measure of the shifting sands of the YouTube economy. Indeed, it tells us more about the future of streaming as a whole (both music and video) than it does the current status of sweary Swedish gamers.

For those of you who somehow do not yet know who T-Seriesis, it is a leading Indian music label and movie studio – it in fact claims to be ‘the biggest – that is the world’s largest YouTube music channel and before long it will likely be able to drop…

On Tuesday’s Late Show, Stephen Colbert had a field day reading hilarious tweets by journalist Jared Yates Sexton who voiced his severe disappointment about Donald Trump Jr.’s damning mails regarding the Trump-Russia meeting:

I…worked on this story for a year…and…he just…he tweeted it out.


Here is a collection of Sexton’s tweets after Trump Jr.’s providing ’smoking gun‘ evidence against himself:

Buffy goes to Bollywood: „So, how does the water buffalo fit in again?“

with one comment

„Buffy the Vampire Slayer“ turned 20 this March – and, revisiting the first two seasons, I think it has aged quite nicely.

I just ran across a funny exchange in the „Reptile Boy“ episode (S02E05), featuring Buffy (Sarah Michelle Gellar), Willow (Alyson Hannigan) and Xander (Nicholas Brendon) watching a Bollywood song & dance scene together:

Xander: Is she dying?
Buffy: I think she’s singing.
Xander: To a telephone, in Hindi. Now, that’s entertainment. – Why is she singing?
Willow: She’s sad because her lover gave her 12 gold coins. But then the wizard cut open a bag of salt and now the dancing minions have nowhere to put their big maple fish thing.
Xander: Uh-huh. – Why is she singing?
Buffy: Her lover? I thought that was her chiropractor.
Willow: Because of that thing he did with her feet? – No, that was personal.
Xander: And we thought just because we didn’t have any money or any place to go, this’d be a lacklustre evening.
Willow: I know, we could go to the Bronze, sneak in our own tea bags and ask for hot water.
Xander: Hop off the outlaw train before you land us in jail.
Buffy: I, for one, am giddy and up. There’s a kinda hush all over Sunnydale. No demons or vampires to slay. I’m here with my friends. – So, how does the water buffalo fit in again?

Video-Download-Tipp: Rolling Stones auf Kuba („Havana Moon“)

Wie ich in meinem Beitrag über den 3sat-„Pop around the clock“-Tag am 31.12.2016 schrieb, war ich am meisten auf „Havana Moon“ gespannt, den geschichtsträchtigen Auftritt der Rolling Stones auf Kuba. Ich habe ihn gestern gesehen und kann mich den begeisterten Kritikerstimmen anschließen: eine tolle, energiegeladene Show mit gut aufgelegten Musikern, die auch untereinander großen Spaß hatten, und einem unglaublich ekstatischen Publikum. Selbst einer meiner meistgehassten Stones-Songs („I Can’t Get No Satisfaction“) war durch den fetten, vorantreibenden Beat von Charlie Watts erträglich.

Das Video ist noch bis zum 14. Januar 2017 in der 3sat-Mediathek abrufbar. Im o. g. Blog-Beitrag erkläre ich, wie man es mit der kostenlosen MediathekView-Software herunterladen kann.

Post-binge watching: My favorite quotes from Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt’s season 2 (#KimmySchmidt)

with one comment

Netflix sitcom "Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt"Season 2 of „Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt“, the hilarious sitcom created by Tina Fey and her „30 Rock“ show runner Robert Carlock, is at least as strong as its premiere season. I especially enjoyed the addition of Tina Fey’s role as Andrea Bayden, „an alcoholic therapist who is separated by work Andrea at day and drunk Andrea at night“ (Wikipedia). On RottenTomatoes.com, the series still has the same approval rate by critics as in season 1: 95 %. In short: „Not letting up in season two, Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is still odd in the best of ways, wonderfully building on its unique comedy stylings and brilliantly funny cast.“

Here is a selection of my favorite quotes:

Kimmy Schmidt (Ellie Kemper): I did it for your own good, Xan. Someday you’ll thank me.
Xanthippe Voorhees: Yeah, when pigs fly. – Oh, my God. I sound so lame now! And stupid.
Kimmy: Pigs fly all the time, Xan, or did you think prize pigs walk to international pig competitions?

Kimmy Schmidt: What do I call you now? Mrs. Voorhers?
Jacqueline White (Jane Krakowski): Ms. White. That’s my Sioux family name. It was given to us in the 1920s by a sarcastic census taker.

Jacqueline White: Kimmy, I need your help.
Kimmy Schmidt: Help? That’s what we elves are born to do.
Jacqueline: Oh, you are dressed like an elf. I just assumed it was the trucker pills.

Jacqueline White: Oh, Kimmy, I also need you to call my hotel. My suite is so big, I keep getting lost. Have them send up a guide monkey.

Deirdre Robespierre (Anna Camp, to Jacqueline): I have a 150 IQ, but I spent all morning picking out dog stationery. Maybe I’m just tormenting you just to feel alive, but also there is a chance this is real empathy.

Favorite quotes from „House of Cards'“ season 4

with one comment

Season 4 of „House of Cards“ which premiered on Friday (March 4, 2016) was a little slow to get into, but it picked up steam in the second half – starting with episode 7.

My favorite quotes

Episode 1 (chapter 40)

Francis Underwood: Claire is the First Lady of the United States, and you still think she made the wrong choice.
Elizabeth Hale (Claire’s mother): Reduced to tabloid gossip? She might as well be living in that trailer park you come from.
Francis: Well, it was a peach farm. But you’re right, I am still white trash. I just happen to be white trash that lives in the White House.
