yup ... instant declaration that you're an amateur.  "Hey guys" (or "What's up, YouTube") followed by "I thought I'd make a video about..."

Honestly, unless you have an opening title sequence, ANYTHING you start a video with is going to sound tacky.

It can be done. is one of my favorite YouTubers and a great example. He doesn't greet or sign off, he just says what he has to say.

One of my favorites too. And when I'm in one of those "History Channel" type of moods, I also enjoy Strange Mysteries as well.

Many people say "I have always wanted...." to do something they wanted to do for about a month.


My niece who is in her mid 20s has unknown to any member of the family "always wanted to travel".  She along with her current boyfriend have started traveled adventures. No mater what area is mentioned she says she they have always wanted to go there.

I have always wanted to hear a story like that.  :-D

Unsurprisingly, my st00pid sister does a ton of that.  When the last couple of episodes of Disney In Space came out, she suddenly rewrote her childhood so that she has "always been" a Star Wars fan.

(Funny, the way the rest of us remember it, she said I was a loser because I liked sci fi.)

Try these:

1)  "Figures, you like Star Wars now that it sucks."

2) "Now that Disney owns Star Wars they are gearing their movies to a more child like audience."

Both true and worth saying, but as noted above, she now claims that she has "always been" a Star Wars fan ... which is certainly not true. She slept through ANH (which is fine, because she was two years old and we saw it at a drive-in at night) but by the time RotJ came out she was certain that I was a "loser" for liking that kind of film.

But yeah, if you take the retroactive lying out of the equation, Disney In Space is more her speed.

Two possibilities; The first, she is saying "I always liked that" and by "I always liked that" she means she has liked it since it has become popular or her husband likes it.  The second possibility is she has always liked Star Wars but couldn't admit it because she didn't want to look like a geek/nerd/dweeb in front of her friends.

In either case steal her cookies when Mom isn't looking.

Over use of the phrase "here is what you need to know", here is what you need to know.

 STOP, please fucking STOP.

Better than the "Starship Troopers" movie's "Do you want to know more?"

From most sites it would be better phrased "here's what we want you to think"

That is exactly what I thought they were saying.  That link still works, but the stories change.

Don't worry, on Fecesbook they're getting ready to change it to "prepare to receive your daily programming, citizen"
