My Crib 2

February 12, 2011

At the beginning of this year, the only resolution that I gave myself was to try and focus on quality over quantity when it came to my videos. There were definitely moments in 2010 when I felt like, given the schedule I had forced myself onto (trying to upload a video every week or so) I was 1) making videos just for the sake of trying to keep up to quota and 2) uploading videos that I wasn’t always completely happy with – stuff that I knew I could probably have completed to a much higher level had I given myself more time.

A couple of weeks ago, I almost broke my resolution, and ended up shooting a video which was just an update on various things that were going on in my life at the time. To put it simply, I knew I needed to get something up that week in order to earn some cash, and the video had no real purpose other than that. I watched it back, realised how boring, vapid and useless it was, and then deleted it pretty promptly so that I could move onto something new. It was at that point that I also set a new rule for myself: If I was going to make a video, it had to be something that I actually found fun, and that would be fun to watch. It can be too easy to lose sight of why I even make YouTube videos sometimes, which I think is a bit of a common problem for partners who hold YouTube as being both a hobby and a job simultaneously.

There are definitely some people on YouTube who have decided to let the job aspect of their channels overtake the hobby side, and I don’t have a problem with those people at all. Some of them make absolutely brilliant videos, on a schedule that they stick to religiously, MysteryGuitarMan being a great example. There are also people who definitely opt for quantity over quality, and again I have no problem with anyone who wants to do that. Sometimes I really enjoy watching videos that have lower production values, so long as the content/person in the video is engaging. But none of that works for me. I’m not on YouTube to try and pull in eyeballs, I’m on here to try and make stuff that I’m really proud of.

I’d love to be able to make a short film at some point in the near future (something that I’ve already started work on actually, though it’s early days) and then maybe even a feature film after that. To feed that ambition, what I’m trying to do currently is stick with the exact same style of videos that I feel I’ve always made, while also doing my best to use those videos as a training ground for new ideas and techniques. My latest video, My Crib 2, is an example of that. I basically wanted to use the challenge as an excuse to play around with camera lenses, to practice composition, writing a shot list, cool transitions, directing a cameraman (Michael did almost all of the filming for this video) and to have a go at some more advanced rotoscoping (the effect at the start of the video where I come up in front of the titles). It was really fun for me to do, and I feel like I’ve come out with a much better piece of content as a result.

Just to be clear: I don’t mean to imply by any of this that I’m going to be changing my schedule to one video a fortnight or anything like that. I am still going to keep the once-a-week plan at the front of my mind, but I’m also going to allow myself more free time to work harder on a video if I feel like it’s going to benefit it in the long run. I’ll try to provide both quality and quantity when I can, but I’m going to prioritise the former over the latter. I have received a lot of emails from people, especially recently, saying that they’d like me to make videos more often than I do, and all I can really say to that is sorry, really, but that’s just not the kind of YouTuber that I am. I’ve never been like that. In theory, any videos that I do post from now on should be of a better quality, and more worth your time, so I hope that makes up for any noticeable drop in frequency. And as always, thanks for watching :)

  • Anne

    It’s always nice to see your face in a video, so I get your point, but sometimes a vid with nothing much in it is also nice. :D

  • Amanda

    You’re amazing :)

  • Souhire

    Oh Charlie! We’ll always love your videos even if they aren’t very frequent! I personally felt that My Crib 2′s editing skills were wondrous and for that, THANK YOU! (:

  • RaeRae

    “Nericool location” :D

  • Crazycake

    could you please write larger, I could barely read it! :P

  • Kara

    Can’t wait to see a short film from you, however long it takes to make!

  • Amanda Baird

    Sounds like a plan :) All I care about is that you keep making videos because quite frankly they always bring a smile to my face :D kudos btw on uploading “forging an identity” without Alex knowing was very amusing :L

  • emy

    I think you did a great job with the techniques in this video! :)

    And your flat is ridiculous clean. Really.

  • Katie

    I’m really liking the new techniques and the new camera you’re using. I loved your older videos but these are definitely more enjoyable to watch as they look so much more professional. Love you Charlie! :)

  • songsfrompaul

    I sort of have the opposite problem – I’m a bit of a perfectionist when it comes to my music, so this year I’m doing my best to stick to a weekly schedule and publish videos even if I’m not 100% happy with the result. It’s going pretty well so far – I only missed one week in January due to having the flu.

  • Sean Bates

    Keep the great videos coming!
    We love them all, no matter when they come out

  • nour

    i really liked the transitions in this last vid, good job :)

  • Anonymous

    Charlie, I understand that you want quality over quantity and in many ways I totally agree with you, but really, it would be sweet to just watch a few videos during which you just talk about what’s going on in your life. Or rant about something you believe in or something you saw recently. And this has absolutely nothing to do with quantity; we can all wait. But if you just post something really simple, I’m sure no one would mind (even if you post it after a month). All in all, I still respect what you’re trying to do but simple things can be kickass too :)

  • shannon

    charlie, you are amazing. and i’ll never stop watching your videos even if you only post them once a year. =] haha

  • Tiredofdogs

    It gives a new perspective on the video hearing you were looking at different ways and angles to use the camera, taking it from a sort of video lots of people do – a room tour, to something of a higher standard i see

  • Jennifer

    So long as you’re happy with the product, that is what’s important :)

  • Jessie

    I agree with what you said in this post and even if others don’t, they shouldn’t complain because you are still producing quality, entertaining videos. You should keep pursuing this movie idea — your motivation is really inspirational! I hope it all works for you. I will be in London in April which is really exciting to me :) Have a lovely day! xx, Jessie

  • Matthew

    I know from experience how important quality is compared to quality and with this video you show some serious quality. You must make sure you’re happy with what you’re doing and don’t lose sight of what your channel was about.

  • Mihaelabm

    But you have a second channel for not so good videos-charlieissoboredlike.Use it until you do a better vedeo for charlieissocoollike.

  • Guillermina

    Hey, you should make whatever you’re happy with. And this one did look even cooler than usual. :)

  • Emma Claire

    Charlie I think everyone will agree when I say that no apology is needed here. We should all just be glad that you make videos for all of us to enjoy and not ditch us for something completely different…so, thank you!!!

  • Rosa Kremer

    The editing in your last video was amazing, so just keep up the good work^^
    And we (ad least I) will wait for your other videos, so just do what you think you should do!

  • Ashley Marshall

    “It can be too easy to loose sight of why I even make YouTube videos sometimes,”
    It should be ‘lose’ not ‘loose’

  • Emily

    Thank god. I thought you had died or something on the blog

  • Yes

    fair enough

  • Deb Knapp

    Honestly, Charlie, I enjoy watching your videos no matter what format. The videos that you think are “crappy” are entertaining for the rest of us. Don’t get yourself down. You are doing an amazing job, and your viewers will watch anything that you post. :)

  • JustALittleDotty

    Don’t worry, it’s worth it; the transitions/editing in ‘My Crib 2′ was AWESOME.

  • Lexi

    The video was great, you’re so talented !

  • Kirby

    yayy!! im so happy you put up a new video! they always make me smile :)

  • AwesomeDude<3

    Me and my friend… we discovered for a time ago that you started to loose your muchness D:
    And it’s good you discovered it yourself :D <3
    Keep up the good work<3<3

  • Miyapiya3

    You are just so passionate about your videos. I admire you even more now.
    Thank you for making videos :)

  • Grace

    Well, if you’re going for quality over quantity, I think you succeeded w2ith this vid. The cinematography was much better, and I like the different effects you were experimenting with. Keep it up!

  • Josephine

    If you find it hard to come up with ideas then just ask your fans :D
    We have many ideas and many requests that we want you to do^^
    - And then who could be better to know what intertains the viewers than the viewers?? :3

    Maybe you need a small vacation, and I’m sure that your subscribers will understand :3
    – CornerOfMystery :D

  • Shambala92

    I agree with that Charlie.. Quality is always better than quantity. (Almost everywhere, so it does for YouTube). You will become a real director one day. :)))
    For the end, I really like “My crib 2″, not only because it’s funny one also I like the camera. (Sorry for my English, I hope you’ll understand)
    Thank you for making videos! :)

  • Lkoops18

    I really appreciate this message. :D As a person fairly new to the whole Charlieissocoollike fanbase, I felt a little sad that you weren’t posting a new video every so often. Now I understand that if you don’t post a video in a while, it’s because you want us to enjoy your content and you want to enjoy making it for us. <3 You're awesome Charlie

  • JamieUK

    I’ve never worried about the quality of your videos, Charlie. I have subscribed to a lot of people on YouTube (no really, over 100 probably) and every time I see that you’ve posted a new video I genuinely get excited because to me, I honestly think you are the best YouTuber out there. I don’t know if I only think this because I too am English, and am glad to see that someone from my own country is famous, but I’ll always watch your videos! Thanks for entertaining me for the past few years, Charlie. I promise I’ll never stop watching you ^_^

  • Alex Connolly

    Better late than never.

    That’s seems a cold response, but it ain’t meant to be so. I’d be happy with a video a month considering the quality, enjoyment and sheer effort that goes into each one.

    I like that, here, you’re not really making excuse: you’re giving us truth. I don’t think its fair that people often demand videos from working YouTubers: it is not fair. A average person would be annoyed if a person they didn’t know personally suddenly hounded them to do work when the boss hasn’t set a deadline.

    Okay, not a great example, but the notion’s there.

    Best of luck in Film Making. If the ‘Challenge Charlie’ can prove anything, it’s that you usually achieve what you set yourself on doing, no matter how potentially gruelling.

  • Mathilde=)

    Hey Charlie:) for what it’s worth, I love the new effects you do with the camera and the text and stuff:) Don’t ever stop being yourself and doing what you love! You’re reallu good at making fun videos with awesome quality! Thank you:)

  • Karla

    Aw Charlie :)
    It’s true that we miss you a lot when you don’t post stuff, but I (as many others, I suspect/hope) am perfectly aware of the fact that you always try to come up with the best for us! And that is really nice.
    PS: THREE consoles? Woah, such nerds :D Loved your flat.

  • Louise

    I think its fine Charlie. Quality is definitely more important that quantity as my English teacher is always telling me. But to me and I am sure all other subscribers agree, each and every one of your videos is enjoyable to watch (:

  • vicky

    During the last month I was wondering when you were going upload a new video, and I was wasn’t disappointed with it or the blog post.

    I think its really nice that you care so much about the quality of your work, it shows that you really care about how your viewers see you and that you want the quality of your videos to remain excellent (wow, I sound like some sort of critic here).

    If you were posting just to update, it might get boring, and thus loose fans. However, with you it is always fun, interesting and often unexpected which I think is why people love you so much!

  • Francesca Mempin

    *deep siiiiiiiiiigggghhhhh* <3 <3 <3

  • Daryja

    If we get videos as good quality and well thought out as my crib 2 I know I will personally not mind if you don’t post frequently because I know you have put alot of effort, thought and love into what we are seeing. I will know that you are proud of what you put up so I will enjoy it more knowing that what you put up is the best that it could be. :)
    DFTBA Charlie, your videos and especially you are amazing. :)

  • Joana

    It’s really important that you like your own videos, because if you like them then certainly your subscribers will like them too :)

  • Rena :DD

    When you said “this is my bed” i thought, “i want to be in that bed.”

  • Brittany

    I’d much rather quality over quantity. Doing videos you like is the best idea because those are the kind of videos we all fell in love with! Yay for not selling out :)

    Love from Canada!

  • Alymarie

    Sounds cool charlie – those things you’re trying to do are the best part of film (cool transitions, diff lenses), they are are the freakin besttttt – at school my thing was trying to tell a story but through the most obscure angles possible

  • nab

    Loved the video. Passion is an important thing.

  • Fedespury

    I like you Charlie, no matter what kind of videos you do, I even love the ones that you don’t actually like :D but your passion and your determination make me like you even more. Good luck <3

  • 8D_xD

    I really think it is a good plan :)
    The only ones able to make videos based on quantity and quality are wheezywaiter and the vlogbrothers, in my opinion.

  • Edward Hsiao

    A good alternative is to ‘feed’ us fans some videos that you had guest appearances in!It might sound like redirecting your fans to an alternative channel to watch but heck I’m sure you’ll feel a lot better than producing sub-standard videos.

  • Lauren Stevens

    Charlie however bad you think your videos have been, I have to say that each and everyone of them has be worthwhile and a joy to watch, as they are all really entertaining/funny etc. And to be honest, a video a week is more than good enough so you shouldn’t feel pressured into doing anything more than that. :)
    Also i would love to see a film of yours, it would be pretty epic, and you know, if you need anyone to act in it, I’m free to do so for the foreseeable future. :D
    Anyway, its really lovely to see how much you care about your work/hobby and then quality of it. If I were mum I’d be proud of you. but luckily i’m not- as that would be weird, as your older than me. :)
    Keep up the good work!

  • Abb

    “any videos that I do post from now on should be of a better quality, and more worth your time”

    First of all, I think anyone here can agree that your videos are almost always brilliant no matter how pointless they seem because of your great camera presence and generally funniness. I’ve never found that watching any one of your videos was a waste of my time. In fact, they quite often made my day.
    Secondly, I think all that you said here was amazing! It’s always nice to make something you’re proud of. I think all of your viewers would be willing to wait for you to post videos.
    That being said, “My Crib 2″ was an awesome video and the shooting and quality definitely showed. I could tell that you were trying to make it to the best of your ability and fiddle around with new things as well. I definitely think this is the right thing to be doing if you want to make short films or full-length movies. You definitely have the talent. I wish you the best of luck!

  • David Stephen

    I’m glad that you’re making videos as often as you are, you used to have 3 month gaps between them! right now, it’s good. I think the people e-mailing you are new fans of yours just used to the US you tubers who post a video at least once a day on one of their 7 channels.
    I loved your last video, and I often enjoy the humour you bring to them.
    Keep on runnin’ you’ll not regret it.

  • cecilyseed

    I like how honest this blog post is so I now I can appreciate(sp? oh well) the wait between videos. If you’re ever stuck though for videos though, there’s always like a million ideas on Challenge Charlie…(:

  • Peter Miles

    Hi Charlie,
    You must do what is right for you and not to pander to the masses, sure it would be good to see lots of videos but I would rather see one less often knowing that you enjoyed making it and that it was not a chore.
    I hope that your plans work out in all aspects of what you do.

  • Ansley

    If you don’t want to make a video, why don’t you update us w/ the little things here? I love reading your blog.

  • Harri

    Quality is great, your videos are interesting and really clevery put together. but i just like the sound of your voice and the fact your pretty hot. so i prefere quantity… jst saying :D

  • Jennifer Clark

    I’ve found that when people release things constantly it can become a chore to follow them. Like Tom constantly making EPs. (Just kidding. There’s a good chance I would buy a recording of Tom farting if he decided to sell one, which makes me wonder about ‘Smell’ on Explorers 6. He wouldn’t, would he?) Back on topic, I like that you sporadically upload videos because that way they remain something to look forward to.

  • Gabriela Sosa

    Don’t worry Charlie, we’ll love you no matter what. =)

  • Dalia

    i noticed that this video was not necessarily better quality but i guess more enjoyable. I smiled the entire time which may not be exactly what you care about but i guess my point is that it was an awesome video and one of the few of your videos that im pretty sure i can watch repeatedly without getting bored.

    on a completely unrelated note- I am a girl and i have access to the internet so obviously what else is there for me to do but watch coollike videos? :D I was watching some of your old ones and I saw the video “hi :)” again. Is there a reason that you just don’t vlog anymore? you say in the video that you feel like all of your videos then had to have a point and thats why you made the hi :)
    thats kind of how your videos are now arent they? always have to have a point? i think you should do a video in which you just vlog if you’re up for it :D

    SORRYSORRYSORRY for the long post :D
    i asked you on twitter about this but because im not sure you saw my tweet i have decided to ask you here :D if you did see the tweet and just want ignore me or disagree or whatever then don’t worry! :D i won’t be annoying and mention this to you again :D
    DFTBA :D

  • Grace Elizabeth


  • cupcakekelly

    I agree charlie!!!! ur videos are always great! Thanks for explaining tho cuz i was like where is charlie?! for the last few weeks! As long as u didnt disappear off the face of the earth Im happy! :)

  • Lois_J

    As boring as it may seem to you, we actually DO like to know what’s going on in your life Charlie, but I agree that maybe youtube isn’t the best place for that, there’s twitter and blogging for that kind of thing. I can only encourage you to progress with trying to improve the quality of your videos, it can only lead to bigger and better things for your career in the long run! good luck! :)

  • coollike

    I agree completely, though I also love it when those guys put the extra effort into their videos. Craig’s choose-your-adventure videos, or Hank and John’s Thoughts from Places videos for eg :)

  • Hope Lappin

    I am glad your being completely honest in this blog. I often agree that for some YouTubers it is more a case of quantity rather than quality. I think that if anybody is a fan of you as a YouTuber they will not mind if they miss out on one of your videos for a week :D

  • Rae B

    I can’t wait to see what you come up with! To know that you are truly putting so much effort and care into these videos is inspiring! =)

  • Courtneys2309

    That is really admirable of you, Charlie. But I promise you, quality videos where the content is merely an update on your life will still be found very interesting to us viewers. After all, that is part of vlogging! However, I understand your wanting to make things your proud of, and I, as a view appreciate that as well. So just keep doing what you’re doing and you know your viewers will always love you and your wonderful talent and dedication to quality!

  • Jessie Owen

    I’d noticed your new video My Crib 2 was a little different to your others! Different in that you included the sort of fish-eye lens thing where it’s rounded, panning, voiceovers, transitions, focus switching and the epic HDness. It all seemed really professional rather than just experimenting :D nice one, Charlie.
    Looking foreword to what’s coming up on the coollike channel. Also, love your blog. :)

  • edlyn

    your emphasis on quality and making things you are proud of makes me admire you even more. i love you charlie, and look forward to your brilliant future (not that it isn’t brilliant now; as you said you are already creating and walking towards your dreams :)

  • Manxiboogle

    I admire your principles, and loved the camera work on your latest video; please don’t change charlie :D

  • Victoria Elson

    I think your fans would happy if all you posted was a video of you getting dressed in the morning tbh.

  • aliten7

    That was one of the best videos i believe you have made in a while. I don’t know if you were trying to make it funny, but it had me laughing! thanks for that pick me up!!!

  • Michael Markman (Mickeleh)

    Onward. Upward. Word.

  • Jeaneva

    Even though I would like more Charlie in my subscription queue, I appreciate your dedication to your art as well as your honesty. Also, the idea of a feature film directed and made by you has got me super excited. Keep up the great work! 8D

  • Brianna

    I did notice that the quality of My Crib 2 was MUCH better than before, not that your previous videos weren’t great or anything :)
    I think opting for quality over quantity is a great idea and I support you!

  • randomjellybeanz

    Charlie, I can honestly say that whenever a new video of yours pops up, on your main channel or charlieissoboredlike, I am delighted and excited and it makes my day. Do you think you could make vlogs more often…’A Day in the Life of Charlie McDonnell’ maybe? Anyway, I <3 your videos and I <3 how much you care about them. :D

  • Ian

    I think your fans appreciate your personality and humour more than they do the content of your videos—I mean, most of the time I just forget about the content all together. It’s your witty remarks and snarky attitude that keep me watching. What I found with My Cribs 2 was actually the opposite of that, though. It was probably one of my least favourites of your videos simply because of that. I did, however, think the camera work was an example of some of your best.

  • Tyler

    I’m not going to say you’re right solely for the reason that your audience is going to like you no matter what, because frankly, they won’t–you know that as much as I do.

    However, this is not a comment ripping your motivation for making videos, either; in fact, I think it is a great idea–but not just because you’ve convinced me by writing this blog post. Nay, it’s because you ARE making better quality videos, and not just giving excuses to the vast majority of your audience who says “I mean, I’d prefer quantity over quality, so long as I can see your FACE and hear your VOICE llolol!!!!111one”

    You’re taking the same step that great writers, directors, and producers take: putting all they have into a smaller amount of brilliant content rather than putting out a piece frequently solely for the fact that making more movies does mean more profit.

    Look at John Green. He writes a book, pores over edits, and it gets published every three-ish years, give or take. He has said himself that he takes FOREVER editing the novel so that he can truly be proud of the final outcome, even if that means it takes two years between when he first finished the book to when it hits the stores.

    Look at Martin Scorsese. The MINIMUM time between two full-length feature films (that aren’t documentaries) that he directs is around two years. Why do people continue to watch his films? Because they’re freaking amazing, that’s why.

    Look at James Cameron. The time between Titanic and Avatar was 12 years. That’s a little much…I mean, really? 12 years for another feature film? Granted, he is one of the richest men in film right now, but still…I didn’t even care for Titanic or Avatar, either…He’s an example of waiting a little TOO long.

    Anywhere you look, you’ll find more examples. This last video I thought was a huge step up–most notably the transitions, the zooming, and the lenses – all made for an enjoyable experience that you obviously enjoyed.

    Do what you want. Some people, despite what they say, will leave. So be it. As long as you don’t wait until you start looking like James Cameron or Martin Scorsese, I think you’ll be fine.

  • Sarah

    As much as I believe we all do appreciate and agree that your videos are amazing, Charlie, we fell in love with the vlogger. Anything you post, even those in boredlike are always incredibly fun to watch even if you have no plan in them at all.

    I think it’d be good to see more vloggish videos – perhaps in a seperate channel like boredlike in the future. I’d literally cream myself with excitement.

  • DanielleLavy

    I appreciate this. You are an artist. You can’t rush art. The new video was great! Your editing skills and the amount of effort you put into your videos are one of the reasons I truly enjoy them. I mean, personality and looks help too, of course. But…good movies don’t just come from great actors or whatever. They take time and editing and preparation. Keep doing what you are doing, Charlie. Most people that I read comments from said they liked the quality of the last video a lot. :)

  • Jeanphi Druet

    just thank you for your videos. do as you want !

  • Maddison Whiffin

    I agree with DanielleLavy – don’t rush it, this is a seriously good video, which shows that it just gets better the more time and effort you spend! I don’t know how many of these comments you get round to reading, Charlie, but if you do end up reading this one I just want to say that I am AMAZED at how you can sit infront of a camera talking or doing silly challenges, and make a career out of it :) Seriously, thats cool ;) A couple of friends of mine are thinking of starting group volgging and the ‘challenge charlie’ thing has been really good inspiration :) Keep it up Charlie, you are spectacular and I love your music! Genius :) x

  • Sara

    Why can’t you put on ” bloopers ” on YouTube? I mean, if you have any, haha ^__^
    It would be fun to watch! And i loved the latest video you did ( Crib 2 ). And im probably gonna stare at the picture on your closet all the time now, why did you mentioned it Charlie?! Hahah!
    You should have your own comedy show, seriously…

  • Graham

    Sounds great! I love me some quality.

  • your just a cool guy charlie

    don’t care what you say or do—juts watch you for your engaging smile and humour and self-deprecation—refreshing. but mainly your smile!! great teeth!

  • Katelovescharlie

    I really liked all the effects or what have you that you did in this most recent video, I respect that you want to be proud of the work that you make, and I say keep doing what you are doing because I love it!

  • Lieselot

    I think people don’t always realise the hard work of making those videos and “hey”, everyone deserves some free time. I sometimes too get disappointed when there keep being no videos, but than, I just turn of the computer to do something else (like shopping).
    I would also like to say that your videos are the only ones I really enjoy watching, because of some reasons: 1) you have a good camera, 2) you have of course a lovely face, 3) your videos are funny, 4) the videos are well edited and 5) every one of them is a masterpiece (well almost ^^) There is of course no way you will have read this, but it feels nice to have said something sweet about you! (and it’s a good way to improve my English. greats from Belgium! :)

  • Amy M

    I really did notice a lot of the technical bits. The match on action and all that good stuff. It was appreciated. Sure, I love seeing new Charlie as much as I can, but the quality jump adds a whole new entertainment level.

  • Bookluver

    I dont mind this change in videos at all. I extremely enjoyed watching this video. The transitions were fun to watch and i thought that the quality of funnyness was definetly still there.

  • dualdestiny

    Thanks for caring about us enough to let us know…

    Oh yeah and showing us your bed ;)

  • Daniela Peralta ♫

    >>>>>> It’s awesome the way you care about this, the way in which you wanna grow, and the will you have to accomplish anything you propose yourself! That amazes me every time, and not only makes YOU proud, but all of us, Charlie. We’ll never stop waiting new and brilliant things from you, because that’s how you are, keep going, and never leave us! :)

  • Anna Guariento

    :( When I read this, I felt like you were saying you were considering going off YouTube. I know you weren’t saying that, but I felt like you were doubting your whole “Career On YouTube” thing. Please don’t, you make me and thousands of other so happy when you make your videos. I don’t mind if you don’t make them so often, but please, never go off YouTube. If you’re just doing it for the cash and don’t enjoy it, I can see that, but I sincerely hope you do enjoy it and you will stay on YouTube till you’re too old to walk :)
    I Love You Charlie!!!
    :( Please don’t leave. It would break my heart.

  • Shannon

    I think it’s really smart of you to use your hobby to develop new skills you want to have. I admire that a lot. Keep up the good work, Charlie.

  • Kendall Vahl

    Hey Charlie,
    I’ve been an avid admirer of your work for about about a year or so now, and I must say that this video is probably the best so far. As soon as I finished watching it I noticed how different it was from all the rest of your videos ( using a number of different lenses and adding in clever transitions ) I’m very impressed, to say the least. I’m a film / cinematography major over here in the states, and to be utterly honest, I haven’t seen anything this clever in awhile. You are truly quite talented, my friend. I applaud your decision to make the videos a once a week thing. What I really wanted to ask you though was what kind of camera you’re using. I’ve been shopping around and can’t seem to find the right one! Help would be greatly appreciated, sir :)

    with this video, do you realise how much tumblr weirdness you have just sparked off? 0.o

  • Faith Susan Halick

    You know what you should do? Make a second channel. Your charlieissocoollike channel can be for your quality videos, and you can do a twice weekly vlog on your second channel.

  •!/Amiefeline Elliecia (Trok Fan #1)

    I agree with Melina, The Alex/Charlie slash will abound in the fact that you have a flat together. Anyways loved the video and hope you keep bringing them out. Soon I will put up my first video blog, when I get the bravery.

  • DoraTheBrit

    You’re doing a great job, if improving quality was your goal, cause it’s definitely been my immediate thought nowadays when I watched your vids – I thought, wow, Charlie’s turning into a pro what’s that all about?? Especially after you’ve got a new cam. So well done, keep it up! :)

  • Anonymous

    I actually think “tumblr weirdness” is in your top 20 videos of all time! It was creepy, yes. But actually funny!

  • Alex

    Make a 2nd channel with dailyvlogs like some people do, like Tobuscus (:

  • Lydia Ist Fuller

    I completely admire your integrity. It’s obvious when a YouTuber is uploading half arsed videos for the money and it does make me want to turn off, so keep up the quality! =)

  • beni

    I really like your new video, it’s great that your choosing quality over quantity cos I think in the long run you’ll benefit more from it, especially if you want to get into directing. But don’t be put off by just doing a vlog sometimes. I think a lot of people are fond of them, like myself cos it’s like the old days when you were just doing this in your bedroom cos you were bored. It’s nice to have a balance, maybe a second channel is a good idea, one where you’re not so conscious of what you put up.

  • Ruby Bauckham

    OMG I WANT TO MARRY YOU EVEN MORE NOW…ok i forgive you but only because you AS SEXY AS YOU ARE! xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  • Emma Snyggingen Öhgren

    Damn, you’re cute.

    Challenge Charlie!
    Sing Happy Birthday to me with a ukulele ! I turn 17 today!

  • Kidsdino8s

    Good for you.

  • TheSophMB

    I still see the creativity you also used to have in your older videos and that is very important, I think. As long as they are creative and as long as you DO videos, that’s completely fine. Your real fans will understand that and I definitely do!
    Thanks for uploading all the videos in the past and thanks for all the videos which will come in the future. You are adorable.

  • Terri Mitchell

    I’ve been watching your videos for years now and I think it’s wonderful watching you grow and move on into the future. I can’t wait for the next Chameleon Circuit cd. If it it out by September, I will buy it for my daughter’s 18th birthday. Maybe, you could even sign it for her?!?

  • Sydney

    I actually like that you post videos less frequently. Not only are they better quality videos, but when I see your videos in my subscription box, I get so happy and excited, and I get more excited when it doesn’t happen as often. :)

  • Sara

    THANKS for writing and making videos for us Charlie Mcdonnell ! :D
    You are so funny, and so damn cute!

  • Cakeykhan

    Charlie i will miss you! =( See you every 2 weeks then ok =)

  • Alicia

    you go glen coco. you know people are going to support you no matter what. and look at you, sticking to your values, making videos for you.
    you’re such a good person.

  • Lady.B’re so cute ^.^

  • Maggie

    Charlie, there was never a point that I thought your videos were lacking in quality, or were slowly becoming less interesting, and I’m sure the majority of your fans would agree. You may be putting too much needless pressure on yourself. Your fans enjoy the videos you put up because they know how much pride and effort you put into your work, and truly enjoy the result. Don’t feel like you need to change, Charlie, we all love every video you put up, and we love you for being so good at what you do. So thank you for the videos!

  • Elise

    the quality was definitely not taken for granted either. among other things, your false match-on-action at 3:17 was brilliant and definitely did not go unnoticed.

  • Sabina

    You’re so sweet Charlie. It’s lovely that you feel an obligation to your viewers, but don’t ever forget that you don’t actually owe any of us anything. I consider myself a fan of yours, but I don’t expect you to keep me entertained on pain of death- you’re a Youtuber, not a gladiator!

  • astonished_nerd

    I do love to watch your videos. You’re funny so I would probably end up enjoying them anyway, despite from their quality. But yes, I share your way of thinking. And I like to watch videos the maker is satisfied with, so I’ll look forward to them. ;) (And sorry for my weird English)

  • Kali

    You should make the videos you want to make. You’re good at making videos–that should be enough for your viewers.

  • Hannah J

    I can see your point that you’d rather make 1 super fab video than 4 or 5 that are sub standard. It’s cool :)

  • Miss Mel 23

    Good on you Charlie!
    We’re with you all the way!

  • Joy!

    QUESTION (like you’ll see this even, ha!): why did you change from your alarm clock that runs away on you?! That was such a mint alarm clock. :(

  • Mak

    Hi there. I’m fairly new to the youtube community, it has been only couple of months since I’ve started to subscribe to channels. But every time I see new video from you in my subscription box, I instantly want to watch it right away, even if I have other, more pressing matters to go through. Quality over quantity works for you. Keep it going. I enjoy how *you* translate in things you do, create, how you play with certain idea. I love good basic self-expression (Alex Day, lead the way! =), but I find that presentation makes it stronger, more precise, focused, and aware of itself, and eventually form of expression in itself (yep, went a little over the top with that one). You have that element of surprise, *doing something in a new way* kind of thing going, which I like too. So if we see you less, I’m okay with that, if more videos like MyCrib2 are coming.
    And also, I’m getting a bit affected by your charm, so we need to take a little break, time off, but don’t worry, I will call. :)

  • Anonymous

    I noticed, and loved, the extra effort you put into your most recent vid! I like that you keep the essence of what made you famous – your quirkiness, your fast cuts etc- and have also at the same time improved your editing skills and bettered your art. WELL DONE!! :-)

  • Maiken Berntvik

    You know, I wondered that too.. huuh

  • Sophie

    I think it’s great you want to try and make your talent shine even brighter than it already does. Im only in 7 grade but I think I would like to become a film director, and your videos give me some insight. Thank you.

  • noorgansjustawesome

    I appreciate that. Good for you for putting things up because you’re proud of them, not just for the sake of putting them up. That said, I had noticed your past video was especially well done. Bravo.

  • Kristiana<3xx

    I’m following in your footsteps Charlie :)
    This totally relates to my videos. I went for the “put up as many videos as you can” theory, which hasn’t worked and this post thankfully stopped me from putting up another extremly boring video :)x
    Thank You Charlie :)xxxx

  • Elaine

    I loved the way this was shot. I’m glad for one that you are aiming for quality over quantity. I find it fascinating to watch you grow as a creator and artist. Jolly good. :)

  • Jigsawjones

    Off-topic: is it weird at all now, having an Amy Pond cut-out in your living room, when you actually know Amy Pond?

  • Signemacd

    Watching this, I noticed that everything Charlie is no good at, I happen to be good at, and vice- versa. I’m not sure if it’s a good thing.

  • JoyfulJoyful04

    Good on you Charlie, I’m glad you’ve come to this realisation, I think most people watching your videos would perfer to watch quality Charlie, and things that you are truely happy with :) Thankyou so much for being so amazing xx

  • Erin

    I just wanted contribute to the praise for the cinematography of this video. It looks fantastic, well done.

  • Aliin Brena

    well, here’s my opinion, quality+quatity=charlieissocoollike.

    you don’t need to change anything you’ve been doing awsom. so…don’t stop being amazing

  • maria from portugal

    Quite a fan of yours and I must say you took my breath away with this (both the blog entry and the video). I think what I love the most is that you don’t actually care about what any of your viewers have to say, as long as you know who you are as a youtuber and what kind of stuff *you* want to do. I mean, don’t get me wrong, you want us to not feel like we’re wasting our time, but your priorities lie with yourself. I think it’s brilliant and you’ve inspired me. Thank you. Also, you’re not the only one. I prefer quality over quantity as well, so I’m glad you’re doing things that way :)

  • Anonymous

    Eh, I’ll take quality over quantity any day. This video was sort of pretty awesome. :)

    Really impressive how such a mundane thing like an apartment tour could be so interesting to watch!

  • Nicky Moore

    when are we going to see Charlie Pimp My Ride… or Charlie Pimps A Ride… whatever works really.

  • Ida

    I never comment on anything I read or watch on the internet so me commenting here is quite rare. I just felt that, for once in my life, I should share my thoughts, but now I think I shouldn’t have as I seem to end up explaining why I’m doing it…

    Anyway, I think it’s great that you have decided to stick with quality! Your latest videos have been really enjoyable and you have improved a lot. I’m not saying that your older videos are bad because they aren’t. Not at all! They are very good but your recent videos are better, I can see that you have thought about the contents of the videos seriously and put a lot of effort in making them. I wonder what your videos will be like in the future if you keep evolving like this! Pretty awesome, I guess.

    I’m sure your fans enjoy every single video you make but you shouldn’t make things just for other people but for yourself. So if you feel like evolving and putting more effort in the things that you do, then you should! It’s always great to see people improving and especially when they are enjoying the things that they do.

    Thank you for sharing your creativity and your awesome personality with the whole planet Earth. Please keep on being yourself and doing things as you please! (Obviously, duh.) :)

    PS. I’m sorry for expressing myself so poorly! I’m not a native English speaker so I’m not sure if my text is easy to comprehend. D:

  • Cláudia

    Your videos are so cool and I like to spend my time watching them haha And if you want to make a film in the future,go ahead, because you’re really good on it! Congratulations!
    P.s.: I liked your new hair and, for some reason, I love you haha ^^
    PS 2. I’m from Brazil, so I’m not sure if my text is easy to comprehend…

  • Cláudia again

    oops, I posted “so I’m not sure if my text is easy to comprehend…” like Ida, sorry Ida hehe

  • Megan

    I do photography a lot and I can totally relate to this post because I’ve often wondered if I should start a 365 project (posting a photo a day for a year). It just seems to me that it would be pointless since I would be rushing something out just for the sake of it. So I completely agree that quality > quantity and I’m glad that you’re putting so much effort and thought into your videos instead of just cranking them out.

    And I loved the transitions here! Good work :)

  • CJL

    Stop making excuses just do whatever you want, you’re an old boy. This whole blog post is an apology and I dont like that.STOP WPOLOGIZING! Whatever you do your fans on the internet will still love you because you’re handsome and smart and you r not even aware of it at all. You could call it the charlie formula: handsome+total ignorance of that fact+irrational shyness+cleverness=charlieissocoollike phenomenon Its like a disease; the CHARLIEISSOCOOLLIKERITIS. I challenge you to make a video about that phenomenon!!

  • Elizabeth

    As an artist, I can relate. Lately I’ve been too busy to upload any artwork, and even though I could probably whip up something decent, I wouldn’t be happy with it. Usually when I end up posting doodles (unless they’re actually good doodles like human body practice that turns out right but I rarely do those) it’s because I’m just trying to keep up with quota as well.

    I personally appreciate the effort you’re putting into the quality of your videos :) I’m not going to lie, I didn’t quite like the Tumblr video :( I thought it was just a bit dull in its presentation. Just a teeny bit. But Crib 2 was great! Two thumbs up! Loved the transitions particularily :D
    TAaCF was brilliant too :D
    I look forward to your future videos, I know you’ll blow us away!

  • Paulinna_56

    awww!!! Charlieee!!!!!!!!!!! :D :D you are so sweet and cute!! I’d like to say a few things (with the little hope that at some point you get to read this comment): 1. I loooooved the video!!! it was funny, and entertaining, and just very very nice and lovely in every single way, it always puts a smile on my face when i go to youtube and see you’ve uploaded a new video :D 2) I think it’s great that you think this way (quality over quantity) because, as I said before, it’s always nice to go to youtube and see you’ve uploaded a new video, and the stuff you do is very very good, you’re one of my favorite youtubers and i can sincerely tell you that if we’ve subscribed to you is because we think your videos are worth watching, and the fact that you actually care about the quality in your videos is awesome (i’m sorry i can’t find another word haha). 3) I love your blogs, i really enjoy reading what you have to say :)
    and last, but definitely not least, 4) “I’m on here to try and make stuff that I’m really proud of.” i wish i could give a thumbs up for this particular line in your blog. I am proud of you and the stuff you do, if that helps/makes you feel better :) :D <3
    Charlie McDonnell, you are awesome!!! <3 and i hope you never change!
    sorry if this was kind of long hehehe

  • Some Random.

    I’m proud of you. Even though i don’t know you. I think its nice to see someone genuinely trying their best. Especially with these videos, Charlie, it shows that you actually care enough about us to produce something we’d enjoy. Respect.

  • Amanda

    I totally respect this. I miss knowing your videos will for sure be up, but I’m excited to know that you’ll be posting things that YOU’RE happy with. In the end you’re more important than your audience. It is never fun to do things that you’re not very proud of. I can’t wait to see what is in store! :)

  • monica in america

    Charlie, you really shouldn’t worry about the quality of your videos; any Charlie=fabulous Charlie. But, nevertheless, I really admire your integrity to continue to produce your videos for your own happiness, rather than turning it into a soul-sucking business. keep up the good work!

  • Lune Fromage

    I appreciate your commitment to quality. I am an (amatuer) artist and I am sometimes gun shy about showing my work to others. My favourite video of yours is “Understanding Teenage Boys,” and the reason I like it is because you obviously put a lot of thought into that video… “Handiphone” was also hilarious though… In a sense what we create is our legacy after we die, our participation in the immortal… and you want to live on as something meaningful and grand that you put your full self into… Cheers to you for that!

  • CharlieFan

    Do what you need to do, Charlie :)

  • Nina

    hey charlie! i absolutely love your vids, i’ve been watching u for a long time now! keep up the good work, and i kinda want to relaxed vids back haha. obviously you have grown the last couple of years and youtube has become a more serious thing. but, i’d like you to know, that to me you really are brilliant. and sitting with the camera in front of you doing what you love is what you should do.
    so do want you want, i’ll like your vids no matter what. :)

  • laurendar

    Hi Charlie im Laura im from colombia and i have always had curiosity about what else you do apart from uploading videos on youtube, do you go to collegue or something?? Thanks a lot for your time :D eres lo maximo!

  • Nell

    Well said. I admire you for sticking with what you believe. It always seems to work out so don’t be worried by the pressure from your audience because they will follow you whatever. Just do what feels right for you.

  • Ukulele

    I love your videos! One day I’ll eventually start posting on youtube… but till then I love watching yours! and you may be criticizing your vidoes to much because people just want to watch you, not someone who is trying to give them what they want. Thanks!

  • Blair

    Oh Charlie. :)

  • Stashie

    I’m very glad you are pushing for quality over quantity. There’s been some youtuber’s I’ve followed who started putting up way too many videos that were not worth the time to watch anymore and as a result I stopped following them. In conclusion, kuddos to you Charlie!!!

  • Chelsea Lee

    I just love your My Crib 2 video so much, I actually watched it 11 times (yet). Of course I would be pleased if I could see upload more of your videos, but everytime there is a new one I’m superexcited. Take your time and put all the great ideas you have into it, cause this makes me even happier than lots of half-hearted videos. Especially this one is so amazing because of the great effects and all that stuff. It’s just an awesome thing to watch. Ahh, I think I will have to watch it again right now. :)

    I see now how much you played with the focus in this video. I liked it a lot :D I’m excited to see your short film when it comes, no matter how long it may take. I’m really glad that you’re choosing quality over quantity, but remember, there’s always charlieissoboredlike if you feel you’re video is going to be a bit late. I’d love to see you a little more on that channel!

  • Annie

    That’s a really admirable resolution, Charlie. Good for you. :) Can’t wait to see more, whenever that may be. Love from Canada. :P

    You’re brilliant, Charlie. Your videos are a joy to watch and I greatly respect the notion that you’re attempting to make them better. Quality over quantity is a lovely concept and I can’t wait to see what amazing things you come up with in the future, even if there is a bit more space in between than we’re used to.

    Good luck and good job.

  • Yep.

    You mean “you”? Lol.

    I respect your decision about “quality over quantity” and of course I agree with it, but it wouldn’t hurt if you worked on the quantity as well, heheh. so anyways, I love the video, but I’m kind of disappointed :/ why, because we don’t know the story behind that little picture.
    Challange: Tell the story behind that little picture. oh yeah indeed.

  • Kimberley Commonname

    I did actually notice your awesome transitions. Great video =)

  • Chantelle Brooks

    I was thinking to myself the other day that you must be trying to do more quality videos, because I could defiantly tell the difference in your last video (T’was amazing)! I still do wish you would make more videos but I love how dedicated you are and how you aren’t becoming one of those YouTubers who are always making rubbish boring videos.

    Ciao oo
    I saw a couple of your videos are recorded in the scene, and what ever work with programs like Adobe Premier PRO archimedes or simply Windows Movie Maker, study computer graphics, directing, lighting etc. ..
    I read a little bit what I needed to express .. and I believe that everything makes sense in this mondo.personalmente I noticed more transitions editing, sound, and I must say, there are the conditions so that you can become more and more clever. (I look like a prof. sorry hehe)
    the question is above all a:
    you ok? the expression you have is very different from the video I saw long ago, it’s as if you had not gloss over”the”in CO that do.
    I hope I have noticed this in a wrong way.
    thanks for the vision and heart for making me laugh .. without any thought, as when children have returned. (hehe it really is not that adult heheh)
    saluti from sicilyyyyyy

  • Katie Dolan

    We need more people like you on YouTube…

  • Oscarsm86

    Charlie, you did an amazing job on this video, your quest for quality definitely shows, but, is it me or when you talk about “quality” you mean “technical quality”? The quality isnt just on the great cameras and fancy effects, but on the capacity of the person to commuicate in a way that is attractive and fun. You did an awesome job whe you started with a crappy webcam, and weve all seen you grow ever since.

  • Frida Erblad

    I love it when you post new videos! But I have to be honest, sometimes it is a bit challenging to keep up with what you say. Have you ever been told that you are a fast-talker? But I have to admit that I actually like the challenge! Haha … Keep up the good work, love your work!

    Frida from Sweden!

  • Bresands

    Personally, I really appreciate your aim for quality. The transitions and lenses were in fact awesome, but your excitement and just having fun with the video is what I know I love seeing. I’d rather wait ages to watch your videos and know you’re happy with them than see constant uploads where you’re not enjoying yourself.

  • Rhiannon

    I loved your latest video, when I watched it I appreaciated the transitions and I could tell a lot of work went in, it my new favourite.

  • Ana Horvat

    hyy……..I like your videos…they are so cool…….when I’m sick I love wtching them…because…well thoose videos are the only thing that can amke me happy when I’m sick………soo…I have a little challenge for you….why don’t you make a video about how much do you know about CROATIA….I live there…btw…..anyhow I’d really like to see a video about that….. :))))))))))

    Hello! I’m Geraldine from Argentina. I think that is good to have ambitions and always try to keep then alive, so good for you! And also let me tell you that your videos not only are funny and entertaining, they also have an interesting production what makes them more serious so we can realize that you are not like a common YouTuber but you are so cool like!
    PS: As a challenge, could you sing any love song for saint Valentine’s day and dedciate it to me? Please? I’ll undersand if you don’t want it but you can also dedicate it to all your teenage girls too. It would be lovely!

  • Julianne

    I really loved this video, it was very interesting to watch… Even the 11th time

    No matter how long you making the video I can wait :)

  • Ali

    So I’m taking a film class and over the weekend my teacher assigned us to find a video of any kind that demonstrated different panning, angles, shots, direction using focus, etc that we could share. Needless to say I’m using your latest video as my example :) Good work Charlie!

  • lilbluberry

    Charlie McDonnell, I challenge you to make the weirdest recipe in your “Cooking for Blokes” cookbook!

  • SuperYam

    I love the fact that you want to make sure that the quality of your videos will be high but I also think a random vlog every ones in a while won’t be too bad either… I didn’t watch the video you chose not to upload (obviously) but I doubt it was that boring, it sounds like old school Charlie and it’s kinda nice…
    I know you want to be completely satisfied with what ever you do but you need to remember that this great videos with cool camera shots weren’t always there when you first started and we still stayed because you are awesome and funny either way (:

  • Nanda!

    Olá, Charlie!

    Well if you weren’t 100% satisfied with some of your past videos you should take your time to make something you’re completely proud of… Right?

    Apparently you want to make an entertaining video, something funny and enjoyable for your fans to watch but I’ve always thought your top priority should be, well, YOU enjoying the whole process of making these videos. If not, it’s just some kind of job, I guess.

    I think I can speak for all your fans when I say that we want you to have fun with this, too. And to be proud of it.

    … I’ll stop saying obvious things now. lol

    Sorry for the grammar (if something’s wrong). I’m from Brazil and I haven’t completed my English course yet. fail

  • =^. .^=

    Really great video. Of course, all of your videos are really great. You have a way of being funny and charming and can make anything interesting. By the way, the random Doctor Who monster in your bathroom is an Axon. Yes I am a geek, why do you ask?

  • Kirstyholden

    :) Nice Crib…All Your Videos Are Great :) You sooo cool and it was soo intreting to watch…Even the 5th time :D x

  • Guest

    Love the additional effort! Great vid, excellent effects. What editor did you use to get them?

  • Kelseyy

    I just have a question, i was watching your videos, and you said that you are maybe a homosexual. I was intrigued by this, i am a teenage girl around your age, and i have a massive crush on you. You are hysterical, honest, very cute, and it seems you are an al around nice guy. I can see all this just from your videos, i wonder what your like in real life! Well i was just wondering if you were gay, or bi or something, just to make sure im not crushing on someone who wouldnt crush on me back ;). Well please answer this question in a video or something. Thank you! You are amazing!!

    xoxo, Kelsey <3

    Charlie McDonnell, I challenge you to cook an elaborate meal.

  • TheStrapafainer

    maturating, refining yourself is a good idea!

    could be that some people don’t like the way that you choose, but in the other hand it’s sure that some people like this way!

    just this is your decision, and i think that if you’ve got so many people following you, you are doing a good job!

    let’s go!

  • guest

    he’s not, do your homework kelseyy!

  • Duckpondwithoutducks

    Watch his video Tumblr Wierdness to get a clear answer to your question.

  • Mortadelle

    There’s just one teeeny tiny thing I’ve noticed with YouTubers’ videos – they tend to cut short on reactions. I don’t think I need to point out a specific video of yours or anyone else (if you really want to, get in touch w me and I’ll dig up a few noticeable examples). I once heard someone from the moving images industry say that action is great, but ppl like to see reactions. When someone says something and the reaction of the other person is cut short, it feels like bad editing or like you really really wanted to put the reaction in but something else happened and you had to cut short.
    If you’ve got pals in the TV or movie industry, talk to them about this detail. I’m sure they’ll give you good pointers.
    Otherwise, this video kicked ass big time. I was blown away! This is a whole new level! Keep it up! Loooooove it!

  • Monika

    i challenge you to tell me where your house actually is.

  • Rachael

    I challenge you to attempt fencing ^.^

  • Noname_likeme

    I like the way you plug away at your videos. Not anyone can do the same. A conscientious Youtuber

  • Rudhayaini M

    You do realize that when you say, “Hey, this is my bed,” you actually seem as if you are inviting the audience to join you there? Damn, you’re good with your expressions.

    Getting to learn a lot from watching your videos and I hope you continue to make such good ones in the future as well.
    And I challenge you to wear a saree and make a vid out of it ^_~

    To be honest, I found your recent videos to be, yes, different, but not any less entertaining or interesting. Everything you make is pretty good quality, and the fact that you have always been experimenting with your filming and especially editing techniques has been excellent to see; seems like you’ve always cared about the quality of your videos.

  • ^__^

    Happy Valentine’s day Charlie! <3
    I Challenge you to dance for us on valentine's day!

  • Yongkyungchoi

    the challenge for Valentine’s day is loving a girl!!! <3

  • Karoline

    Hi Charlie!
    I prefer the quality of the newer videos more than frequent crappy-ness (however it rarely turns crappy, when you make videos!) Videos SHOULD be a passion more than a necessary pay-check! However, we are many who care about you. Really, there is no reason why in particular, since you live plenty of miles away, and we IN FACT don’t know you. However, it would be really lovely if you wrote some blogposts instead. Love, fangirl.

  • TheStrapafainer

    I know it’s harder than you read this, but I wanted to advise you that if you use a bungee cord (elastic rubber) to rotate the camera when using a tripod, the elasticity of rubber get you a fluid effect, without shaking the frame or something…

  • Brenda Giménez

    Hey, Congratulations. Your way is the right one. I agree with you, and also, I think you are doing a great work. I love it.
    Big hug from Buenos Aires, Argentina.

  • Spidermonkey4567

    I challenge you to challenge Michael Aranda (If i’ve spelt that right) in a bean eating contest. Try it with a cocktail stick and try to do it in under a minute! Lot of love for charlie!

  • emma

    I love your videos charlie. and always look forward to them :) if the fact that they wont come as frequently means they are going to be as awesome as ever then i really dont mind, and im pretty sure all the other people who enjoy watching them wont either :D

    It’s always worth the wait charlie!
    And don’t be afraid to post boring content! You can utilize your 2nd channel charlieissoboredlike for real blogging, like kylesnexusone does.
    We could always use someone to spy on alex.

    As long as you don’t stop posting videos, I don’t mind waiting two weeks :)

    Happy Valentines Day, Charlie! x

  • Loughlincarl

    hi, ive bought a canon 60d as i saw it in your video and i wanted to make videos with a good camera. The camera arrived today but HOW do you make the background blurred and you in focus? I have the same lens as you, 18-55 I just cant work out how to do it? Can you help charlieiscoollike? ha ha I need youre expertise.

    Or anyone with a canon 60d can you advise me?

    Hope someone can help!

    Your awesome, keep making us all laugh……….as we sit in front of our computer screen religiously watching……………

  • OliviaW

    I am very much in favor of quality over quantity.
    This was a very entertaining video in a random-honesty sort of way (plus, well, you’re funny).
    Also, you have a pretty cool-looking flat. All of your furniture looks very modern.

  • OliviaW

    Everything I’ve read by Michio Kaku is also very, very good. Some of it is on string theory rather than quantum stuff, though,

  • PRKon

    Oh Charlie. We don’t care how far apart your videos are as long as they’re still great quality, entertaining and fun to watch. Just do what you want to do and we’ll still love you for it!

  • Vicky

    Charlie! I think it’s really cool that you put so much thought, time and dedication when making a video.. They are amazing and I really enjoy watching them! But I think sometimes you don’t need to try so hard. Fans like you for who you are! A once-in-a-while, casual update about what you’ve been up to would really please us! :)

    I guess what I’m trying to say is don’t feel so pressured and wanting to make things perfect all the time! Just take your time and be yourself! You are AWESOME ;)

  • CharlieLover

    Charlie u have such a great talent I really like your videos..keep doing it, You make my day, Love U…Happy Valentine’s day…♥♥♥

  • someonewhopostedhere

    As long as you still have a British accent, I’m good.

    Nah, I’m actually quite impressed with the last video. When you faded onto those shoes, I was like “Woa! It’s all blurry and now it’s not!” (to demonstrate my wonderful use of vocabulary….)

    Anyway, I’m glad you’re taking ambition into this. I’ve seen way too many youtubers get so caught on their “I’m a youtube partner!” business they forget their original meaning: making art. I can’t wait to see what you’re future brings. I have faith! (So you may NOT find my lack of faith disturbing…to add a poorly added Star Wars reference….)

  • Brian

    Charlie you would make a great film director someday! I still think you should take some more acting classes along with film classes. I could see you become an actor and a film director! You are right to chose quality over quantity its just your fans can’t get enough of you! :) I took a few film classes along with my theater classes and that’s what I did to learn more experience and strive to get better the next time I made a film short. I took theater as a major but I am’ going to
    learn more about film because that’s where the money is! Have you gone to any University to study film or acting yet? You do have the talent to be a film director, actor, singer, so try them all and figure out which direction your heart tells you to go! Find a great film school if you don’t want to go to a University! Anyway, I wish you the best and that you will succeed at what ever
    path you choose!

    Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Charlie boy!

  • Leigh-Anne

    I think it’s great that you’re trying to improve the quality of your videos. Why are people hammering you for more frequent videos? I’m sure you are busy sometimes and I especially enjoyed the latest one. Quality over quantity is best in your case I reckon! (I’ve just realised everybody has said the same as me… Oh well :D)

  • robbart79

    You do what you must, Charlie! Historically and ’till present, you’ve always been able to capture the audience, bring in new subscribers and have a dedicated fanbase. I’ve been watching you for years, and I’m still around. Keep up the great work…life happens outside of YouTube, people just need to accept that real fact!

  • Timcote7

    Sincerely impressed by all your vids and I’m excited to think we may see you in other arenas such as feature films! Very entertaining and engaging stuff mr cool-like!

  • charlie’sfan

    i hope that charlie would do vlogging and let people hear him sing until he dies.

  • Camila

    I really like you new flat, I wish you had show us alex’s room to complete the tour. but now I have a challenge for you, I want you to answer this what kind of supernatural creature would you be? and also give us and explanation and draws of the “mutated” charlie (I don’t think thats the wright speling, sorry)

    sorry about my english, I’m from Uruguay and we speak spanish so this is a bit hard for me, but I really enjoy your show, keep doing it. Camila

  • Camila… again

    pd: love your new album and hope you write new songs soon. waiting for the next video

  • elli

    heey dude :)

    i hoope you read this.

    my friend has her 18th birthday on march,2nd and i’d loooove love to hear you say ‘happy birthday svenna’ to her in one of you videos at this date!

    you’re quite cool but still ‘a massive nerd’


    PS: i also worte you a pm via youtube

  • Monika Paniczek

    Hey your videos are …………. wow !! I really love them !!

  • A Very Big Nerd

    I challenge you to make an Ocarina of Time parody, like you originally made your YouTube account for. If you’re wondering, yes, I am a Zelda fan. Woop!

  • Kate

    I love your videos so, so much and i agree with the quality not quantity thing. But, i think you can edit videos too much and i think your videos aren’t as ‘you’ as they used to be. They are more like pieces of excellent camerawork or programmes on the telly now. Its hard to write in words, but i mean they are very short and snappy and proffesional now, whereas you used to sometimes just chat about stuff in your older videos.
    I’m not dissing your videos, because i love them and i think they are excellent. But, just saying sometimes a vlog-format can be good and don’t be tooo self-critical. Its like when you paint a painting and get too carried away.
    I miss your old videos which were just random and funny :D X

  • Suzanne

    I actually watched this for like….. 15 times right now O_O

  • german student

    actually I do not think that you are making too less videos. in fact I was suprised hearing by my friend that you have uploaded a new one yet. in my opinion, one video per month would be enough as well. I enjoy watching your videos because they are so funny, and as long as they keep being so, I do not care how often you post a new one.

  • mike

    I think you are at a lost stage…you don’t know what to do…so you r getting stuck…and things are not working as you wanted or thought before moving to London. Doesn’t matter the fame, neither contacts….all that you have realized that it’s not enough…and also having a girlfriend or friend needs intimate moments…so charlie…you are a normal kid, trying to struggle out among this jungle world. Just live your life and be happy and as you said enjoy what you want and like…if you fancy to upload each fortnight….ok….if you fancy each fortnight “both quality and quantity”….great. You are growing up, and realizing that everything and everybody changes…you can’t be Peter Pan. All the best charlie!!!

  • Neyna

    I think your videos are great! But I kinda miss the vlogs, where you talk about what’s happening in your life. :)

  • N00ne

    Mate where can I get that wallpaper ^ _ ^ you had on your Mr. Shiny monitor. Im quite bad at mspaint so I cant make it :(

  • Evey2wrld

    Great video! Your crib is indeed fantastic! But don’t you think it’s time to start doing sth more….adventurous again? Like..i don’t know….paint your crib magenda pink, or sth lke that?!!!?
    Apart from my little comment, which i hope you will consider, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!

  • VAanimeotaku

    This video was amazing but there is nothing wrong with vlog. you do have a 2nd channel so take advantage of it and place vlogs there

  • Jennameep

    I always look forward to your videos :)
    Yeah, I too wish that you’d make some more often but I agree that videos that are good quality, but less often, are better than lots and lots of videos that aren’t as good.
    Keep up the good work! I can’t wait for what you come up with next!

  • Merg

    do another video on doctor who after the season premiere!

  • Albthy

    Adorei esse vidéo achei o melhor de todos .

  • Dani :)

    hi.!! i honestly dont understand about of what you said because you talk so damn fast (i’m from chile) but i really laughed a lot :D I read everything you wrote and I agree with you :D aaaand….i love your bedroom. take care :) nice big blue or green eyes :P

  • Max

    That little figure is from The Clwas of Axos…yes I am a nerd too.

  • myfieryoz

    Some of your best videos are those that you and your friends have done for charity. They serve a greater purpose and are fun to watch progress (such as ChartJackers).

  • Anja

    I have always been wondering, why you have brown eyes on the album cover, since I got it. I just think it’s weird, ’cause it’s obvious, that you have blue eyes. :D (Green when you have purple skin)

  • nonsenseproof

    I haven’t been watching your videos for the whole time you’ve been on youtube and I’ve only seen a couple of the older videos, so I don’t know exactly how much of a contrast these recent ones are compared to ones back in the day (although from the other comments I’m going to assume it’s pretty different). However, I’m a video student right now in college, and I just want to let you know that even before I read this blog post, I was really impressed with “My Cribs 2″ in terms of shot composition, transitions, and cutaways. I think it’s very cool how you’re making a conscious effort to try new things, and yet still treat it pretty vlog-like with funny comments and bits about your life. It’s awesome. Looking forward to seeing what you do next – short films, features AND more polished vlogging :)

  • Jolie

    Mister McDonnell, I completely agree with you about focusing on quality over quantity, but I am also of the opinion that you are good enough to do both at the same time. You have four year youtube video experience, so you are able to make a high quality video per week. Besides, your watchers expect more from you.
    Don’t get me wrong. This is what I think.

  • Dieblobb

    I personally think that the quality of the content of the video should be good as well as the editing. I dont really care about quantity as it wont be worth watching (or making for your case) loads of videos that really arent that great

  • Charliefan394

    Love your videos and I think it good that you do what you want to do and not make something that your not proud of!
    Also, I love your’s so lovely!
    Longing to your next video :)

  • Charliefan394

    I challenge you to try to speak Swedish.
    Here is some example of what you can say:
    Hej, jag heter Charlie McDonnell – Hi, my name is Charlie McDonnell
    Jag bor i London med min rumskompis Alex – I live in London with my roommate Alex
    Hur mycket ved skulle en vedhuggare hugga, om en vedhuggare skulle hugga ved – How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck would chuck wood
    Sverige ligger i Skandinavien mellan Norge och Finland – Sweden is in Scandinavia between Norway and Finland

    It would be very funny if you could do this :)

  • Anonymous

    I challenge you to make a parody about Doctor Who. And YOU have to be the doctor! Either pick an already existing episode. OR make up your own! But it has to be totally Doctor whoish! =P Btw I would totally vote for YOU to be the 12th… or 13th doctor! That would be fantastic! =D Have a wonderful day Charlie!! <3

  • Kathyandoce

    Oh dear, you are so sweet! :) I hope you have a wonderful week, okay? :) And don’t forget to always smile, it makes for a better day! -Kathy

  • A.C.

    I agree! My friend and I were just dicussing that today, actually. (Because we’re nerds and, while we were doing an extensive video project, many Doctor Who quotes came about.) We were talking about the 9th, 10th, and 11th Doctors when I said, “You know who would make a good 12th or 13th Doctor?” (although a 13th Doctor isn’t technically supposed to exist). She goes, “Charlie McDonnell?” Let it be known you may have a fan cult starting about this.

    By the way, if you could, in some hypothetical universe, be the Doctor, what would your “additions” be? (Like how Tennant brought back the trainers and the “clever glasses” while Matt Smith used the bowtie. Although, I’m sorry, I don’t think even you could pull off a decorative vegetable, though I would dare you to try.)

  • Haley Forte

    I completely understand where you’re coming from, and though I do miss seeing frequent new videos, I can still watch the same one over and over and be cheered up every single time!! I think the fact that your videos never get old is very important to your fanbase and you should definitely take your time if you feel like you need to!
    Take care and do your best! We’ll all be cheering you on! ^^
    PS I challenge you to try to make one of the queen’s guard laugh. OH MY GOD that would be amazing!! :D (I have tried and epically FAILED, though I did get a very mean smirk from one of them when I dropped my camera on the ground. =.= I think you’d do a lot better that I did!! :D)

  • AK

    Haha don’t worry. You know your fans will drool over anything you post, so it’s okay. How bout more shirtless scenes and things to put on tumbler xD

  • Goodmorningmarcus

    Very noble of you Charlie, and this was a very markably higher quality video than normal.


  • Kcdoodle110

    hello charlie,
    my sister thinks your hotter because of the better quality. . . idk what that has to do with your hotness, but kudos to the incredible quality, and i do have a small request for my crazy sister . . .? she’s turning 16 on april 1st (yeah, i know) so i thought maybe cuz she loves you you could give her just a tinee tiny shout out? maybe even just an email to the email please? it would make me the coolest sister ever . . . .? pleeeeeeaaaaaaaaase???? thank you for taking the time to actually read this :)

    You’ve got to have some sort of goal in order to keep improving, seems like a good plan to me. Hone your skills!

  • Kourtny Leia

    Oooh that’s too cool! =D There isn’t supposed to be a 13th? I’m just a newbie Doctor fan! But a big fan at that! =P I think charlie should die his hair red again for being the doctor! =D We totally SHOULD start a fan base on Charlie being a doctor! haha =D

    Hiya charlieee :) I have this great idea! I think that each month, you could read out a list of people who had their birthdays or something because that would make everyone feel super special because we all like love you! (my birthday is on the 16th of March by the way…wink wink!) One more thing, YOU. ARE. SUPER. AWESOME. CHARLIE!!!!!!

  • Brenda :)

    I just had a charlieissocoollike marathon, which was, of course, AMAZING! Then I fell asleep and had a dream starring Charlie and I and an adventure in Texas, but that’s another story…. moving forward I just thought I’d leave my love and let ya know you really inspire me with your quality of videos, so I’ll wait for as long as you need to create another delight for us. While I wait, I shall start a Dr. Who marathon on Netflix.
    Much Love <3

    Charlie, not only your videos worth my time but also your blog here. I can see you are such a splendid youtuber that requires yourself to make videos with high quality. Your self reflection also reminds me to do better and, a well-planned people like you deserves a sucessful life.

    Hurray! Keep it up! :)

    I must say, i sometimes do wish you uploaded videos more often but i guess your right and thats why i love your work. you put so much into them and the outcome is great! I LOVE YOU CHARLIE :)

  • lilalola777

    how do i email you i heard in one of your videos that there was a way to email you. but i just realized instead of emailing you i could just tell u what i was gona tell you what i had to say in the email here but then i thought that maybe you would never read this so i should just wait to find out your email but then i realised that if you were giving me the email u must have read this so that means thati concluded to just ask you here.
    what program software thingy do you use to edit your videos???

  • luvulotz

    i have a new challenge i want you to dress up in womens clothing and act like a ballerina

  • Bartholomew Cubbins

    Oh my God, you’re so cute! I really enjoy your videos and well, yes, I’d like you to make more videos but yeah I’m happy with all the work you’ve done :)
    Keep going Charlie!

  • Farny

    Just to say I really enjoy watching your videos and keep them coming at whatever pace you choose :). You say you don’t see youtube as a job, even though you earn money from it, so I’d argue we’re not your ‘customers’ and therefore not always right? Soo yeahh, Just do what you do best, I say!
    I am intrigued at the prospect of you releasing a short film! I wondered whether it would be along the same lines as ‘The Social Network’ but obviously Youtube rather than Facebook? Or perhaps a good ol’ sci-fi with Nerimon & co?
    That be all!

  • Kiitty Aniimal PigletLovee

    I understand that you want to make better quality videos but most of us just like to see you do what you do best….be funny! Keeping in mind the fact that
    You’ll try to make a schedule, it doesn’t really matter because we’ll still be your subscribers!

  • Dancerofhope14

    I just started watching your vids, my fave by far is the song about love
    It is so encouraging to know that I’m not the only person in this world who is
    Willing to wait for that special someone:D thankyou for what you do:)

  • Jana

    I think it’s a great that you realised what’s good for you and how you wanna work. I’m just happy to see all your great videos. You know, there are so many people in this world, who really likes you or at least your videos, and I’m sure they can wait a few days longer for a good video. :)
    OMG! That is all so wired, do you even know what I mean? Well, most of all I wanted to say, your videos and your “playing around” with the technique is just great.
    Thank you for these videos. :)

  • Dalia :)

    You are absolutely crazy! I just found a video of yours, accidentally, and I coudn’t stop watching another one and another one. Most probably I’m not going to become a huge fan and chase your page every freaking day, but it was certainly a real pleasure to see your work.
    You are a beautiful person :) (and I’m not talking about your look)
    Carpe diem and keep smiling!

  • Jummi

    Can’t wait to watch a short film made by you!
    I find it great that you want to keep Youtbe as a hobby.That’s very genuine.

  • Dancerofhope14

    Radome question: do you still have “I found charlie” pins?

  • Kirstyholden

    yes charlie,You are a nerd,
    But Thats Why We All Love You! X

  • Dancerofhope14

    Btw love the new room, but I have to ask, what happened to the little alarm clock on wheels?

  • Dancerofhope14

    Awwww thanks for the album! How could you possibly know that it will be my birthday in like two weeks;)
    Anyway I enjoyed the album, it was very creative, the song about love is still my favorite, thanks again Charlie:D

  • Sofiablixt

    Challenge Charlie proposal:

    * split or splits ( don’t know if that’s right but u know dancers do that)
    * Make a sandwich of everything in your kitchen.
    * Try to say “you just have the………) on like ten different languishes. ( swedish :D )
    * wax your legs
    * Eat a water melon whit out your hands.

    P.S Fun science is awesome, now I don’t think it sucks so much!

    My english isn´t great, so sorry if the writting isn´t correct!

    I’m learning Espanyol and I am no where as good at it then you are at English!:)

  • Dancerofhope14

    As you are, I just made an English mistake there!:D

  • Ams

    Hi Charlie,
    hahaha, I’m in the United state to learn English, but after watching your videos, I really like your British accent,,! :-). Maybe I’ll study university in Britain ;-D.
    I think your roommate is lucky Or by British, your flatmate!.
    Keep going and do your best charlie.

  • mrs.coollike

    i wanna be Mrs.coollike LOL
    thanx for reading

  • KeShaOfTheFlies

    Hey Charlie :)

    Well to be honset, I think your idea to only create a video that A) You are proud of and B) You do at your own pace is an awesome idea. If making a video on a scheduled time takes away from the pleasure of you making them, then what’s the point? We’re all your fans so we are behind every decision that you think will better you, so don’t fuss about us! I remember there was a point where on my own blog I was trying to update nightly, and some weeks I did it with no problem (what an eventful week right?) but most times I struggled to write anything.

    I guess my point is, I’m behind you on this, and I understand how you feel ^-^

    Have a nice day and, I should probably get off and get ready for school now! (it’s six in the morning here)


  • JustMe

    Charlie….I’m from Zimbabwe…hence, this made me smile :)

  • Andreea

    Last night I was watching a documentary about the Earth and the Moon and ”stuff” and I involuntary said ”Hey! I know that!” and then I reminded ” Oh, Charlie was talking about it in his latest video!”.
    Keep making videos, especially with since theme, Charlie! (I know you are going to do it for a long time, but I just wanted to tell you )

    P.S. Watching your British videos has improved my English for IELTS Listening Task! Thank you!
    P.P.S. I know this is one of the most boring comments in the world and maybe you’re not going to read this very soon or you will never read this, but I just felt the need to tell/write you…:)

  • maria


  • Hi there!

    If it isn’t to much to ask of (of course you don’t have to do this), but I was wondering if you could bring your “I Look Better in Purple” and your “You Just Need to Love Yourself” T-shirts back onto your site. I just found out about this a while ago and I thought the shirts were really cool, but I was too late for them. Thankyou :)

  • Cyberwoman

    I couldn’t help but notice the Scott Pilgrim books in your cupboard. :D I love Scott Pilgrim! Also… YAY! I’ve found somebody who is a bigger Doctor Who nerd than ME!

  • aderynh_x

    love this video. but about the quality over quantity thing… how about you upload one amazing video a week AND a quick vlog. we’re your fans charlie. we don’t care how boring your life is at the moment, we want to know whats going on. a week is just too long to wait. :)

  • Alexluke

    I spent a school year in Paso Robles, CA, so i guess i learned a lot. I loved the expirience, something i will never forget for sure!
    I´m sure your spanish is just fine!
    Un saludo!
    Thanks by the way!

  • Saoirse

    i love all your recent videos! i feel like i could watch them over and over again and not get bored =] i feel like some youtubers do exactly like what you said, they just put up videos for the money and not pay attention to the quality. i think that your videos have deffinietly gotten better over time i would deffinietly watch anything you’ve made. Can’t wait to see your first short film :D

  • Jajrock98

  • Cazaca

    Hi, Charlie!
    I am learning English and your videos is a great help. I like the speed of your speech ‘course it’s a challenge for me as an English learner :) why don’t you make a video of London sightseeing, something funny/coollike of the famous London sightseeings? :)
    thanks so much,
    all the way from Kazakhstan

  • Joliecommemoi

    Hello, Charlie!
    I’ve just read your status on twitter. Make a part of ”the new/next” video with you being sick saying whatever you want (but don’t force yourself, do as much as you can). I bet you’re funny! ^^

    Take care!

    Hi, I’m a fan from Portugal. I just like to said that see your videos is a pleasure to me and I hope you continue to make more and more, because you are really good. I spend great part of my time to watch and read what you do, and it’s really amazing! Well, although I’m just more one fan, I really needed to tell you this… Please continue to amuse the people because in my opinion, you were born for this! :) Many congratulations! ( I really hope you understand what I wrote :p)

  • Rebecca

    Hello Charlie. Random new fan I am :D
    Have you ever heard the song The Cha Cha Slide by Casper?
    If not go listen, I dare you to get all your buddies including Alex to make a video doing the dance for it. ;]

  • Jolie

    It’s been 3 weeks! This is neither quantity nor quality…
    Don’t get me wrong, but you have a lot of watchers and subscribers who are waiting for your new video. I don’t know how important it is for you, but this is my advice… You can do much more!

    Charlie, you inspired me to create my own wall of stuff. It’s not as cool as your’s, but it’s a start! :)

  • Turreh

    I have that SAME alarm clock. And it almost NEVER wakes me up >.< Even after putting it across the room so I have to get up to turn it off :(

  • Jamie Von Raesfeld

    i swear my friend is the girl version of you, you guys even look similar!! it kinda weird…

  • Emie

    are you supposed to keep bread in the fridge?

  • theninjaoctopus

    Just the other day I was thinking of how it would be so epic if you made videos more often, then I read this. I changed my mind :)
    I think it’s awesome that you stand by what you believe in and don’t let the fact that you get paid for your videos get in your way, or change you in any way. That’s really inspiring to me ^_^

    I’ve only just discovered that I can communicate with you despite my lack of a youtube account soooo bare with me here…

    I just wanted to let you know that your videos have gotten me through some really low days, and if my friend had never shown me any of them… I might have been an emo child by now :P (not that I have anything against emo people, I mean they’re really cool)…

    Someday I will come to London for the sole purpose of finding you and shouting “I FOUND YOU CHARLIE” and then run away, so if some random brown child comes up to you and does that without waiting for their awesome “I found Charlie” button, that’s me ;)

    PS: you’re just awesome. did you know that? well, you are.

  • Hgarox

    ummm… so here’s how its gonna go. i think you are incredibly funny and hilareous (pardon the horrific spelling), BUT i don’t want to sound like EVERY OTHER PERSON that leaves you comments saying (in imitation of a high squeaky voice) “OMG I LOVE YOU CHARLIE SOOO MUCH”, or since i don’t usually bother with caps, something negative or random. I do think you are totally awesome, but i don’t necessarily love you because i’m in middle school (from your videos, i think that is what you brits call secondary school), and it’s more like a hilariosity infatuation. Not that i don’t think you wouldn’t be totally fun to hang out with in real life… but i don’t think that will ever happen because i will probably never see you in real life because i am all the way in america… *sigh* god bless the USA, and all that… (did i spell america right? because those little red line thingies are underneath it and it would be really sad if i spelled my own country wrong…) anyways my point is that me and my friends really think you are incredibly cool and funny and even though my life pretty much sucks right now (money issues and my mom isn’t well… no dad…) i find the time and energy to watch your videos on my tiny little ipod in the middle of the night and try to not wake my mom up by laughing hysterically… anyways the whole point of this is that your videos are incredibly amazing and hilareous and i love watching your videos. your webcasts even reach small towns in northern jersey. anyways, i hope you took time to read this loooong comment, and that you don’t pity me too much, because my life is pretty good, even though i made it sound a whole lot worse. i hope to comment more on your blogs sometime in the nearby future, because, frankly, i enjoy it. i might someday just roam the streets of london, looking for a now shorter-haired charlie so that i can scream “I FOUND YOU!” at the top of my lungs and get my cool “i found charlie button” and wear it with pride. You are really, incredibly cool.
    P.S. I’m NOT a stalker or anything…
    P.P.S. Your american accent was absolutely terrible.

  • hoda pedramrazi

    Charlie do what you can do , and do it completely and well done because thats the person that you are. We always support you and your videos. maybe at the first sight we are just typed words but we do exist for supporting you and your cool ideas.

    …ok people don’t care about it… Yes but no! Vive la France et le camenbert!
    Ok ok, this question is a little patriotic (ah English!)

  • Taylor

    Okay Charlie, So I’m a little bummed because my friends and I took a trip to London and Bath this last summer but I didn’t even know about your videos at the time… so baisically I had to opportunity to meet my now favorite blogger but didn’t…. huh… anyways, your videos always make me laugh and I hope you continue to make them!

  • Daniel Ritchie (DR)

    Amazing video, and I can tell you witch episode of Doctor Who that monster’s from. It’s an Axon from the Claws of Axos, in 1971.

  • Emily Harvey

    Crib 2 made me laugh so much! I would give anything for you to properly show me around your flat!
    If you don’t have the time to do a video a week then don’t feel pressured to do it! YouTube is about having fun and showcasing work that you took the time to make from scratch so even though I anxiously await your videos, I’m not mad that you maybe missed out a week cause somewhere down the line you have to make time for just relaxing!!
    Much love <3 x x

    “I’m on here to try and make stuff that I’m really proud of.”
    Does hardly ever making videos make you proud? Does never acknowledging your viewers by simply replying to comments, or even reading them for all we know, make you proud?

  • Willish

    The best way of asking that Charlie try to better acknowledge his viewers would not be through telling him that he is making a mistake in what he is doing, we can all see that Charlie McDonnell is doing a greatjob with having a youtube account and posting these fun videos to all his fans, and there is not that much reason to be questioning the way that he is doing this as it is all his own life, and some things take a lot of time and although it is not always possible to see that he is paying any attention to what these people here are saying, we should be greatful for the fact that he is trying to improve the way he is working and hope for even better videos in the future. Personally I would be thanking Charlie for all the hard work and hope he does continue to do well with the creation and effort put into all of these videos for us, so why don’t we try to see the positive aspects of what he has said fo us here. That’s all :)

  • Eduardo

    Hey mate! You are good. You should work on tv shows.

  • Claire

    You should be glad he makes videos at all. If he tried to reply to all comments and questions I think he would have no time for a life OR making videos. So I hope you’re happy about what a fool you have just expressed yourself to be.

  • Livvy

    Helllloooooo. Just wanted to say that I really respect what your doing… even if it is just making videos, but they are funny and definately worth watching.

    I’d really like to start making some videos of my own on youtube (even though I have no camera… fail!), but I’ll see how it goes. Keep doing what your doing, its great! :)

  • Anastasia

Stay on board with the videos, they never fail to impress me. You are such an inspiration to me, and keep doing what you love! xoxo

    how do you edit them? tell us your secret!!!! x)
    well, also, you know, you’ve heard it a million times probably, but actually you ARE cute, in fact, you are REALLY cute, so would you try to believe it at least?? ;)

  • Lize

    It’s actually pretty funny how many people (mostly girls) say that you’re cute and handsome and that they want to live in the UK and marry you. That is probably a bit of an overreaction, but I can’t blame them though. You are cute, that is a fact. And I enjoy your videos very very much, so I also hope you will keep on posting until you’re 30. That being said, I’m going to London in two months time and I will be looking for you (if you’re not in America then yet) and I hope you have some of those ‘I found Charlie’ badges left, because I want one! See you then, or in your next video! :)

    Hey guys, just saying, these comments are really creepy. 

  • Sophia:D

    Hey, I’m Sophia fron Ukraine and I love your videos!!!! I wanted to say thank you because it’s not that easy to make a perfect video like yours. Thank you for making us smile. You are a wonderful guy. 


  • Marine

    Hey Charlie, I’ve just discovered your videos and I had a good laugh watching them until 4 in the morning or so (less funny when I woke up at 7.30…). And I wanted to say, I think you’re absolutely right to make quality your priority and I’m looking forward to seeing the results of this in your future projects! Oh, and I quite like that you don’t try as many disgusting things as you used to (drink ketchup? really?). Anyway, well done! ;-) 

  • Who wants to see Charlie’s appartment in person?? I do (: hahaha just kidding! I loved Amy Pond in the living room.

  • Court

    hey who else noticed the fingerless gloves? the ones he complaind about getting a few years back!

  • ImiO

    Head and Shoulders shampoo…. nice :P by the way… i think all your videos are amazing and you should feel no pressure to make them all the time. quality over quantity is what makes them so special! 

  • Lauren

    I noticed the work put into the filming and editing of this video, I really liked it. Keep it up Charlie. Maybe you could make a video teaching us about using certain effects. My uncle gave me every Adobe program you could think of (including After Effects) and I have absolutely NO idea how or where to begin!

  • Kate

    hello Charlie, Mr Shiny is awesome by the way:) i love how accepting you are of other peoples methods of You Tubing, it’s refreshing to be able to watch someone so layed back! please don’t over work your self and just stay as you are because you are brill! i love your style of You Tubing because it makes me feel special, in a way. You make me proud to be English:)

    And it turns out you moved out of that flat and into a big house with Alex, and I’m pretty sure you never actually finished Wall of Stuff 2.0 :)

  • aSparkleNerd

  • Cohocrules

    That house is actually pretty small. i don’t know anything about flats besides from what i have learned in “the curiouse incident of the dog in the night-time” thats a book by the way.

  • Anzii :)

    I live in Wales. I still feel a bit left out. :-/

  • Alessia

    Hi :)
    Because you have people who look at your video all over the world I have here a challenge for you: make a video speaking different languages, Italian, French, Spanish, German and any other language you want ;)
    and of course with subtitles in English to be understood by all.

    DOCTOR WHO FAN FILM Hello Charlie! How are you doing today? I saw your Doctor What video and it’s fantastic. I am the chapter leader for the new movie coming out at the end of the year, called the Doctor Who 2.0 Origins, and I think you’d be great in becoming involved in this film. This movie if being shot around the globe, England being one of the shooting locations. If you’d be interested in being involved in the film, contact me. We are looking for actors, actresses, models, set designer, stunt choreographer, chapter leader in England (which means that you gather people from England, who want to be involved as well”. This is a paid position, and if you have an assistant, they will be paid as well. If you are chapter leader, you have a guaranteed speaking role in the movie. You can ‘friend’ me on Facebook, Connie Braun, and I can be identified wearing a purple shirt, with a yellow lay on my neck. This is a feature-length film. We are excited about this movie and would welcome your involvement. We begin auditions in a few months, with shooting to begin a few months after that. Have a great day! Email me at Take care and I look forward to hearing from you soon! Connie Lee Braun-Thorman
