I Need To Ask A Favor

Last Update: November 07, 2015


I just completed a Nostalgia Video of me and my friends from back in the day. It was a labor of love and I know they’re going to enjoy it, but I need to find out if it’s worth watching if you don’t know the people in the video.

The video is a history of the gang I was in as a kid, “the JOKERS” in Brooklyn, NY.

We’re coming up on our 52nd Anniversary (Nov. 16th) and I did my best to pack as much as I could in the video.

I’ve got 100 Views, but not one Comment on YouTube

That’s where the favor comes in from you.

Can you please take a few minutes, watch the video and tell me what you think. If it doesn’t hold your attention can you please tell me where I lost you?

If you liked it hit the LIKE button, and please leave a COMMENT on YouTube. I want to encourage the JOKERS to do the same. But, somebody has lead by example, they're old (like me) and not big on social media.

I’m not promoting my website or selling anything, I just honestly want your opinion and your help.

WARNING: ADULT LANGUAGE & OBSCENE GESTURES

Hey it’s a bunch of Punks from Brooklyn… what would you expect?

Here’s the link to the YouTube video.

Thanks in Advance and I Owe You!

I like it, Phil. The music brought back really good memories of my yester-years. But when it gets to "today" --- I think that's just for you and your friends.

It looks like it took a very long time to put all that together. You probably have a niche here! :-)

Cathy, that's when I thought it would lose folks.

Somebody mentioned to me a while back that my niche should be about me and the whole Brooklyn experience. I couldn't figure out how to have enough content, that's still true.

Thank you for looking.

Enough content? Are you kidding? That's amazing, Phil! I'm guessing you're too close to it and that's why you can't see the forest for the trees.

You've got tons and tons of content ... just the video alone would give you dozens and dozens of blogs.

People like real life stories ... that's why reality TV does so well.

So seriously, please give it some more thought. You and your friends have stories to tell...

There is a link in your post, but for some reason it didn't work. Most people who were not a part of your group would feel detached from everything. It seams for not if your own won't watch and like, it seems that is where you would get the most pleasure.

Best

BTW we were all street corner huggen punks back in the day. LOL

William, it seems the link worked for some, but not for others. I'm guessing it might be where you're from.
My concern was that the video wouldn't hold the interest of somebody that wasn't in the group.
Still I would have preferred you being able to see it first.

Do you have a video? 8^)

Sorry Phil, I don't have a video. I was born in Bayonne NJ, I lived in Coney Island on Surf Ave a block away from Nathan's for 3 years back in the 70's.
