Fortunately, We Have YouTube Feb 18 , 2015
While Technology has received its fair share of criticism over the years for its part in job obsolescence and reclusive behaviour, one cannot deny that it has made the world a smaller place...and in a good way.
This year marks its tenth anniversary…and countless average Joes & Janes have risen to stardom simply by uploading their talent for the world to view.
Personally, I like the fact that it offers just another stage to showcase our province’s local talent…and with that in mind, I encourage you to take a moment and view the YouTube video of local band Fortunate Ones who are currently on their The Bliss album release tour. (They’ll hit Holy Heart Theatre in St. John’s this Friday).
And if you’re looking for a local laugh… might I suggest Grand Falls-Windsor native Deana Stagg-Newell’s YouTube rants about all things ordinary through her fictitious character “Teresa”. Her distorted look, sound and viewpoint are so popular that her Facebook page has garnered over 15 600 likes. In this video, “Teresa” gives us her take on the formidable Fortunate Ones:

i''ve seen fortunate ones on "out of the fog" and i was quite impressed with how well their voices blended, their singing and musical talents, etc. they are certainly on their way to the next round of award nominations. the video is just wonderful! it never ceases to amaze me how much talent we have in nl, both in the arts and in sports. god bless!

youtube is great.i find it very useful to listen to older music such as many of your great ions on sunday melodies.and also to observe people in different occupations and to see other countries as well as historical information and whatnot.there is a wealth of entertainment and information on youtube for sure.however there is also a whole lot of nonsense posted there as well.there is certainly a tremendous amount of undiscovered talent out there,and the fortunate one''s are a great local group.there are also countless characters like teresa on youtube as well.she is so funny,and i am a better guitar player than eric clapton.youtube is fantastic though,something for everyone there for sure.i also particularly enjoy the videos with tons of information from experts explaining how the moon landings were faked.amazing how they pulled that off.something funny happened on the way to the moon.check it out.
