I have Tourette's, I was ticcing and sometimes my tics make me laugh, so you may see traces of mirth. That being said ... enjoy.
Why I Did It
I would wake up singing and go to bed singing. There were karaoke songs blasting out of the house all day every day for months. I ran the local karaoke club in my village (still do sometimes). I'm always the first to get up and belt out a song, a true believer in what I like to think of as 'the spirit of karaoke': that fearless, "I don't care if I am a crap singer I'm gonna sing!!" attitude.
Anyway, whilst in the grip of my karaoke obsession, I had a bad tic day. To fully understand the impact of an obsession, please read 'Special topic'.
I was frustrated, I wanted to continue singing, so I fired up the laptop, searched on Youtube and found a karaoke version of an Elvis song I liked, so I sang it a couple of times, and thought, I think I'll capture this for posterity, so on went the webcam and I recorded my tic infested version of the Elvis Presley classic 'You Are Always On My Mind'.
I watched it back and thought 'that's a really weird juxtaposition, I think I'll upload that to 'Youtube'. The response was slow, but positive. In fact, very positive. I was surprised and it stimulated the idea of doing a series of videos.
