Where Are My Stats, YouTube? (Friday Features)
When I checked the MPL YouTube Channel for our current top ten viewed videos, I expected to see some statistics. Instead, I saw this.

The abbreviation "n/a" (not applicable) indicates that YouTube is yet again experiencing viewership counter problems. This seems to happen A LOT. At least the current top ten videos are listed, and some shifting is readily apparent.
Miss Jaymi's (Wild Thang's) "Animal Alphabet Song" video is currently atop the current viewership charts, and her "I-P Alphabet Song" video presently ranks #3. Some newcomers to the top ten list include our book trailers for "Ready Player One," by Ernest Cline; "Zombie Survival Guide," by Max Brooks; and "Fahrenheit 451," by Ray Bradbury.
Once the YouTube folks get the counter problem fixed (IF and when--just saying), we'll have some numbers to crunch. Actually, dry cat food crunches better.
Let's take a look at some of those "newcomer" book trailers, shall we?

P.S. We continue our musical closers for Friday Features with songs that have numbers in the titles or lyrics. (Have we actually been doing that? I can't remember.) Here is "30 Days in the Hole," by Humble Pie, from the LP Smokin' (1972).
