A number of years ago a story appeared about a young boy who was a piano prodigy. Something in his life happened and he spent decades in mental institutions---until someone discovered that he wasn't properly diagnosed and should not have spent a good portion of his life confined. On being released, he returned to playing the piano and even went on a world tour. The only problem was that he wasn't very good. Still, he continued giving performances until, finally, a critic made a fair, but very critical review of his playing.
When Petrolicious presents a video it is presenting a public performance which, in turn, invites critical comments both good and bad. While, like our hapless classical pianist, we can praise the fact that the videos are being made and are out there to be viewed, but there comes a time when its also time to say---perhaps because the producers of the videos lack the kind of in-depth knowledge we might expect to be present---that the content is ephemeral and lacking in substance. That said, I hope there's a place in the on-line marketplace for Petrolicious subscribed content. I just don't intend to be there.
