NEW NARROW SHOW: Just In Time For Easter!

Thursday, December 29th, 2011

Dar es Salaam By now, probably most of you are all sick and tired by now of hanging out with your families. The judgements, the awkward silences, the chore of having to figure out relatively benign things to do together?

The good news is, you won’t have to do it again until the spring! You have the long cold winter, the anticipation of the uncelebrated holiday of January 23rd, known as the ‘most depressing day of the year’, when all your holiday shopping credit card bills are due!

Fortunately, considering how long it takes us to make these Narrow Show’s, its egg references will be somewhat seasonally relevant for a good 4 months! Did we plan this on purpose–of course not– further there’s no Easter reference directly whatsoever! The truth is, we never really know when these things are coming, but since we’ve got this one out before the big EGG Holiday we hope you’ll enjoy it over and over again over some Cadbury Creme Eggs(which should be out now already?)

The Narrow Show: Egg, Cicada, Secada

From the entire Schmooru Community, thanks for a GREAT YEAR!

Schmooru Network Breaks Top 5 of All Youtube Partners!

Wednesday, December 7th, 2011

Last week, schmooru, through our network of independent distribution partners took the #4 spot on Comscore’s listing of youtube partner channels by unique viewers. What this means is after 2 and half years in the trenches–with no bags of money or Hollywood connections, the little network that could, built up by a community of professional creatives is breaking through.

What makes us even more proud, is the programming we’ve been able to distribute over our network. For instance, since its inception, our Art as Life project, inspired by the continental philosophies of Martin Heidegger, with the intention of bringing art to the masses, has been viewed over 30 million times.

Ask Dr. Esther’s midwestern mental health series has covered serious topics ranging from Depression, Marital Infidelity, How to Find True Love and of course, How to Have Good Sex, among others!

Basically, what we’re saying here is, along with the help of our viewer community, we’ve been able to get this hard fought #4 spot–beating out some serious players & interests, through hard work and doing it our way. We consider this email list our ‘inner circle’ & we thank you for your ongoing support.

We’re not finished yet, in fact–we’re just getting started. In time for Christmas expect an All New Narrow Show on the “Incredible Edible Egg” & Dr. Esther explains how to get out of the closet.
