Eddie Ruth has been compared to Mahalia Jackson because of her unique deep alto voice that resonates with emotion conviction and style: consequently Mahalia Jackson was one of her favorite gospel artists. When asked about the meaning of the song “Too Close ToThe Mirror”, she replied; “The song is really a conversation between me and God and I’m trying to explain to him my inadequacies by saying that I’m Too Close To The Mirror to see what he sees in me; And why he keeps blessing me in spite of my missteps and imperfections”. The message has definitely struck a chord with the masses because the response has been tremendous. Having roots that are deep in the delta tradition and one of the most distinguished and anointed voices to come alone in quite sometime, Eddie Ruth Bradford ushers in a new, fresh, traditional sound on her debut album, “Too Close To the Mirror”. “I love all gospel music, but my special love and my anointing is for traditional gospel music”, states Eddie Ruth.

This site provides links to random videos hosted at YouTube, with the emphasis on random.
The original idea for this site actually stemmed from another idea to provide a way of benchmarking the popularity of a video against the general population of YouTube videos. There are probably sites that do this by now, but there wasn’t when we started out. Anyway, in order to figure out how popular any one video is, you need a pretty large sample of videos to rank it against. The challenge is that the sample needs to be very random in order to properly rank a video and YouTube doesn’t appear to provide a way to obtain large numbers of random video IDs.

Even if you search on YouTube for a random string, the set of results that will be returned will still be based on popularity, so if you’re using this approach to build up your sample, you’re already in trouble. It turns out there is a multitude of ways in which the YouTube search function makes it very difficult to retrieve truly random results.
So how can we provide truly random links to YouTube videos? It turns out that the YouTube programming interface (API) provides additional functions that allow the discovery of videos which, with the right approach, are much more random. Using a number of tricks, combined some subtle manipulation of the space-time fabric, we have managed to create a process that yields something very close to 100% random links to YouTube videos.

YouTube has faced criticism over aspects of its operations, including its handling of copyrighted content contained within uploaded videos, its recommendation algorithms perpetuating videos that promote conspiracy theories and falsehoods, hosting videos ostensibly targeting children but containing violent and/or sexually suggestive content involving popular characters, videos of minors attracting pedophilic activities in their comment sections, and fluctuating policies on the types of content that is eligible to be monetized with advertising.
