She's made some fantastic French tunes for me and I thought that throwing one into this video about the d'Orsay Museum in Paris would be well worth it! Thanks to her!
My name is Jay Swanson - I'm an American writer living in Paris on an artist visa and hoping to make the city of light my home base - at least for the foreseeable future. I write science-fiction and fantasy, vlog daily, and love pizza a little too much.

How long have you lived in France? On and off for over two years.
What do you miss most about ho- NACHOS
You're always talking about living on some ship. WHAT SHIP? - I made a Draw My Life video that explains a lot here:
Where are you from originally? - Pullman, Washington - a small university/agricultural town near Idaho (and yes, the potatoes are amazing).
What do you film with? - I've made a lot of changes recently, but I try to keep my gear list up to date if you want to see what I use and buy some for yourself:
What do you edit with? - Adobe Premiere - it's pretty much all I've ever used since high school.
Aren't you ever freaked out by leaving your camera behind to film yourself? - Yep. But not too badly - I tend to be careful when I do.
Why are you living in #Paris? - Because I've always wanted to; I feel at home here:
Do you speak French? Oui.
You talk a lot about the books you're working on, what are they about? - They're sci-fi (and fantasy) and I've got a decent pitch for you here:
Do you make money off YouTube? - Ha, no. I wish. It took me over 500 videos to make my first total $100 off adsense. I think it will slowly change, but VERY slowly.
I really enjoy your videos, how can I support you? - The easiest and best way to support me is through Patreon, where you can pitch in as little as $1/mo to help me make better videos:
I don't trust this Patreon thing - can I just paypal you? - Here's my ko-fi if that's your thing (and coffee is your game):
But I want to send you something tangible! - I do have a wishlist on Amazon, though it's a bit complicated with the international shipping situation. This is the US one:
And here's the French wishlist:

Musée d'Orsay is the Best Museum to Visit in Paris
Musée d'Orsay is the best museum to visit in Paris and, if you only have time to visit one, this is it. Of course you could spend days on end exploring the countless incredible museums in Paris, but the Musée d'Orsay should be at the top of your list. You hear a lot about the Louvre and might find yourself thinking about the Louvre vs Musée d'Orsay, wondering which is more worthy of your time. While the Louvre is amazing - and it is! - I still recommend visiting the Musée d'Orsay, if you have to choose. Even if you don't consider yourself an art lover, I can almost guarantee you will recognize many of the paintings here. It's the largest collection of impressionist and post-impressionist art in the world (from 1848 to 1914) and includes some of the most famous paintings ever by artists like Van Gogh, Renoir, Monet, and Degas. The history and architecture of the building itself is fascinating, too, and you'll be shocked to hear that it was almost demolished. Thankfully it was saved and turned into the world-class museum and art gallery you see today. Watch the video for more information and tips on getting the most out of your visit.

MUSÉE D'ORSAY PARIS 09/20/2019 PARIS 4K
Musee d'Orsay - the best online tour
The Musee d'Orsay, which opened in Paris in Dec. of 1986, has an unusual architectural history. In a bold stroke of innovation, the French converted the abandoned train station Gare d'Orsay into a grand museum which holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1915.
For those of you who haven't yet visited this museum, or already have and wish to revisit it, you have a unique opportunity to do so here. This is the only video on the internet which extensively reveals the interior of the Musee d'Orsay. I was lucky enough to have shot this footage a while ago, BEFORE they stopped allowing amateur photography and videotaping altogether - my pain is your gain.
So kick back, relax, and enjoy this virtual tour of what is surely one of the world's most beautiful museums.
(warning: contains some material which may be considered suitable for mature viewers only.)

The Musée d'Orsay is a museum in Paris, France, on the Left Bank of the Seine.
It is housed in the former Gare d'Orsay, a Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900.
The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography.
It houses the largest collection of impressionist and post-Impressionist masterpieces in the world, by painters including Monet, Manet, Degas, Renoir, Cézanne, Seurat, Sisley, Gauguin, and Van Gogh.
Many of these works were held at the Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume prior to the museum's opening in 1986.
It is one of the largest art museums in Europe.
The museum building was originally a railway station, Gare d'Orsay, constructed for the Chemin de Fer de Paris à Orléans and finished in time for the 1900 Exposition Universelle to the design of three architects: Lucien Magne, Émile Bénard and Victor Laloux.
By 1939 the station's short platforms had become unsuitable for the longer trains that had come to be used for mainline services.
After 1939 it was used for suburban services and part of it became a mailing centre during World War II.
In 1970, permission was granted to demolish the station but Jacques Duhamel, Minister for Cultural Affairs, ruled against plans to build a new hotel in its stead.
The station was put on the supplementary list of Historic Monuments and finally listed in 1978.
The suggestion to turn the station into a museum came from the Directorate of the Museums of France.
The idea was to build a museum that would bridge the gap between the Louvre and the National Museum of Modern Art at the Georges Pompidou Centre.
The plan was accepted by Georges Pompidou and a study was commissioned in 1974.
In 1978, a competition was organized to design the new museum.
In 1981, the Italian architect Gae Aulenti was chosen to design the interior including the internal arrangement, decoration, furniture and fittings of the museum.
Finally in July 1986, the museum was ready to receive its exhibits.
It took 6 months to install the 2000 or so paintings, 600 sculptures and other works.
The museum officially opened in December 1986 by then-president François Mitterrand.
