[VIDEO] Living on Youtube

Pete-MK (Elite Donator) posted this on Friday, 3rd April 2020, 22:54

I'm currently physically unable to bring myself to watch or read any news at the moment, and social media has taken a proper back seat, mainly due to the bullshit that gets thrown around on FB even when there isn't a global pandemic going on

So, I've found proper solace in Youtube, and it would appear that content creators have realised this and upped their game a notch. The National theatre are showing recordings of full stage plays. At the moment it's One man, two Guvnors starriing james Corden, which I'm enjoying a lot more than than I thought I would. If they show War Horse i'm not sure the servers would cope.



Jimmy Carr's broadcasting daily quizzes from his home studio. Same suit, no makeup, same hair & teeth. Questions at 6pm, answers at 8. He didn't have to, but he did. There's also live streams popping up more than usual which are happy distractions.

So, to help us get through this when reality's too much, please post your favourite YT finds here. Another one, if you're interested, 6 yeears after Jedi, & 3 years after Aliens, here's Mark Hamill & Bill Paxton in Slipstream.

Lots of stuff catches my eye on Youtube.

I'm often clicking on John Schneider's channel (Bo Duke in Dukes of Hazzard and Papa Kent on Smallville). Whole lot of nostalgia, and he can be mad as a loon.

When it comes to vintage tech, I'm subscribed to Retro Recipes, The 8 Bit Guy, The Spectrum Show, and Technology Connections,  as well as Techmoan and Retro Man Cave, and will occasionally click on LGR or Ashens videos too.

My Mechanics is the most zen channel I know. This Swiss engineer takes junk and restores it to normal, and he films the process in his engineering workshop. Totally fascinating, and turns "I make a new one" into a catchphrase.

Another repair channel which I can zone out to is TronicsFix

And a Youtube channel which captures that early Top Gear feel is Car Throttle, a series of low budget and daft car challenges.

When I feel nostalgic for my student days, I watch an episode of Ox Tales But it's better if you can find the alternative Saban dub as that's funnier.






There's a wodge more that I click on but I'll leave this here, always good...

I enjoy mysterious and ancient and lost history where it does not tie up with current academic thinking. One of the best channels for this is  'PraveenMohan' channel , he is an Indian and his voice takes a bit of getting used to but goes into great detail about forgotten or hidden technology of the ancient builders, like molding rocks, statues, and using machinery to cut stone blocks and even ancient lathes to cut rotational carvings and pillars. He travels India and other countries, and has been a guest on some episodes of 'ancient aliens' TV show.

Didn't think it was worth a thread on it's own, but I've started following the Game Grumps a lot on YT. At first I thought it was just another gaming commentary type channel, but it turns out they're quite the fingers in many baskets group. Apart from the plethora of videos on their channel (and by jiminy. there's a lot), they've also developed a couple of games themselves, Arin has written an audiobook and Dan's lead singer of Ninja Sex Party

Anyhoo, a few years ago they were playing a homebrew NES game called Battlekid, which is insanely difficult at the best of times. Arin got stuck on one particular boss battle, and the ensuing audio was such a rich tapestry, they then asked any animators, professional or otherwise, to animate vignettes from the audio, which they would pick the best and splice together to cover the entire run time. Someone even created an amazing song using samples from the audio which plays over the end credits. I probably watching this once every two days as I'm always finding something new each time. Caution, lots of swearing & legit rage throughout.



And for reference this is the original video from whence the audio was taken
