Blog: Favourite YouTube Videos (Volume 132)

In this volume of my favourite YouTube videos, we try not to die in space, get a little angry and then drive off down a rainbow road.

  • First, Belated Media talks about Alien and Aliens and the (very different) ways in which they're both excellent. I like Alien better (it has more SPACE in it), but rewatching this video I just want to watch them both again.
  • Next, Pomplamoose is too mad to watch 30 Rock tonight. But they just need a little time to cool down.
  • Finally, let's end by sailing off into the skies with Mr. Smooth McGroove singing the Mario Kart 64 Rainbow Road Theme a capella. This is one of those songs with a really specific association in my head, of a sleep over with a friend and racing on this course when we were super tired and falling a sleep. Definitely a great song to relax to (but maybe not drive to, if you're going to fall asleep).

Blog: Favourite YouTube Videos (Volume 131)

In this volume of my favourite YouTube videos, we talk about the web then go back in time with two very nostalgic video game themes.

  • First, Michael from VSauce wants to talk about how and why we surf the Web (and why the web is not the net).
  • Next, Caitlin and Vaughan take a trip back in time with the Menu Theme from Wolfenstein 3D.
  • Finally, Mr. Smooth McGroove straps into his Ar-Wing and takes us back to the SNES Star Fox. Goood luck!

Blog: Favourite YouTube Videos (Volume 130)

In this volume of my favourite YouTube videos, it's music day. Wake up, suck up and chill!

  • First, get up, and don't forget to wake Pomplamoose up before you Go!
  • Next, Brentalfloss flosses up the theme to Luigi's Mansion. So grab your vacuum and get to work (although I don't recommend listening to the cover if you're planning to play the game in the near future, the ear worm quotient is ... high).
  • Finally, CalebElijah plays "Sub Zero Snow Field" from Seiken Densetsu 3, which I think may be one of the most beautiful pieces of music in video games. Certainly the cover is absolutely gorgeous.

Blog: Favourite YouTube Videos (Volume 129)

In this volume of my favourite YouTube videos, we pull out or magnets, bang our air drums and then try to catch them all.
