Blog: Favourite YouTube Videos (Volume 108)

In this volume of my favourite YouTube videos, we face life and death, obsession and the limited resources of language.

  • First, we have Brentalfloss's Zidane to Vivi original song. I was going to say that I don't remember liking the music to Final Fantasy IX so much, but then I realized that (I'm pretty sure) this is 100% original Brentalfloss composition. Yay 100% Brentalfloss composition.
  • Next, Kevin Gisi talks about his obsessions and then invents a British person to read the news... 
  • Finally, Gunarolla was asked to sing a song without repeating words, which he could do without any detectable problem at all...

Blog: Favourite YouTube Videos (Volume 107)

In this volume of my favourite YouTube videos, we accidentally the whole ... food!

  • First, Kevin Gisi tackles the dreaded, I don't know what to make a video about video. As it turns out most issues are complex and there are a lot of ways to look at them. I like the idea of sticking to a schedule (he said as all his deadlines sailed past) because it forces you to keep going and not to get stuck on things, but there's also something to be said for getting things done as well as you can when you get them done. I guess that's why there are two models of Patreon funding.
  • Next a squirrel discusses why there aren't that many squirrel super heroes.
  • Finally, we recently watched AcapellaScience set string theory to Bohemian Rhapsody, but in case you're still looking for nerdy content in the from of incredibly long rock songs, here Pat the NES Punk and Brentalfloss present us with: Nintendohemian Rhapsody.

Blog: Favourite YouTube Videos (Volume 106)

In this volume of my favourite YouTube videos, we get excited about Mars, Star Wars and the Internet!

  • First, on Sci Show, Hank Green gets excited about finding water in the soil of Mars. It's funny then that as I'm posting this, we just discovered that there are flows of liquid water across the surface of Mars. (So you can watch Hank get excited about water on mars again in about 75 more favourites posts. 
  • Next the people at Sincerely Truman, lay down some rules for Mr. Abrams on what's essential to make Star Wars good. I think the rules are pretty good ones, and I'm cautiously optimistic that the new movies will follow these. 
  • Finally, Lauren Fairweather reminds us that the Internet can be really awesome.
