YouTube Recommendations Thread

    I thought a thread on YouTube Subs would be useful for people to share and argue about what they're into.

    So first of all the obvious one.

    Red Letter Media:

    Film review and feature show with occasional gaming stuff. This one is great mainly for the chemistry of the crew and the fact that they don't shout all the time. Usually pretty thoughtful insight too.

    The Ghostbusters vodka one was my jumping on point and we'll worth a giggle.

    Wha' Happened:

    A post mortem show on some of the very biggest gaming bombs. Pretty well researched as far as I can tell and equally not attention seeking like the RLM team.

    Middle8:

    Pretty cool music mini docs


    Not subs but great vids:

    Fleetwood Mac Live 1982. Worth it just to watch the drummer.

    Talking Heads Stop Making Sense 1984

    Have at it

    I like Rick Beato's "What Makes This Song Great?" series.

    It's a bit (ok, very) muso. But I can easy lose an hour to them.

    I really like this LeMMiNo video on Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.
    It's all stuff you've probably heard in bits and pieces when the news developed, but it's a nice recapitulation of what we now, and the animations and maps give you a better idea of the search area. Channel covers other mysteries too, like the Dyatlov Pass.

    @RelaxedMikki That sounds right up my street. Was hoping for some muso recommendations, thanks!

    Kiwami Japan

    A mute Japanese man makes working kitchen knives out of things that are not metal. Plastic bottles, chocolate, potatoes... he made a knife out of pasta and then after chopping vegetables with it HE COOKED AND ATE THE KNIFE WITH CREAM SAUCE.

    That is actually really amazing. Speaking of Japan stuff, most of the classic Zatoichi samurai films and tv series are available on yourtube (sic) for free. I love ‘em.

    Great suggestions guys. Yes, even Rick rolled. Sort of.

    I need to see this chef dude

    Okay Boomer

    @fontgeeksogood

    Beato certainly likes his early 90s grunge bands. For every Tom Petty analysis you have to accept two Alice in Chains.

    He is more Gen X than boomer, I reckon...

    Let’s see...

    For Let’s Plays, I enjoy Game Grumps, but am aware they’re not everyone’s cup of tea. Find a Game Grump compilation and you should be able to work out if it’s your thing before diving into the back catalogue.

    Also on my subscribe list...

    Binging with Babish - a chef attempts to recreate food seen on films and tv... like the Crabby Patty and Homer Simpson’s Patented Space Age Moon Waffles.

    Hot Ones - guests are interviewed while eating progressively hotter chicken wings (or cauliflower, if they prefer). God bless Maisie Williams. She was in a lot of pain but made it to the end.

    Liziqi - this is just beautifully produced videos of a young woman living off the land in rural China, using traditional crafting and cooking. It’s the most relaxing thing you can find on YouTube.

    Botchamania - When pro wrestling goes wrong, set to 8-bit chiptunes. Probably helps to have a basic knowledge of wrestling going in.

    I second this. In return, I'd like to recommend Vox's Earworm series: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Ci5XTpPq94&list=PLJ8cMiYb3G5fyqfIwGjH2fYC5fFLfdwW4

    Great idea for a thread this. YouTube does not make it easy to discover quality new content.

    Red Letter Media is still my favourite channel, but others I frequently watch are:

    Mauler - in depth film analysis
    The Critical Drinker - drunk film analysis
    Jim Sterling
    David Stewart - videos on writing and many other subjects
    Marty Music - well demonstrated guitar teachings
    Ozzy Man Reviews - light-hearted comedic videos on different things
    Ashens - retro tech and junk reviews
    Lessons From The Screenplay - film analysis
    Nerdwriter - film analysis
    The Histocrat - very well researched videos on history
    Extra Credits - breezy videos on gaming, history, literature, and other things
    exurb1a - random & funny videos on many different subjects... A little out there
    DidYouKnowGaming? - interesting factoids on gaming
    Linus Tech Tips - tech videos, although videos are starting to become too frequent and vapid
    TED - needs no introduction

    A bit late to the party, but I recently stumbled across "BeardMeatsFood". The man is a fucking animal, also I'm a bit jealous because I'm not allowed to eat like that anymore.

    I don't have masses of subs and mostly rely on the subs I do have to populate my recommended videos list. Currently watch:

    CohhCarnage - Gaming
    Ashens - Random shit reviews
    Barry Lewis - Kitchen stuff/cooking
    Alex Hefner - Music reaction videos (alledgedly first time listening, but I'm calling shenanigans on that) mostly use to see what I fancy listening to in the office and occasionally discover stuff I've never heard of, today for example I heard Lindsay Stirling for the first time and sge is awesome.
    Frog Leap Studios - Because who doesn't love Leo
    Movies Explained For - Not as funny as they used to be.


    And that's about it.

    Curious Droid - good science/space based explainer videos on interesting subjects

    Ishitani Furniture - japanese man makes some beautiful furniture ably assisted by his dog and filmed by his wife. Notable as a woodworking channel for not being introduced by a guy saying 'WHAT UP GUYS' and 'SMASH THAT LIKE BUTTON'

    Andy's Hobby Headquarters - Lovely man makes scale model kits in his own hobby shop in USA and talks through the steps and does reviews etc.

    Herons Bonsai - good bonsai tips and generally nice videos on tree care.

    Mr Sunday Movies & podcast The Weekly Planet

    Probably my favourite of the Youtubes. Two Aussie comic fans talk about movies. Often comic book movies, but a bit of everything really. Often hilarious. They've a great series called Caravan of Garbage where they rip on something old which was shit.

    I recommend Cobra Kai seasons 1 and 2. The sequels to the Karate Kid films. It's an amazing show and worth premium.
