Title: Interesting YouTube videos
Post by: Toonces on July 20, 2021, 08:09:08 PM
Alright, so I thought Steve58 started a thread like this, but I can't find it so here goes. (If I find Steve's thread (did I dream it?) I'll merge them).

I watch a lot of YouTube, and I'm consistently amazed at the interesting stuff you can find on there.  So, with no rules at all other than it has to be interesting, I figured I'd start a thread to consolidate some of our Groghead findings.

Except for these rules:
1.  No overt politics.
2.  No overt religion.

Otherwise, show us those unusual videos you've found.

This one, to start it off, I found from a link on Yahoo's homepage.  This knucklehead has a whole channel of this nonsense, and once you watch one, it's hard to stop.  Kinda like a Lay's potato chip.

Fascinating...

I read a book by the same title, with Werner Goldberg depicted on the cover. That a "Mischling" would be used by the Nazis as an exemplar of the ideal in German and Aryan soldiery is proof, in my opinion, that the universe has a very cruel and peculiar sense of humor.

This song has got way more history than I ever realized...



And of course I have to include the Animals' version.

^One of my favorite songs of all time! The 'video' of the Animals is creepy as hell. Can't put my finger on why. It's always made me edgy. Maybe its because all the band members are staring directly into the camera. I dunno...

You know...you actually look a little like Eric Burdon.

I...I never thought of that. This is getting to be a little more creepy than my usual Wednesday. Must look closer.

Holy f*ck I do look like him! It always bothered me that the drummer didn't spit his gum out too. You're being filmed, man!! Come on.

If I were 25 in 1964 The Animals would have been one of my favorite bands, no doubt. Very modern and ahead of their time.

I had a buddy who did Karaoke at a local bar way back and when I got off work I'd drop by. He knew I loved that song and always spotted me when I walked in and drug me up on stage to sing it with him. It's a tough song to sing sober I can tell you. After a couple of shots, it gets a lot easier, and funnier.  O0

No video Gus. That was so long ago there maybe some clay tablets it's recorded on though. The local bar was much more of a Country & Western type place so we had to add a line about a truck or a dog to keep from having to run for the door.  ;D

You gotta stick with this one a bit, but at the end when you see the pictures this guy comes up with, it's pretty amazing.

I went to his site a while back to buy one, but....they are not cheap.

Alright, you gotta stick with this one for a little while.  But if you're willing to watch it through I think you're going to end up really, really impressed by this guy's ingenuity.  At about 3:30 he starts getting interviewed and discusses his whole system of self-sufficiency.

Well he has a pretty slick shower setup that he says he uses everyday, but...I still don't think I'd be too keen to snuggle with him.

Fascinating video.  He pretty much has figured out a way to beat the system.

This is the best version of this video I've found on YouTube.

(Note: F-4 Blue Angels video, not F/A-18s in the picture)

So, for background, my dad introduced me to this video like 30 years ago.  I used to have it on VHS (for the youngsters, look it up). 

It's a fantastic, old skool video of the ultimate F-4 flying for the Blue Angels.  Pro move: skip ahead about 10 minutes and get to the video; skip to about 15 minutes to get straight to the first airshow.

And 1:39:50 to see what happens when it's fucked up.

I've never seen a video quite like this one.  It puts humanity in perspective.

Spoiler alert: we all die in the end.

But...it's totally worthy of a full watch.

Edit: the author puts the history of the Earth from its beginning to its eventual end into a one-year calendar.  In that time frame, we are literally a blink of an eye; from the start of humans to our (projected) destruction is seconds, within the context of a year's life of the Earth.  I was fascinated throughout.
