Miscellaneous Monday - YouTube Guilty Pleasure

John M Funk Community Leader May 22, 2022

Okay, let’s face it, we have all spent way too much time on YouTube (TikTok more recently for some) at some point- mezmorized by an inane group of videos on various subjects.

So what’s your current guilty pleasure on YouTube?

Mine is #khabaylame - the guy who shows a simple solution to otherwise over engineered ideas. Here’s an example: https://youtu.be/smIkxzIu2vo

What’s yours?!?!

@John M Funk this is a safe place right???

I cannot remember when I came across this channel last year, but it mesmerized me. This YouTuber goes around filming himself unblocking road drains and culverts. I once heard that man is drawn to water because that is where we came from in utero. it’s supposed to be calming and take us back to a time of bliss. Perhaps that is the source of my fascination - but I just can’t not watch when he posts a new video.

This person is a LEGEND! Best YouTuber out there. It is not just great media, he is doing great work!!
Gave him a shout out above even Ozzy Man Reviews and Uncle Roger!! 🤯

It's also mind blowing that one person can achieve this, but a local council or government, whose job it is to clear this up, can not. 🤔 🙇

For as long as there as been YouTube, my personal guilty pleasure as always been one of a paranormal nature...! 👻 😱

Way back in '07 Ghost Adventures crew came to life in a big way with their insane paranormal independent movie on the Sci-Fi channel, which, because many did not have access, found its way to YouTube. Huzzah!
Come 2008 and their full series launched on the Travel Channel and again, no easy access so lots of YouTube.
Nowadays though it's all on Discovery+ and they're doing a good job of limiting YT uploads and I have a D+ subscription; BUT...

That doesn't matter! Because it has given rise to a monster generation of paranormal hunters uploading some of the most insane stuff I've ever seen; and really high quality. There are literally thousands of channels out there dedicated to the craft of ghost hunting, paranormal investigations and more. And how do I stay on top of it all??

NUKE'S TOP 5 of course!!! Boom💥👻 I never, ever miss an episode, and have watched every at least thrice!

My partner recently shared the Kitboga Show channel with me and now it's a guilty pleasure. This guy pretends to be an elderly woman, chatting with scammers to waste their time and frustrate them. It's sad to hear the kinds of threats scammers make but informative and hopefully helpful to potential victims.

I tend to really focus on specific topics and then start going down the rabbit hole on those.

Channels I've really liked/like over the years are:

Things like micro-soldering (watching a guy thru a microscope solder things) and repair stuff: Louis Rossmann 

or food challlenges like Beard meets food but the one I always tend to go back to are my DIY channels.

Some of my favorite ones are I like to make stuff and HackSmith 

Oh and coffee.. James Hoffmann

John M Funk Community Leader May 23, 2022

Yeah, it seems like most people heading down the rabbit holes have to do with DIY topics.  I have used YouTube videos for multiple projects around the house and car.  AND, I tend to watch more videos than I really need to fix the thing.  ;-)

I like motorcycles and cars so I tend to watch channels where they are working on or reviewing motorcycles or cars.  I really enjoy watching bikes and beards because the individuals on the show are pretty funny.

My guilty pleasure is Marcel Vos, a Dutch YouTuber who makes videos about Roller Coaster Tycoon, a game that is over 20 years old.  But it has a good Android app! Ah, the nostalgia....

Goed zo! He is a totally "toppie" vlogger, and RCT is potentially the BEST game of all time.

I have no idea how my crummy laptop was able to run RCT2 back in '02... but it did! I used to cause so much carnage....

Nice memories. Happy days!

There are two things that I use YouTube for:

  • DIY - trying to figure out how to fix something or build something or craft something
  • Woodworking – I love looking at what others are creating and how they are creating it. I subscribe to several channels: Jonathan Katz-Moses, Bourbon Moth, 3x3, Four Eyes

One channel I've been hooked on for some time now is The Kiffness

Super talented dude out of South Africa doing mashups with other artists and animals etc across the interwebs.

The first video that caught me was this 

Then his amazing cat co-labs 

 

Check it out and say goooodbye to a few hours - in a good way!

@John M Funk , thanks for sharing #khabaylame . Really loved the video you shared above. Actually my favourites keep changing so no particular preference but I watch a lot of stand up comedies on youtube. Fluffy and some Indian comedy shows. But I would definitely keep an eye on #khabaylame. :)

I personally like watching the series of A day in the life of ___

Like this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQG6jYy9xto

To have a peek of what other jobs are looking like.

Especially this channel, the host is not bragging about how flexible or amazing the work env it is, but offering the details and comparison of the job function, which is very interesting.

I've been binge watching highlights from Maradona when he was playing in Napoli and Barcelona. Small clips on all his touches at a full game.  

Since he past away all these highlights pop up on my feed.

My guilty pleasure is a guy from Frankfurt called Held der Steine ("Hero of the stones" selling all kinds of brick construction toys in his store and reviewing them (e.g., Lego, BlueBrixx, Cada, Mega Construx). 😄
