What youtube channels do you subscribe to? I never used to watch youtube channels, but the last few years I've realized there is some very interesting content being uploaded andI regularly watch about a dozen channels.
On of my favorites is Steve Wallis' channel. He does stealth camping, cheap camping and other oddball outdoor adventures, like the boat he built with his sidekick Crazy Neighbor. Admittedly not a bushcrafter, he is just a genuine average guy with a very earnest personality who loves camping.
The Cat Lady Van. I watch several channels about people living their nomadic life, but this is one of my favorites. She's awesome, just traveling with her cat and living her life on the road.
Two Wheels, Big Life. A married couple living as motorcycle nomads. I envy them.
My subscriptions are very eclectic and varied. But hands down, this is my favourite YT channel. Nothing brings me a smile or cheers me up quicker than this wonderful family. Watching how these kids have grown as musicians over the last year and a bit has been a joy and marvel.
Bellamy (the daughter) has gone from just dancing to doing some minor backing vocals and harmonies and playing keys etc.
Beckett is now a proper drummer, in my opinion. he isn't even a teen yet but he has amazing feel and a beautiful style.
Cash is the oldest and is the multi-instrumentalist who plays bass, acoustic and electric guitar, keyboards...
I love how much joy the family express doing this. The Kids are having fun, the dad Colt is so encouraging and loves jamming with the kids... What an amazing environment.
Last night's song, Atlantic City
And some of my personal favourites:
The Future's So Bright
Won't Get Fooled Again (1st and only take... the kids nailed it)
Low Rider (Brilliant!)
Miss You (That little Charlie Watts shuffle Beckett does...)
A recent subscription that I'm fascinated with. The Malibu Artist uses a drone to capture footage of mostly Great White Sharks. I find his videos very peaceful and relaxing with occasional moments of tension.
Professor Of Rock is a great channel. The Professor covers anything and everything in classic rock and pop.
Ghost Town Living chronicles the life of a guy who's been living in an abandoned mining town.
Recollection Road is a channel that reminds me of the Do You Remember thread on Greasy Lake. Vintage Americana.
Oh goodness. I subscribe to so many YT channels it's ridonk. At least half of them are drumming-related, so I'll just post a few of the others.
Jomboy Media--I haven't followed baseball since last century, and yet this damn guy's analysis is so spot on and so entertaining that I watch everyone of his offerings--and, seriously, his lipreading it outstanding:
The Off Camera Show--Sam Jones is one of the two best interviewers working today, and he gets big names to dig deep. This is not a great example of that but who doesn't love Jason Sudeikis?
Rick Beato is a jazz guitarist and bassist who has written and produced a #1 hit and his breakdowns of what makes songs great can be sublime, 'cuz he's got the technical knowledge behind various modes and theories and history and whatnot but at heart remains a fan who sometimes just geeks out:
In Deep Geek—because JRR Tolkien, that's why.
Dust is a channel for original sci-fi shorts. The quality varies a bit but is never less than good and sometimes stellar. (As it were.)
Simon Whistler hosts at least three or four YT channels, most of which I follow, and I may like one of them--Megaprojects--even more, but this was first in the queue, so I'm going with Biographics.
Smalin animates sheet music to some of the greatest classical compositions ever--kinda like the very beginning of Fantasia.
These two can play and they can sing and upload a new cover pretty much every Sunday. I love Reina's voice and Toni has become one of my favorite guitarists.
Adam Neely is a monster jazz bassist but his channel focuses on some of the most interesting musical questions and analysis I've ever heard, including the surprisingly thorny question of "what key is 'Sweet Home Alabama' in?"
Secret Base, which does deep dives on sports topics, such as a single game-winning shot.
Great Art Explained in 15 Minutes which does exactly what it says oh my god oh so well.
And finally Patrick Willems who does great analysis of various cinematic topics, such as What Makes a Great Car Chase, or the What Happened to Terrence Malick?
