Been watching this series lately: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCzC5op3vcVbLkSb1MXgJj1A

unemployedwineguy seems to be a sommelier who reviews the strangest selection of alcoholic drinks. Looking like a younger mix of Mark Goodier and Rik Mayall, on a bed of Frasier-esque music, he's very good at playing his character. I'm enjoying it.

Jomboy Media is mostly of interest if you're into US sport, but he's branching out, and his series of videos with him and a friend breaking down old game shows is a lot of fun. MTV's "Next" gets a deserved kicking here.

So what's with the recent trend of people posting minute long videos with #shorts in the title? I've noticed a few channels i follow doing it.

My assumption is that some people noticed the Youtube algorithm was favouring some short videos, so everyone hopped on it. From the few I see, it's tiny segments from Twitch streams or previous longer videos, with nice clickbait-y titles. The creators make a bit more money for doing no extra work, Youtube make more money by selling ads for these minute-long videos, everyone is happy.

Some guy who does brilliant animations based on real audio and moments etc and the story revolves around that. It's incredible stuff.

Guy at work said I should look at the #shorts because they were booty shorts twerk vids.
He wasn't far wrong, I reckon.

have we done Stealth Camping? friendly Canadian man possibly too old for YouTube career (but doing nicely on the hits!) takes requests for odd places to be camping. Mostly I just like his easygoing vibe. Here he behind a Home Depot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IXlO091nJ1s

^ have seen a few of his. Weird because there isn't really any content and he isn't doing anything dangerous or subversive but I'll watch him for 30 minutes. Oh, here's a little thicket nobody gives a fuck about, I'll try to sleep in it.

Can't believe I've never come across Japanese synchronised walking competitions before.

Isn't that essentially the same as what happens in the intervals of American Football games, minus the brass instruments?

Bad acting compilations are always good fun, but this REALLY tickled me:

Police interview with Jim from Correct Not Political (he's an anti-vaxxer youtuber, but this is irrelevant here) about an altercation he had with a van driver on a country lane in Stevenage. He suffers from Asperger's I believe and I didn't know anything about his politics when it popped up, it's an interesting watch and feels like a short play.
