The YouTube Thread

Post by Eth » Mon Apr 12, 2010 8:04 pm

I prevailed upon Chad (Frumple) to install the capability to include YouTube in our posts mainly so that I could create this thread. If you find something remarkable on YouTube, post it here with an explanation of why YouThink it merits attention. One rule: don't post two things in a row unless it's been a week since someone else posted a video.

This is a sort of meta-video. The creator, Kutiman, created it by finding videos posted by the many talented musicians who present their work on YouTube. The videos generally consisted of a single musician. Kutiman mixed and cut these together to create a song and a music video. He has a bunch of others, but I consider this one to be the best. Enjoy "The Mother of All Funk Chords."

Cool video, Eth.

Oh man, I've been watching way too much stuff on the tubenets lately, some of it on YouTube, so I have a lot of things I could share here. I guess that rule will help prevent me from blowing my load all at once, but SO MANY THINGS to choose from.

There is a series I fumbled across some months back that started off as a comics-themed parody of the "I'm a Mac, I'm a PC" commercials featuring Marvel and DC. As time has passed the focus has become more on this "hero bar" that the characters hang out at, and it continues to get more hilarious as time goes on. It consists of this guy with various action figures playing all the roles, doing all of the male voices himself (and displaying a great vocal range), and pure comedy.

Through means I can only guess at, Rorschach of Watchmen has ended up getting paired with Deadpool, and hilarity ensues:

Something seems wrong, those Youtubes don't load. oh well.

Okay, so this is part 1 of 7 in a review of the Phantom Menace. I'm only posting the first part due to thread rules (I think?) but the others can easily be found. The reviewer has some real good insights and criticisms that really illustrate how poorly the movie was put together.

He also has some weird gimmick about being a serial killer, and apparently that has been building up during his Star Trek movie reviews. I didbn't find it very funny, but I suppose some of you might find it offensive, so be warned. Also, there's a lot of swearing. Oh, and the voice may sound off to begin with, but trust me, it's realy fitting.

Google is turning evil by having me sign onto my google account in youtube instead of my youtube account which I've had for years.
Anyway, dunno why I'm posting this here, but I think it's the best videoclip I've ever seen.

These are all excellent choices. I'd seen the Phantom Menace review (and loved it) but the others are new to me. Very amusing.

I originally saw this next piece in the Field Museum in Chicago. It sparked my lifelong interest in Mayan art and mythology. It's an animated version of the Popol Vuh, the creation myth of the Quiche Maya. All of the images are based on ancient pottery, and the actors are all Guatemalan Mayans. The action doesn't really start until 2:45, so be a little patient. There are several other parts. I really consider the Popol Vuh to the "the Saturday morning cartoon of creation myths."

I suppose I should contribute to this madness.

I had never heard of the Automatic Mario concept until I saw this... and it's damned impressive. The amount of time and effort that must have been spent on it is beyond ludicrous, especially the parts of the image that line up between the 4 screens.

Did you know there's also a nine part review of The Attack of the Clones?



Oh and Draxas? That is cool. Really cool.

I'm always up for a bit of immature humor when it comes to Garry's Mod. IMO this is probably the best Gmod series out there, too bad DasBoSchitt doesn't {Seem to} work on these anymore



Don't ask me why I think 4:46 is the best part of the episode :mrgreen:
