This channel is bonkers. I love the titles: "Top 10 Best Dangerous Superpowers of Water 2017"

A lot of the videos are junk, but the rest are pretty cool.

Between the Scenes is the best part of TDS because Trevor Noah is a really gifted comedian, conversationalist, and storyteller. But this one is particularly good because there is no point during which he is in control of his show.

not worthwhile so much as culturally indicative:

Hugh, that was great. (And reminds me of the difference between moderately talented and like majorly charismatic. I feel like Anna Kendrick can probably do that to most people).

That redeemed Noah Trevor to a certain level for me. I think I just hate his writers.

A nice treat for people who want to spend 21 minutes watching Nic Cage talk about Nic Cage, which might just be me and dbcooper. For the record, it took me until 08:54 to wonder why he's wearing a white leather jacket.

Speaking of Nic Cage, a friend made me this sharps container and it is one of my most prized possessions.

Spoiler: the pimp rings distract you from the white leather jacket. He does not discuss the bees.

Also, it made me irrationally happy that he has a 'no step on snek' hat.

I've watched a few of his videos, but I get a little impatient with his line-by-line analysis sometimes.

I recently discovered The History Guy. Wonderful 10 minute stories of things we've almost forgotten.

There's a pretty popular hot take among film critics and others that the Incredibles movies are uncut Randian propaganda. This is a decent video essay on how they are actually more complicated than that.

I just watched a couple Weezy Waiter videos. It don't remember what they were about. But he's got snappy delivery, wry humor, and mastery of the edit as punchline. That's all I really want in a YouTube channel.
